Americans Demand Removal of Offensive Statue Honoring KKK Wizard Robert Byrd
Confederate Monuments are all under attack and now Democrats are calling for the removal of known KKK leader Robert Byrd’s statue from the State Capital in West Virginia.
Interestingly this statue never garnered a second look until Charlottesville, Virginia and furthermore, the statue is in honor of a man Hillary has revealed as a personal mentor for her career.
Liberty One reached out to the head of the local Democrat Party in West Virginia, but we were told to back off and that the the statue of a “great leader” of the Democrats would never be removed under any circumstances. We were told that we were alt-right lunatics and Robert Byrd was a ‘great man’. When asked about why liberals were fine with tearing down civil war heroes’ statues, the only reply was “Screw you, this statue is not going anywhere!’
Liberals continue to prove their hypocrisy by both loving and condemning Byrd for his role in promoting the notorious KKK.
Many Americans will be stunned to discover that inside the West Virginia State Capitol building, sitting in a place of great honor, is a statue of a once prominent and proud KKK recruiter and national leader.
His name is Robert C. Byrd. Byrd was a lifelong Democrat from West Virginia. For most of his young life, Byrd was an unapologetic KKK advocate, leader, and money raiser. He has defended the hate group in print and utilized their white nationalist sentiments to his political gain.
According to a damning report by The Washington Post:
In the early 1940s, a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the “Grand Dragon” for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.
As Byrd recalls now, the Klan official, Joel L. Baskin of Arlington, Va., was so impressed with the young Byrd’s organizational skills that he urged him to go into politics. “The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation,” Baskin said.
