It is Time to Expunge the Memory Of Democrat Senator Robert ‘KKK’ Byrd from Society

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]While the country is suddenly possessed with fundamentally transforming, i.e., censoring American history by removing anything political correctness police deem “offensive,” the progressive controlists may want to start removing any mention or reference to deceased Democrat Robert Byrd (alias: Cornelius Calvin Sale, Jr.), a vile racist who was not only a member of the Ku Klux Klan, a branch of the Democrat Party, but was actually a recruiter and “Grand Kleagle” for the violent and extremely racist hate group.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Byrd’s racism was rewarded by the Democrat Party by making him, at the time of his death in 2010, the longest-serving member in the history of the U.S. Congress (1959-2010), and by making Byrd the Democrat Leader in the U.S. Senate for many years.

So respected was the former KKK leader by the Democrats, the party that gave America slavery, Jim Crow laws, and segregation that he was christened with the nickname “conscience of the Senate” by his Democrat colleagues as well as by the leftstream media.

So respected was the Klansman that Barack Obama himself, who happens to be half-black, delivered Byrd’s eulogy at his funeral service in 2010, opining that over the years Byrd had become “more perfect.”

But if the Confederate Flag, a part of American history, is now suddenly so racist that it must be expunged from American society, shouldn’t any public display of Democrat racist Robert Byrd be as well?

As you can see below, via Wikipedia, the number of statues, monuments, college buildings, highways, bridges, courthouses and other government buildings bearing Byrd’s name is vast. Yes, the longterm “King of Pork” soaked billions from American taxpayers in other states to erect public memorials in the name of the narcissistic Klansman, so that he would remain with us for eternity.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]Well, he was a racist, and his racism has got to be offensive to millions of Americans. I mean, what could be more offensive that someone who was a KKK leader? Shouldn’t his name be wiped from our memory? Certainly, if progressives are truly targeting the erasing of anything racist from society, Byrd MUST be included in their massive project, correct?

Popular radio talk show host Andrew Wilkow thinks so, and has started a petition to remove Robert Byrd from the public space, including schools, roadways and government buildings, a list of which you can see below:
