From 8-25-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
Did you hear the one about Hillary Clinton and the Klansman? Hillary called him her “friend and mentor.”
There was a guy in the Senate named Robert C. Byrd. Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. He held the title of Exalted Cyclops and was a recruiter for the Klan. He was also a member of the Democratic Party.
Now remember, it was Democrats who supported slavery and fought to expand it. Democrats were the ones who opposed desegregation. Don’t ever forget that. Don’t let the left try to rewrite history. They’re real good at that.
Robert Byrd was a hardcore Klansman. He would recruit young angry white men to go around and lynch black people. To this day, Robert Byrd holds the record for the longest filibuster in Senate history. Byrd filibustered for 14 hours. What was he filibustering? The 1964 Civil Rights Act.
That’s Robert Byrd. That’s someone Hillary Clinton has praised. There is a picture that shows them practically making out. Before Jeff Bezos turned the Washington Post into a liberal hack rag, they published an article entitled A Senator’s Shame. The article focused on Byrd trying to downplay his involvement in the Klan as he got older.
This isn’t a DUI arrest, or getting caught in a men’s bathroom tapping your toe in a stall in an attempt to get fellatio. This isn’t even sticking a cigar in a woman’s vagina. This is being a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Remember how much heat Steve Scalise got for giving a speech where some members of the audience were part of a white supremacist group? Remember when George Allen was crucified for calling an Indian reporter a macaca?
Neither George W. Bush, Larry Craig, Bill Clinton, Steve Scalise or George Allen were members of the KKK. Hillary’s friend and mentor Robert Byrd was. This is legit. It’s not a conspiracy theory. Robert Byrd was an Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan, and Hillary has the nerve to imply Donald Trump is a racist?
When Byrd died in 2010, Hillary did a video tribute to him, where she said:
Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor Robert C. Byrd.
Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility. And I will remember him for many things, but most of all, for a heartfelt comment he made to me in the dark days following the attack on our country on 9/11.
My state of New York was reeling and we were scrambling to provide support and relief. ‘Think of me as the third senator from New York,’ he said. And he meant it.
Thanks to the leadership of Senator Byrd, who chaired the Appropriations Committee, New Yorkers and Americans got the help we needed.
I will never forget his devotion and his friendship in that critical time.
It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not just its longest serving member, he was its heart, its soul, and its historian.
From my first day in the Senate, I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom.
I admired his tireless advocacy for his West Virginia constituents, his fierce defense of the Constitution and the traditions of the Senate, and his passion for a government that improves the lives of the people it serves.
As Secretary of State, I continued to rely on his advice and counsel. I’ve been grateful for the support he has provided as a leader of the Appropriations Committee to our diplomats and development workers as they serve our country and advance our interests all over the world.
Robert C. Byrd led by the power of his example, and he made all of us who had the honor of serving as his colleagues better public servants and better citizens. After more than five decades of service, he left an indelible imprint on the Senate, on West Virginia, and on our nation. We will not see his like again.
I am heartened to know that Senator Byrd is now reunited with his beloved Erma, the high-school sweetheart who became his wife of nearly 70 years and the love of his life. My thoughts and prayers are with their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Hillary didn’t have to do this video. She didn’t mention his membership in the Klan or denounce his involvement. She could have, but she didn’t.
Byrd wrote a book in 2005 entitled “Robert C. Byrd: Child of the Appalachian Coalfields” Nowhere in the book is a letter he wrote to a segregationist senator named Theodore G. Bilbo, who along with Byrd, opposed integrating the U.S. military:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
That’s Hillary Clinton’s friend and mentor. Although Byrd claimed to have later regretted his involvement in the KKK, he said this in 2005 when talking about race relations:
“They’re much, much better than they’ve ever been in my life-time … I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us … I just think we talk so much about it that we help to create somewhat of an illusion. I think we try to have good will. My old mom told me, ‘Robert, you can’t go to heaven if you hate anybody.’ We practice that. There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time, if you want to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I’d just as soon quit talking about it so much.”
There you go. Black Lives Matter protesters need to calm down and shut up, because Hillary’s friend and mentor said “those problems are largely behind us.”
Hillary Clinton just released a video where she implies that Donald Trump and his supporters are racists. If Donald Trump wins, the Ku Klux Klan will be running the country. That’s what this video wants you to think. But we already had the KKK running the country. Hillary’s friend and mentor Robert C. Byrd.
You can’t get more desperate than Democrats are right now. For two weeks, Donald Trump has been on point and presidential, and every day more dirt falls on Hillary Clinton. The easiest way to shut down an argument is to accuse the person you’re arguing with of being a racist. Liberals have done it for years. That’s what Hillary and the Dems are trying to do with Trump now.
Don’t fall for it.
