Clinton spoke at KKK member, Robert Byrd’s, funeral. “He said: Well, you can’t be too hard on Byrd for being in the Klan because you had to be in the Klan to advance the Democratic party. Think about that: you had to be in the Ku Klux Klan to advance the Democratic party. In 1924, there was a resolution to condemn the Klan at the Democratic National Convention, it failed!
The Democrats voted down the concept of condemning the Klan…because the Klan was doing their dirty work for them. The Klan was going around terrorizing blacks, not just blacks, white Republicans. And this is how the Democrats were able to maintain white supremacy throughout much of the south.”
