Ku Klux Klan Member Was a Hero In the Democratic Party and Clinton’s “Mentor”

“Look at the way that the Republican party treated David Duke vs. the Democratic party treating someone like Robert Byrd. The Republicans repudiated Duke. He was a controversial figure, they wanted to throw him out of the Republican party from the beginning.

Obama didn’t touch the topic of his Klan membership…” —Dinesh D’Souza
