Has everyone forgotten about how the democrats and the liberal mainstream media had a cow over comments made by republican Trent Lott at Sen. Strom Thurmond’s 100th birthday party? Lott was forced to resign as Senate Republican majority leader.
Here’s what Lott said, “When Strom Thurmond ran for president we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years either.” In 1948, Thurmond ran for U.S. president as a segregationist.
Now, let’s get real folks. Lott is not an idiot. In 2007, no politician in his right mind would publicly say he is for segregation. So, that is obviously not what Lott meant by his comment. Lott was simply attempting to make an old man feel good.
Like sharks smelling blood in the water, the democrats and liberal mainstream media pounced on Lott’s comment. It was a golden opportunity for the democrats and liberal mainstream media to play their favorite sport, “slay the republican”. Lott was instantly and viciously tarred and feathered as a racist. Lott humbly apologized a za-gillion times while enduring a tsunami of verbal floggings in the media. Still, it was not enough. Lott was guillotined from his role as majority leader.
Meanwhile, the late democrat Sen. Robert Byrd was a bona fide member of the KKK. He even founded a chapter. At Sen. Byrd’s funeral, Bill Clinton and President Obama basically gave Byrd a pass for his involvement with the Klan. The liberal mainstream media is strangely silent regarding Byrd’s racism. The liberal mainstream media chooses to ignore real democrat racism while reading implied racism into virtually every republican comment. They clearly invoke a double standard.
Clinton, Obama and the liberal mainstream media giving Byrd a pass for his Klan activities confirms that their mission to further their progressive agenda trumps everything including racism, adultery, scandals, bribery or whatever. Byrd faithfully voted for every far left progressive “against the will of the American people” item on the democrat’s agenda.
This is the reason presidents Clinton and Obama gave Sen. Byrd a pass for holding the position of “Kleagle” which means recruiter and “Exalted Cyclops” of the “let’s hang the black guy” club. Sen. Byrd also opposed the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
In their typical double standard fashion, the democrats and liberal media condemned Lott’s comment as being, “racially insensitive”. And yet, Sen Byrd used the “N” word twice during a 2001 Fox News TV interview without a “peep” from the dems or the liberal media.
In fairness, Sen. Byrd said he had a change of heart regarding blacks in his elder years. But, the democrats and liberal mainstream media’s crucifixion of republican Trent Lott for making a comment while giving Byrd a pass for his participation as an activist, recruiter and founder of a violent, racist, hate organization which actually lynched blacks is breathtakingly hypocritical.
