@WalshFreedom  Of his time in the Klan Byrd said, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times...and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened. " That "apologize " thing makes Byrd's case different from Trump's, no?

2/ We made a list of all the Nazis and Klan leaders and other hate extremists who endorsed Trump in 2016, after he'd signaled again and again and again he was with them:

McCarthy is targeting me for 1 reason: I’m effective. He wants to carry water (& sort Starbursts) for Trump’s Big Lie & not be called out. He’s projecting onto me b/c he’s incapable of facing down the klan'>Ku Klux Klan elements in his caucus. If he thinks he’s silencing me, he’s not.

Mount Rushmore was built on land that belonged to the Lakota tribe and sculpted by a man who had strong bonds with the klan'>Ku Klux Klan. It features the faces of 2 U.S. presidents who were slaveholders.

Hillary and Obama say their mentor was Robert Byrd, a longtime “exalted Cyclops” in the klan'>Ku Klux Klan. Biden’s Senate buddies were segregationists. Hunter uses the N-word. Sheldon Whitehouse belongs to an all-white club. Still have any doubt about which is the party of racism?

Racism doesn’t just look like a white man in blackface or a Klan hood. Sometimes, it looks like a calling increased ballot access a “power grab.” My latest for , on Mitch McConnell, persisting nevertheless with voter suppression.

Grant did briefly own one slave he freed years before the war; but as a general he smashed the Confederacy, and as president he crushed the Klan. He presided over the ratification of the 15th Amendment. People going after Grant probably just want to break things.

Whatever happens, we have lost. Half this nation voted for white supremacy, sexual assault, and more. The Klan is happy. We should be sad.

I can’t believe we are having a debate on whether the guy in the blackface or the guy with the Klan hood is worse. No. Shhhh. How about this? Just don’t be a fucking racist. #NorthamMustResign 

If this is true, LBJ becomes the third Democratic President to be either a member or avid supporter of the klan'>Ku Klux Klan

Arpaio in 2007 on being compared to the Klan: “I think it’s an honor. It means we are doing something.”

Fun fact: We didn't always have a Justice Department. President Grant created it in 1870 to protect black civil rights and smash the Klan.
