A few months ago, when they were removing the Confederate flag from the statehouse in South Carolina, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton preached, “€œI appreciate the actions begun yesterday by the governor and others in South Carolina to remove the Confederate flag from the statehouse, recognizing it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past that has no place in our present or our future.”€ She then added, “€œIt shouldn”€™t fly there. It shouldn”€™t fly anywhere.”€ That flag is a Democrat’s flag. As I said in my video to promote the petition, the bones they want to dig up in Memphis are Democrat bones. The high school Julianne Moore wants changed is named after a Democrat. The Confederate soldiers the NAACP wants sandblasted off Stone Mountain like the Taliban did to the Buddha of Bamiyan are all Democrats. It’s your history you”€™re trying to erase, Hillary.

This is what I like about Robert C. Byrd. He personifies the myth that the left’s prejudice is from so long ago it’s irrelevant. When he died in 2010, he was the longest-running senator in American history. He started out as a Klan organizer and was promoted to “€œExalted Cyclops”€ for recruiting 150 members. In a letter to fellow segregationist (and Democrat) Theodore Bilbo, he said he”€™d rather die “€œa thousand times”€ than be with Negroes, who are “€œrace mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”€ This wasn”€™t a brief phase that he quickly recovered from. He personally filibustered against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with a 14-hour speech and was the only person to vote against affirming both black U.S. Supreme Court justices. When asked about this in 2001, he shrugged and said, “€œThere are white niggers, too.”€

You don”€™t get to be self-righteous about racism when your team has been doling it out without a break since 1776. So let’s give them a taste of their own medicine. They started this mess. Let’s play it out. We don”€™t really want every flag taken down as Hillary suggested. We don”€™t really want every racist name scrubbed out of the history books. It’s an experiment. Sort of like forcing Muslim bakeries to bake gay wedding cakes or having feminists live under the Sharia law they condone with their multicultural claptrap. The woman in charge of naming public buildings is Denise Turner Roth. The fact that she’s an African-American woman of color makes this crusade particularly sweet. We are going to bombard her with thousands of signatures until a prominent black politician is forced to erase her own party’s racism. In its place will be this new milestone: the year we gave the left a taste of its own bullshit. Let’s Take Byrd Down.
