Its hard to avoid politics, but Obama really attracted a lot of insane people beside kids, and old leather hippies.
Caution: Some words and quotes from Senate Byrd are very offensive. You been warned
Obama Endorsed by KKK's Most Successful Leader[
MAY 26, 2008
By: Brian Akira
[b]Obama is proud to have received the endorsement of America's senior KKK politician.
Democrat Robert "Sheets" Byrd, as President pro tempore of the United States Senate, is third in line (after Cheney and Pelosi) for the presidency of the United States.
Bobby "I'm-Plumb-Fit-To-Lynch-Me-A-N*****" Byrd's endorsement should help Senator Obama in the upcoming election. Even though many Democrat voters are on record as saying they’ll never vote for a Negro, Senator Byrd's seal of approval may convince the KKK-wing of the party that there might be something to be gained by making an exception for Obama.
Byrd's political career began when he was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops of his local KKK chapter. In his autobiography, he related how a KKK official–whose identity Byrd has wisely protected–told him "You have a talent for leadership, Bob!" Perhaps even then it was clear how close this fine, upstanding good ol' boy would eventually come to the presidency.
Byrd: "Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities!"
Byrd declined to serve in the Second World War, no doubt out of respect for Herr Hitler's racial policies. During the war, he declared, "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side." The future Senator Byrd kept himself busy during the war years with his Klan activities, fighting Negroes, The Jews, Papists and Republicans.
After the unfortunate defeat of his beloved Führer, Byrd informed Senator Theodore Bilbo that he would never serve in a military corrupted by the presence of Negroes. "Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds," he wrote.
Dejected and embittered by the collapse of the Third Reich, in 1947 he wrote to a Grand Wizard that, "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia [and] in every state in the nation."
Senator Byrd is truly a giant among Democrat politicians:
He has been elected to the Senate for nine consecutive terms
He is longest-serving senator in American history
He has never lost an election
He has cast more votes than any senator in history
He proudly stood up for the White race when he filibustered and voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964
He voted against the Voting Rights Act of 1965
He is known as "The King of Pork" for his success at diverting tax dollars to West Virginia
He is the only senator to have voted both of the African Americans who have been nominated to the Supreme Court
He opposed Justice Thomas on the grounds that Thomas was an uppity Blacks and a racist
He opposed the nomination of Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State
He firmly opposes Gay Marriage, Gays in the Military, Affirmative Action, Homeland Security, the Iraq War, and the Right to Life
He refuses to indicate whether he has personally lynched any Blacks
He has said that when he realized the times they were a-changin’, he decided to conceal his racism and his segregationist views and move to the Democratic Party mainstream in order to play a role in national politics.
[b]He says he also had a change of heart after his grandson died in 1982, and he realized that Blacks might also have human feelings.
As he stated in 2001, "I think we talk about race too much. … There are white n*****. I’ve seen a lot of white n***** in my time."
Subsequently, he received an approval rating of 100% from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's in 2004, and a 67% rating from the ACLU in 2006.
Byrd endorses Barackmadenijad Obama for President of the United States. Byrd has said, "Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support."
As a rich descendant of slave-owners, Senator Obama is perhaps counting on senators like Bobby "KKK" Byrd to keep any bills demanding Reparations from becoming law.
Jesus loves you, everyone else think you an asshole.
I really don't think this thread is necessary. It is also in the wrong section, has no real discussion.
