Klansman, Racist, and Democrat Robert Byrd’s Name and Portrait Must be Removed


In the early 1940s Robert Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia…. In 1946 Byrd wrote the following to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:

“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side… 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.”

“In 1946 Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard stating ‘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.’”

His portrait needs to be removed from the lobby of the capitol.
