After the murders of nine people at AME Emanuel Church in Charleston, SC Gov. Nikki Haley ordered the Confederate flag removed from the State Capitol. In addition, media and others have been calling for a “rethink” about things like the
Jefferson Memorial, General Lee park, the Washington Monument, and even the American flag.

Should we at least include in the debate about things to be stricken from public view the several dozen public buildings, roads and bridges named after Robert Byrd, the Democrat West Virginia Senator who was before that a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan? Seems like the former Kleagle and politician who filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act should at least be in the mix of the discussion about people who shouldn’t be honored with taxpayer money, and apparently I’m not alone:

Just something to think about.

Update:

I imagine some Dems might defend Byrd the same way Bill Clinton did: By saying that he only joined the KKK to get elected.

Somebody should ask Hillary her opinion about all this if she ever decides to answer a question.
