Limbaugh: Liberals Clinton and Obama Laud Robert Byrd (RIP), Rewrite His History with the Klan

Senator Robert Byrd, dead at age 92, is laid to rest and Bill Clinton and President Barrack Obama repeat lies and misrepresentations about a long time former Klan leader for selfish purposes at his funeral.

Liberals attack Conservatives as racists for disagreements but expressing love, forgiveness and not telling the truth about an ally who lead the Klan for decades is too much. Rush Limbaugh discusses it.

Transcript from Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: Bill Clinton was at the funeral of Robert Byrd today and said that Robert Byrd joined the Klan to get elected, and that kind of made it okay for a while.

CLINTON: There are a lot of people who wrote these eulogies for Senator Byrd in the newspapers, and I read a bunch of them, and they mentioned that he once had a fleeting association with the Klu (sic) Klux Klan and what does that mean. I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and the hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected, and maybe he did something he shouldn't have done, and he spent the rest of his life making it up -- and that's what a good person does.

AUDIENCE: (applauding)

CLINTON: There are no perfect people! There are certainly no perfect politicians.

RUSH: Clinton makes it sound like this is a good old boy from the hollows and the hills in West Virginia. (doing impression) "I tell you, a lot of people who wrote these eulogies for Senator Byrd, newspapers. I've read a bunch of them -- and by the way I said, "Klu" Klux Klan. It's Ku Klux Klan, I misspoke. Limbaugh can correct me on that. But he was a country boy from the hills and the hollows of West Virginia trying to get elected like all of us were, and he did something he shouldn'ta done." He didn't just go to a couple of meetings, Slick Willie! he was a Grand Cyclops! He got pretty close to the Grand Kleagle. He was an Exalted Cyclops! This was not just a casual association that Senator Byrd had.

later in the brocast, repeating the information

CLINTON: There are no perfect people! There are certainly no perfect politicians.

RUSH: All right, now the whole purpose here is to try to scrub the truth -- and, again, the man has passed away, but if the Democrats are going to continue to do this, I am going to hold them to the facts. Why even bring this up? They coulda gotten away without even mentioning this. I mean, it's a long ago thing, why even bring it up? They bring it up because they want to continue to distort it, and you'll find out why when I tell you. He's described as having a "fleeting association" with the Klan.

An Exalted Cyclops means he was a recruiter. Robert Byrd formed a KKK chapter. He didn't just go to a couple of meetings. A Kleagle was a recruiter, and he was a recruiter for the KKK for years. He formed his chapter in 1943. He was still writing about the "vital need" for the Klan in 1946. Oh, yeah. Fleeting association. Repentant. Making up for it.

CLINTON APRIL 24, 1995: We hear so many loud and angry voices in America today whose sole goal seems to be to try to keep some people as paranoid as possible and the rest of us all torn up and upset with each other. They spread hate. They leave the impression that -- by their very words, that -- violence is a acceptable. You ought to see -- I'm sure you are now seeing the reports of some things that are regularly said over the airwaves in America today. It is time we all stood up and spoke against that kind of (pounding podium) reckless speech and behavior.

FOLLOWERS: (applause)

RUSH: That was Clinton, who made a career linking talk radio to domestic terrorism. He was talking about McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing there, and of course things "regularly said over the airwaves in America," why, that was directed at me. Talk radio. So he's forgiving Robert Byrd, a recruiter for the Klan. They were all glancing over the depth of the association Robert Byrd had with the organization. May 1993 White House Correspondents Dinner, here's Bill Clinton calling me a racist.

CLINTON 1993: Did you like the way Rush took up for Janet Reno the other night on his program? (snickers) He only did it 'cause she was attacked by a black guy.

FOLLOWERS: (applause)

RUSH: White House Correspondents Dinner. Do you think I will be forgiven for things I never even did? I fully doubt it.
