I was inclined to let the guy go until I made the unfortunate decision to turn on the Sunday morning talk and news shows, where he is being warmly eulogized.
Is there any one individual who more typifies the complete corruption of the system? Robert Byrd is the perfect example of white socialism subsumed under mainstream socialism. His Klan leadership- he was founder of a new chapter, a recruiter and an officer, no joiner- fits perfectly with all his other political activities.
Still the eulogizing is a little curious. He was just a stooge, an unusually good one but just a stooge nonetheless. Why was he so important to them? I guess because subsuming the white socialist is an important part of the overall strategy. The ideology is designed to appeal to a broad variety of people, but can’t appeal to everybody. The ability to control people by fear and greed alone is necessary also.
God will be Robert Byrd’s final judge. But if we believe Dante, there are people who can’t even get into Hell, and their resemblance to him is remarkable-
|22||Resounded through the air pierc’d by no star,|
|23||That e’en I wept at entering. Various tongues,|
|24||Horrible languages, outcries of woe,|
|25||Accents of anger, voices deep and hoarse,|
|26||With hands together smote that swell’d the sounds,|
|27||Made up a tumult, that for ever whirls|
|28||Round through that air with solid darkness stain’d,|
|29||Like to the sand that in the whirlwind flies.|
|30||I then, with error yet encompass’d, cried:|
|31||O master! What is this I hear? What race|
|32||Are these, who seem so overcome with woe?|
|33||He thus to me: This miserable fate|
|34||Suffer the wretched souls of those, who liv’d|
|35||Without or praise or blame, with that ill band|
|36||Of angels mix’d, who nor rebellious prov’d|
|37||Nor yet were true to God, but for themselves|
|38||Were only. From his bounds Heaven drove them forth,|
|39||Not to impair his lustre, nor the depth|
|40||Of Hell receives them, lest th’ accursed tribe|
|41||Should glory thence with exultation vain.|
