Senator-for-life Robert Byrd is being tenderly eulogized today in the media, who dutifully reminds us of his early KKK affiliations, then tells a noble tale of redemption by his later virtuous work on behalf of civil rights.
It's all such bullshit.
When Byrd was finally forced to abandon his disgusting racism, he simply refocused his foul bigotry on gay Americans.
Transferring one's bigotry to a different group doesn't redeem a goddam thing.
The world is a fractionally more intelligent, nicer place today.
