Left-wing mobs are okay with memorials to racists, accused rapists and murders — as long as they’re liberals.
As agitators move from Southern town to Southern town to tear down and uproot Confederate relics, four statues in American city stand safe fro, progressive harm.
Former West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd stands tall. He’s so well respected, he was named “West Virginian of the 20th Century.”
Why won't the left tear down the statue of Democrat KKK leader and Hillary Clinton supporter Robert Byrd?

When he died in 2010, the New York Times acknowledged, “A former member of the Ku Klux Klan, he filibustered against the 1964 Civil Rights Act…”
Brutal Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin remains untouched near Seattle, Washington.

Standing 18 feet tall, the monument is to positively remember the thug who oversaw the deaths of 9 million due to war, terror and famine.

He’s a noted racist, as The American Mirror has previously reported:
Several particularly egregious and racist quotes have been attributed to LBJ. As observed at the Huffington Post, LBJ said in 1948 that President Truman’s civil rights proposal…
…is a farce and a sham…I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill … I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.
So why was LBJ for Republican-passed civil rights legislation in 1964 (a watered-down version of the 1957 civil rights legislation under Eisenhower), but against it in 1948? Just like President Obama, LBJ was evidently not concerned about the plight of black Americans but rather about the continuation of a progressive agenda.
Consider that LBJ’s failed “$20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty” known as the Orwellian-sounding “great society” program has been the single greatest contributor of the breakdown of black families in America.
As noted at Business Insider:
There is more drug addiction and more social and family breakdown among this population than when the Great Society was launched.
LBJ pushed ahead with his “great society” program “which gave rise to Medicaid, Head Start and a broad range of other federal anti-poverty programs,” declaring that “negroes” are “getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness….” and claimed further that his efforts would secure the vote of the “nig*ers” for “200 years.”
As noted in 2013 at the Washington Post:
“Nearly 50 years after the release of the U.S. Department of Labor report ‘The Negro Family: The Case for National Action,’ which was highly controversial and widely criticized at the time, the new Urban Institute study found that the alarming statistics in the report back then ‘have only grown worse, not only for blacks, but for whites and Hispanics as well.’”
Importantly, the man who most influenced the Great Society initiative was the founder of the radical group “Democratic Socialists of America,” Communist Michael Harrington (see here, here and here).
And then there’s accused rapist Bill Clinton.
Standing tall in Rapid City, South Dakota, the former president’s monument is a reminder to Juanita Broaddrick of what she says he did to her in a Little Rock, Arkansas hotel room in 1978.
Attention Liberals! Why not demand the statue of this rapist, William Jefferson Clinton, be removed? pic.twitter.com/6rDqGQKhUy

“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped m and Hillary tried to silence me,” Broaddrick tweeted in January 2016.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

“I am now 73….it never goes away.”
The same can be said for Clinton’s statue, thanks to hypocritical progressives.
In progressive speak, Clinton, Johnson, Byrd and Lenin are “fellow travelers.”
