Yesterday I told you that a bunch of Hollywood babies threw a temper tantrum and got the New Yorker to disinvite former Trump advisor Steve Bannon from an event. Chelsea Clinton too was upset that anyone with a different point of view should be allowed to express themselves in public, so she jumped on the “silence the right” bandwagon. Because she is an utter dimwit however, she managed to point out what a couple of racist bigots her parents are.
Here’s a tweet from the poster child for self-awareness deficiency:
For anyone who wonders what normalization of bigotry looks like, please look no further than Steve Bannon being invited by both @TheEconomist & @NewYorker to their respective events in #NYC a few weeks apart. https://t.co/u0TDfCYrQ1

Gosh, letting someone speak in public is normalizing bigotry? Well, what would Chelsea call this?
That’s a picture of Chelsea’s dad Bill from Aretha Franklin’s funeral last week. You may notice that Bill is standing next to Jesse Jackson who one referred to Jews as “Hymies” and NYC as “Hymietown.” Bill is also with Al Sharpton who called the great Greek philosophers “homos” and said “crackers” were inferior to back people. Oh and let’s not forget that guy on the end. Yes, Bill Clinton is actually standing with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farakkhan, who wants to exterminate the white race as well as the Jewish people.
I feel like hanging out with bigots in a public setting is definitely normalizing bigotry, don’t you?
Let’s check in Chelsea’s mom Hillary to see if she ever normalized bigotry:
Well I’ll be damned. That’s Hillary Clinton sucking face with democrat Robert Byrd. If that name is unfamiliar to you, he was a Senator from West Virginia and someone who Hillary considered her mentor. He was also a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. This is no bullshit. Here’s a fun thing from Wikipedia:
In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia.
According to Byrd, a Klan official told him, “You have a talent for leadership, Bob … The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation.” Byrd later recalled, “Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did.” Byrd became a recruiter and leader of his chapter. When it came time to elect the top officer (Exalted Cyclops) in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.
In December 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
— Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944
In 1946, Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard stating, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”
If making out with a Grand Cyclops of the KKK isn’t normalizing bigotry, I don’t know what is.
Plus who can forget this:
The above picture is reportedly of Hillary in blackface with then-boyfriend Bill at a costume party. Snopes “debunked” this picture because, and I’m not making this up, the photo did not originate with Hillary Clinton’s campaign. I chose to believe this is a legitimate shot of Hillary and Bill being racist AF.
So thanks to Chelsea’s family we all now know what normalizing bigotry looks like.
