I suggest that a giant statue of U.S. Senator Robert Byrd be placed on a pedestal. Senator Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan throughout most of his career as a U.S. Senator. The statue should depict Senator Byrd wearing his Ku Klux Klan robe depicting his highly important status in the Klan.
A bronze plaque should be affixed to the statue and should read: ” Robert C. Byrd was a Democrat U.S. Senator from West Virginia. As a member of the Ku Klux Klan, Senator Byrd served as an exalted leader of the KKK as well as a Democrat Leader of the United States Senate. Mr. Byrd served as a U.S. Senator from January 3, 1959 to June 28, 2010. He served as : 1) The Majority Whip, 2) The Senate Majority Leader, 3) President pro tempore emeritus of the U.S. Senate, 4) Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, and 5) President pro tempore of the U.S. Senate. He was the longest serving senator in U.S. history. He led the 1964 Filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. ”
I suggest that this statue be placed in the 43rd. Congressional District of California. This congressional district is located in South Los Angeles and is presently represented by Democrat Maxine Waters. I suggest that this statue be placed upon federal land and fenced off. However, the U.S. Government should rent space for three Civil War Historical stands to individuals who wish to sell Civil War souvenirs and souvenirs of the Ku Klux Klan.
