I don't get it

Senator Robert Byrd began his political career in the Klan.

After publicly quitting the Klan, he remained an undercover Klan mole.

As senator, Byrd opposed and/or filibustered all significant civil rights legislation of the '60's.

But, in 2008, he endorsed Obama (against the wishes of 60+% of the Democrats in his state).

Therefore, Senator Byrd is honored as a fighter for social justice worthy of a state funeral.
