White Supremacy in the Democratic Party

Racial hate-mongering is alive and well in the Democratic Party, and anyone who thought Senator Robert Byrd (former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK) was an anomaly should probably check out this man:
A Democratic candidate for Alabama attorney general denies the Holocaust occurred and said Friday he will speak this weekend in New Jersey to a "pro-white" organization that is widely viewed as being racist.

Larry Darby concedes his views are radical, but he said they should help him win wide support among Alabama voters as he tries to "reawaken white racial awareness" with his campaign against Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson.

Darby, founder of the Atheist Law Center and a longtime supporter of separation of church and state, ... also has publicly advocated legalizing drugs and shooting all illegal immigrants.
In their defense, Alabama Democratic Party officials began looking into the candidate just last week (although Darby has been campaigning long enough that an April poll showed him trailing the other Democratic Primary candidate by only nine percentage points). The big money quote from state Democratic Chairman Joe Turnham:
While the party supports the free-speech rights of any candidate, Turnham said some of Darby's views appear to be in "a realm of thought that is unacceptable."

"We have Holocaust survivors and families of Holocaust survivors here in Alabama, and many of them are members of the Democratic Party," said Turnham.
