  • 1. A Senators ShameBy Eric PianinWashington Post Staff WriterSunday, June 19, 2005In the early 1940s, a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrdrecruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. AfterByrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from everyapplicant, the "Grand Dragon" for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny CrabOrchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.As Byrd recalls now, the Klan official, Joel L. Baskin of Arlington, Va., was soimpressed with the young Byrds organizational skills that he urged him to go intopolitics. "The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation," Baskinsaid.The young Klan leader went on to become one of the most powerful and enduring figuresin modern Senate history. Throughout a half-century on Capitol Hill, Sen. Robert C. Byrd(D-W.Va.) has twice held the premier leadership post in the Senate, helped winratification of the Panama Canal treaty, squeezed billions from federal coffers to aid hishome state, and won praise from liberals for his opposition to the war in Iraq and hisdefense of minority party rights in the Senate.Despite his many achievements, however, the venerated Byrd has never been able to fullyerase the stain of his association with one of the most reviled hate groups in the nationshistory."It has emerged throughout my life to haunt and embarrass me and has taught me in avery graphic way what one major mistake can do to ones life, career, and reputation,"Byrd wrote in a new memoir -- "Robert C. Byrd: Child of the Appalachian Coalfields" --that will be published tomorrow by West Virginia University Press.The 770-page book is the latest in a long series of attempts by the 87-year-oldDemocratic patriarch to try to explain an event early in his life that threatens to definehim nearly as much as his achievements in the Senate. In it, Byrd says he viewed theKlan as a useful platform from which to launch his political career. He described itessentially as a fraternal group of elites -- doctors, lawyers, clergy, judges and other"upstanding people" who at no time engaged in or preached violence against blacks, Jewsor Catholics, who historically were targets of the Klan.His latest account is consistent with others he has offered over the years that tend tominimize his direct involvement with the Klan and explain it as a youthful indiscretion."My only explanation for the entire episode is that I was sorely afflicted with tunnelvision -- a jejune and immature outlook -- seeing only what I wanted to see because Ithought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talents and ambitions," Byrd wrote.
  • 2. While Byrd provides the most detailed description of his early involvement with theKlan, conceding that he reflected "the fears and prejudices I had heard throughout myboyhood," the account is not complete. He does not acknowledge the full length of timehe spent as a Klan organizer and advocate. Nor does he make any mention of aparticularly incendiary letter he wrote in 1945 complaining about efforts to integrate themilitary.Byrd said in an interview last week that he never intended for his book to provide "finitedetails" of his Klan activities, but to show young people that there are seriousconsequences to ones choices and that "you can rise above your past."He suggested that his career should be judged in light of all that he did subsequently tohelp lift his state out of poverty, and to bring basic and critically needed services andinfrastructure to West Virginia."I grew up in a state where we didnt have much hope," Byrd said. "I wanted to help mypeople and give them hope. . . . Im just proud that the people of West Virginia acceptedme as I was and helped me along the way."Byrds indelible links to the Klan -- the "albatross around my neck," as he once describedit -- shows the remarkable staying power of racial issues more than 40 years after theheight of the civil rights movement. Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) learned that lesson the hardway at a birthday party in December 2002, when his nostalgic words about Sen. StromThurmond (R-S.C.), who ran for president as a segregationist in 1948, caused a publicuproar and cost Lott the majority leaders post.West Virginia has been embroiled in issues of race and civil rights from its inception atthe start of the Civil War, when 55 western mountain counties with few slaves secededfrom Virginia. From the beginning, the rich veins of bituminous coal beneath ruggedmountain ranges drove the states economy, and attracted workers from throughoutAppalachia and immigrants from as far away as Eastern and Southern Europe. Fewblacks settled in the state, and even today African Americans constitute little more than 3percent of the population.A world away from many of the millionaires who inhabit the Senate, Byrd grew up poorbut proud during the Depression, with a stunning work ethic and a hunger to learn. BornCornelius Calvin Sale Jr. in North Wilkesboro, N.C., on Nov. 20, 1917, the future senatorwas a year old when his mother died of influenza. In accordance with her wishes, hisfather dispersed the children among family members. Young Cornelius was sent to livewith an uncle and aunt, Titus and Vlurma Byrd, who settled in southern West Virginia.The Byrds adopted their young nephew and renamed him Robert C. Byrd.Byrd recalls in his book that when he was a small boy, his adoptive father, a coal miner,left him with a friend in Matoaka, W.Va., one Saturday while he went to participate in aparade. Watching from the window, young Byrd saw people dressed in white hoods and
  • 3. robes and wearing white masks over their faces. Some years later, he wrote, he learnedthat his father had been a member of the Klan and took part in the parade.His parents and the boarders who lived with them inculcated Byrd in "the typicalsouthern viewpoint of the time," he wrote. "Blacks were generally distrusted by manywhites, and I suspect they were subliminally feared."West Virginia was never considered a hotbed of Klan activity, as were states in the DeepSouth, but it had its share of violence against blacks and immigrants. Forty-eight people,including 28 blacks, were lynched in West Virginia, mostly during the late 1880s andearly 1900s, according to the Tuskegee University archives. The last two reportedlynchings occurred on Dec. 10, 1931, in Lewisburg, W.Va. By the time Byrd beganorganizing for the Klan during World War II, the organization had largely morphed into amoney-making fraternal organization that was virulently anti-black, anti-Catholic andanti-Semitic.Married, with two daughters, Byrd developed a network of friends and associates whileworking as a meat cutter. He wrote that he became "caught up with the idea of being partof an organization to which leading persons belonged."Byrds book offers a truncated description of his days with the Klan that does notcompletely square with contemporaneous newspaper accounts and letters that show hewas involved with the Klan throughout much of the 1940s, and not merely for two orthree years.According to his book, Byrd wrote to Samuel Green, an Atlanta doctor and "ImperialWizard" of the Ku Klux Klan, in late 1941 or early 1942, expressing interest in joining.Some time later, he received the letter from Baskin, the "Grand Dragon" of mid-Atlanticstates, saying he would come to Byrds home in Crab Orchard whenever Byrd hadrounded up 150 recruits for the Klan.When Baskin finally arrived, the group gathered at the home of C.M. "Clyde" Goodwin,a former local law enforcement official. When it came time to choose the "ExaltedCyclops," the top officer in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.Byrd asserts that his Klan chapter never engaged in or preached violence, "nor did weconduct any parades or marches or other public demonstrations" -- other than one timedelivering a wreath of flowers in the shape of a cross to the home of a member who hadbeen killed in a pistol duel.Byrd wrote that he continued as a "Kleagle" recruiting for the Klan until early 1943,when he and his family left Crab Orchard for a welding job in a Baltimore shipyard.Returning to West Virginia after World War II ended in 1945, he launched his politicalcareer, but not before writing another letter, to one of the Senates most notorioussegregationists, Theodore Bilbo (D-Miss.), complaining about the Trumanadministrations efforts to integrate the military.
  • 4. Byrd said in the Dec. 11, 1945, letter -- which would not become public for 42 moreyears with the publication of a book on blacks in the military during World War II byauthor Graham Smith -- that he would never fight in the armed forces "with a Negro bymy side." Byrd added that, "Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glorytrampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours becomedegraded by race mongrels."With the help of fiddle-playing skills that became his political trademark for decades,Byrd won election to the state legislature, where he served in both chambers until he ranfor the U.S. House in 1952. His political career almost ended there, however, when hisopponents revealed his former ties to the KKK.Confronting the issue, Byrd went on the radio to acknowledge that he belonged to theKlan from "mid-1942 to early 1943," according to newspaper accounts. He explained thathe had joined "because it offered excitement and because it was strongly opposed tocommunism." He said that after about a year, he quit and dropped his membership, andnever was interested in the Klan again.Byrd won the primary, but during the general election campaign, Byrds GOP opponentuncovered a letter Byrd had handwritten to Green, the KKK Imperial Wizard,recommending a friend as a Kleagle and urging promotion of the Klan throughout thecountry. The letter was dated 1946 -- long after the time Byrd claimed he had lost interestin the Klan. "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirthhere in West Virginia," Byrd wrote, according to newspaper accounts of that period. Byrdmakes no mention of the letter in his new book.Stunned Democratic state party officials, including then-Gov. Okey L. Patteson, urgedhim to drop out of the race. Byrd survived the ensuing political firestorm, won thegeneral election and went on to serve six years in the House before winning his Senateseat in 1958. During his Senate campaign, he told a newspaper reporter that he personallyfelt the Klan had been incorrectly blamed for many acts committed by others.Byrds life story is one of political transformation and redemption as he evolved from aredneck politician to a mainstream Democrat in a party dominated by liberals. But therewas no way for him to completely bury his Klan ties, and his past would resurface timeand again throughout his career.During the 1960 presidential campaign, Byrd, who was closely allied with then-SenateMajority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (Tex.), tried to derail the Democratic front-runner,Sen. John F. Kennedy (Mass.), in the crucial West Virginia primary. At Johnsons urging,Byrd supported Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (Minn.) in the primary. Kennedy alliesretaliated with leaks to the press about Byrds work as a Klan organizer. Byrd said in hisbook that as a result he received hate mail and threats on his life.Four years later, Byrds Klan past became an issue again when he joined with othersouthern Democrats to oppose the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Byrd filibustered the bill for
  • 5. more than 14 hours as he argued that it abrogated principles of federalism. He criticizedmost anti-poverty programs except for food stamps. And in 1967, he voted against thenomination of Thurgood Marshall, the first black appointed to the Supreme Court.Transformation Into Leader of SenateHistorians, political analysts and admirers have long sought to reconcile Byrds earlyKlan affiliation with his image as a pillar of the Senate. More extraordinary is how hemanaged to overcome such a blot on his record to twice become Senate majority leader."To imagine someone who was a member of the Klan in his youth who managed tobecome the majority leader of the Senate, its really quite striking," said congressionalscholar Thomas E. Mann of the Brookings Institution.Byrd said last week that his membership in the Baptist church tempered his views andmarked "the beginning of big changes in me." And like other southern and border-stateDemocrats of his time, Byrd came to realize that he would have to temper his blatantlysegregationist views and edge toward his partys mainstream if he wanted to advance onthe national stage.As a rising member of the leadership, Byrd paid close attention to minor legislative andscheduling details that made life easier for other senators, always showed colleagueselaborate courtesy, and wrote thank you notes on the slightest pretext. In 1971, hechallenged Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (Mass.) for the majority whip post and unseatedhim, after securing the death-bed proxy of the legendary Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-Ga.),another of Byrds mentors and the architect of the southern filibuster against civil rightslegislation.When Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.) retired as majority leader in 1976, Byrd easilycaptured the post."Byrds whole life became the Senate, seven days a week, 24/7, always on call," saidMerle Black, an Emory University expert on southern politics. "The goal wasinstitutional power, to be influential in the Senate."But his transformation to mainstream Senate leader was far from smooth, and his culturalconservatism, emphasis on "law and order," and strong support for the Vietnam Warduring the 1960s and 1970s put him at odds with blacks and many lawmakers in his ownparty.James Tolbert, president of the West Virginia chapter of the NAACP and an occasionalcritic of the senator, said Byrd transcended his past by gradually embracing moreenlightened social views and by simply owning up to his past mistakes. "He doesnt try tolie his way out of things," Tolbert said. "If hes wrong, hell say hes wrong."
  • 6. By relentlessly serving his states economic interests, Byrd has secured his place as WestVirginias preeminent politician. As a long-reigning chairman and ranking member of theAppropriations Committee, Byrd pumped billions of dollars worth of jobs, programs andprojects into the state that did not have a single mile of divided four-lane highway whenhe began his political career. More than three dozen bridges, highways, schools andpublic buildings are named for him.Still, says Ken Hechler, 90, a liberal Democratic former U.S. House member from WestVirginia who served with Byrd in Congress, "Its impossible for anyone to try towhitewash the KKK and its overall symbolism.""But at the same time," he added, "we honor those people who publicly admit the error oftheir ways."Last week, Byrd said: "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. Iapologized a thousand times . . . and I dont mind apologizing over and over again. I canterase what happened."Robert ByrdSenator Robert Byrd was a Kleagle, a Klan recruiter, in his 20s and 30s.West Virginias Democratic United States Senator Robert C. Byrd was a recruiter for theKlan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of hislocal chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his earlypolitical career. Though he claimed to have left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote aletter in 1946 to the groups Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as neverbefore, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd defended the Klanin his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.[10]Despite being the only Senator to vote against both African American U.S. SupremeCourt nominees (liberal Thurgood Marshall and conservative Clarence Thomas) andfilibustering the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Byrd has since said joining the Klan was his"greatest mistake." The NAACP gave him a 100% rating on their issues during the 108thCongress.[11] However, in a 2001 incident Byrd repeatedly used the phrase "whiteniggers" on a national television broadcast.[12]In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a newchapter of the Ku Klux Klan.[9]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 laterrecalled, "suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized myabilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had neverreally hit me. But strike me that night, it did."[9] Byrd held the titles Kleagle (recruiter)and Exalted Cyclops.[9] When it came time to elect the "Exalted Cyclops", the top officerin the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.[9]
  • 7. In 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:[17]“ I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die athousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see thisbeloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackestspecimen from the wilds.” — Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944, In 1946 or 1947, Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard stating, "The Klan is neededtoday as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and inevery state in the nation."[19] However, when running for the United States House ofRepresentatives in 1952, he announced "After about a year, I became disinterested, quitpaying my dues, and dropped my membership in the organization. During the nine yearsthat have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan." He said he had joined theKlan because he felt it offered excitement and was anti-communist.[9]In 1997, Byrd told an interviewer he would encourage young people to become involvedin politics but also: "Be sure you avoid the Ku Klux Klan. Dont get that albatross aroundyour neck. Once youve made that mistake, you inhibit your operations in the politicalarena."[20] In his last autobiography, Byrd explained that he was a KKK member becausehe "was sorely afflicted with tunnel vision —a jejune and immature outlook—seeing onlywhat I wanted to see because I thought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talentsand ambitions."[21] Byrd also said, in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had noplace in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I dont mind apologizing over andover again. I cant erase what happened."[9]Deceased U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd will be remembered by lots of things: His love for dogsand hyperbole, his ability to funnel federal dollars into make-work jobs in his native WestVirginia, his loathing of balanced budgets and the fact that he skillfully conned severalgenerations of Appalachian woodhicks into voting for him, over and over again, foralmost six decades.In passing, Sen. Byrd will also be remembered for having joined the Ku Klux Klan as a“young man.”A quick check of this morning’s obituaries reveal that in the eyes of the traditional media,Byrd the Progressive Porker is much more important than Bob the Exalted Cyclops.Byrd joined the Klan at the ripe young age of 24 — hardly a young’un by today’sstandards, much less those of 1944, when Byrd refused to join the military because hemight have to serve alongside “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen fromthe wilds,” according to a letter Byrd wrote to Sen. Theodore Bilbo at the height of WorldWar II.
  • 8. Today’s obituaries, however, made little mention of Byrd’s once-deeply held hatred forAfrican Americans.For your reading pleasure, a collection of obituary snow jobs:From the 11th paragraph of the LA Times’ Byrd obituary: “Byrd was not always achampion of liberal causes. He had come of age as a member of the Ku Klux Klan andcast a “no” vote on the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibited discriminationagainst African Americans and others. He later renounced his actions in both cases andcalled his membership in the KKK ‘the worst mistake of my life.’”ABC News noted that “despite his successful political track record, the Senate’s seniorDemocrat was no stranger to controversy and was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan,”as if calling for the extermination of dark-skinned peoples (as well as Jews, Catholics,and gays) was no more stirring a gaffe than Gary Hart’s monkey business.MSNBC.com reported that “Byrd’s success on the national stage came despite acomplicated history on racial matters. As a young man, we was a member of the Ku KluxKlan for a brief period, and he joined Southern Democrats in an unsuccessful filibusteragainst the landmark 1964 Civil Rights.” (The Ku Klux Klan no doubt objects to beingcalled complicated, and has held since Day 1 one that there is nothing wishy-washy aboutcastrations, lynchings or burning folks alive.)CNN also gave Byrd a pass on his association with the early 20th-century homegrownterrorist movement, writing in the 20th paragraph of Byrd’s obituary that “He blamed‘that Southern atmosphere in which I grew up, with all of its prejudices and its feelings,’for his opposition to equal rights, which included joining the [domestic terrorist outfit]Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s.”Of all the outlets that eulogized Byrd, only the Hill bothered to mention that a “young”Byrd not only joined the KKK, but also led his local chapter.No single obituary of Byrd mentioned his 2001 use of the term “white nigger,” an early20th-century anachronism that Byrd employed not once, but twice during an interviewwith Tony Snow.Yesterday, the media was pushing hagiographic narratives about the redemptive story ofRobert Byrd’s past on race relations. The moral of the story is that you can always makeup for being a racist son-of-a-bitch. But the real subtext of the story is: being a Democratmeans that you can promote segregation, join the KKK, vote against both black SupremeCourt nominees, and use the word “nigger” on national television — and still beremembered as a promoter of black interests.Robert Byrd’s KKK membership is dismissed by his worshipers as youthful indiscretion.It wasn’t. It was the beginning of a long and sordid history filled with hatred and bias.
  • 9. Highlights of Robert Byrd’s history of race relations include:– 1942: Joins the KKK; eventually rises to the rank of “Exalted Cyclops.”– 1945: Writes “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in thedirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by racemongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”– 1947: Says in a letter that the Klan is needed “like never before” and declares that he is“anxious to see its rebirth.”– 1964: Attempts to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It wasn’t out of principledlibertarian support for property rights. Cites a racist study claiming that black people’sbrains are statistically smaller than white people’s.– 1967: Votes against Thurgood Marshall’s Supreme Court nomination. Went to J. EdgarHoover to see if Marshall had any Communist ties that could ruin his nomination.– 1968: Tells the FBI that it’s time that Martin Luther King, Jr., “met his Waterloo.” FBIignores him.– 1991: Votes Against Clarence Thomas’ Supreme Court nomination. Becomes the onlysenator in the body to have voted against both black Supreme Court nominees.– 2001: Refers to what he called “white niggers” on national television. Try to imagine,say, Haley Barbour being given a pass after calling someone a “white nigger.”We’re told that he recanted his views. Great. So did Strom Thurmond. But those words— just words — rightly got him nowhere. If Robert Byrd’s grandson runs for Congressand is defeated by a black candidate — as happened to Thurmond’s grandon in SouthCarolina last week in a Republican primary — will the media breathlessly report it as theend of a racist era in the Democratic Party’s sordid history, as they did of Tim Scott’soverwhelming victory?Do I need to draw you a picture? The metanarrative must be preserved at all costs:Republicans, racist; Democrats, good. That’s all you need to know about the media’sthoughts on race relations in America. The final relic of federally-approved segregationleft us. That’s the real story: it’s the end of an era. What brave news outlet will reportthat?David Frazier, from Princeton, WV, sent me the following story about heroin addictionand Nick Larkin from Princeton, WV who can be contacted at nick_larkin@hotmail.com,(304) 888-7276 for anyone who would like to talk about coping with their addiction toheroin.
  • 10. Nick’s older brother Vincent Larkin of Princeton, WV also tells of how his brother Nickfucked Trishe Gross who had the nickname Fish after Kurt Rice fucked her and toldeveryone her pussy smelled like fish. Vincent jokes with his brother Nick that he waslucky he did not sleep with Amy Clark who was Fish’s roommate at WVU since she hadChlamydia and was sleeping with David Frazier who as also sleeping with StephanieGoodwin at the same time. Nick Larkin learned later that David Frazier had troublegetting Stephanie Goodwin pregnant regarding the aforementioned Chlamydia as helearned at Princeton Fitness Center one day from Rusty Cole. Nick Larkin thenoverdosed on heroin at David Frazier’s apartment in Mount Holly, NC and after 911came to the apartment Stephanie Goodwin let Nick borrow money to drive back home toPrinceton, WV which Nick never paid back. David told Vincent about Nick and hisheroin overdose and Vincent smashed his brother Nick’s head through the window ofNick’s apartment. Nick is so strung out that he actually rents out the room in hisapartment with a broken window. Paul Millsaps told Vincent Larkin that Scott Mullensgot a second DUI in Florida and was sodomized while in jail for 30 days before Scottmoved to Kannapolis, NC to be closer to his parents and Scott started doing heroin fromthe pain of being sodomized.Eric Demesa told Phil Parsons of how he, Eric Demesa, and Vincent Rago used to makeMira Rago give Arnel Rago blow jobs growing up in Quail Valley Estates in Princeton,WV. Moving along to West Virginia University it still makes me laugh to this day ofhow David Frazier used to fuck his cousin Laura which his cousin Joe Shannon informedNick Larkin and he told his brother Vincent Larkin who told everyone. Marshall Lively,who grew up with David Frazier in Quail Valley Estates in Princeton, WV, used to callDavid Frazier, Pumpkin regarding the aforementioned that the joke of how peoplecelebrate Halloween in WV with the answer being pumpkin.Perhaps the great town of Princeton, WV with a population of 6,800 does not affordmuch selection of mates therefore inbreeding is rampant and it is true that incest is best inWV.Hope you enjoyed the former and now a little about me, Dr. Naveen Venkat Reddy, D.C.,aka Raj Jackson, Golf Entertainer:I grew up in the small town of Man, West Virginia with my best friend Jay McClanahanfrom Poca, West Virginia. My mother Usha Reddy was a medical doctor who taught mehow to scam the healthcare system and she made a million dollars a year scamminghillbillies as a medical doctor in West Virginia during the 1970’s, being a MiddleEasterner, I guess it was in our blood, kind of like Osama Bin Laden.As a kid she taught me every scam in the book from when a patient has a diamond ring toorder a strep test, to when you do any kind of examination to mark comprehensive inorder to bill the insurance companies to the max before Blue Cross and Blue Shield wentbankrupt in West Virginia. Naturally I decided to sell my soul to the devil and go tochiropractic school since all I had to do was pretend to be a doctor like my mom and I
  • 11. always fantasized about being an actor, so as a chiropractor I could kill two birds withone stone.After finishing college at West Virginia University, I decided to move to Myrtle Beachwith two colleagues from Princeton, West Virginia named Kamlesh Pardasani, andLarnel Sultan. Being the subject of racism growing up in West Virginia I felt likeChristopher Columbus discovering a new world just by crossing the WV state line. Thefirst thing I noticed was the women were beautiful and nice unlike in West Virginiawomen who looked as if they were the product of inbreeding with deformed bonestructures and since Huntington, West Virginia leads the nation in obesity producing thefattest ugliest women in the nation.We met two nineteen year old twins named Carla and Denise Holt who were 5’10”, 128,long natural blond hair with green eyes and 5’11”, 125, long natural blond hair with blueeyes. They were strippers from Columbia, SC and one was a pageant winner also.Growing up in West Virginia I have never seen beautiful girls other than in magazinesand television. Kamlesh Pardasani, my Middle Eastern roommate at the time caught thecrabs after calling the escort service and after having dated white women his whole lifehis parents made him move to Charlotte, NC and forced him to marry a Middle Easterngirl.After the beach I moved to Chicago, and went to Optometry School for a while, until Iwas caught cheating and was kicked out so I moved to Atlanta, GA where I started schoolat Life University where I met up with Larnel Sultan who was doing rotations forosteopathic school and saw my old roommate Kamlesh Pardasani, who would comedown from Charlotte to party with Larnel and I as we use to roll on ecstasy whileKamlesh would hire escorts since he had a taste for the beauty of white women growingup as a child and was having trouble settling for a plain Jane Middle Eastern girl.Larnel fell in love with a stripper from the Cheetah and failed his osteopathic boards ashe partied with Kamlesh on ecstasy with escorts hired by Kamlesh who told his wife hewas on business trips in Atlanta. Meanwhile, my best friend Jay McClanahan, from WestVirginia was also going to school with me at Life University and did so much ecstasywhile spending $10,000 of student loan money one quarter on drugs, strip clubs andescorts that his parents made him move back to West Virginia for the summer.When Jay came back he did GHB and steroids for 8 weeks and became a stripper atSwinging Richards, which is a gay strip club in Atlanta where he performed sexual favorsin the VIP room to hustle patients so he could make quota for outpatient clinic at LifeUniversity and graduate. It still makes me laugh to this day when I think if his patientsonly knew what their doctor, Dr. Jay McClanahan, D.C. did in school as he practices inNitro, West Virginia.Living in Atlanta and going to chiropractic school was definitely wild compared togrowing up in West Virginia in the neck of the woods sheltered from the world whereinbreeding runs rampant. The first thing I noticed at school was the girls at chiropractic
  • 12. school used their student loan money to fund their breast implants and many werestrippers working to pay their tuition. As a short Middle Eastern guy being 5’6” tall Istarted dating a 5’11”, 150lb., long brown haired girl named Jackie who was anelementary teacher that has ruined me for other women in that I learned that tall whitesouthern women aren’t racist like the women in West Virginia and nothing compares tothe increased surface area of skin covering their legs coupled with not harboringinsecurities of short women making them the easier to get along with and humorous.Unfortunately, Jackie caught me cheating on her and beat me up to where I called thepolice because I was scared but I deserved it. I smoked so much weed and discovered somany other drugs in Atlanta that I have more stories than I can remember. I would haveto say the hands down wildest one that Jay kids me about to this day has to do with a 15year old girl who was the younger sister of a girl I dated. While I was in chiropracticschool and about 25 years old at the time, I drove back home to West Virginia andchaperoned a 15 year old girl to the prom who I got drunk with and had sex with at herprom in West Virginia. Jay, still kids me that her parents trusted me because my mom isa doctor and I was going to be a doctor and I got her drunk and engaged in statutory rape,but being a chiropractor is no different in that you are like a silent killer pretending to bea real doctor.I have decided to leave the profession of chiropractic in that chiropractors sell their soulto the devil just to make a dollar conning innocent sick people with a fake treatment andpreventing them from seeking medical care which may save their life like early treatmentof cancer causing the pain in their back. Although I have a chiropractic degree from LifeUniversity in Marietta, Georgia, I do not encourage anyone to sell their soul to the devil.My instructors taught us that all the chiropractic techniques aka treatments were effectiveand joked around while laughing and saying thank god the body heals itself since 60 to80 percent of the population will experience back pain and it will go away without anytreatment after about six to eight weeks.Before matriculating at Life we were treated to free lunches, guided tours of the campusby friendly enthusiastic students, and free lodging when touring the campus. The clinicatmosphere was different and students who were not recruiting enough patients to passthe course became desperate. A large wooden sign hung in the hallway with carvedletters that read "Whatever It Takes." Instructors advised us to use direct solicitation.They encouraged us to visit drugstores and to target people in pain. Many students paidtheir patients clinic fees out of desperation. Most of the students failed this class and hadto pay to retake it. My colleague Dr. Jay McClanahan, D.C. resorted to stripping at a gaystrip club in Atlanta named Swinging Richards a promising sexual favors in the VIProom in return for clients coming into student outpatient clinic for him at Life Universityjust so he could make quota to pass student outpatient clinic and graduate. I myself paidhealthy people to be my patients and if my mother hadn’t scammed patients in WestVirginia and scammed the insurance companies I never would be able to afford to dosuch a thing and probably would have never made it through outpatient clinic at LifeUniversity. Luckily after changing my name from Naveen Reddy, due to the allegationsof child molestation and statutory rape, to becoming a golf entertainer under the new
  • 13. name of Raj Jackson in Las Vegas, I am still able to survive since my mom still supportsme from the millions she made scamming people in West Virginia. If you would like toimprove your golf game you can contact me about my golf videos atupscalegolftv@gmail.com.After school I moved to Ashland, Kentucky where I started ASAP Chiropractic. LuckilyDr. Jay McClanahan, D.C. had a cousin, Dr. Matthew Lee, M.D. who graduated frommedical school at West Virginia University who was also my old roommate at WVUwhile in undergrad who referred me patients while in Ashland, Kentucky. After a while Istarted to feel guilty knowing that chiropractic has nothing to do with health and that I amproviding a spurious treatment to sick people just so I can be rich and will burn in hell forselling my soul to the devil to be a chiropractor if I continue down this path. One dayone of my patients, who is the mother of my receptionist, died from cancer, who I did notrefer out to an oncologist as the cause of her back pain, preventing any chance of beatingthe cancer that eventually killed her. Being Middle Eastern, symbolically, that was thestraw that broke the camels back and I decided to quit chiropractic if I were to have anychance at going to heaven.I will leave you with one final true story, albeit hard to fathom, hopefully will put the nailin the coffin and drive the point home as I will be working on my new book, CASKET,Chiropractic, America’s Silent Killer Exposed Truthfully by Dr. Raj Jackson, D.C.On July 19, 2001, Canadian stock car racer Alan Turner and his wife Jill filed a lawsuitcharging that V. Gary Dyck, D.C., paralyzed their 11-year-old son James bymanipulating his neck and back. The suit asks for a total of $2.75 million Canadiandollars: $500,000 for general damages, $1,000,000 for special damages; $1,000,000 forlost earning capacity, and $250,000 to compensate the boys family. The suit papers state:On July 24, 2000, James developed chest pains while swimming and was taken to theDycks office, where his neck and back were manipulated.On the following day, although James was worse, Dyck manipulated him again.As a result of the treatment by the Defendant, Jamess condition deteriorated rapidly andhe was rushed to The Royal Victoria Hospital of Barrie where he was in great distress,having lost the use of his legs and bladder function. The pediatrician in charge arrangedfor an ambulance on an emergency basis to transfer James to The Hospital for SickChildren in Toronto for an MRI and neurosurgical intervention.When James arrived at the Hospital for Sick Children, a thorough examination andassessment revealed that he had a benign spinal cord tumor called a ganglioglioma. Therewas swelling in both the tumor and cord, which caused James to become permanentlyparalyzed. Emergency neurosurgery confirmed the presence of the tumor, and subsequentpathology examination confirmed that there had been an acute infarct of the tumor. (Aninfarct is a condition in which tissue dies as a result of loss of blood supply.)
  • 14. The treatment has resulted in permanent paralysis of the legs, weakness of one hand, andpoor bowel and bladder control.The suit papers further charge that Dyck was negligent in that:He should not have manipulated James in the manner he did, or at all, without firstdetermining the cause of the complaint and diagnosing the problem.He failed to obtain x-rays or perform tests to determine the cause of the problem andwhether manipulation was contraindicated.Having treated the Plaintiff on his return the following day, failed to heed the fact that hiscondition had deteriorated since the prior day and further investigation should have beenconducted and emergency treatment sought.He failed to properly examine and diagnose the boys condition.He failed to explain treatment procedures.He failed to properly warn about the dangers and consequences of the treatment beingadministeredHe applied the wrong treatment and/or treatment was applied improperly.The treatment used was improper and an abusive procedure, which caused the injuries tothe boy.Dyck, a prominent chiropractor who practices chiropractic in Barrie, Ontario, was amember of the 35-member consensus group that helped draft the Clinical Guidelines forChiropractic Practice in Canada, published in 1994 by the Canadian ChiropracticAssociation. He has also been a licensing examiner for the College of Chiropractors ofOntario, the agency that regulates the practice of chiropractic in Ontario.The suit was filed by attorney Stanley M. Tick & Associates of Hamilton Ontario.Lastly, the following story describes the picture of me with Kamlesh Pardasani, LarnelSultan and Carla Holt: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America justlike in school and that Indians or Middle Easterners as an all encompassing term are thecockroaches of America with respect to the September, 11th bombing of the World TradeCenter and The Pentagon. If we as Americans are to turn disaster into opportunity, thenit would be wise not to feed the Indian or Middle East cockroaches that led to ourRecession which I thought of while visiting Kamlesh Pardasani at the UPS store in FortMill, SC as he was holding a box cutter and speaking Arabic on the phone.Upon graduating college at WVU, Larnel Sultan and Kamlesh Pardasani of Princeton,WV moved to Quail Marsh in Myrtle Beach with Naveen Reddy, from Man, WV who
  • 15. changed his name to Raj Jackson after molesting a 15 year old girl in Man, WV at herprom and is now working as a fugitive in Las Vegas, as a Golf Entertainer.Lime, Kam, and Wood were the aliases they used in Myrtle Beach with their real namesbeing Larnel, Kamlesh, and Naveen in which Carla Holt from Columbia, SC said “Nowonder they have nicknames”.Carla Holt is the 5’10” green eyed blond in Naveen Reddy’s picture of Sin City who wasa stripper at Alley Cats in Columbia with a perfect 10 body even by California standards.Living with Carla at Quail Marsh in Myrtle Beach, SC was her twin sister Denise HoltFairey the 5’11” blue eyed blond who as also a former stripper from Alley Cats and apageant winner in Columbia, SC. Also living with Carla and Denise were AmandaHearse and Keri Gardner who was in one room with their pimp Jojo from Princeton, WV.The other Ho’s Carla and Denise were in the other room in their 2 bedroom 2 bathapartment at Quail Marsh in Myrtle Beach.The WVU alumnus met the Southern Belles of SC and discovered Southern Hospitalityat Quail Marsh on 21st Ave. in Myrtle Beach, SC. While Naveen worked at Subway andslept most of the time Larnel dreamt of Keri Gardner’s hooters, a girl from Columbia,SC. Naveen played Nintendo and smoked a lot of weed in his free time when he wasn’tspanking his monkey. Larnel’s job was to work the fryer at Hooters. Larnel thoughtmaybe he’d get lucky one day working at Hooter’s but instead came home drenched insweat. When Larnel arrived back at the apartment he would profess his infatuation withKerri Gardner’s perfect C cups and cook everyone a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.Kamlesh worked at Studebaker’s until he was fired. In contrast, Kamlesh got so workedup thinking about Carla after taking her to dinner and being dumped that he called theescort service and ended up with the crabs. Kamlesh whined to Carla about losing his jobunleashing his uncircumcised penis and she slapped him so hard that he retreated back toLarnel and Naveen. The WVU alumnus had never seen beautiful girls in real life beingaccustomed to WV having the fattest city in the nation being Huntington, WV andrampant inbreeding producing the fattest ugliest girls in the nation.Running the gamut, on the other hand, Hermosa Beach has the highest density ofswimsuit models in the United States as Naveen learned after moving to ManhattanBeach, CA from Atlanta and wish they were all California Girls after growing up in WVwith the fattest ugliest women in the nation. Naveen reminisces Sangrias at the HermosaBeach Pier after it turns from restaurant to bar licking his lips like a dog drooling overpeople food on the table never to be fed to the dog.Naveen says “Deep down inside everyone is a little demon named greed. Learn how totap that demon and you will have become game master”. For example, Naveen told the15 year old girl he chaperoned to the prom in his hometown of Man, WV that he was richand going to be a doctor so she let him engage in statutory rape after a few drinks.
  • 16. Naveen says Larnel throws money at girls while they were in Atlanta to make them likehim inasmuch as Kamlesh spends $20 for a bare back blow job to cum in mouth on ablack street walker in Atlanta for maximum economic exploitation. After KamleshPardasani caught the crabs at Myrtle Beach from a prostitute his parents forced him tomarry a Middle Eastern girl and move to Charlotte. Upon settling down Kamlesh keptstruggling to rid himself of having bareback anal sex with white girls his whole life byhiring escorts in Atlanta while telling his wife he was on business trips. Kamlesh alsohired girls at the infamous Gold Club in Atlanta, for anal threesomes.Larnel at this time was doing an osteopathic rotation in Atlanta. Larnel fell in love with astripper from the Cheetah, causing him to fail his osteopathic boards, while he andKamlesh used to roll on ecstasy with escorts to satisfy Kamlesh Pardasani’s insatiablebare back anal sex drive with young white women after marriage to a Middle Eastern girl.Kamlesh said most of the prostitutes he hired for him and Larnel reported that marriedmen visit prostitutes for oral sex.During this time Naveen was in Chiropractic school in Atlanta after getting kicked out ofOptometry school in Chicago for cheating. While still in school in Atlanta he visited hishometown of Man, WV in which he chaperoned a 15 year old girl to the prom andengaged in statutory rape.Naveen always said you can’t catch a snake with a rope so I always associate Sin City orLas Vegas with Naveen or Raj, the Middle Eastern snake, waiting for his next prey likethe Devil stealing the soul of an underage girl.When I drive by Joe’s Crab Shack or see a UPS truck I think of Kamlesh the terrorist asthe Osama Bin Laden working for UPS in Fort Mill, SC and is a box cutter knifespecialist.In the Sin City picture under the Triple Double 777 machine is Naveen Reddy aka RajJackson with his arm hanging around the big guy like a monkey. The Blond besideNaveen is Carla Holt and above her is Larnel Sultan, the Filipino guy, and the MiddleEastern guy above him is Kamlesh Pardasani.
