Wikipedia, Mar. 11, 2014 (Theodore Gilmore Bilbo (October 13, 1877-August 21, 1947) was an American politician. Bilbo, a Democrat, twice served as governor of Mississippi (1916-20, 1928-32) and later was elected a U.S. Senator (1935-47). A master of filibuster and scathing rhetoric, a rough-and-tumble fighter in debate, he made his name a synonym for white supremacy. Proud of being a racist, Bilbo believed that black people and Jews were inferior, defended segregation, and was a member of the Ku Klux Klan)
