Well, this is interesting
(Buzzfeed) David Duke, a white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, is urging the listeners of his radio program to volunteer and vote for Donald Trump.
“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage,” Duke said on the David Duke Radio Program Wednesday, referring to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. “I’m not saying I endorse everything about Trump, in fact I haven’t formally endorsed him. But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do.”
Technically, Duke is a White Supremacist, as he really does despise Black people and other races/creeds/nationalities/religions, and wants to rule over them. White Nationalists may or may not hate, but they generally want to live separately. Think of someone like the guy who runs Stuff Black People Don’t Like. Regardless, this has caused a bit of a tizzy among those on the left and right, and, it’s strange that people on the left have a problem with this, considering they fully embraced Robert “KKK/Sheets” Byrd, even naming him the Conscious of the Senate.
The ever crazy Washington Monthly calls this the ugliest campaign ever. AmericaBlog goes with the headline The word “Trump” is now synonymous with “white power”. At least Talking Points Memo gets it right in calling Duke a white supremacist. Strangely, none have called for removing all references to Robert Byrd from public buildings and roads and stuff.
I do have to wonder something, though: why is it OK for racist/bigoted groups like La Raza, NAACP, New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, etc. to endorse people (meaning Democrats), but it’s not OK for any group that stands for white people to endorse? Not that I approve of the KKK, Duke, or any of those groups that go for Dems (I don’t), but, it seems a double standard, does it not?
Anyhow, Caleb Howe at Red State discusses Trump’s biggest endorsement to date.
