White Supremacist David Duke Endorses Donald Trump

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.

  • Trump Picks Up The Support Of David Duke | The Lonely Conservative (February 25, 2016)
    […] Well, if any Republican can get away with this it’s Teflon Don, at least until after the primary. But if Trump wins the primary, with this sort of support behind him the Republican Party and conservatives will be painted as KKK supporting white supremacists for the next few decades. Never mind that the Democrats got away with having Senator Robert “KKK” Byrd among their ranks. […]

Of course it isn’t “wrong” for Duke or any KKK or American Nazi or any other hate group yo endorse whenever they wish
In fact I would encourage them to do so, and for politicians to respond
Right wing groups that call for the death of doctors who perform abortions or demand gays be killed also should doeak up for those politicians they support

from the NYT (and previously as well):

Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach describes itself as “one of the most highly regarded private clubs in the world,” and it is not just the very-well-to-do who want to get in.

Since 2010, nearly 300 United States residents have applied or been referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there. But according to federal records, only 17 have been hired.

In all but a handful of cases, Mar-a-Lago sought to fill the jobs with hundreds of foreign guest workers from Romania and other countries.

See, Donald is NOT anti-immigrant! He just wants to use them in his businesses. I hope Secretary Clinton doesn’t hear about this, she might try to use it in a TV ad.

The obvious difference between “Black Lives Matter” and white supremacists like Duke is that “Black Lives Matter”, NAACP, La Raza aren’t claiming that white, red, brown or yellow lives don’t matter, or that only THEIR lives matter. See the difference? Do you really view the recognition of race to be “racist”?

Anyway, the US Republican Party is well on their way to nominating Donald Trump as their Presidential candidate.

Take a deep breath and then say, this all means that the media is manipulating me and the way I think. No one takes David Duke serious except nut jobs in both parties. But, I can assure you that Trump does not think like David Duke or even some of the other people that comment here and constantly put down other ethnic groups by their condensation and “tolerance” (which is the worst means of discrimination).

I really don’t see much really wrong with Trump when you consider how bad Obama has been or even Bush or Clinton (both with the damage that Hillary has caused). What I like about Trump is the fact that the elites in both parties are scared to death of the guy (actually, we only have one political party). That one thing is making me think he would be good for the country. But consider the alternatives, Rubio will do 180 degrees different from what he is promising, that is his MO. Cruz does not have a chance and is really nuts. The other Republican candidate are not worth considering except Kasich who will be the chosen one in a brokered convention. Then there is Hillary, my God, she is mentally and physically ill. She is a horrible person and horrible politician. She should be in jail but has too much dirt on everyone. So, at the end of the day, Trump seems very good.

Oh, Jeff, if you refer to me as a supremacist or any other of your obnoxious references, then I will mail the letter I wrote to the FDA including your previous comments and your drug company (tracked it down).

J- “the obvious difference between BLM and white supremacists like Duke is that BLM aren’t claiming that white , brown yellow, ect lives don’t matter, but their lives matter. See the difference?” Really? Ever see the reaction when some white says “all lives matter”? Almost always a negative reaction form the BLM crowd. And if someone said “white lives matter”? They’d be labeled as racist. See the difference?

We’ll wait for the FDA to contact us before we take further action. Thanks for the heads up.
