Say, Which Party Actually Features KKK Members?

I suppose it’s incumbent to post on this story, since it is my home state

(Charlotte Observer) Bivins Hollar likes to post videos from his bedroom. About weight loss. About Pokemon cards. About selling chewing gum at a flea market.

But it’s the video where he casually talks about “shooting” and starving black South Africans – and kidnapping the country’s president – that caught the attention of people who track white supremacists.

Hollar, who is running for the N.C. Senate from Catawba County, is one of two Democratic candidates whom state party officials have taken the unusual step of denouncing.

The other is Carrol Crawford, a former Ku Klux Klan leader once convicted of burning a cross in Charlotte. He’s running for Rowan County commissioner.

The NC Democrat Party is “disowning them”, as it should. They can’t stop the two for running as Democrats. Of course, Democrats still bring up David Duke as “proof” that the GOP is raaaaacist, despite the GOP disowning him from the get go. Oh, and the GOP never had a former KKK big wig serving in the US Senate, and certainly wouldn’t have made him Majority Leader.

    I could have sworn teh duke ran as an independent or something.. and not as GOP.

    But then, I didn’t really pay him much mind.

    “When we get enough (white) people moved to the west, just kidnap (South African President Jacob) Zuma and say ‘You know, you have to give a press conference saying we’re splitting the country.’ And we’ll have to take the rest of it later, 40, 50 years down the road.”

    When a reporter called him back, Hollar said, “I believe in (Republican presidential candidate) Ron Paul. … OK, you just need to stop calling me.” Later, Hollar posted another video criticizing the media, especially the Observer.

    now there’s an endorsement

    Crawford, 77, lives in rural Rowan County. He’s a former grand dragon of the Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

    In 1987 a Mecklenburg County judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail and fined him $500 for burning a cross at a Charlotte Klan rally. That year, he resigned as grand dragon.

    soooo… a long time ago, eh? (snicker)
    as the former KKK senator Byrd used to say, “It was in my youth”

  3. Yeah, but you know that Dems can’t be racists. Even though they started the KKK.
