The morning I watched in amazement as the Morning Joe crew ruminated for well over 30 minutes over David Dukes. What a “blast from the past”, who the heck cares about David Duke? And this ruminations says more about the real source of “white supremacy” than anything else. But first, let me tell you who David Duke is:
David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, far-right politician, and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. A former one-term Republican Louisiana State Representative, he was a candidate in the Democratic presidential primaries in 1988 and the Republican presidential primaries in 1992. Duke unsuccessfully ran for the Louisiana State Senate, United States Senate, United States House of Representatives, and Governor of Louisiana. Duke is a felon, having pleaded guilty to defrauding supporters by falsely claiming to have no money and being in danger of losing his home in order to solicit emergency donations; at the time, Duke was financially secure, and used the donations for recreational gambling. Wikipedia
Duke describes himself as a “racial realist,” asserting that “all people have a basic human right to preserve their own heritage.” Duke also speaks against what he describes as Jewish control of the Federal Reserve Bank, the U.S. federal government and the media. Duke supports the preservation of what he considers to be Western culture and traditionalist Christian family values, Constitutionalism, abolition of the Internal Revenue Service, voluntary racial segregation, anti-Communism and white separatism. He has been accused of supporting Holocaust denial.
Quite frankly, beyond being a racist, he is a generally reprehensible human being. He actually left the KKK in 1980, of which he said: “I had joined the Klan because of those robes. They made good copy, you know. Good pictures. But, after a while, all those guys with the green teeth got to me. So I started my own organization. We don`t have any record of violence. The NAAWP is a perfect foil for me.“ What was the NAAWP? It stands for the National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP).
One statement that he made during an interview is something that I will visit again before I finish this article. Duke said of Black people: “I don`t hate blacks,“ Duke says. “They`ve got their good points. They`re like children. They`re innocent and they`re cruel. They`re instinctive. That`s why they`re good in sports and music. They`ve got great rhythm.“ AND finally: “I don’t call myself a white supremacist,” said Duke. “I’m a civil rights activist concerned about European-American rights.”
While most sane people would say that this man is not only a “racist” but also a person who suffers from a great deal of personality and psychological disorders, it is not an odd malady. The difference is that he expresses it. On the other side of the coin, suppressed are the images that fall outside of the “racist” meme such as the “knock out ” “game” where Black teenagers would punch the lights out of elderly or young white people. Black nationalist preachers who say things such as “Not God Bless America, but God Damn America”. The fact that the biggest racist ever spawned in modern America, gets a national news show. That man is Al Sharpton. This man caused riots, deaths, played “fast and loose” with the money and still owes a few million in back taxes. He refers to himself as “Reverend” , but as long as I have been following this character, he has never had a church and quite frankly he has said and done some very “un-reverend-like” things.
At the crux of this matter is a point. MSNBC is a liberal channel and while they might have tolerated and even praised Donald Trump in the beginning, they owe their audience the ‘red meat’ of liberalism. And never will you ever hear them ask Hilliary Clinton about her deep abiding regard for the former grand “poop poop ee dooo” of the KKK and long time Senator – Robert Byrd. Clinton had become friends with Byrd during her time in the Senate, and had even lunched with Byrd and Clinton’s mother, who came to admire him while monitoring C-SPAN for her daughter’s floor appearances. This morning, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton put out her own statement eulogizing Byrd as a “friend and mentor” as “a man of unsurpassing eloquence and nobility.”
SHE SAID THIS IN 2010. SOOOOOO it was not THAT long ago in history. Read more at: http://observer.com/2010/06/hillary-clinton-remembers-friend-and-mentor-robert-byrd/
So, the fake looks of disapproval and the hours long stupidity and moralizing on MSNBC is really just that …… fake. And finally, it is offensive. Because their moralization is not moral but demeaning. It shows that they have no more regard for Black people than David Duke’s feeling that they are “like children” — in other words, they play to the idea that not only do Black people have memories, we are quite adept at recognizing condescension and patronizing. It all rests in the “soft bigotry of low expectations”…… they feel that it is “mighty white” of them to protect the poe, poe black chilluns from da KKK,
Finally, about Marco. at this point you have to realize that a 3-5-3-2 with no states in the winner’s circle, including the home state of Florida, is not the recipe of a winner. In addition, he has changed his personality in the most drastic manner. His voice is now high pitched, his demeanor feverish, eyes wild and excited and instead of speaking about ideas and policy ……. he is making innuendos about urinating in one’s pants, whether another man has a good looking tanned face and estimating the size of a man’s penis by the size of his hands……. AND more importantly…… why would this matter to Senator Rubio? I am certain that many leaders who did no have to “fold and tuck” before buttoning their trousers have done quite well in political office.
Rubio is being used as the bomb, to blow up this election….. make no mistake.
In the end, one will realize that this is just “dirty politics”, and if you look back in history, it is not the “dirtiest”. Just business as usual. The difference now is in the intent. It is the intention to usurp the will of the people, blow up the election and either send it to a brokered convention or give it to Hillary. It has little to do with Rubio getting the election or becoming the President. It appears that if the powers that be can not “select” who THEY want they will make darned sure that the people will NOT elect who they want. They are willing to let the Democrat – Hillary Clinton win in order to “regain” their power. Don’t you understand that since Donald Trump is not running this on his own, PEOPLE are voting for him, so it is incumbent upon the electorate to understand that another word for “stopping Donald Trump”, is usurping the right of the people to vote their choice into office. The DNC stacked “cheater” delegates to make sure that they elect only the person that the party boss “selects”.
People, this election has very little to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with the whittling away of your right to a vote, your right to choose, your right to exercise your God Given discernment. “We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.” Nikita Khrushchev
Sounds like a wise man, a modern day Nostradamus — and also a man who helped Stalin murder hundreds of thousands of political opponents in Russia. I know at this late hour everyone who intends to vote already has chosen their candidate. I beg you to keep in mind that freedoms we have enjoyed in the past are being taken from us a little at a time, just as Khrushchev predicted.
I think its time to turn this ship around.
