The Democratic Party is facing an awkward problem Thursday because white supremacist David Duke has endorsed a leading candidate in the Democratic Partys primary race for a New York House seat.
Duke says hes endorsing Charles Barron, the leading candidate for the 10th district primary on June 26, because of their shared emnity toward zionists.
Barron is an African-American city politician who has been slammed as an anti-white racist and as a Jew-hater. However, hes already got the endorsement of the retiring Democratic congressman, Rep. Edolphus Towns.
If Barron wins the June 26 primary, hes a shoo-in for election in November because the district is overwhelmingly Democratic.
His election would be unnerving for many Democrats, including Jewish Democrats. Recent polls say that traditionally high support among orthodox Jews for the Democratic Party is declining toward 50 percent.
Dukes endorsement of a Democrat also muddies routine claims by progressives that many conservatives and libertarians are motivated by racism. GOP supporters say their beliefs are motivated by American idealism and old-style liberal ideas of tolerance and freedom.
In recent days the Democratic establishment, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, has reacted to Barrons advance by supporting his rival, Hakeem Jeffries, a state assemblyman. Duke is a famous racist who ran as a Democrat and as a Republican in multiple Louisiana races during the late 1980s and early 1990s.
He now portrays himself as a supporter of diversity, and as a non-violent proponent of laws that encourage whites and African-Americans to live separately.
In an election of limited choices, I think Charles Barron is the better choice [because] there is no greater danger facing the United States of America and facing the world than the unbridled power of zionist globalism, Duke declared in a June 21 video.
The video appears on his website, whose banner declares, For Human Freedom and Diversity.
Duke, who was once a leader of the Ku Klux Klan, and who established the National Association for the Advancement of White People, decried Barrons support for affirmative action, and his controversial statements that endorse violence against whites.
I certainly disagree with Barrons extreme racist, even violently, anti-white rhetoric, he said, while blaming Jewish extremists for racial divisions.
African-Americans and whites want the same thing they want the right to associate together in their schools and communities, he said.
Duke did not explain how the law should treat blacks and whites who wish to live in an area dominated by the other group, or how the segregationist policies would be enforced.
But the real enemies, he said, are zionists, meaning Jews.
They want constant conflict between the two groups so they can use a divide and conquer strategy to rule over us all.
Jews, and the international robber-zio-banks [and] the zionist clubfed, he said, are the ultimate real enemies of both our peoples.
This article has been updated to reflect that Hakeem Jeffries is a state assemblyman, not a New York City councilman.
You’re thinking of a different kind of Byrd.
For years Duke has been saying that he’s not a racist.
By endorsing a black man he demonstrates that this is true.
And not only that, but there really is no better way to keep black Americans from achieving real economic freedom than to support a liberal Democrat.
Why don’t these Jews of NY just vote for the Nazi party, same thing.
My first impression is that they desreve each other.
The KKK has always been a mainstay of the Democratic party.
Anytime I hear someone go off on “Zionism” or “(~evil~) Jews rules the world”; I immediately think of them as having fallen off the “Koo Koo” tree.
Duke—endorsing a Black Man! What a world we live in! I guess he hates them Jooos more than the Blacks. I think he will fit right in to the Democrat Party.
I’m just delighted for this wonderful moment when David Duke is the ‘Rats’ problem and not ours.
Thank You Jesus!
.. thus the states "news"papers and TV stations could have "credence" as they attacked supporters of Prop 209 for being racists.
DAMMMIT! Why couldn’t he do this after Barron won? We WANT him to win, so it will drive Jewish donors and voters away from Democrats, and crush Debbie Downer, who is in charge of all these races. GO BARRON!
Of course if Barron now wins anyway it makes our use of the Duke endorsement as a club with which to beat the ‘Rats all the more effective!
Dare to dream, my FRiend, dare to dream!
Since the Dems already have Al Sharpton, New Black Panthers, LA RAZA (The Race), MEChA, and Southern Poverty Law Center in their racists cabal....David Duke should fit right in
