CHRISTIAN WHITE SUPREMACY: “Former KKK Leader David Duke Running for Louisiana Republican Senate Seat” / The Young Turks / Mark Thompson, and Elliot Hill ☮

Former KKK leader David Duke thinks the time is right for another senate run. Is Louisiana racist enough to elect an open white supremacist to its senate? Time will tell. Mark Thompson (The Edge Podcast) and Elliot Hill (The Lip TV), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klan leader, is running for U.S. Senate in Louisiana.

Duke is a well-established white supremacist, Holocaust denier and anti-Semite. He has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

In his announcement video, posted Friday morning to Twitter, Duke says he’ll fight for the rights of “European Americans” and that “The New York Times admitted that my platform became the GOP mainstream.” He touts his opposition to affirmative action and immigration, and cites his joy at Trump’s rise to power.

“A revolution is coming in the United States of America,” he says.

Trump disavowed Duke’s support in March, but his campaign has echoed many of the themes Duke’s announcement touched on, such as a distrust of immigrants and anger towards the media.

Trump and Duke also share common ground in their love of conspiracy theories. Trump has repeatedly suggested that the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R), his former presidential rival, was involved in President John F. Kennedy’s death. Duke, meanwhile, believes that “Jewish Supremacists” who secretly control the U.S. are attempting to commit some sort of “white genocide.”
