Laura Ingrahams Anti-Immigrant Rant Was So Racist It Was …

Fox News anchor Laura Ingrahams Wednesday night monologue about immigrants destroying America was so racist it got the endorsement of David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan.

During the opening to her primetime show The Ingraham Angle, Ingraham complained that the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people, she said, in the form of documented and undocumented immigrants.

Minutes later, Duke tweeted praise for Ingraham.

One of the most important (truthful) monologues in the history of MSM, he wrote above a clip of Ingrahams rant. He later deleted the tweet.

It should be no surprise that Ingrahams rhetoric got the endorsement of an open white supremacist. Ingrahams fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson also echoed white nationalist rhetoric when he said immigrants were leading to the collapse of the American family in June.

Ingraham and Carlsons monologues borrowed the rhetoric of what white nationalists falsely call white genocide, an innuendo that refers to racist fears about people of color coming to outnumber white people in the United States. A large segment of white nationalists also hitch their fears to the claim that the left and/or Jewish people are encouraging immigration to dilute the white race.

White supremacists talk a lot about the inherent threat posed by immigrants and refugees, particularly those of color, she previously told The Daily Beast. This is obviously a shout-out to the sense that white supremacists have of being under siege. Its a shout-out to the concept of white genocide, which is a popular trope among white supremacists and its something they use as a recruiting tool: a sense of fear of the other.

Duke has accused Zionists of planning to ethnically cleanse Europeans and Americans and even said Anthony Bourdain wanted to exterminate the white race.

Ingraham blamed the left for pushing out whites.

From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed, Ingraham said. Now, much of this is related to both illegal and in some cases legal immigration that, of course, progressives love.

Ingrahams remarks came during a riff on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist who recently won a Democratic primary in New York for a seat in Congress. Ocasio-Cortez, a young Latina progressive, had appeared on a podcast where she discussed the collapse of Americas middle class. Ingraham claimed the nations real troubles came from the lefts effort to remake America by allowing more immigrants into the country.

Later in the program, Ingraham dismissed structural racism in the criminal justice system (an objective fact measurable in disproportionate policing and prosecution of black Americans) by asking about black-on-black crime (a conservative cliche used to demonize the black community).

But is black-on-black crime, for instance, right now, in Chicago a bigger problem for the community than just the racism that you claim is in the criminal justice system? she asked when a guest mentioned recognizing racial bias in the countrys courts.

In four days, white supremacists are scheduled to rally in Washington, D.C. to mark the one-year anniversary of Unite the Right, last years deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Permit applications show Duke is expected to be a featured speaker.

David Duke to speak at white nationalist conference in Tennessee

Less than two months after an annual white nationalist conference drew protesters to Montgomery Bell State Park, a similar scene is expected to unfold this weekend.

Headlining the list of speakers at the joint conference between the American Freedom Party and Council of Conservative Citizens is David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan who is among the most prominent white supremacist leaders in the United States.

He will be joined by Michael Hill, president of League of the South, which organized an October anti-immigration”White Lives Matter” rally in Shelbyville, estimated by the Anti-Defamation League to be the second largest white supremacist rally in a decade.

Virginia Abernethy, a Vanderbilt University professor emerita who previously described herself to The Tennessean as an “ethnic separatist,” and Kevin MacDonald, whom the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as “the neo-Nazi movement’s favorite academic,” are also set to speak.

Both the American Freedom Party, formerly known as American Third Position, and the Council of Conservative Citizens are designated white nationalist hate groupsby the SPLC.

The event taking place Friday through Sunday comes just after the annual American Renaissance conference in late April, which has been held for seven years at Montgomery Bell Inn and Convention Center and has regularly drawn anti-racist protesters.

American Renaissance, a magazine-turned-blog affiliated with the New Century Foundation, is also considered a white nationalist hate group by the SPLC.

Antifa to protest at, leading up to Montgomery Bell event

Though it’s unclear how many protesters are expected to show, a spokesman for the Nashville-based Jam City Antifasaid the group was mobilizing activists to protest the conference.

The anti-fascist collective has created Facebook events to “Unwelcome the AFP & CCC” when conference attendees arrive on Friday afternoon and for an “Oppose The Hate” rally and march from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday outside the state park inn.

Jam City Antifa is encouraging participants to “bring signs, banners flags and noise making equipment” in an effort to disrupt the conference.

Ahead of the weekend events, the group is also organizing a protest Tuesday afternoon at Vanderbilt University against Abernethy, who is speaking at the conference.

On Thursday, the group plans to hold a silent march and vigil at Public Square Park in Nashville “to honor those who have been affectedby the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist groups throughout history,” Jam City Antifa wrote on a Facebook event page.

It noted that Hill’s League of the South was among the groups that helped organize and participate in Unite the Right, the Charlottesville, Virginia rally in August that left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead after a car drove into a crowd of activists.

Both conference goersand protesters will be searched, according to Eric Ward, spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, which oversees stateparks.

Bags, masks and “anything that could be considered a weapon” are prohibited, he said.

Protesters will be assigned to a designated area that will keep them separated from conference attendees, as park officialshave required during recent American Renaissance conferences held at the park.

The state park’s hotel, restaurant and conference center will be open only to registered conference guests, and across Montgomery Bell State Park Saturday, visitors will likely notice increased security, Ward said.

The late-April American Renaissance conference brought roughly two dozen protesters and 100 state and local law enforcement officers, including those stationed on the roof of the hotel and circling overhead by helicopter.

TDEC declined to share specifics about how large a law enforcement presence would be on hand this weekend, though Tennessee Highway Patrol is “aware of the meeting” and has allocated resources for the event, said Lt. Bill Miller.

ActivitiesPromoting anti-Semitism abroad

Prior to founding the European Unity and Rights Organization (EURO), which he currently leads, as well as its predecessor, the National Organization for European American Rights (NOFEAR), Duke established in 1980 the National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP). He described the group as primarily a white rights lobby organization, a racialist movement, mainly middle class people and likened its message to that of the Ku Klux Klan. Indeed, NAAWP was housed in the former headquarters of the

Knights of the KKK, and Duke used the facilities to produce the NAAWP newsletter. From that office, he also produced the Louisiana edition of The White Patriot, a periodical of the Knights of the KKK.

NAAWP had such close ties to the KKK because, throughout the 1970s, Duke was a Klan leader. In 1974, he founded the Louisiana-based Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and became the groups Imperial Wizard. Dukes efforts to market himself as a new brand of Klansman well-groomed, engaged, professional were successful, and Duke boosted Klan membership. Duke urged an overhaul of the organization at the grass-roots level, encouraging his colleagues to get out of the cow pasture and into hotel meeting rooms. In media appearances and political venues, he skillfully exploited issues like illegal immigration, affirmative action and court-ordered busing, and sanitized Klan vocabulary, titling himself national director and referring to cross burnings as illuminations. In 1976, he organized the largest Klan rally the nation had witnessed since the 1960s in Walker, Louisiana, with an estimated attendance of 2,700. In addition, he built up local organizations in other states, including California, Florida and Texas. Although he publicly shunned violence, he was convicted in 1979 of inciting a riot in connection with a Klan rally in suburban New Orleans.

While a student at Louisiana State University, he founded the White Youth Alliance, a group affiliated with the neo-Nazi National Socialist White Peoples Party in Arlington, Virginia. To protest a speech by attorney William Kunstler at Tulane University, Duke picketed wearing a Nazi brown shirt and a swastika armband and carried a placard that said Kunstler is a Communist-Jew and Gas the Chicago 7 (referring to the well-known leftist activists). Duke now describes the event as a folly of youth.

In late 1998, Duke authored and self-published a 700-page autobiography, My Awakening. In this magnum opus, which he reprinted in 2000, Duke attempted to prove that blacks are genetically inferior to whites, while devoting almost 250 pages to anti-Jewish themes. Duke wrote that Jews thoroughly dominate the news and entertainment media in almost every civilized nation; they control the international markets and stock exchanges; and no government can resist doing their bidding on any issue of importance, and he noted that Jews and Gentiles are in a state of ethnic war, predicting that the ultimate clash between these two diametrically opposed genotypes and cultures fast approaches with the new millenium. In its unabashed racist animosity, the book seemed to represent a conscious decision by Duke to abandon his two-decade long attempts to obfuscate, repackage, intellectualize and dress up his opinions and ideas.

Duke also wrote two short pieces of very different sorts in the 1970s. In 1976, assuming the name Dorothy Vanderbilt, he authored Finders Keepers, a self-help sex manual for women. In 1973, as Mohammad X, Duke wrote African Atto, a street-fighting manual avowedly written to help the Klan identify “radical” African-Americans, who would buy the book.

In December 1998, Duke ran for a Congressional seat in Louisianas First Congressional District. He positioned himself as an anti-government conservative who stood up for the little man against programs such as affirmative action, minority set-asides and welfare. His message seemed to hit a nerve among some frustrated and alienated white voters who were willing to overlook his past. He received one out of every five ballots cast in the district and placed third in the election.

In September 1996, Duke competed in Louisianas United States Senate open primary, placing fourth among 15 candidates, with 140,910 votes, and carrying several rural parishes. Five years earlier, in March 1991, Duke launched a campaign for the governorship of Louisiana. His bid attracted enormous publicity, and his long record of bigotry came under heightened scrutiny. In response, Duke claimed to have discarded his racist beliefs. His claim was belied, however, by a number of recent anti-Semitic statements and the resignation of his campaign coordinator, who claimed that Dukes recent professions were a political ploy. Duke lost the election but won nearly 700,000 votes. In 1990, Duke ran against Democratic incumbent J. Bennett Johnston for a United States Senate seat. Although Duke lost the election, he gained 43.5% of the vote and a surprising 60% of the white vote.

Duke saw his only political victory in January 1989, when he was elected to a seat in the Louisiana State Legislature in Metairie. Despite the opposition to Duke expressed by national Republican leaders, including then-President George H.W. Bush, voters elected him by a narrow margin. Until the middle of that year, when the practice was publicly exposed, Duke sold extremist literature (including Hitlers Mein Kampf and The Turner Diaries, a racist novel written by a deceased neo-Nazi leader) from his Metairie legislative office. Duke still draws on this position to call himself a Representative, attempting to gain a more legitimate public face.

A year before being elected to the Louisiana State Legislature, Duke ran for the Presidency, first as a Democrat, and then as a third-party candidate on the ticket of the Populist Party, founded four years earlier by Willis Carto to provide far-right radicals with a platform for political office. Duke appeared on the ballot in 11 states and received 47,047 votes one-twentieth of one percent of those cast. In 1975, Duke emerged on the political scene with an unsuccessful bid for the Louisiana State Senate in 1975, receiving one-third of the votes cast.

Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says White Supremacists Will …

As the official start of the Unite the Right rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leaderDavid Dukesaid the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of PresidentDonald Trumpspromises.

This represents a turning point for the people of this country, said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. Thats what we believed in, thats why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said hes going to take our country back. Thats what we gotta do.

In a tweet, Trump condemned hate and violence in response to clashes at the rally on Saturday, though he did not call out white supremacists in particular.

Duke responded to Trumps tweet by stating that Trump should remember that White Americans were the ones to put him in office.

Duke, a former KKK Grand Wizard, has long connected his message of white supremacy to ideas espoused by the president.

During the presidential campaign, Duke stated that he and Trump had similar messages,pointing to Trump proposing policies like a border wall or Muslim ban.

Donald Trump is talking implicitly. Im talking explicitly,Duke said last year, according to Time.

Duke supported Trumps campaign and publicly celebrated his lead on election night. Trump disavowed Duke and the KKK, but only after initially declining to do so, claiming he didnt know anything about him.

This weekends rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, called Unite the Right, was nominally billed as a protest against the removal of a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The rally drew out hundreds of demonstratorsbearing Nazi symbols and Confederate flags and chanting racist slogans. Violence has erupted between the far-right rally attendees and counter-protestors, leading Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) to declare a state of emergency.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly referred to far-right rally participants as far-left.

Iowa Rep. Steve King stands by his remark that “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, who has a history of controversial statements on immigration and race, is drawing condemnation for a Sunday tweet in support of a right-wing Dutch politician, in which King wrote, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

King’s tweet came in support of Geert Wilders, a Dutch parliamentarian who hopes to lead that country’s government in Wednesday’s elections. Wilders has called for banning the Quran in the Netherlands and shutting down mosques.

That has led to a series of statements and tweets slamming King. Iowa GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufmann said, “I do not agree with Congressman King’s statement. We are a nation of immigrants, and diversity is the strength of any nation and any community.”

Conservative commentator Bill Kristol tweeted: “Is it worth making the obvious point that what American history has been about is ‘restoring’ ourselves with ‘somebody else’s babies?’ “

NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation, sounded a similar note:

But King also has his supporters, including former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who tweeted “GOD BLESS STEVE KING!!! #TruthRISING.” Duke also suggested “sanity reigns supreme” in King’s congressional district.

Duke’s support seemed to spur the response from Kaufmann, the Iowa GOP chairman, which came under the heading: “David Duke isn’t welcome in Iowa.”

And King himself refused to back away from the tweet. On CNN Monday morning, King said, “I meant exactly what I said,” and that he’d “like to see an America that’s just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same, from that perspective.”

Donald Trump’s history of talking about David Duke and white …

On Sunday, Donald Trump dodged repeated questions about the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke, who endorsed him last week. Today, Trumps blaming an earpiece and insisting he still doesnt know much about the countrys most infamous white supremacist.

Amid a presidential bid marked by the candidates racially charged statements about blacks and Latinos not to mention Trumps promise to ban Muslims from entering the country his refusal to condemn Duke has sparked outrage and condemnation. And despite Trumps assertion that he doesnt know anything about white supremacists and Duke, hes been asked again and again aboutDuke and other white supremacists for months. Further, hes been talking about Duke for years.

RELATED:Who is David Duke, the white supremacist who endorsed Donald Trump?

Heres a look at everything hes said about the Klan, David Duke and those who find inspiration in messages of white supremacy.

February 29, 2016, interview with TODAYs Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer:I had a lousy earpiece

Morning Joe , 2/29/16, 7:25 AM ET

While speaking on the TODAY Show, 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump discusses the controversy over David Dukes endorsement.

TRUMP: First of all, he talked about David Duke and other groups, he talked about other groups

GUTHRIE: But you said three times I dont know who David Duke is

TRUMP: No, no, well, I know who he is, but I never met David Duke, so when you talk about it, Ive never met David Duke.

GUTHRIE: But in 2000 you refused to run on the Reform Party platform because David Duke was a member of it.

TRUMP: I disavowed him a day before in a major press conference, and Im saying to myself, how many times do I have to continue to disavow people, and the question was asked about David Duke and various groups, and I dont know who the groups are he was unable to tell me that.

GUTHRIE: He said he was just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, and you said, Honestly, I dont know David Duke.

TRUMP: Well, let me tell you, Im sitting in a house in Florida with a very bad earpiece they gave me, and well, what I heard was various groups. And I dont mind disavowing anybody, and I disavowed David Duke, and I disavowed him the day before at a major news conference now I go and I sit down again, and I have a lousy earpiece that is provided by them, and frankly, he talked about groups, and I have no problem disavowing groups, but I have to know who they are. It would be very unfair to disavow a group if the group shouldnt be disavowed. But I disavowed David Duke I disavowed David Duke all weekend long, on Facebook and Twitter, and its not enough.

February 28, 2016, Twitter: I disavow

February 27, 2016, interview with CNNs Jake Tapper: I dont know anything about David Duke, OK?

TAPPER: I want to ask you about the Anti-Defamation League, which this week called on you to publicly condemn unequivocally the racism of former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who recently said that voting against you at this point would be treason to your heritage.Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you dont want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election?

TRUMP: Well, just so you understand, I dont know anything about David Duke. OK? I dont know anything about what youre even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I dont know. I dont know, did he endorse me or whats going on, because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists. And so youre asking me a question that Im supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about.

TAPPER: Would you say unequivocally that you condemn them and you dont want their support?

TRUMP: Well, I have to look at the group. I mean, I dont know what group youre talking about.You wouldnt want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I would have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them. And certainly, I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong.

TAPPER: The Ku Klux Klan?

TRUMP: But you may have groups in there that are totally fine, and it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups, and I will let you know.

TAPPER: OK. I mean, Im just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, but

TRUMP: I dont know any honestly, I dont know David Duke. I dont believe I have ever met him. Im pretty sure I didnt meet him. And I just dont know anything about him.

RELATED: Trump: I dont know anything about David Duke

February 26, 2016, press conference: I disavow

TRUMP: I didnt know he endorsed me, I disavow.

February 25, 2016, interview with NBC News in spin room after Republican debate: I disavow

TRUMP: I disavow it, but I didnt know that.

January 2016, Twitter: Retweets galore

Trump routinely retweets Twitter users with ties to white supremacists, most memorably tweeting a photoshopped mockery of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush posted by a user with the name WhiteGenocideTM.

A social media analytics firm surveyed 21 recent users whod received Trump retweets in January and found that nearly a third were well-known white supremacist Twitter accounts, while nearly two-thirds were users following at least three accounts who used a well-known white supremacist hashtag.

December 29, 2015, press gaggle in Iowa: Duke is wrong

REPORTER: David Duke says youre more extreme than him in many ways.

TRUMP: Well, Ill tell you what, Im somebody thats extremely inclusive. I want people to get along. We have a president thats dividing our country, terribly dividing our country, and Im going to bring people together, and youre going to see some wonderful things happening with our country.

REPORTER: So is David Duke wrong?

TRUMP: David Duke certainly would be wrong.

September 22, 2015, interview with the New York Times: His fathers alleged arrest at a KKK rally in Queens, New York

NYT: Have you seen this story about police arresting a Fred Trump who lived at that Devonshire address in 1927 after a Ku Klux Klan rally turned violent?

TRUMP: Totally false. We lived on Wareham. The Devonshire I know there is a road Devonshire, but I dont think my father ever lived on Devonshire.

NYT: The Census shows that he lived there with your mother there. But regardless, you never heard about that story?

TRUMP: It never happened. And by the way, I saw that it was one little website that said it. It never happened. And they said there were no charges, no nothing. Its unfair to mention it, to be honest, because there were no charges. They said there were charges against other people, but there were absolutely no charges, totally false.Somebody showed me that website it was a little website, and somebody did that. By the way, did you notice that there were no charges? Well, if there are no charges, that means it shouldnt be mentioned.

Because my father, there were no charges against him, I dont know about the other people involved. But there were zero charges against him. So assuming it was him I dont even think it was him, I never even heard about it. So its really not fair to mention. It never happened.

February 14, 2000, interview with NBC on a rumored presidential run with the Reform Party: A bigot, a racist, a problem

TRUMP: Well, youve got David Duke just joined a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. Buchanans a disaster, as weve, you know, covered. Jesses a terrific guy who just left the party. And he, you know, its unfortunate, but he just left the party. Hes going to be doing his Independence Party from Minnesota. And hes a terrific guy and a terrific governor, and hes got a great future. And Ive always said, Matt, that I would run if I thought I could win, and in order to win

LAUER: Not only the nomination, but the presidency.

TRUMP: the whole thing. I dont want to get 20 percent of the vote, I think I could, and I know I could get the nomination. New York wants me. Texas wants me. Many of the states want me. And theyre, you know, theyre rather devastated because they dont like the alternatives. I always said, and I said to you if you can win the whole thing, you can only win the whole thing with a totally unified party.

The white nationalist and former KKK grand wizard encouraged his listeners to volunteer for Trump.

David Duke, a white nationalist and former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard, told his audience Wednesday that voting for anyone besides Donald Trump is really treason to your heritage.

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. BuzzFeed News first reported the comments.

“Im not saying I endorse everything about Trump. In fact, I havent 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.

The former Louisiana representative told listeners to start volunteering for Trump.

And I am telling you that it is your job now to get active. Get off your duff. Get off your rear end thats getting fatter and fatter for many of you everyday on your chairs. When this shows over, go out, call the Republican Party, but call Donald Trumps headquarters, volunteer, he said. Theyre screaming for volunteers. Go in there, youre gonna meet people who are going to have the same kind of mind-set that you have.

In December, Duke told POLITICO that Trumps candidacy allows Americans to be more open about their racial animus.

Hes made it OK to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today, because I think European Americans know they are the only group that cant defend their own essential interests and their point of view, Duke said. Hes meant a lot for the human rights of European Americans.

Laura Ingrahams Anti-Immigrant Rant Was So Racist It Was …

Fox News anchor Laura Ingrahams Wednesday night monologue about immigrants destroying America was so racist it got the endorsement of David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan. During the opening to her primetime show The Ingraham Angle, Ingraham complained that the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people, she said, in the form of documented and undocumented immigrants. Minutes later, Duke tweeted praise for Ingraham. One of the most important (truthful) monologues in the history of MSM, he wrote above a clip of Ingrahams rant. He later deleted the tweet. It should be no surprise that Ingrahams rhetoric got the endorsement of an open white supremacist. Ingrahams fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson also echoed white nationalist rhetoric when he said immigrants were leading to the collapse of the American family in June. Ingraham and Carlsons monologues borrowed the rhetoric of what white nationalists falsely call white genocide, an innuendo that refers to racist fears about people of color coming to outnumber white people in the United States. A large segment of white nationalists also hitch their fears to the claim that the left and/or Jewish people are encouraging immigration to dilute the white race. White supremacists talk a lot about the inherent threat posed by immigrants and refugees, particularly those of color, she previously told The Daily Beast. This is obviously a shout-out to the sense that white supremacists have of being under siege. Its a shout-out to the concept of white genocide, which is a popular trope among white supremacists and its something they use as a recruiting tool: a sense of fear of the other. Duke has accused Zionists of planning to ethnically cleanse Europeans and Americans and even said Anthony Bourdain wanted to exterminate the white race. Ingraham blamed the left for pushing out whites. From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed, Ingraham said. Now, much of this is related to both illegal and in some cases legal immigration that, of course, progressives love. Ingrahams remarks came during a riff on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist who recently won a Democratic primary in New York for a seat in Congress. Ocasio-Cortez, a young Latina progressive, had appeared on a podcast where she discussed the collapse of Americas middle class. Ingraham claimed the nations real troubles came from the lefts effort to remake America by allowing more immigrants into the country. Later in the program, Ingraham dismissed structural racism in the criminal justice system (an objective fact measurable in disproportionate policing and prosecution of black Americans) by asking about black-on-black crime (a conservative cliche used to demonize the black community). But is black-on-black crime, for instance, right now, in Chicago a bigger problem for the community than just the racism that you claim is in the criminal justice system? she asked when a guest mentioned recognizing racial bias in the countrys courts. In four days, white supremacists are scheduled to rally in Washington, D.C. to mark the one-year anniversary of Unite the Right, last years deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Permit applications show Duke is expected to be a featured speaker.

David Duke to speak at white nationalist conference in Tennessee

Headlining the list of speakers at the joint conference between the American Freedom Party and Council of Conservative Citizens is David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan who is among the most prominent white supremacist leaders in the United States. He will be joined by Michael Hill, president of League of the South, which organized an October anti-immigration”White Lives Matter” rally in Shelbyville, estimated by the Anti-Defamation League to be the second largest white supremacist rally in a decade. Vermin Supreme, right joins the other anti-racist organizations to march into the park to protest the annual American Renaissance conference at the Montgomery Bell State Park in Burns, Tenn., Saturday, April 28, 2018.(Photo: Lacy Atkins / The Tennessean) Virginia Abernethy, a Vanderbilt University professor emerita who previously described herself to The Tennessean as an “ethnic separatist,” and Kevin MacDonald, whom the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as “the neo-Nazi movement’s favorite academic,” are also set to speak. Both the American Freedom Party, formerly known as American Third Position, and the Council of Conservative Citizens are designated white nationalist hate groupsby the SPLC. More: Why white nationalists are descending on Tennessee’s state parks More: Are white nationalist groups meeting in state park facilities? Tennessee won’t say The event taking place Friday through Sunday comes just after the annual American Renaissance conference in late April, which has been held for seven years at Montgomery Bell Inn and Convention Center and has regularly drawn anti-racist protesters. American Renaissance, a magazine-turned-blog affiliated with the New Century Foundation, is also considered a white nationalist hate group by the SPLC.

The anti-fascist collective has created Facebook events to “Unwelcome the AFP & CCC” when conference attendees arrive on Friday afternoon and for an “Oppose The Hate” rally and march from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday outside the state park inn. Jam City Antifa is encouraging participants to “bring signs, banners flags and noise making equipment” in an effort to disrupt the conference. Ahead of the weekend events, the group is also organizing a protest Tuesday afternoon at Vanderbilt University against Abernethy, who is speaking at the conference. On Thursday, the group plans to hold a silent march and vigil at Public Square Park in Nashville “to honor those who have been affectedby the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist groups throughout history,” Jam City Antifa wrote on a Facebook event page. It noted that Hill’s League of the South was among the groups that helped organize and participate in Unite the Right, the Charlottesville, Virginia rally in August that left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead after a car drove into a crowd of activists.

Bags, masks and “anything that could be considered a weapon” are prohibited, he said. Protesters will be assigned to a designated area that will keep them separated from conference attendees, as park officialshave required during recent American Renaissance conferences held at the park. The state park’s hotel, restaurant and conference center will be open only to registered conference guests, and across Montgomery Bell State Park Saturday, visitors will likely notice increased security, Ward said. The late-April American Renaissance conference brought roughly two dozen protesters and 100 state and local law enforcement officers, including those stationed on the roof of the hotel and circling overhead by helicopter. TDEC declined to share specifics about how large a law enforcement presence would be on hand this weekend, though Tennessee Highway Patrol is “aware of the meeting” and has allocated resources for the event, said Lt. Bill Miller. Reach Natalie Allison at nallison@tennessean.com. Follow her on Twitter at @natalie_allison.

David Duke | Profiles | ADL

ActivitiesPromoting anti-Semitism abroad Prior to founding the European Unity and Rights Organization (EURO), which he currently leads, as well as its predecessor, the National Organization for European American Rights (NOFEAR), Duke established in 1980 the National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP). He described the group as primarily a white rights lobby organization, a racialist movement, mainly middle class people and likened its message to that of the Ku Klux Klan. Indeed, NAAWP was housed in the former headquarters of the Knights of the KKK, and Duke used the facilities to produce the NAAWP newsletter. From that office, he also produced the Louisiana edition of The White Patriot, a periodical of the Knights of the KKK. NAAWP had such close ties to the KKK because, throughout the 1970s, Duke was a Klan leader. In 1974, he founded the Louisiana-based Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and became the groups Imperial Wizard. Dukes efforts to market himself as a new brand of Klansman well-groomed, engaged, professional were successful, and Duke boosted Klan membership. Duke urged an overhaul of the organization at the grass-roots level, encouraging his colleagues to get out of the cow pasture and into hotel meeting rooms. In media appearances and political venues, he skillfully exploited issues like illegal immigration, affirmative action and court-ordered busing, and sanitized Klan vocabulary, titling himself national director and referring to cross burnings as illuminations. In 1976, he organized the largest Klan rally the nation had witnessed since the 1960s in Walker, Louisiana, with an estimated attendance of 2,700. In addition, he built up local organizations in other states, including California, Florida and Texas. Although he publicly shunned violence, he was convicted in 1979 of inciting a riot in connection with a Klan rally in suburban New Orleans. While a student at Louisiana State University, he founded the White Youth Alliance, a group affiliated with the neo-Nazi National Socialist White Peoples Party in Arlington, Virginia. To protest a speech by attorney William Kunstler at Tulane University, Duke picketed wearing a Nazi brown shirt and a swastika armband and carried a placard that said Kunstler is a Communist-Jew and Gas the Chicago 7 (referring to the well-known leftist activists). Duke now describes the event as a folly of youth. In late 1998, Duke authored and self-published a 700-page autobiography, My Awakening. In this magnum opus, which he reprinted in 2000, Duke attempted to prove that blacks are genetically inferior to whites, while devoting almost 250 pages to anti-Jewish themes. Duke wrote that Jews thoroughly dominate the news and entertainment media in almost every civilized nation; they control the international markets and stock exchanges; and no government can resist doing their bidding on any issue of importance, and he noted that Jews and Gentiles are in a state of ethnic war, predicting that the ultimate clash between these two diametrically opposed genotypes and cultures fast approaches with the new millenium. In its unabashed racist animosity, the book seemed to represent a conscious decision by Duke to abandon his two-decade long attempts to obfuscate, repackage, intellectualize and dress up his opinions and ideas. Duke also wrote two short pieces of very different sorts in the 1970s. In 1976, assuming the name Dorothy Vanderbilt, he authored Finders Keepers, a self-help sex manual for women. In 1973, as Mohammad X, Duke wrote African Atto, a street-fighting manual avowedly written to help the Klan identify “radical” African-Americans, who would buy the book. In December 1998, Duke ran for a Congressional seat in Louisianas First Congressional District. He positioned himself as an anti-government conservative who stood up for the little man against programs such as affirmative action, minority set-asides and welfare. His message seemed to hit a nerve among some frustrated and alienated white voters who were willing to overlook his past. He received one out of every five ballots cast in the district and placed third in the election. In September 1996, Duke competed in Louisianas United States Senate open primary, placing fourth among 15 candidates, with 140,910 votes, and carrying several rural parishes. Five years earlier, in March 1991, Duke launched a campaign for the governorship of Louisiana. His bid attracted enormous publicity, and his long record of bigotry came under heightened scrutiny. In response, Duke claimed to have discarded his racist beliefs. His claim was belied, however, by a number of recent anti-Semitic statements and the resignation of his campaign coordinator, who claimed that Dukes recent professions were a political ploy. Duke lost the election but won nearly 700,000 votes. In 1990, Duke ran against Democratic incumbent J. Bennett Johnston for a United States Senate seat. Although Duke lost the election, he gained 43.5% of the vote and a surprising 60% of the white vote. Duke saw his only political victory in January 1989, when he was elected to a seat in the Louisiana State Legislature in Metairie. Despite the opposition to Duke expressed by national Republican leaders, including then-President George H.W. Bush, voters elected him by a narrow margin. Until the middle of that year, when the practice was publicly exposed, Duke sold extremist literature (including Hitlers Mein Kampf and The Turner Diaries, a racist novel written by a deceased neo-Nazi leader) from his Metairie legislative office. Duke still draws on this position to call himself a Representative, attempting to gain a more legitimate public face. A year before being elected to the Louisiana State Legislature, Duke ran for the Presidency, first as a Democrat, and then as a third-party candidate on the ticket of the Populist Party, founded four years earlier by Willis Carto to provide far-right radicals with a platform for political office. Duke appeared on the ballot in 11 states and received 47,047 votes one-twentieth of one percent of those cast. In 1975, Duke emerged on the political scene with an unsuccessful bid for the Louisiana State Senate in 1975, receiving one-third of the votes cast.

Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says White Supremacists Will …

As the official start of the Unite the Right rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leaderDavid Dukesaid the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of PresidentDonald Trumpspromises. This represents a turning point for the people of this country, said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. Thats what we believed in, thats why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said hes going to take our country back. Thats what we gotta do. In a tweet, Trump condemned hate and violence in response to clashes at the rally on Saturday, though he did not call out white supremacists in particular. Duke responded to Trumps tweet by stating that Trump should remember that White Americans were the ones to put him in office. Duke, a former KKK Grand Wizard, has long connected his message of white supremacy to ideas espoused by the president. During the presidential campaign, Duke stated that he and Trump had similar messages,pointing to Trump proposing policies like a border wall or Muslim ban. Donald Trump is talking implicitly. Im talking explicitly,Duke said last year, according to Time. Duke supported Trumps campaign and publicly celebrated his lead on election night. Trump disavowed Duke and the KKK, but only after initially declining to do so, claiming he didnt know anything about him. This weekends rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, called Unite the Right, was nominally billed as a protest against the removal of a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The rally drew out hundreds of demonstratorsbearing Nazi symbols and Confederate flags and chanting racist slogans. Violence has erupted between the far-right rally attendees and counter-protestors, leading Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) to declare a state of emergency. Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly referred to far-right rally participants as far-left. Ex-KKK Leader David Duke Says White Supremacists Will ‘Fulfill’ Trump’s Promises

David Duke Supports Steve King Tweet, While Iowa GOP Chair …

Iowa Rep. Steve King stands by his remark that “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg via Getty Images hide caption Iowa Rep. Steve King stands by his remark that “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, who has a history of controversial statements on immigration and race, is drawing condemnation for a Sunday tweet in support of a right-wing Dutch politician, in which King wrote, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” King’s tweet came in support of Geert Wilders, a Dutch parliamentarian who hopes to lead that country’s government in Wednesday’s elections. Wilders has called for banning the Quran in the Netherlands and shutting down mosques. That has led to a series of statements and tweets slamming King. Iowa GOP Chairman Jeff Kaufmann said, “I do not agree with Congressman King’s statement. We are a nation of immigrants, and diversity is the strength of any nation and any community.” Conservative commentator Bill Kristol tweeted: “Is it worth making the obvious point that what American history has been about is ‘restoring’ ourselves with ‘somebody else’s babies?’ ” NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation, sounded a similar note: But King also has his supporters, including former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who tweeted “GOD BLESS STEVE KING!!! #TruthRISING.” Duke also suggested “sanity reigns supreme” in King’s congressional district. Duke’s support seemed to spur the response from Kaufmann, the Iowa GOP chairman, which came under the heading: “David Duke isn’t welcome in Iowa.” And King himself refused to back away from the tweet. On CNN Monday morning, King said, “I meant exactly what I said,” and that he’d “like to see an America that’s just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same, from that perspective.”

Donald Trump’s history of talking about David Duke and white …

On Sunday, Donald Trump dodged repeated questions about the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke, who endorsed him last week. Today, Trumps blaming an earpiece and insisting he still doesnt know much about the countrys most infamous white supremacist. Amid a presidential bid marked by the candidates racially charged statements about blacks and Latinos not to mention Trumps promise to ban Muslims from entering the country his refusal to condemn Duke has sparked outrage and condemnation. And despite Trumps assertion that he doesnt know anything about white supremacists and Duke, hes been asked again and again aboutDuke and other white supremacists for months. Further, hes been talking about Duke for years. RELATED:Who is David Duke, the white supremacist who endorsed Donald Trump? Heres a look at everything hes said about the Klan, David Duke and those who find inspiration in messages of white supremacy. February 29, 2016, interview with TODAYs Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer:I had a lousy earpiece Morning Joe , 2/29/16, 7:25 AM ET While speaking on the TODAY Show, 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump discusses the controversy over David Dukes endorsement. TRUMP: First of all, he talked about David Duke and other groups, he talked about other groups GUTHRIE: But you said three times I dont know who David Duke is TRUMP: No, no, well, I know who he is, but I never met David Duke, so when you talk about it, Ive never met David Duke. GUTHRIE: But in 2000 you refused to run on the Reform Party platform because David Duke was a member of it. TRUMP: I disavowed him a day before in a major press conference, and Im saying to myself, how many times do I have to continue to disavow people, and the question was asked about David Duke and various groups, and I dont know who the groups are he was unable to tell me that. GUTHRIE: He said he was just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, and you said, Honestly, I dont know David Duke. TRUMP: Well, let me tell you, Im sitting in a house in Florida with a very bad earpiece they gave me, and well, what I heard was various groups. And I dont mind disavowing anybody, and I disavowed David Duke, and I disavowed him the day before at a major news conference now I go and I sit down again, and I have a lousy earpiece that is provided by them, and frankly, he talked about groups, and I have no problem disavowing groups, but I have to know who they are. It would be very unfair to disavow a group if the group shouldnt be disavowed. But I disavowed David Duke I disavowed David Duke all weekend long, on Facebook and Twitter, and its not enough. February 28, 2016, Twitter: I disavow February 27, 2016, interview with CNNs Jake Tapper: I dont know anything about David Duke, OK? TAPPER: I want to ask you about the Anti-Defamation League, which this week called on you to publicly condemn unequivocally the racism of former KKK grand wizard David Duke, who recently said that voting against you at this point would be treason to your heritage.Will you unequivocally condemn David Duke and say that you dont want his vote or that of other white supremacists in this election? TRUMP: Well, just so you understand, I dont know anything about David Duke. OK? I dont know anything about what youre even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So I dont know. I dont know, did he endorse me or whats going on, because, you know, I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about white supremacists. And so youre asking me a question that Im supposed to be talking about people that I know nothing about. TAPPER: Would you say unequivocally that you condemn them and you dont want their support? TRUMP: Well, I have to look at the group. I mean, I dont know what group youre talking about.You wouldnt want me to condemn a group that I know nothing about. I would have to look. If you would send me a list of the groups, I will do research on them. And certainly, I would disavow if I thought there was something wrong. TAPPER: The Ku Klux Klan? TRUMP: But you may have groups in there that are totally fine, and it would be very unfair. So give me a list of the groups, and I will let you know. TAPPER: OK. I mean, Im just talking about David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan here, but TRUMP: I dont know any honestly, I dont know David Duke. I dont believe I have ever met him. Im pretty sure I didnt meet him. And I just dont know anything about him. RELATED: Trump: I dont know anything about David Duke February 26, 2016, press conference: I disavow TRUMP: I didnt know he endorsed me, I disavow. February 25, 2016, interview with NBC News in spin room after Republican debate: I disavow TRUMP: I disavow it, but I didnt know that. January 2016, Twitter: Retweets galore Trump routinely retweets Twitter users with ties to white supremacists, most memorably tweeting a photoshopped mockery of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush posted by a user with the name WhiteGenocideTM. A social media analytics firm surveyed 21 recent users whod received Trump retweets in January and found that nearly a third were well-known white supremacist Twitter accounts, while nearly two-thirds were users following at least three accounts who used a well-known white supremacist hashtag. December 29, 2015, press gaggle in Iowa: Duke is wrong REPORTER: David Duke says youre more extreme than him in many ways. TRUMP: Well, Ill tell you what, Im somebody thats extremely inclusive. I want people to get along. We have a president thats dividing our country, terribly dividing our country, and Im going to bring people together, and youre going to see some wonderful things happening with our country. REPORTER: So is David Duke wrong? TRUMP: David Duke certainly would be wrong. September 22, 2015, interview with the New York Times: His fathers alleged arrest at a KKK rally in Queens, New York NYT: Have you seen this story about police arresting a Fred Trump who lived at that Devonshire address in 1927 after a Ku Klux Klan rally turned violent? TRUMP: Totally false. We lived on Wareham. The Devonshire I know there is a road Devonshire, but I dont think my father ever lived on Devonshire. NYT: The Census shows that he lived there with your mother there. But regardless, you never heard about that story? TRUMP: It never happened. And by the way, I saw that it was one little website that said it. It never happened. And they said there were no charges, no nothing. Its unfair to mention it, to be honest, because there were no charges. They said there were charges against other people, but there were absolutely no charges, totally false.Somebody showed me that website it was a little website, and somebody did that. By the way, did you notice that there were no charges? Well, if there are no charges, that means it shouldnt be mentioned. Because my father, there were no charges against him, I dont know about the other people involved. But there were zero charges against him. So assuming it was him I dont even think it was him, I never even heard about it. So its really not fair to mention. It never happened. August 20, 2015, after a Latino man was beaten: Trump says supporters are passionate Trump said the beating would be a shame, before adding, I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country, and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate. February 19, 2000, op-ed for The New York Times: Not company I wish to keep. TRUMP: Although I am totally comfortable with the people in the New York Independence Party, I leave the Reform Party to David Duke, Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani. That is not company I wish to keep. February 14, 2000, interview with NBC on a rumored presidential run with the Reform Party: A bigot, a racist, a problem TRUMP: Well, youve got David Duke just joined a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. Buchanans a disaster, as weve, you know, covered. Jesses a terrific guy who just left the party. And he, you know, its unfortunate, but he just left the party. Hes going to be doing his Independence Party from Minnesota. And hes a terrific guy and a terrific governor, and hes got a great future. And Ive always said, Matt, that I would run if I thought I could win, and in order to win LAUER: Not only the nomination, but the presidency. TRUMP: the whole thing. I dont want to get 20 percent of the vote, I think I could, and I know I could get the nomination. New York wants me. Texas wants me. Many of the states want me. And theyre, you know, theyre rather devastated because they dont like the alternatives. I always said, and I said to you if you can win the whole thing, you can only win the whole thing with a totally unified party.

David Duke: Voting against Donald Trump is ‘treason to your …

Donald Trump has made it OK to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today,” former KKK grand wizard David Duke said. | AP Photo The white nationalist and former KKK grand wizard encouraged his listeners to volunteer for Trump. By ELIZA COLLINS 02/25/2016 11:59 AM EST David Duke, a white nationalist and former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard, told his audience Wednesday that voting for anyone besides Donald Trump is really treason to your heritage. 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. BuzzFeed News first reported the comments. Story Continued Below “Im not saying I endorse everything about Trump. In fact, I havent 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. The former Louisiana representative told listeners to start volunteering for Trump. And I am telling you that it is your job now to get active. Get off your duff. Get off your rear end thats getting fatter and fatter for many of you everyday on your chairs. When this shows over, go out, call the Republican Party, but call Donald Trumps headquarters, volunteer, he said. Theyre screaming for volunteers. Go in there, youre gonna meet people who are going to have the same kind of mind-set that you have. In December, Duke told POLITICO that Trumps candidacy allows Americans to be more open about their racial animus. Hes made it OK to talk about these incredible concerns of European Americans today, because I think European Americans know they are the only group that cant defend their own essential interests and their point of view, Duke said. Hes meant a lot for the human rights of European Americans. Missing out on the latest scoops? Sign up for POLITICO Playbook and get the latest news, every morning in your inbox.
