Rosario: And another thing about Trump, David Duke and parental responsibility – TwinCities.com-Pioneer Press

Things that made me shake my head this week:

Charlottesville: The presidential disaster was his predictable lunatic self this week following the tragic events in Charlottesville, Va.Hardly surprising, and we still have more than three years to go with this one-man circus. Heres what I dont get, though. Trump is hardly shy about taking potshots at anyone, from fellow Republicans John McCain to Mitch McConnell. How this bombastic billionaire became the proletarian champion of mostly white working and middle-class folks of both genders is frankly baffling to me. Im sure ascendancy to the White House will be analyzed by revisionist historians for decades to come.

But what really struck me was how he sat on his tongue or fingers and did not tweet or directly respond in any way to statements from former KKK Grand Wizard leader and avowed white supremacist David Duke.

I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists, Duke said of Trump. Sounded like Duke and his minions have Trump in their pockets. The presidents reaction? Crickets so far. I can only surmise he thinks Duke is among those very fine people on the neo-Nazi side he spoke about this week.

Confederate statues:Tell me if Im wrong here. The Confederacy voted to secede and waged war on the United States of America.

So why the objection to taking down statues, monuments and other public tributes in honor of enemy combatants and traitors who killed thousands, including Minnesotans? A spokesperson for the Minnesota Historical Society confirmed there are no such structures here. Still, Lake Calhoun, named after a Union military figure who engaged in warfare against the Dakota people here, was recently renamed.

Whitewashing history? Give me a break. These tributes were mostly erected during the Jim Crow South. Many were placed in front of courthouses and other public buildings as a way to intimidate blacks and remind supporters that white supremacy was still alive, potent and viable in the South.

They should all come down and be placed in a museum specifically built to showcase the dark chapters of American history.

St. Paul post-birthday-bash melee: About a hundred youths took part in fights and chaos that broke out this past weekend following a birthday celebration at a recreation center next to Central High School. Someone fired at least three shots outside during an incident that spread to the nearby Green Line light rail station and might be connected to a serious assault on a young man at the downtown St. Paul stop.

The combatants were mostly black teens, giving local online haters whipped up by the events in Virginia easy ammunition to confirm racist views.

But thats not an excuse for lawlessness.

I partly grew up in what former President Jimmy Carter once described as the worst ghetto in America. It sure was a crime-plagued hell hole several years before Carter paid my childhood hood a much-publicized visit. But my overworked single mom never, ever allowed our dirt-poor plight there to be used as an excuse for me to act like an idiot. I was way more fearful of her than cops.

Proper upbringing starts in the home. And if the parents in those homes are not doing their jobs or are even enabling such behavior, then find someone else to model or reach inside and cling to your own sense of self-respect, no matter how young you are. Its not about color or background. Its about behavior and doing the right thing.

Former KKK leader David Duke suspended from Twitter – Death and Taxes

Former congressman and Grand Wizard/National Director of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke has been suspended from Twitter. The white supremacist was present at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virignia last weekend where he said neo-Nazis, KKK members, and various other far-right groups had gathered to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. One woman was murdered by a neo-Nazi who drove his car through a crowd of protesters at the rally.

Twitter has faced a fair amount of criticism over the last few months for their habit of suspending or penalizing people who have the audacity to send curse words to media figures with blue check marks next to their names. Meanwhile, people like Richard Spencer and other open white supremacists are themselves verified and continue to use the social media platform to spread blatantly racist rhetoric. But hey, at least theyre polite about it.

In any case, Duke was one of the first openly racist figures Donald Trump was asked to denounce while he was running for president and he had a hard time doing it. After Trumps impromptu press conference on Charlottesville where POTUS heaped blame on the alt-left for the white supremacist-led violence, Duke (and Richard Spencer) praised the president for his remarks.

Here is what you see when you try to go to Dukes account at the moment.

For those who may be confused about the concept of free speech, Twitter is not the government.

Former KKK leader David Duke revealed as a fan of Jeremy Corbyn … – The Sun

Neo-Nazi, David Duke, heaped praise on the labour leader after the General Election and believes Corbyn helps his cause find ‘sunshine in the world’.

Corbyn this week called on Trump to condemn the KKK after the US President described white supremacists as very fine people following the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left one dead and 20 injured.

During an LBC interview on Wednesday, Corbyn said: Surely its the duty of every political leader to make sure you stand up against racism and intolerance, wherever it raises its head.

But The Sun can reveal that in a 2015 radio interview Duke claimed the election of Corbyn as Labour leader would stop Jews from running Britain.

He said: We must keep looking for the sunshine and I do believe we are going to find the sunshine in this world.

I think things are opening up. And one encouraging thing that I see nowhis positions on the Middle East.

He added: Its a really good kind of evolutionary thing, isnt it, when people are beginning to recognise Zionist power and ultimately the Jewish establishment power in Britain and in the Western World.

In a separate radio show interview in June 2017 shortly after the General Election with British fascist, Mark Collett, Duke heaped further praise on Corbyn.

He said: Hes (Corbyn) been very, very strong, certainly more than any other person that I know of in politics in Britain.

Hes been against these insane Zionist wars, so the Zionists hate his guts, even though theres a lot of commie Zionists that are very, very communist and they act like theyre anti-Zionists but there you go. Theyre not.

Trump was criticised in 2016 for refusing to condemn Duke during an interview on CNN.

Duke said on Saturday that the white nationalist rally represented a turning point for Americans.

He added: We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.

Former KKK leader David Duke praises Trump for his ‘courage’ – USA TODAY

From Trump Tower in New York City, President Trump defends his decision to delay responding to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. USA TODAY

There was a storm of negative reaction to President Trump’s news conference Tuesday in which he said both the white supremacists and counter-protesters were responsible for the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday.

Among two voices that spoke out loudly in defense of the president’s remarks: Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and white supremacist figurehead Richard Spencer.

“Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemnthe leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa,” Duke tweeted after the news conference.

Spencer said Trump “cares about the truth” and said Trump’s “statement was fair and down to earth.”

Spencer and Duke were present at the protest in Charlottesville. At that rally, Dukeexplicitly tied the white supremacist movement to Trump.

“We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said Saturday. “We are going to fulfill the promise of Donald Trump. That’s what we believe in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.”

But Monday, Duke expressed strong disappointment after Trump’s speech denouncing white supremacist groups.

“I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” Duke tweeted.

Duke also posted a more than 45-minute rambling video response Monday to Trump’s condemnation ofracist groups.

“To get elected today you can’t really speak straightforwardly and totally honestly. If you do you’re going to be crucified,” Duke said as he explained that he understood why Trump felt he needed to condemn white supremacists.

“You had to come out and say I condemn all these people,” Duke said. “President Trump please, for God’s sake, don’t feel like you’ve got to say these things. It’s not going to do you any good. They hate you.”

Duke also went on an anti-Semitic tirade about the media and called what happened in Charlottesville a “criminal conspiracy” in which white supremacists were “set up” to be attacked by the counter protesters.

“Well, our people defended themselves and some people went too far, obviously,” Duke said.

David Duke thanks Trump for blaming ‘alt-left’ for …

White nationalist leader David Duke on Tuesday thanked President Trump for blaming violence in Charlottesville, Va., on the “alt-left.”

Duke thanked Trump for his “honesty & courage” in a tweet.

Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa https://t.co/tTESdV4LP0

At apress conferenceTuesday, Trump doubled down on his claim that “both sides” were to blame for the violencein Charlottesville.

What about the alt-left that came charging at the as you say, the alt-right? Trump said.

Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do, he continued. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day.

Trump accused left-wing anti-fascist or antifa protesters of showing up “without a permit,” and said they were “very, very violent.”

“And nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now,” Trump told reporters. “You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.

Trump’s comments are certain to fuel the controversy over his response to Charlottesville, where white nationalist groups held a rally over the weekend.

On Saturday, a man attending the rally allegedly drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one woman and injuring at least 19 other people. That day, Trump initially blamed the violence on “many sides,” which led to criticism from both parties.

On Monday, he sought to end the controversy by calling racism “evil” and specifically mentioning groups including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis who took part in the rally.

Trump was criticized during the campaign by those who said he should have done more to disavow the support of Duke, a former leader of the KKK, and other white nationalists. After Duke endorsed him, Trump initially brushed off questions about his support before disavowing him.

Duke also attended the Charlottesville rally where he reiterated his support for Trump.

“We’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpAssange meets U.S. congressman, vows to prove Russia did not leak him documents A history lesson on the Confederacy for President Trump GOP senator: Trump hasn’t ‘changed much’ since campaign MORE, and that’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back and that’s what we gotta do,” Duke told reporterson Saturday.

Outing the Bay Area campaign contributors of KKK fascist David Duke – Bay Area Indymedia

Some have suggested that the best way to fight back against all the hate being spread around by the Trump regime, the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, is by exposing the supporters of hate and violence in the good old U.S.A.

Outing the Bay Area campaign contributors of KKK fascist David Duke

By Lynda Carson – August 17, 2017

This past week according to Newsweek, David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), praised President Donald J. Trump for supporting the fascists, neo-Nazis, KKK and the hate mongering White Supremacists who brought blood and violence to the streets of Charlottesville recently. In 1927, reportedly Trumps father was arrested after a KKK rally in Queens, which may help to shed light as to why Trump is a supporter of hate groups and the KKK, that helped to bring him into office.

The recent violent white supremacist rally that David Duke attended, resulted in blood in the streets of Charlottesville, and the death of Heather Heyer when she was run down by an alleged Nazi sympathizer while she was protesting against the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. Reportedly, 19 others were injured when the Nazi sympathizer plowed into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators.

According to wikipedia, David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, politician, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, convicted felon, and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Some have suggested that the best way to fight back against all the hate being spread around by the Trump regime, the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, is by exposing the supporters of hate and violence, in the good old U.S.A.

One place to start exposing the supporters of hate, would be to expose some of the local supporters of David Duke who reside in the Bay Area.

David Duke ran for the U.S. Senate during 2016, from Mandeville, Louisiana, and lost. However, according to public records, Duke had a number of campaign contributors located locally here in the Bay Area.

William Hubbel, of 1138 Skycrest Dr., in Walnut Creek is one of the proud supporters of David Duke during 2016, and according to records, he gave $500 to Dukes campaign. When I asked him about his support for David Duke, William Hubbel was very surprised, but said, In this era of communism as the noose is tightening around our necks, and we may be rounded up and shot in the back of the head, I decline to comment about my contribution to David Duke. I am not a member of the KKK, but I sure as hell am not a member of the Black Lives Matter movement either.

Karen Ardith Woodbury, of 2720 35th Avenue, in San Francisco, is another proud supporter of David Duke, and she gave $250 to Dukes campaign during 2016. Once an attorney who no longer practices law, Karen Woodbury has a chiropractors license that expires in November of 2017. Karen Woodbury did not respond to my request for an interview regarding her support of David Duke.

Other proud supporters of David Duke include:

Jake Mavity, of 716 Haight St., in San Francisco, gave $600 to Dukes campaign during 2016.

Brodin L. Sutherland, of 6604 Las Animas, Martinez, gave $500 to Dukes campaign during 2016.

Roger Grigsby, of Santa Cruz, gave $500 to Dukes campaign in 2016.

John Downey, of San Lorenzo, gave $285 to Dukes campaign during 2016.

Kevin D. Barbaro, of 19035 Lowell Ave., of Hayward, gave $240 to Dukes campaign during 2016.

And Michael Born, of 100 Humboldt, in Santa Rosa, gave $245 to Dukes campaign during 2016.

As the fascist Trump regime spreads its message of hate by supporting the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists who brought bloodshed to the streets of Charlottesville recently, the Trump regime has targeted DreamHost, a web server, and has served a warrant in the effort to get the names and addresses of people that may have protested against Trumps inauguration last January, in Washington D.C.

The attorneys of DreamHost have refused to turn over the information the fascist Trump regime wants, and DreamHost has responded with a blog claiming that “we fight for our users.”

The hate monger groups spreading hate and violence across the nation are on the rise. Trump supporters, white supremacists, fascists, anti-semites, homophobes, bigots, and other hate mongers are uniting for a demonstration on August 27 called No To Marxism In America at Martin Luther King Jr, Civic Center Park, in downtown Berkeley.

In addition to the Trump regime supporting the violence of the neo-Nazis, KKK, and white supremacists in Charlottesville lately, last February in response to protesters running Milo Yiannopoulous out of Berkeley when they objected to his racist campaign attacking sanctuary campuses, a GOP leader threatened Berkeley protesters, and promoted the idea of a Kent State massacre against the students and protesters in Berkeley.

Who is David Duke? Former KKK leader who attended Charlottesville riots and praised Donald Trump – The Sun

The conspiracy theorist denies the Holocaust ever happened and is also said to believe in racial segregation.

FORMER KKK leader David Duke was back in the public eye after addressing supporters at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, which descended into anarchy.

Here, we look at the Neo-Nazis background, what he said during the protest and comments he has made about US President Donald Trump.

AP

David Duke was the Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a chapter of the KKK, from 1974 to 1980.

The 67-year-old, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, has reportedly been influenced by William Luther Pierce who lead the white separatist group National Alliance.

The white nationalist has also been a member of the American Nazi party and is now a Republican.

He was the Republican Louisiana State Representative from 1989 to 1992 and even a candidate in the Democratic Party presidential primaries in 1988.

In November 2016, he failed to win a seat in the Senate in Louisiana.

He denies the Holocaust in which Nazi Germany killed more than six million Jewish victims during World War Two.

Central European News

Duke is against what he believes to be the Jewish control of the Federal Reserve Bank, US federal government and the media.

He is also said to believe in racial segregation.

In 2003, Duke was sentenced to 15 months in prison for filing a false tax return and for a mail fraud.

According toThe New York Times: Mr Duke was accused of telling supporters that he was in financial straits, then misusing the money they sent him from 1993 to 1999.

Duke, who has lived in Russia for five years, has two daughters with his ex-wife Chloe Eleanor Hardin.

He has praised WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Hes (Corbyn) been very, very strong, certainly more than any other person that I know of in politics in Britain, said Duke in June.

Hes been against these insane Zionist wars, so the Zionists hate his guts.

AFP or licensors

He attended theprotest on Saturday August 12 at the removal of a statue of US Civil War Confederate General Robert E Lee.

Violence erupted and a car driver ploughed into a crowd, killing Heather Hyer, 32, and injuring 19 others.

A suspect James Alex Fields, 20, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failing to stop for an accident involving a death.

While insisting he was not one of the organisers, Duke said he went to support young white Americans.

In a video captured at the scene, he told white supremacists: This represents a turning point for the people of this country.

We are determined to take our country back.

We are going to fulfil the promises of Donald Trump.

Thats what we believed in, thats why we voted for Donald Trump.

Reuters

After Trump controversially denounced alt-left supporters on Tuesday, he was praised on Twitter by Duke.

Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville and condemn the leftist terrorists, wrote Duke.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Duke has urged his supporters to back Trump.

When asked about this endorsement in February 2016, Trump said that he would disavow the backing.

He then claimed in a CNN interview that he didnt know Duke, reported the Washington Post.

In 2000, Trump bid to become the presidential nominee of the Reform Party of which Duke was then a member.

But Trump withdrew his campaign because of party in-fighting and called Duke on NBC Today a bigot, a racist, a problem.

I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party.

Lanny Keller: Thank you, George H.W. Bush, for rejecting David … – The Advocate

In the chaotic days of David Duke’s meteoric political rise in Louisiana, President George H.W. Bush got conflicting advice. Sure, the said-to-be former Klansman was in a runoff for governor of Louisiana as a Republican, damaging the party, but the White House ought to stay out of a local race, in part because Duke’s opponent was the reprehensible Edwin W. Edwards. The Texan president knew Edwards well, and understood just what a bad choice Louisiana faced.

But others, including William Bennett, one of the GOP’s intellectual lights, urged the president in 1991 that there was nothing to be done except speak for the nation as well as for the future of the Republican Party, in a rapidly changing America.

In 1991, the nation watched as Louisiana residents chose between the klansman, David Duke, a

The president made the right call, urging his friends in Louisiana to back Edwards.

Today, maybe, that would be more difficult: Party lines are more calcified. But the moral lines are as clear as ever to the elderly ex-president.

With his son, former President George W. Bush, he issued a statement in response to the Charlottesville, Virginia tragedy that “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism and hatred in all forms.”

From Louisiana, thanks again, Mr. President.

David Duke’s website, hosted by service that dropped neo-Nazi site, back online after interruption – The Advocate

UPDATE, 12:40 p.m.

Since this story was published David Duke’s website has come back online. It was not immediately clear what caused the service interruption.

Check back for more.

ORIGINAL STORY

The longtime website of former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and former Louisiana elected official David Duke was down Thursday.

Duke’s website, davidduke.com, was unavailable the day after the same company that serves as Dukes domain host, Cloudflare, shut down a neo-Nazi website, The Daily Stormer.

Cloudflares chief executive officer, Matthew Prince, wrote an email saying he decided to drop The Daily Stormer following the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters on Saturday in Charlottesville. A presumed neo-Nazi sympathizer drove into a crowd of counter-protesters that left one woman dead and 19 people injured.

Can’t see the video below? Click here.

Davidduke.com serves as Dukes vehicle to get his message out unfiltered to his followers around the world. He broadcasts a one-hour internet radio show daily from the website and posts his writings and those of others. The website has allowed Duke to speak directly to his followers without going through what he calls the Jewish-controlled media.

Duke did not immediately respond Thursday morning to a request from The Advocate for an interview on what happened to his website.

As President Donald Trump faced a barrage of criticism over his comments on deadly violence

On Wednesday, his website included four different articles on the events in Charlottesville, all of which defended the white supremacist rally and blasted the counter-protesters.

The rally, which Duke attended, has thrust him back into the news.

His statements in support of President Donald Trump have won him extensive coverage.

Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa,” Duke tweeted after Trump said at a news conference on Tuesday that both white supremacists and counter-protesters were responsible for Saturdays violence.

Dukes supportive comments have generated widespread criticism of Trump for not denouncing only the white supremacists.

Duke had faded from public view after finishing seventh in the race for the U.S. Senate last year where he received only 3 percent of the vote.

Duke, 67, served in the Louisiana state House from 1989-92 and has lost repeated races for higher political office in Louisiana. In 1991, his race for governor became a national story. He lost overall but won about 55 percent of the white vote.

From Trump Tower in New York City, President Trump defends his decision to delay responding to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. USA TODAY There was a storm of negative reaction to President Trump’s news conference Tuesday in which he said both the white supremacists and counter-protesters were responsible for the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday. Among two voices that spoke out loudly in defense of the president’s remarks: Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and white supremacist figurehead Richard Spencer. “Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemnthe leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa,” Duke tweeted after the news conference. Spencer said Trump “cares about the truth” and said Trump’s “statement was fair and down to earth.” Spencer and Duke were present at the protest in Charlottesville. At that rally, Dukeexplicitly tied the white supremacist movement to Trump. “We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said Saturday. “We are going to fulfill the promise of Donald Trump. That’s what we believe in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back.” But Monday, Duke expressed strong disappointment after Trump’s speech denouncing white supremacist groups. “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” Duke tweeted. Duke also posted a more than 45-minute rambling video response Monday to Trump’s condemnation ofracist groups. “To get elected today you can’t really speak straightforwardly and totally honestly. If you do you’re going to be crucified,” Duke said as he explained that he understood why Trump felt he needed to condemn white supremacists. “You had to come out and say I condemn all these people,” Duke said. “President Trump please, for God’s sake, don’t feel like you’ve got to say these things. It’s not going to do you any good. They hate you.” Duke also went on an anti-Semitic tirade about the media and called what happened in Charlottesville a “criminal conspiracy” in which white supremacists were “set up” to be attacked by the counter protesters. “Well, our people defended themselves and some people went too far, obviously,” Duke said.

David Duke thanks Trump for blaming ‘alt-left’ for …

White nationalist leader David Duke on Tuesday thanked President Trump for blaming violence in Charlottesville, Va., on the “alt-left.” Duke thanked Trump for his “honesty & courage” in a tweet. Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa https://t.co/tTESdV4LP0 At apress conferenceTuesday, Trump doubled down on his claim that “both sides” were to blame for the violencein Charlottesville. What about the alt-left that came charging at the as you say, the alt-right? Trump said. Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do, he continued. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day. Trump accused left-wing anti-fascist or antifa protesters of showing up “without a permit,” and said they were “very, very violent.” “And nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now,” Trump told reporters. “You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent. Trump’s comments are certain to fuel the controversy over his response to Charlottesville, where white nationalist groups held a rally over the weekend. On Saturday, a man attending the rally allegedly drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one woman and injuring at least 19 other people. That day, Trump initially blamed the violence on “many sides,” which led to criticism from both parties. On Monday, he sought to end the controversy by calling racism “evil” and specifically mentioning groups including the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis who took part in the rally. Trump was criticized during the campaign by those who said he should have done more to disavow the support of Duke, a former leader of the KKK, and other white nationalists. After Duke endorsed him, Trump initially brushed off questions about his support before disavowing him. Duke also attended the Charlottesville rally where he reiterated his support for Trump. “We’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpAssange meets U.S. congressman, vows to prove Russia did not leak him documents A history lesson on the Confederacy for President Trump GOP senator: Trump hasn’t ‘changed much’ since campaign MORE, and that’s what we believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back and that’s what we gotta do,” Duke told reporterson Saturday.

Outing the Bay Area campaign contributors of KKK fascist David Duke – Bay Area Indymedia

Some have suggested that the best way to fight back against all the hate being spread around by the Trump regime, the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, is by exposing the supporters of hate and violence in the good old U.S.A. Outing the Bay Area campaign contributors of KKK fascist David Duke By Lynda Carson – August 17, 2017 This past week according to Newsweek, David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), praised President Donald J. Trump for supporting the fascists, neo-Nazis, KKK and the hate mongering White Supremacists who brought blood and violence to the streets of Charlottesville recently. In 1927, reportedly Trumps father was arrested after a KKK rally in Queens, which may help to shed light as to why Trump is a supporter of hate groups and the KKK, that helped to bring him into office. The recent violent white supremacist rally that David Duke attended, resulted in blood in the streets of Charlottesville, and the death of Heather Heyer when she was run down by an alleged Nazi sympathizer while she was protesting against the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. Reportedly, 19 others were injured when the Nazi sympathizer plowed into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators. According to wikipedia, David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, politician, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, convicted felon, and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Some have suggested that the best way to fight back against all the hate being spread around by the Trump regime, the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, is by exposing the supporters of hate and violence, in the good old U.S.A. One place to start exposing the supporters of hate, would be to expose some of the local supporters of David Duke who reside in the Bay Area. David Duke ran for the U.S. Senate during 2016, from Mandeville, Louisiana, and lost. However, according to public records, Duke had a number of campaign contributors located locally here in the Bay Area. William Hubbel, of 1138 Skycrest Dr., in Walnut Creek is one of the proud supporters of David Duke during 2016, and according to records, he gave $500 to Dukes campaign. When I asked him about his support for David Duke, William Hubbel was very surprised, but said, In this era of communism as the noose is tightening around our necks, and we may be rounded up and shot in the back of the head, I decline to comment about my contribution to David Duke. I am not a member of the KKK, but I sure as hell am not a member of the Black Lives Matter movement either. Karen Ardith Woodbury, of 2720 35th Avenue, in San Francisco, is another proud supporter of David Duke, and she gave $250 to Dukes campaign during 2016. Once an attorney who no longer practices law, Karen Woodbury has a chiropractors license that expires in November of 2017. Karen Woodbury did not respond to my request for an interview regarding her support of David Duke. Other proud supporters of David Duke include: Jake Mavity, of 716 Haight St., in San Francisco, gave $600 to Dukes campaign during 2016. Brodin L. Sutherland, of 6604 Las Animas, Martinez, gave $500 to Dukes campaign during 2016. Roger Grigsby, of Santa Cruz, gave $500 to Dukes campaign in 2016. John Downey, of San Lorenzo, gave $285 to Dukes campaign during 2016. Kevin D. Barbaro, of 19035 Lowell Ave., of Hayward, gave $240 to Dukes campaign during 2016. And Michael Born, of 100 Humboldt, in Santa Rosa, gave $245 to Dukes campaign during 2016. As the fascist Trump regime spreads its message of hate by supporting the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists who brought bloodshed to the streets of Charlottesville recently, the Trump regime has targeted DreamHost, a web server, and has served a warrant in the effort to get the names and addresses of people that may have protested against Trumps inauguration last January, in Washington D.C. The attorneys of DreamHost have refused to turn over the information the fascist Trump regime wants, and DreamHost has responded with a blog claiming that “we fight for our users.” The hate monger groups spreading hate and violence across the nation are on the rise. Trump supporters, white supremacists, fascists, anti-semites, homophobes, bigots, and other hate mongers are uniting for a demonstration on August 27 called No To Marxism In America at Martin Luther King Jr, Civic Center Park, in downtown Berkeley. In addition to the Trump regime supporting the violence of the neo-Nazis, KKK, and white supremacists in Charlottesville lately, last February in response to protesters running Milo Yiannopoulous out of Berkeley when they objected to his racist campaign attacking sanctuary campuses, a GOP leader threatened Berkeley protesters, and promoted the idea of a Kent State massacre against the students and protesters in Berkeley.

Who is David Duke? Former KKK leader who attended Charlottesville riots and praised Donald Trump – The Sun

The conspiracy theorist denies the Holocaust ever happened and is also said to believe in racial segregation. FORMER KKK leader David Duke was back in the public eye after addressing supporters at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, which descended into anarchy. Here, we look at the Neo-Nazis background, what he said during the protest and comments he has made about US President Donald Trump. AP David Duke was the Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a chapter of the KKK, from 1974 to 1980. The 67-year-old, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, has reportedly been influenced by William Luther Pierce who lead the white separatist group National Alliance. The white nationalist has also been a member of the American Nazi party and is now a Republican. He was the Republican Louisiana State Representative from 1989 to 1992 and even a candidate in the Democratic Party presidential primaries in 1988. In November 2016, he failed to win a seat in the Senate in Louisiana. He denies the Holocaust in which Nazi Germany killed more than six million Jewish victims during World War Two. Central European News Duke is against what he believes to be the Jewish control of the Federal Reserve Bank, US federal government and the media. He is also said to believe in racial segregation. In 2003, Duke was sentenced to 15 months in prison for filing a false tax return and for a mail fraud. According toThe New York Times: Mr Duke was accused of telling supporters that he was in financial straits, then misusing the money they sent him from 1993 to 1999. Duke, who has lived in Russia for five years, has two daughters with his ex-wife Chloe Eleanor Hardin. He has praised WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Hes (Corbyn) been very, very strong, certainly more than any other person that I know of in politics in Britain, said Duke in June. Hes been against these insane Zionist wars, so the Zionists hate his guts. AFP or licensors He attended theprotest on Saturday August 12 at the removal of a statue of US Civil War Confederate General Robert E Lee. Violence erupted and a car driver ploughed into a crowd, killing Heather Hyer, 32, and injuring 19 others. A suspect James Alex Fields, 20, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failing to stop for an accident involving a death. While insisting he was not one of the organisers, Duke said he went to support young white Americans. In a video captured at the scene, he told white supremacists: This represents a turning point for the people of this country. We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfil the promises of Donald Trump. Thats what we believed in, thats why we voted for Donald Trump. Reuters After Trump controversially denounced alt-left supporters on Tuesday, he was praised on Twitter by Duke. Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville and condemn the leftist terrorists, wrote Duke. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Duke has urged his supporters to back Trump. When asked about this endorsement in February 2016, Trump said that he would disavow the backing. He then claimed in a CNN interview that he didnt know Duke, reported the Washington Post. In 2000, Trump bid to become the presidential nominee of the Reform Party of which Duke was then a member. But Trump withdrew his campaign because of party in-fighting and called Duke on NBC Today a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party.

Lanny Keller: Thank you, George H.W. Bush, for rejecting David … – The Advocate

In the chaotic days of David Duke’s meteoric political rise in Louisiana, President George H.W. Bush got conflicting advice. Sure, the said-to-be former Klansman was in a runoff for governor of Louisiana as a Republican, damaging the party, but the White House ought to stay out of a local race, in part because Duke’s opponent was the reprehensible Edwin W. Edwards. The Texan president knew Edwards well, and understood just what a bad choice Louisiana faced. But others, including William Bennett, one of the GOP’s intellectual lights, urged the president in 1991 that there was nothing to be done except speak for the nation as well as for the future of the Republican Party, in a rapidly changing America. In 1991, the nation watched as Louisiana residents chose between the klansman, David Duke, a The president made the right call, urging his friends in Louisiana to back Edwards. Today, maybe, that would be more difficult: Party lines are more calcified. But the moral lines are as clear as ever to the elderly ex-president. With his son, former President George W. Bush, he issued a statement in response to the Charlottesville, Virginia tragedy that “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism and hatred in all forms.” From Louisiana, thanks again, Mr. President.

David Duke’s website, hosted by service that dropped neo-Nazi site, back online after interruption – The Advocate

UPDATE, 12:40 p.m. Since this story was published David Duke’s website has come back online. It was not immediately clear what caused the service interruption. Check back for more. ORIGINAL STORY The longtime website of former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and former Louisiana elected official David Duke was down Thursday. Duke’s website, davidduke.com, was unavailable the day after the same company that serves as Dukes domain host, Cloudflare, shut down a neo-Nazi website, The Daily Stormer. Cloudflares chief executive officer, Matthew Prince, wrote an email saying he decided to drop The Daily Stormer following the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters on Saturday in Charlottesville. A presumed neo-Nazi sympathizer drove into a crowd of counter-protesters that left one woman dead and 19 people injured. Can’t see the video below? Click here. Davidduke.com serves as Dukes vehicle to get his message out unfiltered to his followers around the world. He broadcasts a one-hour internet radio show daily from the website and posts his writings and those of others. The website has allowed Duke to speak directly to his followers without going through what he calls the Jewish-controlled media. Duke did not immediately respond Thursday morning to a request from The Advocate for an interview on what happened to his website. As President Donald Trump faced a barrage of criticism over his comments on deadly violence On Wednesday, his website included four different articles on the events in Charlottesville, all of which defended the white supremacist rally and blasted the counter-protesters. The rally, which Duke attended, has thrust him back into the news. His statements in support of President Donald Trump have won him extensive coverage. Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa,” Duke tweeted after Trump said at a news conference on Tuesday that both white supremacists and counter-protesters were responsible for Saturdays violence. Dukes supportive comments have generated widespread criticism of Trump for not denouncing only the white supremacists. Duke had faded from public view after finishing seventh in the race for the U.S. Senate last year where he received only 3 percent of the vote. Duke, 67, served in the Louisiana state House from 1989-92 and has lost repeated races for higher political office in Louisiana. In 1991, his race for governor became a national story. He lost overall but won about 55 percent of the white vote. As President Donald Trump faced a barrage of criticism over his comments on deadly violence Check back for updates.
