David Duke, a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and self-described “racial realist,” has thrown his support behind Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump because he “understands the real sentiment of America.”
“I praise the fact that he’s come out on the immigration issue. I’m beginning to get the idea that he’s a good salesman. That he’s an entrepreneur and he has a good sense of what people want to hear what they want to buy,” said Duke on his radio program last week, Buzzfeed reports.
“And I think he realizes that his path to popularity toward power in the Republican Party is talking about the immigration issue. And he has really said some incredibly great things recently. So whatever his motivation, I don’t give a damn,” the infamous racist said. “I really like the fact that he’s speaking out on this greatest immediate threat to the American people.”
“I’ve said from the beginning I think his campaign is good in the sense that it’s bringing these issues to a discussion which we have to have in America. And he’s continuing to move the envelope further and I think he understands the real sentiment of America,” Duke went on to say.

“Trump, he’s really going all out. He’s saying what no other Republicans have said, few conservatives say. And he’s also gone to point where he says it’s not just illegal immigration, it’s legal immigration,” Duke said.
“So this is a great opportunity,” Duke said. “So although we can’t trust him to do what he says, the other Republican candidates won’t even say what he says. So he’s certainly the best of the lot. And he’s certainly somebody that we should get behind in terms, ya know, raising the image of this thing.”
We’ve noted several times already that white supremacists are flocking to Donald Trump. A popular Neo-Nazi site has endorsed the Republican candidate. ‘White power’ was shouted out multiple times during his speech in Alabama.
A suspect in a vicious hate crime said he was inspired by Donald Trump.
A white supremacist wants to take over a town and name it in Trump’s honor.
Trump’s slogan ‘Make America great again’ is unnerving. This country has has always been ‘great’. The outrage would be deafening from Conservatives if that was Hillary or Bernie’s slogan.
Be sure to give us some ‘like’ on Facebook.
