Charles Barron loses Democratic Primary
David Duke endorses Charles Barron
City Councilman Charles Barron, vying for a seat in Congress, picked up a bizarre - and potentially toxic - endorsement Thursday from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Duke, who was once Grand Wizard of the KKK, released a web video in which he spewed anti-Semitic bile while heaping praise on the radical Brooklyn Councilman.
“The possible election of [Barron], a dedicated anti-Zionist to the U.S. Congress, has thrown the Zionist-influenced media and the Zio-political establishment in a tizzy,” said Duke, who made an infamous bid for the White House in 1992.
Barron, a former member of the Black Panthers, has unquestionably made statements in the past that some consider inflammatory, including dubbing dictators Moammar Gadhafi and Robert Mugabe his ‘heroes’ and comparing the Israeli government to the Nazis.
