David Duke gets crazier and crazier during this clip. You won’t believe it. Bizarre Interview: O’Reilly Hosts Former KKK Leader David Duke to Defend GOP Rep. for Speaking to White Supremacist Group.
One of David Duke’s right hand haters, Kenny Knight, is now trying to run interference for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise with a story that Scalise didn’t actually attend that white supremacist conference after all. Knight says it was pure coincidence; Scalise just happened to give a speech at the same hotel and conference hall, but it really had nothing to do with all those white supremacists.
Kenny Knight is a longtime associate of David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan who ran for governor of Louisiana in 1991. He’s been a key player in news that broke on Sunday that indicated Scalise addressed the white supremacist convention of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization when he was a Louisiana state representative in May 2002.
Knight said on Tuesday that it’s “totally incorrect” to say Scalise spoke at that convention.
“He spoke early in the day to a contingent of people, prior to the conference kicking off,” Knight said. “He was not there as a guest speaker at the conference.”
Hey, it could happen to anybody; you’re just giving an innocuous speech about puppies and kitties, and suddenly you’re surrounded by white supremacists.
Problem is, Scalise has already acknowledged he spoke at the hate conference, and David Duke has stated that Scalise was invited to it; and even if there were any truth to white supremacist Kenny Knight’s tale, it’s impossible to believe Scalise didn’t know what was going on at that conference: White Supremacist Banners, Racist Talks at Later Events of Group Steve Scalise Previously Addressed, Civil Rights Group Says.
Banners proclaiming “White Power” and “White Pride Worldwide” plastered the walls, and speakers gave racist speeches at later conferences in Kenner of a white supremacist organization that U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise says he had addressed in Metairie in 2002, an investigator with the Southern Poverty Law Center civil rights group said Tuesday.
The law center didn’t have an investigator at the 2002 conference of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization at which Scalise has acknowledged that he spoke. But Heidi Beirich, director of the center’s “Intelligence Project,” said EURO events she attended in 2004 and 2005 in Kenner left no doubt about the group’s racist agenda.
“The conferences were a full day of people giving speeches representing the worst in racism or anti-Semitism,” said Beirich.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is doing some frantic damage control after it emerged on Sunday that he spoke at a white supremacist conference hosted by the infamous David Duke. The New Orleans Times-Picayune has an interview with Scalise: Steve Scalise: ‘I Detest Any Kind of Hate Group’.
In an exclusive interview Monday with nola.com | The Times-Picayune about the growing controversy over his appearance at the Metairie event, Scalise said it is ridiculous to suggest he was involved with the group, which was created by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
“I didn’t know who all of these groups were and I detest any kind of hate group. For anyone to suggest that I was involved with a group like that is insulting and ludicrous,” Scalise said.
Is Steve Scalise a racist? There’s no way for anyone to know what’s in his heart, but that’s really not the issue. The question is whether Steve Scalise lends the support of his office to white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the KKK, and it’s clear that he does. For whatever reason.
This also reveals how deeply the Republican Party is embedded with racists and white supremacist groups, and now David Duke is threatening to out the politicians he’s connected to, if the GOP sanctions Scalise: David Duke: Focus on Me and House GOP Leader Is ‘Insane’.
Overall, Duke was rather flabbergasted by the new focus on Scalise. He said he has hosted both Democratic and Republican legislators at everything from conferences to his children’s birthday parties. He said he has met with Democratic legislators at least 50 times in his political life.
And he delivered a warning to both Republicans and Democrats: Treat Scalise fairly, and don’t try to make political hay out of the situation. Or he said he would be inclined to release a list of names of all the politicians — both Republicans and Democrats — with whom he has ties.
“If Scalise is going to be crucified — if Republicans want to throw Steve Scalise to the woods, then a lot of them better be looking over their shoulders,” Duke said.
The always disgusting hate group leader Pamela Geller has suffered a setback in her campaign to demonize all Muslims, as the family of James Foley (one of the journalists murdered by ISIS) strongly objects to Geller’s use of their son’s image in her ugly NYC subway advertisements, forcing her to pull those ads: Anti-Islamic Ads Depicting American Journalist James Foley Moments Before Death Pulled in NYC.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) - A group running a series of anti-Islamic ads in New York City’s transit system is pulling an ad that shows James Foley with the masked militant who killed him.
The ad, which depicts Foley moments before he is beheaded, is being yanked after criticism from the American journalist’s family.
The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative run by anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller, whose attorney said the Foley family was notified that the ads were being pulled.
Attorney David Yerushalmi said he wrote their lawyer that “Geller understands and feels intimately the pain” they are suffering.
And that of course, is a pathetically obvious lie; Geller fully intended to exploit the image of their son to spread her hateful agenda, and she obviously did not care about anyone’s pain or suffering. This is what Geller and her cronies do.
British tabloid The Daily Mail has more details:
In his letter, the lawyer asked on behalf of James Foley’s family to withdraw the ad and stop using it.
‘Having lived in and reported from communities in which nearly everyone as of Muslim faith, he had great respect for the religion and those who practiced it.
‘The advertisement you are preparing to run seems to convey the message that ordinary practitioners of Islam are a dangerous threat.
‘This message is entirely inconsistent with Mr Foley’s reporting and his beliefs.’
Mr Rowan concluded his letter by warning the organization that using James Foley’s image to draw funding and attention to the AFDI will cause his family ‘profound distress.’
Nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by active users of the leading racist website, Stormfront, according to a report released today by the SPLC’s Intelligence Project.
Registered Stormfront users have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most lethal hate crimes and mass killings since the web forum became the first hate site on the Internet in 1995, a month before the Oklahoma City bombing. The report found that hate killings by Stormfront members began to accelerate rapidly in early 2009, when Barack Obama took office as the nation’s first black president.
A similar racist web forum, Vanguard News Network (VNN), was used by neo-Nazi and former Klan leader Frazier Glenn Miller, who has been charged with the Sunday murder of three people he mistakenly believed were Jews in Overland Park, Kan. Miller, who apparently changed his last name in recent years to Cross, logged more than 12,000 posts on VNN, whose slogan is, “No Jews, Just Right.”
“Stormfront is the murder capital of the racist Internet,” said Heidi Beirich, report author and Intelligence Project director. “It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged. And VNN is almost as bad.”
One of the most horrible, hateful people in the United States is reportedly “on the edge of death.”
The estranged son of the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church said his father is “on the edge of death.”
Fred Phelps Sr. became famous for organizing picket lines of brightly-colored signs carrying hateful messages against tolerance during the funerals of military personnel and famous figures. His actions led to at least two federal and several state laws restricting protests during military funerals.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Nathan Phelps, who has been estranged from his father for 30 years, said the senior Phelps was dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kan., and that he had been ex-communicated from his own church in August of 2013.
“I’m not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made,” Nathan Phelps wrote.
Retired Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin is now the executive vice president of the far right Family Research Council, and he gave a humdinger of a speech recently in Dallas for an audience of Republican lawmakers, telling them that Jesus is coming back, and this time he’ll be packing serious heat.
“[Jesus is] coming back as a warrior, carrying a sword,” Boykin said. “And I believe now, I’ve checked this out — I believe that sword he’ll be carryin’ when he comes back is an AR-15.”
Many in the audience laughed and some applauded, according to audio of the speech released Tuesday.
“Now I want you to think about this: Where did the 2nd Amendment come from? Where did the 2nd Amendment come from? I ask my students this; I ask men’s groups. I ask, ‘Where did the 2nd Amendment come from?’”
Boykin, in a somewhat comic voice, replied: ” ‘From the Founding Fathers! It’s in the Constitution!’
“Well, yeah, I know that. But where did the whole concept come from? It came from Jesus.”
An influential figure in the Republican Party, folks.
Right Wing Watch notices today that in his latest column for the National Review, Center for Immigration Studies director Mark Krikorian is openly citing infamous white nationalist Sam Francis: Krikorian Cites White Nationalist in Anti-Reform Pitch.
In his latest column for the National Review Online, Krikorian responds to a New York Times report this weekend that President Obama’s DACA order has created a backlog of immediate family members of U.S. citizens who are now separated from their families as they wait an unconscionably long time for visas.
Krikorian, of course, sees this not as an administrative failure that might be fixed by White House attention or a comprehensive immigration reform package, but as an indictment of the very concept of immigration reform. To back up his case, he cites a term, “anarcho-tyranny,” coined by white nationalist Sam Francis in his fight against multiculturalism and ” the transformation of American society by millions of aliens .”
“I wasn’t a fan of Sam Francis,” Krikorian writes, “but his concept of ’ anarcho-tyranny’ describes this perfectly.”
We’re glad to learn that Krikorian “wasn’t a fan” of Francis, who edited a white supremacist journal and wanted to seal the border and impose “fertility controls on nonwhites.”
Lovely. This is like saying, “I wasn’t a fan of Hitler, but he did have a way with words.”
And of course, this is far from the first time white nationalists have appeared in the pages of National Review:
National Review’s John Derbyshire Publishes Stunningly Racist Article at White Nationalist Site
National Review Writer Robert Weissberg Attends White Nationalist Gathering
Yes, Another White Nationalist at National Review
This woman is pure evil.
Pamela Geller is telling her fellow anti-Muslim activists to convince Congress to reject a resolution “urging the Government of Burma to end the persecution of the Rohingya people and respect internationally recognized human rights for all ethnic and religious minority groups within Burma.”
The Rohingya minority have faced vicious persecution in Burma, but Geller accuses them of “waging jihad in Burma.”
Various human rights groups and media outlets, along with groups from the Heritage Foundation to the Brookings Institute, have described the persecution of the Rohingya in Burma as ethnic cleansing.
But not Geller.
She claims that the Rohingya are to blame for the atrocities against them because of a bombing at a Buddhist shrine in India by the Islamic extremist Indian Mujahideen, and is demanding activists stop the resolution from turning into a “battering ram to impose Islam on small, defenseless countries.”
Anytime Buddhist monks have to carry guns for self-defense, it’s a good bet that the Religion of Peace is involved.
Muslims are waging jihad in Burma. But the Buddhists aren’t having it. Muslim Brotherhood groups in the US are agitating for UN intervention. Scroll and read Hamas-CAIR’s call for support of US resolution 418 calling for intervention. Please contact your Congressmen and Senators and tell them to VOTE NO on resolution 418. We have seen this before. It led to President Clinton sending US troops to fight for the Bosnian Muslims against the Christian Serbs, leading to the establishment of the first Islamic state in Europe (Kosovo).
Support the Buddhists in Burma. Seriously. Do this. I am in Boston, as our free speech lawsuit is being heard today, but I will be working the phones, and so should you. Burma is 90% Buddhist. These are a peaceful people. The Muslims have brought war to Burma. Bodh Gaya, the holiest site for the Buddhists the world over, was bombed in a series of Islamic terror attacks. Hamas-CAIR must be stopped from using the most powerful government in the world as its battering ram to impose Islam on small, defenseless countries.

Speaking yesterday with a caller who identified himself as a “non-practicing homosexual,” Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association reaffirmed his belief that homosexuality “is a matter of choice.” When the caller asked if Fischer “could have sex with a man,” Fischer was flummoxed and said he would never even begin to think about having gay sex.
