David Duke is putting himself back in the news. He’s even telling The Washington Post what he thinks, though it’s unclear whether or not they had actually wondered in the first place.
Not surprisingly, Duke’s indignant at the Republican Party for electing a black man as their chairman. Quoting (bold mine):
To Hell with the Republican Party!
GOP traitors appoint Obama Junior as Chairman of the Republican Party
I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, “To Hell With the Republican Party!” And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!I think the insanity of nominating “Mr. Amnesty” John McCain and now this Black racist – will lead to insurgency in the Republican ranks, and a lot of dissidents getting elected in Republican Party primaries around the country. This will result over the next four years a real move by millions of Republicans to take the party back to the populist issues that are not only right but can win for the Republican Party. We must end affirmative action, protect our gun rights and all our constitutional rights, have a moratorium on immigration, we must have protectionism, yes I said protect American businesses and their workers from NAFTA and GATT and the lie of free trade, and we must have America First, not foreign interventionism. Our boys should be home protecting the American borders a not being murdered on the borders of Iraq or Afghanistan. The time as come for Republican Party to stand up to Obama and defend American heritage, rights, and freedom!
…Let’s make this abomination in the Republican Party, the last major party of White redoubt, as a rallying cry of resistance!
The simple fact that less than 20 years ago David Duke represented the candidate of a party now led by Bobby Jindal is astounding. But, as much as we would all like to forget and move on, it’s equally important to remember that, less than twenty years ago, David Duke was the Republican candidate for governor in Louisiana, the standard-bearer. He’s not exactly ancient history. Duke is only 58 years old.
