Donald Trump and the Bigot Wizard
For weeks Donald Trump has been flirting with fascism. And teetering on the edge of the Pit of Depravity.
By retweeting material from white supremacists.
In a desperate effort to flatter them, and pander to his bigot base.
And now it seems he has stumbled into the pit or the sewer, and into the arms of the Ku Klux Klan.
Donald Trump stumbled into a racially charged controversy Sunday, saying in an interview on CNN that he didn't know enough to disavow former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke.
Claiming he doesn't know anything about white supremacists, even though he used to sleep with the speeches of Adolf Hitler on his bedside table.
And claiming he never heard of the former bigot wizard. Only to be exposed as a liar.
Despite what he said Sunday, Trump apparently did know Duke in 2000 -- citing him, as well as Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani -- in a statement that year explaining why he had decided to end his brief flirtation with a Reform Party presidential campaign.
"The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This is not company I wish to keep," Trump said in a statement reported then by The New York Times.
And leaving us to wonder whether this bromance with white supremacists is being dictated by the voices in his swollen head.
Or whether it has something to do with this Klan parade in New York City.
In 1927, Klansmen planned their first open parade, in Jamaica, Queens. Alerted to the plan by the editor of a Catholic paper, the police commissioner issued an order against wearing Klan regalia. The Klan defied that order, appearing clad in white robes and hoods in a Memorial Day parade.
And his father's arrest.
According to a New York Times article published in June 1927, a man with the name and address of Donald Trump's father was arraigned after Klan members attacked cops in Queens, N.Y.
In an article subtitled "Klan assails policeman", Fred Trump is named in among those taken in during a late May "battle" in which "1,000 Klansmen and 100 policemen staged a free-for-all."
Because goodness knows a man raised by that kind of father, who gets endorsed by a scummy fascist like Jean-Marie Le Pen...
"If I was an American I would vote for Donald Trump. But may God protect him !"
Really is capable of ANYTHING.
And I think this tweet by Bernie Sanders...
Which was retweeted by Hillary Clinton...
Speaks for all decent people in the United States and all over the world.
Donald Trump is either a dangerous fascist, or a maniac. Or both.
And he must and will be defeated...
