The Rise Of The KKK In 1915 Is Shockingly Similar To Donald Trump In 2015

The KKK and far-right hate groups made the news again this week when former Grand Wizard David Duke spoke about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, and praised Trump as being “head and shoulders right now above the rest.” While it is important to note that David Duke claimed this wasn’t an endorsement of the Trump campaign, […]

GOP Rep. Steve King: I’m Just As Hispanic And Latino As Julián Castro

The Republican Party is having a very hard time attracting the Hispanic vote, and Donald Trump’s antics are only making it worse. This isn’t a new thing either as Republican politicians have made demonizing Hispanic immigrants a central theme of their campaigns, especially in deep red states where many industrial jobs have been moved to […]

Steve Scalise And The KKK: An Uncomfortable Match Made In Louisiana

The Steve Scalise story just keeps getting more and more interesting. It certainly hasn’t helped him that Kenny Knight, an admitted racist and close associate of David Duke, has tried to make excuses for him and say that Scalise didn’t speak to that Neo-Nazi conference in New Orleans back in 2002. By the way, this […]

Chris Matthews Absolutely Crushes Racism within the Tea Party (Video)

I think it’s safe to say that most people on the left believe that there’s a large part of the Republican party that’s driven by racism.

Is David Duke Now Calling The Shots In The Republican Party?

This is the new low that the Republican Party has found itself at, taking the word of a known white supremacist leader over the word of the House Majority Whip, who admitted to speaking to a Klan/white power conference back in 2002. A little over a week ago, my friend Lamar White Jr released his […]

Chaos Ensues as Bill O’Reilly Brings David Duke on Fox News (Video)

By now, most people who follow politics have heard about the scandal involving House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and a speech he gave at an event sponsored by white supremacists in 2002. Now, you would think that the third most powerful person in the House being busted speaking at an event promoting white supremacy would, […]

In The New Year, Could Republicans Be Just A Little Less Ridiculous?

Well, wombats, here we are. New Year’s Eve day, the last day of 2014, the last day of what has been one of the most tumultuous years in recent memory. Other than 2013, of course, and 2012, and…oh who am I kidding, the entire first part of the 21st century has been bizarre. But you have […]

Grand Wizard David Duke and Today’s GOP — The Similarities are Startling

From the 1970’s to the 1990’s, David Duke, a prominent member of the Ku Klux Klan and barely unsuccessful Southern politician who ran for governor, US senator, and president in the early 90s, made many attempts to demystify and destigmatize uber-racism. He changed the name of the Grand Wizard position he held to “National Director,” […]
