David Duke — a white nationalist radio host, noted anti-Semite, failed 2016 Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard — praised reports that Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) will be nominated by President-elect Donald Trump to serve as attorney general. Duke also lauded Trump for naming Stephen Bannon to a senior White House role and picking Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to be National Security Advisor.

Duke wrote on Twitter, “Bannon, Flynn, Sessions — Great! Senate must demand that Sessions as AG stop the massive institutional race discrimination against whites!”

In 1986, Sessions was nominated to the federal bench, but rejected by the Senate Judiciary Committee due to multiple allegations of racism. As attorney general, Sessions would be in charge of enforcing federal civil rights laws.

Bannon, Trump’s selection for chief strategist, was executive chairman of Breitbart News, an “alt right” outlet that promotes white nationalist views. Flynn has tweeted anti-Semitic material (he later apologized) and has promoted the work of white nationalist “alt right” writer Mike Cernovich on social media. Duke also tweeted that Flynn was a “great pick!”

Trump’s entrance into politics has energized and emboldened the white nationalist movement and he has been the subject of frequent praise by Duke.

    Another ringing endorsement for Trump from an infamously abnormal person. The more Duke is allowed to show his affection for Trump and the GOP, the better insofar as making sure the stain on Trump and the GOP will be indelibly marked on their scroll.

  2. Race discrimination against whites? What a jaundiced mind David has.

    It’s good to have these endorsements for Trump from all the fringe groups pour in. The more the better, to mark Donald and the GOP with an indelible stain of Duke’s effrontery to the Reality of “The Oneness of Humankind” —an effrontery that won’t be erased.

    This sole affinity for a sub-section of humanity according to skin color is in violation of the Will of God. Abdu’l Baha expatiates on this core principle as clearly outlined by Baha’u’llah. Consider the following excerpt from a talk by Abdu’l Baha:

    ————————————————————————————————————

    “What is real unity? When we observe the human world we find various collective expressions of unity therein. For instance, man is distinguished from the animal by his degree or kingdom. This comprehensive distinction includes all the posterity of Adam and constitutes one great household or human family which may be considered the fundamental or physical unity of mankind. Furthermore, a distinction exists between various groups of humankind according to lineage, each group forming a racial unity separate from the others. There is also the unity of tongue among those who use the same language as a means of communication; national unity where various peoples live under one form of government such as French, German, British, etc.; and political unity which conserves the civil rights of parties or factions of the same government. All these unities are imaginary and without real foundation, for no real result proceeds from them. The purpose of true unity is real and divine outcomes. From these limited unities mentioned only limited outcomes proceed whereas unlimited unity produces unlimited result. For instance, from the limited unity of race or nationality the results at most are limited. It is like a family living alone and solitary; there are no unlimited or universal outcomes from it. …”

    “the massive institutional race discrimination against whites!” Can anyone explain what the hell this means? Could someone enumerate all these infractions? Personally I cannot think of any.

    For all of those who said Trump’s racist, white supremacist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic,homophobic,misogynistic, and violence inciting remarks were just rhetoric and part of his campaigning and Trump never believed in any of those things. They said he would never rule in the way he campaigned. What suckers they were. His appointees Bannon, Sessions, and Flynn prove Trump meant every hateful thing he said.

      I’m so embarrassed & angry at this alt right movement that I genuinely wish I wasn’t white. The pigmentation of a persons skin doesn’t define who they are. Character & attitude does & I will fight against this ugly racist movement. A lot of white people do not agree with the President Elect & this ugly rancor from the far right. Ones skin color should not give someone more rights over another. As Americans we should all be equals under the constitution. I will not sit idly by & watch the White hate movement intimidate & harass people they don’t think belong here. I for one will genuinely miss President Obama & only wish we couldn’t have reelected him for a 3rd term

    Jeff Sessions – the Federal Government Thief:

    ” retell the story of Russ Caswell, the businessman from Massachusetts who saw his motel confiscated by the feds because they thought people were doing drugs there.

    Mr. Caswell himself was charged with no crime… but he was at risk of losing a $1.5 million property that had been in in the family for two generations and that he owned free and clear.

    Caswell managed to hang onto his business, but only after a years-long court fight. But many other people aren’t nearly as lucky under the laws allowing for “civil asset forfeiture.”

    In 2015, Caswell testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about his ordeal. But one of the senators was unimpressed. As far as he was concerned, “taking and seizing and forfeiting, through a government judicial process, illegal gains from criminal enterprises is not wrong.”

    Again, Mr. Caswell was charged with no crime, much less convicted. How could he be running a “criminal enterprise”?

    No matter. The senator then pulled a number from his posterior, declaring “95%” of forfeitures are for people who have “done nothing in their lives but sell dope.”

    That senator was Jeff Sessions — chosen yesterday by President-elect Trump to be the new attorney general.”

    Jeff Sessions: liar and thief.
