Gimme one second…
HAAAA HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA HAAA HAHAHAHAHAHAA ha. ha.
David Duke has blown several gaskets over the selection of Michael Steele as new RNC Chair. In a post on his site titled “GOP traitors appoint Black racist as Chairman of the Republican Party” here’s what the former Klansman says
Steele is a passionate supporter of affirmative action programs that racially discriminate against tens of millions of White Americans. He also supports increased discrimination against White owned businesses in the awarding of non-merit and non-bid minority contracts. He is opposed to the death penalty and thinks that it is disproportionately applied to Blacks even though it is applied to White murderers at 500 percent higher than it is to Black murderers. He is also an advocate of more gun control legislation as well as a draconian, massively increased enforcement of the current laws. He is a servile dog of Israel and has condemned Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorists and yet said not a word of compassion for the 5,000 (half of them women and children) who have been maimed and murdered in Gaza by Israel’s weapons of mass destruction. He says that he would still support the Iraq War and the loss of 50,000 maimed Americans, 4500 killed and trillions in cost, even though the reason for the war (Weapons of Mass Destruction) was proven to be a lie.
When a reporter for the Washington Post interviewed me on the appointment, this is what I said:
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!
What are the race-baiting, ignorant McCain/Palin mobs going to do now that its party is being headed up by a black man? Perhaps a better question is whether the Steele and the GOP will try to salvage this ignorant base of voters that they’ve depended on since the Southern Strategy of Nixon? GOP strategists are so used to using color-aroused campaign tactics that it’s second nature; will the party be able to cure its addiction to racism and xenophobia?
This will be so interesting to watch. What will Duke and the people yelling “terrorist” at McCain/Palin rallies do? Where is the party of the white supremacist? I really feel for the Republicans, and if you thought Obama had a tough job representing the United States, don’t forget about poor michale Steele who has to contend with the David Duke wing of the party he now leads. Congratulations, Mike!
