It appears as though the former Louisiana state senator and White Supremacists David Duke has now decided to go back to his roots and start endorsing candidates from the party who gave birth to the KKK, the Democrat Party.
Here is more via Newsweek:
“Duke, who was head of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s, posted a set of tweets endorsing Gabbard’s 2020 presidential run and changed the background of his Twitter account Monday, which boasts more than 50,000 followers. A “Tulsi Gabbard for President” banner features the banner tagline, “Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!”
Duke also endorsed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, although the then-Republican candidate Trump denied any knowledge of the former KKK Grand Wizard in a March 2016 interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. Duke again lauded Trump’s presidency following the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia rally in which Trump claimed there were decent people on “both sides.”
Gabbard has received fairly supportive coverage from pro-Israel and Jewish media publications despite her mild criticism of Israel during last May’s border crisis in Gaza. She was highly touted by pro-Israel lobbyists and U.S. conservatives after criticizing former President Barack Obama for refusing to use the phrase “radical Islamic terror” during his tenure.
“Tulsi Gabbard is currently the only Presidential candidate who doesn’t want to send White children off to die for Israel,” Duke tweeted Monday evening in a now-pinned post showing a picture of Gabbard meeting with a U.S. military member and his child in a hangar. However, Gabbard is not mentioned once in The New York Times article Duke shared about the president calling to keep U.S. troops in Iraq to “watch Iran.”
In all fairness to Senator Gabbard, unlike most Democrats during the Barack Hussein Obama administration, she actually attended Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial March 2015 speech to Congress where he told the world what the Obama Administration was up to and how anti-Isreal they really were. But either way, it’s great to see a KKK member going back to his roots. Don’t you agree?
