Both the most influential histrica figure of the group as its current ‘leader’ have expressed their satisfaction with Trump
After the first black president in US history, will come one backed by the Ku Klux Klan? Donald Trump is unstoppable on his way to the Republican nomination. The last survey of the television chain CNN gives a brutal backing of 49% compared to 16% of Marco Rubio -the last hope of the leaders of the party, 15% and 10% of candidates ‘religious right’, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson , respectively, and 6% of the centrist John Kasich . On Tuesday, the Republican Party holds its primaries in 12 states. In 11 of them, Trump as favorites. Only in Texas it seems destined to lose. And to despair of the Republican leadership, at the hands of Ted Cruz.
Now, Trump has gained the support of a condemned to ostracism in the US political group for half a century: the Ku Klux Klan. Both histrica most influential figure in that group, as its current ‘leader’ have expressed, if not all their support, their satisfaction with s Donald Trump.
On Wednesday last week, David Duke , former Mago (ie leader) of the Ku Klux Klan (known by its acronym KKK or simply “the Klan”), former political leader in Louisiana, and, above all, the most famous US white supremacist, apoy Trump in his campaign for the white House.
“Vote for these people [referring to the other Republican candidates], vote against Donald Trump now is a real betrayal to your origins,” Duke said on his online radio, broadcast to through the website Jeff Rense and includes a catalog of stars of the waves let the characters ‘Muchachada Nui’ as mere apprentices art absurdity if it were not among the theories that defend est , for instance, that the killing Newtown school in Connecticut, where 20 children of 5 and 6 years were killed in 2012, or at a more large scale, the Holocaust never occurred.
On Thursday, Duke tried to argue his decision in a ‘post’ in which basically attacked “the supremacism of the Jews” in the media and on Wall Street (apparently did not realize that I was hanging that message without being censored in a company called Facebook, owned by a judo called Mark Zuckerberg married to an American of asitico origin, and directed by another juda called Sheryl Sandberg ).
Then, Trump the mess. On Friday, the entrepreneur become leader of the Republican race for the White House desembaraz racist. “He asked David Duke vote for me? Okay, I reject your support,” he said, when asked by the media on Friday in Texas, where he was holding a press conference
But on Sunday, he gave reverse gear. In an interview with the chain of television CNN, the candidate was asked by journalist Jack Tapper if “condemns in unequivocal” the policies positions Duke, which the web of Rense proclaims that, in his 12 years in politics, won “60% of the vote of European origin” (ie, excluding blacks, Hispanics, and Asians) in its circunscripcin in Louisiana. The businessman replied: “Let’s see if I understand, there s no David Duke, right?” Trump neg three times meet Duke, just the person from whom he had distanced 48 hours earlier.
That ignorance is paradoxical, because in 2000 the Reform Party – A formation created by another populist billionaire, Ross Perto , which in 1992 arruin the reelection of George Bush ‘senior’ – Trump had offered the position of candidate for the White House and ste it had rejected precisely because Duke was in that training. “It is company with which wanted to be,” Trump wrote in an article Opinion in The New York Tmonth ‘.
Thrice neg Trump Duke. As San Pedro Jesus Christ in the Gospel. And then the cock cant. He did so in the form of more controversy and an accusation of Marco Rubio – second or third in the polls for the Republican nomination – qualifying Trump “ineligible” after receiving the support of Duke.
As today Donald Trump has again reverse gear. Blame it said on Sunday is obviously the press. In this case, a technical failure. The ‘pinganillo’ (lase the handset) that CNN had given him for the interview Trump Sunday did not work well. The man answered haphazardly.
“I was in a house in Florida, with a very bad handset. Almost no pruning or what deca. Or several groups. I have no problem to reject Duke. He had rejected the day before,” he said this morning Trump NBC television chain.
is what pas Reverend Pat Robertson when his colleague Jerry Falwell said in his television program that 11-S had been a punishment from God for rampant homosexuality in the US. “I agree,” Robertson said. When the polemics is mess (why God castig homosexuals flying the twin towers and the pentagon, instead of Chelsea and Dupont Circle, who are gay neighborhoods in New York and Washington, respectively?), Robertson limit to explain that all had been due to a problem with your headphones. As that Falwell was doomed to public ostracism, and Robertson kept his string of television and its university. Last week, Robertson apoy Donald Trump, who, as everyone knows, is a person of an exemplary Christian life.
But the ambiguity of Trump – quin can imagine the candidate who says things clear answering questions that could not hear well? – It is not shared by the Ku Klux Klan. The newspaper ‘The Washington Post’ published Monday an interview with Rachel Pendergraft , the national coordinator of the Partido de los Caballeros, ie, the Ku Klux Klan, and a member of a family with a wide racist tradition that He is also inculcating the generations . In it, Pendergraft explains that Trump is helping his movement to spread their message, and the ‘Knights of the Klan’ and their sympathizers “like that [Trump] do not try to give reverse gear. It says what they believe and their positions are maintained. “
