"david duke" Discussed on High Noon
"Yeah, I think the Tom Snyder is a really good example of. The arrogance of a lot of media around these issues because I think there can be inflation where people think that because somebody's views or so wrong. And so evil, that means that we can beat them in a debate. When that person's been. Thinking about this stuff and preparing for their entire life, and maybe you as Tom, Snyder. Like the day before you interviewed. I mentioned one guest the it was like a blind man who opponent pornography censor I mean like this guy was not prepared to deal with David, Duke, and so I think a lesson there is that if you choose to give somebody like this a platform, you need to know what you're doing. You need to understand the gravity of that and you need to be prepared and I think there are some instances of of media. who were prepared for Duke and who treated him a lot differently than than Snyder did. And so I think he was a creation of the media, certainly in the seventies and I think it's a harder question. The debates that emerged in the late eighties and early nineties, Alec if we cover this guy, are we giving him oxygen, or is he just a really big threat and it would be responsible all. Of us to dig in and do a lot of reporting right fast. We have some audio from this and a bit of a sports tie in This is College Temple Junior, who is his son? Garrett? Temple plays in the NBA plays for the nets, but he was the first black player at Lsu in basketball, which did not happen. It's on one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one that surprising for me to find out looking it up as guys the here. Junior. Talk about David Duke Experience Collis was seventeen years old when he moved into the athletes dormitory. He lived with more than one hundred young white men. There were tense times when I was around. These guys because they weren't feeling comfortable with me and I knew that the majority guys weren't necessarily incident being there. Some of them are social outlet candidly in terms of who communicated with the most. Were actually people cleaned up the dorm that I lay of then the janitors. And the people cooked. Temple, also spend time hanging out with other black undergrads at lsu student. Union. To get there, he had to walk past campus hotspot. Free speech was USA. Identifiable area where people just got up and expressed how they felt and people talked about. Some of everything all the social ills throughout this country. Students at free speech alley spouted off about the dress code at Lsu, which forbade women from wearing pants. They got fired up about President Nixon in the Vietnam War and they argued about civil rights. There was one student David Duke. Who was always shouting about the dangers of immigration? He'd be out there talking about why Jews and Didn't that. Be a part of our society as basically what it came down to. Stop and listen. Stopping listen. And tell him he was fully. That's a lot. Yeah. And I was really glad to be able to feature calls Temple Junior. WHO's a really incredible guy and somebody whose? Life Story and his story at Lsu kind of. Exposed just by juxtaposition. The absurdity of dukes claim that it was white. People are the ones who are really being discriminated against. When you look at them next to each other, you can see how absurd that is. All right now last thing I want to ask you why we got you at I'm going to be very difficult to do I understand, but I want you to give it the old college try. Can you try to describe our man? Harry Lee in one cents. I'll give you two very powerful chinese-american Sheriff who claimed he couldn't be racist because he was Chinese A. Right-wing about way leans in on the notion of the sheriff is the most powerful man anywhere that there is I never heard anybody talk about himself. Be Allowed order the way to here. He talked about it here. A guy who financed a Mardi gras float that had the design was his face and would go on the float. Every Mardi Gras and throw dolls himself to the adoring crowd, so somebody with no shortage of ego, but who, in these New Orleans suburbs where the? Dukes base was. Was a guy who kind of enforced. This idea of you know I'm. GonNa make this place, comfortable and safe for white people and he was a very important. Figure to understanding that environment I listen to podcasts typically on one and a half speed, and I gotta go back and listen to that episode because I need to hear that man talk. Like a you, you put all of those things together I. Need to hear that man. Yeah one of many fascinating figures and slow-burn season for. Right, so you guys are still working on the project. It's great so far right so I. Guess we're going to. How far into Dukes journey are you going to go with the last three episodes? So I'm going to go through the governor's race and ninety one and I think it's you know my preference with projects like the and with the first three seasons of slow-burn burn is to really inhabit that particular period of time and not really carry it forward. Into, what's happening now? Just because I think one of the. Kind of central precepts of of the show is that we don't know how stuff is. Get end up when we're living through what the consequences are going to be and I think you know I find more powerful just as a listener or reader F. you're trusting the audience to kind of draw the lines and make the connections themselves rather than me coming on at that and being like look at what's happening now you know like. Can you see it? Is a Jazz Levin Checkout. Slow Burn. This season is on David Duke in his political career. Please check that out I'm three episodes in. Check it out.

White Nationalism in the White House: Katie McHugh Kept Receipts
"It's no secret that members of the trump administration up to and including trump himself are parroting the views of white nationalist and white extremist groups. These organizations are tied into outright media outlets like Breitbart and others where they spread this propaganda to the masses. We're going to try something a little different today. I'll be joined by a guest. Co Host. Hossan Ahmad is an immigration attorney and anti white nationalist activist from Virginia. Hossan has been deeply involved in obtaining the archived writings of John. Panton one of the men. Behind the current white nationalist movement in America Hossan connected me to Katie McHugh. Katie is a former white nationalist. Who has renounced her views in his working. Hard to undo the damage. She did when she held them. She's a former staffer for Breitbart and other alt-right media where she was in constant correspondence with Stephen Miller at the trump white house. She's exposed those emails and the deep ties of Miller into the white nationalist movement in America voice box he's overlap between trump's message white nationalist ideology he has shown us that the majority of Americans support are sort of message. You know what yeah make. America great again fell the wall. Pick these people out. This is my country. This this all belongs to me. Trump demurred when asked whether he'd condemned supportive comments from former Ku Klux Klan. Leader David Duke. I have to look at the group I mean. I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know. The person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters. Your leader downtown Charlottesville very fine people on both sides so we just got a new batch of emails from Breitbart reporter Katya Q. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made public excerpts of emails sent by White House. Senior adviser. Stephen Miller was a key figure shaping immigration policy or president trump the email messages for fifty thousand sixteen. Show Miller support white nationalist website and ideologies. My name is Katie mccue. I've exposed eight far-right extremists in the past fifteen months by working with civil rights groups and legendary nonprofits. I'm very excited now. In the stage of my life to help the most vulnerable in society including people of Color immigrants those who practice Islamic faith and those who this car presidential administration opposes the mouse and seeks to punish through use of authoritarian policies. Sorry Not Sorry so katy you spent a bit of time in the alright. What is the difference if you can explain to US between the alright a white supremacy and white nationalism? What are some of the core beliefs that you're aware of as part of this movement? Well I can say I think we should begin with aristotle here. I don't want to sound pretentious but everything is on a trajectory this is also just basic calculus so one of the things. Aristotle spoke about was habit and one thing you witness with the outright because the media treated them as a truly humorous force that's just online and it's backing Donald Trump and it's young people. The fact is everything that they said. Ironically I'm making air quotes eventually became ironic so whenever people thought they were quote unquote trolling about saying the nineteenth amendment should be repealed and you had white supremacist media figure. Richard Spencer eventually meeting. No I don't believe women should have the right to vote all these memes and things you see on twitter and the way that these mobs were organized so much so that they became. It was almost like blunt force trauma when it came to harassment for media figures. They were not joking. And in the case too with someone like Stephen Miller who's one of the most powerful people in the US government especially when it comes to people who are not white. So who is Stephen Miller? And why is it so important that we understand his thinking? Stephen Miller is one of the closest advisers to president trump. He is the architect of trump's immigration policy and also has the president's ear on foreign policy matters. Stephen Miller for his entire career had anti immigrant. Leanings for some people philly with the alright because it's an amorphous group and doesn't have a membership roll with you. Know I mean. They viewed on white people and people who practice the Islamic faith as not only dangerous individuals but an existential threat to the country. And this does tie into eugenics which unfortunately America has a very dark history with eugenics Ray Science and a history which John drew from and help shape the anti immigrant agenda that has sought renewed energy from the emergence of the outright and renewed energy from the trump campaign and which we now see the full force turned against the most desperate vulnerable people in the world for punish purely because of their country of origin their ethnicity in the face that they practice kitty. You seem so articulate and passionate and human and when we paint these pictures are head of the other side we sort of create these villains. I think I WANNA be respectful for your privacy and safety but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you got caught up in the movement so that we can have a better understanding as to how other people get caught up in the movement. Thank you for asking that because I think that everyone's path is different but buying could help explain some of the groundwork for other young people currently trapped in this. Who Don't quite know how to get out. The outright on the far-right are very much like a gang. You know there's a no snitching policy and I think that many many young people especially let's say trump does not win reelection in twenty twenty this year. A lot of young people are going to wonder. How do I get out of this? And how do I reconnect with other people again and have a healthy loving life full of good friendships? Good connections across backgrounds. So I will just say that I'm from Pennsylvania regular conservative town and I was raised like I think the joke is. You're born a lapsed Catholic. So that was my upbringing. Regular childhood must very nerdy was constantly reading and I was politically inclined. People always talk about two thousand four election. People were very excited about George W Bush. Because it's a Red County and two thousand eight of course with the banking crisis. Things got much more serious and of course the Iraq war still going on so I was chatting with one of my best friends. Her Dad and I was regular Republican fully supporting the Iraq war in in the war in Afghanistan and he said well. Why don't you read this person named Joe So brand? Joseph O'Brien was a former senior editor for national review. He was fired by William F Buckley because he could not control his anti-semitism. I ate him alive. Almost like a neurological virus and I'm eighteen. I had never met someone of poop practice. Jewish faith Jewish background nothing. I didn't understand anti-semitism and I was reading the Essay. That was recommended to me. Call the reluctant anarchists sing. How all government is evil in the constitution has already been so violated. We just need to go back to something. Like pre articles of confederation. Okay this is very important to understand. Is that there is a serious libertarian. Too Far right pipeline very serious and the far right of course is just steeped in. Eugenics steepen utterly discredited on Justifiable Race

Leo You're in the motherland right. I was in beautiful Israel. Why for my grandmother's one year as a memorial service? Yeah Had a chance to sit and study some Tomlin with my Gerke Hassett cousins. I dearly love and again you know. We're often kind of like you know funny about these matters here but every now and then I really do get the urge to be sincere when I sit with people who you would think we have absolutely nothing uncommon. But then you realize we are truly literally and metaphorically speaking family and when we get together that love that connection is completely puttable we have spent very a little time talking about the fact that you're related to Garros So how did these are first cousins of yourself. I Costa who went. Who Went Garrard in your family? My Grandmother's sisters Shula Married Girl Haas. Okay this is a particular sect of Hasidim. What is there? What's the What their vibe? Like what what makes Gerhardt's put it like this cafe after the memorial service writing grandmother. Someone was talking about a person who's become about Shuba who's found religion later in life and became a gir- haas acid and one of my cousins who is Haas it said really no one becomes Bolshevik becomes a hostage and I asked why not and my cousin said well. Because it's it's perfectly fine to be like a really religious Jew and not go all the way to where we are. Why would you ever do the house? We have no choice right. Mind way you ever come here. It's so interesting I don't have any Cassini blackadder's any Haredi in my family I have modern orthodox cousins in Israel whose parents my mother's first cousin hasn't her husband actually were leaders of the conservative movement in Israel but then there's not much of a conservative movement in Israel so if you grow up kind of conservative conservative acts like observant conservative but if you SORTA got a pick or are you going secular going modern Orthodox and they're you know they're orthodox but I don't know of anyone who's like got the hat and the beard. It's a great a crying. Shame you have Hasidic material written all over your basically and this is the thing that I I kind of realized this week. 'cause we were hanging we were talking and at some point. The conversation vacation got kind of really elevated. And then I thought you know moved to dial like three clicks to the right and we're talking about Cherry Garcia Right in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy right eating shrimps and the bus and the way to Monterrey. That's kind of the VIBE. Yeah really the essence of not just observing the strict strict interpretation of the law but really trying to find this motionless spiritual connect mystical court to it would love to. I WanNa hang with your gear custom in cousins or Greg. I had a slightly different experience but in its way no less mystical by the way while you're talking about Jerry Garcia on the bus. Were you on the conference call when I when we were all doing like a pre show Oh crap and Rebecca. My thirteen year old was in the car and she was saying Dad. Can you explain the the grateful dead to me which is a really deep question because you know I could say I mean. I think we'd been listening to uncle. John's John's Bander Casey Jones. Or something you've come on. Come on the playlist in the car and I could say well it's a it's a group from about nineteen sixty seven to nineteen. Ninety give is playing the debt side. But I could give you the Brownie right and you'll eat it thirty five minutes you'll understand everything about this man. I mean I. It's really hard to say because it's so much more than a band to six never made sense to me before I try them on. Meet cliche thing to say. One is a grateful dead. The second is tennis and attended attended. I'm like wait until you understand. 'em This is a great game. I just have to move my eleven right. I'm so into this now. I add my own mystical experience in Wia missing in Pennsylvania and a bunch of people came like they'd set up fifty chairs. Forty five of the chairs were were filled with super curious. Interesting people of all ages a young rabbi from Lebanon Pennsylvania brought his twenties and thirties. Group is like young singles of which there were five or six and they were super into it and they listen to the show and they wanted copies the book and it was magical. The Jewish Cultural Committee organizes their author series was three people. None of whom was is Jewish. Okay one of them was Nancy Russo. WHO's married to to Paul something? Jewish and Nancy is is Italian Catholic by upbringing. The main woman the director of cultural life for the Jewish nation is Amanda Hornberger. Whose husband is like something German Lutheran? She herself grew up. Congregational est she's on the vestry of her united the Church of Christ Congregational Church. I've always said that the congregation great out and there was a local librarian named John who grew up in Baltimore where he did sixteen years of Catholic school and then went off to college college. I mean literally none of these people even guys. Every time we meet a gentle on our show it turns out there a quarter Jewish. These people like zero Jew in them and yet they are keeping the Jewish heart beating y missing Pennsylvania. They were interested they were curious they're booking good authors. They're running great programs. The people they bring in Inter asking smart questions Jews by choice we had a convert. who showed up a Sherry came and said thank you for your your help on my journey? The podcast has been meaningful to me. gentile L. spouses of Jews. Why a missing? Pennsylvania was among the greatest afternoons of my life is how it ought to be how it ought to be. Whatever New York like fucking fucking A.? Y. A. Missing Pennsylvania it there. Are Jews starve reading. The News starts reading this and I want to see even today do an event at the Barnes and Noble in Union Square. And you'll get fifty fifty three people and I go to why missing and get forty and in town. That's probably like twelve thousand people get numbers you get. People are truly engaged truly engaged and so grateful full end their listeners and the ones who aren't listeners could become listeners I it was it was magical. Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.
A look at Fred C. Trump's view of the world
"The pioneers important ship with Rolex when Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy for presidency. He said the American dream is dead and talked about how he was going to put America first now. Both of those phrases would certainly have been familiar to Fred. See Trump indeed so Frederick Chris trump to give him his full name. That was a family name. But it's hard not to enjoy the laugh. He who was of course. Trump's MM father now people have slightly misread. The sometimes in assumed that because Fred trump was an adult in the twenty s that he must have been trump's grandfather and in fact reviews of my book talked about Fred Trump as his grandfather. No no no the point is he's his father. We forget and I think to our peril first of all how old Donald Trump is as. He was born in Nineteen forty-six and secondly that he was the son of a much older father. So Fred See. Trump actually was a young man in this era that I'm talking about in the twenty s and so the world that he inhabited was this America. First `isolation xenophobic eugenicist world. Like Tom Buchanan Bannon. That took that stuff for granted it was a highly racist society and even the more progressive people were of course very very racist and many of their attitudes kids and Fred trump raised donald trump. You know in the forties in my view to with this worldview and basically what I'm saying the book is the apple doesn't fall Oliver far from the tree and trump has said over and over again how much he admires his father how much he adheres to his father's worldview most importantly in my live you the thing he said over and over and over again is that he is a believer in eugenics. Now trump himself never remembers the word eugenics. But that's neither here nor there. The attitudes that he's espousing he says over and over again. He's given dozens of interviews. You easy to find just Google Donald Trump and eugenics and you see him on video for twenty years thirty thirty years saying that. He's a believer in what he calls the gene theory. or He's a believer in jeans. He believes in what he thinks of as the racehorse theory of genes. which is that when you get a superior type person and you marry that superior type person to another superior type person you get superior type people that is eugenicist and that is very clearly what he believes? Leaves end in Fred. Trump's world that idea was America first and you can place for trump historically right at the heart of does indeed so in one thousand nine twenty seven it was actually just at the peak of America first political traction it was just starting to lose credibility Partly because of the way that it had been monetize so it was getting associated with corruption. Both by the clan in with a very corrupt Chicago mayor from my hometown the most corrupt city in America. A A guy called big Bill Thompson. Who was using America first to try to? It was a money making scheme. Also some things never change anyway so it was about to kind of really lose credence but at the peak of it in nineteen twenty seven in Queens which of course is where Donald trump would eventually grow up. It's where Fred trump was already living at that point and there was a memorial Oriole Day parade in May nineteen twenty seven at which the clan controversial had been permitted to March. They were given a permit now. This incident has since trump's election and been aronie ASLI described as Klan Rally and. I think it's important that we note the distinction. It was a Memorial Day parade at which the veterans were marching and the Red Cross was marching and children were marching and there were twenty thousand spectators. Not because they wanted to support the clan but because they were there for national parade but the Klan had as I say controversially been given permission mission to March in this parade as long as they weren't roped was what the police told them and it was a first amendment issue again about the right to assemble in the right to free speech. And so you can see why they said that they could. But they couldn't be hooded and gowned and some of them decided to be hooded and gown and scuffles broke out among the twenty thousand spectators. Because some actually objected to it as hate speech just as we would today some defended on the basis of freedom of speech just as people would today so these kind of scuffles broke out and it turned into a full blown riot. Twenty thousand people fighting over the clan in Queens and out of that twenty thousand six men were arrested five of whom self identified the police reports as clansmen and the sixth was Fred see trump. Now that is not proof that Fred trump was clansman and again some people have said arrests shows that he was. I don't think that does I don't think we can make quite that step. But it is remarkable to me that out of twenty thousand people the only six were arrested five of clansmen and one of them was trump. And what I do say in the book is that and I firmly believe this. Is that whatever we think Fred. Trump's reasons for being there might have been. He was not there to protest the clan and we know that because of his later record on race relations he was so racist when he started his property property development in the nineteen fifties which by the way he got from government loans. So all of these guys who you know they hate government handouts. But that's how Fred trump got his start was from a government handout and there was some kind of it is indeed it was he was hauled up before Congressional Committee to admit that he wildly overstated the cost of his loans which is in the book some might call fraud so he defrauded the government went to get handouts and then these and then his son is telling us that handouts are terrible and nobody should have handouts and out of this. He built these tenements. He built these housing projects in the New York area in Brooklyn Brooklyn and Queens and his policies for renting to tenants in these housing projects. Were so racist that Woodie Guthrie in the nineteen fifties wrote a song about how racist it was because he lived in one of them. It's called Almond trump. And it's about how racist Fred trump was and you have to be racist in the fifties to get people's attention for our racist assist. You are by one thousand nine hundred ninety three which was the year that Donald Trump took over the trump property empire from his father. They were sued by the Nixon Administration. Restauration for racial discrimination. And again you know the Nixon administration was not going out of its way to sue over racial discrimination it had to be so gratuitous for the Nixon administration to go after them and then of course in the case of Donald there are things like the central park five the five black men wrongly accused of raping a woman in Central Park. He called for the death penalty. Not with them. They were totally exonerated by DNA. He has never apologized. He has never said that he still calls it. A miscarriage of justice and it was a miscarriage of justice but not in the way that he thinks. So what I say is that although we cannot say that Fred trump was a card carrying member of the KKK. He was arrested with five of them and nothing that he ever did in the rest of his misbegotten life makes me think that he was there to argue against the clamp. Do you think a trump. Donald trump has a full understanding branding given how ignorant and he missed. His supporters appears to be an understanding of the origin of these phrases. And can they be reinterpreted in a positive way so first of all. I think that be the best way to understand. This is that it's like it's a world view that he grew up with. He's profoundly racist. We have so much evidence to see. How racist he is does? Does he know the detailed history of this. Of course not in fact historians don't know that detailed history of this Ri- wouldn't have written the book so nobody knows it but the fact that America first has these meanings meanings is definitely not lost to history and the KKK kept it alive underground. And all of these Neo Nazi groups and right wing groups kept this phrase alive and there's lots of evidence at that they would have rallies in the sixties and say it's an America first rally you can find the flyers and handbills and stuff. So there's lots of ephemeral evidence over the years that they kept this phrase alive and now they're using it on Neo Nazi message boards. It's on the daily stormer on storm. Front it's on their websites. So these guys have always used that phrase and when and David Duke who of course is the the most senior member of the KKK in America when he endorsed Donald Trump. He did so using that phrase he said he stands for what I've always stood for. He stands for America. Erica I it is a racist dog whistle and certainly trump's advisors know that Steve Bannon does read history. And Steve. Bannon doesn't know this Steve. Bannon also resuscitated facilitated a phrase called economic nationalism which he talks about all the time and most people don't realize that economic nationalism was part of the America first platform in Nineteen Nineteen and nineteen twenty and it was to keep America out of the League of nations to keep it from signing the treaty of Versailles because Europe was a cabal of overlords who wanted to create a global economy and they were going to make America a vassal state. which should sound pretty familiar? And it's not only about the ways that has shaped American political debates but of course it sounds an awful lot like the way that people talk about Brexit and as we know Bannon has been closely involved Cambridge analytica which he was on the board of has been closely involved with both of these campaigns and and his idea of economic nationalism is a hundred year old America first agenda. He did not pluck that phrase out of the air. Stephen Miller who remains trump's senior senior advisor he's the author of the policy that separating immigrant families at the southern border. He was also clearly. The author of the speech that trump gave in the oval office when he argued for his wall so he Stephen Miller also knows this stuff and the other phrase that was really associated with America. I which which I spent a lot of time explaining in the book was one hundred percent American which was another code and Stephen Miller on his high school yearbook page that he was one hundred percent American. So these guys do know these codes and I don't know that Donald Trump understands all of this history and understands how all of it intersects but he knows that it all supports his basic world view which is a eugenicist assist world view and that is the one that he learned from his father who also knew that this stuff was America first and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had grown up in the fifties hearing his father. Talk about America. I that wouldn't surprise me one little bit. So is the American dream dead and do we revive it by putting America first in my view is that we shouldn't try it's like saying. Can we resuscitate tate. Heil Hitler will you could. But why would you want to. I want to do the opposite which is to discredited with.
City council candidate wants to keep town white
"It folks I mean we're having fun with this because it's sad right it's sad that there are people on this planet earth the gene Kramer's of the world the Nancy Goodman's of the world by the way JT referred to Nancy given is Carolyn Goodman we apologize now Caroline given you are a wonderful mayor you would never say something like that I don't be confused definitely not do that that is a low blow Mr Shapiro can you believe this woman Jean Kramer and by the way as far as you you people that's like the Bible all the time okay and I'm not saying if you cite the Bible all the time you're you're like this idiot Jean Kramer this racist pig but to run for office I don't care if it's a small town outside Detroit or if it's the presidency of the United States if you want your town or your city to be more white and by the way that is what she said she said she wants a committed to be white as much as possible that's what I said is is possible and she needs to move to Iceland yeah that's what she said by the way we're not making this up folks and then she double down and talked about interracial folks that's what she just double down she said she doesn't want interracial couples in her community I mean what is going on here is David Duke running for city council I would imagine that they talk pretty consistently James Jim Cramer and David Duke I imagine there touch quite quite often with we got this woman from North Carolina we just played Nancy government saying basically black people give me anxiety that they made me say the word and then you have this woman Jean Kramer there are a lot of gene Kramer's out there sadly sadly there are a lot of Nancy Goodman is out there we just don't get them I audio I don't think there's as many as you would as he was believe others there's definitely some there's but that that that's the extremist mindset on both sides it's on it's on the right side all Texas is to me that was zero to do with politics why is that not into politics this is this is ridiculous ignorant racism here's here's thing about race not run up Democrat or Republican in this conversation in two thousand nineteen it is it is literally the law of diminishing returns it is just stupidity being racist because the next fifteen to twenty years and this is an absolute guarantee Caucasians will be the overall minority they will not be fifty one percent of the United States population I don't care that's that that's just that's just the way it is and a lot of here and so being racist right now is one of the most ridiculous things you can do it does nothing but hurt you it does not help okay but in the past but if ninety nine point nine percent of the world was white I still wouldn't condone any of any of the so to me that's academic I don't care you know I mean I don't care whether we're forty nine percent of fifty one percent or eighty percent the point you don't you understand what I'm trying to make I don't care who the minority is it is disgusting but these women the words that come out of their mouths it is disgusting that this woman is even allowed to still run as a city council candidate I mean what would have happened if this if somebody said something like this in Las Vegas this woman would be would be gone in a heartbeat how was that this woman is still even allowed to run how is it that are open even racist bigot is allowed to run for office and she's running on the premise of bigotry and racism she really is me that's that's our campaign what is your see this is my issue and and I'm going to now interject politics into this fight I don't know if this woman is Republican or Democrat I'm going to imagine she's absolutely Republic yes I I would make that gas but when people talk about you know could anyone say well I like her policies I don't agree with her rhetoric but I like her policies does that remind you of somebody else and listen Donald Trump has said some very very racially charged for another half nothing anywhere near there is nothing to this I would say nothing near this when you called Mexicans crossing the border rapist and bad people and I suppose some of them are good people I wouldn't say that's no where near this when people chant send her back in a rally that's not I wouldn't say that's no where near this when somebody at one of Donald trump's rallies talks about killing on illegal crossing the border and he laughs about it doesn't say no Sir we don't condone violence I wouldn't say that's no where close to it but how is this woman still running for city council you know I I guess I guess you could I guess you could make the cotton we got we got good mint and don't know reference to the Goodman's in Las Vegas by the way we got good mint Nancy good meant who thinks it's okay to say the N. word to insult somebody and then we have this woman who thinks it's okay to say we want our community to be more white that's fine that's okay it just drives me crazy folks that there are people out there that are not only closet racists but they're willing to come out and run for office admit that they are racist basically saying they want the community be more white it is disgusting these people need to be called out in this day and age of social media and everything else and the way the media works make no mistake about it this is not fake news these people need to be called out and shamed I saw the video on social media the other day where a woman gets into a car accident hits a woman who was Asian you wouldn't believe the things that came out of her mouth she said go back to your country she called her words that I can't say on the radio likely this woman who is Asian video tape that it goes on social media and then these people lose their jobs and by the way I am all for it I am all

He has rejected the racists bigots and the white nationalists in the Neo Nights. It seems pretty clear to me. At least maybe to you. The only people that it's not clear to are the people who are willfully ignoring trump's repeated for years and years and years condemnation of racial bigots. They just don't want it to be the case that president trump has condemned racial big. It's because then that gets in the way of their narrative but let's apply the same test to the left what what happens when the right asks the left to condemn they're Kooks and they're bigots. President trump did it forcefully. He's done it totally. He's done it repeatedly now. Watch what happens when the right asks the squad to condemn Kooks folks bigots and even terrorists. I really simple question. Will you condemn Antifa for attacking an ice facility. It's very simple. Will you tell Americans not to attack violently violently ice facilities just say no it would be very simple thing to say and would go along way to tell Americans. You're not sympathetic to ANTIFA. Are you sympathetic committee just say no. He's giving her the answer. Just say no. That's Ion Presley the Ringo of the squad walking down the halls of Congress and this is not a hypothetical question. It's not do you condemn some MHM hypothetical acts of left-wing terrorism just three days ago there was a left-wing terrorist Antifa guy shows up with a rifle and explosives to a border protection facility an ice facility. Fortunately he was taken out before we could commit the terrorist attack but we if if not for law enforcement there would have been that terrorist attack and this right wing journalist says hey just double checking because you've said some pretty weird stuff. Do you squad do you Ana Presley early. Condemn left-wing terrorism not an acknowledgement that that guy asked the question. She just keeps looking ahead.

Joe Scarborough Directly Blames Donald Trump For Domestic Terror Threat
"A domestic terrorist massive intended harm against a huge list of targets. One of those targets was Joe Scarborough, former congressman of Florida now on MSNBC, of course morning Joe. And he came out swinging this morning saying that and I quote, it's exactly what Donald Trump is encouraging. We've all known that Donald Trump and his words in his attacks about enemies of the people would lead to this type of behavior. This is now the second time we know about from the pipebombs D yesterday. But yesterday was obviously far more specific far more dangerous. And you know, it's exactly what Donald Trump is encouraging. That is what Joe Scarborough said this morning on MSNBC hard to argue with that when he has coddled white supremacists. White nationalists Neo Nazis. He has not denied David Duke Rimmer that interview on CNN during the campaign, David Duke came out, just for you. I don't know who is that. It was a lie because you just talked about the day before two days before he said, very fine people on both sides. And now we have a self avowed white supremacist who was in contact with Neo Nazis in others. Figuring out contemplating everything from biological attacks targeting food supplies to loading up on over fifteen firearms and over a thousand rounds of ammunition. And he was in on the whole and Bundy thing and all the everything. And he said this I never saw him reading this is from the alleged domestic terrorists. He's been arrested easing detention is part of the court filings. I never saw reason for mass protests are wearing uniforms man marching around provoking people with swastikas.

Michael Cohen claims Trump made repeated racist references
"To vote for me. Michael Cohen also recounted don't Trump saying racist things about black contestants on his TV show. Donald trump. The politician is the champion of American racists, America's most famous public racists. And putting David Duke have always been full-fledged. Trump supporters David Duke knows a racist when he sees one. And so the democratic campaigns around the country this year against Trump is also campaigns against racism. Here's what President Obama had to say in Georgia tonight campaigning for Stacey Abrams to become not just the first African American woman governor in the Georgia, but the first African moon woman, governor of any state in the United States. Mccalls in weeks of this election. We have seen repeated. Constant incessant. Now. On stuck attempts to divide us. That is designed to make us angry. And make us fearful. With images and rhetoric that are designed to exploit. History of racial and ethnic and religious division. To try to pit us against one. Another. To make us believe that things will be better. If it just weren't for those who don't look like us, the good news. In four days. Georgia can reject. We can come together. Our country's cool. That's what Stacee stands for. You're just back from Georgia and joy on the day that we discover to no one surprise that. Donald Trump says racist things in private Michael Cohen. There's Barack Obama out there on the campaign trail trying to address this trying to heal in whatever way he can the racial division. That's out there. Again, it is it is this to there. They are presidents of two different countries. And you saw it really today when John Lewis spoken in Macon, Georgia four Stacey Abrams and talking about what he went through just to have the right to vote. Look Stacey Abrams. Lawrence tells a story about when she was valedictorian of her high school class going to the governor's mansion and being turned away by the guard who was white who said you don't belong here. And that was her sort of only memory really going to the governor's mansion was having her parents were both Methodist ministers have to dress down this white guard who was refusing to let a young Stacey Abrams into the governor's mansion. So I mean sort of the. Poetic irony that, she's now running to be the governor of the state is sort of sort of perfect, and she's actually really from Mississippi which has its own fraught history. I think we tend to try to confine that history of racism to the berry distant past. It isn't distant at all. And I think what we're seeing is an election, which Donald Trump is literally closing making the closing argument to white America. And it is a test for white America. He's saying Brent, racial panic. Those people are coming to take over your country. Those people are invading Brown. People are invading Brown. People don't belong here. This is our country, and you d to vote for Republicans to keep them out and Brock Obama, saying, no, no, no this is shared country. This is a country where we all can have a piece of it where we all share in its benefits, but we all have to take responsibility for its history. Together. These are such stark differ starkly different visions.

It was unbelievable anyway, about four nights ago. As of this broadcast David do called Ron, oh my God. What did he say? I think he was nervous that he's gonna come off bad maybe doesn't understand that there's no changing the movie. Now, David, Duke was worried that he was gonna come off bad in a Spike Lee movie. Called black Landsman. So I turned to spike, I went sequel. So what did run say back to them. I, you know, I, I actually talked around about it really briefly yesterday, but I want to get more into it with them. I, the fact that he called the important thing is that David kind of in doing that was admitting that they had spoken before. Interesting. Wow. Yeah. Yeah, because I don't want to give away too much, but essentially he is a black cop who convinces David Duke, that he's a white man wants to join the KKK he joins and in fact, David Duke, even though strength chip kind of talking on the phone all the time, really crazy Marco, but it's one of those things if you didn't, if it didn't happen in real life, you couldn't make this movie because people wouldn't believe that happened. The fact that it's based on a true story and I've met the guy and he sat there and told me the story. It made it possible. Yeah. Now, how did Ron react to your performances? David, Duke, was he serious? Did he laugh? Well, take it. He was laughing back. Then he tells the story. The whole thing was kinda hilarious that he. Could. I mean, a big chunk of the movie is both his police captain and then David Duke over the phone are kind of talking about how they would know if they were talking to a black man. I mean, he was saying this to racist in itself, and so he thought all that was kind of ironic and Larry's. So when he tells the story now he gets like still gets a good chuckle out of it. Ron's and amazing guy. I mean to to know the guy. Is a real privilege, especially making the story and having him tell you how it went down. It becomes less about research and you have to kind of listen to what he says in kind of reenacted. We'll say after the premier, he came up to me and said, you, you know, I forgot you, were you. I really thought at times you were David Duke and I was like, man, I don't know how to take the compliment like, thank you. I don't know, but he's very kind about it. At least he didn't punch you, but you do look like looked at old photos. You do look a lot like it's so funny when I said I should do it is you wanna. I wanna play this role. No-one agreed. I mean, like. Totally. I hadn't done something like this and no one side. So it's so I'm thrilled when people say that I'm like him even though you know, I don't know how to take it. So the KKK and David Duke, do they still deny that they got duped by a black man? Is it just a conspiracy theory as far as they concern? What's the official line now? I don't know because four nights ago at all kinds of change when he called Ron. So I don't really. I, I don't know how you know. I wouldn't know. I mean, there's no denying, you know, KKK membership card. I mean, yeah, but look, I'm not on the newsletter believable. I mean, I have to wonder, have you heard anything yourself about your portrayal of David Duke from David or the KKK yet? Well, like I said, I'm not. Oh, follow him on Twitter. It's even Twitter savvy, you know, he is. Here's all I know is I did a article when it premiered in can that was kind of overwhelmingly negative about David and. How tough was to play him and how much I disagree with his beliefs is this whole article and in it I talked about how he used the terms America first and make America. Great..

The shots and how it's gonna look in the script, but they also take care of their actors. So even when I went to read for him, I, when I said, I want to play David Duke like no one saw it. I just read his the script because I was such a huge fan of his when I said, I wanted to play you gotta go in and read for him. And I said, I'm happy to do it.

There's no kind of secret to it, but you have a great leader like spike what he did was before I started reading, he just went to work, making me feel as comfortable as possible. He was a lot of humor and and he's very sure of himself as he should be. And I just felt like I then gave him a reading of the part. So you know, because of him. Yeah, that's really cool because I could imagine it would be really awkward after a take. If you're sitting at lunch with the cast and crew and you're like, I was just acting will the ones that he he would do is he'd run in sometimes if you're in like a comedy film, the director will run in and give you like a line like a comedy line, they'll just whisper it in your ear, and then you'll say it and even the other actors didn't know you're going to say it. You know, you kind of get credit for the line essentially, and he'd run in whispering y, you're the most racist thing I ever heard. Said something like that. And then I'd say it was fake like, you don't have to whisper that to me. You can announce to the whole crew, and I'm going to say that I don't want someone to think like, whoa, did Toepfer just come up with these improvising I mean, yeah, from the heart. I mean, yeah. So I just made him say everything out loud. I mean, it seems to me that playing a hate monger like David, Duke is one of those parts that could either be something that makes her breaks and actors career. Were there any people around you or managers who maybe didn't I want you to take on this role? I, I don't know. I'm pretty stubborn, and I don't think. Maybe when I was younger, I had people like that around me, but I don't have anyone around me who would. I'm sure your wife. Like why? That's one we're trust me. I lose fights with that person, but I, I know she m. I think she was aware that it was. You know, she shares the same frustrations? I do, especially having just had a kid, you kind of just. You just want to say something. I mean, look actors shouldn't say things in my opinion or people shouldn't listen to what actors set, right? I mean, they're not. There's nothing qualifying them to. To say things to people politically or otherwise, but. Sometimes you can through, you know, today it is art, you know, and you can help someone great like Spike Lee, kind of, you know, he'll make something actually speaks on the national level and if you agree with it. No, my wife was really supportive because she also shares some views with what the script was saying, what spike was saying, and it's so great to be able to. So rare you get to like I saw the trailer and I say America first and that came out of seeing the stuff on Donahue and then suggesting in rehearsals, and then I thought is Trump gonna, see this. You'll see the movie, but he will see the trailer. We all know he watches TV. He'll probably tweet about it without having seen it open for that tweet. That'd be focused is probably dying for that..

"He did to America when he got on the scene, which is, you know, I guess in the early seventies, the idea of racist was maybe my redneck beer belly guy. David kind of this what makes him so evil? He of rebranded racism. He's very well-spoken, very intelligent man who kinda used it for the wrong purposes and put a new face on racism, so became more palatable to more people. Yeah. One thing that they talk about in the movie is how he was the guy who wasn't wearing his robes in public wasn't saying the n. word in public. It was Pursued a suit on on. looks great. Yeah, you know, a lot of the man is do so much research. It was like best day in my life. I get a call from Spike Lee, you're my guy. I mean, it's like really, you wait your career. He's an evil man, but it's a really juicy, wonderful role. Reaction. We told you what the role was. I know I knew I look, I wanted the role, so to get it was like amazing. And then I kind of looked at my wife and I don't like this the worst next month in my life because it's. I read his autobiography, which is Liz. Yeah, it's called my awakening. It's hard to even get a hold of when you walk into Barnes and noble and say, like to book like, no, we don't carry that. Yeah, that's one you get on Amazon Amazon going. Did you mean to order. You know the modern day, mind, calm, but I wanted to read it. It's it is. It is autobiography is more kind of his belief system and his arguments, and it was a really thick book and very just overwhelmingly negative to read. And I watched a lot of films interviews of his from the seventies and listen to his radio show. And the most helpful thing was he was on a couple of episodes of Donahue in the early eighties, and that's why I really pinpointed what I think is so evil about him is that they were doing a him when the show started because he's the grandmaster the klu Klux Klan this audience, three hundred people or something. And then by the end of the episode, he they weren't with him, but they like he figured them out a little bit. Yeah. And you know, on those episodes of to your point, he used the terms. Make America great again and America. First allot really jumps out when you're watching it. I mean on who else is watching. Eight episodes of the timing of yet, but it really jumps out if you're watching two thousand seventeen and listening to the radio show, reading the book and watching that did you start to get some idea of how he seduces people who otherwise might not be led into this kind of an ideology and how he rationalize it to the point of being almost acceptable for people. Yeah, and that's what was so scary. Is that. He was the sea change. I think that brought us in many ways to where we are today and you know, he's in the end of the film Trump's in the end of the film and. Look, I was really. Nervous is the wrong word. I don't wanna play David Duke in a movie. I don't want to do like a TV movie of the week about David, David, Duke story. I only want to play David Duke in a Spike Lee joint where he's saying he's not just saying one thing. He's saying many things, and it was the only person that I would have felt safe this before I met spike just new reading. The script is a great role, but there's only one person you can do it with. Yeah, I can imagine. And one thing that's interesting about this film that I liked is David Duke is at once both the villain in the movie, and he's also sort of the butt of the joke was a walk that tight wrote so brilliant about spike is that none of those guys not to give anything away about the film, but none of the guys are cool. Yeah, which is which is I've seen movies where maybe not white supremacist, but the bad guys have some element of you can see where somewhere someone thinks they might be cool. And it was so great about the script and spike road on it. And also we talked about this a lot in her cels is that..

And then all of a sudden, what the KKK is back in Nazis earth thing again, I mean, it's. Crazy. When this happened when I got the script for this film Charlottesville had just happened and. You know, being actor can be kind of a silly job. You know, you play pretend for living, but every once in a while you get a script where you'll, you know, I might be able to say something. It's really Spike Lee sang something here, but what might be able to help him say something something I really agree with at the time, my wife and I just had our first. So you really looking around the world sailing, we're kinda world might bring this person into, and everyone has questions and everyone's really confused, but it was so cathartic to. Able to just work on something that you know posed a lot of the questions that that I had at the time, what's chilling about it as your character. David Duke is using similar white man's burden rhetoric that we hear from the right today in phrases like America first and make America. Great. Again, do you think that there's a direct line between David Duke and this new breed of white nationalism we're seeing today? Yes. The film is in its structure very much like kind of what happened to America. I mean spikes brilliant. The first shot of the film is the civil war in the last shot takes place in Charlottesville and yes, he tells us really entertaining story about this black man who became Klux Klan member, but in doing that would make such a masters. He really ties up. String from from the civil war to today. David, Duke specifically kind of enters the film about halfway through and it's he kind of does to the film what.
