David Duke, the former head of the Ku Klux Klan, sent out a somewhat ominous message to Republican Party operatives to treat Rep. Steve Scalise fairly, or he’ll start naming names of others in the political arena with whom he’s met and maintained ties.
Well, that’s not helpful to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) to have David Duke saying stuff like this. I’m sure Scalise’s PR folks are wincing. But, there is a bigger point here, and Mr. Duke is probably unwittingly touching on it.. There is SUCH a double standard here. On the one hand, this whole brouhaha over Congressman Scalise is a NON-story. There is “no there, there.” The man spoke to a group affiliated with Mr. Duke over a decade ago about a tax issue. The congressman is a politician. That’s what they do; talk to folks…especially in a campaign year. No harm, no foul. But, that’s what this is all about. Big hairy deal. By EXTREME contrast, the media was totally silent when the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) was the SENATE MAJORITY LEADER. And, Sen. Byrd was in office as recently as 2010; FOUR YEARS AGO!! Former/late Sen. Byrd was also a former recruiter (and VERY active member) of the KKK at one point! But, because he was a Democrat, he got a free pass from everyone, including former Pres. Bill Clinton, who downplayed it when it came up at one point. And the dominantly liberal (and self-serving and sanctimonious) media didn’t even bring it up. Talk about brazen hypocrisy!
And lets not forget that from 1865, when the Klan was created, til about the mid 1960s (AT LEAST), the KKK was made up entirely of DEMOCRATS. For those looking for their calculators, thats the first 100 years of the Klan being exclusively Democrat party members….which makes me wonder why over 90% of blacks vote (and have voted for decades) for Democrat politicians…but I digress. Anyway, for the left to be so self-righteous and sanctimonious in the way they’re going after Congressman Scalise about his one-time speaking to a Klan-affiliated group over a decade ago (and why wasn’t this brought up before now?), is truly breathtaking. Its time these self-righteous, and sanctimonious, liberal, Democrat blowhards are called on their hypocrisy on camera. Tools..
