GOP Leader Regrets Talk to White Supremacists

Charles Babington, Boston, December 30, 2014

House Republican leaders rallied around one of their own, Whip Steve Scalise, on Tuesday after he said he regrets speaking 12 years ago to a white supremacist organization and condemns the views of such groups.

The supportive statements suggest party leaders think the flare-up will fade during the holidays, with a new Congress set to convene next week. Several Democrats criticized the Louisiana lawmaker but did not call for his resignation.

Scalise said that as a state legislator in 2002, he spoke to many groups about a major tax issue. ‘‘One of the many groups that I spoke to regarding this critical legislation was a group whose views I wholeheartedly condemn,’’ he said in a statement Tuesday. ‘‘It was a mistake I regret, and I emphatically oppose the divisive racial and religious views groups like these hold.’’

Republican leaders defended Scalise within minutes.

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio said Scalise ‘‘made an error in judgment, and he was right to acknowledge it was wrong and inappropriate.’’ Boehner said Scalise ‘‘has my full confidence as our Whip.’’

Louisiana’s Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, also defended the congressman.

Scalise acknowledged speaking at a 2002 Louisiana convention of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, which called itself EURO. Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke founded the group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified as a hate group.

In an interview Monday with The Times-Picayune of New Orleans and NOLA.com, Scalise said he had little staffing as a state legislator, and didn’t always know details of groups he was invited to address. ‘‘I didn’t know who all of these groups were, and I detest any kind of hate group,’’ Scalise told the newspaper.

Louisiana Republicans say Duke, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1991, did not attend the 2002 EURO convention, but addressed it at one point by phone.

In his NOLA.com interview, Scalise said he knew about Duke, but indicated he didn’t recognize Duke’s connection to the group.

Scalise, 49, ascended to his leadership post in June in the chain of events that followed then-Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s surprise defeat in a Republican primary.

  • Nontroversy. Fund raising agitprop for whatever SPLC wannabes started it.

    First off, Scalise is a RINO, open borders, Boehner whore.

    Second, the EURO meeting and a Scalise constituent town hall were separate events at the same hotel, in fact, back to back in the same room, on the same day.

    • dukem1

      Really…Some non-descript pol does a greet-and-grab 12 years ago…Who digs this stuff up? And to what end?

      Woulda been nice if he’d said “Yeah, I detest this group…too wishy washy for me.”

      • Paleoconn

        I think he was outed by a commenter on Stormfront.

    • DonReynolds

      Even more interesting……
      Scalise is accused of speaking by phone at a meeting of EURO in 2002, but David Duke did not start EURO until after 2004, when he got out of Federal prison for filing a false income tax return.
      Isn’t that funny?

  • haroldcrews

    Rep. Scalise appears to have plenty of hatred towards the member of the group to which he spoke. Would that not also make him a “hater”?

  • Dave West

    Maybe, just maybe, if this white male Republican, and other white male Republicans actually stand his/their ground during this one; instead of quitting, apologizing, and rolling over on their back to have their belly scratched by the diversity police. Then maybe next time someone screams, “hey look everybody I found a racist, looooook a raaacsit! raaaacist!,” less people will care.

    • David Ashton

      Never apologize, be ruder the next time (John Bright).

      • Zimriel

        That. Apologising is what got him into this mess.

        Either he’s apologising for appearing at a Duke event, which makes him a patsy and/or a traitor (to Duke); or else he’s apologising for something he didn’t even do, which makes him a laughingstock. And then we’d all be back to, well, he COULD have spoken at a Duke event, if one had presented itself.

        /disclosure: I’m no fan of Duke myself. But I’m also no fan of cowardly clueless weasels in politics.

        • Bryce Armstrong

          What other type is there in politics?

    • John R

      A good offense is the best defense. As this year’s events show, you cannot placate your enemies. This is especially true of blacks. The more you give in to them, the more outrageous they become. Does anyone by now seriously think that blacks will EVER think that they are treated fairly by society?

      • DonReynolds

        Once you surrender, grovel, beg for forgiveness, and apologize…..there is NEVER an end. You will be tied to the whipping post forever. Tell them where to get off…..and mean it.

        • LHathaway

          “Let nobody take it”.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          Not only will you be viewed as weak by the people you are apologizing to, BUT your own people/the people who thought you were on their side will view you as a traitor. You’re viewed as a weakling by one side and a traitor by the other forever.

    • Spikeygrrl

      FEWER people will care. And I hope to live to see it happen.

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        the white voting people might not care, but it’s the politicians in office who we are sick of hearing them sell us out and apologize. Man up, grow a pair, white men!

    • Paleoconn

      Spot on. He should have just turned it around? ‘Hate group? You mean like La Raza, Black Panthers, Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton?’

  • MekongDelta69

    Grovel, grovel, grovel

    • D.B. Cooper

      Yep, and don’t vote for those who do. I pointed out how many democrats have spoken at NAACP events on another site, and I got banned.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Meanwhile the negro Obama spend 22 years in the congregation at that racist Rev. Wright.

    Negroes always get a pass…..

    • John

      Exactly. Apparently the liberal media expects normal people to go into hysterics when the KKK or “white supremacists” are discovered anywhere in the solar system. Personally, I’ve never met a “white supremacist”. On the other hand, I have met and/or know of a lot of “white separatists”. Many fitting that category are to be found here. Last, I have a “wife beater” style exercise shirt that I ordered from David Dukes’s website about 8 years ago. Black with a white Celtic cross and “EURO” inscribed beneath it. I wear it to the gym roughly once a week and have never been asked about the meaning of the symbols, let alone had a complaint.

  • TruthBeTold

    Does anyone remember how the GOP threw Trent Lott to the wolves when they wanted to get rid of him?

    Whatever Mr. Scalise was alleged to have done (and there seems to be evidence he didn’t) siding with your enemies only gives them power over you.

    Hang tough and the storm will pass.

    • John R

      I think that even “moderate” (i.e. liberal) Republicans are realizing it is pointless. Come on, they must be thinking, what more do those people want?

      • TruthBeTold

        The whole Lott thing was a shortsighted political travesty for the Republicans. They wanted Lott out and in doing so give their enemies arguments legitimacy.

        Democrats don’t do that. Democrats rally to their own defense.

        It took a lot of pressure to get rid of Anthony Weiner; mainly, I believe, because it made him look bad to feminists.

        Democrats were forced to decide to keep one of their own or end up endlessly defending their support of someone who sexually exploited women.

        • And look at what Trent Lott has become in the years that have passed.

    • DonReynolds

      Trent Lott was stripped and forced to resign for the singular crime of having spoke on December 5, 2002 at the 100th birthday party of Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, a long time conservative leader. Thurmond had run for President of the United States in 1948 on the Dixiecrat (or States’ Rights) ticket.

      Lott said: “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either.”

      I see nothing offensive about that statement.

      • LHathaway

        The irony being this was the 100th birthday of Strom Thurmond, longest serving Democratic Senator, a proud and proper member of the Democratic party.

      • TruthBeTold

        There was nothing offensive but the left made it an issue and the foolish Republicans who wanted to get rid of Lott pounced on it and used it to drive him out.

        They got rid of Lott but at the cost of legitimizing the race position of their opponents thereby making them stronger.

        It was a very shortsighted and foolish maneuver.

        It reminds me, ‘we hang together or surely we will hang separately’

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        Yep, I remember that perfectly back then. I was immediately disgusted with the conservatives’ pandering and lack of backbone and how their voters did the “we’re not racists, why it’s the Democrats!” nonsense and they STILL haven’t learned since then. In fact, they have gotten worse with their pandering. All they had to do was have a backbone and support their white conservative voting bloc and this country would be a lot further ahead than it is now.

    • DAWNOFNEWDAY

      I remember that exactly! It was 2002 Christmas time. That was what started my racial white awakening to where I am now. That, and I also, unfortunately, came across Tim Wise at the time and a debate between him and Jared Taylor. Had no idea who these two men were and I was being brainwashed with liberal anti-white guilt, but this debate between these two arch nemesis brought me to where I am today.

      • TruthBeTold

        They through Lott under the bus because there was a faction that wanted to remove him from a leadership position.

        It was shortsighted and foolish and it gave credence to the ‘racist’ narrative. It was a dumb move. The idiots helped set a precedent to remove themselves from office at the whim of the opposition.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        Oh man, didn’t know that existed. When I was a liberal I read a bunch of Tim Wise’s stuff. I think I still have a couple of his books hanging around in a box somewhere. I should find them and burn them.

        Can’t wait to watch that debate when I get home tonight.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          Oh, don’t burn them. They’d make good paper towels, or perhaps some toilet paper. LOL

      • Mary

        This was also about the time for me. I had possessed some race realist views since childhood, and they were really starting to coalesce about that time. The Lott incident was a factor, but there were a number of others as well. I also started reading VDARE that year.

  • Vyncennt

    “Scalise said that as a state legislator in 2002, he spoke to many groups about a major tax issue.”

    So any group of United Stated citizens that are labeled a “hate” group are no longer entitled to United States polictical representation nor has any right to be informed of pending tax law?

    Now that’s interesting….

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

      “So any group of United Stated citizens that are labeled a “hate” group” – No, it’s not any group of United States citizens that are labeled a “hate group” who are denied representation. It’s any group of White United States citizens that are labeled a “hate group” who are denied representation.

      • Vyncennt

        Clarification unnecessary….have you ever witnessed any other group, consisting of anything besides whites, classified as a hate group?

        =p

    • DonReynolds

      Excellent point that I clumsily tried to make. Yours is better.

      • Vyncennt

        Believe it or not, I actually had to write the sentence over a few times to get it somewhere near comprehensible *chuckle*

  • Speedy Steve

    I once met a young black lady in Montgomery who had been hired by the $PLC. She told me they called her a ni99er behind her back.

    • anony

      Of course! They are all hypocrites!

      Axiom: everyone is racist. Those who deny it are lying.

    • Luca

      Do you think those kosher lawyers at SPLC or ACLU actually think Negroes are their intellectual equals or are just using them as useful idiots?

      • Zimriel

        This is why I prefer the Orthodox and the Zionists. They say up front, eff you, we’re for our own kind; we’ll take every advantage we can in our dealings with you, and we expect the same in return. You’ll know where we stand, they’ll say. If you get cheated, shame on you.

        I find that refreshingly honest. More honest than the hand-wringing liberals in the SPLC, anyway, who pretend to be Warriors For Social Justice, which they clearly don’t believe a word of.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          I dislike the Zionists aka ‘god’s chosen people’ for their blatant hypocrisy against whites who want the same things as they do (nationalism, traditional white family roles, a strong community, etc) and these ‘chosen people’ constantly flood our habitat with nonwhites and actively work against us.

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        I’ve heard the same as well. The ‘chosen people’ use the blacks, Mexicans and muslims as muscle against whites.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    “which the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified as a hate group” – One Hate Group with the power to classify another supposed “hate group” as a “hate group”. – Is it any wonder why their list of supposed “hate groups” are 96% White? Could it possibly have something to do with, oh I don’t know, hate, maybe?

    • Sick of it

      Now now, what could Mark Potok possibly have against white people?

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        When I read Kyle Bristow’s novel ‘white Apocalypse’ the Jewish character in the story was supposed to be Mark Potok, but obviously with a different name.

        • Sick of it

          I haven’t read it. Would you mind giving a brief synopsis?

    which the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified as a hate group.

  • NoMosqueHere

    Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke founded the group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified as a hate group.

    —————————————————————————–

    A broken clock is right twice a day, and the SPLC was correct in calling David Duke exactly what he is: a deranged, genocidal, Hitlerite Nazi. Do you really wan’t to debate this?

    Simply put, normal, decent whites will not associate with any group associated with David Duke and his sick obsession with jewish people.

    Happy new year.

    • David Ashton

      Duke has an obsession with Jews, but is he “genocidal”?

    • Duke is many things, but he’s not a Nazi. Words have meanings after all, and simply throwing around words as epitaphs undermines your credibility….and, sadly, puts one in the same category as dishonest leftist who labels everything and everyone as “racist”.
      Nazi has a very specfic meaning, and unless you can show that he supports the 25 points of National Socialism, the label has as much meaning as calling him a “mean ol’ poopy-head”.
      (please don’t take the above as a defense of Duke per say. I just hate it when people use the same hyperbolic and dishonest tactics of the enemy. We should be above that.)

      • Ellis Kurtz

        I think you mean “epithets”.

    • Bryce Armstrong

      And the hate starts in, 3 …2 …1…

  • Caucasoid88

    • Ellis Kurtz

      I think you mean “white nationalist”, not the same thing.

      • Caucasoid88

        I meant ‘white supremacist’. It’s their term for sane whites.

    • Raydonn

      I kindly submit that the term is redundant…………..

  • Ludwig

    How many times over the last several months have we been told that all whites harbor subconscious racism? We might as well accept the title and wear it with pride, just as all other groups are constantly encouraged to embrace anti white attitudes.

    • John

      I did this years ago and you’d (possibly) be surprised how enlightening it is. Meanwhile, I’ve developed a lot of “tactics” for actively maintaining a “separatist” status, when in a public venue such as the gym. The most successful and commonly used of these is whenever a brother tries to chat me up, invariably about “the big game”, I simply say “I don’t watch TV”. Right there, I’ve completely eliminated any possible common ground which they think we might have, then and in the future.

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        I’m polite with people, even other races, but I don’t assume my pleasant encounter with them on a one-to-one basis from the comforts of a predominately white setting is proof that they like us or that they would be so nice if they outnumbered us or thought they had the upper hand. Never relax when your around others. Never!

  • Bryce Armstrong

    I wish this would be enough to prevent Republicans from incessantly bringing up the Dixiecrats.

    • DonReynolds

      Rockefeller Republican RINOs and Taft Republican Copperheads have always been uncomfortable with the idea of Southerners in the same party, even though some of the more important Republican vote-getters have been in the South. In some ways, the civil war will never be over.

      • Sick of it

        The Copperheads originally supported us, but they were quickly beaten into submission.

      • The Taft Republicans, including among many others, Joe McCarthy, and the southern segregationist Democrats, should have been natural allies. The three main wedges between them were: (1) Race. The northern isolationists were just as egalitarian as the RINOs who were also their mortal political enemies. (2) Bellicosity. The America First Committee never had a chapter in the South, as an example. (3) Economic libertarianism. The northern paleocon isolationists were pretty much so, the white southern seggies actually wanted substantial welfare and income redistribution programs; to wit, Richard Russell’s self-proclaimed keystone accomplishment isn’t his segregation apologetics, but the National School Lunch Act of 1946.

      • Bryce Armstrong

        Why do you suggest that people like the Rockefellers are the RHINOs? This is something that always drives me crazy, THEY are the ones who have stayed consistent with the ideas the Republican party was founded on, not the likes of you and me.

        • DonReynolds

          Do a wikipedia search on the likes of Nelson Rockefeller, David Rockefeller, the Rockefeller foundations…..and get back to me. The Rockefeller Republicans are the Liberal RINO variety and believe in nothing important to the party base.

          • Bryce Armstrong

            So what was Abraham Lincoln, a Conservative?!

          • DAWNOFNEWDAY

            a traitor and a tyrant. That’s what he was.

          • Bryce Armstrong

            Also the most deceitful man to ever hold office in US History. It never ceases to amaze me that WN’s actually support him because they believe he was going to honer his promise to deport the blacks.

          • DonReynolds

            For much of Lincoln’s life…..he was a Whig Party politician. Not really a secret.

            But you are correct, Bryce. Lincoln was a man of his times. Today he would be considered “too conservative to run for public office”.

            Lincoln was a rich lawyer for the Illinois Central Railroad, living in one of the biggest mansions in Springfield. During the Black Hawk Indian war, Lincoln commanded a company of the Illinois militia. During the Mexican War, he was an opponent of the war, what we would call an anti-war activist……which is ironic in light of the civil war experience.

          • Bryce Armstrong

            Its not really all that ironic, the worst peaceniks all lust for civil war. It shouldn’t be a mystery that someone who is progressive like Lincoln would be morally opposed to war, if it concerns other nations, but has no such scruples when it comes to his own people.

            Also note his treatment of the Sioux. When it come to the Native “Americans” scum of the earth Glenn Beck calls American Patriot and Hero, Andrew Jackson ‘evil’ for serving his nations interest against these jihadist, all the while his idol (after MLK of course) gets a free pass.

            I constantly wonder why people assume that Republican party has “lost its way” or that its foundation was in any way a positive thing. I cant think of a single thing the Republican party has done for this country, on the contrary, to me it signals the beginning of the end, EVERY SINGLE THING that is wrong with this country today can traced back to its inception.

          • DonReynolds

            Many people get confused about both political parties, the central truth being that NEITHER party is ideological…..yes, both parties have a LEFT and RIGHT wing.

            The Republican party is not a conservative party, nor is it a Libertarian party, although there are both who belong to the Republican party. It leads to disappointment and mischaracterization.

            I do not expect the Republican party to save this country from the Leftists that run the Democrat party (and live in the White House). Unlike so many others, I simply will not be disappointed in a few months when these new Republican majorities start spouting all kinds of excuses why they cannot oppose Obama or Obamacare or the executive amnesty.

  • Truthseeker

    If a politician actually did stand up for the particular interests of Whites, I’d be more inclined to support him.

  • JohnEngelman

    I do not agree with David Duke, but I would respect a politician who talked to him, as long as he did not agree with David Duke either.

    • Raydonn

      Do you ‘agree’ that the sun rises in the east? Duke is 100% correct, period, end of story. And YES, including and especially on the *forbidden* subject…………..I wish I’d have been at the AmRen conference when he was there.

      • John

        “Duke is 100% correct, period, end of story.” And so are you my friend. I read his book “My Awakening” about 15 years ago when I fully started the process myself. Another of his works, “Jewish Supremacism” is also an excellent read. Dr. Duke talks the talk and walks the walk. For a good example, do a look-up on YouTube for “David Duke, Wolf Blitzer”. Dr. Duke hands Wolfie his rear end in this interview.

      • JohnEngelman

        I am glad that David Duke was allowed to attend an American Renaissance conference as a paying member. I hope Jesse Jackson would also be allowed to attend, if the Rev. Jackson paid his fee. I am also glad that David Duke was not a scheduled speaker. I would not want American Renaissance to be associated with David Duke’s ideology.

        • DonReynolds

          In a country that enjoys freedom of speech, I would like to think that the speaker does not infect the audience with his thoughts. Free speech does not protect the speaker from reply nor does it create an obligation on the listener to agree. That is why people can speak in this country to any audience they care to. There is no reason, John, to fear Free Speech.

          I once shared the same speaker’s platform with Hillary Clinton. I sat next to her eating rubber chicken at the Arkansas Board of Realtors convention in 1980. Bill was running for re-election. She was there to campaign for him and I was there to campaign against him, as head of the Arkansas Small Business Association. It was the only re-election Bill ever lost and he would say it was partly my fault. (In 1984, she wrote me a nice thank you letter for my contributions to her Blue Ribbon Committee on Education……suitable for framing.)

          • JohnEngelman

            I voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996. I would be happy to vote for his wife.

            That is fine, John. I will let you borrow my Hillary Clinton yard sign I saved from 2008. My wife and I originally supported Edwards then got behind Clinton, but by the time of the Texas Democrat convention, my wife had become an Obama delegate.

            I agree totally, 1G25.
            We separated before she went to the convention as an Obama delegate. I managed to recover my clothes, computer, books and papers in October 2008. The only marriage I know of that ended over politics.

      “black supremacist organization” The local HS basketball team
      “Mexican supremacist organization” Local taco stand
      “Jewish supremacist organization” Local synagogue
      etc., etc.

    I wonder if Mr. Scalise has similar contempt for divisive hate groups such as the SPLC or the NAACP? No wait, I’m sure he doesn’t.

  • John R

    Yes, I was surprised that Republicans are standing up for him. Finally they are realizing that their base is White people, and that the liberals and non-Whites who attack them won’t be voting Republican, anyway. Also they are realizing, apparently, that what the news media says and what most people think, are entirely different. It’s about time.

    • Malachy_Vilnius

      Has some type of Rubicon been passed?

      Have Republicans finally realized it is better to stick up for Pro-Whites (or those thought to be Pro-White) than to jettison them off into the dark nether-world??? That by NOT backing down to the P.C. tyrants, the Republicans might actually gain more respect from Whites??? Maybe all the angry callers on Talk Radio have finally gotten thru.

      • No, this is just a matter of the Republican establishment rallying around one of its own.

        • Malachy_Vilnius

          Sigh. You are probably right. I have a feeling things are going to have to get much worse, before they get better. (with the riots in Ferguson though it does seem like we are already well down that path…)

  • DaveMed

    Talking at a Duke event is probably not the best hill on which to die.

    • Ludwig

      Don’t take this as an endorsement of Duke, But if our White leaders had a fraction of his nerve there would be no need for a forum such as this.

      • DaveMed

        Agreed.

      • DonReynolds

        I met David Duke in 1980 after he left the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He spoke at a state university in Little Rock (UALR) and Governor Bill Clinton publicly defended his right to speak. After threats by some of the professors and students, Bill Clinton called out the Arkansas National Guard and the Arkansas State Police to provide security for Duke to speak. One of the local black activists, Say Macintosh, brought food for the Duke gathering, which Macintosh dubbed the “KKK Appreciation Dinner”, including his famous sweet potato pie. Some of the hippie women were arrested when they pepper sprayed some of the state police, thinking they might be Klansmen. David Duke spoke for 45 minutes and never mentioned blacks in any way. At the end of each row of seats was a state policeman in riot gear with a shotgun. Some of the protesters made it into the speaking hall and were removed by police when they became disruptive. Duke was casual and relaxed, hung around after the talk to visit with some in the audience.

          Leftists being violent scum even back then? Guess they have never really been all about tolerance and understanding, right?

            Yeah, check out the Davis Cup Tennis match in 1978 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. I was there when the radical leftist lined up at the exits of the gymnasium and spat on the tennis spectators as they left the building between matches. But there were two funny stories to relate….
            Vanderbilt University expected a much larger protest mob. The NAACP promised to shut down the city of Nashville with 20,000 out-of-town agitators. (Only a few hundred showed up, that I ever saw.) But the University was thoughtful for putting out portable toilets for the protesters, but certain less-well-informed Vanderbilt students painted “Men”, “Women” and “Colored” on each of the portable toilets. Ha Ha. University maintenance crews were quickly dispatched to paint over the words before the march of protesters arrived from the state capitol. For the rest of the day, I smiled when the radicals from New Yawk complained about the wet paint on the doors of the portable toilets. (If only they knew.)
            I followed the kosher camera crew from ABC News as they filmed the march from the state capitol to the Vanderbilt area. (This was soon after a shootout between the communists and the KKK, so everyone was expecting a re-match.) But the amusing part is when the ABC News camera crew asked the Nashville police to arrest me on suspicion of being a Klansman …..which I was not…..not realizing that the Nashville police they were talking to were much more likely to be Klansmen themselves. I could not help but laugh.

    ‘‘One of the many groups that I spoke to regarding this critical legislation was a group whose views I wholeheartedly condemn,’’ he said in a statement Tuesday. ‘‘It was a mistake I regret, and I emphatically oppose the divisive racial and religious views groups like these hold.’’

    What group is he talking about?

    The only group I know of that would fit that description is the NAACP.

      Shortly after David Duke’s release from prison for tax fraud in 2004, he organized a weekend gathering of “European Nationalists”, in Kenner, Louisiana. He proposed a unity agreement, now known as the New Orleans Protocol (NOP). It pledges adherents to a pan-European outlook, recognizing national and ethnic allegiance, but stressing the value of all European peoples. It has three provisions:
      “Zero tolerance for violence.”
      “Honorable and ethical behavior in relations with other signatory groups. This includes not denouncing others who have signed this protocol. In other words, no enemies on the right.”
      “Maintaining a high tone in our arguments and public presentations.”

      Bull Conner used to turn his hose on Blacks. George Wallace once stood in a school house door.

      I see no reason why a return to those kind of attitudes might not happen, especially in light of all the shootings of Cops (symbols of law, order, and civilization) and race riots by Blacks.

      Blacks actions are begging us to return to our old ways…

    Dr. David Duke was never a member of the KKK. Period. He helped found the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in 1974, after graduating from LSU. He left this organization in 1980. Since then he has been active in politics. He was a former one-term Republican Louisiana State Representative, he was a candidate in the Democratic presidential primaries in 1988 and the Republican presidential primaries in 1992. Duke unsuccessfully ran for the Louisiana State Senate, United States Senate, United States House of Representatives, and Governor of Louisiana (1991). Duke also spent almost two years in Federal prison for filing a false income tax return (2003-2004). (The Feds can probably do that to just about any person they dislike.)

    Now we are told that elected officials are not permitted to speak to groups of their constituency that others may object to …..12 years later. I disagree. An elected official can speak to any assembly or group in the country…..including groups of persons we do not agree with, now or later. It is their job to speak to groups and that is what they should do. No one would object if a Liberal or Radical spoke to conservatives…..except for the conservatives themselves…..and probably not 12 years later.

        I can barely conceive the stupidity of someone taken in by the notion that a marginalized, near-nonexistent group like the Klan is still riding around in the backs of pickups, hunting for po, innocent blacks to string up! And that it’s a moral imperative to donate to a group that professes to fight them.

  • This article is a perfect compliment to the ‘Quite Possibly the Most Racist Article You Will Ever Read’ article that was posted on AmRen a couple of days ago.

    If you can’t see how — even in the mostly White, supposedly “racist” Republican party — White men are required to do the Mea Culpa Tour the second it’s discovered that they had something to do with an entity that has anything to do with White people having a voice of their own. Does anyone believe that this article would have been written any differently if it was an AmRen conference instead of the ERUO? Of course, some black guy will come along and recite what many White men have said a million times before at EURO, or AmRen, or some other pro-White entity. He’ll be crowned as an intelligent, brave savior, while the White guys are still required to recant and atone for their evil deeds. This stuff is so predictable I would swear that there is a script for it.

    Republicans really are incapable of pushing forward a new future for racialists. We already know what to expect from Democrats and the Leftist scourge when it comes to manipulating statistics, lying, distorting and hiding evidence, and even being shown to be the epitome of a hypocrite when a spotlight is put on their uncanny ability to coddle the anti-White crowd and always find themselves surrounded by “racists” of the non-White variety. Republicans are supposed to be the opposite of that, but they always seem to be just a more refined, Capitalist-inspired offshoot of the anti-White hordes. They are always on the defensive, and they are always willing to sacrifice any and every White person who wants to protect is own Euro-American history and heritage.

    Republicans are cowards!
    Republicans are sycophants times ten!
    Republicans have really done NOTHING to reverse what has been done to the Western world.
    Republicans don’t have even an ounce of the testicular fortitude it will require to battle the anti-White hordes.
    Republicans only pretend to care when it’s convenient, and their empathy and concern comes and goes and can be charted by looking at the election cycles.

    Just so I’m clear, Republicans SUCK!

    The lame stream media gives plenty of microphone and TV time to black supremacists so what is so bad about talking to white supremacists? Sounds like more of: Blacks killing blacks is OK, blacks killing whites is OK, but whites killing blacks is the return of slavery.

  • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

    Heard this being discussed on the radio in DC a few days ago. Standard beltway type neocon hosts, wringing their hands and going on about what a horrible thing Scalise did (to be fair, I think their disdain for the Bohner faction was a driving factor), and even saying Rs need to be held to a higher standard than Ds. Pitiful.

    On the upside, the overwhelming bulk of the callers were of the “EURO? Duke? So far, who cares?” persuasion.

      It’s not just Republicans, it’s herd Whites who refuse to stand up and speak out for White interests and White rights.

      If enough of us who have a better understanding of what’s at stake do speak out, eventually we may wake up more Whites. I do my part. And, what I’m finding is that a few years ago, many weak seed Whites would try to smear me, but that’s changing as it is, I think, starting to dawn on even the weakest seed Whites that their survival is now at risk and that they’d better start getting inside of the cricle of White wagons.

  • HJ11

    Imagine a Black apologizing for talking to a Black equivalent organization. What? You can’t imagine that? Right. So, why do Whites apologize for being White and talking to groups that are for White interests?

    I guess we can count Scalise out of setting up a Congressional White Caucus to look out for White interests like the Black, Latino, et al. caucuses look out for their kind.

    This article doesn’t surprise me…

    Europeans have been singled out as the most revered, accomplished, reviled group in the world; this paradox can only exist, in the collective mindset of people who work tirelessly to
    promote their own self-interest, while labeling Europeans who work for same, as monsters, fiends, and villains.

    Europeans will likely be scared badly for several generations to come, no other race on earth as had to endure the attack on their collective identity, and forcibly made to favor of other races.

    The subterfuge employed against Europeans by the political class is truly amazing in its scope, scale, and depth.

    • Yes, and it will never be forgiven. We will not forget who did this to us.

    This seems to be the Leftist Liberal attack mode for the new year. I see in related news that the Moms Demand Action gun control group has targeted Alan Jackson and Jeff Foxworthy for agreeing to speak at the National Rifle Association convention on April 11th in Nashville. This is a familiar refrain for the Left…..no one who disagrees with them is allowed to speak in public, or get published, or hand out flyers, or participate in public discussions or debate. ONLY THE LEFT is allowed to speak?

      I cannot help but think the man knows the truth only too well, but chooses not to risk his status in today’s repressive milieu.

      I have a conservative, race realist, online friend originally from Russia whom I met through international Haiku, Senryū, tanka contests.

      At our British meeting, she met, later married a poetry judge from the U.S. They now live in Upper Peninsula MI. It is a good marriage.
      S. is very concerned about what is happening in this narcotized country under the sinister reign of Obama et al., comparing it to the encroachment of totalitarian rule experienced growing up in Russia. She implores me to “do something” to awaken the populace.

      • Pat Kittle

        Thanks, nice story.

        As for “doing something” — there’s no secret combination to fix this mess unless maybe we’re multi-billionaires, because that’s (part of) what we’re up against.

        If you happen know the story of the “Lord of the Rings” you may recall the following scene:

        The humble hobbit Frodo is called upon to save Middle Earth from the overwhelmingly evil power of Mordor. In despair he tells the wizard Gandalf how he regrets being caught up in such a dire fate:
        ————————————
        “I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.

        “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
        ————————————

        Let’s make sure we’ve got our facts straight & maintain a sense of humor & NOT GIVE UP.

        Best regards,
        — Pat
