    KKK leader Duke considers presidential run

    BATON ROUGE, La., July 5 (UPI) -- Former Louisiana lawmaker and Ku Klux Klan head David Duke has begun a 25-city tour to gauge support for a possible presidential bid, The Daily Beast reported.
    David Duke has run before, once as a Democrat in 1988, and once as a Republican in 1992. What party platform is he going to run on this time? May I suggest he try the Stormfront Party this time, as it's members are more open to his sick and twisted political views. Better yet, he should invent a time machine, and travel back to the 1930's, where he can proudly support Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. He certainly does not belong in the here and now, nor in America.

    Look on the positive side - here's a candidate the right wing can really get behind! Finally somebody who says aloud what they think in private.

    And what's that? That only pretentious assholes make baseless claims of racism?

    Speaking of assholes, that's a fine place for you to shove that race card of yours pal.

    I'm thinking he won't get a lot of Obama's follower votes.

    He's got to be out of his mind.

    According to a recent poll, just to cite one example, 46% of Misissippi Republicans favor outlawing interracial marriage.

    I wouldn't be too sure... I think Duke also hates Jews too, so that will win him the Code Pink and pro-Palestinian leftists.

    Isn't that what "Wiggen" wrote earlier? Over in Europe there are many on the hard or extreme right who have suddenly decided they love Jews and Israel but they are also the same type who a few years ago were painting swastikas on Jewish gravestones.

    The one difference between some of the European hard right and US hard right is the view that the Jews are holding God's landing strip in readiness for his next visit to earth.

    Since he runs with the "popular" party of the times, then I suspect he will run as a Tea Party candidate under the GOP banner!
