    From the link
    Knight continued, “Now, at the time, I was a prominent person in state politics. I was on the radio, I was doing campaigns. Steve knew who I was, but I don’t think he held it against me. He knew I lived by his street and that I was active in our community. And I didn’t see a problem with having him speak.”

    “Steve came in early on the first day of EURO, spoke for about 15 minutes, and he left,” Knight recalled. “He didn’t hear David speak remotely to the crowd.” Knight also said that he does not have video of Scalise’s remarks nor does he know if video of the speech exists.

    The crowd there was a “mixed” audience for Scalise, mostly local, and partly “people who are concerned about the survival of their race,” he added. “The thing is, I don’t think Scalise knew anything about EURO, about that latter group.”

    Knight said, repeatedly, he regrets being part of a political headache for Scalise more than a decade after he issued the invitation, and insisted that Scalise does not share his views on race.

I question how he could be friends with a neighbor that associates with racist groups and known racists without knowing that that person is a racist. I question his veracity when he states he did not know what the group was. I question his professionalism if he did not know what the group was. I question his judgement if he knew what the group was and spoke anyway. I question his fitness as a leader of our country if he either did not care that the group was racist or did not know the group was racist
    You are implying many things, ask good questions but it appears they were all answered in the link? What am I missing here?

    They are all not answered in the link. The neighbor of Scalise is known white supremacist that had direct connections to David Duke. From Knights own statements Scalise knew that. Why would he agree to speak at an event for an organization that he knew his white supremacist neighbor and compadre with David Duke belonged to? That question is not answered. How can Knight and Scalise make the statement that he did not know EURO to be a white supremacist organization when the person who asked him to come speak at the event (Knight) was a white supremacist and friend to the most notorious white supremacist in LA politics? That does not make sense. Why would he not hold being a white supremacist against Knight particularly being a conservative politician with aims at higher office? That does not make any sense to me either. Both him and Knight make the claim that he (Scalise) did not know this was a white supremacist group...really...if he didn't know he damn sure should have given the fact that the person who invited him to speak at the event is a known white supremacist and friends with the David Duke the most notorious white supremacist if not in LA then whole nation. Again that makes no sense and Scalise needs to us why we should believe that.

    Yet, it's our side that is causing the "war on women." Most of the liberal platform is false outrage. Most of the conservative platform is trying to correct themselves so that liberals don't have false outrage. However, I do know that a big portion of the conservative platform is false outrage within outrage. Though, it's usually a lot smaller compared to what the liberals are doing.

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Krauthammer called for Scalise to step down from leadership.
    Red State's Erickson was even tougher on Scalise .

    Valid points. Thank you for excellent points to consider.

    Seems to me that the politician's treatment should be about the same. Shouldn't it?
    Obama didn't make a speech to a hate group. He attended a church that the right-wing wants to hate, but of course that, like all the other lies that the right-wing tells went no place as well.

    Yeah; like Fox News does every day. You're not talking about credible journalism. You're talking about muckraking and Yellow Journalism. It's just exploitative.

    Yup, a church with a preacher whose most famous quote is "God d*** America!"

    No, I'm talking about "respected" journalists.

    The man was talking about the sick contradictions this country chooses to live with. So, please.
