    The man guiding many of David Duke's talking points for many years is a guy named John Tanton. Tanton is a multi-millionaire into eugenics.

    At one point, Steve Bannon was so involved in eugenics that he wanted to make a documentary about it and give Mel Gibson the lead spot.

    Both Steve Bannon and David Duke subscribe to the same racial and political philosophies. Trump is cozy with Bannon and knowingly spouts political rhetoric that is cooked up in John Tanton's non-profit organizations. And, when Trump ran for office, he denied knowing who David Duke was while Duke and Trump were well acquainted, as you pointed out. In addition, Duke was sending out letters to his supporters during the election, teaching them how to become electors that could support Trump.

    Personally, I would feel more comfortable if Trump would simply admit the obvious. I hate to see his supporters groveling at the feet of the powers that be, claiming they have nothing in common with white supremacists (sic) and then relying on Tanton's talking points, research, and alleged facts about certain political issues. It's almost as silly as people telling me Obama was not a Muslim.

    Gee whiz, people. Get the facts.
    Trump won't admit the obvious, because he knows it would alienate the far right, which is a significant portion of his base.

    It's really easy to be an armchair quarterback. Not so easy when you're they one calling the shots.
    Remember when ... trump refused to even discuss Dukkke and the KKK BEFORE the southern primaries, which propelled him to the nomination ?

    And Trump's "speech" today was horrendous. He had a chance to completely stomp on the far right white nationalist crowd today...and he didn't. Why? Because he knows they are supporters, and at this point, he can't lose any supporters.

    Compare Trump's garbage speech to what the Virginia Governor said, and you'll see the stark difference

    trump's southern strategy last year was to deny Dukkke and the KKK until after the southern primaries ...

    that's a real leader...unlike that Orange oaf that we currently call "the president".

    The Virginia state elections should be interesting 11/7/17. Don't underestimate the hate vote generated by the new face of the GOP, Dukkke and the KKK.

    Expect DEM Northam to have a tough time with GOP Gillespie for governor. DEMs have high votes for the VA lower house ...

    We'll have to see. I already see where the Right loons are blaming today's violence on the left instead of on the Nazis who wanted to hold a rally.
