David Duke: You know who’s looking pretty good for president? Ralph Nader

posted at 5:19 pm on February 29, 2008 by Allahpundit

Audio courtesy of Alan Colmes’s semi-secret blog, whose blogroll is precisely as fragrant as you’d expect it to be. Why would a white supremacist, ahem, “conservative” whose sympathies run towards anti-statists like Ron Paul (go figure) end up taking a second look at Nader? For precisely the same reason he’d have no preference between Obama and McCain. Today’s Klansman is, it seems, a single-issue voter:

There’s an even bigger culprit in this world than white liberals, however. Naturally, we speak here of the Jews. It turns out that what truly animates the white supremacist contingent these days is not racism but anti-Semitism. The black man is of trifling concern next to the “Zionist Occupation Government,” or ZOG, a term that describes puppet regimes of the global Zionist conspiracy. As one commenter on the popular white-power Web forum Stormfront explains it: “The blacks would be a non-factor if it weren’t for the ZOG’s legislations and skullduggery (civil rights act, hate crime laws, affirmative action, welfare, forced integration, etc etc …), allied with a compliant media that promotes black worship.” Thus, when the Jewish Telegraphic Agency published an anodyne article on Obama’s support among American Jews, white-power sites like National Alliance News (“your single source for worldwide pro-White news”) quickly pounced. “Barack Obama: The Jewish Connection” came the breathless headline. (Never mind that Obama has had a rockier relationship with the American Jewish community than has Clinton.) “[U]ltimately he’s just another Jew puppet,” concludes another Stormfront commenter. “I look at his foreign advisers,” adds David Duke. “[They're] Israeli supremacists. He’s even got Dennis Ross!”

Does Ralph Nader, who recently criticized Obama for being insufficiently pro-Palestinian as a U.S. Senator, meet the all-important anti-ZOG rhetorical test? Yes he does.

Who cares what this conehead has to say ?

I actually thought Nader was Jewish.

But I guess Dukey would have looked into that.

He’s a Lebanese Christian, I believe.

Allahpundit on February 29, 2008 at 5:29 PM

AH, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHa!!!!!

Oh, that’s hilarious! Nader supported by Duke! It’s so bizarre it’s…. it’s… surreal?

Frozen Tex on February 29, 2008 at 5:29 PM

Egad.

WayWard Fundamentalist Christian on February 29, 2008 at 5:30 PM

What does Duke do when Ron Paul runs for President as an independant ?

William Amos on February 29, 2008 at 5:30 PM

The blacks would be a non-factor if it weren’t for the ZOG’s legislation

That sounds oddly familiar. “And you are left there, helpless.”

Reaching across the aisle. Very popular nowdays. But, without a blimp or newsletter, he’s toast.

Go far enough right and you shake hands with the far left. Another good example of this.

Blimps aren’t his culture and heritage!

Brothers! Oh, brothers! We have all gathered here, to preserve our hallowed culture and heritage! We aim to pull evil up by the root, before it chokes out the flower of our culture and heritage! And our women, let’s not forget those ladies, y’all. Looking to us for protection! From darkies, from Jews, from papists, and from all those smart-ass folks say we come descended from monkeys!

lorien1973 on February 29, 2008 at 5:37 PM

Dems going after all of the kook vote.

Chakra Hammer on February 29, 2008 at 5:39 PM

Good – now Nader can be targetted with the same brush as the GOP was when Duke was associated with it.

infidelpride on February 29, 2008 at 5:40 PM

Now I feel sorry for ol’ Ralph. What horrible thing could he have done to deserve this creep’s endorsement? I think Dukey should go back to Iran and just hang out there.

You’re right, AP. Maronite.

Ru Paul Conspiracy?

upinak on February 29, 2008 at 5:41 PM

I’m not at all surprised. Duke and his neo-Nazi cohorts are not real Conservatives or rightwingers. They are National-Socialists key word being Socialists. The so-called far-right in the US and in Europe in reality are just racist versions of the Democrats and British Labour Party.

irish_infidel on February 29, 2008 at 5:43 PM

King of the Meth-odites. I hope Nader has enough decency in him to send him his endorsement, and money, back in a bagel truck.

Limerick on February 29, 2008 at 5:49 PM

Now we can stop making comparisons between the Obama endorsement by Farrakhan and a hypothetical McCain endorsement by Duke.

darii on February 29, 2008 at 6:03 PM

It’s been said for a long time that white supremacists prefer a socialist government run by white people to a free republic, and it has been proven multiple times this year. Pay a visit to Stormfront.org (if you can stomach it), and browse through posts regarding issues like the credit economy (“debt slavery”) and free trade.
This, plus the Planned Parenthood fiasco, should end any attempt by the left to paint us as Nazis. It won’t, but it should.

No one is asking the obvious question here.
It’s time for an unscientific poll. Which is worse?
1) receiving John Hagee’s endorsement, or
2) receiving David Duke’s endorsement.

My collie says:

Hagee is certainly more entertaining, donchathink?

CyberCipher on February 29, 2008 at 7:29 PM

David Duke also has kind words for Reagan.

2) receiving David Duke’s endorsement.

David Duke has been adequately marginalized, except for political blogs that insist on making himself relevant. Hagee is growing in numbers and brainwashing people to think that the apocalypse is coming in our lifetime, a very selfish idea if you ask me, and worse he wants to shape foreign policy around this belief. If you ever read Michael Ledeen’s “Machiavelli on Modern Leadership” after reading Leo Strauss’s “Persecution and the Art of Writing” you would agree.

Go ahead evangelicals and christians, read those books and see what the Neoconservatives really think of you.

So obviously I think it is Hagee.

Will people just stop bringing this guy back. Media attention is like crack to him.

Was ‘the Little Boy Who Would be Hitler’ made to squeal like a pig when he was in prison?

Hilts on February 29, 2008 at 9:46 PM

Ok Nader’s got Duke and Osamabama has Farrakan, the hater endorsements are all accounted for.

Alden Pyle on February 29, 2008 at 10:29 PM

This isn’t news, the Greens Party has made plenty of inroads into the White Nationalist movement over the past decade. The Nazis are Nazis after all and for all their Ron Paul love they are much more comfortable with statism.

Plus the two are joined not just by Jew hatred but by thier attempts to ally themselves with Muslims. Both the Green Party and the Aryan Nations protest U.S “Imperialism” in Iraq as well as support for Isreal and blogs like the VNN forums are full of pro-palestine anti-war threads where Green party material is freely passed around.

Rob Taylor on March 1, 2008 at 12:30 AM

… the hater endorsements are all accounted for.

Alden Pyle on February 29, 2008 at 10:29 PM

What?! Christopher Hitchens announced his endorsement, and I missed it! How did THAT happen?

CyberCipher on March 1, 2008 at 1:23 AM

Nader can see eye to eye with Duke.

This moron doesn’t need the media to feed his ego, he has plenty enough morons following his every word on Stormfront. The revere him and Don Black (owner of Stormfront) as gods. Its pathetic.

They’d vote for Jessie Jackson before they’d let a “Jew/Semite” in office. They are so convinced of the “Jew” conspiracy they see “ZOG” behind every corner and peeking in their windows at night.

What hypocrisy by the liberal media. They blasted Ron Paul on his ties to Nazi-sympathetic groups, and rightly so. Yet they turn a blind eye to Obama’s ties to racist groups of the left.

How about a little old fashioned concept of equal opportunity attacks on racists of both the left and the right.

Ron Paul was wrong for associating for taking a photo with Don Black and not returning his $500 contribution.

Obama is wrong from not distancing himself from his Anti-Semitic church pastor, and for not denouncing harsh Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

ericdondero on March 1, 2008 at 10:41 AM

David Duke deserves to be ignored, but at least this story nixed my rather stoopid idea to throw my vote away to Nader.
I didn’t know he was pro-Palestinian; that’s a one issue non-vote for moi.
BTW, Juan Pablo has a long way to go before he gets my chad.

I loved his work in “The Miracle Worker”. No, wait, that was Patty Duke.
