White Supremacists Support Donald Trump’s Message
Donald Trump earned the support of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke last year when the onetime Grand Dragon said he thinks the presidential candidate’s views are even more radical than his own. The endorsement and plea to be vice president have all been things Trump was slow to disavow, blaming an earpiece malfunction, but that hasn’t stopped the Trump campaign from bringing in a lot of white nationalist support.
Trump’s California KKK delegate, William Johnson, might have pulled his name from the delegate list at the campaign’s request, but that hasn’t stopped other white nationalists from lining up to support TrumpT.
“[H]ere is what they don’t know: we have more delegates!” the American Freedom Party wrote on its Facebook page last week, Mother Jones reported Thursday.
“Right now people are still a little bit afraid because they will have the same reaction that happened to me,” Johnson said. “We just have to give it a few more months before people feel comfortable.”
Johnson has said in the past that Trump’s white nationalist message will modernize the KKK by making racism seem more mainstream.
Make AmeriKKKa great again, huh?
