David Duke and Liberal Brainwashing

I am no fan of David Duke as anyone knows.
He is a talented writer, a forthright and interesting political polemicist and seems to have an engaging personality that wins him many admirers - but at heart the man is a sleaze.
Anyone that would take their followers money and spend it on lap dancers in casino's is not a man who can be trusted.
The leaders of nationalism must repudiate and despise the accumulation of personal wealth as a motivational factor both personally and as an ideological goal.
Therefore spending hard earned, working class supporters financial donations on games of poker in titty bars is a fundamental betrayal of nationalism and nationalists.
Nor am I fan of the KKK.
They were an Anti-Irish, Anti-Catholic, Anti-Slavic racist organisation as well as being Anti-Semitic.
Being of half English and half Irish Catholic, Keltic stock I would have been about as welcome as Obama at a KKK barbecue and cross burning in the 1930's.
I also think that David Duke is essentially totally wrong about his central thesis, which is that the Jews are responsible for the downfall of the WASP elite in the US and the West.
Though academics like Kevin McDonald reveal the ethno-centric activities of Jews in America to build, protect and strenghten their community ties, his work reveals primarily where the far right have gone wrong.
Rather than attack the Jews as a race, religion, media, economic or political elite and for being more intelligent than us, what we should be doing is emulating them.
The moment the whites of the world emulate the Jewish people and adopt the same communal ethos, community spirit and sense of communal identity as the Jewish people is the moment we self liberate our own ethnic community.
The white race has been the architect of its own misfortunes, for it has never had the consciousness of being a community.
That such an ethnic or racial consciousness is essential, in a multi-culturalism system predicated on the basis that every ethnic, racial and religious community has the right and duty to form groups that represent them as a community in order to gain legal, economic and social recognition of issues relating to that community, is obvious.
But we have never done that.
White majorities in our white nations voted for political parties run by our fellow whites who then betrayed our people and nations.
Therefore we are the architects of our misfortune, for the price of the multi-culturalism and selfish individualism created by the political parties we voted for is the destruction of all our own white indigenous communities.
But Nick Griffin was right about what he said about David Duke and his branch of the KKK being non-violent ;
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
In 1974, David Duke founded the Louisiana-based Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a Ku Klux Klan group, shortly after graduating from LSU. He first received broad public attention during this time, as he successfully marketed himself in the mid-1970s as a new brand of Klansman — well-groomed, engaged, and professional. Duke also reformed the organization, promoting nonviolence and legality, and, for the first time in the Klan's history, women were accepted as equal members and Catholics were encouraged to apply for membership.
Therefore Nick was right - and Bonnie Greer, with all her arrogant interruptions was wrong.
The epitome of arrogance is to assume that just because you are from an ethnic minority, that makes you an expert on things like the KKK in America.
Bonnie Greer is not an expert on ' The ideological underpinings of the American Far Right and its organisational and ideological restructuring over the last fifty years'.
It may seem to you as an individual that even attempting to undertake a 'Makeover' for the KKK is a pretty stupid thing to do. But that is what David Duke tried to do.
He really did try and do a 'Gok' on the KKK.
In many ways the work that David Duke did with the KKK was commendable.
He transformed it from a sectarian anti-Catholic, Anti-Irish and violent group to a white nationalist group which now employs carers of disabled white people to produce its robes and ceremonial items, thereby keeping some of the most disadvantaged people in the US white working class above the poverty line.
The photographer Anthony Karen has written about this in the article above ;
" Karen’s photographs show an entirely different side of the far right. He presents a 58-year-old, fifth-generation seamstress he calls “Ms Ruth” and he has photographed her running up an outfit for the “Exalted Cyclops” or head of a local KKK chapter. She gets paid about $140 for her trouble. Karen tells us that she uses the earnings to help care for her 40-year-old quadriplegic daughter, who was injured in a car accident 10 years ago. "
Even the KKK are human after all.
They even burnt environmentally friendly crosses ( shakes head. I know. I know )
So David Duke is not the devil.
Neither is he a Martin McGuniess or Gerry Adams who have killed, and ordered killed, innocent men, women and children.
Nor is Duke a Blair, who started illegal wars and murdered a million Iraqis.
Nor is he a Bush who legalised torture, concentration camps in Cuba and extraordinary rendition.
The primary problem is that the people Nick has to debate with are ignorant.
They only know what they have been told by the media.
No-one in that audience knew anything about the KKK, David Duke or the history of both those things.
They hear KKK and then think 'KKK = lynchings, racism, that film with gene hackman set in the 1960's that was long and shit, Denzil Washington, KKK not nice, BOOOOO'.
That is essentially all they know and how their thought processes evolve in relation to media conditioning.
Therefore they are, essentially, stupid.
Nick says the truth which conflicts with the lies they have been told by the media.
So they believe the lies, even when they are being told the truth.
David Duke and his 'cuddly' version of the KKK is the truth.
Now its time for the stupids to admit they were wrong.
