Donald Trump Finally Parts Ways with White Supremacist Duke

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Having in the past denied that he knew former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke (they had met), Donald J. Trump on Thursday finally took the plunge and announced he “disavows” Duke’s anti-Semitic comments, made on the latter’s radio show.

Duke said that the Republican elites have been working to undermine Trump just as they worked against him, Duke, when he ran for governor of Louisiana as a Republican in 1991. He took issue with Trump’s former Republican rival Ted Cruz taking money from a “Jewish leftist commie,” saying Jewish financiers are “destroying the Republican Party” by targeting Trump and himself.

“Jewish chutzpah knows no bounds,” Duke told his listeners, and then focused on billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer, a huge supporter of Israel who also supports the “Stop Trump” movement. Referring to Singer and his ilk, Duke said, “I think these Jewish extremists have made a terribly crazy miscalculation because all they’re really going to be doing by doing the ‘Never Trump’ movement is exposing their alien, their anti-American-majority position to all the Republicans. And they’re going to push people more into awareness that the neo-cons are the problem, that these Jewish supremacists who control our country are the real problem and the reason why America is not great.”

That was a bit much, and Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, challenged candidate Trump to take a stand against the Duke ideas. “David Duke’s latest remarks – smearing Jews and Jewish Republicans specifically – are as unsurprising as they are hateful,” the ADL chief said in a statement. “The onus is now on Donald Trump to make unequivocally clear he rejects those sentiments and that there is no room for Duke and anti-Semitism in his campaign and in society. Mr. Trump can and should speak up now. If not, his silence will speak volumes.”

In the past, Trump had been unwilling to confront Duke’s increasingly more outrageous and openly anti-Semitic comments, presumably so as not to lose the support of while males in the South. But eventually Trump released a statement saying he “totally disavows” Duke’s remarks.

“Anti-Semitism has no place our society, which needs to be united, not divided,” Trump said, having himself made his share of divisive comments against Mexicans and Muslims.

Memo to Trump: ADL Info on Hate Groups Coming All Candidates

Monday, February 29th, 2016

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump set off more than a firestorm when he claimed to have “no knowledge about” the Ku Klux Klan and its former leader, David Duke.

He also spurred the New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to spring into action with its own campaign to provide informatio to every presidential candidate (including Trump) on hate groups and other extremists.

The trigger for this brouhaha began with last week’s expression of support for “The Donald” by former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard Dr. David Duke.

Trump disavowed the support on Friday, but in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, seemed to forget the entire affair and also disavowed any knowledge at all about David Duke or the KKK – a stumble that raised a firestorm.

“David Duke is a notorious anti-Semite and racist and his name is synonymous with bigotry,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL’s CEO. “Duke is a perennial candidate for elected office and perhaps America’s best known racist and anti-Semite. He is a former Imperial Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. His message is racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-American to its very core, and he’s clearly exploiting Mr. Trump’s candidacy to get publicity for himself and his hateful ideas.”

ADL’s Center on Extremism monitors and exposes extremists and hate groups.

The group said it is providing for the public at large, including the Trump campaign, information about extremists “so that all candidates can be fully aware of these individuals and have a more complete picture when determining whose endorsements they should accept or reject.”

Greenblatt said the ADL hopes it can prevent white supremacists from using the campaign to “mainstream their bigotry.

“It is imperative for elected leaders and political candidates like Mr. Trump and others in the public eye to disavow haters such as Duke and the other white supremacists who have endorsed his candidacy. By not disavowing their racism and hatred, Trump gives them and their views a degree of legitimacy. Even if it is unintentional on his part, he allows them to feel that they are reaching mainstream America with their message of intolerance.”

Trump Tripped Up But Not Trapped by KKK ‘Shout Out’

Monday, February 29th, 2016

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump walked straight into a mine field Sunday when he told CNN’s State of the Union interviewer that he didn’t “know anything about” former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke.

“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage,” Duke had said last week on the David Duke Radio Program.

The New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) immediately called on Trump to condemn Duke and the KKK. (The organization also followed up its demand by launching a campaign to educate all the candidates about extremism and hate groups.)

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Trump whether he was prepared to condemn Duke and the KKK, as the ADL had asked him to do.

Duke meanwhile had also posted a long post supporting Trump on his Facebook page a few days earlier, together with denials of any current connection with the KKK and self-congratulatory, anti-Semitic harangues about being “the most well-known American who reveals the facts of the Jewish tribalist takeover of our media.”

Trump seemed to be caught unawares, and did a backstep.

“Honestly, I don’t know David Duke. I don’t believe I’ve ever met him. I’m pretty sure I didn’t meet him. And I just don’t know anything about him,” Trump replied. “Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK?” he said. “I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists.”

But after the interview, Trump recalled he had already disavowed Duke and his former racist colleagues at a news conference last Friday – a fact he tweeted after the program.

It’s not even the first time he has done so; Trump also had disavowed Duke in February 2000, according to Politico.

Trump was asked about Duke by reporters at that time and said then that he disavowed him. He responded to a withering storm of criticism following Sunday’s show by sharing a clip of his answer on Twitter.

The exchange precedes Super Tuesday, during which a dozen states, most of which are in the South, are set to go to the polls for primary elections.

Trump meanwhile has picked up two key endorsements, including one from a major player in the South.

U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions endorsed Donald Trump on Sunday at a rally held in his home state of Alabama, saying, “This is not a campaign, this is a movement.” Sessions is the first Senator to endorse Trump.

But he has also already received endorsements over the weekend from Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey, Paul LePage of Maine, and former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

The growing swell of support could be a sign that Republican Party leaders are starting to accept that Trump will likely be their nominee.

“I can guarantee you that the one person that Hillary and Bill Clinton do not want to see on that stage come next September is Donald Trump,” Christie said during his endorsement on Friday.

“They do not know the play book with Donald Trump because… he is rewriting the play book of American politics. He is providing strong leadership that is not dependent upon the status quo.”

Christie said he would lend his support to help Trump from now until the election and then after as well. The remark gives rise to speculation that perhaps he and Trump have discussed a position for Christie in a future Trump administration.

Five Anti-Zionist Doctors ‘Hijack’ Medical Journal to Dump on Israel

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Two of five doctors who hijacked a highly respected British medical journal in August to publish a venomous anti-Israel article also used their email to endorse a video by white supremacist and former KKK Grand Wizard and a  David Duke.

The Lancet, described by the London Telegraph as ”a venerable and well-respected British medical journal, published an “open letter for the people of Gaza ”that condemned Israel’s counter-terror campaign. The “letter” actually was an article.

Other medical publications, most notably the British Medical Journal, routinely allow their authors to exploit their positions to dump on Israel, but the endorsement of David Duke’s video crossed all red lines – except Lancet’s.

The journal’s editor, Dr. Richard Horton refused to apologize for publishing the article co-authored by a KKK enthusiast and told the Telegraph, “I don’t honestly see what all this has to do with the Gaza letter. I have no plans to retract the letter, and I would not retract the letter even if it was found to be substantiated.”

The dwindling anti-Israel crowd, whose soap box get smaller and smaller and smaller as Hamas war crimes become larger and larger, is so intellectually bankrupt that Dr. Horton had to resort to total illogic to back himself. “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand,” he said.

And this man calls himself a doctor?

The David Duke video in question is called “CNN, Goldman Sachs & the Zio Matri, in which Duke claims that “the Zionist Matrix of Power controls Media, Politics and Banking” and that “some of the Jewish elite practices racism and tribalism to advance their supremacist agenda.”

The two doctors-for-Duke are Swee Ang, an orthopedic surgeon, and Paola Manduca, a professor of genetics at the University of Genoa in Italy.

They not only are not embarrassed over their open anti-Semitic statements but actually defend them.

“This is a shocking video please watch. This is not about Palestine – it is about all of us!” wrote Dr. Ang after watching the Duke video.

Dr. Manduca, besides endorsing the video, “forwarded a message alleging that the Boston marathon bombings were in fact carried out by Jews,” according to the Telegraph. In one e-mail, she wrote, “Let us hope that someone in the FBI is smart enough to look more carefully at the clues in Boston and find the real culprits behind these bombings instead of buying the Zionist spin.”

Dr. Ang explained to the newspaper, “I didn’t know who David Duke was, or that he was connected to the Ku Klux Klan. I am concerned that if there is any truth in the video, that Jews control the media, politics and banking, what on earth is going on? I was worried.”

Here is a woman, a doctor, who saw something on the Internet and was worried that “if” there was any truth to it, he was worried.

And this woman calls herself a doctor?

If she was worried about truth in what he reads, she should start with the Koran.

As for Dr. Manduca, she said that she is not anti-Semitic, God forbid, and that her “right of freedom of opinion” justifies her statements.

No, she is not anti-Semitic but in the same breath told the Telegraph, she “does not agree or value the politics of the government of Israel, nor of many others, including Jews in and out of Israel.”

Another author of the article in Lancet is Dr. Mads Gilbert, who told the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet in 2001 that he supported terrorist attacks in the “connect” that 9/11 atrocities was a result of Western foreign policy.

Hordes of Nazis Visiting the Jewish Press, Get Out the Good Kristall

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Last week I published here an article about an international committee that set out to establish, once and for all, what constitutes Holocaust denial. I wrote the story in near-deadpan delivery, believing in the power of the nonsensical assertions on the part of the government official making those pronouncements to provide its own tongue in cheek: the newly accepted definition of a holocaust denier is “anyone who doubts the number of Jews killed, who denies the existence of the gas chambers, as well as anyone who claims the Jews have brought on the holocaust intentionally, to serve their own ends, such as the establishment of the State of Israel, and also anyone who includes the 1939-1945 holocaust among other great tragedies in human history.”

The child of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve long since learned to own my father’s experience and my own consequent complex emotional ties with those dreadful years. I also believe I’ve earned the right to speak out on these issues honestly and fearlessly. There are no sacred cows in my Holocaust meadow.

I also believe the Holocaust is a purely Jewish issue, painfully intimate, like the destruction of two temples we mourn on Tisha B’Av. Who the heck cares what some gentile thinks about Tisha B’Av? In that same vain, who the heck cares if some gentile denies that my grandfather, Chanina Yanover, may God avenge his blood, was murdered in Auschwitz?

But I didn’t add that last paragraph, just relied on the deadpan delivery to deliver the message.

And then the Nazis showed up, at the comments section. I’m saying “Nazis” for shorthand. I’m sure many of them are not Nazis, not even remotely related to any Nazi or neo-Nazi group, but when there’s a wave happening, it tends to obscure the subtle differences between innocent commenters and dedicated followers of the Führer. For sure, my article was cited lavishly on neo-Nazi forums out there, and their readers took the link ride over to our own corner of the Web.

Here’s a chilling one, from Jonna Larsen, of Lyngby, Kobenhavn, Denmark:

“The time is not far away when Jews like Moshe Kantor, president of EJC, Abe Foxman, of the ADL and Zuroff and Cooper from the Wiesenthal Center, as well as a whole bunch of other prominent censorship promoting Jews, will fall victim to the laws they designed themselves. “

OK, very critical but still reasonable. Then she writes this:

“I seriously think of finding a good opportunity to put one or more of these people on trial for their endless slander and hate speech against white people, Christians, whole Nations and other groups and individuals who oppose the efforts of international Zionist Jewry to darken the world with their heinous proposals for censorship and state prescribed enforced history, thereby undermining the very corner stone of Western Civilization.”

Now, that’s Nazi talk, girl, don’t you know that? Don’t you know if you keep talking like that you’ll get a hairy, Chaplin style moustache growing right under your nose? Oh, but she goes on:

“The main part of organized Jewry is a threat to all other peoples on earth wherever it manifests itself politically. Always mongering for war, always (more or less legally) bribing their way in order to get the results they want. More special rights for Jews, including animal abuse and bodily mutilation of infants, more wars for Israel, mass immigration, censorship and hate speech laws for the Goyim.”

And she’s frothing at the mouth at this point, making it difficult to understand which specific Jew things she’s hating.

So that one was truly vile. At that point, our website boss, Steve, who had been fighting bravely to chop off those five-headed dragon messages, was getting a serious case of carpal tunnel syndrome. The last time he had to work so hard to clean up the messages was when I suggested the Turkish head of Intelligence who sold out Israeli agents to Iran deserved a spanking, causing approximately half of Turkey to visit us and express their unintelligible indignation. And before that, he had to fight the anti-Turks, when we ran here a few items by Turkish Muslims who love Israel. man, that caused a stir.

Tehran Cancels Annual Anti Israel Conference

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

Iranian officials reportedly have cancelled an anti-Zionist event held annually in Tehran.

The New Horizon Conference, which was scheduled to take place in November, was cancelled by the Foreign Ministry, according to a report Friday by the Associated Press.

The conference’s lead organizer, Nader Talebzadeh, was quoted as telling the website mashreghnews.ir that the cancellation is “a major mistake on the part of our government.”

The New Horizon Conference, which was first held in 2005, has drawn well-known Holocaust deniers including David Duke. Mark Weber, the U.S.-born director of the California-based Institute for Historical Review attended the conference last year, where he delivered a lecture on “the Zionist Lobby in America” to several hundred Iranian students.

Iran’s former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, caused international outrage by describing the Holocaust as a myth and calling for Israel to be “wiped off the map” at a previous conference.

JewishPress.com #1 News Site for Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

The staff of this excellent website is not sure they should be proud of the stats below, but since the numbers represent irrefutable facts, they felt obligated to share:

It turns out there’s no boycott of The JewishPress.com by the writers and readers of the white supremacist website Stormfront, which include ex-KKK Wizard David Duke, White Power scum, and your garden variety neo-Nazis.

In fact, a quick Google search of that seriously disturbing website would reveal that JewishPress.com is their most quoted Jewish website with more than 74,500 linked references back to JewishPress.com.

The editors of JewishPress.com discovered this curious fact through their monitoring of the “talkback” comments on various Jewish Press articles. Some of the comments on specific articles were so strongly antisemitic, it was difficult to figure out why would people who feel such vehement hatred for Jews be spending so much time on a Jewish website?

But taking a look at their statistics pages, a pattern emerged. Many of the horrible comments were all traced back to Stormfront. Every time they posted a link to a JewishPress.com story on their forum (sometimes a few times a day), their devoted ghouls would follow the link back to the Jewish website to get their fix of Jewish news.

Invariably, the linked JewishPress.com articles represented the website’s staunch pro-Zionist, pro-Jewish, pro-halachic stand – provoking neo-Nazi wrath.

To prove this point, a Google search through Stormfront’s links to other highly popular Jewish, English language websites, revealed that Ha’aretz barely makes it past 10,000 neo-Nazi links, and the Jerusalem Post doesn’t even reach 5,000.

Undoubtedly, the Nazi scum found fewer objectionable ideas on Ha’aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

“If we get quoted so often by people who believe the Jews rule the world, what does that say about who really rules Jewish news online?” joked Stephen Leavitt, the JewishPress.com’s Editor in Chief, who made the statistical discovery.

Yori Yanover, the website’s senior editor, was wondering “how someone could make a buck off of this.” A veteran of Jewish journalism, Yanover suggested: “There must be some advertiser out there who would want our Nazi traffic – the problem is we probably wouldn’t be able to run any of their ads…”

Still, being considered the most quotable and powerful Jewish website by the worst Jew haters must mean the website, which has been growing exponentially in readership and influence since its re-launching in early 2012, has arrived. It’s official, then: for news that provokes the enemies of the Jewish people, check out JewishPress.com.
