Will America Take A White Turn With David Duke And Friends?
Written by 

David DukeIs America taking a White Turn in its upcoming national elections?

We’ll see.

According to the Daily Beast, Neo Nazi, former Louisiana legislator, white Supremacist David Duke will be touring 25 states to explore how much support he can garner for a potential presidential bid. The publication has also claiming that “Duke-lites” are priming to run for various elective offices in growing numbers.

While Duke has as much of a chance to be the next President of the United States as does Adolph Hitler, his entry into the national political discussion makes things interesting. For one, his federal felony would certainly be a legal impediment.

One question would be whether Duke would qualify as a Republican or a member of some other political Party as he has done in the past.

Until 2000, Duke was the Republican executive-committee chairman of his Northshore district (that is North of Lake Pontchartrain) although many of the mainstream members of the party were loud in opposition to his political rise.

Should Duke begin to make a stir, one segment that could be impacted is some elements of the Tea Party.

According to Don Black, who has taken a leadership role in the White Supremacy market for years and who is the “Stormfront founder and a radio host, “Many of our people are involved in the Tea Party,” says Black to the Daily Beast. “But much of their leadership is skittish when it comes to talking about racial realities. The Tea Party is a healthy movement but many are too conditioned to run like scared rabbits when called racists.”


While it would be totally inappropriate to paint the Tea Party as a whole as racists and white supremacists or supporters of Duke’s extreme hatred, it is not unfair to ask about some similarities within their respective political ideologies. For instance, here in Louisiana where Duke received a majority of White votes in the gubernatorial election against now ex-convict Edwin Edwards, it is not a stretch to wonder how many of the voters who staunchly supported Duke in Louisiana elections are now active members of a Tea Party.  It would also be easy to assume that many former members of the Black Panthers would be “soul brothers” with current leftist organizations.

Should Duke or his type enter the national or local political arenas, their voices certainly will resonate in some quarters of our society especially with the U.S. and state economies being deep in the tubes. Whether the neo-Duke movement takes off will depend upon how those people who backed him and his associates in the past will denounce them in the future.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
