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.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
