    A little bitter pill for the Dem Race-Baiter Nutters on this Board. And you know who you are. ;)


    The Democratic Party is facing an awkward problem Thursday because white supremacist David Duke has endorsed a leading candidate in the Democratic Party’s primary race for a New York House seat.

    Duke says he’s endorsing Charles Barron, the leading candidate for the new 8th district primary on June 26, because of their shared enmity toward “zionists.”

    Barron is an African-American city politician who has been slammed as an anti-white racist and as a Jew-hater. However, he’s already got the endorsement of the retiring Democratic congressman, Rep. Edolphus Towns.

    If Barron wins the June 26 primary, he’s a shoo-in for election in November because the district is overwhelmingly Democratic.

    His election would be unnerving for many Democrats, including Jewish Democrats. Recent polls say that traditionally high support among orthodox Jews for the Democratic Party is declining toward 50 percent.

    Duke’s endorsement of a Democrat also muddies routine claims by progressives that many conservatives and libertarians are motivated by racism. GOP supporters say their beliefs are motivated by American idealism and old-style liberal ideas of tolerance and freedom.

    In recent days the Democratic establishment, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, has reacted to Barron’s advance by supporting his rival, Hakeem Jeffries, a state assemblyman.

    Duke is a famous racist who ran as a Democrat and as a Republican in multiple Louisiana races during the late 1980s and early 1990s...

    Apparently you're wrong. Did you miss "In recent days the Democratic establishment, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, has reacted to Barron’s advance by supporting his rival, Hakeem Jeffries, a state assemblyman"?

    No your wrong.... he said "Dem Race-Baiter Nutters on this Board"

    We all already know New York Sen. Chuck Schumer has no integrity, we want to know what the "Dem Race-Baiter Nutters on this Board" who always throw Duke in our faces have to say.


    My guess is they have zero integrity as well .

    Well well well. IMAGINE that, democrats racist, who knew? I mean nothing in history shows this. Liberals try to portray Dixiecrats as republicans, but it's not true.

    Most stayed with the democrats, hence the fact that some southern state legislatures are just now getting republican majorities, like TN.

    I think it was like 6 years ago they had the first republican majority. Has to do with republicans fleeing unions.

    Duke is a non-entity. Democrats liked him because their dirty tricks squad managed to use him as a whipping boy for intolerance while democrat senator Robert Byrd was using the N word and bragging about being a member of the KKK. Anybody can find out that democrats were in charge when the KKK was active.

    Bragging about being in the KKK? Cite? He left the organization about the time Duke was born and has repeatedly stated the association was a mistake.

    Well they also downplayed his role. Byrd was alot higher than what we were told officially as a guy that just signed a few people up. Strom Thurmand said he made mistakes and even had awards given to him WHILE he was a dixiecrat.....from the NAACP, yet he was always tainted a racist, while a Klan member wasnt and it was for completely partisan reasons.
