    All white hate groups love Trump unconditionally. They consider him a ally. When he said MAGA they correctly heard MAKE AMERICAWHITE AGAIN.

    Excuse me? Perhaps David Duke's remarks at the "Unite the Right" rally escaped you?

    We are determined to take our country back,” Duke said from the rally, calling it a “turning point.” “We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we believed in. That’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back." (Source)
    Yes, the members of hate groups vote.

    Hiding under a hood doesn't strike me as a courageous thing to do, and by the same token, neither does having the sorts of fears white supremacists do. See chapter 22 here.

    "If any real lynching's going to be done it will be done in the dark, Southern fashion."
    -- Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

    "That's all they're out to do is intimidate people. And they do it quite well. If you can't see a person's face, how do you know it's not your neighbor?"
    -- Former KKK member

    The white lunatic fringe don't care what party succors their ideology. At one time, they found comfort among the Democratic party; now they find it in the GOP's leader.

    Just because David Duke says it doesn't make it true. You believe a member of the KKK because you want to believe him. That doesn't make it so.

    I believe David Duke regarding his assertions about the behavior of white supremacists because he was the leader of what is arguably the most widespread and well known white supremacist group in the U.S. Thus, to the extent he's speaking about what such people, in general think and do, he's credible. That doesn't make him credible on everything -- credibility in one area does not grant one credibility in all areas...an economist is not credible on quantum physics, for instance -- but it makes him credible on that particular topic. That is why I believe him.
