Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today former KKK leader David Duke announced he’s running for U.S. Senate in Louisiana on an explicitly white supremacist platform … citing Donald Trump as his inspiration. Duke was one of many white supremacists to applaud Trump’s speech, and the RNC ran a white supremacist’s tweet on their Jumbotron during Trump’s speech. The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin swooned that Trump “laid out an American Manifesto for our troubled times” and “forcefully and repeatedly cemented the image of the GOP as the pro-police party.” Weave those threads together and you have police as the occupying army of white supremacy … exactly as Black Lives Matter have been protesting. With progressives, libertarians, and even conservatives condemning Trump’s speech, did the Republican Party declare itself the White Supremacy Party this week?
