David Duke, one of the best known grand wizards in the history of the Ku Klux Klan, recently stated that he supports Trump for president. When asked if he would “disavow” this support, Trump states he knows “nothing about white supremacy” or David Dukes. Two questions: (1) If he really is unfamiliar with white supremacy, Dukes, and the KKK, can America afford to have a president who is ignorant of one of the longest standing, hate filled, racist groups in our history? (2) If he’s not ignorant but, in fact, is familiar with white supremacy, Dukes, and the KKK, can America afford to have a president who demonstrates such tolerance for racism? You can’t have it both ways, Donald. Either you are ignorant of one of the most intolerable evils of our culture, or you are not ignorant of it and you do support it.
I have made my disdain for this man’s campaign for president very clear. We’re on the verge of Super Tuesday. This man promises to make America great again. America is already great. What Trump will deliver is not greatness; he will propel our country backwards for many decades. He speaks of presidential reign, not responsibility. He promotes violence and intolerance. He debates by insults, and he has yet to present a comprehensive strategy of changes. He can barely put two sentences together without glaring grammatical gaps.
Trump has an abundance of money and an incompetent barber.
I’m proud of being an American. I’m proud of the extraordinary social gains we’ve made in the last fifty years. Are we going to hand over our personal freedom and our national integrity to someone who refuses to stand up to racism?
