It's Official: The KKK Are Endorsing Donald Trump

I mean, we all assumed, right? The KKK just made it official by endorsing Donald Trump for President of the United States in "The Crusader," a newspaper affiliated with the Klan which fancies itself as "the premier voice of the white resistance."

The Trump campaign is making it clear it doesn't want the endorsement though, even going so far as to issue this statement: "Mr. Trump and the campaign denounces hate in any form. This publication is repulsive and their views do not represent the tens of millions of Americans who are uniting behind our campaign."

And Don Jr. even got in on the denials when attempted to distance his daddy's campaign from the KKK by tellingRoss Kaminsky of 630 KHOW Denver that David Duke (the former KKK leader and Trump supporter) "deserved a bullet."

Donnie Jr. doth protest too much, methinks.

http://www.snopes.com/2016/11/02/kkk-newspaper-backs-donald-trump/ Except it is a lie, it isn't an endorsement. "It’s Official: The KKK Are Endorsing Donald Trump" <- That is a lie. "The KKK just made it official by endorsing Donald Trump for President of the United States..." <-- complete bullshit. I mean, really... you should vet this shit or something before screaming it.. err posting it as fact.

" According to the Washington Post, editor Thomas Robb averred that the Crusader's encomium to Trump didn't constitute an official "endorsement" of the Republican nominee: [Robb said] that while the Crusader wasn’t officially endorsing Trump, his article signaled the publication's enthusiastic support for the Republican billionaire's candidacy. "Overall, we do like his nationalist views and his words about shutting down the border to illegal aliens," Robb said. "It’s not an endorsement because, like anybody, there's things you disagree with. But he kind of reflects what’s happening throughout the world. There seems to be a surge of nationalism worldwide as nationals reclaim their borders." Yea they did everything except "officially" endorse him.

@normalfreak2 : "Officially endorsing" a candidate and the editor supporting him and deciding to vote for him are two entirely different things. The title of this article reads, "It’s Official: The KKK Are Endorsing Donald Trump." It is a total lie. For one, they [the KKK] did not do so. For two, the newspaper and the organization [KKK] are not synonymous. Just admit it, this entire article is libel.

They just support him without endorsing him. You know like Paul Ryan saying he can't endorse Trump yet votes for him anyways. How is voting for someone NOT endorsing the candidate?

The Police Union supporting him should've been a bigger story. We already knew white nationalists love him.

what race-baiting has Trump said? (honest question because I'm not a trump-supporter) was it the time he that called Paul Fray a "fucking jew bastard"? called young black men "super predators that "need to be brought to heel"? Called Ghandi a 7-11 gas station operator? Participated in a scripted joke whose punchline is, That he was late because he was running on "CP time" (colored people's time fyi)? Said he had experience dealing with wild men when they get off the reservation? Called a middle easterner a "sand nigger"? Blacks and muxlims "professional never-do-wells"? oh yeah.. those were all Hillary.

I don't like either candidate, so this election, I feel I'm pretty close to being an unbiased observer. So for curiosity's sake, I'll research one or two of these remarks attributed to Hillary Clinton and see what I find. I already know of her "super predators" that need to be "brought to heel." That was, indeed, a racist, fear-mongering statement, and it points out one of HRC's weaknesses: She'll morph herself into saying almost anything her audience wants to hear. I also remember that horrible "CP time" joke. I didn't think that was an indication of racism (it was told on stage among blacks, not in private among whites, as you'd expect for a joke with racist intent) but as an example of really bad judgment. As far as Trump goes, I think the worst racist statement he's made as a candidate was about Mexican immigrants, which I think everyone knows by now: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." I agree with Trump supporters that this statement has been distorted in its usual retellings. Trump wasn't speaking about Mexicans generally or Mexican Americans; he was speaking about the worst of down-and-out Mexican society that, Trump claims, Mexico is sending over the border (whether that's actually happening is another matter). ... All right, enough of me yakking here. Lemme look into one of these comments attributed to Hillary Clinton and get back to you. I'll go for the "sand ni**er" one because I find that the most shocking. Update to follow soon.

Okay, so this didn't take long. Hillary Clinton did not call a Middle Easterner a "sand ni**er."  What happened was this: Wikileaks released an email written by Clinton to which she attached an English translation of an opinion piece written by an Israeli novelist that contained the term. In the piece, the term is used to convey how a man who was left to die on the side of the road may have been viewed by bigoted Israeli authorities; the author was not using the term to promote the racist view, he was trying to convey a mindset he finds reprehensible. So no: Hillary Clinton absolutely did not call a Middle Easterner a "sand ni**er." I'll say what I said above about a similarly inaccurate charge made by Grendel: This is the stuff of unethical, partisan politics.

Votes are votes to Donald? Really? You don't think Clinton or any one of the weasels will take any vote they can get? Why does this great society let our elections turn our brains to mush?

This was a post about Trump who has been known to display some pretty nasty racists tendencies. If this was a post about BleachBit officially endorsing Clinton, I would have written something very similar. It's not a surprise to anyone here that Trump and Clinton are horrible people who don't care where their votes come from, as long as they win. I really thought we were all on the same page with this one.

Yeah, but the $20K the KKK gave Hillary is a non-issue..as is Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon endorsing Hillary. Or the time Hillary said it is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan.

Sheesh, Grendel. That's a pretty selective re-telling of events there, isn't it? I had to Google the Clinton-KKK thing to figure out what you were talking about. For anyone curious: Hillary Clinton never said "It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan" (which is why, I suppose, Grendel didn't use quotation marks). What she actually said was "It is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without Robert Byrd. He was not only its longest serving member. He was its heart, its soul, and it’s historian.” This was in a eulogy of West Virginia senator Robert Byrd, delivered in 2010, by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Yes, in the 1940s, when he was in his 20s, Byrd was a founder of a local West Virginia KKK chapter. His involvement with the KKK was brief--one or two years, in his retelling of hit, and he soon regretted it. In 2005, he said: "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened." How that sequence of events could become "Hillary said it is almost impossible to imagine the United States Senate without an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan" is the stuff of unethical, partisan politics. Not good, Grendel. ~squirrel scowl~

C'mon, Grendel: When a colleague you've served in the senate with dies--someone who's served longer than anyone else in U.S. history, no less--it's customary and appropriate that you say some kind words. I don't find that hard to understand and I'm suprised, frankly, that you do. Actually, I don't think you don't understand this. I think you're waist-deep in partisan politics and it's skewing your judgment on this matter. No slight was intended in the comment about quotation marks, by the way.

So,, eulogizing an ex-Exalted Cyclops is fine as long as it's YOUR Exalted Cyclops...got it. (And yes, I know the proper use of quotation marks).
