Former Grand Wizard of the Klan David Duke is defending Donald Trump's attack on U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel in a manner that probably won't help Trump, at least not with an audience Trump needs to win.
As David Duke is wont to do, he defended Trump on his radio show by blaming "the Jews."
The way the mainstream media has gone after Trump, Duke opined, is "very illustrative of the Jewish tribal nature ... like a pack of wild dogs."
"When they go after someone they see as a threat to the Jewish agenda, as the neocons see Trump as a threat as a non-interventionist," and Trump's national security advisers are "almost all non-Jews," he continued.
While Duke says the media is united in a grand Jewish conspiracy against Trump, he does see a silver lining.
At the end of the clip, Duke remarked, “Wow, I think this whole Trump University case, really, if we exploit it, can really expose the entire Jewish manipulation of the American media, the American political process, control of politics in America and truly how they are the dominant and dangerous power that exists in the United States.”
He may not necessarily be wrong in the sense that he and his supremacist colleagues can exploit the case for their own purposes to recruit new followers and believers.
The belief among white supremacists that they can use Trump's candidacy to legitimize their views and expose a grand conspiracy is why Donald Trump will cause a great deal of harm to society even if he doesn't win in November.
Trump is the presidential nominee of the Republican party and his popularity among hate groups will swell their ranks. And they won't go away when Trump does. They will still be around after Trump returns to his golf courses and they will blame women, the media, Jews, Muslims and whoever else for his defeat.
The next question is how violent their backlash will be.
