Klansman David Duke, Warns Republicans: Back Steve Scalise, Or I’ll Name Names
AFRICANGLOBE – David Duke, the former head of the Ku Klux Klan, sent out a somewhat ominous message to Republican Party operatives to treat Rep. Steve Scalise fairly, or he’ll start naming names of others in the political arena with whom he’s met and maintained ties.
“If Scalise is going to be crucified — if Republicans want to throw Steve Scalise to the woods, then a lot of them better be looking over their shoulders,” Duke said, Fusion reported.
He intimated that he’s huddled with politicos in both Republican and Democratic parties, and the current atmosphere swirling about Steve Scalise — the incoming majority whip who once spoke before Dsvid Duke’s white supremacist European-American Unity and Rights Organization — is “all bull [expletive],” and “insane,” he said, Raw Story reported.
“Why is Scalise being singled out? I don’t know,” he said, Raw Story reported.
“He was just going [to the EURO conference in 2002], obviously, to tell voters about some of his initiatives on tax matters. That’s what it’s all about. And I think it’s insane, this whole process.”
Steve Scalise, meanwhile, has called EURO, the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, an “abhorrent organization” and he was not aware of its white supremacist bent when he appeared to speak in 2002.
