From The Hill:
David Duke is encouraging his listeners to vote for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
Duke, a white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, called Trump's victories in Nevada and South Carolina a "historic day," on the "David Duke Radio Program" Wednesday, according to Buzzfeed News.
Do we blame the KKK Grand Wizard?
Of course not, we blame the RNC's Chairman Reince Priebus for his lack of leadership and allowing his Party to be hijacked by the Tea Party bigotry.
As Sam Stein eloquently puts it:
For those hoping to blunt Trump's momentum, the late start on opposition research is no small problem. One operative compared it to not having ammunition at the precise moment when there is a collective realization that a Trump candidacy needs to be shot down. Shauna Daly, the former research director for the Democratic National Committee and the opposition research firm American Bridge, called it "malpractice."
"Not taking Trump seriously as a candidate a year ago was a mistake we all made, so I don't blame his Republican opponents for that. But the lack of evidence that they have been doing thorough research on Trump more recently is malpractice," said Daly.
The Republican Party and the likes of GOP operative Karl Rove were too busy funneling money to stop Hillary Clinton instead of making the attempt to fix their own party. Now they are eating at the Trump Tower Karma Cafe. Rove wrote in an oped for The Wall Street Journal:
The Republican Party will lose the White House, the Senate and many of its House seats if Donald Trump becomes the party's presidential nominee, according to Karl Rove. “If Mr. Trump is its standard-bearer, the GOP will lose the White House and the Senate, and its majority in the House will fall dramatically."
I have been one of Sen. Marco Rubio's biggest critic since he gave his support behind Arizona's draconian anti immigrant law. I felt he had no business as a Floridian Cuban American politician to chime in on what is going on in the border state I live in -- particularly when I know that Cuban immigrants receive privileged amnesty via the wet-foot-dry-foot policy. Cubanos used to risk their lives in shark infested waters, but that is no longer the case since they simply travel through Mexico to get in to our Nation.
But as a brown woman, and hearing what KKK Grand Wizard David Duke is saying about Rubio, suffice it to say that I feel sorry for Rubio.
I implore Rubio to see the GOP for what it is and leave it.
Rather than reward the GOP, it ought to be punished for it's bigotry and lack of leadership. I believe Rubio has the potential to do much better once he sheds the Republican Party. He will think more clearly and not feel obligated to be loyal to a Party ideology that was essentially blessed by extremist Kris Kobach himself back in 2012. The GOP can, however, keep Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz deserves to be devoured by his own KKK cohorts.
