From audience members who shout, “white power” at his rallies to his misogynistic remarks, Donald Trump is making a splash with his conservative followers.
For instance, not only did David Duke announce his support for the Teflon Don, but a Neo-Nazi website, The Daily Stormer has, as well.
So, what do you say, conservatives? How eager are you to lay in a bed full of Nazis?
Trump and the National Socialists
Trump began his campaign by calling undocumented Mexican immigrants “rapists.” Racism has been a huge feature of his campaign and that blatant, overt racism — as opposed to the coded speak of the other Republican candidates — is part of Donald Trump’s draw.
Not only did he manage to eek an entirely white crowd out of a town that was majority black in Alabama, but he’s single-handedly shifted the discourse towards gutting the 14th Amendment, proving that the Constitution is absolutely holy and writ in stone to conservatives, except the parts that aren’t.
Thus, David Duke wasn’t the first racist to announce his support for Trump, but he was certainly the most well-known:
So this is a great opportunity… although we can’t trust him to do what he says, the other Republican candidates won’t even say what he says. So he’s certainly the best of the lot. And he’s certainly somebody that we should get behind in terms, ya know, raising the image of this thing.
And now, David Duke isn’t alone: The Daily Stormer announced its support for Donald Trump, as well:
So, having thought it through and looked at the situation for the 12 days since Trump announced, I am ready to fully endorse him as the most viable current candidate for President.
Again, this doesn’t mean I endorse all of his positions or even him as an individual person, but I do believe that having him as President would at least give America some time to stand back and try to figure some things out.
I urge all readers of this site to do whatever they can to make Donald Trump President.
I doubt that this will torpedo Trump, but in the very least, the support of neo-Nazis has effectively rendered Godwin’s law moot when talking about him.
