Former KKK leader David Duke is running for a seat on the Louisiana Senate and he managed to poll high enough to take part in a debate on Wednesday. Let’s just say it didn’t exactly go well for him. Duke completely lost his shit on the debate stage and made a total fool out of himself in the process.
Duke was trying to explain how he had only been convicted of tax fraud because he was “targeted by the government.” The moderator, John Snell, set the white supremacist off when he interrupted his pathetic excuse. Duke flew into a rage and began yelling that Snell was a “hypocrite.”
Would you not interrupt me and give me my time?” Duke said. “Look, you are not one of the debaters here, I’m sorry,” he added.
“Let me rebut. Let me rebut,” he continued as Snell tried again to repeat the question.
“See you are not a moderator, you are a typical media hack. You are going to silence me now? You are going to silence me?” he yelled.
Snell finally gave in and let Duke have one minute to respond to the original question.
The moderator also confronted Duke about his anti-Semitism. Duke was asked about a blog post he had written on his website complaining about all the “CNN Jews.”
“Well we have to start talking openly about any subject … and there is a problem in America with a very strong, powerful, tribal group that dominates our media and dominates our international banking,” said the former KKK grand wizard.
He added that Jewish people are donating lots of money to Hillary Clinton. However, he doesn’t have a problem with all Jewish people, just some of them. Because that makes his anti-Semitic vitriol better, right?
“I am not opposed to all Jews. I think there are a lot of great Jews. I think there are a lot of Jews I honor, but let me tell you something — I am against Jews, or anybody else, that puts interests of some other place, another country, over our own country.”
