Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Once Said David Duke Raised "Legitimate Issues"


This is cross-posted at the "Internet Republican Racism Database" at http://republicanracism.blogspot.com/

Just in case you thought Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s ruthless union busting, purge of voting rolls of likely Democrats, slashing of the social safety net, and willingness to serve as the lap dog of the environment- and job-destroying billionaire Koch Brothers wasn’t evil enough, there’s a tape of a televised debate he had with David Duke you should listen to, courtesy of the Daily Kos website.

As the website reports, back in 1992 former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke (who was wrapping up his single term as a Republican in the Louisiana State Legislature) was fighting to get on the GOP presidential primary ballot   The Wisconsin Republican Party tapped Walker as their spokesmen for a debate with Duke on the Milwaukee Public TV program Smith and Company.


In a 1992 debate on Milwaukee Public Television, future Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker said that David Duke raised "legitimate issues."  (Photo from http://occupyforaccountability.org/sites/default/files/u6/Scott_Walker_Gov_Wis_022211.jpg).  

During the chat, Walker went at great lengths to emphasize that while the Wisconsin GOP condemned Duke’s past role as Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan from 1974 to 1980 (after which Duke founded the National Association for the Advancement of White People or NAAWP) it did not condemning the “issues” was bringing up.  “The distinction we're making is not one of saying his issues are extreme, they certainly are not,” Walker said. 

Duke had spent his career making clear that he believed that African Americans were intellectually inferior and crime prone, that he didn’t believe the Holocaust happened, and that Jews were undermining America through their control of the media.  The B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League has compiled Duke’s public comments, such as in a1985 interview for a doctoral student’s dissertation when he said, “What we really want to do is to be left alone. We don't want Negroes around. We don't need Negroes around. We're not asking ­­ you know, we don't want to have them, you know, for our culture. We simply want our own country and our own society. That's in no way exploitive at all. We want our own society, our own nation...."  That same year, Duke wrote in an editorial called “The Black Plague” that appeared the NAAWP News, [A] black...gets a job with a white-owned company. He is the only black at the firm. He works hard, but he's fighting a losing battle against his genes."

Duke was even more blunt in his racial language in an April 23, 1975 interview with the Wichita, Kansas Sun.  White people don't need a law against rape, but if you fill this room up with your normal black bucks, you would, because niggers are basically primitive animals,” he said to the newspaper.  He also had nasty things to say about Jews. “"It's really the Jew Marxists who see the nigger as their instrument, as their bullets, by which to destroy our society."


Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon David Duke, who once said that "niggers are basically primitive animals."  Scott Walker couldn't come up with a good reason why he wasn't a legitimate candidate for president in a 1992 televised debate and failed to mention that Duke was a Holocaust denier. (Photo from http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/50/David_duke_belgium_2008.jpg/220px-David_duke_belgium_2008.jpg).  
Regarding the Holocaust, Duke had already said by 1985 in an Evelyn Rich interview that, “Did you ever notice how many survivors they have? Did you ever notice that? Everybody – every time you turn around, 15,000 survivors meet here, 400 survivors convention there. I mean, did you ever notice? Nazis sure were inefficient, weren't they? Boy, boy, boy! ...You almost have no survivors that ever say they saw a gas chamber or saw the workings of a gas chamber...they'll say these preposterous stories that anybody can check out to be a lie, an absolute lie."
Duke also had made clear in the same interview his belief that Jews had a genocidal intent towards white people.  “"They're trying to exterminate our race. I think, probably in a moral sense, the Jewish people have been a blight. I mean as a whole, not every Jew. And they probably deserve to go into the ashbin of history. But saying that and actually shooting or killing people in masses, are two different things. I'm not advocating extermination. I think the best thing is to resettle them in someplace where they can't exploit others. And I don't think they can live among themselves, I really don't."

All these comments were made before Scott Walker’s debate with Duke.  By the time Duke was trying to enter the Wisconsin GOP presidential primary, his career in the Klan was well-known and the campaign of President George H.W. Bush was battling mightily to avoid the embarrassment of having his name on the ballot.  Political professionals, the Bush apparatchiks would have done opposition research, which they would have shared with Walker.  Yet on Smith and Company, Walker insisted that the political issues Duke was raising were “legitimate.”  Walker briefly mentioned that Duke sold copies of Adolf Hitler’s book Mein Kampf in his state legislative office, but never talked about his anti-black, anti-Semitic views.  Referring to Duke’s ideology, Walker instead said:
“We feel you’re hiding behind some legitimate interests for middle class Americans, welfare reform as far as job protection, job security, issues that are important . . . The key is that you’re hiding behind issues that are legitimate issues but do not necessarily make you a legitimate candidate anymore than in the city of Milwaukee if Jeffrey Dahmer were to stand up . . .”

During his legislative race in Louisiana, his unsuccessful race for governor in 1991, and in his presidential race in 1992, Duke claimed he had converted to Christianity and had put his bigoted days as a Klansman and neo-Nazi behind him. However, like mainstream Republicans today, he ran on racially coded issues, more subtly campaigning on school busing and the supposedly poor state of integrated schools, the crime rate and affirmative action.


Scott Walker during his TV appearance with David Duke.  According to Walker, Duke brought up "some legitimate interests for middle class Americans, welfare reform as far as job protection, job security, issues that are important . . ." Walker didn't mention that Duke also argued that blacks are genetically inferior and worse swastika armbands as an LSU student..  (Photo from http://videos.videopress.com/F5CID5Cg/scott-walker-says-david-duke-rep-a-media-creation_std.original.jpg). 

During the debate with Walker, Duke, brought up one hot button GOP issue of today after another, including even including the so-called war on Christmas and his opposition to the “open border with Mexico.” A viewer who called the show and described himself as a “life-long Republican” told the host he would be “proud” to have David Duke as a Republican candidate on the Wisconsin ballot. Another said, “I think David Duke is right on  I think the only reason they don’t want him to run is . . . he may damn well win.” David Duke mopped the floor with Walker during the show. Only two callers out of about a dozen said they opposed Duke’s views.  It’s clear that if Duke had never put on a white sheet, but held exactly the same beliefs, he might have been won the Louisiana governor’s race (where he got 39 percent of the total vote and 55 percent of the white vote) and perhaps might even have been a serious contender in the Wisconsin presidential primary.  As this blog has pointed out many times, the ideological and rhetorical distance between the Walkers and the Dukes in this country in the past two decades has shrunk to the vanishing point.  (To see the Duke-Walker debate, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wp3a4vEsJY.  See also http://www.adl.org/special_reports/duke_own_words/print.asp and http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/03/10/954858/-Breaking-Old-Tape-of-Scott-Walker-Talking-About-David-Duke-Shows-He-Has-Always-Been-a-Fruitcake).

Well, Mark, I am quite sure that you are going by a pseudonym because your sort is always completely cowardly and lurks in shadows. It must be sad to be so ineffective and marginal. No one listens to someone who relies on ignorant slurs and types in ALL CAPS. You must feel brave and important typing this in your mom's basement. Take a few college courses and read something beyond coloring books. The world has passed you by. Try catching up by acquiring some knowledge. There's plenty of space for that in your small, empty brain.

Michael said...

By the way, I've been to Chicago and New Orleans many times. Both are great cities with great music, great food and great people. No wonder Mark hates them. Mark is exactly the kind of voter the Republican Party is aiming for. That's why this racial coding is so despicable.

CHRISTMAS CARJACKERS in SOUTH AFRICA, NEW JERSEY


The POLITICALLY CORRUPT AMERICAN MEDIA has yet to SHOW U.S. a PICTURE or VIDEO of the AFRO-AMERICAN PERPS!~



http://pix11.com/2013/12/17/man-protecting-wife-killed-during-carjacking-at-nj-mall-suspects-still-at-large/#axzz2nmwyIy1l



There is little DOUBT in my MIND that the "PERPS" look just like their FEARLESS MISLEADER, PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSIEN OBAMA!

This is how WHITE PEOPLE in SOUTH AFRICA have been FORCED to PROTECT their FAMILIES, their VEHICLES and THEMSELVES!




http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/africa/9812/11/flame.thrower.car/





ELECTRONIC FLAME THROWERS became very POPULAR in SOUTH AFRICA shortly after NELSON MANDELA became PRESIDENT back in 1994!



Sadly, BURNING PEOPLE to DEATH seems to be an every day part of LIFE in SOUTH AFRICA!

And I’ll bet you he’s even got a commie flag
Tacked up on the wall inside of his garage.
He’s a snake in the grass, I’ll tell you guys,
He may look dumb, but that’s just a disguise,
He’s a mastermind in the ways of espionage.

In Louisiana, Jefferson Parish sheriff bucks body-cam trend!



CHECK this out before going any farther: http://kansasexposed.org/2014/08/21/wichita-police-officers-who-refuse-to-wear-body-cameras-identified/#comment-12343



But amid a broadening national discussion about police accountability, Jefferson Parish’s top cop has balked at one innovation that’s being employed by more and more law enforcement agencies in Louisiana and beyond: body-worn cameras.



The devices,
which record officer interactions with citizens, have been heralded as a
game-changer in neighboring New Orleans and have been rolled out in smaller
jurisdictions like Thibodaux and Assumption Parish. The cameras, many law
enforcement leaders say, cut down on officer complaints and boost transparency,
particularly in cases involving use of force by police.



But even in
a year in which his deputies have been involved in five shootings to date,
Normand remains an outspoken skeptic about the technology, citing questions
about the cost of storing footage and limitations in the vantage point of most
body-worn cameras.



The sheriff’s biggest concern, however, might be described as philosophical. He
worries — as many other sheriffs presumably do — about what will happen once
the public is invited to review deputies’ split-second decisions.



NAAWP screams “BULL$HYT”, saying that the JPPD and the JPSO has had more than its fair share of POLICE BRUTALITY CLAIMS, going back the days of SHERIFF HARRY LEE!
