H/T Booker Rising - On "Fox News Sunday", the new chairman of the Republican National Committee, said his party must do a better job of courting candidates and voters who support gay marriage and are pro-choice. "I think that's an important opportunity for us, absolutely. Within our party we do have those who have that view," Mr. Steele said. No problem there.
What jumped out at me was that Mr. Steele's victory has incensed David Duke, the former Louisiana State Representative and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. David Duke, a convicted felon who remains a white supremacist, had the gall to call Mr. Steele a "racist."
"I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party," the racist, conservative Republican said. "This will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, 'To Hell With the Republican Party!' And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!"
Referring to Mr. Steele as "Obama junior", Duke cited Steele's positions on gun control, affirmative action and the death penalty in a sometimes rambling condemnation posted on his personal Web site. He also called Mr. Steele a "servile dog of Israel". No surprise there, given that Duke is also anti-Semitic
My Reply.....Forget David Duke we need to throw out the bums at The Council of (RACIST) Conservative Citizens ...Ohh and there supporters
Who are the Counsil of Conservative Citizens?
From Wikipedia -The CofCC considers itself a traditional conservative group opposing liberals and neo-conservatives and they also seek to promote some of the ideals of the Confederate States of America. Its specific issues include states rights, race relations, and conservative Christianity. They have criticized Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Frankfurt School on their website. Consistent with paleoconservatism, they regard American culture as an offshoot of the European cultural tradition. The Council of Conservative Citizens is currently fighting against immigration by non-whites, affirmative action and racial quotas, interracial marriage, homosexuality, forced busing for school integration, and gun control. The CofCC also looks favorably towards European nationalist and anti-immigration groups such as British National Party, Front National, and Vlaams Belang.
