“Among the small number of American newspapers that have embraced Donald Trump’s campaign, there is one, in particular, that stands out. It is called the Crusader — and it is the official newspaper of the Ku Klux Klan,” the Washington Post reports. “Under the banner ‘Make America Great Again,’ the paper’s current issue devoted its entire front page to a lengthy defense of Trump’s message — an embrace some have labeled a de facto endorsement.”

Former Klan Leader Might to Unseat Mere Racist

Steve Scalise, let me tell you something, this is the way I view it now: I mean this guy is a sellout. I mean he’s a sellout. He’s not David. He used to say that he was David Duke of course without the baggage, whatever that means… I might have to run against Steve Scalise because you know, I really might. I mean, I’m definitely going to consider it because its so disgusting to me to see…he got elected on false pretenses.

— Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, saying he might run for office against Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), BuzzFeed reports. Scalise faced questions earlier this month about a 2003 appearance he made before a white supremacist group founded by Duke and called the appearance “a mistake I regret.”

Shutdown Hits Republican Base: KKK Konclave at Gettysburg National Park Is Canceled

NBC10 Philadelphia:

A planned Ku Klux Klan rally at a historic landmark of American history won’t happen due to the federal government shutdown.

The KKK event at Gettysburg National Military Park was canceled due to the government stalemate.

Park officials said they rescinded all permits for special events because of the shutdown that began Tuesday.

The permit had been approved for a Maryland-based KKK group, the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, for a Saturday gathering.

No More Nooses

There’s one thing you can say about the KKK —
They do use the latest technology of today.
It just costs a few bucks
And it mounts on a pickup truck,
And you can kill Muslims or Democrats with your X-Ray death ray.
