Donald Trump won the Republican nomination by willing take his racism farther than his opponents. Immigrants coming from foreign countries were ‘murderers and rapists.’ Trump’s own tagline, Make America Great Again, hearkened back to a time where there were fewer civil rights and opportunities for minorities.
Tucker Carlson says incredibly racist things nightly. The Fox host has been pushing ‘the great replacement theory’ regularly. David Duke likes what he’s hearing from both men. In fact, the former KKK leader and failed politician says that he inspired them.
During a recent podcast, Duke said of Trump:
“Let’s just say he ran on the David Duke platform. He certainly wasn’t able to implement very much of it as president. And he definitely didn’t talk about the fundamental issues like we talk about. He believed — and maybe he was right in a way, in terms of his ability to get elected — he believed that he couldn’t get elected if he just laid out the fact that this tiny Jewish racist, ultra-racist, ultra-supremacist minority has supremacy over mainstream media outlets and social media. Jews, they’re Jews, Jews, and more Jews, and they’re all connected.”
Duke is also excited about Carlson’s increasingly racist rhetoric. “How could it be that I’m an evil guy, when all of the fundamental things that Tucker says, the fundamental things he says — except for the fact they don’t dare talk about the real truth of the real racism that dominates this country, the Jewish racism that dominates — isn’t that, that’s an amazing take, too, isn’t it,” Duke asked. “Tucker’s been around a long time, too. He’s been around from the 1990s, 2000s, and in his career, 2000s. And he finally in the last three or four years — somewhat also with the Trump campaign — but he’s finally come around to start even using the word ‘white people’ in any context.”
