Trump Campaign Issues Press Credentials To Anti-Gay White Supremacist Radio Show Host
Via Media Matters:
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign gave press credentials to the white nationalist radio program The Political Cesspool, which says it will soon air an interview with Donald Trump Jr. National civil rights groups have criticized the program for supporting anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers, and white supremacists like David Duke. The show openly states on its website that it’s a “pro-White” program that wishes “to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility.” It is hosted by white nationalist James Edwards, who has claimed that Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream is our nightmare,” “interracial sex is white genocide,” and “slavery is the greatest thing that ever happened to” African-Americans.
Edwards who is based just outside Memphis, Tenn. has featured a wide roster of white supremacists, anti-Semites and other extremists, including David Duke and his KKK affiliated group Stormfront and Holocaust denier Willis Carto.
The Political Cesspool‘s mission statement says it “stands for the Dispossessed Majority” and is “pro-white. The show rejects “homosexuality, vulgarity, loveless sex, and masochism” and believes “secession is a right of all people and individuals.” It add: ‘We wish to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility and beyond to grow the percentage of Whites in the world relative to other races.”
“A lot of their motivation is that they hate Christianity. They hate what we call the WASP establishment … and they’re using pornography as a subversive tool against us. Jews are by and large dominant in the porn industry. … You know, connect the dots and look at the names of people controlling our media, and you find out what the common denominator is. … These Zionist Jews are more interested in subverting the dominant culture, which would be the European culture here in America, than they are in helping us and assimilating into our culture.”

“The reason why America was a First World nation was because we had a First World population, and as we continue to be inundated with people from Third World nations we are going to become a Third World nation. … America is on the verge of collapse, as is Europe, as is the rest of the First World. We have to answer the question of whether white Americans and Europeans are going to survive to see another generation. … Desperate situations call for rash action.”

“I am firmly of the belief that race relations were better during Jim Crow, and even better in the antebellum south, than they are now.”
