Ex-KKK Leader and Current Louisianna Senate Hopeful David Duke: Hillary Clinton Deserves The Electric Chair

david-duke-2

 

Last night candidates vying for a Louisiana US Senate seat met on the debate stage in New Orleans on Wednesday night. Among the candidates — which included Republican frontrunner John Kennedy and Democratic candidate Caroline Fayard — was pasty faced former Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke.

Business Insider reports:

Duke invoked Trump’s name early and often during the debate, and compared himself to the GOP nominee while complaining that he is unfairly criticized for his controversial views. “I will be Donald Trump’s most loyal advocate,” Duke said.

Trump has repeatedly disavowed Duke’s support and, more recently, that of a KKK publication that endorsed him this week. The debate quickly went off the rails when Duke got into an extended shouting match with the moderator.

In defending some unsavory remarks about Jews, Duke said “I’m not opposed to all Jews … there is a problem in America with a very strong, powerful, tribal group that dominates our media and dominates our international banking.”

He also accused such groups of controlling the reins of American foreign policy, citing the civil war in Syria while attempting to draw parallels between those groups and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. “The lady should be getting the electric chair, being charged with treason,” Duke said.

After Emancipation, after Woolworth’s, after Martin, after Malcolm, after the Civil Rights Act….after all that and so much more, now in the supposedly “enlightened” 21st Century, we are witness to this. I cannot adequately express my repugnance and revulsion.

 

 

Infamous Klan Leader David Duke “Unofficially” Endorses Donald Trump: Calls A Vote Against Trump ‘Treason’

David Duke KKK Endorses Trump

David Duke the American radical right, neo-Nazi, longtime Klan leader and close personal friend of the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins called for his supporters to rally around Donald Trump’s presidential campaign after his wins in Nevada and South Carolina, and said casting a vote for another candidate is “treason.”

Duke, a former Louisiana state representative and one of the most infamous grand wizards of the Ku Klux Klan, said on his Wednesday radio show that Trump is running the “most insurgent campaign in recent American history” and railed against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your (white) heritage,” Duke said about Cruz and Rubio, in a segment first  “I’m not saying I endorse everything about Trump, in fact, I haven’t formally endorsed him. But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action.” (Actually, that is an endorsement)

Duke also issued a call to action for listeners to volunteer on Trump’s campaign.

“I am telling you that it is your job now to get active. Get off your duff. Get off your rear end that’s getting fatter and fatter for many of you every day on your chairs. When this show’s over, go out, call the Republican Party, but call Donald Trump’s headquarters, volunteer,” he said. “They’re screaming for volunteers.”

Duke continued: “You’re gonna meet people who are going to have the same kind of mindset that you have. Educate them.”

David Duke has built an international reputation as the American face of white nationalism and pseudo-academic anti-Semitism. In his various incarnations, Duke has been a neo-Nazi, a major Klan leader, a slick far-right politician and — most recently — a professional lecturer and author traveling the world to warn of a global Jewish conspiracy and seek the separation of the races.

What a sweetheart.  No wonder he and Tony Perkins are in love.

 

Louisiana Picks Democrat as Next Governor, Throws GOP David Vitter Into The Used Diaper Bin

Vitter Loses Election

With Republican Piyush “Bobby” Jindal term limiting out of his job as Louisiana Governor, Democrat John Bel Edwards won the runoff election for Louisiana governor last night, defeating , Republican “Diaper” David Vitter, and handing the Democrats their first statewide victory since 2008.

Each runoff contender sought to tie his opponent to an unpopular figure in Louisiana: Edwards claimed Vitter would represent a “Jindal third term,” while Vitter tagged Edwards as an “Obama liberal.”

But the rabidly anti-gay Vitter was also hit with repeated attacks for a 2007 prostitution scandal in which he apologized for a “serious sin” after he was linked through phone records to Washington’s “D.C. Madam.”  Also Vitter had  been conducting a lengthy affair with a New Orleans prostitute.  (It was later revealed by one of his call girls that Vitter liked to be dressed in diapers during his sessions. (See diaper story here). In typical hypocritical Republican “Family Values” fashion however, Vitter failed to resign his seat after having called upon to do so.) Vitter also had trouble uniting Republicans after a blistering primary competition in which Vitter trashed two GOP rivals and received heavy criticism for his scorched-earth political style. And his campaign was accused of ethical improprieties after allegations it secretly recorded political opponents.

Edwards’ win offered a rare pick-up of a governor’s seat for Democrats in the conservative Deep South. After his loss, Vitter immediately announced that he wouldn’t seek re-election to the U.S. Senate next year, creating a new competition for what had been a safe GOP seat.

Vitter also announced he will  began looking for a Nanny.

Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Refuses To Obey Supreme Court, Implies Gays Are Pedophiles

Jefferson I cornpone Bigot

 

A routine order issued by the Louisiana State Supreme Court on Tuesday transformed into a “opinion melee” among four of the court’s members

The opinion of the court in Costanza v. Caldwell is a three-page order acknowledging that the Supreme Court has ruled that “the State of Louisiana may not bar same-sex couples from the civil effects of marriage on the same terms accorded to opposite-sex couples.” but onnce again haters had to hate and  four separate opinions were written by the court’s members with one of whom claimed that he is not obligated to follow the United States Supreme Court’s decisions.

From Media Matter:

Justice Jeannette Theriot Knoll, while conceding her obligation to follow the Supreme Court’s decision, wrote separately to complain about the “horrific impact these five lawyers have made on the democratic rights of the American people to define marriage and the rights stemming by operation of law there from.”

That prompted Justice John Weimer to retort that it is not a judge’s job to “point out what, in my view, the law should be.”

But it was  Justice Jefferson D. Cornpone Hughes, III, who dissented from the court’s conclusion that it actually must comply by stating that “Judges instruct jurors every week not to surrender their honest convictions merely to reach agreement,” Hughes began. “I cannot do so now.”

Hughes’s cites no authorities and provides no legal arguments in support of his position. But has no problem suggesting that the reason for his opinion is that gay parents are pedophiles. “This case involves an adoption,” he writes, adding that “[t]he most troubling prospect of same sex marriage is the adoption by same sex partners of a young child of the same sex.”

Both Hughes and Tony Perkins, President of the anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council both ran together on the Republican ticket in the 2002 Louisianan State election.

Coincidence?  NOT.

ACLU Sues Louisianna Governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal Over Religious Freedom Executive Order

Piyush Jindal Lawsuit

 

The Louisiana ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), along with the American Equality Foundation and six New Orleans residents are suing GOP Governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal over the religious freedom executive order he released in May that is aimed at protecting “Christians” who oppose same-sex marriage.

“[The lawsuit] is over the fact that the governor didn’t have the authority to do this in the first place,” said Marjorie Esman, head of the ACLU of Louisiana, in an interview and contends that Jindal exceeded his executive authority in issuing the order, claiming that only the Louisiana Legislature has the power to create a “substantive right” as the Jindal executive order claims it does.

“Gov. Jindal has violated the Louisiana Constitution by setting up special protections for those who share his belief system. In our country no one is above the law, including the Governor,”

In a statement following notice of the lawsuit Jindal wrote:

“This Executive Order protects religious liberty.  The ACLU used to defend civil liberties, now it appears they attack them.  The Left likes to pick and choose which liberties they support at any given time, and it seems to me that religious liberty has fallen out of favor with them. Religious liberty is fundamental to our freedom as Americans, and I will not back down from defending it.”

Oil Scandal Suspected Federal Judge in Louisiana UPHOLDS State Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Feldman

 

A federal judge in Louisiana upheld the states ban on same-sex marriage breaking the current string of 20 consecutive rulings overturning bans in other states.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman also upheld the state’s refusal to recognize same-sex marriages performed legally in other states. in 19 states and the District of Columbia.

Feldman said gay marriage supporters failed to prove that ban violates equal protection or due process provisions of the U.S. Constitution. He also rejected an argument that the ban violated the First Amendment by effectively forcing legally married gay couples to state that they are single on Louisiana income tax returns.

Feldman sided with the state, which had argued that the nation’s high court, in the Defense of Marriage Act decision, recognized the rights of state voters and legislatures to define marriage.

“Although opinions about same-sex marriage will understandably vary among the states, and other states in free and open debate will and have chosen differently, that does not mandate that Louisiana has overstepped its sovereign authority,” he wrote

Feldman said the Supreme Court decision “correctly discredited” the Defense of Marriage Act’s effect on New York law legalizing same-sex unions. But, he also noted language in the decision outlining the states’ historic authority to recognize and define marriage.

He also said that neither the Supreme Court, nor the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, have defined gay people as a protected class in discrimination cases.

“In light of still-binding precedent, this Court declines to fashion a new suspect class. To do so would distort precedent and demean the democratic process.”

Judge Feldman, a 1983 appointee of President Ronald Reagan has had his integrity called into question in the past.

In June 22, 2010, Feldman issued a preliminary injunction blocking a six month moratorium on deep-water offshore drilling in Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC v. Salazar. Feldman’s 2008 financial disclosure indicated that, he owned stock in Transocean  the company that owned the Deepwater Horizon rig, as well as in other oil companies which would be affected by the moratorium..

Judge Feldman’s 2009 financial disclosure report indicates that he had financial investments in multiple BlackRock funds, each valued under $15000, much like the prior year. Although Blackrock was said to be the largest holder of BP stock,it’s not clear that any of these funds held stock in BP. Feldman held stock in Exxon-Mobil during the hearing on the drilling moratorium and from June 8 to June 21, he issued several orders related to the moratorium case. On June 22, at the “opening of the stock market”, he reportedly sold his Exxon-Mobil stock. Hours later, he issued his ruling lifting the moratorium.
