Iran’s Press TV Grants David Duke A Platform For Hate

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke pro­moted his new book and made a num­ber of egre­giously anti-Semitic state­ments on Press TV, the Iran­ian government’s English-language news net­work which fre­quently pro­vides a plat­form for anti-Semitic con­spir­acy theorists.david-duke-press-TV-July-25-2013

Although Duke briefly served in the Louisiana State Leg­is­la­ture, Press TV incor­rectly iden­ti­fied him as a “for­mer mem­ber, House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.” Press TV then asked him to “assess” the U.S. Congress.

Invok­ing anti-Semitic con­spir­a­cies about Jew­ish con­trol of the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, Duke answered that Con­gress “is totally in the hands of the Zion­ists. The Zion­ists con­trol the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, lock, stock, and barrel.”

Duke then went on to make sev­eral wide-ranging anti-Semitic alle­ga­tions that are con­sis­tent with his record and typ­i­cal of the views often espoused on Press TV:

  • “They con­trol our finances. They con­trol the Fed­eral Reserve. They con­trol the inter­na­tional banks…They con­trol the elite of Amer­ica through the con­trol of the Ivy League, where they dis­crim­i­nate against bet­ter qual­i­fied non-Jewish Americans.”
  • “They will do any­thing. These peo­ple are tyrants…It is Jew­ish trib­al­ism and racism, the fact that they sup­port each other and dis­crim­i­nate against non-Jews in media, in gov­ern­ment, in acad­e­mia and finance that has given them the supremacy in the West over the bank­ing sys­tem, over our media, over our gov­ern­ment and really over our finances and that of course has fueled the sup­port for the Zion­ist state of Israel and the cover-up of their crimes.”
  • Duke describes this sup­posed Jew­ish con­trol over all sec­tors of the United States as “the world’s great­est sin­gle problem.”  
  • He alleges “Jew­ish com­mu­nist” and “Zion­ist” con­trol over both America’s polit­i­cal left and polit­i­cal right and that “Amer­ica is just as oppressed and dam­aged and endan­gered by this Jew­ish extrem­ist power, this Zion­ist power, as the Pales­tini­ans are.”
  • “The real ter­ror­ist power in the world today is not Hezbol­lah, and it is not the Pales­tini­ans, and it’s not the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment. It is in fact Israel, which sup­ports all the real ter­ror­ism going on and the death of truly mil­lions of peo­ple in these insane wars for the power of Israel.”

Accord­ing to his inter­view with Press TV, Duke’s new book, titled The Secret Behind Com­mu­nism, exam­ines “the Jew­ish role in the ori­gins of the com­mu­nist rev­o­lu­tion in Rus­sia and how that Jew­ish suprema­cism and racism and eth­nic hatred against the Rus­sians fueled the great­est mass mur­der in the his­tory of the world.” He claims Jews “don’t want peo­ple to know about this huge holo­caust they were behind.”

In addi­tion to dis­sem­i­nat­ing its hate­ful mes­sag­ing on satel­lite TV net­works, its web­site, and social media, Press TV is now also live stream­ing on YouTube.

David Duke Solicits Funds To Distribute New Anti-Semitic Book

For­mer Klan leader and anti-Semite David Duke says on his web­site that he is try­ing to pub­lish a new book that paints Jews as mass mur­der­ers who com­mit­ted geno­cide against Rus­sians and Ukraini­ans dur­ing the Russ­ian Revolution. david-duke-new-book

On July 6, 2013, Duke claimed that he had raised enough money from read­ers of his web­site to pub­lish the book titled The Secret Behind Com­mu­nism. Duke posted the book’s intro­duc­tion on his web­site in an appar­ent effort to elicit more funds for print­ing, dis­trib­ut­ing and pro­mot­ing the book.

In the intro­duc­tion, he claims that Jews were behind the Russ­ian Rev­o­lu­tion and were respon­si­ble for mur­der­ing tens of mil­lions of peo­ple. He writes, “Upon achiev­ing total power, [Jews’] deep psy­cho­pathic, racist hatred became man­i­fest in the great­est human slaugh­ter of all time.” The intro­duc­tion is typ­i­cal of his anti-Semitic dia­tribes. He often pro­motes con­spir­a­to­r­ial depic­tions of Jew­ish power and Jew­ish hatred for non-Jews, a com­bi­na­tion he refers to as “Jew­ish supremacism.”

Duke argues that the alleged mass killing of Ukraini­ans by Jews far exceeded the Holo­caust.  Invok­ing clas­si­cal anti-Semitic myths, he claims that the pub­lic focuses on the Holo­caust and not the Ukraine because Jews con­trol the media, acad­e­mia, gov­ern­ments and Hollywood.

In addi­tion to blam­ing Jews for the mass mur­der of Ukraini­ans and Rus­sians, Duke attacks Zion­ism. He asserts that modern-day Israelis learned about “eth­nic cleans­ing” from Jew­ish Bol­she­viks. He writes, “The eth­nic cleans­ings and mur­der­ous ways of the Jew­ish trib­al­ists in Rus­sia are being repeated in the Zion­ist eth­nic cleans­ing of Palestine.”

Duke ded­i­cated his book to Alexan­der Solzhen­it­syn, the renowned Russ­ian writer who unfor­tu­nately expressed anti-Semitic views in some of his works. Duke states in the book’s intro­duc­tion that he lib­er­ally uses Solzhenitsyn’s writ­ings on the Russ­ian Rev­o­lu­tion to pro­vide the con­text for his new book.

Duke is also try­ing to raise funds for another anti-Semitic book he is writ­ing, The Zion­ist Con­spir­acy. Duke released a pre­view of one chap­ter of the book, in which he argues that Jews do not have a higher intel­li­gence level than non-Jews, and thus their “over­rep­re­sen­ta­tion” in Ivy League schools, such as Har­vard, can be attrib­uted to anti-white dis­crim­i­na­tion against “more qual­i­fied” European-Americans and Asian-Americans.

White Supremacist American Third Position Party Promoting Gun Appreciation Day

The Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion (A3P), a white suprema­cist polit­i­cal party, is pro­mot­ing Gun Appre­ci­a­tion Day on its web­site. The Jan­u­ary 19 event, spon­sored by a num­ber of pro-gun and Tea Party groups, urges Amer­i­cans to go to their local gun store, gun range or gun show to demon­strate their sup­port of gun own­er­ship and their right to bear arms.

A3P was a co-sponsor of the event but the orga­niz­ers appar­ently removed A3P’s name from the list of spon­sors after Media Mat­ters and other news out­lets revealed the group’s extrem­ist views. In its mis­sion state­ment, A3P states that the group’s goal is “to restore and pre­serve the legit­i­macy of White iden­tity, White her­itage, and expres­sions of White interests.”

The lead­er­ship of A3P includes a num­ber of well-known white suprema­cists and anti-Semites. Chair­man William John­son pro­moted a con­sti­tu­tional amend­ment to Con­gres­sional mem­bers and state leg­is­la­tures in the 1980s that would have lim­ited U.S. cit­i­zen­ship only to whites of Euro­pean descent and repa­tri­ated var­i­ous groups, includ­ing Jews, to places deemed their coun­try of origin.

Other lead­ers of the A3P include Kevin Mac­Don­ald, an anti-Semitic pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­ogy at Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­sity at Long Beach; James Edwards, who runs a white suprema­cist radio show, The Polit­i­cal Cesspool; Don Was­sall, a long-time white suprema­cist whose news­pa­per The Nation­al­ist Times pub­lishes anti-Semitic and racist arti­cles; Vir­ginia Aber­nethy, a white suprema­cist and anti-immigration activist, and Jamie Kelso, a racist and for­mer asso­ciate of ex-Klan leader David Duke.

One of the A3P’s main goals is to appeal to main­stream audi­ences, and it attempts to do so using issues that are of con­cern to the gen­eral pub­lic.  A3P’s attempt to par­tic­i­pate in Gun Appre­ci­a­tion Day is part of this effort. Pre­vi­ously, the party has sought to exploit issues such as immi­gra­tion and gov­ern­ment spend­ing at Tea Party events in dif­fer­ent parts of the country.
