David Duke and Other Anti-Semites Welcome Donald Trump’s Success

On his radio show yesterday, white supremacist David Duke celebrated Donald Trump’s victory in Indiana, which made him the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Duke also used the show as yet another opportunity to promote his virulent brand of anti-Semitism, blaming Jewish “neo-cons” for trying to destroy Trump’s candidacy and for allegedly controlling the country.

Duke asserted that “Jewish extremists have made a terribly crazy miscalculation, because all they’re going to be doing by doing a ‘Never Trump’ movement is exposing their alien, their anti-American, anti-American-majority position. … They’re going to push people more into an awareness that the neocons are the problem, that these Jewish supremacists who control our country are the real problem, and the reason why America is not great.”

While Duke’s latest anti-Semitic attack was in reaction to Trump’s recent win, he has consistently used Trump’s candidacy as a hook to promote his views that Jews control the government, the banking system and the media. In March, Duke posted a video, “Why the Jewish Elite Hate Trump,” in anticipation of Trump’s appearance before the Jewish organization AIPAC. In that video, he declared that the Jewish establishment is responsible for open border policies that are destroying the “heritage of people whose ancestors created America.”

Duke is not the only anti-Semite who is ardently supporting Trump. A number of anti-Semites believe that Trump’s campaign is implicitly appealing to white America and that his attacks on the media, the establishment and globalism show that he is not beholden to what they see as Jewish interests.

Kevin MacDonald, a notorious anti-Semite, joined Duke on his radio show yesterday to celebrate Trump’s victory. At an earlier conference of the National Policy Institute in March 2016, MacDonald gave a speech about Trump’s candidacy. He blamed Jewish neo-cons for trying to take the Republican presidential nomination from Trump. He declared, “It is no surprise that [Jewish groups] have been hostile to Trump…Such organizations have been in the forefront of promoting a multicultural and non-White America…”

Other anti-Semites have promoted the theory that Jewish Republicans are behind an effort to stop Trump from becoming president. Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin posted a column yesterday on the Daily Stormer website, “For Jews, Trump Win is Like Another Holocaust.” In it, he wrote, “White men in America and across the planet are partying like it’s 1999 following Trump’s decisive victory over the evil enemies of our race.”

White supremacist Matthew Heimbach crystallized anti-Semites’ view of Trump’s candidacy in October 2015. He said that Trump’s run “could be the stepping stone we need to then radicalize millions of White working and middle class families to the call to truly begin a struggle for Faith, family and folk. For this reason alone I will campaign for Donald Trump because as the saying goes ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’ and that is doubly true if that person is viewed as an enemy by the International Jew.”

Extremist Support of Donald Trump

Updated March 2, 2016

White supremacists have been enthusiastic supporters of Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president in June 2015 with bigoted remarks about Mexican immigrants. Subsequent remarks from Trump about banning Muslim immigration to the U.S served to solidify that support. White supremacists believe that Trump is voicing their own xenophobic and bigoted views toward immigrants and non-whites.

David Duke, a racist and anti-Semite and the most notorious bigot in America, urged his supporters to back Trump. On his radio show in February, Duke said that “voting against Trump is really treason to your heritage.” Duke even told his listeners to volunteer for Trump during the election. He added that he hoped that Trump “does everything we hope he will do.”

One of Trump’s biggest supporters is neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin who runs the Daily Stormer website. The site is filled with virulently racist and anti-Semitic articles. In July 2015, Anglin wrote an arti­cle that praised Trump for his com­ments on Mex­i­cans. Anglin asserted, “The Trump Train has left the sta­tion and is run­ning non-stop to total vic­tory over the bar­bar­ian hordes of Mex­ico. Because there is one issue which mat­ters beyond all other issues and that is the inva­sion of White coun­tries by non-whites.”Anglin adds that “the amount of good” that Trump has done “is immeasurable.” Anglin now refers to Trump as “our glorious leader,” and extols Trump at every turn.

White supremacist William Johnson, head of the American Freedom Party does more than talk about supporting Trump. He has actually created the American National Super PAC, which has paid for a series of robocalls supporting Trump for president. The calls have gone out number of states, including Iowa and New Hampshire. New robocalls are scheduled for Vermont and Minnesota which tell voters not to “vote for a Cuban.” The calls go on to say that the “white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist.’” Johnson has long courted the more hardcore members of the white supremacist movement, including racist skinheads.

Jared Taylor, a white supremacist who runs the American Renaissance website is another enthusiastic supporter of Trump. The American Renaissance site features articles that purport to demonstrate the intellectual and cultural superiority of whites. Taylor has written a number of articles endorsing Trump. His voice also appeared on the American National Super PAC robocalls in Iowa, where he told voters that “we don’t need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture.”

Richard Spencer, a white supremacist who runs a tiny think tank called the National Policy Institute has posted videos and articles endorsing Trump for president. Spencer is a symbolic of the new white supremacy whereby young racists would rather don suits and ties than a Klan robe to promote white nationalism. In an interview, Spencer said that Trump “seems to genuinely care about the historic American nation that is white people.”

Kevin MacDonald, a notorious anti-Semite and retired professor, has also backed Trump. He has lauded Trump’s comments about banning Muslim immigration and says that electing Trump “may be the last chance for Whites to elect a president who represents their interests.” MacDonald actually tried to raise money for his anti-Semitic publication, The Occidental Quarterly, by touting Trump’s candidacy. He wrote, “Donald Trump’s candidacy is a game changer and has a very real possibility of success. In this new climate, millions of White people are realizing that it’s entirely legitimate to oppose immigration and multiculturalism. It’s okay to oppose the idea that every last human has the moral right to immigrate to a Western country, or that all peoples and cultures are equally acceptable as immigrants.”

Matthew Heimbach, a racist and anti-Semite who co-founded the Traditionalist Youth Network, a white supremacist group, has expressed support for Trump. He wrote, “The march to victory will not be won by Donald Trump in 2016, but this could be the stepping stone we need to then radicalize millions of White working and middle class families to the call to truly begin a struggle for Faith, family and folk. For this reason alone I will campaign for Donald Trump because as the saying goes ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’ and that is doubly true if that person is viewed as an enemy by the International Jew.”

It has also been reported that the Knights Party, a Klan group in Arkansas, uses Trump and his views as a talking point when questioning potential recruits. In an article in Politico, Rachel Pendergraft, a spokesperson for the group, said that Trump, “has offered KKK members a prime opportunity to feel out potential recruits on their racial attitudes.”

In media interviews, Don Black, who runs Stormfront, the largest white supremacist Internet forum in the country, has said that Trump has helped drive traffic to his site. In interviews in Politico and Vice, Black said that Trump had been a boon to the white supremacist cause.

Lee Rogers, who runs the neo-Nazi website Infostormer, refers to Trump as “our leader.” Like Andrew Anglin, Rogers posts viciously racist and anti-Semitic articles on his site and exalts Trump.

Hunter Wallace, aka Brad Griffin, a white supremacist who promotes Southern nationalism officially endorsed Trump for president on his website, Occidental Dissent.

James Edwards, a white supremacist who runs the Political Cesspool website and radio show, wrote a blog about attending a Trump rally in Memphis on  February 28 as a representative of the press.  Edwards declared that he is voting for Trump and encouraged his own supporters to do the same. Edwards added, “With Trump, America has a chance to regain her identity.”

As a 501(c)3 non-profit orga­ni­za­tion, the Anti-Defamation League does not sup­port or oppose can­di­dates for polit­i­cal office.

Ann Coulter Admiration Grows Among White Supremacists

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter

When political pundit Ann Coulter made disparaging comments on Twitter claiming that presidential candidates were pandering to the Jewish community and questioned some candidates’ focus on Israel during the CNN Republican debate on September 16, white supremacists and anti-Semites were gleeful that she took on what they call “the Jewish question.” Extremists believe that Coulter was exposing alleged “Jewish power” in this country.

This is not the first time that extremists have lauded Coulter for her views. Extremists have been talking about Coulter for a number of years on Stormfront, the largest white supremacist Internet forum.

While there are myriad opinions about Coulter, she has become increasingly popular among extremists who see her as a voice for white nationalism or at least someone who might influence conservatives to move toward white nationalist views.

Coulter does not have any ties to the white supremacists who support her but what she says on issues such as immigration or demographics often resonates with them.

There are generally three extremist perspectives about Coulter: 1) that she is actually a white nationalist who is bringing that cause to the wider public; 2) that she has some good points but should not be embraced because she doesn’t deal with the “Jewish question” (at least until the debate took place), and 3) that she is a neoconservative who is not to be trusted.
