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.
