Donald Trump Jr. has no problem associating with white supremacists. Trump appeared on white supremacist radio talk show, The Political Cesspool, hosted by known white supremacist James Edwards. Neo-Nazis, KKK leaders, and Holocaust deniers have been among the many guests on this show.
Edwards has no shame admitting his preferential treatment at Donald Trump rallies. The Huffington Post reports Edwards has received an all-access press badge, in addition to VIP parking. James is also allowed to broadcast his radio show live from these rallies.
The Political Cesspool show has recently broadcast from three Donald Trump rallies to include, Illinois, Arkansas, and Tennessee. Unfortunately, this VIP treatment gives Edwards, his white supremacist show, and ideals a sense of legitimacy by being able to cover high-profile events such as this. But he doesn’t want you to take what the media says at face value.
My show, The Political Cesspool, promotes a proud, paleoconservative Christian worldview, and we reject media descriptions of our work as “white supremacist,” “pro-slavery” and other such scare words.
As I clearly wrote in yesterday’s article, in no way should anyone interpret our press credentialing and subsequent interview with Donald Trump, Jr. as any kind of endorsement by the Trump campaign.
The grotesque way in which the media is purposefully misrepresenting my work and taking certain cherry-picked statements wildly out of context is both shameful and reprehensible. That said, I apologize for nothing and I retract nothing.
This interview with Donald Trump Jr. could not have come at a worse time for the Trump campaign, which claims to be working to fight the perception that they are inherently racist and anti-immigration. Critics of Trump have called his ideals flat-out racist as he received a strong endorsement from former KKK grand-wizard David Duke. David Duke had some strong words for those that are anti-Trump
“David Duke, who told his white nationalist audience that voting against the reality TV star is “really treason to your [white] heritage.”
Instead of Donald Trump quickly dismissing Duke and his support, Trump claimed it wasn’t fair to deny Duke’s support because he didn’t know enough about Duke or his white supremacist associations. After public and media pressure, Trump finally disavowed Duke’s support. Like many famed white supremacists, Duke is a show regular on The Political Cesspool.
White supremacist are very serious and want to make it known they adamantly support Trump. They are becoming organized and mobilizing. Not only are they broadcasting live from Donald Trump’s rallies, but the New York Daily News suggest a series of robocalls made on Trump’s behalf are going out to voters as well. In Iowa and New Hampshire, telephone calls to voters will most likely hear this message: “We don’t need Muslims! We need smart, educated, white people who will assimilate to our culture.”
While disapproving of the calls, Trump also validated the calls by stating these individuals are just expressing their anger toward illegal immigrants, and immigration laws.
This all follows Trump after his surprising wins on ‘Super Tuesday.’ According to CNN, Trump racked up seven wins across the USA including most of the southern states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. He also won in Massachusetts and Vermont, which are states that are known for being moderate. These surprising wins suggest the public may have accepted Trump’s ‘laissez-faire’ attitude toward his white supremacist supporters, or, there are large amounts of people who believe in his volatile views.
The Republican party is growing short on time and running scared. The time is coming for them to dismiss Trump and his presidential nomination. Trump and his violent rhetoric could cause the party to implode, and cause the Republican party to lose favor with the public, in addition to losing valuable seats in the house and senate.
