Another Republican Exploratory Committee Formed
(with comments)

This time, the exploring is being done by White Supremacist David Duke.

dukeklan Add to the growing list of candidates considering a bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 America’s most famous white-power advocate: David Duke.

A former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and Republican executive-committee chairman in his district until 2000, Duke has a significant following online. His videos go viral. This month, he’s launching a tour of 25 states to explore how much support he can garner for a potential presidential bid.

Former (and current) Neo Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members, neo-Confederates, and other representatives of the many wings of the “white nationalist” movement are starting to file paperwork and print campaign literature for offices large and small, pointing to rising unemployment, four years with an African-American president, and rampant illegal immigration as part of a growing mound of evidence that white people need to take a stand.

    Perhaps he will select Herman Cain as his running mate.

    He probably had as good a shot at it today as ever.

    He should fit right in with the Tea Party.

    Which is meaningless. YouTube "stars" are a dime a dozen nowadays.

    David Duke acheved something no one else in the history of Louisiana ever did, he got African-Americans there registered in numbers higher than in any other state. Huey Long failed, MLK and SNCC failed, The Black Panther Party of New Orleans failed. David Duke made it happen.

    In spite of his ability to make blacks register to vote, I'm sure that Duke will be popular with Tea Partiers nationwide.

    Politics is ironic.

    Abortion rights, a liberal cause supporting women, is frequently used to abort female fetuses by couples that want boys; it decimates the black population more than any other race, beyond the KKK's wildest dreams; and as research starts to indicate maternal in utero hormonal effects possibly induce homosexually, abortions to prevent "gayness" are now beginning to be performed if testing indicates a fetus has been exposed to the wrong hormonal indicium.

    Programs to expand financial opportunities, such as universal home ownership, were not fully considered and exploited by the ubiquitous avaricious individuals found amongst all groups, including liberals. These programs have now brought financial ruin to almost all of its intended beneficiaries.

    The laws of intended consequences permeate politics and all the efforts of the well meaning amongst us. No good deed goes unpunished.

    Sorry innumeracy, while sex-selection abortion may be popular in a few countries (and they will pay the costs thereof) they are excedingly rare in the US. It's more a case of "this is a horrible time to have a baby" or "I want a baby but something's going wrong. Rick Santorum's wife had a late term extraction with D and C for medical reasons, though he would now restrict such procedures

    There are those stupid enough to actually believe these represent conservatives. Most ex-klan/racists that come to my mind are/were democrats.

    What's your source for that?

    Because it's impossible that party affiliations, or political labels such as "conservative" could possibly change over time.
