JAMES DOWNIE: The question of the week

By JAMES DOWNIE Washington Post

This article was published March 2, 2016 at 2:58 a.m.

Normally, the question "Do you denounce the Ku Klux Klan?" has one answer: Yes. But not in Donald Trump's world. On CNN's State of the Union on Sunday morning, host Jake Tapper asked the Republican front-runner about the support of white supremacist and former KKK grand wizard David Duke. "Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage," said Duke. Tapper inquired whether Trump would "unequivocally condemn" Duke's support. Trump dodged.

So what if the Republican Party embraces the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi Party? David Duke, Trump's backer, has been a leader of both white supremacist groups. The Klan in particular hates Roman Catholics, and the Nazis in particular hate Jews, so basically white protestants are welcome in Don Trump's Republican Party. This will get rid of the Jewish 'neocons' like Bill Kristol, and it will remove Catholics from the Republican Party. Trump may just be planning to 'purify' the Republican Party. Trump's daddy was a Klansman, so he comes by it honest. Plus, Trump is German, so the Nazi connection is there.

Nod , quite a quandry?! Getting rid [ in a legal way] of Herr Kristol sounds like something good for America and if I would be so bold, the world! Yet if the gop would just be the inclusive party they say, and just tell Trump bad, bad , bad guy but you are better than a democrat but if you act up again we will still support you as we like BS spread from sea to shining sea better than reason and compassion.

And Nod , the party is already pure, pure Bravo Sierra.

TRUMP-DALE CRAWFORD , a winning Combination.
