according to Rachel Pendergraft, a national organizer for a KKK affiliated group:
Rachel Pendergraft — the national organizer for the Knights Party, a standard-bearer for the Ku Klux Klan — told The Washington Post that the KKK, for one, has a new conversation starter at its disposal.
You might call it a “Trump card.”
It involves, say, walking into a coffee shop or sitting on a train while carrying a newspaper with a Donald Trump headline. The Republican presidential candidate, Pendergraft told The Post, has become a great outreach tool, providing separatists with an easy way to start a conversation about issues that are important to the dying white supremacist movement.
“One of the things that our organization really stresses with our membership is we want them to educate themselves on issues, but we also want them to be able to learn how to open up a conversation with other people,” Pendergraft said.
Using Trump as a conversation piece has been discussed on a private, members-only website and in “e-news, stuff that goes out to members.”
In addition to opening “a door to conversation,” she said, Trump’s surging candidacy has done something else: It has electrified some members of the movement.
“They like the overall momentum of his rallies and his campaign,” Pendergraft said.
“They like that he’s not willing to back down. He says what he believes and he stands on that.”
For large numbers of Americans, Trump’s blunt rhetoric surrounding immigration, minority groups and crime may sound like finely tuned retrograde vitriol. But for Pendergraft and a growing number of white nationalists flocking to the campaign’s circus-like tent, the billionaire sounds familiar, like a man fluent in the native tongue of disaffected whites.
Of course this should not come as a surprise to most of us since Trump's father was once arrested with members of the Klan, and his campaign recently forced white supremacist groups to upgrade their servers.
Besides virtually EVERYTHING this man says could be coming out of the mouth of a Grand Wizard of the KKK. His current anti-immigration rhetoric, his demand for Obama's birth certificate, even his history of refusing to rent to black folks, ALL of it helps to identify him as a modern David Duke.
IF he actually wins the GOP nomination the Republican establishment will finally have to admit to themselves that they are the party of racial hatred, religious intolerance, misogyny, and homophobia.
Which, by the way, is something most of us have known for several decades now.
