On Trump and repudiating David Duke.

Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" tonight (transcript not yet available) was in full cry to derail Donald Trump's candidacy for his appearing not to repudiate David Duke for statements he had made encouraging whites not to vote for a candidate other than Trump.

I'll let Mr. Trump defend himself on this point but, for a little perspective on the source of some politicians' support -- and what support politicians have rendered to whom -- let's take this stroll down memory lane:

  • "[In March 2007,] as Senator Obama, the current President of the United States marched with the New Black Panther Party in the streets of Selma, Alabama. – "Reminder as Ferguson Tension Grows: Obama Marched With The Black Panthers." By Katie Pavlich, Town Hall, 12/3/14.
  • "Earlier this year [2014], President Obama nominated cop-killer advocate Debo Adegbile to head up the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice." – "Reminder as Ferguson Tension Grows: Obama Marched With The Black Panthers." By Katie Pavlich, Town Hall, 12/3/14.
  • Hillary Rodham was "personally involved in the defense of several Black Panthers" by attending their trials as a law student and arranging for shifts of students "to monitor court proceedings." – "Hillary Rodham Clinton." Discover the Networks.
  • "Hillary Clinton criticized Barack Obama at Tuesday night's debate for not directly rejecting the support of Louis Farrakhan." – "Clinton hits Obama over Farrakhan." By CNN, 2/27/08.
  • "Two officials from a group designated by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund the terrorist group Hamas will attend President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday as guests of Democratic lawmakers." – "Democrats invite jihad-linked CAIR to State of the Union." By Art Moore, World Net Daily, 1/12/16.
  • "Sen. Bernie Sanders, fresh off a win in New Hampshire – and a very near win in Iowa – has taken to a restaurant in New York City for a sit-down with activist Al Sharpton, a Wednesday morning meeting aimed at broadening the self-declared socialist’s standing among black voters." – "Sanders hunkers down with Al Sharpton." By Cheryl Chumley, World Net Daily, 2/10/16.
  • "Angela Davis, a political activist, author, professor and 'radical African-American educator' who was once regarded as a terrorist and danger to the nation by former President Richard Nixon, in part for her early communist beliefs, said during an interview about her new book that she favors Sen. Bernie Sanders in the presidential race because of his more radical views." – "Sanders wins nod from noted communist leader." By Cheryl Chumley, World Net Daily, 2/26/16.
  • "All that [problems with interviewer and journal in which interview with former DIA director Michael Flynn appears] is noted, but if this transcript is accurate, former DIA director Michael Flynn is confirming that the Obama Administration knowingly decided to support al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, and directly enabled the rise of the Islamic State. And given the Obama Administration’s general stance toward the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, what would be unbelievable about that?

    "In a sane political atmosphere, this would be enough to bring down the Obama presidency. Instead, it will get little notice and no action whatsoever." – "Former DIA director: Obama White House made 'willful decision' to support al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood in Syria." By Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs, 8/8/15.

  • "The Canadian company selling Uranium One to the Russians donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. And Russians tied to the deal gave Bill Clinton $500,000 for a Moscow speech." -- "The Clintons' Other, Truly Bodacious Mine Boondoggle." By Jack Cashill, American Thinker, 4/27/15.
  • "While questions regarding the U.S. Democratic Party's fund-raising activities first arose over a Los Angeles Times article published on September 21, 1996,[1] China's alleged role in the affair first gained public attention when Bob Woodward and Brian Duffy of The Washington Post published a story stating that a United States Department of Justice investigation into the fund-raising activities had uncovered evidence that agents of China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) before the 1996 presidential campaign." – "1996 United States campaign finance controversy."

  1. A tiresome libel used against non-leftists since time immemorial. It was used profitably against Goldwater and Reagan. Now the deranged morons at Fox and Salem Communications are full of it. Schadenfreude don't you know. Pox on them.
