Trump Endorsement Reveals Empowerment of Racist Groups
(Libertarian Republic) – In recently discovered audio from the radio program of American Nazi Party chairman Rocky Suhayda, the leader strongly praises Donald Trump. Suhayda says his election would be a “real opportunity” for white nationalists. Suhayda states:
I’m gonna project, that I believe that Trump is going to win the election this November, for various reasons which I don’t want to go into again. I think it’s gonna surprise the enemy, because, I think that they feel that the white working class, especially the male portion of the working class, and with him his female counterparts have basically thrown in the towel. Given up hope of any politician again standing up for their interests.
Now, if Trump does win, okay, it’s going to be a real opportunity for people like white nationalists, acting intelligently to build upon that, and to go and start – you know how you have the black political caucus and what not in Congress, and, everything, to start building on something like that, okay. It doesn’t have to be anti, like the movement’s been for decades, so much as it has to be pro-white. It’s kinda hard to go and call us bigots, if we don’t go around and act like a bigot. That’s what the movement should contemplate. Alright.
More frightening than the fact that the American Nazi endorsed Trump is the substance of his praise. He states that the Republican candidate has effectively communicated white nationalist ideas by working in a covert manner. In other words, Suhayda is referring to the so-called “code language” which Trump typically employs.
Throughout the past year, this has been done in perhaps even a less secretive manner than even Suhayda suggests. Trump has regularly targeted racial, ethnic and religious minorities in his political rhetoric — particularly Hispanics and Arabs.
Also important to remember is that Suhayda is not the first questionable endorsement which Trump has received. For example, the emergence of the candidate led to former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke declaring his candidacy for the US Senate in Louisiana. Duke has had high praise for the Republican presidential nominee, and when asked if his voters and Trump’s voters were one and the same, Duke responded, “Well, of course they are! Because I represent the ideas of preserving this country and the heritage of this country, and I think Trump represents that as well.”
Even Pat Buchanan, who is much more mainstream but has expressed very questionable ideas on race, now supports the candidacy of Trump. Buchanan has consistently supported draconian policies on trade and immigration, one of the main reasons for the support of the New York billionaire. When asked about the white nationalist groups, Buchanan labeled them only as “white separatists who prefer to live with their own.”
Meanwhile, many of those closely associated with Trump have made questionable statements. His New York State campaign co-chairman Carl Paladino insists that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Actor Antonio Sabàto, Jr., who was featured prominently at the Republican National Convention in a primetime speech, also supports this assertion. Trump’s national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, has become well-known for making anti-Muslim statements, even before she was hired into her current position.
Visible is not just that Donald Trump rouses anger and instills power in white nationalist groups and individuals, but that he willingly associates with them. These facts confirm the suspicions which many Americans have: that Trump is running on principles of mere populism and hatred. His actions and statements over the past year have done nothing but confirm these accusations. His close relationships with, and endorsements from, people like Duke, Suhayda and others only serve to substantiate these fairly obvious realities.
