Former Ku Klux Klan leader's Spanish visit sparks outrage
22 November 2007
Madrid - US historian and former congressman for Louisiana David Duke is touring Spain this week to promote his latest book, 'Jewish Supremacism. My Awakening on the Jewish Question', which has recently been translated into Spanish and released by Ojeda Publishers.
Hello...that is FACTUALLY INCORRECT, people at Expatica News. David Duke NEVER SERVED in the US House, he was in the Louisiana State legislature, and if he is an american historian I am Will Durant and Michael Beschloss rolled in to one.
What a farce! Is there any american who doesn't understand clearly what Mr. Duke really wants?
This former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, who founded the white supremacist group National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP) in 1980, visited Valladolid on Monday and Zaragoza on Wednesday to give conferences organized by the Spanish far-right political and social movements National Alliance and National Democracy.
Speaking on Monday before a packed auditorium in Valladolid, Duke denied being a white supremacist, and spoke up in favor of freedom of speech.
I guess he's been taking Nick Griffin moderation lessons.
"No people or nation should oppress others. Every country has the right to be independent and to preserve its heritage" in areas such as art and cultural and artistic development, argued Duke.Where have I heard this before? Hmmmmm......I wonder if Vlaams defenders would claim that people such as Duke shouldn't taint their quest for cultural survival, for DeWinter's metaphorical 'white europe', that is to say. I mean it's not the same thing at all, "not at all" as Mr. DeWinter would say. Right? Hello?
The former Congressman also explained that when he speaks "of Jewish supremacism" he is not referring to all Jewish people. Instead, he insisted that his words only target "Jewish extremists and those who try to impose their supremacy."
You knows, those hook nosers who keep insisting that bagels make it onto the Dunkin' Donuts menus.
Duke's arrival in Spain coincides with a growing debate on the rising presence of extremist far-right groups with a racist agenda in the country.
Well, well. Perhaps an impression is being made after all.
Duke sails even closer to the wind and to every argument I have heard defending DeWinter........
