Trump claimed he did not know who David Duke was, which was just another among the thousands of his bald faced lies.
No shortage of lies this election.

The GOP shunned David Duke. Democrats embraced and lionized Robert Byrd, who Hillary called her 'mentor'.
Duke is running as the republican senate candidate for Louisiana. Republicans will shun him as soon as they are finished shunning Trump.

Duke can call himself anything he wants.

For decades the KKK was the militant arm of the democrat party. Republicans fought against it and were themselves targets of the KKK.

Don't worry Nannygoat, things could be a lot worse for you around here than they are now. This isn't that bad. You and your nutter friends have nominated the one person Hillary could beat. If she does, then you should worry. It will have been your fault, and you will never ever be allowed to forget it. If you think the Kenyan grabbed you by the ears and rammed, jammed slammed and crammed Obummercare down your throat again and again and again until it exploded all over your face, just wait to see what happens if you succeed in getting Hillary elected.

My support and money went to Rand Paul. Trump is the nominee, and I will vote for him but only because the alternative is much, much worse. Think Ebola.

When you have Bannon claiming about Breitbart that "we're the platform for the alt-right," it is a little more concrete than the vast right wing conspiracy.

Plenty of people self identify as part of the alt-right movement and Breitbart claims to be their media platform. It is fair to look at what they are saying and decide if you as a voter want to endorse/further their positions by voting for Trump.

There's going to be a hell of a lot of howling if Trump not only loses but drags the GOP Senate candidates down with him.

I wonder how quickly McConnell will try to ram through Garlands nomination if Clinton wins and the Democrats take control of the Senate?

Days? Hours?

And don't even get Dog started on why blacks and whites switched parties. Bad strategy.

This campaign is starting to get ugly. Pretty brutal speech by Clinton yesterday.

Clinton says Trump is 'taking hate groups mainstream'

WASHINGTON Hillary Clinton sought to tie her Republican rival more tightly to some of the darkest strains of the American political right, saying in a major speech Thursday that Donald Trump is "taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party."

.........

In brutal terms, Clinton argued that Trumps embrace of "conspiracy theories with racist undertones," his connections with the so-called "alt-right" movement, and his own divisive comments and policy positions disqualify him from the White House.

........

"This is a moment of reckoning for every Republican dismayed that the Party of Lincoln has become the Party of Trump," Clinton said. "Its a moment of reckoning for all of us who love our country and believe that America is better than this."

Because everything Hillary Clinton says is without doubt the complete and total truth? yeah right. Consider the source.

Care to make an argument on the merits?

This is strange coming from a regular contributor to a political forum.
Are you honestly unaware the Republicans and Democrats essentially traded names in the entire south when the Civil Rights act was passed??

Those who used to be conservative democrats ( example Texas Governor John Connally) became Republicans and liberal Republicans like Hillary Clinton switched to the Democratic Party.

Today, groups like the KKK and Southern Baptists block vote as Republican.
A complete myth, one of the most persistent lies told by progressives.

The only democrat who became a republican was Strom Thurmond.

What did happen was that blacks switched to support democrats. They left the party of Lincoln for the party of segregation, lynching, and the KKK. They did so because the democrats promised them economic benefits, some of the same kind of security they gave them when slaves on the real plantations. It was a bargain struck with the devil.

Democrats were the party of slavery then, and they are the party of enslavement now. The democrat party is the undisputed party of racism. Their new plantation is the inner city, and democrats are still the slave holding party they always were.

Why dispute it the Kool Aid drinkers are lapping it up - She basically called anyone who supports Trump - racists, white supremacists and belonging to fringe hate groups . It;s a dark day in America Ms. Clinton and you just took the campaign into the sewer.
