David Duke says Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization
Says He’s Overjoyed by GOP’s Nomination of Donald Trump
From USA Today:
Former Ku Klux Klan wizard David Duke emerged from a 17-year political hiatus to officially sign up to run for U.S. Senate in Louisiana, a state already roiling with racial tension.
Duke, a Republican who served one term in the Louisiana House, hasn’t run for office since 1999. He is running to fill the seat that will be vacated by Republican Sen. David Vitter.
Duke said he will fight to end what he believes is “massive racial discrimination” against whites and called Black Lives Matter “a terrorist organization.”
Duke’s announcement comes after the shooting death of a black man by white police officers and the killing of three law enforcement officers by a black man. It also came one day after Donald Trump accepted the GOP nomination for president.
“Black Lives Matter has gone around the country and advocated for the murder of police officers,” he said after signing papers Friday at the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office. Duke also said media have incited violence against police.
