How Do You Show Up at a David Duke Event and Not Know What It Is?

In 2002, a year after not long before Trent Lott was driven from office in December of 2002, for his statements about support Strom Thurmond, [mc_name name=’Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’S001176′ ], now the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, went to a David Duke organized event.

How do you not know? How do you not investigate?

David Duke is the reasons I am no longer a resident of Louisiana. After supporting Edwin Edwards in the gubernatorial race against David Duke in 1991, I knew I had to get the hell out of a state where those were the two most popular choices.

I moved to Georgia to go to school and could only now consider moving back thanks to the hard work of Governor Bobby Jindal.

By 2002, everybody knew Duke was still the man he had claimed not to be.EVERYBODY.

How the hell does somebody show up at a David Duke organized event in 2002 and claim ignorance?

Trent Lott was driven from the field in 2001 for something less than this.

And the very GOP establishment now lining up behind Steve Scalise threw Chris McDaniel under the bus for speaking to a Sons of the Confederate Veterans event.

That was my question.

And the person I commented to, actually defended him, saying "maybe he didn't know who the group was".

I am still in shock to realize that people are that stupid.

No different than giving a speech to a NAACP group....They are both one-sided bigoted groups.
