eternal flame Wrote: Many news shows have been covering this very well, the last few days. It is very interesting to know that David Duke was NOT just a racist KKK, and a White Supremicist, but also a neo-Nazi. (Some of you may remember them, we fought World War 2 to get rid of them.) Many of our US. soldiers were crippled or killed to stop the spread of Nazi beliefs). It seems rather odd that NOW, (70 yrs after WW2), the Nazi's are strong enough to get their guys into positions of leadership in our nation's capitol - Wash, DC). It should make us all feel a bit "shocked." To say the very least.

lonely bird Wrote: jonnycee, if this is a non-issue due to the length of time that has passed then byrd's time in the kkk which occurred long ago and which he denounced as something he should not have done should have been a non-issue. but you can bet your ass that it was brought up by the hypocrites on the right whenever something about david duke or racism reared its head in congress or in politics.
