Default Ku Klux Klan Claims $20K In Clinton Donations

Hillary’s choice for VP Tim Kane is on a campaign of hate claiming Trump is a racist because KKK leader David Duke has endorsed him. Therefore Kane claims, Trump’s values are KKK values.

But wait, Duke doesn’t represent the entire KKK. Other leaders have made a very different endorsement.

Quote:
Shortly after setting a giant cross on fire with dozens of other members of various white nationalist groups in Georgia on Saturday, Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, sat down with Vocativ—which was there for a larger reporting trip about the modern state of the hate group—to talk about the 2016 election. According to Quigg, “For the KKK, Clinton is our choice.”
Surely we will see Kaine condemn Hillary using the same harsh language as he applied to Trump. Yeah sure. As Joe Biden showed being a Democrat VP nominee means any race baiting smear is accepted with no consequence.

KKK leader Quigg also claimed the organization donated $20K to Hillary's campaign.

Quote:
Quigg said that he and other Klan members have raised more than $20,000 for the Clinton campaign and donated it anonymously.
Of course Hillary will deny the donation. But she and Bill and their foundation never turned down a check no matter the source but this time is different.

WHAT'S TRUE: A man claiming to be a Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon told several media outlets that the KKK had changed their political allegiance from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton and had donated $20,000 to the latter's campaign.

WHAT'S FALSE: The main claiming to be a Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon made statements of questionable legitimacy and provided no evidence that they were anything but a media hoax.

ORIGIN:In mid-March 2016, purported Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard William Quigg told several media outlets that he and his contemporaries had switched their presidential candidate of choice from Republican front-runner Donald Trump to Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton:

Leave it to the racist-right to cite the KKK as a source of valid information.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Didn't Hillary just use the KK as a source of valid information in her TV ad?....

I'm sorry...When I say "When it's Obama, it's different.", I see the torch is getting passed to Hillary...

On Fox News Sunday, George Will--trenchant as always--made a very good analogy, I think: Just as a barnacle may attach itself to a ship, it does not define that ship; and just as the KKK has attached itself to the Republican Party, that does not define the Republican Party.

Note: He was speaking in the context of the current presidential race; and he does not care, at all, for Donald Trump.

Aww, does the KKK's support for Hillary hurt? She is a Democrat running under the banner of the party of slavery and racism. Instead of engaging in constructive discussion Democrats want to name call like the low information small children they are.

When a faction of the KKK endorses Hillary and donates to her campaign out comes Leftist propaganda mill Dopes to offer up yet another Clintonian weasel word denial "unproven." They don't call it a lie, someone else is obligated to provide proof to meet their ever changing standards while the Hillary bobble heads immediately spring into action with flat denials.

Hillary's campaign and foundation cashes checks from anyone, misogynist dictator or convicted swindler with business before the State Department included. Where is the proof she refunded the KKK donation? Oh wait it is Hillary so no proof is needed.

20K is a serious problem. That's almost a minute of speaking fees paid to other candidates by foreign leaders.

Unfortunately George Will's analogy doesn't ring true.

Racism is not a barnacle on the hull of the Republican Party but instead has become a structural component of the party.

That is simply not true.

But those who believe in 1960s-style "remedies" (post-Civil Rights Act)--who think that Eldridge Cleaver had it about right then, and that the Black Lives Matter movement has it about right now--would doubtless see it that way...
