    Spare me. The Republican Party of even fifty years ago is nothing like the shadow that clings to the name now. I know the history. What is passing itself off as the RNP is actually an insult to the term.

    Don't use examples of the Republican Party's actions one hundred plus and forty plus years ago as proof of what that party is now. It has changed.
    I mentioned the Civil Rights Acts of 1875 and 1964 because of what you said ealier:

    "Politically, the historical ideal of the Republican party was a federalism platform, born from the slavery issue and whether states should have the right to say yay or nay to it."

    What I am saying is that historically, until the last several decades, the Republican party represented more of an anti-slavery and pro civil rights agenda for blacks than the democrats. However, due to political realignment, the dixiecrats (racist Democrats) joined the Republican party, and the two parties have virtually switched sides on the issue.

    I dont know about 'contract enforced' but there are many so called restricted Country Clubs's...Maidstone in The Hamptons and Palm Beach Bath and Tennis for example. The Everglades Club in Palm Beach was formed by Jews who were blackballed by PBBT.

    In all fairness, I have to point out there are restricted clubs that are black and white. I can't speak for other races. Any restricted club is regressive and nauseating.

    The dixiecrats definitely moved in quickly, took the reins, and polluted the atmosphere. Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond, who was originally a democrat, were two of the more notorious members.

    Just as the Republicans split from the Whigs, to clean up this party, I see splitting again as the only way. Leave the fundies and racists in the Republican Party and those who remember what the party stood for can create their own. Until then, the whole party is going to be seen as negatively impacting politics and the country.

    Michael Steele is so annoying.

    And I'm thinking if O wasn't elected, he wouldn't have been chosen for that position.........

    Michael Steele has his work cut out for him. I came across this article mentioned on an Alaskan blog today. Yes, it's by THAT David Duke.
    To Hell with the Republican Party!
    GOP traitors appoint Obama Junior as Chairman of the Republican Party

    By David Duke, former Republican member of the House of Representatives in Louisiana, and former Chairman of the Largest Republican District in the state.

    The Republican Party leadership, in its latest act of self-immolation appointed Michael Steele, a radical Black racist as the leader of the Party.
    Steele is a passionate supporter of affirmative action programs that racially discriminate against tens of millions of White Americans. He also supports increased discrimination against White owned businesses in the awarding of non-merit and non-bid minority contracts. He is opposed to the death penalty and thinks that it is disproportionately applied to Blacks even though it is applied to White murderers at 500 percent higher than it is to Black murderers. He is also an advocate of more gun control legislation as well as a draconian, massively increased enforcement of the current laws. He is a servile dog of Israel and has condemned Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorists and yet said not a word of compassion for the 5,000 (half of them women and children) who have been maimed and murdered in Gaza by Israel’s weapons of mass destruction. He says that he would still support the Iraq War and the loss of 50,000 maimed Americans, 4500 killed and trillions in cost, even though the reason for the war (Weapons of Mass Destruction) was proven to be a lie.

    When a reporter for the Washington Post interviewed me on the appointment, this is what I said:

    I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, “To Hell With the Republican Party!” And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!


    I think the insanity of nominating “Mr. Amnesty” John McCain and now this Black racist — will lead to insurgency in the Republican ranks, and a lot of dissidents getting elected in Republican Party primaries around the country. This will result over the next four years in a real move by millions of Republicans to take the party back to the populist issues that are not only right but can win for the Republican Party. We must end affirmative action, protect our gun rights and all our constitutional rights, have a moratorium on immigration, we must have protectionism, yes I said protect American businesses and their workers from NAFTA and GATT and the lie of free trade, and we must have America First, not foreign interventionism. Our boys should be home protecting the American borders and not being murdered on the borders of Iraq or Afghanistan. The time has come for the Republican Party to stand up to Obama and defend American heritage, rights, and freedom!

    Who knows if they will print a word of my comments, but millions will read them here on The Official Website of Representative David Duke, PhD — As our Internet numbers grow, soon we will be able to also say “To hell with the controlled media.”

    The Republican leadership is not going to get away with this one. Obama is bad enough as President, we will not stand for Obama junior to be head of the Republican Party

    I have compiled here some direct quotes from the new Black racist, Republican Chairman, complete with unimpeachable sources, mostly from his own campaign websites and press releases. Also here are some media excerpts about how happy we should be about our new Republican Chairman.

    Let’s make this abomination in the Republican Party the last major party of White redoubt, as a rallying cry of resistance!

    -david duke

    Some excerpts of media and direct quotes by Steele:

    RNC Chairman Michael Steele Pledges Action RNC Chairman Michael Steele Pledges Action

    January 30, 2009 by Michael Thompson in Associated Content


    Some delegates at the RNC Chairman’s election in Washington, Michael Steele’s hometown, opposed Steele on the basis that he is not politically conservative enough for their tastes. This reflects the philosophic divisions that have afflicted the Republican National Committee at various times through history, most recently during the past three years. Michael Steele opposes the death penalty and supports affirmative action, unlike most Republicans.

    Steele says he want more discrimination against White-owned businesses

    Michael chaired a 17-member task force devoted to reforming Maryland’s Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), which works to provide more opportunities for minority-owned small businesses and further spur job growth and economic vitality. There are 82,000 minority-owned businesses in the state, accounting for 20% of all Maryland firms. Maryland ranks 2nd in the nation in having the most minority-owned businesses.

    Source: Campaign site, MichaelSteeleForMaryland.com, “On the Issues” May 2, 2006


    Steele wants stronger gun control laws and harder enforcement of the draconian laws on the books


    Steele: “Society should draw lines. What do you need an assault weapon for, if you’re going hunting? That’s overkill. But I don’t think that means you go to a total ban for those who want to use gun for skeet shooting or hunting or things like that But what’s the point of passing gun laws if we’re not going to enforce them? If you want to talk about gun control, that’s where you need to start. We’ve got 300 gun laws on the books right now. At the end of the day, it’s about how we enforce the law.”

    Source: Washington Post interview Oct 16, 2006


    Opposed to the death penalty and thinks that it is disproportionately applied to Blacks (When in fact Whites receive a dramatically disproportionate percentage of death penalties.


    Steele is personally opposed to the death penalty, but he has not publicly expressed his opinion on two executions [in Maryland]. Nor, he said, did he privately try to dissuade Gov. Ehrlich from signing the execution orders. He did, however, volunteer to undertake a study of the fairness of the death penalty to determine if minorities and the poor in Maryland receive a disproportionate share of death sentences. But that was in 2003, and three years later he has still not produced a finished report.

    Source: By Michael Sokolove, New York Times Mar 26, 2006


    Would still vote for the Iraq war even there were no weapons of mass destruction

    I would think we’d still prosecute the war. But what I would do, if we’re going to do it, let’s make sure we have the right complement of personnel on the ground and that we are looking forward in this and not looking backwards. And that’s where I am right now: What are we going to do, what is our strategy to begin to move our soldiers home and have Iraqi government and leadership move forward and keeping what they want in Iraq?

    Source: 2006 Maryland Senate debate on Meet the Press Oct 29, 2006


    Works against the American business and their workers


    Steele Supports Free Trade and actually led a trade mission to Africa where he called for no tariffs on these nation’s products where workers are paid a few cents per day. Such a policy would of course undermine American companies, American employment and wages.

    “As Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor, Michael Steele led an historic trade mission to Ghana and South Africa to advance opportunities for small businesses in Maryland to bring their goods and services to the global market. In the United States Senate, Michael Steele will continue a growth-oriented dialogue with countries all over the world to advance the interests of Maryland businesses and to help them compete in an ever-changing global economy.”

    Betrays the Republican base states!


    Can Michael Steele lead GOP out of woods? Republican National Committee picks first black chair


    By RICHARD SISK Daily News Washington Bureau, January 30th 2009
    “Steele quickly pledged to break the current mold of the GOP as a southern and southwestern stronghold and reach out to reclaim the party’s former base in New York and the Northeast.”

    David Duke took time out from selling pencils to insult a fellow racist?

    David Duke ran and was elected as a republican. Who wants to say the republicans aren't racist?

    This loathsome speciman ran and was in both parties - post Klan.

    David Duke ran as a Democrat for the Louisiana Senate in 1975.

    In 1988, he ran in the Democratic presidential primaries.

    He switched parties and later ran as a Republican.

    I can't even read his article. I've heard it all before.

    and if he had won as a democrat, the dems would have been fine with it. they allowed him to run on their ticket.

    the actions of both parties in allowing his name to be affiliated with theirs were equally despicible.

    Curiously, when he won his one term seat in congress he won by about 200 votes...against another repub. the dems didn't have a candidate in the race.

    Can you stop someone from running on your ticket? I honestly don't know--just asking.

    It probably varies from state to state- but in my state they can expel you from the party if it is determined that the party enrollee is not "in sympathy" with party principles.

    They probably had some obscure clause they could have used.

    I saw a very interesting docu on PBS about Duke and his followers that had all this in it a few years back. It was called Backlash.

    Let's roll back here and look at the makeup of the area Duke ran from.

    That area is notoriously racist. That area is the same one black people were shot in after Katrina. It was the same one in which vigilantes decided to take advantage of little to no police presence. Some say the police were involved. LA and MS still have KKK marches and public rallies.

    Duke ran on the democratic ticket unsuccessfully. Anyone who meets LA's requirements to campaign for an office can run and choose his party. Democrats in LA and MS are historically the ones the bible belt brethren despise. He stood no chance of winning. He switched to Republican, realizing the dixiecrat dems were now Repubs. He won the seat with his history being publicized. I remember the outrage when he was elected.

    I have met southern Republicans and southern Democrats. I won't name names, but every Republican I met won me over with their arrogance, smarminess, and general overall untrustworthy vibe. They are exactly the assholes they appear to be.

    Steele's stupidity is already showing. He just said the other day that 'never in the history of mankind has the government ever created one job.'
