Old Tape of Scott Walker Talking About David Duke Reveals that Walker has Always Been a Nihilistic Fruitcake

In 1992, David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, was seeking to be put on the presidential ballot in Wisconsin. As this was an embarassment for the Republican party, they sought to block Duke from the ballot. Scott Walker was working for the Republican Party of Wisconsin at the time and appeared with Duke on Milwaukee Public Television's "Smith & Company" to discuss the matter.

So, seems like an easy gig, right? Go on the show, condemn Duke as an extremist, racist, nut job and say his views aren't representative of the Republican Party.

Instead, Walker went on the show and made a point of saying that he was condemning Duke for his past involement in the KKK and not for "issues" he was then bringing-up. In fact, Walker went out of way to say that issues Duke was talking were not extreme, saying:

The distinction we're making is not one of saying his issues are extreme, they certainly are not.

Allow me to remind you who we're talking about: David Freakin' Duke! Trying to find something that he is saying that is not extreme or legitimate is extremely difficult task, which makes Walker's qualified condemnation of Duke all the more absurd and troubling.

So what are some of the post-KKK Duke "issues" that Walker says are not extreme?

How about this:

We (Whites) desire to live in our own neighborhoods, go to our own schools, work in our own cities and towns, and ultimately live as one extended family in our own nation.

Or how about this holocaust-denying "issue":

You can't find one written order to one commander at any of these camps which says 'Exterminate the Jews.'

Or about this Headline from an AP article 1990?

Senate Candidate David Duke Fanning the Flames of Racism

Only a complete nihilistic fruitcake would charactorize David Dukes at the time as not being extreme. (Yes, I'm saying Walker is a nihilistic fruitcake.)

Walker also makes the hilariously loony argument that David Duke was the "creation of the media." Yes, it was all a conspiracy of the leftwing media! Recruit a former KKK grand wizard, have him get elected to public office Louisiana, and have him win the primary for governor. Yes, that sounds like a "media creation."

Attached are some excerpts of Walker's statements. The complete video is available here.
