Well this was unexpected. From The Telegraph: KKK Leader Endorses Hillary Clinton

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/12192975/The-KKK-leader-who-says-he-backs-Hillary-Clinton.html?sf22520835=1

If Donald Trump is ambivalent about the Ku Klux Klan and other fringe groups he has been linked with, he can rest assured that - for some, at least - the feeling is mutual.

The demagogic Republican frontrunner has come under fire for failing to adequately disavow the support of David Duke, a former KKK grand wizard who told listeners to his radio programme that voting against Mr Trump would be “treason against your heritage”.

Will Quigg, a grand dragon of the Klan’s California chapter and responsible for recruitment in the western United States, is less keen to give Mr Trump the dubious benefit of his support.

“We want Hillary Clinton to win,” Mr Quigg told The Telegraph. “She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colours are going to show.


I'm not even sure what to say about this really. For those ready to wield the hide hammer, read the article first. Pretty sure this guy is just blowing smoke, but you have to wonder what his motivation is.

1. Makes those Inhofe posts from yesterday pretty funny though

 

Hillary supporter "Bernie is friends with Inhofe even though he said they disagree"

Bernie supporter "Hillary has support from the KKK."

2. He's making mischief

The endorsement itself is meaningless, of course.

As best as I can tell, he is trying to drive Democrats to Sanders. But he is so lacking in subtlety, and so unaware of his lack of subtlety, it really shouts to the world what an idiot he is.
