Last quote about Ku Klux Klan

Tim Scott
The reason I feel uncomfortable condemning the [Ku Klux] Klan types is they're almost the poorest of the poor. They're the forgotten Americans. They have been used, abused and neglected. Instead of giving them affordable health care, they give them black lung jobs.feedback

Susan Bro

I have not and now I will not. I hadn't really watched the news until last night and I'm not talking to the president now, I'm sorry, after what he said about my child. It's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters … with the KKK and the white supremacists. You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, I'm sorry.' I'm not forgiving for that.feedback

Ted Cruz

The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate.feedback

Gabriel Cis

The violence I've seen in the country, lately, is the kind of thing that lead to the Holocaust in the first place. I always knew there was hatred with the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists, but it's as if lately they feel they can get away with their hurtful beliefs.feedback

Stephen Colbert

David Duke complimenting your courage – that's like Jeffrey Dahmer complimenting your cooking.feedback

Charles Krauthammer

To critique what he did today on the grounds that it distracts from the agenda or it was a tactical mistake, I believe is a cop out. What Trump did today was a moral disgrace. What he did is he reverted back to where he was on Saturday and made it very clear that what he read on … Monday, two days later, was a hostage tape. Clearly reading off a prompter, saying these denunciations by name of the KKK, et cetera. That wasn't Trump speaking, that was the aides speaking.feedback

Walter Greason

Historically it's more dangerous as an employee to be associated with racial justice and the NAACP, than it was to be affiliated with the KKK.feedback

Michael McCaul

We must stand together and reject racism, bigotry, and prejudice, including the hateful ideologies promoted by neo-Nazis, the KKK, and all other white supremacy groups.feedback

Jerome Almon

I wanted to help him. This whole political bread and circuses needs to stop. Black Lives Matter is just as racist as the Nazis or the KKK or anyone else.feedback

Ronna Romney McDaniel

When it comes to Charlottesville, the blame lays squarely at the KKK and the white supremacists who organised this rally and put together an entire event around hate and bigotry. I don't think comparing blame works in this situation because we know what initiated the violence and the death of this young woman whose life was taken too soon.feedback

Rahm Emanuel

In a week in which the Trump Administration is being forced to answer questions about neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the KKK, they could not have picked a worse time to resume their attack on the immigrants who see America as a beacon of hope. Chicago will continue to stand up proudly as a welcoming city, and we will not cave to the Trump administration's pressure because they are wrong morally, wrong factually and wrong legally.feedback

Kevin Kruse

I think it shows that this sort of false equivalence that Trump's been in engaging in with Charlottesville is something we've seen before – and we've seen it before in almost this exact context.feedback

Steven Goldstein

Though the president finally mentioned, after long, painful three days, the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists, again he insisted on saying 'others'. And the president made it worse. He said we should all be united, but there's no way on God's earth will we ever unite with Nazis. That is not what the Greatest Generation fought and died for.feedback

Leonard Lance

Mr. President, there is only one side: AGAINST white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites & the KKK. They have no place in America or GOP.feedback

Mitch McConnell

The white supremacist, KKK, and neo-Nazi groups who brought hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington. Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America. We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-Nazis, and those who espouse their views are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms. We all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head.feedback

Dan Sullivan

Anything less than complete & unambiguous condemnation of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK by the @POTUS is unacceptable. Period.feedback

Logan Smith

Intimidation tactics are how these people work – it's how they've worked back since the days of the KKK burning crosses in people's yards. That's how they win. Bigotry thrives on silence. It requires people to say nothing – and I refuse to let that happen.feedback

Richard L. Trumka - AFL-CIO

We cannot sit on a council for a President that tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism. President Trump's remarks today repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and new-Nazis. We must resign on behalf of America's working people, who reject all notions of legitimacy of these bigoted groups.feedback

Jerrold Nadler

Congress needs to send a clear message that white supremacy and Nazi sympathy is not the official position of the United States government. Donald Trump's attempt to create a moral equivalency between white supremacist, KKK, neo-Nazi groups and those counter-protesting the 'Unite the Right' rally is morally repugnant and completely unacceptable from the President of the United States. With President Trump's re-assertion that 'both sides' were to blame, Congress must publicly censure and condemn the President for his conduct.feedback

Nicola Sturgeon

When the likes of David Duke praise you, you are on the wrong side. There are no 'fine' Nazis. We must all stand firm against far right.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

What happened was a group of the far right turned up in Charlottesville – KKK supporters, Nazis, white supremacists – in order to cause trouble. A group of people objected to their presence and there is no equivalence between both sides. I can find nothing decent about anything the KKK or Nazis say or have ever said. Surely for goodness sake have we not learnt the lessons of what happened in the earlier part of the 20th century, surely we have learned the lessons of the brave people that marched from Selma to Montgomery, there can be no return to those days.feedback

Marco Rubio

These groups today use SAME symbols & same arguments of #Nazi & #KKK, groups responsible for some of worst crimes against humanity ever. Mr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame. They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain.feedback

Mike Cernovich

It energized the base. Losers like Richard Spencer and David Duke will try to dick ride it, but Trump specifically disavowed neo-Nazis and white nationalists.feedback

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Blaming 'both sides' for #Charlottesville?! No. Back to relativism when dealing with KKK, Nazi sympathizers, white supremacists? Just no. White supremacists, Neo-Nazis and anti-Semites are the antithesis of our American values. There are no other 'sides' to hatred and bigotry.feedback

Donald J. Trump

As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence. It has no place in America. And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied...truly bad people! Meanwhile: 39 shootings in Chicago this weekend, 9 deaths. No national media outrage. Why is that?feedback

Abraham Cooper - Simon Wiesenthal Center

We have a new-generation of extremists not driven by David Duke... but Richard Spencer and (Daily Stormer founder) Andrew Anglin. Not all the blame is on the Internet, but the social media world should reflect the mores of the real world. I fear young people who don't understand history are being victimized by extremists at each end.feedback

Dante Plush

Now we have white supremacists walking in the daylight. That illusion of a post-racial America was shattered this weekend. He [Trump] emboldened these people. It's another opportunity for groups like the KKK to be mainstream again.feedback

Morgan Halberg

He gave them a platform. He knows this is his base. He knows they're acting in his name. His response today was obviously pressured and weakly-worded. It's sad that we have a president that can't condemn one of the easiest groups in history to condemn. It took until today to say the words KKK, neo-Nazi.feedback

Will Hurd

I don't think anybody should be looking at getting props from a Grand Dragon of the KKK as any kind of sign of success. Apologize. Racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism of any form is unacceptable. The leader of the free world should be unambiguous about that.feedback

Seth Meyers

Just a reminder, this guy thinks he's a member of a master race when in fact he's Beavis's rotting corpse. So, you've got the former leader of the KKK saying explicitly that the Nazis and white supremacist who rallied in Charlottesville were doing so in Donald Trump's name. Normally, you might think any president or any decent human being would want to swiftly and unequivocally disavow him. In this case, we also happen to have a president who has no problem quickly condemning things when he feels like it.feedback

Seth Meyers

There should be no doubt about who these people were or what they believed in. They told us in their own words and actions with Confederate flags, Nazi flags, Nazi slogans and Nazi salutes. And just to make it perfectly clear who these vile bigots think their allies are, here's former KKK leader David Duke, who also showed up in Charlottesville. Remember, Trump at first refused to reject Duke's endorsement during the campaign and Duke picked up what Trump was putting down loud and clear.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists. So, after decades of White Americans being targeted for discriminated & anti-White hatred, we come together as a people, and you attack us? That's what we believed in - that's why we voted for Donald Trump.feedback

John Oliver

I've got to say, David Duke and the Nazis really seem to like Donald Trump, which is weird because Nazis are a lot like cats. If they like you, it's probably because you're feeding them. And that kind of connection is something that anyone in their right mind would want to immediately disavow. Don't take that from me. White nationalists seemed pretty clear about the message Trump had sent to them with his response. Trump's comments were good. No condemnation at all. When asked to condemn he just walked out of the room. God bless him.feedback

Jeff Sessions

It was a good statement, delivered just a few hours after the event. The next day, they explicitly called out the Nazis and the KKK.feedback

Pamela Buckner

Everything's not okay. Everyone is on pins and needles in Charlottesville. It's a whole lot of these racists and Nazis and KKK, and it ain't over yet. There's going to be more tragedy and more death. I think it's crazy as hell.feedback

Larry Sabato

We'll get past it, but it isn't going to be easy. That serpentine David Duke is right when he says, We'll be back.' He's right.feedback

Michael Caputo

America is being destroyed by people on both sides thinking that the other side destroying the world. America is being moved into chaos by people on both sides who think that they're better than anyone else on the other side. With the rhetoric gets heightened, you know, turns violent, and eventually you have to racist KKK fighting the fascist Antifa in the streets of Charlottesville. Both sides showed up with helmets and weapons. The President is never going to check all your boxes… His statement was strong. If you didn't think it was strong, you weren't listening.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists. It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.feedback

Erik Wemple

It wasn’t something inane that Jeffrey Lord said on CNN’s airwaves, like the time he spoke about places in Upstate New York that are “seen as Muslim training camps.” Or the time that he performed a history-stretching act to justify candidate Donald Trump’s call for a Muslim ban. Or the time he talked about the Ku Klux Klan being a “leftist hate group.”.feedback

Sean Gillespie

I have attempted suicide several times over the last few years and just a few months ago cut an artery on my arm, losing 2 pints of blood. So I struggle with happiness. Prison can drain all the reserves you have.feedback

Stacy Nelson

It was there that I changed my views on race. I started to question my past and realized that I did not like what I had become.feedback

Sean Gillespie

Man's goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished. I did some terrible things, but now I'm trying to let that goodness shine.feedback

Sean Gillespie

One of the white gangs in here is passing out wanted posters with my face on it.feedback

Barry Cohen

I can only ask what kind of person Mr. Gillespie is going to be when his prison term is concluded. Will he have hatred that is honed by decades of neo-Nazi affiliation, indoctrination, or will he be ready to return to society?feedback

Sean Gillespie

So I can just imagine the traumatic atmosphere that your grandmother experienced. To me, what your teacher said is REAL racism. I am sorry this happened to you.feedback

Vered Harris

Our faith teaches that a person can make teshuvah, a turning towards righteous behavior. I pray that your path of teshuvah allows you to live a life of peaceful purpose.feedback

Stacy Nelson

It's weird to find yourself identifying with someone who once had so much hostility toward people who look like you.feedback

Kevin Fornshill

He needs, I don't want to say a lifeline, but a purpose day-to-day. Corresponding with students means a lot to him.feedback

Sean Gillespie

I am going to firebomb it with a Molotov cocktail. I will film it for your viewing enjoyment, my kindred. White power.feedback

Sean Gillespie

I used to hate seeing inter-racial relationships on T.V. I would cuss my television or change the channel. So I forced myself to watch this.feedback

Stacy Nelson

I think it's sad that my grandma has put herself in a little box, separated from the rest of the world. I too have had things in my past that were traumatic enough to cause me to hate others.feedback

Sean Gillespie

It does give me a sense of happiness that I am no longer full of senseless hate.feedback

Jen Matthies

We have over 100 actors. Of course, some play one part, some play several. And we have more characters that we have actors. That is an obscene amount of faces to build. So we looked for any opportunity to save face.feedback

Mike Signer

Our approach all the way through, from our police chief on down, has been to urge people not to take this totally discredited fringe organization's putrid bait at all. The only thing they seem to want is division and confrontation and a twisted kind of celebrity. The most successful defiance will be to refuse to take their bait and continue to tell our story. Then their memory of Charlottesville will be of a community that repudiated them by not getting drawn into their pathetic drama.feedback

Douglas Barker

We're the only organization in America who are fighting for white civil rights.feedback

Kyle Printz

That would kind of serve everybody. I don't think they're as racial as they used to be.feedback

Mike Signer

I see this as analogous to internet trolling, where the trolls' victory is to pull you into their twisted sick orbit.feedback

Michael Elder

My biggest disappointment is that there are not enough minorities here having our voice heard on issues that affect us directly.feedback

Mark Heisey

That's been the city's approach to racism for decades – to ignore it and hope it goes away.feedback

Joann McCracken

The history that I was taught in school is nothing like the history the kids are being taught today. If they want to get rid of it, I'd be glad to take it to my house and put it in my yard. It's heritage, not hate. That statue has been here for years and years and years. Why worry about it now? You can't change the past, and fussing about it is just going to ruin the future for kids.feedback

Grace Aheron

We want them to know there's no platform for white supremacy. They say to ignore them and that they're just a small group, but we've watched the rise of many people, including our current president, who hold many similar views. It's enraging that the city would give a permit to a known terrorist organization.feedback

Mike Signer

Public safety is our most sacrosanct duty to our public and our visitors. If any one of these people breaks any law, including those governing assault and disorderly conduct, they will be swiftly dealt with and brought to justice.feedback

Richard Harwood - The Washington Post

We ran into the passageway, and he was lying on the cement floor, bleeding from the right side of his head. He looked dead. The kitchen erupted into madness.feedback

George Clark

Men passing and returning soon found Mr. Hinds lying in the road still alive and rational, but conscious of the fact that his wound was of such serious nature that but a few moments more remained of his earthly career.feedback

Naomi Klein

It is more Le Pen equals David Duke [former leader of the Ku Klux Klan]. If David Duke got the percentage of the vote that Le Pen got, we would be terrified, as well we should be. The UK election really showed the power of leading with substance and ideas, rather than slick packaging and fear. The more May tried to exploit people's fear and shock – telling them they might need to give up their privacy and human rights to fight terror, that they should delegate their rights to her – the more [Corbyn's] message of hope, that positive 'yes' looked like the better option to many people.feedback

Lee Garrett

What's the difference between the NAACP [National Association for the Advancement of Colored People] and the KKK [Ku Klux Klan]? Wait for it….. One has the sense of shame to cover their racist ass faces.feedback

Lee Garrett

Guys … when is the last time YOU actually saw a pretty feminist? There is a reason for this. I do hate Islam.feedback

Tim Kaine

You can take Duke out of the Ku Klux Klan, but you can't take the kook out of David Duke.feedback

Mike Signer

This event involving torches at night in Lee Park was either profoundly ignorant or was designed to instill fear in our minority populations in a way that hearkens back to the days of the KKK. Either way, as Mayor of this City, I want everyone to know this: we reject this intimidation. We are a welcoming City, but such intolerance is not welcome here.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

The Trump people are really coming in en masse. Also other patriotic groups: Sons of Confederate Veterans, League of the South. The white people in this country realize there's a war against our heritage. I don't want to give them a rallying point. People may join hands and arms and protect the monument in great numbers.feedback

Steve Fitzgerald

How about if I make a donation in your name to the Ku Klux Klan and publish it? If somebody made a donation to the Ku Klux Klan in your name and published it, how would you feel? What would you do? How would you react? Wouldn't it be controversial for you to deny that or to denounce that in the strongest possible terms?feedback

Jeff Kaufmann

First of all, I do not agree with Congressman King's statement. We are a nation of immigrants, and diversity is the strength of any nation and any community. Regarding David Duke, his words and sentiments are absolute garbage. He is not welcome in our wonderful state.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

The Zionists have already ethnically cleansed the Palestinians, why not do the same thing to Europeans and Americans as well? No group on earth fights harder for its interests than do the Jews. By dividing a society they can weaken it and control it.feedback

Yvette Cooper

You allow David Duke to upload an entire video which is all about malicious and hateful comments about Jewish people. How on earth is that not a breach of your own guidelines? I think most people would be appalled by that video and think it goes against all standards of public decency in this country. We understand the challenges you face ... but you all have millions of users in the UK and you make billions of pounds from these users. You all have a terrible reputation among users for dealing swiftly with problems in content even against your own community standards.feedback

Zach Jacobsen

Law enforcement was attacked terribly on Facebook and officers were called in on their days off to help. At the end of the day, the professionalism shined through all the negativity and we were able to bring some closure to the family.feedback

Malissa Ancona

Frank and I weren't getting along too well. We were working on our marriage. He told me when he got back he was filing for divorce and took a bag of clothes with him.feedback

William Dickey

She stated she did it because when he said he was leaving to go out of state on this job, he took a bag of clothes with him and said when he got back, he was filing for divorce.feedback

Ted Cruz

Listen, the Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan. You look at the most racist, you look at the people – the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, who imposed Jim Crow laws, who founded the Klan. The Klan was founded by a great many Democrats and now the Democrats just accuse anyone they disagree with of being a racist. That was a false smear of Jeff Sessions and I think he's going to make an extraordinary AG.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I was accused in 1986 of failing to protect the voting rights of African-Americans […] and of condemning civil rights advocates and organizations and even harbouring, amazingly, sympathies for the KKK. These are damnably false charges. I abhor the Klan and what it represents and its hateful ideology.feedback

Sophie Bjork-James

They are not simply conservative or alt-right, but actually espousing racist ideas and racist goals. They won't agree with this label, but I think it is important to be clear about what they represent and what their goals are.feedback

Don Black

White supremacy is a legitimate term, though not usually applicable as used by the media. I think it's popular as a term of derision because of the implied unfairness, and, like 'racism,' it's got that 'hiss' (and, like 'hate' and 'racism,' frequently 'spewed' in headlines).feedback

Dylann Roof

We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no-one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.feedback

Jay Richardson

We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

Make no mistake about it, our people have played a huge role in electing Trump!feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

It's not that some people on the margins, as in any movement, aren't bad guys - racists, anti-Semites. But that's irrelevant.feedback

Adam Jentleson

President-elect Trump's choice of Steve Bannon as his top aide signals that white supremacists will be represented at the highest levels in Trump's White House. It is easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of white-supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide.feedback

Adam Jentleson

It is easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of white supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide ... Sworn testimony in a court case alleged that Bannon committed violent domestic abuse and stated that he 'didn't want the girls going to school with Jews.feedback

Pastor Thomas Robb

Make America Great Again!' It is a slogan that has been repeatedly used by Donald Trump in his campaign for the presidency. You can see it on the shirts, buttons, posters and ball caps such as the one being worn here by Trump speaking at a recent rally . . . But can it happen? Can America really be great again? This is what we will soon find out!feedback

Michael Lawrence

Donald Trump is championing issues that David Duke brought forward decades ago, and we continue to support the Trump campaign.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

I believe my time has come. The people of this country, the patriotic, decent, God-fearing people of this country are now right with me.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

I'm overjoyed to see Donald Trump and most Americans embrace most of the issues that I've championed for years. My slogan remains America first. I believe in equal rights for all and respect for all Americans. However, what makes me different is I also demand respect for the rights and heritage of European Americans.feedback

Hillary Clinton

The leading Republican contender is the man who led the insidious birther movement to discredit the president's citizenship. And when he was asked in a national television interview to disavow David Duke and other white supremacists who are supporting his campaign, he played coy. We cannot let Barack Obama's legacy fall into Donald Trump's hands.feedback

Beth Fukumoto-Chang

I don't think the Republican nominee should be somebody who can't say they don't support the Ku Klux Klan, who can say something like maybe he would allow Japanese-American internment, or that he wants to round up all the Muslims.feedback

John Cornyn

You will find candidates who will have to separate themselves from the party's nominee if somebody like him is the nominee. Some of the controversial statement he's made, for example, not disavowing David Duke when he had the opportunity to do so, he seems like he would be a lightning rod.feedback

Mitch McConnell

Let me make it perfectly clear: Senate Republicans condemn David Duke, the KKK, and his racism. That is not the view of Republicans that have been elected to the United States Senate, and I condemn his comments in the most forceful way.feedback

Brian Levin

Were so angry, they would have torn these folks limb from limb.feedback

Brian Levin

We're a far cry from those terrible times and the Klan is really an anachronism. Anaheim is now a diverse community that is in many ways an amusement and sports capital of California. This is just an example of how a small group of people can tarnish the name of a community.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

I'm not saying I endorse everything about Trump, in fact I haven't formally endorsed him. But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do. Get off your duff. Get off your rear end that's getting fatter and fatter for many of you every day on your chairs. When this show's over, go out, call the Republican Party, but call Donald Trump's headquarters, volunteer.feedback

David Duke - Ku Klux Klan

Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage. I think he deserves a close look by those who believe the era of political correctness needs to come to an end.feedback
