David Duke and Donald Trump; Fellow Travelers....Boston Globe

Here is an article that appeared in today's Boston Globe.

<snip>His calculation now is obvious: If the Louisiana voters of 2016 are embracing one resentment-fueled grifter, surely they can handle another. In a campaign video, Duke said he was “overjoyed” to see Trump “embrace most of the issues I’ve championed for years.”

Ordinarily, you shouldn’t judge candidates by their most inflammatory, least reputable fellow travelers. Just because David Duke supports immigration controls doesn’t mean no mainstream politician should ever do the same.

But when Trump’s outlook and style align with Duke’s in so many ways — some of which are quite peculiar — you have to ask: How did a celebrity developer from New York and a professional racist from Louisiana end up with the same set of issues? <snip>
