Drumpf's White Nationalist Backers Attack Merrick Garland For Being Jewish [View all]


White nationalist media figures are launching anti-Semitic attacks against Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, calling him "a Jewish supremacist" and lamenting that the country can't survive a "Minority-Dominated Supreme Court" that "basically gives Jews total veto."

As Media Matters and other outlets have noted, Trump's presidential campaign has received support from numerous white nationalist groups and leaders who have used his campaign to recruit followers, fundraise, and spread their message. Trump has retweeted white nationalists, repeatedly declined to denounce former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke in an interview, and gave press credentials to a white nationalist figure who also interviewed Donald Trump Jr.

Duke is one of the country's most infamous anti-Semites and white nationalists. He's urged his followers to vote for Trump and volunteer for his campaign, saying Trump is "right" on "the crucial issues facing the United States and the world."

During his March 17 radio program, Duke said Garland's nomination demonstrates "the Jewish control of this country," warning "you can count on" the current Jewish justices "to do whatever the Jewish agenda is, whatever the Jewish establishment wants." Duke added that Obama, who is purportedly under "Jewish control," "appointed a Jewish supremacist to be the guy on the Supreme Court, which basically gives Jews total veto over the Supreme Court."

Oy gevalt. To paraphrase Notorious R.B.G., "When will there be enough Jews on the Supreme Court? When there are nine."
