TwitterStorm on David Duke

Here is the Twitter storm I released on David Duke yesterday, after he announced he was running for the U.S. Senate again, in Louisiana. As most of you know, I got my start doing antiracism work in the fight against Duke in 1990 and 1991. This is just a brief and incomplete timeline of Duke’s Neo-Nazi extremism over the years, from the late 1960s until the early 2000s. Since then he has continued in the same vein, on his internet radio show and in writing on his website.

One correction: because these are tweet embeds below, and you can’t edit tweets after they’re published (for some reason), I was unable to fix the spelling on the island nation of Dominica, which I originally misspelled as Domenica. I mention it below, because in 1980, David Duke helped a band of Neo-Nazis raise money and procure a boat for an attempted invasion of that nation. They were hoping to set up a cocaine processing plant to fund white supremacist activity. Duke avoided indictment in the plot, though his friends did not. Anyway, I wanted to correct the spelling, because as it was listed originally, I had basically accused Duke of helping to launch a coup attempt on one of New Orleans’ better restaurants, rather than a small Caribbean island. Wanted to set the record straight.

Here ya go…
