David Duke Accuses GOP of Selling Soul to ‘Jewish Power’, Calls Netanyahu a ‘Crazy Jew’
Former Ku Klux Klan leader and state legislator David Duke accused Republicans of “having sold their soul to the Jewish power” in a radio interview last Wednesday.
Duke made the antisemitic comments to liberal radio host Alan Colmes during an appearance on Fox News Radio.
The infamous hatemonger was responding in particular to the open letter by 47 Republicans that warned Iranian leaders of the limited legal impact of agreements signed in the absence of Senate approval.
Duke told Colmes that the Republicans “should become a Jew, put on a yarmulke because they are not Americans, they have sold their soul to the Jewish power in this country and the Jewish power overseas.”
Later in the interview, Duke referred to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the “Crazy Jew” saying: “The whole Congress of the United States is on its hands and knees to the ‘Crazy Jew.'”
Duke went on to tell Colmes that Republicans “should go to Israel, and if they’re not circumcised, they should get cut. Because they deserve it.”
Later in the interview, Duke accused U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) of being sellouts. Duke said that he was “seriously considering” a run against Scalise.
According to Jewish human rights group the Anti-Defamation League, David Duke “has been active in the white supremacy movement for over 40 years. In the last two decades, he has tried to position himself as a new ‘respectable racist.'”
Bizarrely, Duke expressed frustration during the interview over people highlighting his association with the KKK, even though Duke admitted moments later that he “loved the Klan.”
