Our old friend Stephen Green asks a silly question in response to this non-story:
“I’m not really sure why the media keeps dropping David Duke’s name,” Pence said. “Donald Trump has denounced David Duke repeatedly, we don’t want his support and we don’t want the support of people who think like him.”
“You would call him a ‘deplorable’?” Blitzer asked.
“No, I’m not in the name-calling business, Wolf. You know me better than that,” Pence said. “What Hillary Clinton did Friday night is shocking.”
That’s fair enough, and perfectly sensible—a diffident, dismissively nonchalant response to the inevitable and tiresome liberal-media baiting of a Republican candidate. But then Stephen asks:
The Trump campaign spent all of Sunday and Monday deliberately not saying anything which would allow the press to change the subject from Hillary Clinton’s health issues.
On the other hand, who needs an invitation to call David Duke deplorable?
On the other other hand, who needs to bother about David Duke at all? Who the hell cares about him, other than Praetorian Media operatives looking to assist their swinish Party by digging up something they can unfairly tie around conservative necks? Why the hell should we be so eager to dance to their tune like good little puppets when we already know they’ll never pass up an opportunity to call us racists anyway, no matter what we say, what we do, or who we denounce?
When will we finally tire of playing a rigged game under rules we had no say in inventing, on a playing field eternally tilted to the Left—a game that we already know we can never, ever win?
David Duke represents nothing and no one of any importance at all in modern American life. In contrast, nobody bothers asking Hillary when she intends to denounce Ward Churchill, for instance, or any other of a wide, long, and deep rogue’s gallery of Marxist pseudo-intellectuals routinely treated as if they weren’t promoters of the self-same ideology responsible for the deaths of a hundred million people in the 20th century alone…and as if they weren’t staunch allies of the Democrat Socialist Party. So why on earth would anybody think it a good idea for our guy to just sit meekly back and let them dump bucket after bucket of this shit over our heads, instead of treating them with all the respect and deference they’re due—i.e., none whatsoever?
