Fox News host Bill O’Reilly had former KKK leader David Duke on his show Monday night to discuss the scandal surrounding Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and whether he spoke at a white supremacist event in 2002.
The white supremacist said, “I’m not a white supremacist at all, in fact the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) was a charted civil rights organization.”
Duke said that he fought the “racial discrimination” of affirmative action while serving in Louisiana’s state legislature, according to Talking Points Memo.
O’Reilly brought up the claims that Scalise was a speaker EURO, a group which the notorious former KKK leader founded.
Naturally, Duke soon brought up former Sen. Robert Byrd (D-VA) in a “look over there, it’s my other hand” type of deflection.
Duke danced around the subject saying that Byrd had more ties to the KKK than he did. So it’s all cool, right?
Duke then held a photo of President Obama with Byrd.
“Don’t sit there and tell me you’re not a white — that your organization isn’t looking out for the white, European race,” O’Reilly said.
Duke said he was making sure Europeans aren’t “discriminated against” for jobs or scholarships.
Here it comes.
Duke then took issue with Nelson Mandela and what he deems as media hypocrisy for attacking Scalise but not Mandela’s connections to international communism.
O’Reilly asserted that the media is “sympathetic for the left.”
“You don’t care about the mass media, you know they despise you, and you’re not gonna get a fair shake from them,” O’Reilly declared (out loud).
O’Reilly went back to his previous claim.
“Mr. Duke, don’t sit here and tell me you’re not trying to promote the cause of white people, ’cause you are!” he said.. “The problem with this garbage — on both sides — is that we’re all in it together and skin color doesn’t matter.”
At the end of the clip, Duke confirms to O’Reilly that Scalise was a scheduled speaker at the white supremacist event. He said it twice.
