Jews Have a Way of Bringing People Together

By Jeffrey Goldberg

David Duke, the arch-schmuck of the Ku Klux Klan, is endorsing an anti-Semitic ex-Black Panther candidate for Congress in Brooklyn's 8th district:

Former KKK Grand Wizard and member of the Louisiana Legislature David Duke released a video yesterday endorsing Charles Barron in his race for Brooklyn's 8th Congressional district against Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries. Mr. Barron, a member of the City Council and former member of the Black Panther Party who, over the years, has made a series of controversial statements against Israel and in support of African dictators Muammar Qaddafi. He would seem to be an odd choice for a self-described "white nationalist" like Mr. Duke, but in the video, Mr. Duke explains that he thinks Mr. Jeffries has "sold his soul to the international Zio-bankers" while Mr. Barron's strong past criticisms of Israel outweigh their other differences.

Which goes to show that hatred of Israel, and a belief that the Jews control American foreign policy, among other things, unites the mentally ill of all colors and creeds. I'm just glad we could help people find common ground.
