White supremacist groups see Trump bump

Donald Trump 2016: Racist groups traffic spike - POLITICO

Quote:
The Ku Klux Klan is using Donald Trump as a talking point in its outreach efforts. Stormfront, the most prominent American white supremacist website, is upgrading its servers in part to cope with a Trump traffic spike. And former Louisiana Rep. David Duke reports that the businessman has given more Americans cover to speak out loud about white nationalism than at any time since his own political campaigns in the 1990s.

As hate group monitors at the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League warn that Trump’s rhetoric is conducive to anti-Muslim violence, white nationalist leaders are capitalizing on his candidacy to invigorate and expand their movement.

“Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that,” said Stormfront founder Don Black, who reports additional listeners and call volume to his phone-in radio show, in addition to the site’s traffic bump. Black predicts that the white nationalist forces set in motion by Trump will be a legacy that outlives the businessman’s political career. “He’s certainly creating a movement that will continue independently of him even if he does fold at some point.”

Trump can deny he wants this support; but his ideology defines something quite different. Should Trump be held accountable for his hate speech? If so, how? If not, why?

I think it is hilarious that the Stormfront founder has "Black" as his last name. It is also pretty disgusting to have your campaign being connected with such groups and individuals as Stormfront, the KKK and David Duke. What an embarrassment. Way to go Trumper.....
Thanks from LongWinded

Trump is merely associated with those with beliefs that all Right wingers stand for but won't admit to.

There's been a lot of discussion about how the other republican candidates have said what Trump has in a less dramatic fashion. They are all fascists and pushing it harder. George H W BUSH must feel vindicated for his father being threatened to be charged with the Sedition Act for giving money to Hitler's cause.
