White nationalist David Duke, formerly the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, has thrown his support behind controversial Brooklyn congressional candidate Charles Barron in an eight-minute-long web video.

“The possible election of a dedicated anti-Zionist to the U.S. Congress has thrown the Zionist influenced media and the Zio-political establishment in a tizzy,” Duke says. “The Jewish-controlled New York media is now calling Barron the, quote, ‘David Duke of New York,’ unquote. I’ve been deluged by media inquiries as to whether I would endorse Barron because of his very strong anti-Zionist and anti-Israel positions.”

“In a race for Congress between an anti-Zionist black activist and a black activist who is a bought and paid for Zionist Uncle Tom, I’ll take the anti-Zionist any day,” Duke explains — the "Zionist Uncle Tom" being Barron's opponent Hakeem Jeffries, the establishment favorite.

Duke's endorsement is set to make Barron's run even more fraught, as establishment Democrats have started to worry that the outspoken and radical Barron could actually have a shot at winning.
