Earlier this week Amy Goodman, "for balance" did an exposure of Donald
Trump's racism by reporting that David Duke was supporting him. It was a
purposely weak "exposure" because it is so easy to defend against. Donald
Trump can rightly complain that he has no control over who voices support
for him and that is absolutely true.

Another Marxmail member took the same approach today by posting an
endorsement for Clinton from a CA Klan leader. When you drill down into the
story its clear this guy is endorsing Clinton as a Klan leader because it
would get him a lot of publicity.

Again, Clinton and no more stop this guy from speaking to the press no more
than Trump can stop Duke.

If Amy really wanted to expose Trump's connection to white nationalist she
would have covered some of the same material I have used about white
nationalists that Trump has endorsed by bringing them into his campaign.
Wer's was clearly a fake exposure.

That can also cover the case were the Klan endorsed Goldwater. The
important question that must follow is how did Goldwater respond to that
endorsement?

candidate as racist as Trump and you both have failed miserably to make
your case.
