…and so it begins: David Duke proudly says Trump owes his victory to the good ol’ boys and their Confederate flags!!…by Chuck Duboff

UPDATED:  not two minutes after this blog was published…a good friend of mine sent me a note that what upsets him the most is that he is afraid to say anything for fear of retribution…and he lives here in Manitoba, Canada.

Early Wednesday morning, former KKK leader David Duke tweeted that Trump owes his victory to “THE SOUTH” alongside an image of whites waving Confederate flags.

David Duke, who once led the neo-Nazi, white-supermacist organization, tweeted the claim on election night.

“This is one of the most exciting nights of my life,” Mr Duke wrote.

“Make no mistake about it, our people have played a huge role in electing Trump!”

A young black girl was told when she got on the school bus Wednesday morning: “you should go sit in the back of the bus.”

After 8 years of a black president and the possibility of a woman in the presidency…these election results were a backlash by White America…a repudiation of social progress and most sadly a President elect who legitimized racism, sexism , hatred, xenophobia, misogyny, intolerance and bullying.

Sitting in a coffee shop writing these words…people seem numb and zombie like.

As I stated earlier this morning…I couldn’t feel more grateful being Canadian.  We are blessed to live in a country which at the very least has a goal of tolerance and decency…we may not be there, but I wouldn’t want to live in any other country in the world.
