David Duke: hey, where's my Lifetime Achievement Award from the NAACP?

Waiting for the phone to ring...

[Dissociated Press] David Duke is waiting. Patiently. Tapping his fingers.

"Why haven't they called?" the former Grand Wizard and lifelong racist asked, staring at the phone.

Yesterday this reporter had the rare opportunity to interview the American White nationalist, writer, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, former Republican Louisiana state representative, candidate in the Democrat and Republican presidential primaries in 1988 and 1992, and general-purpose racist. Emeritus Grand Wizard Duke has been considerably miffed about revelations accompanying the scandal over Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling's recent racist remarks.

"Hell", Duke said, cocking his hooded head in the living room of his three-room trailer. "Sterling has been a racist all his life-- a real nasty jerk. So why does he get a Lifetime Achievement Award from the... the... the frackin' NAACP?!"

Duke's neck, visible along the skirt of his hood, turned red. 

"I mean the old cradle-robber Sterling actually paid a $2.7 million dollar fine to the Justice Department in 2009, after he paid a fine of $4.9 in 2005, for denying housing to blacks and Koreans! Then, right after he paid the last fine for racism, in 2009, the NAACP gave him an achievement award. And this month he was scheduled to get another one!"

Duke slammed his pasty fist on the laminate table.

 "I might have a few opinions that the NAACP don't like, but heck, I'm not a convicted racist or nothin'. I never broke no law. Why the heck ain't I getting no award from the NAACP? I ain't done half the racist stuff Sterling did."

Duke sat silently, staring at the telephone on the table.

I broke the silence. I asked: so why do you think hasn't the NAACP given you a "Lifetime Achievement Award"?

Duke lifted his sheet, pulled his wallet out of his back pocket, and fingered it wistfully.
"I guess my resume wasn't thick enough for the NAACP".

  1. A post mocking the NAACP featuring a hooded clansman. What a surprise, that’s so out of character for a self-proclaimed non-racist. Everyone lighten-up; it’s just a joke, unlike Jews, it’s still ok to mock black people.

      Wrong again, Popeye. The LA chapter of the NAACP is self-mocking...

      re: Leon Jenkins, Erstwhile President, LA Chapter
      In 1988, federal prosecutors charged Jenkins with extortion and racketeering conspiracy, saying he requested and received money, jewelry, a handgun and other gifts to dismiss traffic tickets and other misdemeanors. While Jenkins was acquitted after two trials, in 1991 the Michigan Supreme Court [disbarred and] removed him as a judge.

      He had "systematically and routinely sold his office and his public trust," then-Chief Justice Michael Cavanagh said at the time.

      In April, three judges with California's State Bar Court denied Jenkins' most recent request to practice law again. The judges lauded Jenkins' volunteer work with the NAACP and other organizations, but they cited several instances in which they said he misrepresented his finances or other aspects of his personal life.

      By the way, former Chief Justice Michael Cavanagh is a frequent and generous donor to the delightfully-named Michigan Democratic State Central Committee, among other Democrat PACs and candidates.

      So I suppose he's a racist too, given that he disbarred Jenkins.

    3. Nothing in the post indicated Egnor supporting the KKK. He was making the point that the corrupt NAACP will shower racists with awards as long as they donate money. Call it a protection racket, if you will. It's really quite funny, a thing called satire, which I guess you don't understand.

    You should label that image properly:

  3. KW:

    How do you feel about the NAACP repeatedly honoring rich racists?

    Do you think that Sterling's wealth had anything to do with the honor?

    Do you think that the fact that the LA NAACP chief is a disbarred former judge who took bribes has anything to do with the awards?

    1. If the NAACP is doing good work with the money from the public relations efforts of a few rich racists, more power to them. I’m sure they would happily take you money too.

      Poploid: "If the NAACP is doing good work with the money from the public relations efforts of a few rich racists, more power to them"

      You feel the same way about the Cosa Nostra? Hamas? Aryan Brotherhood? New Nation of Islam?

    3. Oh, I'm sure they did lots of "good" with that money. And since the only way to get it was to award the rich racist with an award (call it his get out of jail free card) it's all fair game.

      Rush Limbaugh's got a lot of money. Would they give him an award if he wrote a check large enough?

      I'd like one of those awards too. What's the going price of the NAACP's integrity these days? Just tell me and I'll see if I can swing it.

    4. So Boggs, the NAACP is equivalent to the Aryan Brotherhood and Hamas? Wow, when most people find themselves in a hole they stop digging; not you though. What next, you going to volunteer that the picture above is actually you?

      Ben, don’t you realize that by suggesting that the NAACP would have no integrity if they gave you award you have all but admitted to being a racist?

      Popster: "So Boggs, the NAACP is equivalent to the Aryan Brotherhood and Hamas"

      What a coincidence! That's exactly what I asked you, Poploid. They both do charitable work, and you say you don't care that the NAACP elects disbarred, impeached judges as officers and takes money from known racists. Why stop with black organizations? Are you a RAAAAAACIST?

      Not only can't you justify your position, Popster, you can't even think up your own questions.

    9. My position is you’re a racist and an asshole, to justify it all I have to do is keep you writing. Keep it up, you’re doing great.

      Oh dear! I'm so upset! Your anonymous troll opinion has so much influence in the world!

      And yeah, I am doing great. But you aren't much of an adversary.

    11. You couldn't be more wrong, KW. Any group that grants awards for payment has no integrity. You know this.

      What I'm saying is that they'll give anyone even a racist an award, if the price is right. I'm not saying that racism is a requirement, I'm saying it's not a deal-breaker.

  4. So far response to Donald Sterling’s horribly racist comments Egnor and his trusty side-kick Boggs have attacked All Sharpton, Sonia Sotomayor, and the NAACP.

    But they’re not racist. Really, just ask them, they’re not.

      Attacked?

      How is it an "attack" to quote from an online, left-wing, news outlet's description of the criminal activities, disbarment, and removal from the Michigan bench of the erstwhile President of the LA NAACP?

      Or the "Reverend" Al Sharpton, whose ordination, fraudulent activities, and income tax evasion are all matters of public record and widely published in national media?

      Or Sonia Sotomayor, who - according to you - attacked herself when she read her opinion aloud in court.

      You've completely looned out, son.

    2. In KW's mind, it's racist to point out black and Latino racists who really dig white racists who donate lots of money.

  5. The NAACP has been morally bankrupt for quite some time. I think they used to stand for something but not in a very long time. It's too bad too, because racism is not dead and people of color face some real challenges. We deserve a much better ally than the NAACP.

  6. Egnor should be getting his own award from the NAACP any day now.
