It’s unclear just how big a deal campaign endorsements actually are. What is clear is that you’ll give one if you are a big deal. I can’t imagine John McCain and Barack Obama have been clamoring for endorsements from racial supremacists and neo-Nazis, but Esquire spoke with a few of these hatemongers and found out who they’re voting for.
The concept to me is beyond comical, though I’m sure a lot of people think it was ill advised to give a serious platform to these guys. (I heard the same when The Jewish Journal put Kevin MacDonald on its cover.) Surprisingly, they aren’t all fans of the white candidate:
“Personally,” he continued, “I’d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation, who supports the invasion of America by illegals—basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women—when usually negroes who have ‘made it’ immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize—that’s the kind of negro that I can respect. Any time that a prominent person embraces their racial heritage in a positive manner, it’s good for all racially minded folks. Besides, America cares nothing for the interests of the white American worker, while having a love affair with just about every non-white on planet Earth. It’d be poetic justice to have a non-white as titular chief over this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah.”
