David Duke Qualifies For US Senate Debate

The Baton Rouge Advocate reports:

John Kennedy and Foster Campbell lead the field in the race to qualify for the U.S. Senate runoff less than three weeks before Election Day, an independent poll showed Thursday.

But the biggest news from the poll by Raycom Media may be that David Duke scored just high enough to qualify for the final televised debate during the Senate primary, to be held on Nov. 2 at Dillard University in New Orleans.

“That’s amazing,” Duke said when he learned that he will be invited to participate in the debate, which will be held at the historically black university. He said he planned to attend but expressed concerns about security.

“Dillard is pretty supportive of Black Lives Matter, and I’ve been pretty critical of them,” Duke said. Vicki Zimmerman, the regional news director for Raycom, said she doesn’t expect Duke’s presence to cause security issues.

Kennedy, the Republican state treasurer, had 24.2 percent while Campbell, a Democratic member of the Public Service Commission, received 18.9 percent, in a poll taken for Raycom by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.

    Can’t wait to see David duke it out at Dullard University.
    Opponent: “You are a disgusting nazi and deplorable racist!”
    Duke: “Why thank you!”

    Duke’s been critical of Black Lives Matter? Shut the front door!

    He should practice leaning into the microphone and saying “wrong.”

          Now that I know what YOINK means, I can totally upvote the activity.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        So perfectly right!

      • MT YVR

        Thinking about it… I can easily picture Trump pushing aside Judas and demanding the silver be his, if not it’s a rigged system against hard working people. And he’d outsource his denial of Jeebus to Pence.

        “And on the third crow-” “Trump never met him. Ever.” “you will -” “Not once. Never even heard of him.” “Oh my SELF, shut UP, Mike. No one CARES.”

      • Menergy

        Excellent!!!

    • teeveedub

      The scary thing is that he’s probably already a better debater than tRump.

      • JustSayin’

        Not really..it is dificult for him to say blacks instead of n*******s

        • cowboyinbrla

          Actually no – that’s one thing that makes him scary. He learned back in the 80’s to moderate his tone, if not his positions, which is how he got elected in Louisiana in the first place. He’s very careful to use either ‘blacks’ or ‘African-Americans’ or euphemisms like ‘inner city residents’ when speaking publicly.

    • Mark

      I’m sorry Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.

  • barracks9

    I’m hoping that Duke actually servers as spoiler for Kennedy, a duplicitous, petulant cretin. A quote from his video, as way of example: “I believe that love is the answer…but you ought to own a handgun just in case.”

    Fuck you, you fucking fuck. And take Duke with you.

      Having an “A” rating from the NRA means that you have an “F-” with me. What’s an “F-” you ask? It’s fuck you.

    • pj

      i believe you are an asshole. im sure god shivers when you say his name.

  • Taylor

    Maybe it’s just me…but this guy looks like he belongs in a specimen jar in the laboratory of a mad scientist. He’s just plain creepy…

    • Rex

      He’s a specimen alright.

    • HKDaniel

      Remember the Boys From Brazil movie in the mid 70’s?
      Josef Mengele was experimenting on locals in Brazil trying to make them appear more Aryan.
      THAT is what he looks like.
      So yes, he’s got the look of a mad scientist experiment all right.

    • RJ Tremor

      I was thinking he has snake eyes(no offense to the snakes).

    • pj

      he should invest in some eyebrows before the debate.

    • FancyThat

      Inevitably, we all eventually fall prey to our own genes. Poor Mr. Duke is morphing more and more into his grandfather’s photos each passing day. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/33f32ea587a368cb34ff995ee837289cae90ce8e89702d38f4e57f49cf2d1cbe.jpg

      • Taylor

        I’m thinking it wasn’t his genes he fell prey to…but that it was some really bad plastic surgery, instead.

    • agcons

      Abby Normal.

  • Rex

    Vicki Zimmerman, the regional news director for Raycom, said she doesn’t expect Duke’s presence to cause security issues. She went on to say they will be sure to maintain a clean line of fire.

  • AW

    Omg… I honestly don’t know how to react to this.

    I’m going to say, just this guy looks like a pod person, like some sort of alien living in a human skin shell. Horrific looking person and horrific personality.

    • Sam_Handwich

      he tweeted this pic this morning

        Is that a sign for guns and ammo in the background?
        Brother better not turn his back, the angel of death is right beside him.

      • AW

        oh… oh god… did he hurt that man?

        • MT YVR

          How do we know she didn’t just moult and shed her outer skin to become this?

      • andrew

        Wow. Duke looks pretty good for 96. Oh, never mind. He’s just 66.

      • Rex

        Did he steal Trump’s African-American?

        • FancyThat

          It appears so. Just before quartering him and serving his brains over some penne pasta with a bitter bolognese sauce.

      • pj

        had his goggles on too tight

      • Guess

        “Hi, Perhaps you’ve heard of me. I’m George Duke!”

      • shellback

        Did he paste on those eyes? He doesn’t even look human.

        • Bomer

          Looks like he stole someone’s face and glued it on to his.

      • FancyThat

        Is there any of the video online showing the part where he pulls off the guy’s arm and then sucks some of his brain out through his ear?

      • FancyThat

        And suddenly, all of those https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7cc7a572e2ee1bb9f00ffa116d86adba7469e4edc8c9481b1589473c6ab72b7b.jpg clowns they keep showing on the evening news (the CLOWN clowns) don’t look so scary!…

  • SunsetGay

    Mr. Duke. Whatever you do, just be sure to continue reminding the audience and the voters of Louisiana that you are Donald Trump’s biggest fan. It’s a huge seller in the state and will no doubt do wonders for Trump’s candidacy.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    I can see the back and forth now,

    John Kennedy: “At this time, I would like to point out that my opponent’s, having been seen in the bar not 20 minutes ago, are currently three sheets to the wind”

    Foster Campbell: “I resent such a remark Sir, I am quite sober, thank you”

    David Duke: “Three sheets to the wind?!? Well, that would explain why I only have one left to wear”

  • Only one word:

    DEPLORABLE.

  • TK

    He’s totally creepy looking. That pale skin and weird blue eyes. Reminds me of Jeremy Irons Morlock. Scary. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/75f6d45792fac8020ce7a124864a388bb77fddde12b6b0552087382239cf50c6.jpg

      But not as pretty

    Proof that there are indeed people “blessed” with the face they deserve.

  • Carl

    Fucking Hell, Louisiana…. take a good look at yourself and do some soul searching.

  • MT YVR

    I can’t help it… whenever his photo comes up the articles disappear. I keep waiting for the inevitable “And now, the reboot of V….” with a little flick of his tongue from that weird expression he always seems to have.

      Follow the demographics, folks. This should not be surprising.

      As if the GOP needed another massive anxiety attack.

    “He said he planned to attend but expressed concerns about security.”

    • Translation: “Fuck! I haven’t done a lick of debate prep, figuring there was no chance I’d get invited! Nuts! How do I make this about something other than me not being ready at all?”

      • Stubenville

        I’m jumping with joy at the idea that he might get heckled continuously every time he opens his mouth… or that the audience will walk out en mass at his first utterance.

  • CJAS

    Dillard is a private, historically black college. So, yeah, it’s “pretty supportive of Black Lives Matter.”

  • Todd20036

    If Louisiana elects him, they deserve him

    • Reality.Bites

      It’s a state with one big ballot with all the dems and reps on it. run off between the top two, whether same party or not.

      He has no chance of making it to the second round.

      • grada3784

        Remember this is a state that elected Diaper Dan.

  • LibreV

    He looks like an animatronic cadaver tasked with bringing dead ideas to life.

  • TheManicMechanic

    Opponents should not let anyone hear anything but Duke being a KKK grand shitwizard every time he tries to speak.

  • greenmanTN

    Casper, the racist ghost
    The racistous ghost you’ll ever see…

    • bmedle

      Seriously. Though I kind of expect that this is what Dump looks like without the $2.99 “I got it on clearance at Walgreens” spray tan.

  • Nowhereman

    He looks like he’s been bleaching his skin.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      He must have thought he wasn’t white enough. So strange.

      • Nowhereman

        Maybe he sent in his DNA to the mormons and found out that he’s got African heritage.

  • bkmn

    Is he going to show up in a white robe and hood?

  • Homo Erectus
    • Ore Carmi

      Is this photo real? Doctors do some amazing things, but I really feel bad for Black doctors having to take care of someone who has clearly just protested against their right to live freely and equally.

      Edit: or just plainly their right to live.

  • RealityBass

    Duke expressed concern about his security and said it was outrageous that a man should feel unsafe because of the color of his skin. He also criticized Black Lives Matter.

    He also failed to see the irony.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Conservative assholes usually do.

  • Ore Carmi

    How on earth does a runoff election end up with more than 2 candidates? Also, thoughts on whether or not this is a good thing? It might help the Democrat get elected, but all politicians from Louisiana tend to be conservative, no? And it gives him visibility, which is always bad.

    • Steve Teeter

      We’re not having the runoff yet. We’re still having the primary, called a jungle primary when it’s this wide open.

      • Ore Carmi

        Ah, thanks.

  • EweTaw

    Ick. Just fucking ick.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Not to be confused with lick.

      • Dan Robinson

        Or prick.

  • BobSF_94117

    “That’s amazing,” Duke said

    translation: Oh, shit. Now I’ve got to prepare!

  • karen in kalifornia.

    Don’t forget that Louisiana does not do a primary for Senate. Therefore, there are 24 names on the ballot for Senate. Crazy. Not sure, but assume if no one gets a majority, top two run off in December election.

  • ColdCountry

    Joe! Are you going to live stream the debate for us?

  • Traxley Launderette
  • agcons

    He looks like a wax mannequin.

  • John T

    It’s 2016, and a KKK leaders is considered a legitimate candidate for US Senator. Louisiana, you really fucked up this time. You’re on my shit list.

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    David Duke has a significant number of supporters in Louisiana who revere him. I’ve lived in a number of southern states, but Louisiana and Mississippi (which I do a lot of work in) are the only two southern states where being in the Klan is NOT considered a bad thing. Mississippi is the worst fucking state in America, but Louisiana is right behind them.

      That and cut rate plastic surgery.

    Thanks, Drumpf.

  • HeyYouKidsGetOffMyLawn

    Whoever reanimated Duke’s corpse really gets my applause. It’s almost lifelike!

    Seriously, he looks like an extra from The Walking Dead. He’s so white he’s turning translucent.

  • Wow. That face is in uncanny valley territory.

  • Halloween_Jack

    He looks like what he really wants is your braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiins
