Trump Campaign Gives Press Credentials to Pro-Slavery White Nationalist

Trump has made a mess of his embrace of and then disavowals to white nationalists, but his actions speak louder than words. White nationalist secessionist radio host James Edwards of The Political Cesspool, a self-identified “pro-white” program, and author of Racism Schmacism: How Liberals Use the “R” World to Push the Obama Agenda, received media credentials from the Trump campaign.

Edwards supports holocaust deniers and even people like David Duke, the guy Trump just lied about not knowing and then blaming his ear piece before finally – and unconvincingly disavowing.

David Duke, by the way, says Trump will save us from “Zionists and the Jewish tribal extremists.” If that isn’t appalling enough, Media Matters for America explains that Edwards says “Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream is our nightmare,” “interracial sex is white genocide,” and “slavery is the greatest thing that ever happened to” African-Americans.

According to Edwards on his blog Tuesday, he “attended a Donald Trump rally in Memphis on Saturday night as a fully credentialed member of the media and enjoyed the unique experience of being able to air a live broadcast of The Political Cesspool Radio Program from inside the press pen while the event was in full swing.”

You might say, “fine, he’s media, Trump welcomes all media to his events.” But you’d be wrong. As Media Matters for America pointed out,

The Trump Campaign Gave Press Credentials To The White Nationalist Political Cesspool But Denied Passes To Legitimate Outlets.

Trump has shown he is perfectly capable to blocking media credentials when he wishes to do so. The only possible conclusion is that Trump wanted Edwards at his event.

For Edwards, the advent of Trump is a religious experience, and he even categorized the event as “inspirational”:

I must admit that this rally lived up to my expectations. I’ve been saying for years on the radio that the majority of Americans fundamentally agree with us on the issues and that the neocons were generals of a phantom army. I am being proven right. Our people just needed a viable candidate and they’ve identified Trump as that man. There is no doubt that Trump’s populism and nationalism is galvanizing our nation and may change the course of American history for the better right before our very eyes.
 
After getting my start in politics with Pat Buchanan in 2000, Donald Trump will be the first Republican nominee that I have ever voted for. Buchanan was a man ahead of the times and Trump is his vindicator. With family men like myself, it can be argued that Trump is now growing the party because there isn’t a chance that I would have ever considered voting for any of the other cuckservatives that made bids for the White House under the GOP banner this year. I also predict he’ll do better with minorities than either Mitt Romney and John McCain, as results in states live Nevada have already suggested.
 
A fellow traveler remarked to me in private that the ingredient in Trump’s historic rise that makes it so delicious is that it’s nuclear powered. It is unstoppable. It is impervious to foot-shuffling, complaints, whining, hysterical cries of “racism” and so-called “white supremacism.” Trump supporters don’t care and there is something undeniably infectious about Trump’s masculine attitude. He is a prototypical alpha male.
 
We don’t have to agree with everything Trump says and he doesn’t need to agree with everything we say. I firmly believe that everything for which I stand is both natural and healthy, but it wouldn’t bother me if Donald Trump himself denounced me and all of my friends. He can denounce me until the cows come home so long as he follows through on his pledge to build a wall and ensures that the aliens self deport. I am supporting him because immigration is the single biggest problem that our nation needs to solve. Demographics is destiny. He doesn’t need to support me.
 
The bottom line is that Trump is the only candidate who gives us a chance at having a fighter who will put America first. He’s the only candidate who isn’t owned and operated by special interests. With Trump, America has a chance to regain her identity.
 
A new day is dawning and it’s a beautiful sight to behold.

We are promised that “Next Saturday’s show [March 5] will feature a previously taped 20-minute interview with Donald Trump, Jr.”

Edwards’ site explains that “The Political Cesspool Radio Program stands for the The Dispossessed Majority. We represent a philosophy that is pro-White and are against political centralization” that is “Pro-Christian (God), Pro-White (Family), Pro-South (Republic).”

Because the Semitic God of the Old Testament and the Semitic Messiah of the New, apparently hates black people and wants the South to be free of the Federal government.

Trump claims he has a good relationship “with the blacks” and that blacks like him “better than Obama.” But all the denials in the world don’t speak as loud as Trump’s appalling words and deeds (including the removal of black students from his Georgia rally Monday), and by credentialing white nationalist James Edwards of The Political Cesspool he has shown where his true loyalties lie.
