Are “new” Republicans neo-Nazis?

The new house majority whip, Steve Scalise, seems to be the perfect poster child for the “new” Republican: anti-tax, anti-government (except for the part where one draws a fat paycheck for fooling the voters every two years), and racist.  How do we know he’s all these things?  Because we know he was a principal speaker  at the EURO (an organization founded by known neo-Nazi, David Duke).

 

The Hon. Mr. Scalise now claims: [EURO was] “One of the many groups that I spoke to regarding this critical legislation was a group whose views I wholeheartedly condemn. It was a mistake I regret, and I emphatically oppose the divisive racial and religious views groups like these hold. I am very disappointed that anyone would try to infer otherwise for political gain.”  But how can he not have known?  Was he a politician with only one speech which he delivers to all comers?  Did he not tailor his speech to his audience?  Apparently what he said impressed the members of EURO so much that one of the leaders of the organization gave him a ringing endorsement as a future member of congress.

 

Even David Duke is skeptical that Scalise did not know the nature of EURO.  Duke said, “It would seem to me that he would have realized that it was our group,” he said. “Because he knew Kenny (Duke’s former campaign manager).   I mean, he knew me. But I can’t swear to it…”

 

I think there is more than a little evidence to justify the inference (granted it’s not proof)that Scalise does hold those divisive racial and religious views, and given his recent rise to a position of power in the majority party in the House might we also infer that the “new” Republican Party is now a party of neo-Nazis?
