The Circular Theory of “Political Crazy” Strikes Again
Those who know me and get me talking about political theory will find that I don’t believe in the standard “Football Field” theory of politics.
That theory is pretty simple. Image politics as a football field. Most moderates and apolitical people are at the 50-yard line. Each side’s respective bases are then at the 35-yard line and with those “really out there” are supposed to be near the goal lines.
My theory is that politics is not linear. It’s circular.
At the southern pole are the “normal, moderate, apolitical” people. At the eastern and western poles are the liberal and conservative bases and at the northern is just the area I like to call “Bat $#!+ Crazy.” At the “Bat $#!+ Crazy” area of the circle, you find all the cranks, conspiracy theorists, and lord only knows what…all of whom seem to subscribe to the idea that the Jews control the world, that racial politics matter reign supreme and so on.
Here’s where you’ll find folks like Jesse Jackson, Pat Buchanan, the New Black Panther Party, the John Birch Society, and on and on.
Let’s add two more to their ranks: David Duke, and this Harlem Democrat.
Former KKK Grand Wizard and member of the Louisiana Legislature David Duke released a video yesterday endorsing Charles Barron in his race for Brooklyn’s 8th Congressional district against Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries. Mr. Barron, a member of the City Council and former member of the Black Panther Party who, over the years, has made a series of controversial statements against Israel and in support of African dictators Muammar Qaddafi. He would seem to be an odd choice for a self-described “white nationalist” like Mr. Duke, but in the video, Mr. Duke explains that he thinks Mr. Jeffries has “sold his soul to the international Zio-bankers” while Mr. Barron’s strong past criticisms of Israel outweigh their other differences.
“In a race for Congress between an anti-Zionist black activist and a black activist who is a bought and paid for Zionist Uncle Tom, I’ll take the anti-Zionist any day,” Mr. Duke says in the video. “In this election of limited choices, I believe that Charles Barron is the best choice. Why? Because I think there’s no greater danger facing the United States of America and facing the world than the unbridled power of Zionist globalism. … Charles Barron stands against that power. If I lived in New York City, I would certainly vote for Charles Barron.”
Mr. Duke begins his video by noting that Mr. Barron has been labeled the “David Duke of New York City” by his political opponents.
I should really submit my theory to someone like Charles Franklin. You know, for a peer review or something like that.
