Are the leaders of the infamous “Unite the Right” rally held in Charlottesville, VA on August 12 “white supremacists” or something else? Heather Heyer was brutally killed and many others wounded when a car being driven by James Alex Fields, Jr., a Hitler-loving 20-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic plowed into a group of communist agitators and Antifa activists.
Whether they are provocateurs, infiltrators or nazis, one thing is for sure – the leaders of the Unite the Right rally do not preach, practice or even remotely represent conservatism.
But the Unite the Right leaders researched by this author do share several common traits: They are anti-Semitic, deeply pro-Russian, and have an anti-free market ideology.
David Duke is not exactly a conservative icon. He is anti-Semitic and would be more ideologically compatible with the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement than with the pro-Israel Tea Party. In fact, David Duke praised the Occupy Wall Street movement, particularly the anti-Semitic strain therein, including head OWS organizer Adbusters editor Kalle Lasn.
Like the others profiled here, David Duke has a deep appreciation for Russia, and even lived there for a period:
I lived in Russia for five years. While there, my book Jewish Supremacism was a best seller and sold in the Duma book store. https://t.co/loug9EdnSy

Here, David Duke is pictured with Aleksandr Dugin, Russian philosopher and political figure working to combine Islam, Fascism and Communism into an anti-West alliance. Dugin was dubbed “Putin’s Rasputin” by Breitbart News.

A revealing quote from Aleksandr Dugin’s 1997 work “The Foundation of Geopolitics:”
“It is especially important to introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics…”
