David Duke Adapts Anti-Semitic Meme to Target Blacks

You may have read that a black church in Mississippi was burned and spray-painted with “Vote Trump.” NPR:

The FBI has opened a civil rights investigation into the vandalizing and burning of a black church in Mississippi. “Vote Trump” had been spray-painted on a wall.

As Jim Jamitis noted earlier today, this could either be a genuine hate crime or a hoax. And, of course, there is nothing inherently racist about noting the possibility of a hoax here. Especially on campuses, alleged anti-black hate crimes turn out to be hoaxes often enough that it would be irresponsible not to consider the possibility.

But . . .

But former KKK Grand Wizard and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate David Duke has a funny way of expressing this concern. Duke tweeted out a picture of the church in question with the following comment:

Just WTF is that supposed to mean? Not being conversant with racist and anti-Semitic memes, I had to get someone to explain it to me on Twitter. Fortunately, Ashley Parker on Twitter set me straight:

And here is the cartoon:

hey rabbi, whatcha doing?

Charming, isn’t it? The hooked nose is especially telling. Duke has the meme down cold, right down to the spelling of “watcha.”

I’m so pleased Donald Trump refused to condemn David Duke and then lied about why.

Ain’t it great what Donald Trump has helped embolden in this country? Aren’t we just all so gosh-darned PROUD?

I know, I know. I’m just “virtue-signaling” here. That’s what the Trumpers call any criticism of bad behavior, right?
