Duke Expelled From Czech Republic

By David Holthouse on April 28, 2009 - 7:15 am, Posted in Extremist Crime

White supremacist leader David Duke was expelled from the Czech Republic less than 24 hours after Czech Republic police arrested him on charges of denying the Holocaust and promoting neo-Nazi ideology, his lawyer said.

A special operations police squad nabbed Duke last Friday shortly after he arrived in the Czech Republic at the invitation of Czech neo-Nazis. Duke was scheduled to give lectures in Prague and Brno.

A police spokesman told a Czech news agency that no charges would be brought against Duke, a former Klan leader and neo-Nazi. Denying the holocaust and promoting white supremacist ideology are crimes punishable by up to three years in prison in the Czech Republic.

Czech media reported that hundreds of right-wing extremists demonstrated in support of Duke in a northern Czech town last Saturday.

By that time, however, Duke was already out of the country, according to a post to his personal website, in which he denied that he’d traveled to the Czech Republic to deny the Holocaust or to promote neo-Nazism.

“I was going to lecture about the Israeli influence over American and European foreign policy and the International Zionist Banking firms that are leading America and the world to financial oblivion, globalist hegemony and unending war,” he wrote.

Despite the fact that he’s not actually facing criminal charges, Duke issued an urgent fundraising plea for his “legal defense fund.” In 2002, Duke pleaded guilty to felony mail and tax fraud charges for raising money for similar political purposes and using it for home improvement and gambling, among other things. He served 15 months in a federal prison and was fined $10,000.

    He was expelled? Aw dang, I was hoping Duke would spend time in a Midnight Express type jail.

    Hi Jonathan-

    “Are you a hypocrite?”

    Baseless.
    Then again, why should I be? What justifies me being one, may I ask? You very well know where I stand.

    “La Raze is short for NCLR(National Council of La Raza)-im sure you remember that now.”

    Yes, of course. But if its the NCLR you are referring to, then why on Earth-do you play robot by reiterating what a typical low IQ’ed natavist usually spat by just screaming “La Raza” without merit in which ones you’re referring to???(NCLR or “La Raza” the street gang which btw isn’t very popular, organized nor powerful as opposed to the Mexican Mafia so why worry about “La Raza”?)

    Also, as far as I’m concerned, the NCLR isn’t a “racist” org as claimed by racist white supremacists. If you think they are can you cite your source or an example? Can you locate anything on their website that leads me to believe you? I checked their site and saw nothing on their that resembles the frivolous notion that they “hate whites”.

    “MECha are “brownies” they want to take power away from whites”.

    Why do you think they want to take power away from “whities”? Or could it be that you’re paranoid like a common xenophobe?

    “Duke doesn’t deny the holocaust. I haven’t seen any mention of “conspiracies.”

    Did you not read his comment in the previous post regarding the Jews and Zionists? Maybe you’re in extreme denial? Or maybe you don’t fully understand what “conspiracy theory” means?

    “Your memory is correct. I admire the Isrealis.”

    Then you just admit that you’re pro-Isreal/pro-Zionist. That’s not gonna fit well in your defense of David Duke and white supremacy. Which is why I asked if you are a hypocrite. You might be lost and confused, though.

    “I feel Jews deserve their own homeland.”

    Don’t the Palestanians deserve their homeland in the West Bank? And the right to live without being annihilated?

    “That doesn’t mean that I think they are always angels.”

    Who thinks they are “angels”? Aren’t we all human beings?

    “I don’t really care.”

    Are you implying that you no longer care about youself as a white supremacist? Are you thinking about converting to the Jewish faith? Well good luck, maybe you can work for the ADL and help fight neo-Nazism and white supremacy.

    “I do think he spends too much time worrying about Jews “Supremacists”[sic] and Isreal.”

    That would make him anti-semitic.

    Dear GENO,

    “Are you asking for my opinion? Well, in plain English, my answer is–no.”

    Are YOU a hypocrite?

    “Unlike your white supremacist hero-David Duke. We don’t see “La Raza”(whatever the hell that is, its just a lowlife street gang comprised of juvenile deliquents, you must be really retarded to begin with) …”

    “La Raza” is short for the NCLR (National Council of La Raza) – I’m sure you remember that now.

    ” … or ‘MECha’ traveling throughout Europe giving speeches associated with white power, …”

    MECha are “brownies”, they want to take power away from Whites.

    ” …holocaust denying, or conspiracy theories about how the Jews and Zionists are taking over the world banking system to plot globalism destruction.”
    Duke doesn’t deny the Holocaust. I haven’t seen any mention of “conspiracies”.

    “If memory serves me correctly, in the previous post months ago, you stated how you admire the Zionist in Isreal [Israel], because of some of their policies they have enacted. ”

    Your memory is correct. I admire the Israelis. I feel Jews deserve their own homeland. That doesn’t mean I think that they are always angels.

    “That’s not gonna make you very popular with your white supremacists friends.”

    I don’t really care.

    “Not only that, but your favoritsm of “Zionists” in Isreal [Israel] contasts gravely from that of David Duke’s perceptions. Or….”

    Duke makes some good points. I do think he spends too much time worrying about Jews “Supremacists” and Israel. I’m glad to see he finally mentioned problems with Islamic extremists.

    “Are YOU a hypocrite?”

    No.

    Regardless, the one exception unmentioned is the individual laws of each sovereign nation. Duke didn’t do his research and paid the price for his arrogance. The Czechs paid a bloody price under Nazi rule and have a long memory like several other nations.

    Duke is fortunate he still has a passport. He needs to go to a more favorable country…perhaps North Korea…where he can lecture to his heart’s content and very few would understand.

  • Larry

    *Chuckles bitterly* Bummer- it’d have been nice to see Duke do some “overseas time”- kinda fill out his resume right? =D

    If they’ed convicted him on the orginal charges- 3 years worth- it would have maybe opened his mind. Of course the danger with that would be another “Mien Koft” or similar writings of Pol Pot.

    So, what DID Duke do with the 12 million dollars he got from running for President, anyway? Anyone remember?

  • GENO

    Jonathan-

    ‘Would you like countries to also ban people from groups like “La Raza”, “MECha” and Zionist organizations?”

    Are you asking for my opinion? Well, in plain English, my answer is–no.

    Why?

    Unlike your white supremacist hero-David Duke. We don’t see “La Raza”(whatever the hell that is, its just a lowlife street gang comprised of juvenile deliquents, you must be really retarded to begin with) or “MECha” traveling throughout Europe giving speeches associated with white power, holocaust denying, or conspiracy theories about how the Jews and Zionists are taking over the world banking system to plot globalism destruction.

    If memory serves me correctly, in the previous post months ago, you stated how you admire the Zionist in Isreal, because of some of their policies they have enacted. That’s not gonna make you very popular with your white supremacists friends. Not only that, but your favoritsm of “Zionists” in Isreal contasts gravely from that of David Duke’s perceptions. Or….

    Are YOU a hypocrite?

  • Jonathan

    GENO,

    “What I really like to see, is that more ‘European’ countries follow the Czech’s lead in banishing …”

    Would you like countries to also ban people of groups like “La Raza”, MECha, and Zionist organizations?

  • Jonathan

    Dear Carter and others,

    I looked at what Mr. Duke was planning to say in the Czech Republic – he didn’t mention White women.

    He didn’t blame or accuse the average Jew of anything; he did warn about the danger of “Zionist extremists”.

    I saw no signs of “denying the Holocaust”, “promoting neo-Nazi ideology” or “promoting white supremacist ideology” (what on earth is “promoting white supremacist ideology” anyway?).

    The Czech police probably had no idea what he was going to say before they arrested him. Once again as I said, he was arrested and expelled for perceived political incorrectness.

  • Carter

    “Do any of you here actually already know what he was planning to say at his speech?”

    Just what was posted by Duke himself.

    The warning of the super-duper Jewish international banking conspiracy with tentacles to the media moguls corrupting the “White European” culture.

    And when time allots…. someone would interject the subject we always hear so much about…..
    ….Ohh yes, they want white women. ALL space aliens, people of colour, everyone wants white women….Can’t forget that one. Even KING KONG wanted a white woman!
    I must be really missing out on something. :(
    What’s the deal with that? White women….everyone’s always after them. White men get quite sideways on this issue – so I really don’t mean to offend anyone, but I really want to guarantee some of you who have this fear that everyone of colour is NOT trying to go out with your girl.

    Now I know there is a Jewish Optometrist in town. If I had the time to follow him do you think he would lead me to the secret meeting of all the Jews where they get together and decide on how to control the world?

    Sorry, but if all this crap didn’t hurt people – it would be laughable!

  • GENO

    What I really like to see, is that more “European” countries follow the Czech’s lead in banishing foriegn neo-Nazis white supremacists from entering their countries, to promote hate and a KKKriminal idealogy commonly associated with the WN, neo-Nazism. Russia may be the last “civilization” to allow demagogues like Duke to spat such rhetoric in their country. But Russa isn’t a part of the “European” union, nevertheless.

  • Jonathan

    OK, all’s clear: Mr. Duke was thrown out of the Czech Republic for being politically incorrect.

    Do any of you here actually already know what he was planning to say at his speech?

  • Carter

    Well folks, it shows you what a face-lift can do for a Klansman!

    – And if that was not abject lesson alone, hearing him called “Doctor Duke” is about as appropriate as hearing fawning listeners blather on to “Dr. Savage”…. Wow, no wonder typical TV commercials are made for a 12 yr old mental age!

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    It is kind of odd that a convicted felon still has a passport.

    What I’m most bothered by here is not so much that David Duke is already a known criminal but that he still maintains followers and seems to have this White Supremacy ideology that people view as a religion. How could the ultimate message of hate truly be “faith” based? And then to spread that message abroad?

  • GENO

    He did it before-

    “Bilk money from his true believers.”

    And like the article stated above was just one example. Hence, there were other incidents not listed, so I assumed you will have to look those up, if one wanted to get another insight into his “bilking” habits of scaming his most inepitest white supremacist fans/followers.
    And the funny part is-
    Those same white supremacists still continue to follow and believe in whatever hogwashes is thrown at them. Duke isn’t sincere in what he says, he’s merely there to convince the easily influenced white supremacists to open up their retarded wallets so he can continue on with his “habits”.

  • Carter

    Interesting stuff….Now we know the truth, that the Czech Republic did NOT imprison Duke for anything he said but instead just whisked the the place clean. So what’s with the legal defense fund? Could a man like David Duke be attempting to bilk money from his group of true believers?
