Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has endorsed Charles Barron for Congress in Brooklyn's 8th C.D.
"I certainly agree with Barron that Israel is the worst rogue terrorist state on Earth," Duke said in an 8-minute video posted on YouTube.
"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," Duke said.
Barron's opponent in the race to succeed retiring Rep. Ed Towns is Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries.
Barron has repeatedly refused during the campaign to discuss his previously voiced anti-Israel positions — he called Israel the "biggest terrorist in the world." On Thursday, he would not address Duke's positions, or Duke's endorsement.
"I'm insisting that you deal with the intelligent, critical issues of our campaign," Duke was quoted in the New York Post.
"Our people are suffering from poverty, foreclosure, skyrocketing unemployment. We're talking about wars abroad where people are dying and money's being wasted. We're dealing with serious issues. I'm not responding to stupidity."
Duke is a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and a former state representative in Louisiana.
