White supremacist groups see Trump bump : 'He has sparked an insurgency,' Stormfront founder says. (BEN SCHRECKINGER, 12/10/15, Politico)

The Ku Klux Klan is using Donald Trump as a talking point in its outreach efforts. Stormfront, the most prominent American white supremacist website, is upgrading its servers in part to cope with a Trump traffic spike. And former Louisiana Rep. David Duke reports that the businessman has given more Americans cover to speak out loud about white nationalism than at any time since his own political campaigns in the 1990s.

As hate group monitors at the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League warn that Trump's rhetoric is conducive to anti-Muslim violence, white nationalist leaders are capitalizing on his candidacy to invigorate and expand their movement.

"Demoralization has been the biggest enemy and Trump is changing all that," said Stormfront founder Don Black, who reports additional listeners and call volume to his phone-in radio show, in addition to the site's traffic bump. Black predicts that the white nationalist forces set in motion by Trump will be a legacy that outlives the businessman's political career. "He's certainly creating a movement that will continue independently of him even if he does fold at some point."

You are what you believe. One would hope he's just sayin g this stuff because it's fun and that he's not really this evil.
