Did David Duke Comment on Donklephant?
(UPDATE: It’s the real guy. See below original post for his email response.)
In Sean’s great post about restricting free speech, the lone commenter says this…
The report in which I said that gas chambers did not exist, was the result of a summary of news articles about me and was NOT, I repeat, NOT what I said in my speech or in the conference. Furthermore. I have never stated flatly that gas chambers did not exist. That is fact, not a lie. You can hear my remarks and read the full text at my website.
You are right freedom of speech is vital, if not the readers of this site would not even know that I have a response, a provable response to the charge that I was quote, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œa lying loon.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚?
The commenter claims to be the David Duke, and after a little followup to davidduke.com, the email that was left for verification is the one Duke has on his website, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve sent an email to the address for a followup, and I’ll update here when I get a response.
The blogosphere is a weird little world indeed…
Yes, it’s apparently the real guy.
Here’s his response to my query if his comment was real…
