It seems Donald Trump constantly re-tweeting white nationalists on Twitter has paid off. A group of white supremacists has formed a Super PAC and they are supporting Trump. Isn’t that lovely?

From CNN:

New Hampshire voters may be stunned to hear the latest robocall asking for their vote; it’s from white nationalists with a simple, disturbing message.

“We don’t need Muslims. We need smart, educated, white people,” according to the male voice on the calls, which began Thursday night and urge voters in New Hampshire to vote for Donald Trump.

Three white nationalist leaders have banded together to form their own super PAC in support of Trump, even though Trump doesn’t want their support.

The American National Super PAC is funding the robocall effort, which is organized under a separate group called the American Freedom Party.

On its website, the American Freedom Party says it “shares the customs and heritage of the European American people.”

Taylor said he prefers to be called a “white advocate” rather than a white nationalist or white supremacist.

“Most white people would prefer to live in majority white neighborhoods and send their children to majority white schools, and deep in their bones, they are deeply disturbed by an immigration policy that is making the United States majority non-white,” said Taylor. “So when Donald Trump talks about sending out all the illegals, building a wall and a moratorium on Islamic immigration, that’s very appealing to a lot of ordinary white people.”

Taylor added, “They will say that I support Donald Trump because he’s going to send away all illegal immigrants and build a wall and that he wants to put a moratorium on Islamic immigration, and I will say that what this means is that he wants immigrants who will assimilate to our Western values. And I’m all for that, and I think all of the people in New Hampshire are all for that, too.”

Trump’s dismissal of the Super PAC was tepid at best:

Contacted by CNN, the Trump campaign would not speak specifically about Taylor, his group, the robocalls, or the group’s white nationalist ideas.

“Mr. Trump has disavowed all Super PACs offering their support and continues to do so,” said Hope Hicks, a Trump campaign spokeswoman.

Yes but this is not just any Super PAC. It seems odd that Donald Trump wouldn’t rebuke them. Or is it?

Trump is not stupid. He knows much of his social media activity is aimed at rubes who sit there and cheer it on all the live long day, no matter how outrageous. Think they’re not aware he’s re-tweeting white nationalist accounts? They’re know. They just don’t care.
