REPORT: DOX REVEAL TRUMP WHITE HOUSE CONCERN OVER KRIS KOBACH 'WHITE SUPREMACY' BAGGAGE!!!



First and foremost, we've met Kris Kobach a few times and OVER & OVER he has renounced racism and explained his advocacy which prioritizes protecting the nation's borders and enforcing immigration law above all else.

Nevertheless, it's fair to report that the question of alleged White Supremacy has plagued the politico throughout his career. In fact, the horrific branding and his lack of skill in shaking the image has undoubtedly stunted his progress and confined him to flyover country AM radio fame with little power or credibility inside the Beltway other than a few token Fox News appearances.

Check the latest example that was politely ignored by the local MSM over the past couple of weeks:

According to the vetting docs, “white supremacy” was a significant “red flag” for Kobach. “Past political opponents have accused Kobach of allying himself with groups that had connections to white supremacist groups,” the documents read. This probably refers to reports that Kobach accepted funding from white supremacist groups during his election in 2004.

But there have been even more reports of Kobach’s ties to white supremacy in the years since these transition vetting docs were compiled following the 2016 election. Last year, he was accused of employing three white nationalists on his gubernatorial campaign, and financial disclosures revealed he was still accepting thousands of dollars from white nationalists. His support for strict voter ID laws that disenfranchise racial minority voters and rabidly xenophobic views of immigration are not inconsistent with such views.

Maybe Kobach can "rebrand" himself as a security guard, which will be his next job on that little wall he built.

be honest, real Kobach supporters don't care if he's racist or not. In fact, most of them seem to prefer his style and there's really not reason for him to change.

That's America for you. Patriotism is now considered racism.

You haven't been within 500 yards of Kris Kobach and you know it; stop lying so much. He wouldn't give a schlubs like you the time of day.

^^^^ Dipshit, his campaign sent TKC press releases all through the campaign that he should not have posted. Not really that big of a deal given that Kobach gives HUNDREDS of interviews. A ton of bloggers have interviewed him. Sorry gramps, please try again. Or just go water your trailer.

I interviewed him once in the late 90s outside of an elevator for my student newspaper during a college talk he was giving.

Met him again as part of a group of students he met with at UMKC law when he taught there - The student group was trying to get him fired; he was actually really patient with them and his law students - Most of whom described him as a very talented professor.

And I got to ask him one question during a rally he was holding in Overland Park about 7 years ago. Radio host Darla Jaye snuck me into her booth for about 5 minutes because the "event" was REALLY boring and just a fundraising exercise

I didn't write that we were best friends, just that I've met and talked with him a few times over the span of his 20+ year career, like most newsies have around the KC metro. I doubt he knows anything about TKC. Like one of the commenters above noted, he gives A LOT of interviews.

By Rights @10:09 you wrote that backwards - racism is now called "patriotism', far too often.

You Trumpsters need to realize that there are a lot of Veterans out here who once took an oath to defend this Country "against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC".

You, your "Beloved Leader, his followers like McConnell and Graham, and others need to realize that your constant attempts to overthrow the Constitution are starting to irritate the "Silent Steel" out here in the Real World. Some of us haven't that we fought and bled for what makes America strong.

What is wrong with white supremacy? I think it’s admirable in a politician.

He has some great qualities, but his faults outweigh the good he's done.

Racism is the new Trump patriotism.

And yet Kobach is still one of our brightest politicians. Weird.

I will not decide about Kobach until I find out what Colin Kaepernick thinks about him. Colin is the bellwether of our times.

I also want Colin to weigh in on whether "Mexican" is really a separate race. And if so, are Salvadoran, Guatemalan and Nicaraguan separate races too? Colin knows all.
