Donald Trump’s immigration speech on Wednesday night was described here as “fascism in it’s purest, most vile form, slathered in an unbroken stream of lies,” while most in the media tip-toed around, trying to explain it all away. So, who was praising the speech?

There was the former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan:

David Duke ‏@DrDavidDuke

Excellent speech by Donald Trump tonight. Deport criminal aliens, end catch and release, enforce immigration laws & America First.

A noted white supremacist and the founder of American Renaissance:

#TrumpAZ Hell of a speech. Almost perfect. Logical, deeply felt, and powerfully delivered. Now watch how the media twists it.

The editors of the white supremacist website VDARE:

In a sane country, everything Trump has proposed tonight so far would be regarded as so obviously true it wouldn’t even be up for debate.

And of course:

I think I’ll watch this speech every night before going to bed so that I will sleep like a baby.

So, who was right? Those identifying the speech as fascist hate-mongering, or those excusing it as just another Trump appeal to his base? You make the call.
