If you thought you've seen odd couples, wait until you read this story.
New York City Councilman Charles Barron, who many view as a fire-starting pro-black politician, has received an endorsement from former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke.
The endorsement came today in a video in which Duke spewed anti-Semitic bile while praising Barron.
"The possible election of [Barron], a dedicated anti-Zionist to the U.S. Congress, has thrown the Zionist-influenced media and the Zio-political establishment in a tizzy," said Duke, who made an infamous bid for the White House in 1992.
He said he may not agree with everything about Barron, but that doesn't mean he can't support him.
Barron refused to discuss Duke's blessing.
“We're staying focused - and we demand respect for our campaign," Barron said Thursday. "I don't think that's a campaign issue. I don't think it's intelligent."
Barron is locked in a tight race with state Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries for the Democratic nomination to succeed outgoing Rep. Ed Towns.
