Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke says he is siding with anti-Israel protesters and those who will “save us from Jewish supremacism” — as social media users ripped pro-Palestine activists for finding common ground with the hate group.

Duke, a self-proclaimed white supremacist and ex-grand wizard of the Knights of the KKK, made his hateful comments during a protest Friday in Detroit that was held after the rightwing America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC) led by white nationalist Nicholas Fuentes was abruptly canceled.

“I support Nick and all his work … and all the people who are working to save our country and save us from Jewish supremacism. We’re being genocided just like the Palestinians,” Duke says in a video shared on X by political commentator and undercover journalist Cam Higby.

When asked in the clip if he is friends with Fuentes, Duke replies, “I consider him a comrade in the fight for our people.”

Videos of Duke’s comments shared on X quickly took off, with many commenting that anti-Israel activists should be concerned they have seemingly found common ground with the KKK.

“If David Duke is on your side, you know you are on the wrong side,” the National Jewish Assembly (NJA) commented under the clip.

One person commented, “This is who college protesters are aligned with” while another quipped, “You know you’re on the right side of history when the former grand wizard of the KKK agrees with you.”

Another X user commented, “An alliance made in hell.”

Duke’s comments came after the AFPAC was abruptly canceled as the group set up the stage Friday.

An official with the Russel Industrial Center, where the event was set to be held, told the Detroit Free Press the venue was tricked by the group, who hired a third-party company to book the center, and that they would never have accepted such an event if they had known what they promote.

“The event was canceled due to fraudulent, knowing misrepresentation of the true nature of the event by the production company for their client, and our concern of safety for our facility, employees, tenants, and the surrounding communities,” a spokesman for the Russell Industrial Center told the newspaper.

“The amount of hate mail we’ve been receiving and terrible things being said towards us by the AFPAC following is disturbing and only affirms our decision as the right one.”
