The Southern Poverty Law Center notes Duke is "most recognizable figure of the American radical right, a neo-Nazi, longtime Klan leader and now international spokesman for Holocaust denial."
Duke is currently online defending Scalise against what he terms "Vile, Anti-White Media Hatred"on Duke's website.
