Slate has put up an interview with William Johnson, a white nationalist who runs American National Super PAC to support Trump. Now here's a guy who plays the racial identity card, pedal to the metal. Nothing subtle about his approach at all, just puts it out there. He takes Trump's dog-whistles, amps them up and has been making robocalls into states whose primaries are tomorrow, Super Tuesday. He throws in a "Don't vote for a Cuban, vote for Donald Trump" at the end of the calls. Just in case anyone still thought these GOP contests still involved anyone past Trump, Cruz and Rubio... Excerpt from the article's introduction: “The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called racist,” Johnson said on the calls. “This is our mindset … It’s OK to give away our country for immigration, but don’t call me a racist. It’s OK that few schools anymore have beautiful white children as a majority, but don’t call me racist.” Others fear the taint of racism, Johnson said, but Trump does not. “Don’t vote for a Cuban, vote for Donald Trump,” his message concluded. He gave a phone number that listeners could call for more information. Johnson is the chairman of the white supremacist American Freedom Party; according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, it was founded by a group of racist California skinheads in 2009. He has called for the deportation of Americans with any “ascertainable trace of Negro blood” or more than one-eighth “Mongolian, Asian, Asia Minor, Middle Eastern, Semitic, Near Eastern, American Indian, Malay or other non-European or non-white blood.” When he is not working toward creating what he calls “separate white ethno-states,” Johnson farms and practices corporate law in Southern California.' I thought this exchange in the interview was particularly interesting: Q. Do you worry that your calls could end up damaging Trump in places where your message isn’t popular? A. No, I don’t think it will hurt the candidate. Donald Trump is really a Teflon candidate, like Reagan was. I need to point out to you that white nationalists are not conservatives. We are populists, along the lines of Huey Long. And the conservatives are really jumping on Donald Trump because he is a populist. So there is a large segment of the voting population that rejects the mean-spirited conservative views that have been the foundation of the Republican Party for a very long time. Populism is replacing conservatism among a large segment of the voting population. And along with that, racial consciousness is also prevalent now, so that’s why we are growing. We are nationalists and we are populists, and that’s exactly what Donald Trump is. The interviewer asked if Trump or his staff had provided any feedback, and suggested that if they didn't like what Johnson was doing, they could tell him to cut it out. Johnson said they hadn't, wouldn't and that there had been "no communication whatsoever." Yeah? Well in my opinion, a lack of feedback can be a kind of a dog whistle itself.
