MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A popular Minneapolis nightclub — that closed after it was revealed the owner donated to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke — has now reopened.

In September of 2017, much of Club Jager’s staff quit after a report that owner Julius De Roma contributed to Duke’s failed bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana. The exodus of employees led to the bar being closed.

De Roma told WCCO-TV his donation was “basically free speech” and that the controversy had been blown up beyond what it should be.

On Wednesday, the bar had a “soft reopening”, saying the bar is going back to “its original roots, with soft background music, intelligent conversation, no stupid collectivist games, and no disco! Individualists are welcome!”

DeRoma continues to be the owner of the bar.

  1. Dr David Duke ran for President in the DNC after being in the KKK for just a few years. Senator Roberty Byrd was in the KKK for decades, and you can use transcripts from Congress to prove he was a relevant KKK leader, not just someone who appeared on Phil Donahue’s show a few times.

  2. @TunderBoomers If you were to argue that Robert Byrd shouldn’t have been elected in 1952 due to his enthusiastic, but brief, involvement with the KKK you’d get no argument from he. Claiming he was in “for decades” is B.S. However, given his later support for the Civil Rights Movement and apology for his Klan involvement, he’s clearly not in the same league as David Duke (or Jason De Roma).

    1. Maybe you should look up how Senator “Old white sheets” Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights act for 14 hours in 1964.

      .Senator Byrds voting records and transcripts are in the library of congress and part of the Democrats vast KKK paper trail.
