Revealed: Anaheim Klansman is jobless, part Jewish and lives with mom in ritzy San Francisco home

Published

on

A member of the Ku Klux Klan who stabbed three counter-protesters in Anaheim, California, over the weekend lives in a ritzy home with his mother in San Francisco, according to SF Weekly.

It appears he also has Jewish ancestry.

Charles Edward Donner, 51, resides in the Marina District in San Francisco, “where he lives with his mother in an extremely expensive house across the street from the Palace of Fine Arts,” SF Weekly reported. The 3,500-square foot home sold for $1.2 million in 1988.

Donner, who changed his name in the mid-1980s, is the son of Charles D’Honau. Donner’s father graduated from Princeton University and was a former publisher of TIME magazine in Japan. He died in the 1990s, leaving his son and his wife in their current home, SF Weekly reported.

Anaheim police spokesman Sgt. Daron Wyatt said Donner claimed he was unemployed while he was detained.

Though the Ku Klux Klan includes Jews among the ethnic groups it hates, Donners’ family appears to have Jewish ties. His paternal grandfather, William D’Honau, was the son of German immigrants and his “native tongue” was listed in the 1920 United States Federal Census as “Yiddish,” according to El Tecolote.

“All I can say is he’s very mentally ill,” Donner’s brother, Bill D’Honau, told the newspaper.

Donner, an Exalted Cyclops of the Loyal White Knights, was taken into custody on Sunday after a brawl broke out between members of the Ku Klux Klan and counter-protesters at a KKK rally. Police arrested Donner on suspicion of stabbing three people, but he was later released after police said video showed he acted in self-defense.

GOP operatives linked to Kayne West’s presidential bid in potential ‘spoiler’ effort: NYT

Published

There are questions as to whether Kanye West is running a "spoiler" bid for president to help re-elect his friend, Donald Trump, according to a new report by The New York Times.

"At least four people who have been active in Republican politics are linked to Kanye West’s attempt to get on the presidential ballot this year. The connection raises questions about the aims of the entertainer’s effort and whether it is regarded within the G.O.P. as a spoiler campaign that could aid President Trump, even as those close to Mr. West have expressed concerns about his mental health as he enters the political arena," the newspaper reported.
