Infiltrate hate. (taglines)
- With the right white man, we can do anything.
- All power to all people.
- If I am not for myself, who will be? If I am for myself alone, who am I? If not now, when? And if not you, who? (see also Pirkei Avot 1:14)
- Dr. Kennebrew Beauregard: Hello, my fellow Americans. They say we may have lost the battle but we didn't lose the war. Yes, my friends, we are under attack. You may have read about this in your local newspapers or seen it on the evening news. That's right. We are living in an era marked by the spread of integration and miscegenation. The Brown decision. The Brown decision, forced upon us by the Jewish-controlled puppets on the U.S. Supreme Court, compelling white children to go to school with an inferior race, is the final nail in a coffin, is the final nail in a black coffin towards America becoming a mongrel nation. We had a great way of life. We had a great way of life. We had a great way of life. We had a great way of life until the Martin Luther Coons of this world and their army of Commies started their civil rights assault against our holy white Protestant values. Do you really want your precious white child going to school with Negroes? They're lying, dirty monkeys, stopping at nothing to gain their equality with white men. Rapists, murderers, craving the virgin white, is it "virgin pure"? Rapists, murderers, craving the virgin pure flesh of white women. They are super predators! And the Negro's insidious tactics, under the tutelage of high-ranking, blood-sucking Jews, using an army of outside northern black beast preda... agitators. God, watch this! God! Using an army of outside northern black beast agitators determined to overthrow the God-commanded and biblically inspired rule of the white race. It's an international Jewish conspiracy. May God bless us all.
- Sergeant Trapp: You know the way to sell hate? Affirmative action, immigration, crime, tax reform... He [David Duke] says, no one wants to be called a bigot anymore because Archie Bunker made that too uncool. So, the idea is under all these issues... everyday Americans can accept it. Support it. Until eventually, one day he gets somebody in the White House that embodies it.
- David Duke: America first.
- Klansmen: America first. America first.
- Waiter: Ain't this a bitch. If I would have known this was a Klan meeting, I wouldn't have taken this motherfucking gig. Goddamn.
- Ron Stallworth: [asking Flip to help take a photo of him with David and another Klansman] Can you take this picture of us, please?
- Flip Zimmerman: All right, don't touch me.
- Ron Stallworth: Great. All right, all right, thank you so much. Thank you. Here we go. One, two, three!
- [just before Flip takes the picture, Ron puts his arms around Duke and the other Klansman]
- David Duke: Jesus H. Christ! What did you just do, boy? I mean, what the hell did you just do?
- Ron Stallworth: Sir, if you lay a finger on me, I'll arrest your ass for assaulting a police officer. That's worth about five years in prison. Try me. See if I'm playing.
- David Duke: Why don't you come down to Louisiana sometime? See how we play.
- Flip Zimmerman: Boy, you better get your nigger ass out of here now.
- Ron Stallworth: Mm-hmm, America first.
- Patrice Dumas: Are you down for the liberation of black people?
- Ron Stallworth: Power to the people.
- Patrice Dumas: All power to all the people.
- Ron Stallworth: That's right, sister.
- Ron Stallworth: Hello, this is Ron Stallworth calling. Who am I speaking with?
- David Duke: This is David Duke.
- Ron Stallworth: The Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, that David Duke?
- David Duke: The last time I checked. What can I do you for?
- Ron Stallworth: Well, since you asked, I hate niggers, I hate Jews. Spics and micks. Italians and chinks. But my mouth to God's ears, I really hate those black rats, and anyone else really that doesn't have pure white Aryan blood running through their veins!
- David Duke: I'm happy to be talking to a true white American.
- Ron Stallworth: God bless white America.
- Flip Zimmerman: For you it's a crusade. For me it's a job.
- Ron Stallworth: You're Jewish. They hate you. Doesn't that piss you off? Why are you acting like you don't got skin in the game?
- Andy Landers: [making an arrest] Black bitch, you get this Black Panther out of Colorado Springs before sunrise, you hear me? Or you'll all go to jail.
- Kwame Ture: We were born in jail!
- Ron Stallworth: [answering a phone call from Duke] Mr. Duke, I'm so sorry we didn't get to spend more one-on-one time together.
- David Duke: Well, that was a just a tragedy. I had just met those heroic brothers in the cause.
- Flip Zimmerman: Heroic.
- Ron Stallworth: Yeah. And the chapter is just shaken at the core.
- David Duke: Oh.
- Ron Stallworth: Yeah. And poor Connie, right? I mean, not only does she lose her husband, but...
- Flip Zimmerman: Poor Connie.
- Jimmy Creek: Connie's going away.
- Flip Zimmerman: We feel bad for Connie.
- Ron Stallworth: [continuing] ... she's looking at serious prison time.
- David Duke: My God. And then there was that nigger detective. Basically...
- [the officers laugh]
- Ron Stallworth: [to the other officers] Shut the fuck up. Shut the fuck up. Shut up, shut up. Those goddamn coloreds they sure know how to spoil a celebration.
- Jimmy Creek: [to Flip] Hey, you're getting me in trouble.
- David Duke: [to Ron] Christ, you can say that again.
- Ron Stallworth: Those goddamn coloreds sure know how to spoil a celebration. Can I ask you a question, sir?
- David Duke: Shoot.
- Ron Stallworth: That nigger detective, did you ever did you ever get his name?
- David Duke: No. I don't think I...
- Ron Stallworth: Are-uh you sure you don't know who he is? Are-uh you absolutely sure? 'Cause that nigga, coon, gator bait, spade, spook, Sambo, spear-chucking jungle bunny, Mississippi wind chime...
- David Duke: Wind chime?
- Ron Stallworth: [continuing] ... detective is Ron Stallworth, you racist, peckerwood, redneck, inch worm, needle-dick motherfucker!
- [Ron hangs up, leaving Duke bewildered]
