Stockton coin dealer outed for contributing $1,000 to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign

By Lynda Carson — September 4, 2017

Stockton coin dealer Robert W. Hallam, owner of Avenue Coin Inc., is a proud supporter of KKK fascist David Duke. Public records reveal that Robert W. Hallam contributed $1,000 to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign during 2016.

According to JM Buillon.com, Robert W. Hallam is one of the state’s biggest brokers of precious metals and coins.

According to wikipedia, David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, politician, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, convicted felon, and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

The recent violent white supremacist rally that David Duke attended in Charlottesville, resulted in blood in the streets of Charlottesville, and the death of Heather Heyer when she was run down by an alleged Nazi sympathizer while she was protesting against the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. Reportedly, 19 others were injured when the Nazi sympathizer plowed into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators.

Reportedly, Stockton has a history of Ku Klux Klan marches, and a history of racism. According to Michael Fitzgerald, “But a history of Stockton’s racism would find some of California’s worst transgressions. Murderous hatred of Chinese argonauts; laws prohibiting Japanese from owning land; laws forbidding Asians from living north of downtown; exploitation of migrant workers; redlining of African-American homebuyers; CC&Rs prohibiting sales of northiside homes to people of color; de facto segregation by Stockton Unified schools; and our own act of domestic terrorism, the Cleveland Schoolyard massacre.”

Robert W. Hallam’s local business competitors at Cassidy’s Jewelry and Loan, 393 E. Market St., in Stockton, and Stockton Cash for Gold at 5757 Pacific Ave., #220, in Stockton, may feel like it is their lucky day.

If it turns out that the clients of Avenue Coin, Inc., decide to give their business to them, instead of Robert W. Hallam, because of his dealings with David Duke, they would be making a righteous stand against hate, the Ku Klux Klan, and white supremacy.

The businesses of others who have been outed recently for making campaign contributions to David Duke’s failed 2016 Senate campaign, including Roger Grigsby, owner of O’meil restaurant in Santa Cruz, and Julius De Roma, owner of Clubhouse Jager in Minneapolis, did not fare to well according to a recent report by Newsweek, and the New York Times.

Businesses owned by Roger Grigsby and Julius De Roma faced a boycott and employees refusing to work for them any longer after it was revealed that they each made a $500 campaign contribution to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign in 2016.

Roger Grigsby was originally outed as a proud campaign contributor to David Duke in an article on Indybay, in addition to Julius De Roma, who was also originally outed as a proud supporter and campaign contributor to David Duke in a different story on Indybay, a community news site in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Both business owners were also outed in an original story that appeared in the San Francisco Bay View Newspaper, and the mainstream media followed suit with their own stories as the boycotts occurred and the longtime establishments reportedly have been shut down.

If Stockton coin dealer Robert W. Hallam, owner of Avenue Coin Inc., is luckier than Julius De Roma, owner of Clubhouse Jager, and Roger Grigsby, owner of O’mei restaurant, his business competitors may not be able to capitalize on the fact that he was outed for contributing $1,000 to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign of 2016.
