Last February, right-wing commentator Nick Fuentes (22 years old) was permanently banned by YouTube after continuously ignoring warnings about hate speech. Now he has his own podcast, America First, eagerly followed by wanna-be fascists. A vicious Jew-hating, homophobic, neo-Nazi Trumpist, Fuentes is mentally ill but has a large following (white nationalist Groypens). He generally advocates violence.
Yesterday Fuentes was a speaker at the MAGA demonstration in DC. Watch him on the video above, calling for the destruction of the GOP-- for not supporting Trump-- and singling out Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler as RINOs. I wonder how many Groypens there are in Georgia. There must be plenty. In the northwest part of the state crackpot Q-Anon lunatic, Marjorie Taylor Green, won 229,827 votes (74.6%). That there is a lot of crazy.
It sure would be ironic if Rev. Raphael Warnock were to beat Loeffler at the January 5th runoff because these Groypens decided to follow Fuentes' advice. The last black Georgia senator was... never. Ossoff is Jewish and the last Jewish senator in Georgia was John Cohen, actually an Episcopalian with a Jewish father, appointed to the Senate by Governor Richard Russell in 1932 and serving for 8 months after the death of William Harris. (Cohen was a DNC vice chair and Russell appointed him with the understanding he would not run for election, making it possible for Russell himself to take the seat in 1933. Russell held onto it until he died in 1971, then the leader of a dominant conservative coalition in the Senate consisting of racists and rightists from both parties. If you'd like to help Warnock and Ossoff replace Perdue and Warnock, please click on the Blue America Senate thermometer on the right and contribute what you can directly to either or both their campaigns.
And while we're at it, talking about unhinged Trump goons with a platform-- the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell was at the same rally yesterday and wanted to make sure the crowd knew that Fox was part of the conspiracy to steal the election from Señor Trumpanzee. "This fraud is real. It’s of epic proportions that this election was stolen... They were going for everything. They were going to take everything we had. Why do you think Fox declared Arizona with only 14% of the vote in? They already knew what they did! They were in on it!"
And there's another kind of Republican advocating against Perdue and Loeffler as well-- cash rich but without any kind of grassroots following. Do you think anyone will pay attention to their new ad-- released last night?
