Trump supporters supporting neo-nazism

This 10 May 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

Turning Point USA Leader Gives White Power Symbol

Conservatives are making excuses for the leader of the Las Vegas chapter of Turning Point USA who gave a white power sign in a viral video. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Francesca Fiorentini, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“His friend does most of the talking but Turning Point USA Las Vegas Chapter leader Riley Grisar is literally in bed with her giving the white power hand sign: Turning Point USA was founded and is led by Trump supporter Charlie Kirk: Donald Trump Jr. spoke at its “Summit Action Meeting” just last year and in 2016. This video might get lost in the general turmoil of drumpf’s rolling goat rodeo of criminality and corruption but it should be really bad news for Team Trump, Charlie Kirk and Jr. But fk all those guys that’s what happens when you get in bed with racists and anti-Semites.”

Trump-supporting group’s chapter president was caught on tape promoting ‘white power’ and hurling racists slurs

The Trump-linked right wing conservative college group Turning Point USA has removed the president of its University of Nevada, Las Vegas chapter after he appeared in a viral “white power” video.

TPUSA-UNLV president Riley Grisar appears in the video making the “OK” hand sign “employed by many in the alt-right, and then saying ‘white power’ twice,” Talking Points Memo reports.

“We’re going to rule the country. White power,” yells an unnamed woman sitting next to him in the video. “Fuck the n******,” she says repeatedly.

“Yeah, fuck ‘em all. Fuck ‘em all. That’s right,” says the cameraman, who also says, “white power.”

TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk is good friends with Donald Trump Jr., and the two have campaigned for the president together. Kirk also once interviewed President Trump.

Turning Point USA has had more than its fair share of racist and extremist controversies. Its now-former communications director, Candace Owens, was excoriated after appearing to defend Adolf Hitler, telling a group in London that he just wanted to make Germany great and his “problem” was his “dreams outside of Germany.” She did not mention the millions of German Jews he massacred, not to mention the millions of others inside and outside Germany’s borders he slaughtered.

The far right wing group was created with funding from Christian right billionaire Republican donor Foster Friess. Friess is likely best known for telling NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell that “this contraceptive thing, my gosh, it’s so – it’s such – inexpensive, you know, back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”

TRUMP’S DECEITFUL DAY WITH YOUNG REPUBLICANS Trump on Tuesday used his speech to Turning Point USA to further his racist and false attacks on four minority congresswomen. The group, the largest group for collegiate Republicans, has more than 1,000 chapters and a pattern of racism and white supremacy in its top ranks. [HuffPost]
