Trump Adviser And GOP Congressmen Gave Pro-Trump Interviews To White Nationalist Radio Host At RNC



Remember this guy's face? There was a big scandal a few months ago about him getting press credentials at a Trump rally. Apparently the Trump campaign didn't mind doing it again...

Several members of Congress and a Trump campaign official gave pro-Trump interviews to white nationalist leader James Edwards and his “pro-white” radio show The Political Cesspool during the Republican National Convention. Edwards is a David Duke acolyte and “has probably done more than any of his contemporaries on the American radical right to publicly promote neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, raging anti-Semites and other extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Edwards pointed to his attendance at the convention as evidence that he and his radio program are going “mainstream.”

The Political Cesspool States It Represents “A Philosophy That Is Pro-White.” The Political Cesspool is a Tennessee-based radio program hosted by James Edwards. The program’s statement of principles says it represents “a philosophy that is pro-White.” One of its principles reads, “We wish to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility and beyond to grow the percentage of Whites in the world relative to other races.” [ThePoliticalCesspool.org, accessed 7/24/16]

Edwards During RNC Show: “We’re Unequivocally Pro-White. This Is A Show That Advances The Interests Of European-Americans.” [Liberty News Radio, The Political Cesspool, 7/23/16]

2. My immediate thought as well.

I trash one of those threads and three new OPs replace it.

5. Oh wow

That is big, big news and the media should be covering it. What could be more embarrassing than this sort of connection? Oh maybe connections to Putin. Well well, two very big stories - McGreedia should get on them right away!

6. Sadly, I've stopped expecting the media to do their jobs.

I doubt Trump would be the Republican nominee if they actually reported the facts.
