Yet Another Donald Trump Spokesperson Associating With a White Supremacist

The Trump campaign has a clear affinity for racists of all stripes
Politics • Views: 62,764

What is it about Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and his inner circle that attracts them so often to white supremacists?

Trump has retweeted white supremacist Twitter accounts at least five times now, his son recently retweeted an especially notorious white supremacist, and now here’s Trump’s main media spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, posing for a photo with infamous white supremacist Chuck C. Johnson.

If you didn’t realize Johnson is a white supremacist, or you think I might be exaggerating, here are some facts about Chuck C. Johnson’s history you may not be aware of.

Before Johnson was permanently banned from Twitter, he also retweeted white supremacist accounts — not once, not five times, but dozens of times. He frequently uses the same sayings as white supremacists (e.g. “anti-racist is code for anti-white”). He has often expressed his support for Nazi theories of eugenics. He believes black people and other minorities are genetically predisposed to violent behavior.

Johnson once went on an epic drunken Twitter rant in which he posted the N-word over and over, at least seven times in a row. That same night, he also retweeted a white supremacist again.

Before he was banned, Johnson also followed numerous white supremacist Twitter accounts, and one of his closest associates who has worked with him on several of his ludicrous stunts (such as publishing the “leaked” Center for Medical Progress videos) is Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer — an overt white supremacist with a big tattoo of a swastika on his chest.

Johnson has written several articles for white supremacist and white nationalist websites such as Takimag and Vdare. (Warning: those links go to openly racist websites; not safe for work.)

Earlier this month he attended the annual conference of the white supremacist group “the National Policy Institute.”

Here’s a screenshot of a recent Facebook post in which he posed for a photo with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, then trashed him with grotesque racist language, arguing that blacks were better off under Jim Crow laws.

This is far from an exhaustive list; since being banned from Twitter, Johnson has posted links to racist and white supremacist sites on his Facebook page many times.

Now, whenever someone points out all these things to Chuck he denies he’s a white supremacist, saying he’s just “intellectually curious.” But with this long list of his own professed beliefs and his open associations and affinity with the racist subculture, I leave it to you, dear reader, to decide for yourself if he’s telling the truth about that.
