Arkansas House Speaker Salutes Failed Racist Candidate Billy Roper
Outspoken white racist Billy Roper, the neo-Nazi founder of White Revolution and former deputy outreach coordinator at the now-defunct National Alliance (NA), failed miserably Nov. 2 as a write-in candidate for governor of Arkansas. But he did get a nice consolation prize: a letter from the speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives, Robbie Wills, congratulating him on his efforts and wishing him better luck next time.
“It takes a special person to put their name on the ballot, and it says a lot about you that you had so many willing to help you with your campaign,” Wills’ letter reads. “You should be very proud of your campaign and you have my admiration and respect for making the effort. … I hope you will consider running for office again in the future.”
