Kevin DeAnna, All Grown Up, Steps Down as YWC President
World Net Daily adds yet another creep to their roadside attraction zoo of wingnuts and zealots.
Kevin DeAnna has stepped down as president of Youth for Western Civilization, the ultraconservative student group he founded in 2006 and has run ever since.
“Comrades, I’m extremely proud of everything YWC has accomplished over the last few years,” the 28-year-old wrote in a letter posted on the group’s website Feb. 17. But, “for various personal (namely, I’m old) and professional reasons, I will no longer be in charge of YWC. For those of you who know me, I’ll still be working in the conservative movement but I’ll be doing different things and won’t be associated with what YWC will be doing after this.”
Those “different things” appear to already be happening. Recently, DeAnna changed his Twitter profile to describe himself as “marketing coordinator” for WorldNetDaily (WND), a far-right online publication best known for its anti-Obama “birther” propaganda. Apparently, he’ll also be serving as a reporter: His first item, a fawning interview with white nationalist pundit Pat Buchanan, appeared Sunday on WND.
