White Nationalist Spotted at Kris Kobach for Governor Fundraiser in Washington, D.C.
In which we find Marcus Epstein; while he’s most known for assaulting a black woman while screaming racial slurs, we originally came across him organizing meetings of white nationalists like Pat Buchanan, Euronazi imports like Filip Dewinter, and supporters of Ron Paul back in 2006 or so.
Less than two weeks after citing holocaust denier and racist Peter Gemma in his Breitbart column, Kobach held a fundraiser in Washington, D.C, for his Kansas gubernatorial campaign. At the November 3 event, Kobach posted a photo of himself on his Twitter account with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Behind both men, clearly visible, is longtime white nationalist Marcus Epstein.
Epstein has been active in the white nationalist scene for over a decade and even has a past history of racial criminality. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to assaulting an African-American woman in Washington, D.C., two years prior. His appearance at Kobach’s fundraiser is another indication that the Trump era is serving to rehabilitate not only the ideas once relegated to the racist fringe, but also the careers of movement members. It also underscores the social and political circles that Kobach has long moved in.
