GOP Congressman Posed With White Supremacist Who Organized Charlottesville Rally

Source: LawNewz

A photograph of Congressman Tom Garrett posing with Jason Kessler–the white nationalist who organized last night’s violent neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia–is making its way across social media.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Kessler is a relative newcomer to white nationalism–having at one time been supportive of former President Barack Obama and the Occupy Wall Street movement.

A failed author of two novels, Kessler now traffics in standard issue white supremacist phantasms of “white genocide” and “[white] demographic displacement” as well as general complaints about liberalism, black people, Islam and Judaism.

Before organizing the #UniteTheRight rally, he founded Unity and Security for America, which the SPLC describes as, “a nativist, white nationalist group.”

10. Oh man, it's worth checking out Heller's twitter page!

He says he doesn't know who this (Nazi) guy is. Nobody's buying it. He's being brutalized and deservedly so!

6. The ads almost write themselves....

This should definitely be used (in the most devastating way possible) by Garrett's and Heller's opponents.

9. The pukes have been

dancing with the devil. Now they're gonna whine if held accountable for the logical outcome of the racism they've been tacitly encouraging.
