Trumpism goes local: Montana Republicans are helping this white nationalist get into office



A Liberty University-educated white supremacist is running for a seat in the Montana statehouse — and his campaign has attracted support from some prominent Republicans in the state.

Taylor Rose, the for­mer vice-president of the white nationalist Youth for West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion (YWC) campus group, spent significant time as a college student in Europe — where he made contacts with far-right and anti-Muslim groups — before returning to the U.S. and working as a staff reporter for the right-wing World Net Daily.

The 29-year-old Rose became enamored by European right-wing nationalism during the 2008 presidential campaign, saying he was attracted to its focus on cultural and identity issues instead of economics and politics.

“Christianity will become the unifying religious force for the Right-Wing movements in Europe and the USA, for the only way to have a true revival of Occidental power both inwardly and outwardly is for the Occident to return to its historical foundations rooted in Christianity,” Rose said, referring to the West in opposition to the Oriental east. “Humanism is a failure and the only hope for a restoration of strength and liberty is a conviction in the inspiration of Christianity’s absolutes.”
