White nationalists cite area’s ‘80% Trump vote’ to hold ‘white working family’ event in Kentucky park

Published

on

A white nationalists group announced on Facebook that it is planning to hold a conference for “white working families” at a Kentucky state park in April, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

The Traditionalist Worker Party said in a Facebook post this week that the group had chosen Eastern Kentucky because “Pike County is 98.35% European and went over 80% for Trump in the recent elections.” The group noted that “dinner, speeches, live music, and training seminars” would be held at Jenny Wiley State Park in Floyd County.

“Dress code for men is a black work shirt, black pants, and black boots; with an organizational patch on the left arm,” the Facebook post explained. “Women are requested to dress modestly and in black as well.”

Attendees were also “encouraged to wear a black military style cap and aviator style sunglasses” and to “be prepared for possible Leftist attacks.”

Kentucky State Parks pointed out in a statement that the state “cannot discriminate against individuals or groups under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.”

The park system said that the Traditionalist Worker Party had misrepresented the event as a family reunion and would need to reapply for a proper permit.

“The executed contract for this event was for a family reunion, and the parks department was not notified of the intent of this meeting until late last evening,” the statement said. “As a public event, a different contract will be required. The new contract will include safety and other provisions, and the group will have to reapply under the correct process.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the Traditionalist Worker Party as a hate group “that advocates for racially pure nations and communities and blames Jews for many of the world’s problems.”

Matthew Heimbach, a leader of the group, was charged last year for shoving a black woman at a Trump rally.

Major Democratic committee chairs who were instrumental in shaping the final resolution, including Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) were reportedly also not invited to the signing.

Democratic votes were critical to the ultimate passage of USMCA, and also played a role in influencing the final, bipartisan details of the agreement.

Published

On CNN's "New Day," regular contributor and former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart almost rolled his eyes at a clip of Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?" Lockhart seemed in disbelief that she may have handed Biden a boost.
