Florida GOP candidate Ron DeSantis spoke to ‘racially charged’ extremist meetings: report

Published

on

Florida Republican Ron DeSantis has been under fire since the morning after he won the state’s GOP primary and declared that voters should support him over his “articulate” black opponent who would “monkey up” the state.

Now, the Washington Post is reporting that DeSantis also spoke at “racially charged” events organized by extremist David Horowitz, who has been called an Islamaphobe and who has been thrown off Twitter and had his ability to receive donations blocked by Visa and Mastercard.

Horowitz has made controversial statements such as tweeting that American blacks owe their freedom to whites.

“Black Africans enslaved black Africans. America freed them sacrificing 350k mainly white Union lives. American blacks are richer, more privileged, freer than blacks anywhere in the world, including all black run countries,” he wrote.

The Trump-loving DeSantis has attended several of Horowitz’s “Restoration Weekend conferences” attended by people like Stephen K. Bannon, Milo Yiannopoulos, Sebastian Gorka, James O’Keefe, Ben Shapiro and Geert Wilders.

At one, DeSantis described himself as an “admirer” of Horowitz.

Speaking to the Post, Horowitz attempted to distance himself from DeSantis.

“You can’t pin me on DeSantis. He’s not like me,” he said.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
