Ron DeSantis’ Wife Recently Attended Conference With A White Supremacist Speaker
Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis has been caught numerous times saying racist things or hanging out with racist groups and people, but it turns out this is somewhat of a family theme — according to the Miami New Times, the Republican’s wife was recently discovered attending an event with an alt-right conspiracy theorist.
> DeSantis' wife Casey showed up at an event in South Florida this past Tuesday night alongside Trevor Loudon, a batshit-insane conservative commentator and author who, much like John Birch Society conspiracy theorists of long ago, believes that basically all nonwhite people and Democratic politicians are part of a communist conspiracy to destroy America.
> Loudon, who is originally from New Zealand, has not only endorsed the Birch Society but also authored pieces for the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that the Southern Poverty Law Centerlists as an anti-Muslim "extremist group."
> After the 2017 Charlottesville Unite the Right rally, Loudon's website published an article claiming the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who organized the rally (and killed a woman) were left-wing communists. Loudon alsofounded KeyWiki, a Wikipedia-style website where users can look up which progressive groups Loudon has linked to communist crime-doers. (Hint: It's all of them.)
Casey and Loudon both attended and spoke at a meeting of the Broward Women's Republican Club at a Fort Lauderdale Olive Garden.
According to one attendee, Loudon "gave an amazing presentation on what is at stake for the next three election cycles”, and Casey largely provided a campaign update.
