It’s been 2 weeks since Rep. Paul Gosar attended a white nationalist event as a keynote speaker, and so far, no Republicans have spoken up about it. In the past, it seemed like such an appearance would be condemned. But this time, Republicans are saying nothing.
That includes Gov. Doug Ducey, who spoke out bluntly about racism previously. “One of the questions asked of me at the meeting was whether I thought racism was a sin and I said of course it’s a sin,” he said back in June.
But in the two weeks since Gosar spoke at a white nationalist event headlined by Holocaust-denier Nick Fuentes, Ducey has declined repeated requests to comment.
Two weeks ago, AFPAC held its annual conference where Fuentes told his audience, “This country wouldn’t exist without white people and white people are done being bullied.” Fuentes spoke for over an hour and said, “If it loses its white demographic core and if it loses its faith in Jesus Christ then this is not America, anymore.”
