GOP Responds to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Attending Fringe Conference Organized by White Nationalist

Rep. (R-Ga.) continues to face backlash from within her own party for participating in a conference organized by a white supremacist who encouraged a chant supporting authoritarian Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

But that wasn’t all.

The event, America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC), was organized by Nick Fuentes, who has a long history of making racist and anti-Semitic remarks. Formally the host of the America First podcast, Fuentes rose to prominence after attending the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

Greene later downplayed her participation at AFPAC, saying that she didn’t know who the organizers were or what they stood for.

Her excuse for accepting an invitation from a prominent white supremacist didn’t calm frustrated Republican leaders.

Besides Greene, other controversial members of the GOP spoke at Fuentes’ event.

Responding to the news, Sen. told The Washington Post “there’s no place in the for white supremacists or anti-Semitism.”

House Minority Leader shared a similar statement, noted Business Insider:

“For me it was appalling and wrong. And there’s no place in our party for any of this,” said McCarthy. “The party should not be associated any time any place with somebody who is anti-Semitic.”

Sen. Mitt Romney was more direct regarding the politically radioactive situation on CNN’s Sunday morning show “State of the Union,” saying “Morons. I’ve got morons on my team.”

The latest fallout from Greene’s appearance came earlier this week when Trump-endorsed GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker backed out of a planned event with the congresswoman.
