You really can’t make this stuff up. This past weekend, at the Trump , Virginia Del. John McGuire (R) – who recently was defeated by Del. Nick Freitas for the VA07 GOP nomination – did an interview with “One America News Network”‘s Jack Posobiec, heaping praise on Trump as loving the troops, blah blah blah. Just a quick reminder who Posobiec is, from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hatewatch” feature on him:
Jack Posobiec, a correspondent for One America News Network (OANN) whose work has been embraced by President Trump, collaborated for years with white supremacists, neo-fascists and antisemites, a Hatewatch investigation has determined.
Posobiec’s ties to far-right extremists travel beyond borders into Europe. His connections to white supremacy are too numerous to compile into one article, so Hatewatch is running a series of stories on the correspondent’s ties to the movement and promotion of it. This first story in the series lays out how Posobiec rose from being a pseudonymous Game of Thrones blogger to linking up with such white supremacists as Richard Spencer and a neo-Nazi who endorsed terrorism while using the online handle @PureWhiteEvil.
As for “OANN,” that’s “a far-right, pro-Donald Trump cable channel” that ” is prominent for promoting falsehoods and conspiracy theories.” The fact that Del. McGuire would do an interview with these guys tells you a great deal about where the Virginia GOP’s collective head is at these days…
