The Montana Human Rights Network (MHRN) characterized the conference as a platform for “anti-government extremism and anti-Indian bigotry”. It helped organize a protest a mile from the conference venue, in a park in downtown Whitefish. Around 300 people attended. A spokeswoman for MHRN, Cherliyn DeVries, said Bundy’s invitation to the New Code of the West event was “very disappointing” and did not reflect the views of the local community, which she said was “supported by public lands”. “He’s proven himself to be a violent extremist,” she said. “Violent extremists divide communities … This is not who we are. The middle is broad and deep.”
“*mouth drop*,” wrote Ms. Biles, who is sponsored by Nike. “don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything.” By Saturday night, Ms. Bono had apologized and deleted the tweet. “I deeply regret posting the tweet because I respect everyone’s views and their fundamental right to express them,” she said in a statement released by U.S.A. Gymnastics. “This in no way reflects how I will approach my position at U.S.A. Gymnastics. I will do everything I can to help change the culture and to work with the entire community to build an open, safe and positive environment.” A spokeswoman for U.S.A. Gymnastics did not answer questions on Saturday night about how the organization had vetted Ms. Bono or whether it agreed with her anti-Nike sentiments.
McInnes has insisted that he is not a white supremacist or member of the alt-right. But his past comments include suggesting Muslims are “more violent” due to inbreeding, referring to Asians as “slopes,” and defending the use of the N-word. He’s written for VDARE.com, which the Southern Poverty Law Center identifies as a “White Nationalist” hate group, and was recently banned by Twitter for violating the platform’s policy on “violent extremist groups.” Members of the Proud Boys were present at the white supremacist #UniteTheRight rally in Charlottesville where Heather Heyer was killed. Still, Reilly said that the Republican organization does not have any misgivings about hosting McInnes, noting that the Proud Boy founder’s views don’t differ much from those of previous Metropolitan Club guests, like Tucker Carlson, Newt Gingrich, and Ann Coulter. “He is part of the right,” Reilly told Gothamist. “We promote people and ideas of all kinds from the right. We’re open to different views. We would never invite anyone who would incite violence.”
Lindsey Coleman, the finance director for the campaign, then drove to the local Republican field office to return the money. Almost immediately, the man who identified himself as Rosales appeared from a room inside the office and was identified as Oscar. He accepted the money from Coleman. Speaking to the Guardian, Coleman identified the second man as a field organizer for the Arizona Republican party and said Ahmahd Sadia was not his real name. Neither the Arizona Republican party nor Wendy Rogers, O’Halleran’s Republican opponent for Congress, responded to requests for comment.

Hitler, addressing workers at the Siemens Dynamo Works in Berlin in November 1933, railed against a “small, rootless, international clique”. They are “the people who are at home both nowhere and everywhere, who do not have anywhere a soil on which they have grown up, but who live in Berlin today, in Brussels tomorrow, Paris the day after that, and then again in Prague or Vienna or London, and who feel at home everywhere,” he said, as a man in the audience shouts “the Jews!” Historian Michael Wolffsohn said it was no accident Gauland had written his column in this manner. “It is bad that Gauland is signalling to his educated followers that he knows the speech and style of Hitler’s speech and that he is transferring Hitler’s accusations against the Jews to the opponents of the AfD today,” said Wolffsohn.
The campaign official, Rick Gates, sought one proposal to use bogus personas to target and sway 5,000 delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention by attacking Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Mr. Trump’s main opponent at the time. Another proposal describes opposition research and “complementary intelligence activities” about Mrs. Clinton and people close to her, according to copies of the proposals obtained by The New York Times and interviews with four people involved in creating the documents.
Within the AfD, Steinke’s thoughts on Nazi ideology were known well before his unequivocal Facebook post lambasting von Stauffenberg. Sources close to Steinke leaked a recorded conversation to DW of him with a colleague in which he justifies Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland in September 1939. Steinke can be heard saying that describing Germany’s invasion as an act of aggression equates to a falsification of history. Steinke claims Hitler was “forced” to act in this way and that “every politician would have acted just like Hitler.” Neither Steinke nor the AfD were willing to comment on the recording.
