Roger Stone’s Pro-Trump Rally Will Be The Freak Show To The RNC Circus

Share

Published with permission from Media Matters for America

Supporters of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump will be holding an “America First Unity Rally”on July 18. The event, which will be hosted by Citizens for Trump and longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone, is being billed as “a massive victory rally & parade celebration of Mr. Trump’s nomination.”

The rally recently hit a speedbump after organizers were forced to drop a white nationalist website that had previously been featured in promotional materials as a sponsor. The person who produces the website in question also resigned from a position with hosting organization Citizens for Trump.

The “Unity” rally is slated to feature speakers and hosts with incendiary histories befitting of their support for Trump. The scheduled speakers have lobbed racist and sexist attacks against opponents; called for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders’ executions; openly discriminated against minorities; led the movement that claims the 9/11 attacks were an “inside job”; and alleged that President Obama and Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) are not American citizens.

Here are five things to know about the “America First Unity Rally.”

Co-Host Roger Stone Has A History Of Pushing Violent Rhetoric, Racist Taunts, Sexist Screeds And Discredited Research

Roger Stone is co-hosting the event and been heavily promoting it on Alex Jones’ conspiracy show (Jones is also speaking at the event). Stone is a longtime friend and ally of Trump and conducted a press gaggle at theJuly 16 Trump event that introduced running mate Mike Pence. He has a decades-long history of employing political dirty tricks, and regularly spouts violent, racist, and sexist rhetoric, including calling Hillary Clinton a “cunt” and advocating for her and Bernie Sanders’ executions.

Stone is also a discredited researcher and conspiracy theorist who claims the Clintons and Bushes secretly murdered dozens; the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 is “suspicious”; President Lyndon Johnson killed President John F. Kennedy; President George H.W. Bush tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan; and the Clintons killed John F. Kennedy Jr.

Leading 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Is A Speaker And Sponsor

Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones is speaking at the rally and has been encouraging his listeners to give “their time, their energy, and their money” to support it. Jones’ website Infowars.com is sponsoring the event. Jones is a 9/11 truther who said after the terrorist attacks: “Those were controlled demolitions. You just watched the government blow up the World Trade Center.” His website claimed that Jones “predicted the attacks on September 11th, 2001 and is considered one of the very first founding fathers of the 9-11 Truth Movement.”

Jones also believes the government was behind national tragedies like the Oklahoma City bombing, Boston Marathon bombing, Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, and mass shootings in Aurora, CO, and Newtown, CT.

A White Nationalist Website Previously Sponsored The Event

The white nationalist website Eternal Sentry previously sponsored the event. Eternal Sentry is a self-described “altright” website that features racist and anti-Semitic material, repeatedly warns about “White Genocide,” and is produced by former Citizens for Trump staffer Paul Chambers, who said whites need to “fight back” against African-Americans and “send them back to the mud-huts they so desperately and obviously desire.”

Following Media Matters’ reporting, Citizens for Trump’s Tim Selaty told Cleveland.com he was not aware of Chambers’ “harmful” views and that his group had failed to do its “due diligence.” According to Selaty, Chambers “decided to drop his sponsorship and resign his volunteer position on our staff.”

Speaker Jan Morgan Bans Muslims From Her Business

Jan Morgan is a rally speaker and national spokesperson for Citizens for Trump. Morgan owns an Arkansas gun range that bans Muslim customers, explaining, “why would I hand a loaded gun to a muslim and allow him to shoot lethal weapons next to people his koran commands him to kill?”

Morgan has claimed that “Islam is also not a religion, It is a theocracy and terrorist cult that hides behind the mask of religion in order to acheive (sic) its mission of world domination.”

Organizer Citizens For Trump Claims President Obama Is A Kenyan Citizen

Citizens For Trump posted an April 15 image asking, “Isn’t it Time ‘We the People’ Elected An American Citizen for President?” and claiming President Obama, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) are respectively Kenyan, Cuban, and Canadian citizens.

In August 2015, Citizens for Trump posted an image of President Obama with the caption, “If Trump Becomes President I’m Moving Back To Africa.”

    Those who wonder why there is so much violence in the USA, and don’t understand the ideological divisions that separate us, need to go no further than listen to what nuts like these are saying to understand what is behind the social unrest we are seeing almost on a daily basis. Who needs ISIS with people like Alex Jones and his followers around? Incredibly, or perhaps not, there are tens of thousands of people who believe the bizarre statements that Alex, and others do, and agree and support their message of hate, and the not so subtle rejection of government, law and order, and calls to arm.

      Unfortunate, but true. People like Jones, Stone and company feed the fears of those always willing to believe in conspiracies. This is just like G. Gordon Liddy warning of the black helicopters and “jack-booted thugs”, of which team he used to be a member.

        The funniest part of the neo-conservative rhetoric is the desperate efforts by Trump acolytes to portray our next potential First Lady as an example of sophistication, while calling American women pigs.
        I guess an Eastern European accent. broken English, and nude photos must be of great importance for the family values gang.

          So, what are you saying….you now want nude pictures of Hillary too? Why are you progressives so obsessed with sex? Very strange, indeed. (Maybe Bill Clinton can supply you with some nude pictures because he’s got a bunch of ’em…..although none will be Hillary!)
          P.S……be careful if you look….some of them may get you in trouble for child pornography….you know, Bill’s 28 trips to Pedophile Island with Jeff Epstein on “Lolita Air”.

            Are you a Middle School or High School student. Please consider a crash course in English comprehension.
            In the interim, your neo-conservative pals may be able to teach their new interpretation of family values.

            But, Dominick, I fear your kind heart has caused you to give AgLander credit for far more education than his posts have ever demonstrated. Judging by his numerous posts that I have read I sincerely doubt that his education has progressed beyond the second grade and his comprehension and reasoning is still at pre-school level

          And, when it has been proven by several fact finding groups that Trump has lied 59% of the time to Hillary’s 12%. AND, considering that Trump is only a year older, I believe, than Hillary (not sure on that one, but I know their ages are very close), and considering that Trump’s gang is allowing their conventioneers to carry weapons (as mentioned above, on TV, it showed them carrying AK-47’s and other types of rifles over their shoulders…..why, who knows?), it amazes me that certain people who are posting on this website are so brainwashed that they actually believe everything that Trump and his cohorts put out there!!! Apparently, they have forgotten how to think for themselves or do proper research because all they are doing is mouthing the same BS that the GOP has been feeding them for the past several months!

      It’s not Jones who did fast and furious, has a blood trail miles long, gives our secrets to our enemies and other crimes. Keep swatting that guppy, there’s a big shark right behind you

    Compare that to the illegal weaponization of the Federal government by the Obama administration in a coordinated attack against law abiding conservative groups and individuals to silence their First Amendment Rights using coordinated cross agency intimidation by the IRS, DOJ, FEC (Federal Election Commission) and SEC. We are living in dangerous times when conservative political beliefs will get you harassed or prosecuted by a thuggish and corrupt Obama directed administration. Put a stop to it in November by cleansing the swamp of Democrats in D.C.

        Do you read? Is it at a level that will allow understanding of words beyond street level grunts and hand signals? If so, I strongly recommend you read a book by highly respected journalist Kim Strassel…..”The Intimidation Game”.

          “Is it at a level that will allow understanding of words beyond street level grunts and hand signals?” If it is above the level of grunts and snarls then it will go over the head of Trumpsters.

    The author of this article is a creation of, and disciple of Al Franken and the Super Pac Franken created to funnel dark money to Democrats……I guess this makes the material presented as trash can material!

    What a crock of crap this website is! But then what do we expect from liberals but slander, name/mud slinging,
    put downs, dirty tricks, and big big lies!
    That has proven itself over and over the years. But with the candidate who is the “Queen of lies and forgetfulness” (possibly due to getting old) and senility? Or maybe she was always that way and we just did not see it till Trump exposed her for what she is?

    “The rally recently hit a speedbump after organizers were forced to drop a white nationalist website…The person who produces the website in question also resigned from a position …”
    Seems like Trump is limiting the First Amendment rights of his supporters. Is this a precursor to what his administration would do to Congress, the SCOTUS, and ordinary American citizens who disagreed with, or embarrassed, The Donald? These are His People, after all, that he’s just tossed off the bus. Without their vocal, though bigoted, support, Ted Cruz would be the GOP nominee.

    The scariest part is that on TV this morning, it showed convention attendees walking around with AK-47’s and the like!! Why do these people need to bring rifles to a convention? I can understand Cleveland’s “open carry” law, but I don’t understand the need for such assault rifles being taken to a convention. I can guarantee you that something serious is going to happen during this week’s convention…..some anti-Trump protester is going to be mowed down or worse! There is NO reason why anyone needs to even bring a gun to a convention, and I’m surprised that it’s being allowed even in an “open carry” state! What do they think they need to be protected from…..words from an anti-Trump protester? Remember, “sticks and stones…….” Apparently, they don’t understand that at all, and it scares me. I pray that nothing happens, but this showing of fire power does not settle my nerves.

    I was wondering what happened to this week in crazy, but I guess we’re down to everyday is crazy. Besides, “This Week” could make you laugh. Now I just want to cry or head for a bomb shelter.
