Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Slams Trump for Meeting with White Supremacist

A story in today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp criticized former President Donald Trump’s dinner party with Nick Fuentes.

“Racism, antisemitism and denial of the Holocaust have no place in the Republican Party and are completely un-American.” nation’s most prominent white nationalist figure,” said Kemp.


Nick Fuentes is a political commentator who gained a national online following, with an audience that primarily consisted of white supremacists and holocaust deniers who shared his views.  Fuentes celebrated the Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan, has collaborated with Neo-Nazi leaders and also attended a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. In YouTube removed Fuentes’ channel in 2020, citing violations of their hate speech policy. Fuentes self-identifies as a member of the involuntary celibate and as Catholic integralist, however he has no official ties to any catholic leadership nor is he supported or endorsed by any Catholic church. In 2017, Fuentes said hat “a tidal wave of white identity is coming,” he has cast doubt on whether the Holocaust took place, and he has said that the era of Jim Crow segregation and racial terrorism against Black people in America was “better for them.”
