GOP Nebraska Governor Condemns Former Staffer, Says He Had No Idea He Was A Neo-Nazi

A few days ago I wrote a piece “Neo-Nazis Openly Declare Plans To Take Over The GOP.” If you didn’t read it at that time, you will want to do so now, because this is real. The GOP Governor of Nebraska, Pete Ricketts, evidently just learned that his former campaign staffer, Bennett Bressman, who was the centerpiece of the Splinter article I quoted, made anti-Semitic statements in an online chat room. This is what Ricketts had to say: “I unequivocally denounce his hate-filled views towards Jewish people, LGBT people, African Americans, journalists, women, and others. I am particularly concerned about his anti-Semitic statements. Anti-Semitism has no place in society no matter where it hides. The State of Nebraska stands with Israel and has been a home to thousands of Jewish families for generations. We are only a generation removed from World War II, during which millions of Jews who were killed because of their heritage and 400,000 American soldiers died to stamp out Nazism and its anti-Semitic ideology. We will continue to make this state a welcoming place for the Jewish faith and work with faith leaders to root out anti-Semitism wherever it may be.” The NEGOP released the following statement, as well. Bressman worked as an unpaid intern for the Nebraska Republican Party. “The views expressed by Mr. Bressman online are abhorrent, and have no place in the Nebraska Republican Party or civil society,” said NEGOP Executive Director Ryan Hamilton. “Had the Party been aware he harbored those beliefs, he never would have been permitted to volunteer and had the Party become aware of them during his time as an intern, he would have been terminated immediately.” Bressman announced his goals in the chat room in no uncertain terms, stating that the main one was, “taking over the GOP and spreading white identity,” by joining up at the local level. In an announcement message that month, “Bennet” encouraged members to get involved in local politics. “Today I decided to get involved with my county’s Republican party,” he said, adding, “The GOP is essentially the White man’s party at this point (it gets Whiter every election cycle), so it makes far more sense for us to subvert it than to create our own party…if you’re unable to do activism for various reasons, I’d like to encourage you to join your local Republican party. Present as a Trump supporter/nationalist. No need to broadcast your radical views.” The day after Trump was elected, both the neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan marched proudly in the streets. The neo-Nazis held a rally in Washington D.C. and tossed off the Nazi salute with glee, “Hail Trump!” while hate crimes spiked in the 72 hours post election, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The white nationalists and the KKK have always been present in the Republican party, along with religious extremists, the evangelicals, but the election of Trump empowered and emboldened them. Apparently now, the neo-Nazis are looking to make one last stand to consolidate the power they already have and to expand. There’s two schools of thought as to whether these controversial groups are splinter factions of the GOP, or if they represent mainstream GOP thought. Pete Ricketts is taking the stance that the neo-Nazis are not the GOP and are not welcome. Whatever wink wink nudge […]

One year later, Trump still not putting the blame for Charlottesville where it belongs

Welcome to Trump’s America. Neo Nazi’s on your ballots. (With a video)

Former GOP House Speaker came right out and called it what is is today, when he said that “There is no Republican party, there is the Trump party.” Trump is hell bent to not only take over the GOP, he wants the party to be his own personal property, a political Trump Taj Mahal. And […]
