Claim: More Trump KKK delegates to be revealed
White nationalists are bragging that there are more Trump delegates associated with their movement who will reveal themselves.
Trump’s California white nationalist delegate, William Johnson, might have pulled his name from the delegate list at the campaign’s request, but that hasn’t stopped other white nationalists from lining up to support Trump.
“[H]ere is what they don’t know: we have more delegates!” the American Freedom Party wrote on its Facebook page last week, Mother Jones reported Thursday.
Johnson confirmed to MoJo that he has nothing to do with the AFP’s page, but did acknowledge that Robert H. DePasquale is the man behind it. The Southern Poverty Law Center listsDePasquale as the tech guy behind the KKK’s web operations. They cite DePasquale as the poster of more than 20,000 racist and anti-Semitic messages on Stormfront.
The AFP also started a super PAC this year that has been paying for robocalls in primary and caucus states all over the country. Johnson even bragged to MoJo that he knows of at least one other KKK member who will serve as an honorary delegate for Trump, but refused to say who it was. He explained that the rest are probably flying under the radar.
