Hmmm…. It’s always the Jews making Republicans blackmailing their mistresses.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) apparently broke his pledge to give away contributions from a white supremacist leader who inspired a shooting at a black church in Charleston, S.C., in 2015. Another Texas lawmaker, Sen. Ted Cruz (R), donated to the victims but fell short of his pledge.
Gohmert and Cruz were among 23 Republican politicians who reportedly pledged to give away money they received from white supremacist leader Earl Holt, whose group helped to inspire the Charleston shooting. A review by ThinkProgress found that only Gohmert and Cruz apparently did not completely follow through on their promises to donate at least the amount they received to charitable causes.
Holt is president of the Council of Conservative Citizens, which the Southern Poverty Law Center considers a hate group. After the attack on Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the shooter, Dylann Roof, credited Holt’s website with helping to develop his racist views.
In an online manifesto, since taken down, Roof wrote about doing on online search for “black on White [sic] crime.”
“The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens,” Roof wrote. “There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White[sic] murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong.”
