Day by day, many Republicans are increasingly comfortable saying the quiet parts out loud. In a recent incident, one Republican representative has come under fire for forwarding a message to his congressional email list that contained commentary from a right-wing commentator who belittled, stereotyped, and spoke ill of immigrants.
In the email sent by Arizona’s Republican Rep. Paul Gosar, a statement by Stew Peters at Red Voice Media claimed “[d]iversity isn’t America’s strength,” and went on to warn readers that the country will suffer “if America replaces its existing population with foreigners who are more violent or less capable.”
According to Media Matters, Gosar forwarded the email to his list on Jan. 6 from his House of Representative’s office. In addition, Gosar has also been using his list to promote a white nationalist website that warns that Haitians are purportedly “coming here to invade our country.”
The website, called Daily Veracity, also posts antisemitic content; recently, it featured a list of “Jews at the top in media.” According to Media Matters, the full email reads:
America is real. It’s not some melting pot or just some arbitrary borders with a random collection of world travelers just dumped into it. America is a real nation with a real historic identity, founding principles, philosophies, values, aesthetics.
Demographics are destiny. Human beings are different from each other, and it doesn’t help anyone to lie about it and pretend that everything is a social construct.
If America replaces its existing population with foreigners who are more violent or less capable, then this country will suffer. I don’t know why that’s so hard for people to grasp. It’s really quite simple.
America has a cultural identity that’s legitimate and worthy of defending. Diversity isn’t America’s strength, and if managed incorrectly, it can actually be its crippling weakness. America’s strength is its bedrock: the American people. And these people deserve to be protected from a globalist elite that hates them and wants them humiliated or destroyed and replaced or dead.
This isn’t the first time Gosar has said tried to spread a racist agenda or promoted white nationalism and extremist content. As The Washington Post reports and you may recall, the Republican representative was censured and stripped of his committee assignments in November after sharing an animated video of himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
