Gosar playing hooky

News from the white nationalistosphere:

Rep. Paul Gosar spoke Friday night at a Florida event organized by a white nationalist.

To make the appearance at the far-right AFPAC, an extremist alternative to the annual CPAC gathering of conservatives, Gosar, R-Ariz., had to skip voting in person on the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill that passed the House early Saturday. He had notified the House in writing that he couldn’t be physically present in Congress because of the ongoing pandemic.

The ongoing pandemic of dogs eating his homework.

AFPAC stands for the America First Political Action Committee and was put together by Nick Fuentes, an anti-immigration conservative who attended the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville and last year was banned from YouTube for repeatedly violating its rules against hate speech. 

Then the next day he went to CPAC and pretended to disapprove of white nationalism.

ABC News reported that Fuentes, the organizer, spoke after Gosar and told attendees that if the U.S. “loses its white demographic core, then this is not America anymore.” 

I wonder if he realizes that to many of his fellow white nationalists, the name “Fuentes” gets you an automatic expulsion from the “white demographic core.”

In his letter Friday extending his voting by proxy, Gosar said, “I continue to be unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency and I hereby grant the authority to cast my vote by proxy to the Honorable Yvette Herrell of New Mexico, who has agreed to serve as my proxy.”

In other words a manatee ate his homework.

Gosar wasn’t the only Republican to sidestep in-person voting in the House. Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., and Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., were among those who also filed for proxy voting and were scheduled to take part in CPAC events. They, too, cited the ongoing health emergency for their absence in Congress.

Manatees ate their homework! It’s pervasive whitenationalistophobia!
