President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has accepted donations from a well-known neo-Nazi leader, so far taking over $2,000 from Morris Gulett, a convicted felon who operates his organization under the name Aryan Nations/Church of Jesus Christ Christian, in Louisiana, according to a report from Judd Legum in Popular Information:
“A cache of Gulett’s website from 2016 promoted white Anglo-Saxons as ‘the supreme ruling race.’ (The website is currently offline.)
‘We believe that the White, Anglo-Saxon, Germanic and kindred peoples are the direct descendants of the Adamic man made in the image of YHVH (Genesis 1:27), and were placed here to be the light bearers and supreme ruling race (Deuteronomy 7:6; Deuteronomy 28:10) of this lost and dying world.'”
Gulett has also said he will only celebrate Black History Month “when every Negro becomes just that – history.”
Here’s a breakdown of contributions from Gulett to the Trump reelection campaign:
Federal contribution reports also reveal that Gulett has given at least $626 to the Republican National Committee.
The Trump campaign is fully aware of the contributions from Gulett and hasn’t returned a dime of his money:
“Gulett’s contributions were brought to the attention of the Trump campaign in July 2018 by The Forward. At the time, Gulett had donated to the Trump campaign three times for a total of $200. The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment from The Forward.
“The Trump campaign also did not respond to a request for comment by Popular Information about Gulett’s continued donations.”
And Gulet’s contributions aren’t the only connections between the president’s campaign and extremist leaders. Other groups have also donated cash to help reelect Trump:
“The Trump campaign has also accepted the maximum donation from Peter Zieve, a Washington State businessman. Zieve was sued by Washington State for discriminating against minority applicants and imposing his racist views on his employees.”
“In 2020, Trump accepted $5600 from Zieve — the legal maximum — to support his primary and general election campaigns. The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment.”
As if that isn’t bad enough, Trump’s campaign has also gladly taken money from K.C. McAlpin, who is a long-time associate of John Tanton, who has been called the “the racist architect of the modern anti-immigrant movement.” Tanton has written that “I’ve come to the point of view that for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.”
McAlpin defended Tanton’s remarks, asserting that that they were not “about race” but “the preservation of European culture and traditions.” McAlpin argues that “Tanton was right about that concern.”
None of this should surprise anyone in the least. After all, this is the very same Donald Trump who claimed there were “very fine people” among the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, carrying torches and chanting, “Jews will not replace us.”
As the old saying reminds us: Birds of a feather flock together.
