Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers, who spoke at last week’s white nationalist America First political action conference, called out white nationalist and Holocaust denier Vincent James Foxx to “stand for election”. Rogers also recently forwarded an article from VDare, a white nationalist website dedicated to warning readers of the supposed dangers of non-whites.
Foxx is a white nationalist streamer and writer. He is also a Holocaust denier who said that “the Holocaust is a weapon” against white people; attacked Jews for supposedly “not only controlling Hollywood, Congress and the media, but they also control social media”; and claimed that the impeachment of former President Donald Trump was “the Jewish coup”.
He recently spoke at AFPAC, where he pushed the white nationalist “great replacement” theory and stated that “Western white culture is the majority culture, which even non-whites assimilate into today in many western countries, and they are better off for it. ” The AZ Right Wing Watch Twitter account Noted Rogers exhortation, which was made on Telegram.
Foxx is based in Idaho and said he had “deep ties” to Idaho Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin (R), who spoke to AFPAC. McGeahin is now running for governor.
Rogers has become a major Republican validator for the white nationalist movement, promoting its efforts while receiving rhetorical and financial support from top Republicans, including Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Trump himself. (Rogers kept lying that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.)
On Feb. 2, Rogers used his Telegram account to deliver a message from VDare.com, which claimed President Joe Biden’s administration had “dispatched the illegals (unlawfully and improperly).” VDare also embedded a video by openly bigoted commentator Laura Loomer supposedly showing how “illegal immigrants are invading central Florida.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center called VDare a white nationalist hate group and wrote that it “regularly publishes articles by prominent white nationalists, race scientists, and anti-Semites.”
VDare offers articles with titles such as: “One problem with these Hispanic immigrants is their disgusting behavior”; “Come back, Stonewall Jackson!” Hispanic gangs invade the Shenandoah Valley”; “Indians are not that smart (on average)”; “America doesn’t need ANY immigrants from Africa”; “Go back, JIHAD – There is also HIJRA, the Muslim conquest by immigration”; “National Data: Haitian Immigrants Are Pretty Useless — But Haiti Needs Them Even More Than We Do”; and “OK, let’s give them reparations – if they go back to Africa”.
Rogers’ promotions of VDare and Foxx are other examples of his love of the white nationalist movement. Last weekend, she spoke remotely at the America First Political Action Conference, a white nationalist rally organized by Holocaust denier and white nationalist Nick Fuentes. During his speech, Rogers said, “I really respect Nick because he’s the most persecuted man in America.” Rogers often praised Fuentes and said she loved him.
Rogers has repeatedly rented Racist supporters of Fuentes, known as “groypers”, notably declared, “I like the Groypers because the Right Wing Watch hates them” and asked the “Groyper army” to help him. Jerod MacDonald-Evoy of the Arizona Mirror recently explained, “The self-proclaimed online ‘army’ that Rogers implored to rally to his aid is a collection of white nationalists who often use online trolling tactics against people they don’t like. Their goals usually include normalizing their extreme and racist views by aligning them with Christianity and so-called “mainstream” values.
She has also appeared several times on TruNews, an anti-Semitic media outlet that warns viewers against “insurgent Jews.” Additionally, Rogers has expressed support for the QAnon violence-related conspiracy theory and is a proud member of the Oath Keepers, a militia with a history of violence.
The Arizona Republican pushed toxic rhetoric, including calling for “more gallows”; praising the Confederacy; and affirming that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “is a globalist puppet for Soros and the Clintons.”
