Our good friends at the SPLC and ADL, who find racist bogeymen around every corner, are now after Roan Garcia-Quintana, who, like George Zimmerman, is a ‘white hispanic’. As reported by the smarmy & zealous lib Tommy Christopher:
Oh, Republican governors! When they’re not losing track of the one Latina they hired, they’re digging up a Latino white supremacist to serve on their reelection committees. Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) has come under fire this week after the Southern Poverty Law Center noticed that one member of her “Grassroots Steering Committee,” Roan Garcia-Quintana, is a board member of the Council of Conservative Citizens, which SPLC calls a “white nationalist hate group.”
MSNBC’s Rev. Al Sharpton reported on Gov. Hayley’s pal on last night’s PoliticsNation, citing the SPLC, which, when convenient, conservatives like to label as partisan. However, even the Anti-Defamation League calls the CofCC a “white supremacist” organization, and reported on Garcia-Quintana’s membership last month.
Roan Garcia-Quintana, a director of the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC), is closely tied to anti-immigrant organizations in the United States. Garcia-Quintana is a well-known leader in the CofCC, a group descended from the White Citizens Councils, which opposed desegregation of schools during the Civil Rights era.
He is a frequent speaker at CofCC regional events and national conferences. The CofCC has called mixed-race marriage “the mongrelization of the races” and is openly hostile to immigration. The CofCC statement of principles says, “We therefore oppose the massive immigration of non-European and non-Western peoples into the United States that threatens to transform our nation into a non-European majority in our lifetime.”…
Garcia-Quintana also told the Post and Courier that he doesn’t pay attention to the SPLC, and denied he is a racist. “If I were a racist, I don’t think I would be supporting somebody like Nikki Haley who appointed a black man (Tim Scott) to the U.S. Senate,” he told Behre.
The smarmy Tommy Christopher actually refers to Quintana as a “Cuban-American White Supremacist”.
You can’t make this stuff up.
