Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is set to appear this weekend in Florida as a guest speaker for an America First Rally hosted by the Republican Women of Indian River.
Other guest speakers include Matt Braynard, data strategist for the Trump campaign, Amanda Chase, gubernatorial candidate for Virginia, and several candidates running for U.S. Congress, including Anthony Bouchard who is challenging Liz Cheney for her Wyoming seat.
Reps. Greene and and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) are among those said to be organizing the America First Caucus, which came under fire by the mainstream media and by established Republicans for a document reported on in the Punchbowl, a paid congressional newsletter, said to outline its charter.
The language purportedly used in the document is said to “appear” to be the America First Caucus’ platform , which under the immigration heading says that the caucus aims to preserve “anglo-saxon political traditions,” setting off the racists in media and triggering weak Republicans.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy immediately came out condemning the group in its infancy, tweeting:
America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work. It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion.
The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles.

However, in an email statement to CNN on Saturday afternoon, Greene’s spokesperson, Nick Dyer, said, “The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved,” he said. “She didn’t approve that language and has no plans to launch anything.”
Congressional members and the media immediately began to churn out statements against the proposed caucus, calling it the Klu Klux Caucus and the White Supremacy Caucus.
The media is terrified of white people, nationalist, Trump supporters, or those who believe in America First values, so it would come as no surprise if the document was leaked prematurely to smear the group prior to any official launch.
The rush to label the caucus as racist is just more proof that Greene and company are pushing all the right buttons, including the establishment Republican Party.
The American people have spoken. They don’t want the Grand Ole Party that has betrayed them for decades. They want an America First agenda. They want a fighter.
