Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers is both a member of the Oath Keepers and an adherent to the QAnon conspiracy theory. Naturally, that made her a perfect candidate to speak at Donald Trump’s rally this weekend.
And Rogers didn’t stop making news there. Today, as the rest of the country celebrated the life of Martin Luther King Jr., the Arizona Republican was retweeting a message calling for people to celebrate Confederate Generals.
The message Rogers retweeted came from Scott Greer. The tweet read, “Celebrate Lee-Jackson Day” with a photo of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

Greer has a history of White supremacist leanings. He was let go from the Daily Caller in 2018 after it was revealed that he was writing for the Radix Journal, a publication associated with Richard Spencer.
Rogers is a fan of other white supremacists as well. Back in December, Rogers retweeted two messages from Nicholas Fuentes, a noted Holocaust denier.
In the past hour, Arizona lawmaker Wendy Rogers has tweeted twice about Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes. "We love you," she told him in one tweet. pic.twitter.com/YgAfSchE9k
