Greene, Gosar, and Gohmert Among GOP Starting New White Nationalist Caucus

A new ‘America First Caucus’ in Congress created by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) and Paul Gosar (Q-AZ) has been distributing materials calling for a ‘common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions’ and a ‘return to the architectural style that befits the progeny of European architecture.’ Reps. Barry Moore (Q-AL) and Louie Gohmert (Q-TX) have also agreed to join the group. Punchbowl News reported about the whites-only caucus on Friday, citing an email invitation it obtained.

Punchbowl shared the email, focusing on the invite’s blatant virtue signaling to the white nationalist extremists who have boldly emerged to give themselves a more public presence in the years since Donald Trump first took office.

WASHINGTON, DC – MARCH 17: Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) speaks during a news conference with members of the House Freedom Caucus about immigration on the U.S.-Mexico border outside the U.S. Capitol on March 17, 2021 in Washington, DC.

One section reads: “America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions. History has shown that societal trust and political unity are threatened when foreign citizens are imported en-masse into a country, particularly without institutional support for assimilation and an expansive welfare state to bail them out should they fail to contribute positively to the country.”

Punchbowl’s Jake Sherman also shared a link to the full document. It opens with what they deem their “America First Caucus Policy Platform”.

The America First Caucus (AFC) exists to promote Congressional
policies that are to the long-term benefit of the American nation. The
North Star of any policy proposal will be that which serves the
American people, and any consequential analysis of policy platforms
must be based on this first principle.

As this implies a degree of ideological flexibility, a certain intellectual
boldness is needed amongst members of the AFC to follow in
President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and
sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation. Policy
areas as far ranging as foreign intervention, economic development,
immigration, trade, tech regulation and social policy need to be
re-examined from the ground up to ensure that what remains keeps
the interest of Americans at heart.

It is the firm belief of this Caucus that American policy-making needs
to get back to first principles, restore a long-term time horizon
amongst our nation’s leaders, and instill a greatly internalized sense of
service to the American people on part of our elected leaders. As long
as these principles are put and kept in practice, the interests of the
American people will be safeguarded.

Twitter users were quick to jump on the new caucus members for their overt display of White Nationalism while in their official government capacities.
