Rep. Paul Gosar’s longstanding ties to white nationalists, the pro-Nazi blogger and the far-right fringe went unchallenged for years
Gosar’s ties to extremists go back further than the violent social media posts for which he was censored. He has long associations with white nationalists, a pro-Nazi blogger and far-right fringe actors who have received little scrutiny compared to his colleagues, according to CNN KFile’s in-depth review of the Gosar events and publications. on social media over the years.
A spokesperson for Gosar declined to comment on specific questions about the congressman’s associates and instead issued a statement disparaging CNN’s reporting.
Jared Holt, a member of the Atlantic Council and an expert on domestic extremism, told CNN that politicians like Gosar and Greene speaking out and associating with these figures and groups gave these ideas new credibility and legitimacy.
