Nick Fuentes Crashes CPAC While Singing “America First” & “White Boy Summer”, Gets Kicked Out
White nationalist organizer Nick Fuentes stormed the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, with a crowd of followers on Saturday. Officials quickly removed Fuentes from the event after the group’s organized stunt.
“Should we try to get into CPAC? Fuentes said in a video before entering the building. “It’s America. Well I’m American and I got canceled so I think I’m going on CPAC.”
He then walked through the doors followed by his supporters chanting “America First” and “white boy summer”.
The controversial figure, who had previously described himself as an “American nationalist” and a “paleo-conservative”, was permanently suspended from Twitter on Friday. Fuentes is also banned from YouTube, Twitch, TikTok, Spotify, Venmo, and Reddit.
A Twitter spokesperson said News week that the decision was made due to “repeated violations” of the rules of the platform.
In the hours leading up to his ban from Twitter, Fuentes tweeted his intention to derail the conservative event in Texas. “Most likely, I will be physically removed from CPAC in Dallas on Saturday,” he boasted in one of his latest tweets.
Fuentes has been running its own events competing with CPAC events since 2019 in an attempt to disrupt and embarrass “mainstream” conservatives. In February, Fuentes was denied entry to CPAC in Florida as he attempted to derail the event with a group of around 25 supporters.
Security pulled Fuentes from the Dallas CPAC on Saturday after harassing a reporter from the Show. Before leaving the building, he vowed to “deliver the most raging speech of all time” in front of the event in the evening.
“I’m not on Twitter anymore, I have nothing to lose. This will be the most racist, sexist, anti-Semitic and Holocaust denial of all of Dallas this weekend,” he said, in as a small group of supporters around applauded him.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) accused Fuentes of making “numerous anti-Semitic and racist comments” in a blog post on Thursday. He was also called a “white nationalist organizer” by the Southern Poverty Law Center and called a white supremacist in an FBI file.
In recent years, Fuentes has denied the Holocaust, has spoken out against interracial marriage, opposed immigration and has indicated his support for segregation. In 2017, he attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a young woman was killed by a neo-Nazi. Fuentes later called the event “incredible” on Facebook. He recently sparked new controversy after hailing the Jan.6 riot on Capitol Hill.
News week has contacted the Conservative Union of America, which broadcasts CPAC, for comment. This story will be updated with any response.
