Republican Congressman Paul Gosar scheduled for white nationalist event on Hitler’s birthday
Republican Congressman Paul Gosar is scheduled to attend another white nationalist event; this one set for April 20, Hitler’s birthday.
Just the other day Gosar was making the press rounds claiming that his attendance at white nationalist Nick Fuentes’ AFPAC conference was due to a “miscommunication” of some sort, which he credited to his staff. And now a similar event has popped up on his calendar, set to take place on a date that holds special weight for white supremacists.

According to the AZ Mirror, the American Populist Union is aligned with a group of white nationalists known as “groypers” whose main goal is for their ideals to become cemented within the “Republican mainstream” way of thinking. Doyle, the other listed guest at the event, is a known ally of “groypers,” and has promoted their agenda in the past. According to AZ Mirror’s report Doyle has previously organized a “Stop the Steal” rally with Fuentes, has spoken negatively of the life and work of Martin Luther King, and believes that “liberalism is linked to satanism.”
Arizona state Sen. Warren Petersen, R-Gilbert was initially tied to the April 20 event, but has since backed out.
“When they first contacted me, I thought it was a County Young Republican event,” Petersen said in a quote used by AZ Mirror. “After I realized it was an organization I was unfamiliar with, I respectfully declined to speak.”
