GOP officials team up with neo-Nazis for anti-refugee events

I thought the Republican Party couldn't stoop any lower, but just in the past couple weeks, they have.

Republican leaders in Pennsylvania are teaming up with outright neo-Nazis to organize rallies against Syrian refugees. Leading GOP activists Mary Ann Benitez and John Rentschler - along with the Tea Party - are joining forces with the neo-Nazi group Keystone United to put together the protests.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls Keystone United a "racist skinhead extremist group." Its members have been in trouble for a long series of crimes, including murder, racketeering, and vandalizing a Vietnam War memorial.

Two anti-refugee rallies in Pennsylvania were attended by Republican leaders, the Tea Party, and Keystone United. During a rally at the State Capitol, Rentschler gave a speech where he was backed by Keystone United's Ian McCorts. A highway overpass rally in Scranton was organized by Keystone United members and joined by local Republican committee members and leaders. One GOP committee member, Steve Smith, was busted for ethnic intimidation and assault in the early 2000s. Smith is closely allied with the Tea Party, which has joined protests with him many times before. He is also a former Aryan Nations member.

Such is the current state of the party The Media wants running the country.
