DeSantis Staffer and Trump Delegate Was Active Member of Racist Facebook Group

By on September 4, 2018.

A member of Rep. Ron DeSantis’s campaign shared racist and anti-Islamic posts on Facebook and was a member of a vitriolic conservative group that DeSantis joined earlier this year while running for the GOP nomination for Florida governor. He compared students advocating for gun control after Florida school shooting to “Jews that gave up their firearms to Hitler” and then “led into gas chambers.” In the group, called Tea Party, he called Muslims "animals." Accusations of racial insensitivity have dogged DeSantis since almost immediately after he won the primary on Aug. 28 on the back of a Trump endorsement.
