Utah residents are being bombarded by anti-Romney robocalls from a locally well known white supremacist who has become irate following the former Massachusetts governor’s attacks on GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
As first reported by KUTV, the caller identifies himself as William Johnson, a white supremacist advocating for Trump on behalf of the American Freedom Party and American National Super Pac. Their central mission is to address the concerns of European-Americans, and to “stop the war on white people.”
Countless Utah residents confirmed receiving the call, which said in part:
“Mitt Romney has viciously attacked Donald Trump. Mitt Romney and his establishment conservatives are both mean spirited and dishonest. The white race is being replaced by other peoples in America and in all white countries. Donald Trump stands strong as a nationalist.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit who tracks the locations, movements, and patterns of hate-based groups nationwide, classifies the American Freedom Party as a white supremacist organization in Southern California.
On the party’s website, Johnson claims to have a bachelor’s degree in Japanese from BYU and to be a practicing corporate lawyer in Los Angeles, along with being the party’s official spokesperson.
As previously reported, several other white supremacist group have made robocalls to express their strong support for Trump, and previous calls from the American National Super Pac have been heard in Minnesota, Iowa, and Vermont.
