White Supremacist SuperPAC floods “every Wisconsin landline” with robocalls supporting Donald Trump

William Johnson, the leader of a self-proclaimed “white nationalist” group is sponsoring robocalls claiming to flood “every Wisconsin landline” urging voters to support Donald Trump ahead of the State’s Republican primary Tuesday, continuing a disturbing trend of public support and funding from white supremacists/neo-Nazis that began with the Iowa caucuses.

According to the  Journal Sentinel,  Johnson spent $6,000 to call every Wisconsin landline with a recorded massage, which begins with an older woman saying that “Trump will be a fine president,” promises that he “will respect all women and help preserve western civilization,” and then concludes by describing Johnson as a “farmer and a white nationalist,” mentioning his American Freedom Party and the American National super PAC.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard from Johnson on the campaign trail; ahead of Utah’s primary in March he funded nonstop robocalls throughout the state urging people to vote for Trump and “stop the war on white people.”

Ted Cruz went onto win Utah with nearly 70% of the vote.

Explaining further to the Sentinel, Johnson said he specifically felt it was important to include the words “white nationalist” in the call, speculating that the narrator’s “sweet grandmotherly voice” would make the message less controversial.

“I want people to hear, to feel comfortable with, the term ‘white nationalist,’” Johnson said.
