Fox News Contributor To Speak At SC QAnon Event

Media Matters reports:

Thomas Homan, a Fox News contributor and former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director, is scheduled to speak at a conference this week that will feature QAnon conspiracy theorists Michael Flynn and Lin Wood, who both have a history of endorsing political violence.

South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis Loftis (R) is also set to speak at the event. The United Patriots Alliance will host Rock the Red 2021 on June 4 and 5 at Embassy Suites by Hilton in Greeneville, South Carolina. General admission tickets are $167 and adult VIP tickets are $347.

The Daily Beast reports on the organizer:

Pressley Stutts posted numerous photos of the Jan. 6 rally and subsequent riot, including selfies with Infowars host Alex Jones and rally organizer Ali Alexander. One early post from the day, with a photo of the mob clamoring up the inauguration stand on the Capitol’s West Front, had the cheer-leading message “Trump supporters breach the Capitol!”

However, Stutts later embraced the conspiracy theory that it was “antifa,” not Trump supporters, who were responsible for the violence—even comparing it to Kristallnacht, a night of coordinated violence carried out in Germany by Nazi paramilitary squads against Jews in 1938.

Trump hired Homan as “border czar” after first seeing him on Fox News. Homan later revealed that Trump had suggested building a literal alligator-filled moat at the Mexican border.
