Republican who said diversity is destroying America kicks off campaign with racist congresswoman

Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is launching his campaign for North Carolina governor with the exceptionally racist Rep. Virginia Foxx by his side.

Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest will launch his bid for governor of North Carolina on Saturday with "special guest" Rep. Virginia Foxx, a North Carolina congresswoman with a long history of racist comments. The decision to honor Foxx at his campaign kickoff rally comes on the heels of Forest's own controversial statements on diversity.

In a late June sermon at a Salisbury church, Forest claimed diversity is threatening America, ThinkProgress reported at the time.

"No other nation, my friends, has ever survived the diversity and multiculturalism that America faces today, because of a lack of assimilation, because of this division, and because of this identity politics," Forest said. The Southern Poverty Law Center has noted that such rhetoric about multiculturalism is used by white nationalist hate groups.

Forest was criticized at the time for his comments. Liz Doherty, a spokesperson for the North Carolina Democratic Party, called his comments "deeply troubling."

2. It's not just Trump. It's the entirety of the Republican party.

White nationalism is their new normal.

5. Perhaps it's

a worthwhile endeavor to ask this joker why white people should not be expected to assimilate.
