The leaders of a group officially recognized as Nazi collaborators by the U.S. State Department say Trump terrorism adviser Sebastian Gorka is a sworn member of their group.
The elite order, known as the Vitézi Rend, was established as a loyalist group by Admiral Miklos Horthy, who ruled Hungary as a staunch nationalist from 1920 to October 1944. A self-confessed anti-Semite, Horthy imposed restrictive Jewish laws prior to World War II and collaborated with Hitler during the conflict. His cooperation with the Nazi regime included the deportation of hundreds of thousands of Jews into Nazi hands. [...]
Gorka — who Vitézi Rend leaders say took a lifelong oath of loyalty to their group — did not respond to multiple emails sent to his work and personal accounts, asking whether he is a member of the Vitézi Rend and, if so, whether he disclosed this on his immigration application and on his application to be naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 2012.
Buzzfeed News managed to contact Gorka and, when asked if he's literally a Nazi, Gorka told Buzzfeed he should ask the White House press office.
“Send a request to White House press,” Gorka told BuzzFeed News. [...]
Steven Goldstein, executive director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, an independent US organization, linked Gorka’s non-denial of connections to the Vitézi Rend to what Goldstein calls the White House’s “weak reactions” to the recent spike in antisemitic hate crimes.
If someone asks if you're an actual Nazi, you should probably have a better response than this.
In any case, Gorka puts the entire Trump regime into perspective. An administration that loathes and demonizes refugees and immigrants with reckless abandon has a Nazi immigrant on staff who's within throwing distance of the oval office.
I'm calling for a complete and total shutdown of Nazi immigration until we can figure out what the hell is going on. We need extreme vetting.
