|Description||Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., suggested without evidence that a billionaire known for promoting progressive causes may have funded the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., during an interview with Vice News published Thursday. |
Gosar said the Charlottesville rally, which led to the death of one counter-protester, could have been "created by the left" and that "George Soros is one of those individuals that helps back these individuals."
The congressman made the comments during an interview focused on a lawsuit against him by a constituent who says Gosar violated her First Amendment rights when he blocked her on Facebook.
Gosar said Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler was an "Obama sympathizer." Kessler confessed to holding liberal allegiances in the past — including voting for Obama and participating in Occupy Wall Street — but he has also expressed strong concerns about immigration and the threat of "white genocide."
Gosar said billionaire investor George Soros "is one of those people that actually helps back these individuals. Who is he? I think he’s from Hungary. I think he was Jewish. And I think he turned in his own people to the Nazis."
