Nigel Farage is set to appear with Charlie Kirk founder of Turning Point USA (TPUSA) at a fundraising dinner to raise money for the British offshoot Turning Point UK on June 20th
Turning Point UK have links with the far right including:
• Turning Point UK’s launch was attended by alt-right social media personality Paul Joseph Watson, editor-at-large of conspiracy website InfoWars, whose anti-Islam and antisemitic writing was cited by prosecutors as an inspiration for the Finsbury Park Mosque attack.
• Turning Point USA has donors including the Lyne and Harry Bradley Foundation and the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, who also fund anti-Muslim hate groups such as the David Horowitz Freedom Centre and the Middle East Forum. Middle East Forum help fund fascist Tommy Robinson.
• The Southern Poverty Law Centre’s “Hatewatch” has documented Turning Point USA’s links to white supremacists.
• Kirk’s organization has maintained a “Professor Watch-list”, which targets academics that it alleges discriminate against conservative students and advance left-wing propaganda in the classroom.
Nigel Farage has a long history of Islamophobia and scapegoating refugees and migrants. His association with Turning Point UK with its attacks on “cultural Marxism” the women’s and LGBT+ rights shows that Farage in his role as leader of the new Brexit Party hasn’t changed.
