Incoming House GOP Whip Steven Scalise (R) says it’s “ludicrous” to think he was involved with white nationalists. And along those lines, I confess, I bet it was a pretty awkward moment when Scalise was giving his speech at that convention and started talking about the civil rights challenges facing the country. In fairness, who would assume that a group called the National Organization for European-American Rights might be a race thing? I continue to think this is the most trenchant piece of analysis on the on-going issue of right-wing Republicans accidentally speaking to white nationalist organizations.
