Tell John McCann That Sebastian Gorka Isn't Welcome in Bergen County!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Campaigning has begun in the race to represent NJ-5 in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Republican challenger John McCann has decided to host an event featuring noted anti-Semite, Islamophobe, and former Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka.
Gorka has been facing criticism from inside and outside the administration since the beginning. He started out wearing a pin that represents the Hungarian neo-Nazi organization Vitezi Rend to the inauguration on January 20th. He was unable to obtain security clearance for the National Security Council, and while the reason for that was never specified by the White House, Gorka was charged with a misdemeanor after attempting to carry a 9mm pistol through TSA at Ronald Reagan Airport in 2016. He was also wanted for arrest in Hungary during his time in the White House. Despite marketing himself as an expert on the Middle East, academics, colleagues, and his own Ph.D advisor doubt his knowledge and credentials. He's also the guy who drew a plan to partition Libya into three parts on a paper napkin, to the horror of actual diplomats he discussed the plan with.
We want to show McCann and Gorka that his brand of ignorant, underqualified xenophobia is not welcome in Washington Township, Bergen County, and NJ-5. The event is taking place on March 28th, and while we may not be able to stop Gorka from coming, we can send a message to the to the district, to the town, and to McCann that hosting these ideologies here is unacceptable.
