An announced speaker at the white nationalist-led America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC) II slated for tomorrow in Florida declared on Telegram recently, “In case I haven’t been clear, I am in complete support of the Siege on the Capitol.”[1]

Jon Miller, host of the White House Brief on The BlazeTV, is slated to speak at the February 26 AFPAC II event in Orlando, Florida. Other speakers include white nationalist and “groyper” leader Nick Fuentes; anti-immigrant pundit Michelle Malkin, the self-proclaimed “mommy” to the “groypers;” Vincent James of The Red Elephants; and former U.S. Representative Steve King (R-IA), the latter known for having asked a New York Times reporter, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”[2] Another speaker is schedule to be announced at the event.

Miller’s statement came on January 11 and followed previous Telegram posts endorsing the January 6 nationalist insurrection. Fuentes and an America First contingent were present at the large rally in D.C. on that day. On January 7 Miller declared that “There is no reason to be ashamed of people who righteously stormed the Capitol knowing their country was just stolen from them,” also embracing the false claim that the election was fraudulent.[3]

Fuentes and other “groyper” figures had been active in the Stop the Steal efforts leading up to the D.C. insurrection. Footage of Fuentes declaring his oft-repeated plan to “destroy the GOP” was broadcast in the recent House impeachment hearings.[4]

Also on January 7, Jon Miller declared, “I’m hype (sic). I’m amped rn and I know millions of Americans are in the same state of mind. We are just getting started.”
