As the third part of our investigation into the troublesome line-up at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition convention, IREHR examines a Tea Party activist who has traveled the country teaching a curriculum that refers to African-American children as “pickaninnies,” claims that the treatment of slaves was “humane,” and that “the economic system of slavery chained the slave owners almost as much as the slaves.”

Another Troubling Figure Scheduled to Speak at South Carolina Tea Party Convention

01.14.2015

In December, IREHR sounded the alarm when we found that a white nationalist was scheduled to share the stage with members of Congress at the upcoming South Carolina Tea Party Coalition convention. Quietly, without comment or apology, the group scrubbed the white nationalist from their convention schedule.

Despite the removal of one white nationalist, the newly published convention agenda still contains a sizable cast of racists and bigots scheduled to share the stage with members of Congress and aspiring presidential candidates. Given who the organizers have invited to speak, this event has the potential to become even more racially explosive than last year’s tumultuous CPAC convention.

A South Carolina white nationalist leader is scheduled to appear alongside Tea Party leaders, members of Congress, and prospective presidential candidates at a Tea Party convention in January, according to new research by the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights (IREHR).

Roan Garcia-Quintana, a national board member of the white nationalist Council of Conservative Citizens, is scheduled to speak at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention on January 17-19 in Myrtle Beach. In fact, Garcia-Quintana is listed first on the convention’s “Speaker Bios” page, above many more well-known presenters.
