South Carolina White Nationalist Roan Garcia-Quintana

White Nationalist Scheduled to Speak at South Carolina Tea Party Coalition 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.

Thom Tillis has moved on to the US Senate, leaving NC Senate leader Phil Berger in charge of the Tea Party legislative agenda for 2015.

2014 Election Entrenches Tea Party Support in the North Carolina General Assembly


While much of the national attention focused on Tuesday’s election of former North Carolina Speaker of the House, Thom Tillis, to the United State Senate, scant attention has been paid to the composition of the General Assembly that Tillis used to lead.

Post-election, it appears that Tea Party support has become entrenched in the North Carolina General Assembly. Nearly all of the legislators who were supportive of the Tea Party will be returning to Jones Street in January.
