Latinos For Trump Event Venue Antifa

Latinos for Trump planned to hold an educational leadership and activism conference in Woodlands, Texas this weekend, and lost their event venue after local Antifa groups labelled the Hispanic supporters of President Donald Trump as racist and the local media piled on.

The group of Hispanic Trump supporters explained to Big League Politics that they have been labelled as white supremacists who are engaged in the next red scare by the local media, and harassed by local Antifa groups.

According to Bianca Gracia, vice president of Latinos for Trump, Antifa began calling the event venue’s insurance company and complaining that violent white supremacists would be using the facility, likely resulting in violence that the insurance company would have to cover. At the same time, Houston Press released an article lambasting Latinos for Trump, and the pro-America Texans United For America group, quoting a known member of Antifa who lost his job as a professor for being too radical.

This led the insurance company to renege on its contract with Latinos for Trump, leaving the group scrambling to inform attendees of a new, undisclosed location for its leadership training, forum on human trafficking, firearm training, and social media activism seminars.

Houston Press repeatedly quoted Dr. David Michael Smith, of Houston United Front Against Fascism, in its article. Speaking to Big League Politics, Gracia and her counterpart Jen Loh, the Texas State Director of Latinos for Trump and the president and co-founder of Texans United For Amerca, explained that Smith has repeatedly made ominous Facebook posts and that his activists have previously attended Texans United For America events armed with rifles, at times pointing the guns at other attendees.

On the Houston United Against Fascism Facebook page, run by Smith, he recently asked users to call the organization if they “need help dealing with fascists or other white supremacists”, leading Gracia and Loh to believe this may be an implied threat of violence.

Gracia also explains that the article is entirely inaccurate, as it claims Latinos for Trump and Texans United For America are partnering with a group they have never had contact with, and know nothing about.

Houston Press also claims individuals including Joey Gibson, of the Patriot Prayer group, and several other speakers at the Latinos for Trump conference, are known to associate with white supremacists without providing evidence.

Loh says she was not contacted by Houston Press prior to publication of the article, while Gracia says she was contacted and asked probing questions aimed at making her, a Latina, sound racist.

According to Gracia, Houston Press gave preferential treatment to the Antifa organization that has “doxxed me, threatened my 10-year-old child, and posted pictures of my children’s school” to intimidate her.

Allen West, who serves as a military advisor to Latinos for Trump, wrote on his website that “This is what the progressive socialist left wants. They want complete ideological domination, totalitarian control, actually, no different from what we see happening in China.”

Regardless of the threats and media smears, Gracia says she has already found another venue for the Latinos for Trump event.

“We’re going to move this event somewhere our patriots will be safe,” said Gracia.
