A young Donald Trump supporter spoke about her enthusiasm for the Republican front-runner in a recent news story while showing off her white supremacist tattoos.
Grace Tilly and her family, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, were featured on an episode of PBS Newshour that aired Tuesday night, working the phones to turn out voters for Trump in their state. More after the cut…
The segment showed Grace hard at work but, as Gawker was the first to report, the show made no mention about the young woman having tattoos of Odin’s Cross and the number ’88’ on her hands. These are both white power tattoos, with ’88’ a numerical code for ‘Heil Hitler.’
On the show it is revealed that Grace is a first time voter, and has been looking for work for six months.
Her husband Farron talks about racism briefly, saying; ‘I hate everybody the same, so I’ll never be racist. ‘All these protesters, and all this stuff, and people saying he’s racist and the Black Lives Matter, you know what? Red lives matter, because we all bleed red.’
Farron, who works in the marble and granite business, is also having difficulty getting work, a problem he believes is the result of immigrants moving into the area.
‘There’s all kinds of other people out there, working with the bare minimum tools, doing the job for a quarter of what we used to charge,’ he said during the program.
Trump won a majority of the states holding nominating contests on Tuesday, accelerating his march to the Republican nomination. He has promised, if elected, to build a wall on the Mexican border, temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States and block Syrian refugees because they might be militants – all policies popular with some US right-wing groups.
Republican leaders in the Congress condemned white supremacist groups earlier this month after Trump failed to disavow support for former Klan leader David Duke. Trump later disavowed the leader during a debate that same week.
