Ron DeSantis spoke at events hosted by White Race War Theorist

DeSantis has spoken at least four times at conferences organized by the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC), according to The Washington Post. The center’s namesake, David Horowitz, has previously asserted that black people owe their freedom to white people and that the “real race war” in the U.S. is against white people.

Horowitz also referred to former President Barack Obama as an “anti-American radical” who he accused of being “a pretend Christian in the same way he’s a pretend American,” in an August 2014 interview on Today’s Issues. “I’m actually sure he’s a Muslim,” Horowitz said at the time, accusing the former president of driving an agenda “to defeat America.”
