Some of the most cartoonishly nutty members of the Republican caucus simply want to get famous, rich, or the affections of younger women. Representative Paul Gosar, on the other hand, has a plan. He wants to extend the rightward boundary of the Republican Party coalition and bring it right up to the edge of open Nazism.

Gosar announced last night that he is holding a fundraiser with Nick Fuentes:

There is a tendency on the left to engage in label inflation, collapsing the spectrum of thought on the right by shoving ever greater numbers of conservatives into the "white nationalist" slot. But Fuentes is the genuine article. He is a leader of the "Groypers," a far-right, anti-Semitic group that could best be described as Nazi-adjacent. Fuentes is known for engaging in Holocaust denial, but in a teasing, "ironic" way that provides a razor-thin sheen of deniability.
