Trump's White Supremacist Dinner Companion Put on No-Fly List
Nick Fuentes, a white supremacist who infamously dined with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago last year along with Kanye West to discuss their mutual hatred of Jews, other grievances, and West’s intention to run for President in 2024, is claiming he has been placed on the U.S. government's No Fly List as an act of political persecution.
However, The Daily Beast is reporting a different reason after the news organization obtained documents from the Transport Security Administration (TSA). It appears that Fuentes threatened to strangle a flight attendant who asked him to comply with the airline's face mask rules.
In fact, court documents filed by the TSA cite Fuentes' own boasts about threatening the flight attendant on his podcast as corroboration for their employees' claims about his threats. According to the papers filed by the TSA, Fuentes, an adoring admirer of Adolph Hitler, bragged on his podcast that he told the flight attendant…
"Let me tell you: I’m gonna land, and then I’m gonna get in the airport parking lot, and I’m gonna wait for you, and then I’m gonna put a mask over your face, your mouth and nose. You still need to be wearing the mask even if you can’t breathe."
Fuentes then added that he was merely "kidding," the flight attendant didn't take kindly to his threats and lodged a formal complaint about him that got him put on the No Fly List.
A fringe figure in right-wing politics for years, Fuentes rose to national prominence late last year when the Hitler-praising rapper Kanye West brought him as a guest to dine with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Ye seemed to have no awareness of Fuentes’s notorious anti-black rhetoric.
