There Goes the Neighborhood: July 15, 2016

Imagine2050 Staff • Jul 15, 2016

There Goes the Neighborhood is a weekly series from Imagine 2050 staff highlighting upcoming nativist events.

This week, all eyes are on Cleveland as activists and nativist spokespeople come to town for the Republican National Convention.

Today, July 15, the Cleveland chapter of anti-Muslim grassroots group ACT for America will hold an event in Broadview Heights, Ohio featuring Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.). As Imagine 2050 noted last month, Flynn has been a foreign policy advisor to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. He also sits on ACT for America’s board of directors. Until recently, Flynn’s name was also floated by multiple media outlets as Trump’s pick for vice president.

On Monday, July 18, Trump supporters will hold a “unity rally” in Cleveland, Ohio. The event will be co-hosted by longtime Trump advisor Roger Stone and also feature rabid conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Last week, Media Matters reported that one of the co-sponsors of the event was white nationalist website Eternal Sentry. The website has since dropped its sponsorship.

Finally, on Tuesday, July 19, anti-Muslim activists plan to hold “the most fab party at the RNC” in Cleveland. Featured guests at the event include Geert Wilders, Pamela Geller, Ann Coulter, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

Additional information on these events and others can be found in the map below. The events scheduled for next week are marked with red stars.
