Gun Owners of America head, Larry Pratt, will be speaking at "Freedompalooza," a Fourth of July event hosted by Paul Topete, who once denied the Holocaust.
Other speakers include Jim Traficant and former congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, reports the American Free Press. Traficant was convicted and did jail time for bribery, reported the Washington Post in 2009.
Topete is part of the rock group Poker Face, which reportedly defended and licensed a song to the right-wing Hutaree militia.
According to the Anti-Defamation League, Topete has made several anti-Semitic statements, including denying the Holocaust:
I am always amazed at how many roads lead back to one of the largest if not THEE largest scam ever played on humanity... Yes that right... the HOLOHAUX aka holocaust. 1985 and 1988 Ernst Zundel [Holocaust denier] DESTROYED the Myth known as the cult of holohauzianity.
In a canadien court of law, Ernst zundel took on the biggest frauds in the SHOAH Industry, and showed them to be the frauds that they were. Names like Raoul Hilberg and Vrba. And several other parasites known to infest this worldly sham. Wake up people, You are being played for fools for you LACK KNOWLEDGE.
Lehigh Valley Music reported in 2010 that Topete's band Poker Face suggested that Israel was behind the 9/11 attacks: “Was Israel involved? It’s not beyond the scope of reasonable doubt.”
Pratt has his own dubious background. He was a contributing editor of the anti-SemiticUnited Sovereigns of America, noted the Southern Poverty Law Center.
According toTime magazine, Pratt was forced to step down as co-chairman of Pat Buchanan's presidential campaign in 1996 amid reports of his association with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Nations and militias.
