There are several things I’d like to share with you in this post. This is going to be a long one, but I think you will find what I have to say is central to the battle for the soul of the America First agenda.
The first thing I want to share with you is the media release that I sent out two days ago:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 12, 2018
Statement of Paul Nehlen on Unlawful Election Interference
by Twitter, the Anti-Defamation League,
and Foreign Persons and Entities
Yesterday, Twitter banned me from its platform. I am the second GOP congressional candidate within one month to be banned for lawful speech from a major social media platform, which a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court recently acknowledged to be the new de facto public square.
This is the epitome of interfering with a federal election. Twitter is largely foreign-owned, and has partnered with the ADL — a pro-censorship extremist organization — to suppress right-wing political speech. In addition, we have reason to believe that, because of the content of one of my recent controversial tweets, the British government may also be involved in this unlawful election interference, by demanding Twitter suspend my account pursuant to its Orwellian “hate speech” laws. We will be filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in the coming days, alleging violations by the aforementioned parties of federal election laws and regulations.
These are unprecedented, brazen acts of censorship by a corporate monopoly that controls a primary channel of public communication. It has severely compromised the integrity of our election processes, and Congress needs to hold public hearings and conduct a full investigation into these matters without delay. This communist-style speech control absolutely cannot be tolerated in an open and democratic society.
The second thing I’d like you to read through is the line of questioning sent over by the “Wisconsin media” and how they handled my statements:
Reporter, Wisconsin State Journal
State Ethics Commission records show Paul Nehlen paid $25 in September to the Racine County Republican Party for what was reported to the commission as “membership.”
However, the Republican Party of Wisconsin today provided me the following statement: “Paul Nehlen is not a member of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. Nehlen and his ideas have no place in the Republican Party.”
Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said of Nehlen Tuesday that “it looks to me like he’s a racist bigot.”
“I don’t want him as part of my party,” Vos said.
How does Paul Nehlen respond to those comments?
Is he currently a member of the Racine County GOP or any other county party in Wisconsin? If he hasn’t already done so, does he plan to pay his 2018 membership dues to the Racine County GOP or any other county party in Wisconsin?
Also, does Paul Nehlen consider himself a white nationalist and/or a white supremacist and/or an anti-Semite, as his critics have described him?
My Statement is as follows:
I am a Republican Congressional candidate, and have paid my dues to the Republican Party of Wisconsin. Therefore, I am a member of the Republican Party regardless of what their traitorous, spineless apparatchiks believe. Not only does my America First agenda have a place in the Republican Party, it ought to be the centerpiece of the Republican Party. I will not be lectured to on conservative values by self-righteous prigs who have managed to conserve nothing.
As for the comments of Robin “Toll Roads” Vos, it is sad and pathetic that his attacks are indistinguishable from the tired tactics used by the left. The Republican Party of Wisconsin is not Vos’ personal cartel. I am a member of the following county parties in Wisconsin:
Rock since 2016,
Walworth since 2016,
Racine since 2016,
Milwaukee since 2016,
Waukesha since 2016,
Kenosha since 2016.
Finally, my political views are America First, and are shared by the Founding Father’s of our great Nation. Not being a philosemite does not make one an antisemite; my dishonest “critics” are unable to comprehend this reality. Jews, just like every other group, are not immune from criticism.

Hello Mr. Nehlen,
Today Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and RPW said you were a racist. RPW says county GOP officials will be returning your past dues or donating them to charity and that you are no longer a member of the GOP. Any comment? Thanks, J
Here’s my statement:
I am a Republican Congressional candidate, and have paid my dues to the Republican Party of Wisconsin. Therefore, I am a member of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, regardless of what their traitorous,
spineless apparatchiks wish to believe. What they choose to do with my (already accepted) membership dues will not change this fact, so I would suggest that they cut out their petty behavior right now.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin is not Scott Walker and Robin Vos’ personal cartel, and I will not be lectured to on conservative values by self-righteous prigs who have managed to conserve nothing. As for their calling me a “racist,” I will not dignify with a response the same cliché, Marxist tactics used by the left. If they want to talk and behave just like Democrats, then perhaps the Democratic Party is better suited to them.
I’m writing to see if Paul has any reaction to the Wisconsin Republican Party, Paul Ryan, Robin Vos and Scott Walker all today denouncing him and saying that he doesn’t represent the Republican Party. As I’m sure you’ve seen, the state party is saying any dues he paid to three county parties has been donated or returned to Nehlen and he is not a part of the state Republican Party. Vos today called Paul a “racist bigot.”
So, I’m interested in any reaction he’s got.
Here’s my statement:
First of all, only Republicans are foolish and spineless enough to “denounce” their own in order to curry favor with the leftist media (which has never worked and will never work, anyway).
Not only does my America First agenda represent the Republican Party (at least if the Party wishes to have any sustainable future), it also represents the true feelings of the Republican base, notwithstanding certain out-of-touch GOP elites constantly trying to browbeat and shame them as “racist bigots” simply for wanting to put America First. We will not be lectured to on conservative values by self-righteous prigs who have conserved nothing and are basically just liberals on a 5 year time-delay.
With regard to the Republican Party of Wisconsin: I am a Republican Congressional candidate, and have paid my dues to the Republican Party of Wisconsin. I am therefore a member of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, regardless of what their traitorous,
sleazy apparatchiks wish to believe. What they choose to do with my (already accepted) membership dues will not change this fact, so I would suggest that they cut out their petty behavior right now. The Republican Party of Wisconsin is not Paul Ryan, Scott Walker, and Robin Vos’ personal cartel.
Not one of the reporters I provided quotes to utilized them. In fact, Scott Bauer of the AP used only 13 words out of the short 203 word statement I provided him. President Trump is right, #FakeNews!
The news media is sick!
The attacks on me keep coming, but I refuse to back down. Help me take the fight directly to defeat Paul Ryan in spite of those who circle the wagons around him.
I didn’t leave the GOP.
We didn’t leave the GOP.
The GOP left us.
We can do this together. I need your support. You haven’t backed down and neither will I.

Nehlen challenged Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 2016 First Congressional District to stop Trans-Pacific Partnership and secure America’s border. He is waging the battle for Wisconsin’s workers, against the refugee resettlement racket, and lends his voice to the battle for America’s values.
