President Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign rally in Cincinnati tonight and in the audience will be Ohio-based Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire, who revealed on his “Pass The Salt Live” program this morning that he was able to score VIP tickets to the event.
Daubenmire is a deeply bigoted, anti-Semitic, anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ, right-wing conspiracy theorist who recently made news as part of a fringe effort to pressure authorities in Chappaqua, New York to arrest Hillary Clinton, against whom he claims the Holy Spirit has issued an indictment so that she will be sent to, where she will be taught to fear God.
Daubenmire is the sort of belligerent activist who proudly declares that women become lesbians because they are so ugly that no man could ever love them, asserts that Barack Obama was “a quasi-Muslim freak” and “an emissary from Hell,” warns that Oprah Winfrey was planning to run for president in order to carry out a white genocide, complains that he is not allowed to say the “N-word,” gripes that the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a “psy op” intended to promote “the blending of the races,” and calls interracial marriage “spiritual AIDS.”
Daubenmire has defended Roy Moore, the Westboro Baptist Church, and the “patriots” who marched at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. He has also declared that only evangelical Christians should be allowed to serve on the Supreme Court, proclaimed that a women can never be president “because women are not to have authority over men,” lamented that the North won the Civil War, and called for the embrace of a “more violent Christianity.”
