AFP Records Robocalls Against Failed Candidate Mitt Romney

American Freedom Party records robocalls for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, NBC News has learned.

William Johnson, head of the American Freedom Party, which promotes white nationalism, tells NBC News the he has prepared a robocall for Utah residents that will attack Mitt Romney, who delivered a blistering critique of Presidential candidate Donald Trump Thursday.

The calls may go out as soon as 8 p.m. EST Johnson said. The group has targeted voters in Iowa and New Hampshire and more recently in Minnesota and Vermont, states that voted on Super Tuesday. In addition to Utah, Johnson plans a robocall for Idaho voters and possibly other states.

Johnson provided a transcript of the call to NBC News:

Romney“The American National Super PAC makes this call in support of Donald Trump. My name is William Johnson. I am a farmer and a white nationalist.

“This robocall goes out to all millennials and others who are honest in all their dealings. Mitt Romney has viciously attacked Donald Trump.

“Mitt Romney and his establishment conservatives are both mean spirited and dishonest. The white race is being replaced by other peoples in America and in all white countries. Donald Trump stands strong as a nationalist. Mitt Romney and his establishment conservatives pretend they don’t care.

“Mitt Romney and his mean-spirited, establishment conservatives protect big moneyed interests where captains of industry reap billions in profits while the working man struggles to make ends meet in a rented apartment. Donald Trump is a populist. He cares about the working man.

“Vote Trump. Telephone: (213) 718-3908.

William Johnson, head of the American Freedom Party, which promotes white nationalism, tells NBC News the he has prepared a robocall for Utah residents that will attack Mitt Romney, who delivered a blistering critique of Presidential candidate Donald Trump Thursday:

  • On his businesses: “His bankruptcies have crushed small businesses and the men and women who worked for them. He inherited his business, he didn’t create it. And what ever happened to Trump Airlines? How about Trump University? And then there’s Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks, and Trump Mortgage? A business genius he is not.”
  • On foreign policy: “Donald Trump tells us that he is very, very smart. I’m afraid that when it comes to foreign policy he is very, very not smart.”
  • On his character: “Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark: He claimed that he had spoken clearly and boldly against going into Iraq. Wrong, he spoke in favor of invading Iraq. He said he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11. Wrong, he saw no such thing. He imagined it. His is not the temperament of a stable, thoughtful leader.”
  • On his wealth: “I predict that there are more bombshells in his tax returns. I predict that he doesn’t give much if anything to the disabled and to our veterans. … And I predict that despite his promise to do so, first made over a year ago, he will never ever release his tax returns. Never. Not the returns under audit, not even the returns that are no longer being audited. He has too much to hide.”
  • On his morality: “Mr. Trump is directing our anger for less than noble purposes. He creates scapegoats of Muslims and Mexican immigrants, he calls for the use of torture and for killing the innocent children and family members of terrorists. He cheers assaults on protesters. He applauds the prospect of twisting the Constitution to limit first amendment freedom of the press. This is the very brand of anger that has led other nations into the abyss.”
  • And then there was this: “Donald Trump says he admires Vladimir Putin, while has called George W. Bush a liar. That is a twisted example of evil trumping good.”

    Businesses all over the country go bankrupt every day if what they are offering the public the public don’t want so the constant unwarranted attacks on Mr. Trump are uncalled for and malicious. None of the politicians liked Reagan either simply because he wasn’t one them. The public is sick and tired of “them”. They have done nothing for decades except line their own pockets while the public lost jobs, homes and everything else namely because of the decisions these politicians have made over the years.
    I know one thing we need term limits to limit the power these politicians build up by staying in office for decades and getting richer and richer by insider trading and having their palms greased by lobbyists.
    Another thing how about giving the public access to the same Medical insurance they have instead of sticking the public with Obama Care???
    And another thing please take a look at this article on Judicial Watch: Homeland Security Records Reveal Officials Ordered Terrorist Watch List Scrubbed. Its 4 pages and a must read for anyone that wonders just what the hell is wrong with our government? The officials names were redacted so no one could see just who these “officials” are.

    Why is AFP sending out robocalls supposedly supporting Trump when everybody knows or should know that the Establishment and the Opposition are trying to paint Trump as a KKKer and racist bigot?! What possible “good” could this do for Trump? Is this just another attempt to smear Trump as a racist?

    Stop with hoaxes like this! It may be well-meaning but it is NOT helping Donald Trump and is not appreciated by anybody.

      What hoax? As a PAC we are allowed to endorse or oppose any candidate. For example, John Kasich has a super PAC supporting Gov. John Kasich’s presidential bid and he has published ads opposing Trump.

      Be honest, Trump has never been associated with or aligned with the KKK or other race-based groups (including the Congressional Black Caucus). That is dishonest media spin.

      You must think people are mindless automatons who can’t think for themselves. Can’t you recognize smears?

      Romney publicly denounced Trump as a “fraud”. What is wrong with opposing Romney’s diatribe?

      Lie #1 Is this this just another attempt to smear Trump as a ….?
      Lie#2 Stop with hoaxes

      If one is truly tired of liars than one would not be one.

      The American Freedom Party is a proactive movement which means they make things happen, instead of waiting for them to happen. Trump does not need apologists, he deserves activists.
