Garcia, a frequent campaign stand-in, has also been a frequent critic of coronavirus prevention measures. She has claimed that she cannot wear a mask because she has “a breathing problem.”
She declares that she’s running on a three-part platform: faith, family, and freedom. And she says that it’s such a winning message that she has, in fact, already won despite opposition from “the establishment and the RNC itself.”
“I have conquered it already. It is mine. I am claiming the victory,” Garcia says in a clip highlighted by Right Wing Watch.
Enrique Tarrio, the head of the Proud Boys, was the Florida state director of Latinos for Trump. While other group members have been arrested for storming the Capitol building, Tarrio was arrested before the rally. He reportedly was an informant for federal and local law enforcement. The group has a history of anti-LGBTQ violence despite proclaiming themselves otherwise.
In 2019, members of the group were arraigned in connection with an assault that left one man injured after he was called an anti-gay slur.
