Wisconsin Lawmakers Spotted at Far-Right Rally by Gays Against Groomers

Author: Christopher Wiggins

Three Republican Wisconsin state legislators attended a rally held by right-wing extremists on Saturday. Reps. John Macco, Nate Gustafson, and Joy Goeben were present at a far-right demonstration organized by Gays Against Groomers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

On October 13, a Brown County Circuit Court commissioner granted the Pulaski School District’s request for a four-year restraining order against Wisconsin’s chapter leader of Gays Against Groomers, Rodriguez. This legal maneuver followed Rodriguez’s confrontation with the district in September when he posted a threatening video on TikTok against a staff member, the district, and the school board. Though Rodriguez later downplayed his statements as “internet lingo” in an interview, the district saw them as attempts to incite intimidation.

Jaimee Michell, known for her earlier support for former President Donald Trump, has recently aligned with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, causing a significant rift within Gays Against Groomers and leading to the resignation of co-founder David Leatherwood. The split occurred following a homophobic video posted by DeSantis, which didn’t affect Michell’s support for the governor.

Further controversy arose when Gays Against Groomers was temporarily suspended from Instagram on Wednesday, only to be reinstated later without an explanation from Meta, Instagram’s parent company. Amid these developments, the association of political figures with extremist groups, like the attendance of state representatives at the far-right rally, casts a spotlight on the broader political endorsement of such ideologies, particularly in light of contentious legislative proposals like AB 465.
