Speaker pulled from Republican Convention after tweeting antisemitic conspiracy theory

Mary Ann Mendoza shared a thread claiming the Rothschilds created a plot to terrorise ‘goyim’


A campaigner slated to speak at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night was pulled after sharing a thread which claimed there was a Jewish conspiracy to enslave non-Jews.

Mary Ann Mendoza – who sits on one of the Trump campaign’s advisory boards – told her 40,000 followers on Tuesday morning: “Do yourself a favor and read this thread”.

The thread Ms Mendoza had shared claimed that the Rothschild family had created a plot to terrorise “goyim”, including plans to “make goyim destroy each other” and “rob the goyim of their landed properties.”

The thread also suggested the Rothschilds sunk the Titanic in order to create the Federal Reserve, assassinated President John F Kennedy for financial gain, and claimed Queen Elizabeth was “Supreme Leader Of The New World Order”.

Jewish financier George Soros and Nixon adviser Henry Kissinger are also mentioned.

The thread also claimed that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion – an old antisemitic text known to be fake – was “not a fabrication” and that “it is certainly no anti-semetic [sic] to point out this fact.”

After The Daily Beast published the story, Ms Mendoza – who sits on the Women for Trump advisory board – reportedly deleted the tweet and apologised “for not paying attention to the intent of the whole message.

“That does not reflect my feelings or personal thoughts whatsoever,” she added.

Ms Mendoza, an “angel mom”, had been due to speak to the convention about her son’s death in 2014 due to a drunk driver who had entered the US illegally.
