Role At Key Events:
At a rally organized by Super Happy Fun America against democrat violence:
John Hugo, the tricorn hat-wearing organizer of Sunday’s rally, told his group they had gathered to “push back against the violence that is engulfing this country.”
He also rattled off a list of figures he called “enemies,” including the news media, Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins, social media companies, and liberal donor and philanthropist George Soros.
“We need law and order,” he said, adding later, “This is a call to arms.”

Hugo organized a car rally in April 2020:
In these photos notice the Build the Wall anti immigrant sign as well as the Betsy Ross flag. The flag has been adopted by extremist groups. The KKK started using the Betsy Ross flag in 2017.
The Gadsden Flag (“Don’t tread on me”) has a complicated history. While not overtly racist, it was explained this way by Tim Libretti “When white supremacists wave the flag, we need to see the racist contradictions informing their definitions of freedom. They aren’t really saying “Don’t Tread on Me,” they are saying give them the right to tread on others violently and fatally, to deprive others of their constitutional rights.” In Yes, Please Don’t Tread on Us: Racist Contradictions Informing American “Freedom” June 9, 2020 Medium
