Rolling Stone was forced to issue a correction this week after claiming that Nazis support Ron DeSantis, who is currently seeking the 2024 Republican nomination.
Rolling Stone issued a correction this week after publishing an article highlighting a small group of approximately two dozen individuals dress in Nazi paraphernalia who marched in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend and shouted obscenities.
Writer Peer Wade orginally stated that that one member of the crowd said, “We’re all DeSantis supporters! We like Ron DeSantis.”
“When right-wing figure Laura Loomer appeared at the march, recording the Neo-Nazis with her cell phone, the crowd began to chant [homophobic slurs] in her direction. Loomer explained she was at the rally because she was getting her hair done nearby. ‘We’re not voting Trump, Laura!’ one marcher shouted at her. ‘We’re not voting for the right wing! It’s like the [antisemitic slur] wing.’ At this point, another marcher shouted, ‘We’re all DeSantis supporters!’” Wade wrote.
The article failed to mention that the same person then immedtiately attacked DeSantis, saying he was just kidding with his remarks.
“You’re joking when you say DeSantis, right?” the reporter presses.
“F*** Ron DeSantis! Ron DeSantis is a joke,” the person said. “Ron DeSantis is a joke.”
Another neo-Nazi can then be heard saying he hates the right and criticized former President Donald Trump before saying he prefers President Joe Biden’s foreign policy.
The correction from Rolling Stone stated “The original version of this article quoted a marcher as saying, “We’re all DeSantis supporters!” without including his second remark, “F*** Ron DeSantis! Ron DeSantis is a joke. Ron DeSantis is a joke.” The story has been updated.“
