But when Anaheim officials criticized controversial politicians for bringing the event to the city, the venue changed its mind about hosting pro-Trump delegates and their supporters.
“A planned America First rally at a private venue in our city has been canceled,” the city tweeted.
“The City of Anheim shared public concerns with the operator and those concerns were shared by the operator.
“As a city we respect free speech but also have a duty to call out speech that does not reflect the city and its values.”
The latest embarrassing cancellation comes after two venues, the Pacific Hills Banquet and Event Center and Riverside Convention Center in Laguna Hills, were canceled when complaints flooded over GOP members.
At the same time, members of the city council in Riverside also opposed the event. Council member Ronald Fierro said: “The hateful and racist rhetoric that will be made at this event by these two famous extremists has no place in our city.”
Marjorie Taylor Green, a Georgia congresswoman, lost her House committee assignment in February after videos of her endorsement surfaced QAnon and 9/11 conspiracy theories, as well as haunting school survivors.
She also called for the execution of House Leader Nancy Pelosi in a Facebook post, and compared the Senate’s masked mandate to the Holocaust, for which she later apologized.
Mr. Getz, a Florida congressman, is being investigated by the Justice Department for alleged sex trafficking, which he vehemently denies. He has not been charged with any offence.
Mr Getz posted a message on Twitter after the cancellation saying the event would not be put on hold.
“OMG The venue for today’s #AmericaFirst rally is going to be better than we ever imagined (Marjorie Taylor Green). ” He tweeted.
