Those who don't like living in the 'largest nation' can 'fuck off', says arsonist Gómez

A fiery Republican candidate has delivered a stark critique of slavery reparations in her campaign to become Missouri secretary of state.

Valentina Gómez, a 25-year-old real estate investor, in a video tweet harshly criticized Juneteenth, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and their plans to compensate the descendants of slavery victims.

The gun-toting MAGA candidate, who in a stunt last month told voters not to be “weak and gay,” is on the ballot in the Aug. 6 Republican primary for the nominee for secretary of state.

His comments come during a divisive election season, in which politics around race, gender and sexual identities have become front-page issues and, for some candidates, a vote-winner.

“They’re about to shove reparations down our throats for slavery and Black victimization during America’s most miserable holiday,” Gomez said in this week’s viral X video.

‘BLM raised millions. And what did they do for black lives?

Gómez, a native of Colombia who openly supports former President Donald Trump, sharply criticized those seeking payments for the historical sins of slavery, segregation and Jim Crow.

“It’s outrageous to see people asking for reparations, even though they never experienced slavery,” he said.

“These ungrateful people should be celebrating because they were born in the greatest nation that has ever existed.”

He concluded with foul-mouthed ‘advice’ to those pushing the racial justice agenda.

“If you don’t like America, please get out.”

The clip then cuts to a photo of Gómez holding a rifle, a common image on his social media.

Gomez is running for Missouri Secretary of State as a Republican. Because the state is heavily red, the winner of the Republican primary is likely to prevail in the general election.

The incumbent, Republican Jay Ashcroft, is running for governor of Missouri, leaving the seat vacant.

Gómez has attracted much more attention than her competitors simply for her controversial stances and provocative videos.

One showed her running through the largely LGBTQ neighborhood of Soulard in St. Louis in May, wearing a bulletproof vest and telling voters not to be “weak and gay.”

In February, she shared images of herself setting fire to two LGBTQ-themed books, characterizing the texts as “grooming, indoctrinating, and sexualizing.”

‘When I am Secretary of State, I WILL BURN all the books that are grooming, indoctrinating and sexualizing our children. MAGA. “America first,” he wrote in X.

After Instagram removed the video, Gomez told HuffPost that she was, “Just like President Trump,” adding, “I’m one of the most repressed voices on Instagram.”

Gomez has previously said “don’t be gay” when referring to “countries that ban rifles, pistols or even flamethrowers,” as reported by radio station WCPT.

His social media bio reads: ‘Jesus is King. MAGA. America first.’

He opposes vaccine mandates and the “transgender agenda.”

Gómez has also expressed his admiration for Andrew Tate, accused of human trafficking in Romania.

According to his LinkedIn, he has been working at Nestlé Purina since October 2021.

Viewers quickly got to work responding to her latest campaign video, posted on June 18, with many calling her “fraudulent” and “cosplaying a military veteran.”

Others noted his strong Colombian accent and questioned his immigration status.

Since the secretary of state serves as Missouri’s top elections official, Gomez has floated plans to revamp the voting system.

She says the 2020 election was stolen from Trump, which may inform her plan to “eliminate electronic voting machines to successfully transition to universal hand counting of paper ballots,” according to her campaign website .

He also supports deploying the National Guard to monitor polling places in Missouri.

The reparations movement she criticizes gained momentum across the United States amid racial protests over the police killing of George Floyd in 2020, but progress has stalled more recently.

Advocates say it is time for the United States to pay its black residents for the injustices of the historic transatlantic slave trade, Jim Crow segregation and inequalities that persist to this day.

Critics say payments to select black people will inevitably stoke divisions between winners and losers, and raise questions about why American Indians and others don’t get their own handouts.

They are popular with blacks who would benefit from them, but unpopular with whites, Asians and others who would foot the tax bill without benefiting themselves.
