The media eye has zeroed in on Jeff Sessions saying “lock her up” at the recent Turning Point USA high school leadership conference on July 24th. These optics focus the narrative on the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's leadership, and thus national electoral personality politics, rather than the fascist base building that is the real Turning Point USA. That base building is sponsored by the Devos family, and fascist is not a hyperbolic misnomer, but a key ingredient.

Turning Point USA has been clawing it's way to the top of the campus conservative movement in the United States over the last year. As a an allegedly national “student” group it claims “We believe in free markets, limited government, and fiscal responsibility.” In reality, it seems more like a vehicle for political control of student life, a vehicle for a rising wave of Neo-McCarthyism, and increasingly a portal for training members of this country's growing neo-nazi movement. The group is having their statewide conference tomorrow, April 15th, at the downtown Crowne Plaza Hotel.
