New WSU College Republican president sends controversial tweet

WSU College Republican President tweets

PULLMAN, Wash. —  Washington State University College Republicans new President Amir Rezamand posted a tweet during the “Unite the Right" Rally saying he wished he was in Charlottesville.


Rezamand has since deleted the tweet.  Some of our viewers asked KREM 2 to look into what Rezamand meant by the tweet, so KREM 2’s Amanda Roley called him Tuesday to find out more information.  The new WSU College Republicans president said he declined to comment over the phone and said his recent tweets speak for themselves.

Recent tweets from Rezamand’s account start by saying he wants to clear the air.

"There was a rampant violence on both sides of the Charlottesville incident. This is due to polarization,” he writes in a series of several tweets.


He continues saying he spent a week at a conference in Washington D.C.  He said the message of the conference was that political violence does nothing and solves nothing.


Rezamand also tweeted that he is more libertarian than conservative and not pro-authoritarianism. This is a different ideology than the College Republicans former president who claimed to be paleoconservative.

KREM 2 reached out to other officers of WSU College Republicans and have not yet received a response to their new leadership.
