PRESS RELEASE: Gillum's Chocolate Milk Girl's Anti-Fa Connections Exposed


For Immediate Release

Media Contact: David McCallister 850-778-5361 Email:


TAMPA - Shelby Shoup, arrested for assault in Tallahassee earlier this week appears to have strong ties to Anti-Fa in Tampa. Miss Shoup blasted into the headlines earlier this week after being arrested for assaulting a fellow student on campus at Florida State University ("FSU"). Media reports the attack might be politically motivated as she is an intern for Democrat Gubernatorial Andrew Gillum and the victim was a member of the FSU College Republicans. A viral video shows her throwing the milk after calling the student "Nazis". Anti-Fa is a dangerous radical group that have been called the "enforcement arm of the modern Democrat Party" that burst into the news with their participation in the Charlottesville, VA counter-protest and anti-free speech protests around the Country. They claim to opposed fascism, but their tactics and ideology has been likened to those they claim to oppose. Research indicates that Miss Shoup, a student at FSU, is the daughter of Beth Eriksen-Shoup, who has been recognized in Tampa's Progressive News Source "Ybor City Stogie" as the "Local Bad Ass" (link Here). Mrs. Shoup was part of the shouting Mob demanding the removal of the Tampa War Memorial in the summer of 2017, delivering a vitriolic rant to the County Commissioners. Mrs. Shoupe was featured on page 73 on the Save Southern Heritage Florida ("SSH FL") Study of Speakers for Removing Confederate War Memorial at July 19, 2017 Hillsborough County BOCC Meeting (see Study Here). The Study showed the anti-veterans memorial coalition included Anti-Fa, the Democrat Party as well other groups including the Council on American Islamic Relations ("CAIR"). Sadly, Miss Shoup seems to have squandered the promise identified in High School in 2015, as a Junior in the International Baccalaureate student when she was recognized as one of 10 "Young Women of Promise" and again in 2016 at her Synagogue where she was recognized as runner-up in the national NFTY Wendy Blickstein Memorial D'var Torah competition. She was and later elected to a national position at the North American Federation Temple Youth (NFTY) (info Here). "It is not clear when Miss Shoup became so radicalized that she aligned with the Democratic Socialists but it seems bad fruit doesn't fall far from the tree" said SSH FL spokesman David McCallister. Recently, high profile Democrat candidates have called for 'civility' and have promised it "when they win" today's election. "The irony is that Miss Shoupe, who is ethnically Jewish has become a capo for CAIR and radical Islamists who seek to destroy Israel and the Jewish people, but calls those who respect and revere 'the chosen people' "Facists" concluded McCallister. SAVE SOUTHERN HERITAGE Inc. is a not for profit corporation that educates & advocates on behalf of Southern Heritage & History. It was started in 2015 in response to the knee-jerk Anti-Southern institutionalized bullying and “Eracism” levied against the people of South Carolina by Governor Nikki Haley, after she broke all previous agreements about how South Carolina’s historical veterans and their symbols should be treated and respected. The Florida branch was activated in mid-January 2016, in response to three initiatives in the Florida Legislature that are part of a hate campaign led by Anti-American extremists, who refuse to respect the various cultures that make up the fabric of Florida’s society. Since that time, it has grown in membership and has been active in battles over American History and throughout Florida including the “We’ll Remember in November Campaign” that resulted in #heritagehater candidates to lose elections in Florida and others to win.
