Youcis told Daily News columnist Will Bunch that she had been a supporter of the white nationalist "alt-right" movement for about 10 months before becoming involved in an altercation after leaving a conference held by the National Policy Institute back in November.

"Basically, we just want to keep whites from becoming minorities in their own homeland," Youcis told Inquirer columnist and CNN host Michael Smerconish, going on to proclaim that "Jews dominate the media. Jews started communism."
