I have never heard of anything like this in the Democratic Party

Posted by Charles II on March 1, 2012

Lorraine Swanson, Oaklawn Patch (via t/o):

Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolf Hitler’s birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Jones said. “It’s the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV.

I’ve left the link to Gauleiter Jones’ website off. If one believes that anti-Semitism is dead, it’s not. But the Israeli right-wing is certainly trying to destroy the credibility of charges of anti-Semitism. Very dangerous, when there really are people like Arthur Jones out there, waiting for a moment when people get tired of hearing, “wolf, wolf.”

    The Democratic party is demonstrably capable of this level of misbehavior.

    One word: Klanbake.

      Well, yes. That’s almost a century ago, so I wouldn’t have heard about it.

      Even so, supporting the Nazis post-Holocaust is really noticeably worse than being a violent, racist thug in early 20th century America.

      Thanks for the advisory. I check it daily, or almost so, but am upset that Akismet seems to flag your comments. It has been instructed many times that they are not spam.

      Slow learner, I guess.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
