Three stories -
The Republican who denies the Holocaust -
Art Jones, who hopes to challenge Democrat Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District, neither denies nor repudiates his past affiliation with the neo-Nazi Party.
A congressional candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois primary says the “Holocaust never happened.”
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 againstDemocratic 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….
Part of the reason he’s jumping in again is what he describes as Lipinski’s strange affiliation with the American Israel Pro Israel Affairs Committee.
“(The committee) was bragging on their website how (Lipinski) is ‘spearheading’ the effort in the House of Representatives with a Jewish congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf,” Jones said. “The two are spearheading an effort in the House to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III.”
While Jones said Wolf was Jewish, he is Presbyterian.
Mr. Jones fits right in with the Limbaugh Republican sect, calling College girls “whores” while flying off in their private jets to child prostitution capitals for “getaways”. And Frank Wolf is not Jewish, He is Christian. He is also my Congressman in this District so I know him pretty well.
Then there is Republican Delegate Mary Franson, who calls Food Stamp recipients…”animals”.
The Minnesota House GOP was smart enough to pull down the video, but dumb enough to put a camera in front of someone challenged in both brain and heart. They were too slow forHongPong on YouTube, who saved and uploaded it, with a hat tip to Bluestem Prairie where I found the video posted.
About 1:50 in, Franson read “this little funny clip we got from a friend”:
It says, ‘Isn’t it ironic that the food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to please not feed the animals, because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
This comparison of people receiving some form of government assistance (that’s almost everybody, but of course they mean the poor, not themselves) to animals is a minor meme on the right. Franson and her anonymous “funny” clip writer join the infamous ranks of Nebraska AG and GOP US Senate candidate Jon Bruning who compared poor people to raccoons eating cockroaches, and South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer who compared them to stray animals that breed too much when fed by children.
