Arthur Jones — an outspoken Holocaust denier, activist anti-Semite and white supremacist — is poised to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat representing parts of Chicago and nearby suburbs.

“Well first of all, I’m running for Congress not the chancellor of Germany. All right. To me the Holocaust is what I said it is: It’s an international extortion racket,” Jones told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Indeed, Jones’ website for his latest congressional run includes a section titled “The ‘Holocaust Racket’” where he calls the genocide carried out by the German Nazi regime and collaborators in other nations “the biggest blackest lie in history.”

That would still make you a supporter of a vile ideology your country fought a war against...

Don't worry, he will lose because the Third District is an hardcore Democratic stronghold and the GOP there is so weak it is the reason why he was even nominated to begin with.

He lost the last time he reid to run there.

@ JeanP

All I know about this is what you said. But if so, it was a pity the 'normal' Republicans did not shut him down. As a hardcore Democratic stronghold, they were going to lose anyway: closing ranks against him would be losing with dignity.

Citizen Justin:

The Republicans did try to get him removed from the ballot but were unsuccessful this year. Back in 2016, they were able to get him removed because some of his signatures were invalid. This year, because he got all the signatures and filled out the forms correctly, there was nothing the GOP could do.

I love how neo-nazis think it's perfectly OK to come out and not only spew their beliefs in public, but to also do it while running for public office. And I also love how this puts the Republican Party in an uncomfortable spot. Do they disavow him and allow a Democrat to win, or do they support him and allow his racist beliefs to further tarnish the party?
