A Real Nazi Just Won Republican Nomination For Congress

Arthur Jones is a notorious white supremacist and Holocaust denier. And he just won.


UPDATE: Arthur Jones, who was denounced by his own party for his white supremacist views, has won the Republican primary in Illinois' Third Congressional District.


He has been involved with racist groups since the 1970s. 

He is also a Holocaust denier who has said that the Holocaust is a lie "and nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews."

While he has no real chance of winning the general election, considering Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District is heavily Democratic, it's still unsettling to see Jones is currently running uncontested. 

His campaign website features images of him speaking at and attending white supremacist events.

He refers to non-fiction Holocaust literature as “emotional propaganda, whose purpose is designed to BLEED, BLACKMAIL, EXTORT AND TERRORIZE the enemies of ORGANIZED WORLD JEWRY into silence or submissiveness to ZIONISM and Communism.”

"Jones has been active in several groups throughout the last few decades," states the Anti-Defamation League. "Including the conspiratorial and anti-Semitic Populist Party, the National Socialist White People's Party and, briefly, the American Nazi Party. In 1980, he left the American Nazi Party and revived the America First Committee, a group he said he founded "to combat the dual evils of Communism and Zionism." 

Although he has been running for the position since the 70s, until now he was never a "viable contender."

Meanwhile, the Illinois Republican Party condemned his likely nomination, saying there is no "place for Nazis like Arthur Jones. We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District."
