Neo-Nazi Arthur Jones Wins Illinois Republican US House Primary

Jones says he's a “Pro-Life–Yes. Homosexual Agenda–No!” candidate

Via Newsweek: 

Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier and “long-time neo-Nazi” whose website promotes anti-Semitic material, is the Republican Party’s official candidate in a congressional district spanning areas of Chicago after he ran unopposed in a primary.

The 70-year-old Vietnam War veteran, who is standing in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional district for a seat in the House of Representatives, is a notorious white supremacist. His own party, the Illinois Republicans, denounced him and he will not receive the GOP’s endorsement as a candidate.

Jones is a former leader of the American Nazi Party has has spoken publicly at numerous neo-Nazi rallies and events, and protested the opening of the Holocaust museum in Illinois as well as participated in events celebrating Adolf Hitler’s birthday.

“The idea that ‘Six Million Jews’ were killed by the National Socialist government of Germany, in World War II, is the biggest, blackest lie in history. Other than a few Professional Concentration Camp Survivors, such as the late Simon Wiesenthal or the current Semitic super star Elie Wiesel, there is no proof such a so-called ‘Holocaust’ ever took place anywhere in Europe, against the Jews.” Jones said.

Jones says he’s “Pro-Life–Yes. Homosexual Agenda–No!” He is against giving any money to Planned Parenthood and says the “homosexual movement” is an assault on the teachings of Christianity.
