North Carolina GOP Congressman Walter Jones Appears On White Supremacist Radio Show

For the first time in history a Washington politician, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) has openly and unabashedly appeared on a white supremacist radio show The Political Cesspool.

From Mother Jones:

Rep. Walter Jones, a fiercely anti-war congressman who often breaks with his party on key votes, appeared on the Political Cesspool, a Memphis-based program hosted by ardent white nationalists James Edwards and Eddie Miller. The show has been condemned by groups like the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center for promoting racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic beliefs. Jones is the first member of Congress to appear on the program. An avowed white nationalist who says David Duke is “above reproach,” Edwards has referred to African-Americans as “heathen savages” and “subhuman” and suggested that slavery was “the greatest thing that ever happened” to blacks.

The show’s mission statement is blunt: “We represent a philosophy that is pro-White and are against political centralization,” it declares. It then outlines a series of issues the show exists to promote. “We wish to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility and beyond to grow the percentage of Whites in the world relative to other races,” reads one plank. Another bullet point endorses the Confederacy: “Secession is a right of all people and individuals. It was successful in 1776 and this show honors those who tried to make it successful in 1865.”

In a sane United States, this would be the nail in the coffin of his career.  But that’s not exactly the case anymore is it.
