‘Sorry I voted for the son of a b*tch”: Holocaust denying ex-GOP candidate rips Trump for listening to Jewish son-in-law

Published

on

One defining feature of the first 100 days of the Donald Trump administration has been the surge in anti-Semitism sweeping the country. Now a small Kentucky town is bracing for violence between armed neo-Nazis and protesters.

Lois Beckett, senior reporter for the Guardian, has a longform investigative dispatch from Pikeville, Kentucky on Saturday’s planned neo-Nazi rally. “On Friday evening, the neo-Nazis assembled at a Walmart parking lot and formed a caravan of more than 20 cars…”

Beckett spoke with Art Jones, “who the Anti-Defamation League identifies as a Holocaust denier who has been dressing in Nazi garb and celebrating Hitler since the 1970s.”

“I’m sorry I voted for the son of a bitch, I really am,” Jones told Beckett. “I’m embarrassed that I voted for him.”

Beckett reported that Jones abandoned Trump due to the “Jewish lobby” and Trump relying upon the counsel of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner (who is Jewish).

Jones is a Republican who sought election to the United States Congress from Illinois in both 2012 and 2016. While Jones was once officially a member of the Nationalist Socialist Party, during his first congressional bid he stated he votes Republican 90% of the time.

In the same 2012 interview, Jones claimed the, “Holocaust never happened.”

“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Jones stated. “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.”

On Friday in the Walmart parking lot, Mike Schloer of the National Socialist Movement listed epithets that should not be used in public by neo-Nazi rally participants. “Do not use any foul language or any racial slurs.”

Saturday’s neo-Nazi march is said to feature five dozen members of the Indiana III percenters militia organization — in full body armor and brandishing AR-15s.

Multiple businesses in Pikeville will be staying closed as the neo-Nazis gather in front of the historic courthouse.

Published

on

A new report from the New York Times claims that American intelligence officials believe that the effort to blame Ukraine for meddling in the 2016 presidential election is part of a "yearslong" Russian intelligence operation aimed at exonerating Moscow.

According to the Times, intelligence officials recently "informed senators and their aides in recent weeks that Russia had engaged in a yearslong campaign to essentially frame Ukraine as responsible for Moscow’s own hacking of the 2016 election."

Resurfaced quotes come back to haunt Graham and Nunes on impeachment

Published

on

A video showing Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., during the Clinton impeachment proceedings resurfaced this week, illustrating how the Judiciary Committee chairman has reversed his stance on impeachment now that an inquiry has been activated into President Donald Trump.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Graham, an ardent ally of President Trump, sponsored a resolution that has been co-signed by all but three Senate Republicans decrying the House impeachment probe. He told Fox News host Sean Hannity in October that any articles of impeachment against Trump should be “dismissed in the Senate without a trial.” He also called the impeachment inquiry proceedings a “lynching in every sense.”
