Jews living in Illinois and beyond should be ticked off this morning, Arthur Jones, a Republican congressional candidate, says the “Holocaust never happened” and is “the blackest lie in history.” Jones, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolph Hitler’s birthday, may go up against Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski, if he wins the nomination.
“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Jones said. “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.”The more survivors, the more lies that are told.” Source: Oaklawn Patch
I have always advocated for my readers to take the time to read up about the candidates running for office in their district. A wingnut like Arthur Lyons has no place in our political discourse. So, I guess slavery didn’t happen either. There’s freedom of speech and then there’s just plain stupidity.
