#1  Jeez, a lot of links to disreputable liberal sites today.

#3  Probably be only deployed against the Tea party...

Occupy served the interests of its political owners, and the MSM covered up the more grisly truth.

US congressional nominee: Holocaust 'blackest lie' in history
A US Republican congressional hopeful has emphasized that "Holocaust never happened" and that such an event amounts to "the blackest lie in history."

Arthur Jones, who hopes to challenge Democrat Dan Lipinski in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District,
Illinois. Cheez. Why is it always Illinois?
noted that the claim of killing millions of Jews and other people by Nazis during the World War II "is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews," Huffington Post reported.

"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," he said

"The more survivors, the more lies that are told," the 64-year-old candidate said.

Jones said he hopes to win the Republican primary nomination and move on to challenge Democrat Dan Lipinski next November.

He also questioned Lipinski's strange affiliation with powerful pro-Israeli lobby group in the US-- American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Jones underlined that the pro-Israeli lobby "was bragging on their website" on how Lipinski is "spearheading an effort in the [US] House of Representatives with a Jewish Congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III."

Jones, a Vietnam War veteran, also compared current conditions in the US to the situation in Germany following the end of World War I and insisted that "our country is falling apart economically, politically, culturally, militarily."

"We are going down," he noted angrily.

"These war-mongering fools in congress like [Republican presidential candidates] Rick Santorum
...candidate for president and former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania. He was a lawyer before becoming the Representative for suburban Pittsburgh in 1991. He lost his Senate seat in 2006 to Bob Casey, a Democrat machine politician and political dynast. Santorum is a social conservative whose primary attraction is seemingly that he is neither Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich...
and Newt Gingrich
...former Speaker of the House, author of the Contract with America. Gingrich gave the country welfare reform and a balanced budget and the Publicans a landslide House victory in 1994. On the downside, he has a roving eye and a loose fly, he's opinionated, and he's abrasive despite his ability to work with the other side of the political aisle...
and Mitt Romney
...whose real first name is actually, no kidding, Willard, was governor of Massachussetts and is currently the front-runner for president on the Publican ticket. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney's foot is in an ideological bucket because of Romneycare, a state-level experiment that should have been a warning against Obamacare if anyone had been paying attention. Romney's charisma is best defined as soporific, which is probably why he is leading the Publican field...
-- we can't let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want," Jones said. "This is ridiculous."

Iran's President Mahmoud Short Round Ahmadinejad has called on a number of occasions for a historical examination of 'the Holocaust' in an effort to uncover realities of the much publicized World War II event. His remarks, however, have sparked outrage among pro-Israeli Western powers, labeling him as a "holocaust denier."

#2  I really hope there are more possible candidates to represent the Republican Party.

#3  Suck my ass, Jones. POS

#4  The whole party is diminished by this fellow. Hope he gets crushed in the primaries. If he wins I hope he loses the big race as I want the GOP to have no connection to the swine.

Would make an interesting dirty tactic. Provide money to the vilest folk you can and encourage them to run then plaster quotes everywhere to gradually create the opinion that they represent the opposition. Not saying that is what happened here (only takes signatures and a bit of cash to get into a primary) but I wouldn't be surprised if that sort of thing happens.

#6  Dang. Why couldn't he be a Democrat?

#7  The cuckoo clock is certainly appropriate, but couldn't this also be a Socialist Democrat Party "false flag" op? I think the dems have been running apparatchiks under the "R" banner for at least 50 years.
