The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Arthur Jones — an outspoken Holocaust denier, activist anti-Semite and white supremacist — is poised to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat representing parts of Chicago and nearby suburbs.
“Well first of all, I’m running for Congress not the chancellor of Germany. All right. To me the Holocaust is what I said it is: It’s an international extortion racket,” Jones told the Chicago Sun-Times. Indeed, Jones’ website for his latest congressional run includes a section titled “The ‘Holocaust Racket’” where he calls the genocide carried out by the German Nazi regime and collaborators in other nations “the biggest blackest lie in history.”
Jones, 70, a retired insurance agent who lives in suburban Lyons, has unsuccessfully run for elected offices in the Chicago area and Milwaukee since the 1970s. The outcome will be different for Jones in the Illinois primary on March 20, 2018. To Jones’ own amazement, he is the only one on the Republican ballot.
Jones will likely be trounced in November as the district is one of the state’s most deeply Democratic. As you’d expect, Nazis are flooding the YouTube comments of the clip below.
