Thomas Bleming, a candidate for the U.S. Senate from Wyoming, has posted anti-Semitic videos on his Facebook page.

Among Bleming’s postings is a video he labeled “the eternal Jew, updated for 2010.” “The Eternal Jew” is a notorious Nazi propaganda film that described Jews as “parasites” intent on world domination.

The video posted by Bleming, who announced last week that he would challenge incumbent Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) for his seat, appears to use the original script with contemporary images. It also includes images of Jews who have been convicted of crimes, among them Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff and Dr. Baruch Goldstein, who massacred Muslims in Hebron. The film says, “All these Jews are typical.”

“This vid tells it like it is, and of course those responsible for exposing what each and everyone knows is true, is an ‘anti-semite,’ ” Bleming wrote.

The video also includes clips from several people making anti-Israel statements, including Ralph Nader and John Mearsheimer.

Bleming, 66, also posted a film, “Real Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies People,” with his comment, “And we all know WHO controls Hollywood.”

Bleming, who also has posted that Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels were right about the dangers of the Jewish people, told The Associated Press that he doesn’t regard himself as a Nazi.

“I wouldn’t say so,” he said. “I’m an American.”

Bleming hoisted an M1 carbine at a saloon south of Cheyenne as he made his announcement, according to The Associated Press.

  • "My husband has been offered a terrific new job in a decent-sized Midwestern city. This is mostly great, except for the fact that we will have to leave our beloved NYC, where one can feel Jewish without trying very hard. He is half-Jewish and was raised with a fair amount of Judaism and respect for our tradition though ultimately he doesn’t feel Jewish in that Larry David sort of way like I do. So, he thinks I am nuts for hesitating to move to this new essentially Jew-less city. Oh, did I mention I am pregnant? Seesaw, this concern of mine is real, right? There is something to being surrounded by Jews, no? What should we do?"
