GOP’s Neo-Nazi Candidate In Chicago Denies Holocaust In Anti-Semitic Rant

    Arthur Jones, the Republican candidate for a Chicago congressional district and a neo-Nazi, made a series of anti-Semitic comments in an interview with the Jewish Chronicle.

    Jones ran unopposed in the Republican primary for Illinois’ third district — a heavily blue one.

    In the interview, Jones denied being an active member of the Nazi party, which he says he was a member of in the 1970s.

    During the interview, Jones rattled off a series of conspiracy theories about the Holocaust, such as saying it was depicted inaccurately in the media, and that it was impossible that Nazis could have killed six million Jews.

    Jones was then asked how he felt about American Jews.

    “If they’re loyal Americans I got no problems with Jews,” he said. “I have a problem with Zionists and communists and international Jewish bankers. Look at all the pornography: most of the pornographers are Jewish.”
