Neo-Nazi Senate Candidate Patrick Little Banned From California GOP Convention

Patrick Little, the avowedly anti-Semitic Republican candidate for U.S. senator from California who ranked surprisingly high in a recent poll, was banned by the state party from registering for their convention and was removed by security, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday.

Little, who has called for a government “free from Jews,” polled in second place with 18% of the vote in a survey last month conducted by the respected polling company SurveyUSA. If such results held, he would be able to advance to the general election as the official Republican nominee under California’s “jungle primary” rules.

The state Republican party has condemned his candidacy and barred him from attending their event in San Diego.

When he was escorted out of the building, he was “kicking and dragging an Israeli flag on the ground,” GOP consultant Luis Alvaradotold the Chronicle. “That doesn’t represent our values.”
