Neo-Nazi Former Candidate Trying To Create ‘Regional Capital’ In Idaho

Patrick Little, the neo-Nazi who claims Jews conspired to stop him from winning a U.S. Senate race in California, says he plans to establish a “regional capital” in northern Idaho, the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Washington reported.

His publicity tactic is familiar — anti-Semitic robocalls.

Residents in Sandpoint, Idaho, said they received automated phone messages from Little, where he speaks over an instrumental version of The Rembrandts’ 1995 song “I’ll Be There for You,” which was also the theme for the sitcom “Friends.”

“America has a Jewish problem,” Little says at the start of the call. “To the people of Sandpoint, Bonner County, North Idaho: My name is Patrick Little, and I’ll be arriving shortly to make Sandpoint one of my new regional capitals throughout the country. This area has a reputation as a home to people with the moral courage to recognize the consequences of diversity.”

He concludes with more views on North Idaho, saying the region “has some of the best people anywhere, brought up in the old American pioneer spirit of hard work, family values, common sense and fighting off the nation-wrecking plans of leftists – and their Jewish controllers who aim to ruin our people forever.”

One Sandpoint resident said the call came from a toll-free number, which appears on Little’s website.

Ninety-second robocalls encouraged listeners to support Little — who the call said had “vowed to end Jewish control over America” — back in May, during his failed campaign against five-term Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
