20,000 Republicans Just Voted for an Actual Nazi

The former head of the American Nazi Party ran for the Republican nomination of Congress in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District. No Republican stepped up to oppose him. On Tuesday, despite his vocal Holocaust denial, his anti-Semitic rhetoric, and his white supremacist views, 20,339 Illinois Republicans, according to preliminary totals, cast their ballots for Arthur Jones.

Republicans can't run away from this, it should be like a tattoo, always there to let everyone know who they really are. I will never look at the Republican Party the same way again.

The primary threat to this country are the hysteria enablers and propagation agents, such as yourself.

Who disperse fear and boogeymen non-stop, instead of liberal policy.

Opposing racist, fascist Nazis is good liberal policy. A much better policy than your and Sniper's appeasement.

FTA:

While the National Republican Congressional Committee, the campaign arm of the House GOP, dismissed Jones last month as "a fringe candidate who has been doing this for over a decade with with no real connection to the GOP," his campaign platform mirrors President Trump's agenda. Jones' campaign website promises to "put America first" with border protections, the elimination of "Sanctuary Cities", no "amnesty for illegal aliens," gun rights, and a repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Let explain and I'll use really small words so you can understand.

He is a Nazi. Nazis are bad. Nazis want to kill people. We should be afraid of electing them. We should be afraid that one got 20,000 votes even if they were Republican votes.

I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

You want to know how to drown out nazis?

With 24/7 Cable News coverage of liberal leaders, acting like statesmen and women, bring policies to discussion groups, and explaining how to pay for it.

Show the American people the benefits of solving problems and paying for it as we go.

While we're at it, let's come up with ideas on shrinking military misadventures, and educating our children through college.

So much to talk about, other than nazis.

It would be more productive than 24/7 Trump TV.

Voters and volunteers would fill stadiums with the right leadership.

This, we've seen. But then the DNC tanked it. They tanked policy, then tried to co-opt it.

Lesser evil is progressively more evil, that tanks what is good for all of us. THAT is what we have to fight against.

#15 | Posted by SheepleSchism at 2018-03-21 07:22 PM

That's what I thought.

#16 | Posted by snoofy at 2018-03-21 07:27 PM

You need evidence to do what's right and good?

Is it not self-evident? Is right and good ever unprofitable in the human sense?

#17 | Posted by SheepleSchism at 2018-03-21 07:31 PM

"Is it not self-evident?"

It's quite evident what defeated the Nazis, it was an even worse ideology called Communism, with some help from the West.

Not the nonsense you're babbling.

#18 | Posted by snoofy at 2018-03-21 07:33 PM

Is feeding the poor and housing the homeless worth the cost of a dozen drones ordered by any (R) or (D)?

Is single-payer worth going to bat for, or shall we saddle the poor with an insurance payment that covers nothing?

I'm talking about the waste of TRILLIONS on the rich and their killing machines instead of our own people.

Yeah, I believe 24/7 news coverage of policy and leaders discussing how we can pay for it all will drive voters to the polls.

No stupid. Lesser evil is progressively less evil.

If everyone voted for the lesser evil in the primary it would have been bernie vs trump. If everyone voted for the lesser evil in the general it we'd have prez sanders.

And even prez clinton would be lightyears better than president trump for every issue you care about. You're just pathologically unable to see that because you're blinded by clinton obsessed hatred.

Bernie saw the Titanic going down and called for lifeboats. I get it.

She wasn't worth saving. We would be stuck in neoliberal wars and economics for the next 20 years.

This way, we may have a shot at 2020. If policy takes precedence over party.

It just seems odd to me that a Sanders progressive like Sheeple would take such pleasure in defending oligarchs like Putin and Trump (and most of Trump's cabinet). This isn't about a Red Scare, and it isn't about the Russian people against us. This is about oligarchs, who have no loyalty to the countries they inhabit but who stir up support through nationalistic memes, against the rest of us.

So instead of someone who's policies were 20% in common with bernie's, you prefer somone who's policies are 0% in common with bernie's.

Look, if you want to defend Trump based on his actions: defend Trump.

Hilary won the democratic primary (in opposition to my vote) in accordance to their rules. Yup, there was a bunch'a messed up stuff going on, but she won, (despite my vote to the contrary) in the same way that Trump won (despite my vote to the contrary).

As someone who supported Bernie, and who had never...ever...voted for Hillary prior to the '16 general, the improprieties in the selection process for the democratic candidate still makes my blood boil.

However, as someone who has also observed Trump continuing (over the course of decades) to hold himself to the standards he set for himself in "The Art of the Deal" (those standards are not high), the choice between Hillary and Trump was clear. The points of delineation between those choices are clear today. And, as we move forward, I see no reason to expect the distinction will not remain clear.

But we are not called to answer for what we might have done in a better circumstance. We are called upon to answer for what we did do. So, if your only defense for supporting Trump is attacking Hillary...then you're in for a long four years. Here's the upshot for you: we're all in for a long four years.

Out of those 20,000

How many people who voted for this guy had absolutely zero knowledge about him other than they saw the party affiliation next to his name when they stepped in the voting booth?

How many voted for him because he was the only candidate for that position and they may have been concerned that their whole ballot wouldn't count if they left a section blank?

How many were people who only registered to vote in this primary to make the party look bad?

#42 | Posted by sentinel at 2018-03-22 12:00 AM

I hear most of them were illegal immigrants.

The rest of the votes were from Hillary Clinton. She single handedly voted 5,000 times for the Nazi the Republicans chose as a candidate. In order to make the Republican Party look bad. Because having a Nazi as a candidate didn't make the republicans look bad enough.

I appreciate that you want to walk down a road of supposition. However, it seems you've omitted the most indelicate question: how many voted for him either knowing he is a Nazi or because he is a Nazi?

With respect to you first question (zero knowledge about him), individuals of all ideological backgrounds should be able to agree that ignorance of this sort makes for a very poor voter. I feel the same about any "green" voters who pick the candidate in Montana. In this day and age, that degree of ignorance should be reasonably considered to be "willful".

So, on the spectrum of possibilities, I'd argue that fear regarding the democratic process is the least bad and voting for him because he was a Nazi is the most bad. Registering to vote to embarrass the Republican party is bad, but I'd assert that the whole "because he's a Nazi" is worse.

Funny, and it must be said, the sitting POTUS does not encourage faith in the democratic process (I'm reminded of declarations regarding to a "3 to 5 million votes" something or other).

Finally, I appreciate your presuppositions of innocence/ignorance (as innocence/ignorance are two of the few arguments allowing me to retain any faith in humanity). So, I gave you my spectrum of least-bad Nazi voter to most-bad Nazi voter. I'm genuinely interested to hear what your spectrum looks like.
