In a pleasant twist, Godwin’s Law has been turned on its concern-trolling old head: Yes, GOP crank Arthur Jones is an actual Nazi! Jones is a terribly sane old white insurance salesman who likes to run around Lyons, Ill., denying the Holocaust, goosestepping with the Grand Old National Socialist Party while they march on Marquette Park, and calling his opponents Jews*. And hooray! He is running for Congress!
A thing called the “Oaklawn Patch” has done wonderful work in reporting quotes like this one, for larfs:
A member of the Nationalist Socialist Party in his younger days, Jones took part in the Nazis’ march on Chicago’s Marquette Park in 1978. While he doesn’t deny nor repudiate his “past affiliations,” he says he votes Republican “90 percent of the time.”
But of course, sometimes even horrifying Nazi insurance salesmen are right twice a day? And thus you have “nuanced” policy positions like so: “These war-mongering fools in congress like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney—we can’t let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want,” Jones said. “This is ridiculous.” So expect some of your more dearly deluded #Occupy brethren (the kinds whose signs excoriate the Rothschilds, because of how it is 1884) to get all Ron Paul ReLOVEution up on him.
Illinois’s Third District includes the Mau Maus of Barry’s South Side. Also some Poles and Russians and such, some of whom are conceivably … well, you know. Other.
Does that scare Art Jones? It does not. Herr Jones has “skirmished” with “leftists” before, because he is not a goddamn pansy like the rest of your far-too-fucking-moderate-sellout-establishment GOP, which, unaccountably, is against curb-stomping, at least out loud.
*Art Jones’s hopeful eventual opponent, Rep. Frank Wolf, is actually a Presbyterian, which is only in a Jew in the John Schmitz sense of the word, that “Jews are just like everyone else, only more so.”
