Holocaust-denying Illinois Republican hopeful rails against 'Jews

Neo-Nazi leader Arthur Jones speaks in Kentucky April 2017

Arthur Jones is a self-described white supremacist who is running in the Republican primaries in Illinois's 3rd congressional district, which runs southwest from Chicago's downtown into the city's suburbs.

"Mr. Jones, It is shocking to hear how vocally and unapologetically racist you are", she said after playing a clip of Jones speaking at a Neo-Nazi gathering, "Are you a Nazi?".

Despite saying he hasn't been formally involved with Nazi organizations for "15, 20 years", Jones used his appearance to call the Holocaust a "scam" and an "extortion racket".

"I haven't belonged to one since about 1990,"he insisted, adding he now heads a group called the "America First Committee". "You are part of the white people's party, you dress in Nazi garb and you celebrate Hitler's birthday". But never fear, for CNN's Alisyn Camerota swooped in during an interview segment on Thursday's New Day with Jones to cure everyone of their blissful ignorance.

The GOP may not want to own that they're the party that houses the Nazi party, but when the jackboot fits... "I expected a little hostility", he said.

"Your website is filled with the most vile, rancid rhetoric I think I've ever read", Camerota confronted.

"There's nothing on that website that's not true", he said. Jones shot back. "You jews media, you've gone absolutely nuts!"




"Yes, I deny the Holocaust", Jones stated.

The criticism towards his website set Jones off onto a tirade about the "two party, Jew party" system. It is an extortion racket, pure and simple.

Jones, 70, hollered that his arguments were "not conspiracy theories, facts".

It also calls the Holocaust a "racket" created to "bleed, blackmail, extort and terrorize the enemies of organized world Jewry into silence or submissiveness to Zionism and communism - both movements founded, financed and led by Jews".

A section of the site headed "Holocaust?" says that "The idea that "Six Million Jews" were killed by the Nationalist Socialist government of Germany in WW II is the biggest blackest lie in history".

"You lose virtually everything that you run for. You couldn't win dog catcher". In order to qualify as a Republican candidate in the race, Jones had to submit a petition with 603 signatures from voters in his district supporting his candidacy to the Illinois State Board of Elections.

Luckily, Jones is running in Illinois' 3rd district, which has a solid track record of voting Democrat.
