GOP Campaign Arm Scrambles To Pull Support From Yet Another Nazi
The Republican Party is racist. They all like to say, “oh, but we aren’t ALL like that!” but they continue to support racist candidates, racist policies, and racist rhetoric. Oh, and let’s not forget that they continue to support the racist squatting in the White House. To that end, it should come as no surprise that the National Republican Congressional Committee – the campaign arm responsible for electing Republican candidates – has been forced to pull support for yet another candidate, this time in New Jersey.
Meet Seth Grossman. He is a man who once held public office in Atlantic County. He also has some rather asinine racist views. This is a man who once said that “the whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap, and un-American,” and used his Facebook feed to link to a white nationalist article that says that black people “are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.” Media Matters has Grossman quoted as saying the following:
“My experience has taught me that we live in a nation in which a jury is more likely to convict a black defendant who has committed a crime against a white. Even the dullest of blacks know this. There would be a lot more black-on-white crime if this were not the case.
However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.”
To that end, once Grossman’s attitudes were exposed, the NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers was forced to say the following:
“Bigotry has no place in society — let alone the U.S. House of RepresentativesThe NRCC withdraws our support of Seth Grossman and calls on him to reconsider his candidacy.”
Ah, Stivers can say what he likes, but the cards are all on the table, and the verdict is in. The Republican Party is the party of white supremacy and Nazism. Further, this Grossman guy is not some fringe candidate who doesn’t have a prayer of winning. He won his primary with three opponents, with these kinds of statements out there. He also garnered support from the Republican Party. Further, he is running to replace retiring GOP Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo. In short, the only reason the GOP is withdrawing support for Grossman is because they now have no choice. Even former Jeb Bush adviser Tim Miller says so:
This person is the GOP nominee in a district that is currently held by a retiring Republican. This is not crazy nazi who is going to get 2% territory. Until Republicans acknowledge the problem this will continue to get worse https://t.co/f2ai7ELCEV

So, there might be a literal, avowed Nazi sitting in Congress soon – and it’s all the GOP’s fault. If you don’t want to be associated with Nazism, stop supporting the GOP.
