Two US Republican contenders embrace social taboos

    Arthur Jones is a Holocaust denier who is poised to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat, AlJazeera reported.

    The Illinois Republican Party has however disavowed Jones, because “there is no room for Neo-Nazis in American politics”.

    In Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, has decried total Jewish control of the media, Nehlen will be challenging a Republican incumbent for a seat later this year. He will be competing against House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    Nehlen announced on Friday that his campaign hired Kevin MacDonald as its spokesperson, a former professor at California State University, Long Beach.

    Paul Nehlen said in a statement that he reached out to MacDonald “after reading some of Dr. MacDonald’s work”. His current campign spokesman, Josh Smith, called MacDonald “a legend”.

    MacDonald edits the websites Occidental Observer and The Political Cesspool.

    According to the Anti-Defamation League, MacDonald authored a series of books arguing that Jews were “a hostile elite” in the US whose goal is to “destroy a European heritage”.

    Nehlen is also the leader of the American Freedom Party, aiming “to restore and preserve the legitimacy of White identity, White heritage, and expressions of White interests,” according to the ADL.

    MacDonald has blamed Jewish interests for promoting immigration from non-European countries, and he has said that Jewish people lack the “moral idealism” of Europeans.

    Nehlen has voiced support for the preservation of a white-majority country, saying that it was “right and righteous” to do so.

    “I think that we [white people] have built wonderful civilisations in northern Europe and around the world,” Nehlen told a radio show audience. “And if it weren’t for our leadership, many more people would’ve died over the course of history.”

    Cas Mudde, author of The Far Right in America, says he sees no “cause for concern” in the candidacies of Jones and Nehlen.

    Mudde, an associate professor in the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Georgia, told Al Jazeera: “They don’t necessarily see the GOP as sharing their views, but they do believe the base is open to them.”

    But in January, John Abarr, who has actively organised and recruited for the KKK, announced his candidacy as a Democrat in Montana for the House of Representatives.

    His platform includes policy prescriptions describing how “European Americans” were the target of systemic discrimination while his website states his continued support for “pride and dignity for whites”.
