Random Thought

There are at least 20,000 people in the state of Illinois who are not only okay with a Nazi running for Congress, they actually made the effort to vote for him.

I seriously think we need to make an effort to encourage people like Arthur Jones to run for office.  That way we’ll eliminate the dog whistles and the wink-wink nudge-nudge that racists and anti-Semites used to sneak into office.  Let’s have them heil their way out onto the stage of American politics so we at least know they’re out there.

One bark on “Random Thought

  1. One corollary to the Nazi running unopposed in IL-3 is that Dan Lipinski, who claims to be a Democrat, won his primary against a real Democrat. I’ve seen it speculated that Trump supporters felt free to cross over and vote for Lipinski. (Illinois has open primaries.)

    Which just goes to show you what a mixed bag the Chicago area is — my district (IL-9), which is the North Lake Shore in Chicago and the northern suburbs, is so blue it’s indigo.
