White Supremacists who are running for office

Huffington Post published this list of open neo-Nazi and white supremacists running for office.

HuffPo includes a number of assholes who are also white-supremacy-adjacent, as well. Some cowards simply use the dog-whistles and encourage the ideas of racism, while not posting photos of themselves in SS-esque outfits complaining about Jewish folk.

Via HuffPo:

There are at least three white supremacists currently running for Congress, and a fourth running for a state House seat. Two other candidates — one of whom can unambiguously be called a white supremacist, and one who has ties to white supremacist groups but denies being a white supremacist himself — announced runs for public office, but have since dropped out of their respective races.

Still more Republican candidates, many of whom are running for re-election, have used white supremacist slogans, invited white supremacists to official government events, or granted interviews to racist or anti-Semitic publications.

It’s important to identify these candidates, not only so people know who’s on their ballot, but because ― as we’ve seen ― someone who’s thought of as fringe one year can be in the White House the next.

Donald Trump will not condemn the terrorist attacks on anti-Nazi protestors

"No President": the despair, fear, and resolve of the next four years

People who voted for Trump knew their shot at the elites was fired through the guts of their neighbors
