Anti-Semitic Republican Candidate Sails To General Election In California
June 7, 2018
Even without the support of the California Republican Party, an anti-Semitic Republican running in the state’s 11th District northeast of Oakland has advanced to the general election.
John Fitzgerald won 24.8% percent of the vote in Tuesday’s primary, nearly twenty points higher than the third-place candidate and good enough to help him advance to November due to the state’s top-two primary system. He will face Democratic incumbent Rep. Mark DeSaulnier.
Fitzgerald’s campaign website includes false claims that 9% of U.S. government officials are dual citizens of Israel and that Jews played a “prominent role” in the African slave trade, and celebrates a “courageous” elderly German woman who was sentenced to two years in prison for denying the Holocaust.
“Why is the holocaust the ONLY historical issue that cannot be questioned without fear of fines and/or imprisonment in eighteen countries–and counting– throughout the world?” Fitzgerald wrote on May 16.
And this GOP congressional candidate thinks “diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American”.
