This man is judged too crazy to warrant Republican support

This man is judged too crazy to warrant Republican support

It takes some doing to be rejected by a political party packed to the rafters with fat, gun-loving Christian bigots, but Russell Walker, 75, has just managed to lose the support of the Republicans in North Carolina.

Walker has his eyes on the prize of a seat in District 48 of the The North Carolina General Assembly.

But he ran into difficulties this week when he was judged to be too deranged to warrant official Republican Party support.

Walker won the Republican primary in May this year for the seat, but when some of his racist and anti-Semitic statements surfaced the Republicans took fright.

Representative John Szoka said in a statement on Wednesday:

The North Carolina Republican House Caucus and our members will not support Mr Walker’s campaign given his comments and actions. While Mr Walker won the Republican primary, his rhetoric and actions have no place in the Republican Party, and he should strongly consider withdrawing his candidacy.

A pathetic little website that Walker claims to own includes essays that say God is a racist white supremacist and Jews are descended from Satan. He has authored multiple essays and other articles on the site.

An article on the site written by Walker also says that:

All Jews are the children of Satan. Cain being the first Jew as a result of Satan raping Eve in the Garden of Eden and Cain being the first seed of Satan.

He also claimed:

The IRS and most other ‘taxing’ systems of the world are controlled by and are just an appendage of Jewish institutions. In the case of the United States it is the Federal Reserve Bank, one of many Rothschild-controlled central banks. The Federal Reserve Bank is owned by 9 European jewish banks, all ultimately being Rothschild controlled.

The Rothschilds, a historically wealthy Jewish family, have been the subject of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories since the mid-1800s.

In 2017, Walker filed a lawsuit in South Carolina to have Confederate flags and portraits of Confederate generals remain in the main courtroom of the York County Courthouse. A judge threw out the case, saying Walker had no standing to bring the lawsuit because he was a North Carolina resident.

The home page for Walker’s campaign website features a photo of him with a white mule titled “My little white ass and me”. The post also says:

I have been given an ‘A’ rating by the NRA and am supported by at least two other pro-gun (pro-people) organizations.

What he terms his “Populist Platform” includes calls to “End Compulsory Fascist Auto and Moped Insurance”, “End compulsory vaccinations”, “Allow convicted felons to serve on juries” and to “Make English the official State language.”

In November, Walker will challenge state Representatove Garland Pierce, a Democrat who has served in the state House for 14 years.

    Republican Ted Cruz has announced that Illinois voters should vote Democratic rather than vote for Republican Arthur Jones, a former American Nazi Party leader.

    They’re upping their standards, so up yours!

    He is crazy. Driven mad by ignorance and religion. The USA has rising suicide levels – far higher than Europe. Montana is out of sight.

    What could possibly be the cause? Harley Davison motor cycles are being hit hard by retaliation to Trumps policies. The workers are restless. Some still think Trump will produce the goods eventually as he is a businessman. Oh yeh! Don’t hold your breath.

    @ Broga: Unless you haven’t already done so, I recommend reading Kurt Vonnegut’s 2005 collection of essays, A Man Without a Country. George W Bush was President then. Here’s an extract:

    “In case you haven’t noticed, as the result of a shamelessly rigged election in Florida, in which thousands of African Americans were arbitrarily disenfranchised, we now present ourselves to the rest of the world as proud, grinning, jut-jawed, pitiless war-lovers with appalling powerful weaponry – who stand unopposed.

    “In case you haven’t noticed, we are now as feared and hated all over the world as the Nazi’s once were.

    “And with good reason.

    “In case you haven’t noticed, our unelected leaders have dehumanized millions and millions of human beings simply because of their religion and race. We wound ’em and kill ’em and torture ’em and imprison ’em all we want.

    “Piece of cake …

    “Our president is a Christian? So was Adolf Hitler.

    Thanks Barry. I will read that. Trump is beyond contempt and so are those who keep him in power.

    Make no mistake, most Republicans don’t disagree with this man. They just don’t feel comfortable openly supporting his brazenly bigoted speech…yet.

  6. Laura Roberts says:

    I read recently that Trump currently enjoys a 42% approval rating. That’s not 4.2%, as in the lunatic fringe; that’s 42% — nearly half of the Americans you’ve ever met. I’m suspicious of approval ratings, but at this point, any number beyond single digits is a serious indictment of the American electorate.

    It was the GOP that openly embraced torture back in 2001. I still remember watching CNN in horror as conservatives spoke glibly about “having the stomach” for torture, far more interested in exacting revenge on (possibly innocent) captives than in obtaining the truth about 9/11. I shudder to think what will happen when the GOP faithful decide that torturing poor, non-white asylum-seekers is acceptable.

    These attitudes comprise naked, unadulterated cowardice in its ugliest form. America should be ashamed of its behaviour since 2001, but its reputation may never recover from the current spate of loathsome cruelty.

    Broga.
    There is no “European suicide rate”. It’s a continent.

    12 countries in Europe have higher suicide rates, including atheist (by slight majority) Sweden, and Finland.

    If Adolf was a Christian, what church did he go to? He believed in the vague Vorsehung (Providence).
