Snopes: Is a Neo-Nazi Running as a Republican for the U.S. Senate in California?

Mod: Apparently that answer is yes. And if the polls are right, Patrick Little is currently running in second place behind incumbent Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, and will likely advance to November's general election as the Republican nominee.

Is a Neo-Nazi Running as a Republican for the U.S. Senate in California? (Snopes link): Patrick Little has repeatedly expressed white supremacist views in his campaign, including calling for a United States "free from Jews."

California’s 2018 U.S. Senate election attracted nationwide attention in April 2018, not long after the publication of a poll showing that little-known Republican and committed neo-Nazi Patrick Little had 18 percent of support among likely primary election voters, second to incumbent Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein with 39 percent.

In the SurveyUSA poll, Little — who describes himself as a “white nationalist” — had greater support than four other candidates in the state’s open primary, which candidates of any party (or none) can enter. These included outgoing California Senate President Kevin de Léon, a Democrat, and businessman Rocky de la Fuente, a Republican.

If those poll numbers were to hold, Feinstein and Little would advance from the primary as the two top candidates and contest the general election in November. The Republican party would be represented in a national race by a candidate who advocates a future United States “free from Jews” and has repeatedly and unreservedly expressed anti-semitic and white nationalist views during his campaign.

On 28 April 2018, Newsweek (link) reported on the California primary and included a quote from one of Little’s social media profiles in which he advocated removing and barring Jewish people from the United States.

We received several enquiries from readers about the authenticity of these statements. They are authentic quotations. On his account with the social network Gab, Little made the following statement:

I propose a government that makes counter-semitism central to all aims of the state. A government:

1) Of a People, for that people, free from jews

2) That cannot revoke the right to bear arms, such that this people can remain free from jews

3) that forbids all immigration except of biological kin, where no person of jewish origin may live, vacation, or traverse

He has also espoused anti-semitic conspiracy theories, called for racial segregation (white people migrating to all-white “continuity zones” in the United States), and even appeared to threaten the extermination of Jewish people who refuse to voluntarily vacate their government employment.

In an e-mail response to our enquiries, California Republican Party spokesperson Matt Fleming told us:

Mr. Little has never been an active member of our party. I do not know Mr. Little and I am not familiar with his positions. But in the strongest terms possible, we condemn anti-semitism and any other form of religious bigotry, just as we do with racism, sexism or anything else that can be construed as a hateful point of view. 

Little is the third Republican candidate for national office during the 2018 electoral cycle to have expressed openly anti-semitic and racist views.

In March, former American Nazi Party leader Arthur Jones ran unopposed in the GOP primary for Illinois’ Third U.S. Congressional District, and will represent the party in November’s general election.

In Wisconsin’s First U.S. Congressional District, one of the Republicans seeking to replace retiring House leader Paul Ryan in November is Paul Nehlen, who has described himself as “pro-white” and frequently expresses virulently anti-semitic sentiments on social media.

In February 2018, Nehlen was permanently banned from Twitter after posting a racist cartoon in reference to the actor Meghan Markle — whose mother is black — after her engagement to Prince Harry was announced.

Mod: I don't know what more proof anyone needs that the Republican Party is for all intents and purposes dead in California.

    2. No, what he's doing the employing is the standard GOP ploy of of the last 30 years by identifying his own worst traits and accusing Dems/Libs/Progs of having them.

      7:00 identifies with Nazi's so he calls a Prog a Hitler wannabe. And he probably believes it. People like him are not the deepest thinkers, so if a thought pops into his head, he believes it must be true.

  7. Patrick Little may be running on the Republican ticket, does NOT reflect the values of conservatives.
    Only calls attention to the fact that the Republican and or Conservative party are all inclusive.
    The Democrat party never has open itself up for any alternative canadiates, very one sided.
    National debates same thing, there is no choice on the Progressive ticket, if you want to have representation free of
    being peg holed, the Conservative. party is not a party of prejudice.
    Historically Abraham Lincoln freed those in slavery. President Lincoln was a Republican, the Conservative party.

    1. A Nazi is an " alternative candidate?" And nominating a Nazi for US Senator makes the GOP "inclusive?" How does a Hitler fan boy like this idiot practice his inclusivity? By deporting Jews to Israel? Herding African Americans into camps? Holy crap.

    2. 7:36 How's the weather in St Petersburg, Comrade?

      7:36 employs the standard Foxnews/Russian troll false equivalence. By embracing odious viewpoints, Repubs/Conservatives are somehow more inclusive and therefore better than those who reject odious views.

      Historically, he's, of course, incorrect because the so-called party of Lincoln is no more. It was overrun by DIxiecrats who fled the increasingly progressive Democratic Party to join the "inclusive" Repubs, who now openly embrace the bigotry and racism. But 7:36 already knows that. He's just expressing the current Repubs' modus operandi: lie, lie, lie.

  8. These Hitler Nazi minded people that are anti-Semitic will be anti-every color of skin when they get in office. In the 40's and 50's these sick people would have been dealt with swiftly. In fact, these Nazi minds would have stayed in the closet. So the way I look at it these people are coming out of the Trump closet because they can now get away with it. Thank you Trump for helping root out all the sick minds. Can't we all just get along?

    1. You are correct, 7:41, except for the last sentence, which I take as irony.

      We can't get along with Nazi bigots and racists. They will never change so the best course of action is to marginalize them educationally, economically, socially, and politically.

      Their general vacuity and laziness help with the first ("don't need no book learnin'" "colleges are full of libruls") which leads to the second (changing economic conditions leave them behind).

      It's up to everyone else to ensure that they're marginalized socially and politically. They really have nothing to offer except hate.
