Literal Nazi Running for GOP Congress Seat for Attention, and It's Working

Arthur Jones, a holocaust denier, anti-Semite, white supremacist and all around lunatic is set to become the Republican nominee for an IL congressional seat near Chicago - and appeared on CNN to defend himself.

"It is shocking to hear how vocally unapologetic you are about your racism", Camerota told Jones.

Instead, the reviled figure called himself an "American patriot and statesman" as he slammed the Holocaust in a freakish, confrontational interview.

Displeased with his treatment on New Day, Jones said he called a producer for Cooper's show after the interview and told her he planned to cancel his appearance. "You are part of the white people's party, you dress in Nazi garb and you celebrate Hitler's birthday".

"You deny the Holocaust", Camerota noted. And just in case you were wondering if the interview went off the rails, it did - so much that Camerota predicted Jones would "go down in flames".

After pointing out that his website was filled with "the most vile, rancid rhetoric" the host had ever read, Jones defended everything he says on his official page.

"I do not belong to any formal national socialist organization anymore". There's nothing on that website that's not true. "You news media, you've gone absolutely nuts, you think that Adolf Hitler raised from the grave or something", he said.

The Republican Party has condemned Jones, but he will likely clinch the nomination.

"Yes, I deny the Holocaust". "It's an extortion racket, pure and simple".

Asked why he consented to the interview, Jones said he was promised a fair conversation during which he could express his views, which happen to include a belief that the Holocaust was an "international extortion racket by the Jews".

While Jones continued on his breathless rant against Holocaust survivors, Camerota shot back with the facts, before assuring him that his political run would end in failure.

"You have a long track record of losing", she firmly said. You've run for Congress and you've lost, for mayor, for alderman. "You couldn't win dog catcher", Camerota said. "I can't help it if you don't want to accept the truth", he retorts. "We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office, including the 3rd Congressional District". In order to qualify as a Republican candidate in the race, Jones had to submit a petition with 603 signatures from voters in his district supporting his candidacy to the Illinois State Board of Elections.
