      Republicans Throw Racist New Jersey

      Candidate Under The Bus - Finally

      By Ray Cunneff

      July 11, 2018


      After standing by their racist nominee for agonizing weeks in New Jersey's 2nd Congressional District, the House GOP's campaign committee (NRCC) finally withdrew its backing from Republican Seth Grossman after Media Matters unearthed social media posts in which Grossman favorably linked to hate-filled essays on white supremacist websites.

      An attorney who has at times hosted radio talk shows, Grossman was the GOP nominee for an open seat in the 2nd District, which stretches inland from coastal Atlantic City.*


      "Nobody ever accused me of being a bigot or racist until the

      moment I became a Republican candidate for Congress

      a few weeks ago," said Grossman.


      One typically repugnant passage from a piece that Grossman highlighted:


      "However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different

      by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well.

      They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well.

      They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike."


      In one April 2015 Facebook post, Grossman shared a news article about Muslim migrants throwing Christians overboard from a refugee raft in the Mediterranean and added:


      "This is where 'multi-culturalism' and 'diversity' has taken us."


      While Grossman wriggled when Media Matters asked him for comment, he'd never made any attempt to hide his views. Shortly after he unexpectedly won the GOP primary, audio emerged from an April candidate's forum in which he'd declared:


      "The whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American,"

      calling the concept "an excuse by Democrats, communists, and socialists,

      basically, to say that we're not all created equal."


      It was soon revealed what he believes about Islam ("a cancer"), Kwanzaa ("a phony holiday invented in 1960's by black racists"), and George Soros (akin to Leon Trotsky, who was an "International Communist—and a Jew"), thanks to a series of other online writings uncovered by CNN.


      Under mounting pressure, NRCC Chairman Steve Stivers wrote:


      The campaign committee hopes to find a new candidate quickly. It's a district that Trump won, but experts say is likely to flip to the Democrats in November.

      The GOP has now triaged a seat it's held for decades but waited until maximum embarrassment forced it to avoid promoting an apparent white supremacist.

      It won't be the last time.

                  A North Carolina state House of Representatives candidate who recently won the Republican primary has claimed Jews are Satanic, U.S. soldiers are being poisoned by the government and that God is a white supremacist.
                  Yet despite his deplorable public record, Walker ran unopposed in the GOP primary, and the GOP did nothing to stop the white supremacist from winning the party nomination.

                          From CNN:

                          Prior to running for Congress, Grossman was elected to Atlantic City's City Council and later to the Atlantic County board of freeholders in the 1980's. In 2013, he ran as a primary challenger to then-Gov. Chris Christie, receiving 8% of the vote. He is an attorney in Somers Point, just outside Atlantic City.*

                          Grossman received the endorsement of the National Republican Congressional Committee after he won his primary. He has been an anemic fundraiser compared with his Democratic opponent, Jeff Van Drew.

                          * "Just outside" Atlantic City is a bit misleading. Atlantic City is on Absecon Island along with downbeach communities of Ventnor, Margate and Longport. Somers Point is on the mainland separated by a broad stretch of back bay and marshland.

                              Also from CNN:

                              In June 2015, Grossman shared a meme of an Arab man saying, "All I want to do is move to your country, rape our women, bomb your buses, riot in your streets, and demand that you accept my religion. Why can't you be more tolerant?" and under the meme it said, "share if you understand this is Obama's religion." (When reached for comment, Grossman told CNN, "I do not recall knowingly posting that Barack Obama is a Muslim. My guess is that id (sic) did not notice the language under the meme when I shared it.")

                                  Hey, it takes a long time for them to properly vet candidates...you know how hard it is to run the numbers to figure out if the PR hit makes one of their prospects too Nazi for them? </notcompletelysarcasm>
