A Republican candidate for Congress from Illinois has denied that the Holocaust ever occurred, regional newspaper the Oaklawn Patch
reported on Wednesday.
“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Arthur Jones, 64, was quoted by the Patch
as saying. Jones, an insurance salesman from Lyons, Illinois, is a Republican candidate seeking to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.According to the regional newspaper, Jones referred to the Holocaust as "the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV. The more survivors, the more lies that are told." Read full story here.
