Patrick Little's Senate campaign against incumbent Diane Feinstein failed in April. Now Little is reportedly taking his message of antisemitism and white nationalism to North Idaho, where he claims he plans to establish a "regional capital" intended to fight "the nation-wrecking plans of leftists and their Jewish controllers who aim to ruin people forever."

Little espoused his message of hate and segregation via robocalls he allegedly left on the voicemails of residents of Sandpoint, Idaho. Playing in the background is The Rembrandts' hit 1995 single "I'll Be There for You," otherwise known as the theme song of sitcom "Friends."

"America has a Jewish problem," a chipper Little says to begin the call, audio of which was obtained by the Spokesman-Review. He goes on to announce his plans to make Sandpoint "one of my new regional capitals throughout the country" when he arrives in mid-August.

Little then says he is traveling around the nation to engage "with folks on the problems we face and how to solve them together as the extended family our European people are." He finishes by touting North Idaho's "pioneer spirit of hard work, family values, common sense and fighting off the nation-wrecking plans of leftists — and their Jewish controllers who aim to ruin our people forever."

On his website, Little describes himself as a "Mainer by birth, a husband by choice, an experienced IT engineer" and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan. He did not return messages seeking comment.

The California Republican Party denounced Little and removed from a party convention in May. Throughout his failed campaign, Little espoused antisemitic and white nationalist views, advocating for the removal of Jewish people from the United States and the establishment of all-white "continuity zones."

Little placed 12th in the June primary, claiming on his website that the sharp loss was a result of vote rigging.

In an email to Snopes, California Republic Party spokesperson Matt Fleming said Little has never been an active party member.

"I do not know Mr. Little and I am not familiar with his positions," he told the rumor debunking website. "But in the strongest terms possible, we condemn antisemitism 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."
