Arthur Jones, an insurance salesman, Vietnam war veteran, and former member of the National Socialist Party, says he’s running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois congressional race in hopes of challenging Congressman Dan Lipinski (D) because he has an affiliation with the American Israel Pro Israel Affairs Committee.

Jones, who’s said to have spent his retirement fund on running twice before for the 3rd Congressional District — which includes Chicago’s South Side — is a self-proclaimed National Socialist who denounces the Holocaust and criticizes other politicians’ stances on Israel.

“These war-mongering fools in congress like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney — we can’t let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want, this is ridiculous,” Jones says. OakLawnPatch reports on the story:

A congressional candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois primary says the “Holocaust never happened.”

Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolf Hitler’s birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

“As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews,” Jones said. “It’s 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.”
