It takes some doing to be rejected by a political party packed to the rafters with fat, gun-loving Christian bigots, but Russell Walker, 75, has just managed to lose the support of the Republicans in North Carolina.
Walker has his eyes on the prize of a seat in District 48 of the The North Carolina General Assembly.
But he ran into difficulties this week when he was judged to be too deranged to warrant official Republican Party support.
Walker won the Republican primary in May this year for the seat, but when some of his racist and anti-Semitic statements surfaced the Republicans took fright.
Representative John Szoka said in a statement on Wednesday:
The North Carolina Republican House Caucus and our members will not support Mr Walker’s campaign given his comments and actions. While Mr Walker won the Republican primary, his rhetoric and actions have no place in the Republican Party, and he should strongly consider withdrawing his candidacy.
A pathetic little website that Walker claims to own includes essays that say God is a racist white supremacist and Jews are descended from Satan. He has authored multiple essays and other articles on the site.
An article on the site written by Walker also says that:
He also claimed:
All Jews are the children of Satan. Cain being the first Jew as a result of Satan raping Eve in the Garden of Eden and Cain being the first seed of Satan.
The IRS and most other ‘taxing’ systems of the world are controlled by and are just an appendage of Jewish institutions. In the case of the United States it is the Federal Reserve Bank, one of many Rothschild-controlled central banks. The Federal Reserve Bank is owned by 9 European jewish banks, all ultimately being Rothschild controlled.
The Rothschilds, a historically wealthy Jewish family, have been the subject of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories since the mid-1800s.
In 2017, Walker filed a lawsuit in South Carolina to have Confederate flags and portraits of Confederate generals remain in the main courtroom of the York County Courthouse. A judge threw out the case, saying Walker had no standing to bring the lawsuit because he was a North Carolina resident.
The home page for Walker’s campaign website features a photo of him with a white mule titled “My little white ass and me”. The post also says:
I have been given an ‘A’ rating by the NRA and am supported by at least two other pro-gun (pro-people) organizations.
What he terms his “Populist Platform” includes calls to “End Compulsory Fascist Auto and Moped Insurance”, “End compulsory vaccinations”, “Allow convicted felons to serve on juries” and to “Make English the official State language.”
In November, Walker will challenge state Representatove Garland Pierce, a Democrat who has served in the state House for 14 years.
