Blake Masters Approvingly Quoted Hermann Goering

The Jewish Insider reports:

In 2006, Masters penned an article for an obscure libertarian publication in which he referenced a “poignant quotation” from Nazi leader Hermann Goering, while citing a noted conspiracy theorist who has suggested that an infamous antisemitic tract “accurately” describes “much of what is happening in our world.”

The essay was published on the eponymous website of a controversial libertarian author and think tank leader named Lew Rockwell, who is alleged to have ghostwritten a series of bigoted newsletters for former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) in the late 1980s and early ’90s. The site, founded in 1999, describes itself as “anti-state,” “anti-war” and “pro-market.”

Among his main “sources,” Masters says in a parenthetical at the beginning of the piece, is G. Edward Griffin’s The Creature from Jekyll Island, a conspiracy-laden polemic — published in 1994 and widely revered in die-hard libertarian circles — that calls for the abolishment of the Federal Reserve.

The New York Times reports:

Masters, a Republican candidate for the Senate in Arizona who won the endorsement of former President Donald J. Trump, has been dogged by a trail of youthful writings in which he lamented the entry of the United States into the First and Second World Wars, approvingly quoted a Nazi war criminal and pushed an isolationism that extended beyond even Mr. Trump’s.

As he had in other forums, Mr. Masters wrote on the CrossFit chat room that he opposed American involvement in both world wars — although World War II, he conceded, “is harder to argue because of the hot button issue of the Holocaust (nevermind that our friend Stalin murdered over twice as many as Hitler … why do we gloss over that in schools?).”

Mr. Masters has also been denounced for contemporary statements, like his April 11 remark that America’s gun violence problem boiled down to “Black people, frankly,” and his apparent embrace of the “replacement theory” promulgated by white supremacists when he accused Democrats of trying to flood the nation with immigrants “to change the demographics of our country.”

Masters last appeared on JMG when he was “strongly endorsed” by fugitive Nazi leader Andrew Anglin. Last month he called for overturning the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

And here I thought the “hot button issue” for the US entering World War II was . . .
Pearl Harbor (and Manila).

So, if the right doesn’t care about pronouns, they’d be OK with being referred to with the wrong ones? Cause, gotta say, she seems like a nazi.

Quite the dangerous douchebag, aren’t they? “Yeah, let’s give Nazis a platform and power. What could go wrong?!”

I can’t believe Jarvanka are just quietly going along with this business of Trump endorsing literal nazis. But I guess it’s that they-got-theirs-so-screw-everybody-else phenomenon so common among the GOP. Exhibit A: Richard Grenell.

You wont see this in the regular media. They wont touch the Nazis and white nationalist. Its only sites like this and others similar that are trying to get out this info while “mainstream” media focuses on bullshit and fluff
