Alabama candidate for AG disputes Holocaust, is coming to NJ

Breaking News

A Democratic candidate for Alabama attorney general denies the Holocaust occurred and said Friday he will speak this weekend in New Jersey to a "pro-white" organization that is widely viewed as being racist.

Larry Darby concedes his views are radical, but he said they should help him win wide support among Alabama voters as he tries to "reawaken white racial awareness" with his campaign against Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson.

The state Democratic chairman, Joe Turnham, said the party became aware of some of Darby's views only days ago and was considering what to do about his candidacy.

"Any type of hatred toward groups of people, especially for political gain, is completely unacceptable in the Alabama Democratic Party," said Turnham.

Speaking in an interview with The Associated Press, Darby said he believes no more than 140,000 Jewish people died in Europe during World War II, and most of them succumbed to typhus.

Now another one. Its bad enough the other 3 to 5 million others killed by those old Testemate christians--the Nazis. Who went after the old scape goats,the Jews, also targeted those very same that are on the Fundimentalist lists today:homosexuals{plus all other deviants from sex for reproduction only},those that don't agree with the prevelant theology & gov't of the time. The only real difference is that people aren't being killed in the Henry Ford kind of mechanical process of modern industry---yet.
Scape goating,re. putting the onus on others and eradicating them,eradicates the problem is primative and useless. A poisonous mixture of hubris,fanatisism,religiosity and anti-humanism.
