TN GOP Campaign Promotes Anti-Semitic Video

The campaign of Republican Mike Sparks (R-TN), Rutherford County Commissioner and candidate for the Tennessee House of Representatives, posted a link on Facebook to a YouTube video promoting anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. The video reportedly warns of Jewish and Marxist conspiracies against the United States and claims that Americans are under attack from “Big Brother tyranny.” In the post, the campaign called the video “prophetic.”

This video is part of a larger trend of Republican and conservative leaders using Marxism, socialism, and conspiracy theories to scare voters and smear their opponents. This is also part of a trend of Republican candidates using anti-Semitic and abusive Holocaust rhetoric to advance their agendas. As NJDC has repeatedly said in the past, this sort of rhetoric has no place in our political system and should be condemned by all.
