A Step Back for Republicans?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Aug. 3, 2004 Republican congressional candidate James L. Hart acknowledges that he is an "intellectual outlaw."

He is an unapologetic supporter of eugenics, the phony science that resulted in thousands of sterilizations in an attempt to purify the white race. He believes the country will look "like one big Detroit" if it doesn't eliminate welfare and immigration. He believes that if blacks were integrated centuries ago, the automobile never would have been invented.

What a nutjob! I sure hope he hasn't reproduced. But it does look as if he doesn't have support from the Republican party, so that is very encouraging. I do hope the write-in candidate (in the Republican primary) wins in a landslide though.

He's a nobody, it won't make an impact on anything.

He shows up at voters' homes wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a gun, and tells them that "white children deserve the same rights as everyone else."

Despite his radical views, Hart may end up winning the Republican nomination because he is the only GOP candidate on the ballot in Thursday's primary. His presence in the campaign has embarrassed Republican leaders, who were blind-sided by Hart after they didn't bother fielding a candidate. Democratic Rep. John Tanner has held the seat for 15 years and is considered safe in November.

Republicans now desperately hope that a write-in candidate will stop Hart.

I think it is safe to say this person? is operating on his own, outside of the GOP.

Yeah it is Al Gore's city, I met him twice while I was there and my dad went to graduate school with him at Vanderbilt.

Ok, I wasn't quite sure...so you can run as a Republican or Democrat etc without the party's consent?

It's still pretty scary if a write in doesn't come in. People will vote for him just because he's the only one labeled Republican.

I don't know if he's a step backwards for Republicans, but he's definitely a step backwards for humanity.

I really hope that doesn't imply what it sounds. This guy's a racist, plain and simple. I know racists that are Democrats, Republicans, whatever. I'm failling to see why this is considered "a step back for Republicans"....

Does anyone else appreciate the subtlety here?

Ah social darwinism and eugenics, you would think that 19th Century Laissez Faire economics and the holocaust may have discredited such ideas, but then according to this goon you would be wrong.

Ignorance in public life is an exponential, when you have a fool in public office the constituency will actually become more ignorant - so dont let him get elected!
