Like most White Nationalists, I was looking forward to seeing John McCain defeated in the Arizona Republican Primary. McCain tried for years to shove “comprehensive immigration reform” down our throats in the Senate.
Hatred of John McCain led many White Nationalists to support the J.D. Hayworth campaign. In this case, we seem to have made the mistake of fighting the last war. We assumed that a triumphant Hayworth would be better at representing our interests than the chastened McCain.
A few days ago, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu appeared as a guest on The Political Cesspool. He was quickly attacked by the SPLC and Media Matters. After getting scalped by leftwing Arizona newspapers with “racism” accusations, the gutless Babeu fell on his knees and swiftly issued an embarrassing public apology.
Babeu has made news in Arizona by swaggering around with McCain in the famous “complete the danged fence” political ad in which he claims that McCain “is one of us” and will get tough on illegal immigration.
In his first campaign ad, J.D. Hayworth calls John McCain a “sell out” who embraces “character assassination” to keep his job. Unlike McCain, Hayworth claims to be a “principled conservative.”
In the final days of the campaign, it seems that J.D. Hayworth isn’t above a little character assassination of his own. He is attacking James Edwards of The Political Cesspool:
“McCain’s biggest pitch man is on the radio praising the show and calling the host of Political Cesspool a ‘great American.” McCain needs to renounce the Sheriff, pull the ads and make it clear that this is not the type of campaigning he endorses.”
The McCain campaign responded:
“It’s unfortunate that Congressman Hayworth — who frequently complains that liberals unfairly paint opponents of illegal immigration as racists — would add his voice to a smear campaign driven by liberal blogs to attack a respected sheriff fighting on the front lines in Arizona’s battle against drug and human smuggling.”
I thought we were supposed be cheering for J.D. Hayworth to beat John McCain, but it is J.D. Hayworth who is echoing SPLC talking points and saying that White Nationalists like James Edwards are beyond the pale. Ironically, it is the McCain campaign that is attacking the ritual shaming going on here.
Granted, John McCain has an awful record on immigration. He is a worthless politician. But it is also true that McCain’s love affair with Hispanics was based on his crushed presidential ambitions.
‘You people — you people made your choice. You made your choice during the election.’
“He was angry,” one source said. “He was over the top. In some cases, he rolled his eyes a lot. There were portions of the meeting where he was just staring at the ceiling, and he wasn’t even listening to us. We came out of the meeting really upset.”
McCain will almost certainly beat Hayworth in August. Now that Hayworth has disgraced himself with this political cheap shot, proving that he is a moral coward and unscrupulous political opportunist, I won’t regret his loss. It might even work out better for us.
Better the devil you know than the one you don’t.
