New York Republican Jim Russell: Right winger or certifiable Nazi?

New York Republican Jim Russell: Right winger or certifiable Nazi?
Jim Russell.jpg

There have been times when I wanted to label a politician a "Nazi." For obvious reasons I have demurred. That ends today with Republican Congressional candidate Jim Russell. That word actually applies to him.

Jim Russell is running for Congress in New York's 18th District, which is an area just north of New York City with parts of the district bordering on Connecticut. Russell, who is challenging longtime Democratic incumbent, Rita Lowery, has been endorsed by the state's Republican party and the state Conservative party.

In 2001, he wrote an essay titled "The Western Contribution to World History", which was published in the Occidental Quarterly, Russell rallied like-minded people against interracial relationships and school integration. In that essay, he praised anti-Semitic theories. He praised and touted studies linking race to IQ. He has said parents need to teach their children "appropriate ethnic boundaries" for marriage and socializing.

I hate to label anyone a Nazi- but this guy is pretty close.  Here are portions of his 2001 essay, you decide:

(T.S.) Eliot described some conditions for an optimal society: 'The population should be homogeneous. . . . What is still more important is unity of religious background; and reasons of race and culture combine to make any large number of free-thinking Jews undesirable. There must be a proper balance between urban and rural, industrial and agricultural development. And a spirit of excessive tolerance is to be deprecated.'

Kevin MacDonald's (pushed the theory that Jews practice "group-think" to outperform non-Jews) work on religion, and particularly Judaism, as a group evolutionary strategy, is essential for a thorough understanding of our current predicament.

                                                    *              *               *

Despite threats on his life, Arthur Jensen persevered in studying the relationship between IQ and race. In Canada, neither state-sponsored censorship nor private harassment has deterred J. Philippe Rushton's inquiries into Race, Evolution and Behavior. The importance of applying eugenic measures in the West becomes evident from Richard Lynn's recent work on Dysgenics and his just-released seminal work Eugenics: A Reassessment.

                                                  *               *               *

The sociobiological warfare that our youth is subjected to is likely to be even more diabolical since it appears to deliberately exploit a biological theory of sexual imprinting at the critical period of sexual maturity. Movies like this past year's spate of miscegenationist titles, Save the Last Dance, Crazy / Beautiful and O, a parody of Othello, appear deliberately designed to exploit the critical period of sexual imprinting in their target audiences of white pre-adolescent girls and adolescent young women.

                                                *                 *               *

It has been demonstrated that finches raised by foster parents of a different species of finch will later exhibit a lifelong sexual attraction toward the alien species. One wonders how a child's sexual imprinting mechanism is affected by forcible racial integration and near continual exposure to media stimuli promoting interracial contact. The most serious implication of human sexual imprinting for our genetic future is that it would establish the destructiveness of school integration, especially in the middle and high-school years. One can only wonder to what degree the advocates of school integration, such as former NAACP attorney Jack Greenberg, were conscious of this scientific concept. It also compounds the culpability of media moguls who deliberately popularize miscegenation in films directed toward adolescents and pre-adolescents. In the midst of this onslaught against our youth, parents need to be reminded that they have a natural obligation, as essential as providing food and shelter, to instill in their children an acceptance of appropriate ethnic boundaries for socialization and for marriage.


I presume when the state Republican party reads Russell's 2001 essay, it will rethink its endorsement of Jim Russell. While our society allows the Jim Russells out there to speak and write his beliefs, the marketplace of ideas will hopefully find them ridiculous if not shameful. He should be allowed to run for office, but the fact that the state Republican party endorsed him (according to his website) is downright frightening.

  • If you're going to pretend to be a journalist, maybe you can do some research before posting a rant about the Republican party supporting this guy.

    As soon as this paper was brought to light, the GOP withdrew its support. They had no idea that he has penned such a thing and with good reason, it was no longer on the Occidental's site.

    If you had just done your homework, you would know that.

    Blogs are collections of thoughts and opinions. Sometimes on a topic, sometimes not. You don't have to be a journalist to have one. Just because a blog is picked up by a news organization doesn't change that it's a blog. If a person in a blog wants to claim that all politicians are corrupt and only out to serve themselves and alien overlords, and not the public, bloggers can do so and in most cases actually be right. Well, maybe not about the aliens.

    My favorite Blog is a guy who is collecting autographs on every card from the 1983 Fleer set.

    It might be refreshing to see someone like yourself Mr Thomas actually refute the article in question. Moreover, the good folks at The Occidental Quarterly would appreciate your company and thoughts. The same goes for the gutless GOP.

    If you run from this idea or ignore it, it will be safe to say you and your 'kinsmen' in the GOP adhere to this candid statement:

    "We call things racism just to get attention. We reduce complicated problems to racism, not because it is racism, but because it works."

    --- Alfredo Gutierrez, political consultant, as quoted by Richard de Uriarte, The Phoenix Gazette, March 14, 1992 (quoted in The ProEnglish Advocate, 1st quarter, 2002).

  • Passinthru, Thanks for reading, first of all. I did do a bit of homework on this and at the time the post was written, the GOP had not yet denounced Mr. Russell-- it appears that came out today.
    Further, my whole point was that I assumed the party did not know of the essay (please note that the party twice endorsed Mr. Russell) and once it learned of it, I assumed it would take action. Which it did, promptly (the Conservative party, however, has yet to take action).

    To your point, here is what the New York state party spokeman had to say about Mr. Russell's candidacy:

    "There are kooks attracted to any parties. I don't think it has anything to do with the Republican Party. Certainly it has nothing to do with Republican Party principles."

    Alex Carey said GOP leaders were not previously aware of Russell's essay, adding, "We strongly condemn all of Jim's comments and certainly stand by none of what he wrote, which was racist and ethnocentric."

    He said that the chair of the GOP in Westchester County is going to meet with Russell soon, "and if he can explain this somehow they're going to continue looking into this -- and if he can't they'll cut him loose." Carey said that even if the GOP drops Russell from its line on the ballot, he will still be a candidate.

  • A Sense of Peoplehood is not a Pathology.

    It is not racist for a professor such as Alan Dershowitz or for a ex-professor like Jim Russell, who wants to run for congress, to advocate for their ethnic group interests.

    The words for bigotry, that are often used, such as: ant-Semitic, anti-White, anti-Black, anti-Arab, anti-feminist, anti-gay and hundreds of other labels, are for the most part overstated. Instead, it should be seen as pro-White, or pro-Jewish or pro-women or pro-traditional family and not be ashamed of it.


  • Mr. Thomas, you probably are an incompetent lawyer as well.

    If you are going to slur somebody have your facts correct. Didn't Rev. Wright tell you that when you attended his meetings? That's right. We already know.

  • In reply to Rosen:

    Thanks for reading and commenting. Feel free to enlighten me as I haven't checked up on Mr. Russell since I wrote this nearly two years ago. Did he not pen the article quoted from above? If he didn't then I suppose I stand corrected. If these are his words, then I don't see the problem with the post-- here are his words, you (the reader) decide if he's a Nazi.
