Fringe GOP Candidate Says He's Not Anti-Semitic, Tries to Prove It With This Bizarre Move

What happened?

Paul Nehlen, a GOP congressional candidate challenging House Speaker Paul in Wisconsin, has been under fire for his fringe views and tweets that are seen as anti-Semitic and/or racist. He decided to put an end to the criticism … by tweeting a list of verified Twitter users he claims have “attacked” him in the past month, categorizing each as a “Jew” or a “non-Jew.”

Who thought that was a good idea?

Nehlen and … no one else, probably. He was supported by former White House adviser Steve Bannon and Breitbart News when he ran against Ryan in the 2016 GOP primary, but even Breitbart pulled away after Nehlen appeared on a white supremacist podcast in December.

“‘Swindler’s List’? Paul Nehlen just went full-blown Nazi and it’s ‘effing INSANE’” was Twitchy’s take, while the Daily Wire reported, “Anti-Semite Paul Nehlen Makes List of Jews. Internet Destroys Him.”

Glenn’s take:

A simple pro-tip from Glenn on today’s show: “Don’t make a list of Jewish enemies, or any other list of enemies based on, you know, ethnic background.”

People like Nehlen have always existed, but unfortunately, now they have social media to help them spew hate.

“This guy’s a flameout,” Glenn said. “He is grasping for anything to help him keep afloat as he aims for Ryan’s House seat again this year.”

GLENN: I got a quick general tip for life. I think it's universal. Don't make a list of Jewish enemies or any other list of enemies based on, you know, ethnic background. Just a bad idea. Never really works out well.

Yesterday, former congressional candidate Paul Neilan, the guy who lost overwhelmingly to Paul Ryan in the 2016 Wisconsin Republican primary blamed Jews for attacking his America first positions. He used Twitter to post a spreadsheet of the names including whether the person is a Jew or not.

Really, very -- no, it's classy. He claims to have received 81 personal attacks on Twitter in the last month. Wow, only 81! I mean, whoa.

Of those 81 Twitter attackers, he said, 74 are Jewish. Which can only mean one thing, of course, say it with me. Vast Jewish conspiracy.

STU: Conspiracy.

GLENN: Right. To ruin the popularity that Neilan thinks he has. It could also be that Neilan just hates Jews.

By the way, his research pretty much sucks. As it turns out, several people on his list weren't actually Jewish. Which, huh, who would have thunk it. You know, maybe Mr. Neilan hasn't gotten the calipers out and measured people's heads. So that could be.

He also posted charts of photos of people who work at CNN, NBC, New York Times, NPR, Fox News, complete with Stars of David on their photo to point out the Jews.

He said that Twitter made him delete those photos. He's trying to portray himself as a victim of censorship and oppression.

Look, I believe in the freedom of speech. You can say what you want. Even this kind of speech is abhorrent. There's always been people like Neilan, and there always will be. The difference now is they have this megaphone of social media. So the question is, why engage with a guy like this?

He's spewing hate. You know, people just can't take it. They want to fight back. But you're never going to win the argument. You're not going to change his mind. Pointing out that he sounds kind of like a 1930's Nazi isn't going to suddenly make Neilan say, oh, you know what, I kind of do sound like a Nazi. Oh, I didn't know about that. I should reevaluate my belief of Jews.

This guy is a flameout. He is a flameout politician. He is grasping for anything to help him keep afloat as he aims for Ryan's House seat again this year.

You have to keep an eye on people like this, especially when organizations like Breitbart gave him his own column for a while.

Don't help him trend on Twitter. He's a former darling of Steve Brannon and Breitbart. He is part of the whole psycho alt-right white nationalist fringe that guys like Bannon have been trying to bring under the wing of the Republican Party. These guys are crackpots. They're dangerous.

But the left would love America, to think those crackpots are part of mainstream conservative thought. They're not.

Conservatives and Republicans, you can't run fast enough from people like Paul Neilanand the alt-right.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
