CNN's Camerota confronts Holocaust denier running for Congress in heated interview

Arthur Jones, the GOP candidate running for Illinois' 3rd Congressional District, who has been denounced by both the state and national Republican party, told CNN Thursday that he's not a Nazi while he argued his beliefs that the Holocaust didn't happen.

The criticism towards his website set Jones off onto a tirade about the "two party, Jew party" system.

As The Chicago Sun-Times reports, the Republican Party has taken legal steps to get Jones knocked off the ballot in previous elections, but he took extra steps this time to ensure that he couldn't be removed.

As the interview continued, Jones became combative, refusing to let Camerota finish questions.

"Mr. Jones, It is shocking to hear how vocally and unapologetically racist you are", she said after playing a clip of Jones speaking at a Neo-Nazi gathering, "Are you a Nazi?" Jones answered again by claiming he has not been an official member of a National Socialist organization since 1990. "You've run for Congress and you've lost for mayor, for alderman, and we're not in the business of predicting the news, but I can say that you will lose this race".

"You're website is filled with the most vile, rancid rhetoric I think I've ever read", Camerota declared after an opening discussion of whether or not Jones was a Nazi or, in his words, an "American patriot and statesman".

"You've been part of anti-Semitic groups since the 1970s", Camerota responded. He's not unopposed because he's the person the Republican party wants, though.

Camerota listed several pieces of evidence showing Jones' Nazi ties and involvement.

Interviewer Alisyn Camerota, visibly disgusted by Jones and his views, slammed the IL candidate with facts about the Holocaust, as Jones waved papers at her and went on a rant about the "Jew party system". I personally picked out the articles on there because they're true. You "jews" media, you've gone absolutely nuts, you think that Adolf Hitler's revived from the grave or something.

"Yes, I deny the Holocaust". It is an extortion racket, pure and simple.
