Illinois GOP Rep. Art Jones Denies Holocaust

Illinois Republican Congressman Art Jones is denying the Holocaust and I’m not kidding.

The Holocaust was the result of Adolph Hitler’s “Final Solution” to what he saw as the “Jewish Problem”.

 Auschwitz in Poland (pictured above) was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was the largest of the German concentration camps, consisting of Auschwitz I (the Stammlager or base camp); Auschwitz II–Birkenau (the Vernichtungslager or extermination camp); Auschwitz III–Monowitz, also known as Buna–Monowitz (a labor camp); and 45 satellite camps.

The camp’s first commandant, Rudolf Höss, testified after the war at the Nuremberg Trials that up to three million people had died there (2.5 million gassed, and 500,000 from disease and starvation). Today the accepted figure is 1.3 million, around 90 percent of them Jewish. Others deported to Auschwitz included 150,000, 23,000 and, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, some 400 Jehovah’s Witnesses and tens of thousands of people of diverse nationalities. Those not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation, forced labor, infectious disease, individual executions, and medical experiments.

Now we have Art Jones, from the Illinois 3rd Congressional District saying this never ever happened that, according to once again to the Oak Lawn Patch;    “As far as I’m concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews. It’s the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays, and TV.” He then goes on to say, “The more survivors, the more lies that are told.”

If there was no Holocaust, how can there be survivors? My Grandfather served in the Army during World War 2 and helped liberate one of the camps. I never found out which one and the few times he would even mention it he was drunk. All he would say was the camps were horrible. My wife, when she was stationed in Germany also got to see one of the death camps.

Holocaust deniers will state the “ovens” were for the burning of garbage and no one was killed at the camps. If anything, those who did die was through old age or illness. Must Holocaust deniers are Neo-Nazis although they also have the Iranian Prime Minister in their corner to boot.

The article goes on to say, he was a member of the Nationalist Socialist Party in his younger days, Jones took part in the Nazis’ march on Chicago’s Marquette Park in 1978. While he doesn’t deny nor repudiate his “past affiliations,” he says he votes Republican “90 percent of the time. Philosophically, I’m a National Socialist,” Jones said. “Officially, I don’t belong to any party except my own, the America First Committee.”

Jones compares today’s conditions in the United States to Germany following the end of World War I. “Our country is falling apart economically, politically, culturally, militarily,” he said. “We are going down.” A veteran of the Vietnam War with all of its modern horrors, he sees the same betrayal in the “so-called War on Terrorism.” “These war-mongering fools in congress like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney—we can’t let Iran have one nuclear weapon but we let Israel have all the nuclear weapons they want,” Jones said. “This is ridiculous.”

Jones hopes three’s a charm after blowing his retirement savings on two prior congressional runs. He hopes to win the Republican primary and go on to challenge Lipinski this November. The 3rd District covers portions of Chicago’s South Side and a large swath of the south suburbs.

Part of the reason he’s jumping in again is what he describes as Lipinski’s strange affiliation with the American Israel Pro Israel Affairs Committee.

“(The committee) was bragging on their website how (Lipinski) is ‘spearheading’ the effort in the House of Representatives with a Jewish congressman from Virginia named Frank Wolf,” Jones said. “The two are spearheading an effort in the House to get tough with Iran, including closing off any oil exports to China that could lead to World War III.”

While Jones said Wolf was Jewish, he is Presbyterian.

The Republican party is becoming the party of jesters, but we must educate ourselves about people such as Art Jones.

    My father’s brother was an army chaplain in WWII and worked with former prisoners who were liberated from Dachau. He had photos from the liberation that he took himself. My family had no reason to doubt or deny what happened, and no reason to pay attention to people like Jones. From what I was able to find, however, Jones lost the Republican primary for the 3rd district, coming in third with 11% of the vote (a total of 3,861).

    I have no idea how old Jones is (Mr. Lipinski, the incumbent, is 46), but if he had any immediate family members who served in Europe at the close of the war, he might have different opinions. Many of the people I grew up with did have ETO vets in their lives, and none of us would share Jones’ view.

    I visited Dachau several times while stationed in Germany. It is something I will never forget and those idiots who think the Holocaust is a lie are brain dead, and Art Jones is one of them.

    President Dwight David Eisenhower,Five Star General and the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expedition Forces ETO in WWII ordered the filming of the liberated death camps. He believed that the scope of the cruelty and the horror would be difficult for people to comprehend and in time some may even denied it occurred.
