Anti-Semitic U.S. Senate Candidate: 'With Jews We Lose'

By Julissa Catalan

A racist, anti-Semitic write-in candidate for U.S. Senate is campaigning in Kentucky using the slogan, “With Jews We Lose.”

Robert Ransdella Florence, Ky., nativehas a history of racist and anti-Semitic behavior in his home state as well as in Ohio.

“I believe that there is no such thing as racial equality. You see that in our cities everyday,” he said.

In 2009, the student newspaper at Northern Kentucky University ran an advertisement placed by Ransdell for a website selling white-supremacist music. The paper later pulled the ad and apologized.

At the time, Ransdell was identified as the Cincinnati coordinator for The National Alliancea white-nationalist, anti-Semitic and white-separatist group.

The organization’s slogan is “Toward a New Consciousness; a New Order; a New People,” while the news site’s tagline is “News for White People By White People.”

Earlier this year, Ransdell spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Florence.

“That is one thing you guys love to say: ‘It is 2014, how can these racists be out here'” the Cincinnati Enquirer quoted Randsell as saying. “Well, it is 2014. It has been six or seven decades since white people stood up for themselves and it is about time we start doing so.”

Ransdell recently revealed his plan to increase his visibility via a post on a white-supremacist website.

“I am absolutely chomping at the bit going forward with my campaign, only about a month until I am on the air, mainstream radio, primed to start a legitimate ‘conversation’ about race, as in a racially conscious white man letting loose on the problems we face, that so many of our people are beginning to wake up to,” he wrote.

Ransdell told WLWT-TV that as a write-in candidatemeaning his name will not be on the ballothe did not expect to beat incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell or Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, but the campaign exposure gives him the opportunity to spread his message.

“Online we have had a lot of positive feedback. Like I said, we’re going to find out what kind of feedback we get once we go out and take it to the people here in the state of Kentucky,” Ransdell said in a phone interview with the Cincinnati station.

Currently, Ransdell has posted 20 campaign signs in Northern Kentucky and he says he hopes to have 200 more posted within the next few weeks.
