[politics] I'm stunned that this is even a question

Seriously, WTF?
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Democratic Party leaders are wondering what to do about a candidate for attorney general who denies the Holocaust occurred and wants to “reawaken white racial awareness.” Larry Darby, the founder of the Atheist Law Center, made an abortive bid for the attorney general job as a Libertarian in 2002, but only recently have his views on race and the Holocaust come to light. [...] In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, Darby said he believes no more than 140,000 Jewish people died in Europe during World War II, and most of them succumbed to typhus. Historians say about 6 million Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis, but Darby said the figure is a false claim of the “Holocaust industry.” Darby said he will speak Saturday near Newark, N.J., at a meeting of National Vanguard, which bills itself as an advocate for the white race. Some of his campaign materials are posted on the group’s Internet site. “It’s time to stop pushing down the white man. We’ve been discriminated against too long,” Darby said in the interview.
"[W]ondering what to do"? About someone who believes in the "Holocaust industry" and who is going to speak at a neo-Nazi conference?!? Dump his ass! There, done, was there a dilemma there somewhere? Jesus Haploid Christ, people - he's a power-seeking lunatic, that's all there is to it. Dump him. Do I think you can change political affiliation over a lifetime? Sure. Do I think it'll happen between election cycles? Well, let's just say that I find that pretty damn convenient - particularly a change from Libertarian to Democrat. He's looking for funding, he's looking for publicity, he's looking for power. Standing behind him out of some misbegotten sense of party loyalty (particularly when he is unlikely to reciprocate) is foolish really fscking stupid; it will damage your credibility far more than pitching his pasty white(-supremacist) ass overboard will.

Well yes but he's a Democrat. Dump him and the Republican might win. That would be bad.

I kid because I love; I want a viable two-party system. Supporting nutjobs is the way to go about doing that.

Unless the Democratic platform has upheld that individual's views...and it has not...then he cannot claim to be a Dem and should be called on it by ever available means...and damned straight, thrown out of the party. Disowned. He's a disgrace. Disgusting creature.

I can only imagine what the AL party's reaction would have been if he was their only candidate running in the primary... I'm afraid that it would have been "well, we can't have a Republican win, so..."

Gaaaah. Sometimes principle is more important, people. It's what I've always asked of political parties (which probably goes a long way to explain my disenchantment with both of them).

Of course, this is what the Libertarians have been dealing with for years...
