JD Hayworth Continues His Christ-Killer Outreach Program (Wonkette)

Last summer, fat JD Hayworth, a red-faced Republican from Arizona, tried to rehabilitate Henry Ford's xenophobic, anti-Semitic vision of "Americanization." Needless to say, the Jews in JD's district were most displeased, so JD tried to make nice by sending an emnissary to address the local Temple. Our story continues [via Wonkette]

Unable to defend his repeated praise of Henry Ford’s anti-Semitic “Americanization” program, U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth bailed on a scheduled campaign appearance Tuesday evening only to send in his place surrogates who repeatedly lectured the audience at Temple Beth Israel in Scottsdale and proclaimed that Hayworth “is a more observant Jew” than those present. [DB: Note JD is, in fact, a Baptist.]

The comment by Jonathan Tratt, a spokesman for the Hayworth campaign, drew loud and angry boos and caused nearly three-quarters of the crowd of more than 200 to walk out in disgust. After the walkout, another Hayworth surrogate, Irit Tratt, stood on the Temple’s bimah as she told members of the audience who gathered to ask questions, “No wonder there are anti-Semites.”

Ah, Republicans.

Hattip: Conservative Apikorus, who adds:

From what I gather, Hayworth is a total paranoid about having too many brown Mexican Papists swarming into Arizona. I guess he's afariad that if they "change the character" of the state it will get harder for a rightwing Baptist gringo to hold on to his seat.

So he writes this book about the subject in which he praises Henry Ford's "Americanization" platform from the 1920s. My guess is that JD was so lazy that he didn't bother to look up the context of Ford's writing and find out that this was basically the Protocols of the Elders of Zion translated, reprinted and given some American twists by old Henry.

Of course, I guess it's possible that JD heard somewhere that all those Mexicans are descendantys of Spanish conversos and thus cryptojews, and so he really is worried about secret cabal of the Elders of Mexico or something.

Of course, Will Rogers said it best: "Ford used to have it in for the Jewish people until he saw them in Chevrolets, and then he said, 'Boys, I am all wrong.'"

The whole sorry story:
