GOP Senate candidate compares Smoking ban to Hitler forcing Jews to wear the Star of David

U.S. Senate Republican candidate John Raese, running in West Virginia, compared a county smoking ban with Hitler forcing Jews to wear the Star of David, while speaking at the Putnam County Lincoln Day dinner.

Raese unleashes Godwin’s Law:

More on Raese via the Huffington Post:

Raese [in a previous campaign] proclaimed that minimum wage laws should be repealed and said the U.S. needed to put “1000 laser systems” in the sky to defend against a “rogue missile.”

Think Progress reports:

 

In his last bid, Raese said the minimum wage was unconstitutional, said he wanted to take capitalism back to the days before child labor laws, blamed volcanoes for global warming, made fun of Chinese last names, and proudly proclaimed, “I made my money the old-fashioned way — I inherited it.” Perhaps most famously, one of Raese’s biggest ideas from 2010 was demanding “1,000 laser systems put in the sky” for missile defense. “And need it right now,” he added to demonstrate his seriousness

While Raese portends the evils of a minimum wage, he is enjoying his life as a multimillionaire – inherited money of course.

    Thank goodness there are still some sane folks in WV who see this guy for what he is: a bored rich guy who is totally clueless about how and why government works…kind of like Mittens.

    This man is a despicable piece of human feces. He’s been trying to buy his way into office in West Virginia FOR YEARS. He’s never come close to winning.

      I can’t imagine why.
