This White Nationalist Republican In NC Who Says God Is Racist Just Won The Primary For House Of Representatives

The insidious expansion of white supremacy across the country took an even darker turn recently when North Carolina’s Russell Walker won the Republican primary to represent Scotland and Hoke counties.

The Republican party officially cut ties with Walker, the only Republican on the ballot, shortly before the election. Walker’s campaign website and Facebook accounts revealed his disturbing beliefs. According to Walker, Jews are Satanic and that the Bible supports white supremacy.

“Based on recent behavior and previous statements, the North Carolina Republican Party is unable and unwilling to support the Republican nominated candidate for North Carolina House District 48,” said GOP chairman Robin Hayes.

Americans everywhere are shocked.

However, Walker’s primary win stoked the fires of determination as well.

Walker is expected to be defeated by the Democratic incumbent, and African-American religious leader, Garland Pierce, but the fact remains: Walker never should’ve gotten this far.
