'With Jews we lose'A reminder once again that I am in Boston where the Sabbath does not start for another six and a half hours, and therefore I am continuing to post even though the Sabbath has started in Israel.
A candidate for the US Senate in Kentucky has decided that since he cannot win anyway, he is going to show his true colors as an anti-Semite instead. Robert Ransdell has posted some 20 signs around his state with the slogan 'with Jews we lose,' and plans to post at least 200 more.
Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.
Thanks to television station WLWT, the signs have apparently gone away.
After receiving several calls on the signs, WLWT made sure the signs were legal.
According to a Kentucky statute, political signs are required to include the words “paid for by” followed by the name and the address of the responsible person or party. In this case there is no address shown.
Many residents said they wish the signs and his message would just go away.
“I believe that there is no such thing as racial equality. You see that in our cities everyday,” Ransdell said.
As of Wednesday the signs were gone. Apparently Ransdell did not ask the property owner for permission.Ransdell had earlier told WLWT that he was getting 'positive feedback' online about the signs. I didn't know that there were so many KKK members in KentucKy.
Here's hoping this spells the end of Ransdell's nascent political career. What a moron.
