• Cockburn’s Book Inspiration for White Supremacists

    Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists look to Leslie Cockburn as source for bigotry and anti-Semitism.

    Richmond, VA – Virginia’s Fifth District includes the city of Charlottesville. As we all know, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and racists descended on that great city in August of last year to spread their filth. Virginia Republicans universally condemned these despicable people at the time, and continue to maintain that they do not represent Virginia values and are not welcome in our Commonwealth.

    The Democrat running to represent Charlottesville in Congress, Leslie Cockburn, has a troubling history of espousing bizarre, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. But now we know for a fact that the same type of people that invaded Charlottesville last year get inspiration from Cockburn and her anti-Semitic writing:

    Leslie Cockburn’s book is used as source material on a number of racist, anti-Semitic websites!

    “It’s a very good book … a very serious book,” said Cockburn in an interview with Rapp News.

    Apparently, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and racists believe Cockburn’s book is a “very good book” as well. In fact, some of the organizations that referenced Cockburn were also involved in promoting and organizing the August 2017 Charlottesville rally, along with lamenting the “gay agenda” and the “new world order.” Cockburn’s co-author even said that “the Israel lobby in the United States dictates American policy.”

    From the Bull Elephant:

    “The first, Stormfront, is a prominent online gathering place for neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Cockburn’s book is used as source material for a number of stereotypical claims that international “Jewry” are behind the scenes, secretly controlling the government of the United States.”

    “The second is the National-Anarchist Movement, a pseudo-anarchism group that advocates for things like “racial separatism” in the United States.”

    “Here’s another, this time from an outfit calling themselves “Overlords of Chaos.” The charming group of individuals tells us all about the “New World Order” and how everything is unfolding according to the Zionist plot to rule the world. Leslie Cockburn is cited very favorably for this proposition.”

    “Democrats brought us Jim Crow laws, segregation, and Japanese internment during World War II,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Now they have nominated a candidate for Congress who is the inspiration for Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and racists, and who is supported by Tim Kaine, every Democrat candidate for Congress, and the DPVA. Leslie Cockburn wants to represent the same city that was rocked by senseless tragedy less than a year ago. Now, it appears as if the people responsible for the horrible violence also look to Leslie Cockburn for talking points to advance their bigoted agenda.”
