Imagine if the grandson of a KKK member such as Cecil R. Price, Samuel Bowers, or Jimmy Snowden were running for a congressional seat as a Republican. What would the reaction be from the MSM? It would be total hysteria. The Republicans would be called a racist party. Van Jones would be having a panic attack on CNN. The Democrat Party is becoming more radical by the day, and are quickly resembling the UK’s Labour Party: a party that embraces anti-Semitism and Jihad.
“Dem running against indicted Rep. Hunter rises in race, disavows Munich terrorist grandfather,” by Adam Shaw, Fox News, August 24, 2018:
California Democratic congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar was barely on anyone’s radar last week in his longshot bid against GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter, in an overwhelmingly Republican district.
But after Hunter’s indictment Tuesday on corruption charges, including allegations of lavish personal spending with campaign funds, Campa-Najjar is suddenly a contender.
With his boosted chances, though, has come scrutiny of his dark family past — his grandfather was a member of the Palestinian Black September terror group that killed 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich.
The 29-year-old political neophyte, who has both Mexican and Palestinian heritage, has been quick and unequivocal in separating himself from Muhammad Yusuf al-Najjar.
Campa-Najjar is keen to point out he has never met his grandfather, whose death at the hands of Israeli commandos happened 16 years before Ammar was born. In a statement this week, the former Obama administration Labor Department official used his disavowal of his grandfather to take a not-so-subtle dig at his opponent.
“I’m happy to take responsibility for my own choices and my own decisions,” he said. “I think other men are responsible for their own crimes, whether it’s somebody who I share a lineage with and nothing else, or a sitting congressman whose being indicted and could be facing serious charges in the future.”
His campaign also says while he’s proud of his heritage, he is “American first.”
In an interview, Campa-Najjar told Fox News he isn’t concerned that his family history could harm the campaign.
“I’m not concerned, but I think it shows Hunter is concerned,” he said. “My opponents have to go back three generations to attack me. I can go back three days to highlight something pretty damning about him.”
Israeli media first drew attention to his family ties in early 2018, with reports noting he advocates a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict — unlike his grandfather.
Hunter and his wife, meanwhile, pleaded not guilty to the charges against them on Thursday, and Hunter has declared the prosecution to be politically motivated. But with a lengthy list of personal spending totaling up to $250,000, Hunter has struggled to explain the charges.
On Thursday, he was asked about spending by his wife, Margaret, and appeared to distance himself from her actions, saying it was her that handled the campaign finances…..
