American Nazi Party will lobby Congress
The American Nazi Party now has a registered lobbyist to push their agenda of White supremacy, anti-Semitism, and racial inequality on Capitol Hill.
The neo-Nazi organization will be represented by John Bowles, who ran as the “White People’s Candidate” for President in 2008.
“This is the first time any American National Socialist has done this and propels the American Nazi Party into the lead as a now first-class minor political party in America, i.e., pressuring and influencing the elected officials of the House of Representatives and the Senate regarding the self-determination rights of White people in America,” according to the American Nazi Party’s website.
In an interview with ABC News, Bowles said he plans to use a “very careful and objective approach” to lobby on issues such as immigration and ballot access.
“I’m not going to go in and shove a swastika in their face,” Bowles told ABC News. “There might be some congressmen who crumple up the paper and some who say ‘this is interesting.’”
Bowles initially listed a Pennsylvania P.O. box address on his registration. Three days later, Bowles amended the form to include a street address in Enoree, South Carolina.
