New Jersey GOP Candidate Running for Seat in Danger of Flipping: ‘Diversity Is a Bunch of Crap and Un-American’

Seth Grossman is running in the open 2nd Congressional District in New Jersey, widely seen as a likely Democratic pickup in November.

Seth Grossman, who surprisingly won the Republican primary in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District last week, is already drawing some unwanted attention in a race widely viewed as a Democratic pickup opportunity in November.

In a video captured by American Bridge Political Action Committee, a liberal group, Grossman said: “The whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American."



The video, first provided to The Inquirer, was reportedly recorded at a campaign forum event in April.

“Now what diversity has become, it's been an excuse by Democrats, communists, and socialists, basically, to say that we’re not all created equal; that some people, if somebody is lesser qualified, they will get a job anyway or they’ll get into college anyway because of the tribe that they’re with, what group, what box they fit into,” Grossman continued in the footage.

1. As a Jewish man, he should be especially ashamed.

Comments like those and many of the atrocities Jews suffered over the centuries, were usually not far apart.

2. He's got it backwards, of course. "Diversity" is implementing "we are all created equal".


But of course he does not think we are created equal, hence he says diversity is crap.

Plus being a white male he is uber-privileged but as a RepubliConMan and RepubliConned koolaid drinker he can't even imagine he is privileged.

17. I think he was misquoted here

What he meant to say was "Diversity is un-Republican."

4. This jerk needs to be so soundly defeated in November that he slithers

back under his rock with a profound sense of shame.

9. I find it increasingly hysterical how they lean on the "communists" label

Yet they keep moving closer to these very same modern "communits" like Putin as if they are the worlds saviors. It's really sad how screwed up so many people in the country are that they don't see this.

12. The democrat running is Jeff Van Drew who is a state senator and a dentist

I hope he wins. He has a lot of political experience.

14. Shameful remarks & equating democracy & Democrats with communists! soshialists!

Because anti-democratic, ethno-nationalist, authoritarian governments work out so well! Lol.

“Now what diversity has become, it's been an excuse by Democrats, communists, and socialists, basically, to say that we’re not all created equal; that some people, if somebody is lesser qualified, they will get a job anyway or they’ll get into college anyway because of the tribe that they’re with, what group, what box they fit into,” Grossman continued in the footage.

15. "Democrats, communists, socialists."

This sounds straight out of the early 50's Red Scare
playbook.

Someone needs to tell Mr. Grossman that
Joe McCarthy and J.Edgar Hoover are no longer with us.

And I hope to Hell the Orange Dungpile doesn't bring those days back.
