Kobach's campaign paid Kansan known to post racist comments on white nationalist site

Source: Kansas City Star

Kansas Republican Kris Kobach’s Senate campaign paid an Olathe man who regularly posted hateful comments about Jews and racial minorities on a white nationalist website.

Kobach’s campaign paid Joe Suber $500 for field coordinating services in September, according to the Republican’s latest campaign finance report. Suber also filed the paperwork with the state of Kansas creating the Kobach for Senate campaign as a limited liability company in August.

Suber has a long history of making anti-Semitic and racist comments on The UNZ Review, a website that includes white nationalist and anti-Semitic content. During Kobach’s unsuccessful campaign for governor, Suber regularly heaped praise on the candidate and encouraged other readers of the site to back him.

“I am ready to sign up for the Kobach ethnostate defense force: Kansas, Kobach and Kids,” Suber wrote in June of 2018 in response to a post that referred to unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border as “child-invaders.

1. In a sane world

this information alone would be enough to prevent pasty racist POS KKKobach from ever coming within stealing distance of another election.

In this country, at this time? I dunno.




Oh, and here's more: far-right "libertarian" a-hole peter thiel is backing KKK:

Silicon Valley billionaire Thiel invests in Kobach, Hawley and rise of nationalism

Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, who believes Google should be investigated for treason and once wrote that American democracy has been in decline since women won the right to vote, is investing heavily in two of the Kansas City region’s most ambitious political startups.

Thiel steered six figures into a dark money group that backed Republican Kris Kobach’s failed campaign for Kansas governor, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

And now that Kobach is running for U.S. Senate, the PayPal co-founder is upfront about his financial support. Last week at his New York City apartment, Thiel and conservative pundit Ann Coulter co-hosted a fundraiser for the former Kansas secretary of state.

3. Nice thing is we rejected him once

And even state republicans consider him too toxic and aren't supporting him. This won't help.

4. I don't know. Racist candidates are very popular in Kansas.

They enthusiastically voted for an open racist in the 2016 Presidential election.
