You know how sometimes when you vote both candidates are unappealing and you end up going for the lesser of two evils? The people of Hilton Head, North Carolina might not have that option in the upcoming mayoral race. One candidate is a Holocaust denier and another really admirers Adolf Hitler. I’m sure lefties are screaming that this is the kind of white supremacy President Trump has brought to this country, but one of these kooks is a Bernie Bro and the other is a black female democrat. Go figure.
The Post and Courier was nice enough to introduce us to some of the candidates running for Mayor of Hilton Head in what is sure to be the most interesting political race of the year. First up is Michael Santomauro, a native New Yorker who said he would have voted for Bernie Sanders if he was on the ballot in 2016:
Santomauro, a three-year resident of Hilton Head who has lived much of his life in New York City, is running on a typical platform for a booming coastal area of South Carolina: better traffic management and a moratorium on new building projects.
He’s also a self-described “Holocaust revisionist” and denies several documented facts of the mass extermination of Jews and others that took place before and during World War II.
Santomauro insists that his views are about taking a critical look at established history. But he also told The Post and Courier that he thought an outsized number of Jewish people control banking and the entertainment industry. He sympathized with white supremacist marchers in the 2017 Charlottesville, Va., demonstration who chanted, “Jews will not replace us.”
That chant, he said, “doesn’t come from a vacuum.”
He seems nuts. Let’s check out his opponent Rochelle Williams, a black woman who has previously run for Hilton Head mayor and has a not-so-secret crush on Adolf Hitler:
…Williams didn’t skirt the subject of Santomauro’s run or try to move on quickly to another topic.
She offered that she thought Nazi leader Adolf Hitler was successful in uniting people.
“He did what he had to do. He got that many people to follow him. He must have been doing something right,” said Williams.
Williams said what she admired primarily about Hitler was his ability to control people.
“I like the power part, I guess, the control part,” Williams said.
Spoken like a true democrat. Is there anything more liberal than wanting to completely control people’s lives?
Obviously these candidates are going to split the neo-Nazi vote which could open up the race to a third-party candidate who supports the reinstitution slavery or a full-blown Stalinist commie. That is of course if the Russians don’t meddle in the election and steal it for a candidate that want to make Hilton Head great again.
Luckily for the voters of Hilton Head, there are 5 other candidates on the ballot for the November 6 mayoral election. The Post and Courier didn’t really cover what these others are all about, but presumably at least one of them isn’t a Nazi.
