The American Nazi Party has evidently registered its own lobbyist on Capitol Hill, 2008 National Socialist Movement presidential candidate John Taylor Bowles, US News reported Friday.
According to a registration form found by US News, Bowles signed up with the Clerk of the House as a lobbyist on Tuesday.
As per the form, he registered as a lobbyist in order to promote issues relating to “Political Rights and ballot access laws.” The form also reportedly cites accounting, agriculture, clean air and water, civil rights, health issues, the Constitution, immigration, manufacturing, and retirement as “general lobbying issue areas.”
When asked if he believed a member of Congress would agree to meet with him, he told the newspaper: “I don’t see why not. Of course I won’t approach anybody in Congress unless it’s a very interesting issue or law. I’m going to be very careful about the issues I choose for this.”
According to a follow-up published by Business Insider, Bowles associated with a variety of Neo-Nazi parties and splinter groups between 1977 and today.
His 2008 presidential platform for the neo-Nazi National Socialist movementpromised “free healthcare, free college education, zero interest mortgages, decent paying jobs, very low taxes, crime free neighborhoods, low gasoline prices, a healthy social security system, and to be able to have enough time to enjoy life!”
He suggested that in order to achieve these goals, the US must “stop wasting white taxpayer dollars on third world countries, no-win wars, and foreign aid to Israel. white taxpayer dollars belong in white taxpayers pockets!”
‘Destroying the Jew’
In posts that he published on the National Socialist Order of America party blog “National Director,” Bowels offered a variety of anti-Semitic rants around the same time he ran for president.
“People who spread lies and rumors are no different than the Jew,” he wrote in one entry. “How can we combat such actions? Always get both sides of a story. Never spread something you hear. We must not allow deception and lies to get the better of us, instea (sic) we must question everything. The best Decisions are made after all information has been gathered. This is how we can stay strong and this is how we will destroy the JEW.”
He also used to display a coffin with a skeleton in it accompanied by a sign that said “Race-mixing = death.” A large part of his platform was his program for sending back different ethnic and racial groups to their country of origin.
According to the Business Insider, Bowles’ e-mails were allegedly hacked by the One People’s Project, an anti-fascist activist group on the web. The messages included much wrangling about what it takes to make National Socialism a success in America, and who really is a Nazi and who is just a “racist come-along.”
Recounting a joint appearance with the Ku Klux Klan, Bowles wrote: “One family said I should have mentioned the time I dumped a bucket of water on Oprah Winfrey in the 1970′s in my campaign platform. If White voters knew that I would have instantly got a million votes.”
