Neo-Nazi Senate candidate who admired Hitler kicked out of California GOP convention
The anti-Semitic Patrick Little was spotted being escorted out of the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina after he attempted to register at the convention as a VIP
A neo-Nazi Republican Senate candidate from California was kicked out from the state's GOP convention on Saturday while he was dragging and kicking an Israeli flag, according to reports.
The anti-Semitic Patrick Little was spotted being escorted out of the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina after he attempted to register at the convention as a VIP, KTLA 5 reported.
Amidst the commotion at the registration desk, some Republican officials recognized Little's name and alerted the security staff.
The executive director of the California Republican Party, Cynthia Bryant, while talking to KTLA, said that Little was not welcome at the annual GOP convention.
"There’s no room for that kind of hate speech that that man uses," Bryant said.
The Republican Senate candidate confirmed that he was booted out of the event in a YouTube video where he is seen spitting and standing on the Israeli flag.
Little is a Holocaust denier and rejects the fact that millions of Jews were killed during World War II. He has also called for a country "free from Jews," and has admitted that he admires the Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler.
"They just had me expelled from the building because I won’t serve Israel," Little said, who describes himself as a "pro-white" candidate.
The Republican Party slammed Little earlier this week and said that they do not support any form of religious bigotry.
California Republican Party's communications director, Matt Fleming, said: "Mr Little has never been an active member of our party. I do not know Mr Little and I am not familiar with his positions."
"But in the strongest terms possible, we condemn anti-Semitism and any other form of religious bigotry, just as we do with racism, sexism or anything else that can be construed as a hateful point of view," Newsweek reported.
Reports state that despite Little's extremist and anti-Semitic views, he has been polling higher against other Republican Senate candidates.
