2nd District GOP challenger addresses Nazi gathering

From the South Bend Tribune:

SOUTH BEND – Tony Zirkle, Republican candidate for 2nd District congressman, said he is willing to talk to any group that invites him, and that’s why he addressed a weekend gathering in Chicago of the American National Socialist Workers Party.

The occasion was a celebration of the 119th anniversary of the birth of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Zirkle scheduled a news conference for this afternoon to discuss his appearance at the event. He said this morning he agreed to address the group because of its concern about the prostitution of young white women.

According to Overthrow.com, an ANSWP Web site, “Zirkle spoke on his history as a state’s attorney in Indiana, prosecuting Jewish and Zionist criminal gangs involved in trafficking prostitutes and pornography from Russia and the Zionist entity.”

“I cannot believe that in 2008 anyone could think so backwards,” Luke Puckett, another GOP candidate for 2nd District congressman, said in reaction to Zirkle’s comment.

His latest comments are not the first time Zirkle has generated controversy on issues of race. In an interview in early March with the Kokomo Perspective, Zirkle suggested segregating African-Americans in separate states is an issue that deserves to be debated.
