You may have noticed that I'm not a fan of the DCCC and the way Emanuel and Hoyer sleathily sabotage the grassroots campaigns of progressive and anti-war Democrats in order to make sure that corporate shills and Insider candidates are pitted against vulnerable Republicans. I watched them do it over and over, sometimes quietly (like in FL-16), sometimes savagely and bloodily (like in IL-06 and FL-13). I wasn't watching when they stuck the shiv between Lee Hollingworth's ribs in AZ-05 so their candidate, Harry Mitchell, wouldn't have to face a primary against a progressive. Anti-democrats and elitist power-mongers like Emanuel and Hoyer hate primaries. They think candidates should be picked by the powers-that-be Inside-the-Beltway. They tried pulling the same crap on Democrats in CA-11 but it backfired in their face and their pathetic candidate got 28% of the vote. Now sore-loser Emanuel refuses to help finance Jerry McNerney's campaign against Richard "Dirty Dick"/"Let's Sell The National Parks" Pombo, one of the most contemptible Republicans in the whole House.

Now, all this doesn't make Harry Mitchell a bad candidate per se and it doesn't negate the fact that he's much, much, much better than crooked lunatic J.D. Hayworth, who we've looked at before here at Down With Tyranny. If I lived in Tempe, Scottsdale or Phoenix's northeast suburbs I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to vote for Mitchell. Because of his unsavory connection to Emanuel, however, I won't be donating to his campaign or putting him on the DWT ACT BLUE Page. Emanuel and the DCCC thought he should be the candidate without benefit of the wisdom of grassroots Democrats; let them finance the campaign. This is especially hard for me because Hayworth is a cut below your garden variety corrupt Republican a-hole, a true monstrosity and one of the most corrupt of the lot, purchased some time ago by Jack Abramoff for something like $150,000, so not just a dirty whore, but a cheap dirty whore.

Beloved by right-wing propaganda agents like O'Liely, Ingraham and Hannity (who "wrote" the intro to Hayworth's xenophobic book, WHATEVER IT TAKES), Hayworth defines rubber stamp Republican, although when Bush's ratings began to tank, he was the very first rat to desert the sinking ship, publicly telling his fearless leader to please stay away from AZ-05. He and the little wife have a real self-enrichment racket going for themselves ala Mr and Mrs DeLay, Mr and Mrs Doolittle and other Republicrooks who hide behind their wives' skirts in their larceny or-- as in the case of Crazy Curt Weldon(R-PA), behind his daughters' skirts.

Neo-fascist publishing house, Regnery, put out Hayworth's ghost-written anti-immigrant screed, a kind of love paean to actual (instead of "neo") Nazi, Henry Ford. The book is, more than anything else Hayworth's endorsement of Ford's so-called "Americanization," the 30's anti-Jew hysteria similar to exactly the same as Hayworth's anti-immigrant jihad today. Judge for yourself:

Henry Ford, a leader in [the Americanization] movement, said, "These men of many nations must be taught American ways, the English language, and the right way to live." Talk like that today and our liberal elites will brand you a cultural imperialist, or worse. But if you ask me, Ford had a better idea. Sadly, Americanization has given way to an insidious multiculturalism, the noxious idea that all cultures are equally valid and worthy... Henry Ford must be spinning in his grave.


Or check this out:

Over three decades ago, Nathan Glazer and Daniel Patrick Moynihan asked, "To what does one assimilate in modern America ?" In Henry Ford's day, we had a great big list of things. But if multiculturalism and diversity are valued above all else, the answer is you can assimilate however you want, or not at all.


Ford was a pro-Hitler, hate-spewing and raving anti-semite, one of the most anti-American plutocrats in the history of our nation, a disgrace to the country that nurtured his rise to unparalleled wealth. As J.D. Hayworth well knows Ford outlined his "Americanization" program in his best known work, THE INTERNATIONAL JEW. This is something that Hayworth never wants to talk about, at least not publicly where voters may discover what this racist shit-eater is really made of.

Indeed, it is such a statement as the Gentile mind could not have evolved, because the trend of Gentile feeling is all in the opposite direction, namely that Americanization is a good thing for the Jew. It is from authoritative Jewish sources we learn this fact, that what we call civilizing influences are looked upon as being at enmity with Judaism. It is not the Gentile who says that Jewish ideals, as ideals, are incompatible with the life of our country; it is the Jew who says so. It is he who inveighs against Americanism, not the American who inveighs against Judaism. Americanism is yet unfinished, Judaism has been complete for centuries. While no American would think of pointing to any part of the country or to any group as representing the true and final type of Americanism, the Jews quite unhesitatingly point to parts of the world and to certain groups as representing the true type of Judaism.

To "Americanize" means, in our ordinary speech, to bring into sympathy with the traditions and institutions of the United States, but the Jews do not mean only the United States when they say "America." They mean also South and Central America-- where so many revolutions have occurred. There are large numbers of Jews in Argentina, and many are found in other countries. It would probably give a wrong slant to the fact to say that the Jewish leaders are wholly anti-America, but it is true to say that they are against the "Americanization" of the Jewish immigrant stream. That is, that the trend of "Americanism" is so different from the trend of "Judaism" that the two are in conflict. This does not indicate treason toward American nationalisms perhaps, so much as it indicates loyalty toward Jewish nationalism.

-Henry Ford, "Jew Objection to Americanism"

And Ford made plenty of similarly xenophobic, racist and antisemitic outburts throughout THE INTERNATIONAL JEW, outburst that seem to have informed and inspired an adoring acolyte, Arizona's most clueless, hate-filled congressloon, J.D. Hayworth.

"One of the strongest causes militating against the full Americanization of several millions of Jews in this country is their belief-instilled in them by their religious authorities-that they are 'chosen,' that this land is theirs, that the inhabitants are idolators, that the day is coming when the Jews will be supreme."
-Henry Ford, "Jews and the 'Religious Persecution' Cry"

"Wherever Jewish tendencies are permitted to work unhindered, the result is not 'Americanization,' nor 'Anglicization' nor any other distinctive nationalism, but a strong and ruling reversion back to essential 'Judaization.'"
-Henry Ford, "Protocols Claim Partial Fulfillment"

Let's keep in mind from whence J.D. Hayworth has chosen to draw his inspiration for his work and his bizarre mindset when it's time to go to the polls in November. And let's remember, that whatever it takes, retiring J.D. is worth the effort.

This is fascinating, but...

I really can't see how this is going to make us any real money.

Wow, it's pretty obvious from his FOX TV rants that Hayworth doesn't like Hispanics, but I had no ideas his book exposes his dislike for Jews.

Well, it seems J.D. Hayworth's ghost writer didn't read Henry Ford too closely. I would be surprised if Hayworth ever reads anything at all.

Ford also underwrote the publication and widespread distribution of "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." More than any other person, he is responsible for its entrance into popular culture.

I am embarassed to live in a state that would elect a blowhard like JD Hayworth(less). He is a talking head who can read a script and bloviate the standard Republican talking points. I was unaware that the DCCC shivved a progressive candidate in the primary, but knowing Harry Mitchell's record and comparing it to Hayworth(less)'s record, the choice is easy.

I realize I will be slammed here as being a racist etc. I am no fan of Heyworth and am a life long Democrat.

Still unless you live in a border town, or are wealthy, the tide of illegal immigrants, complete with MS-13 drug money is a serious problem. Of course, lets not forget border and port security-(BTW how the hell have we let Bush claim to be "strong" on security while leaving the front and back doors wide open?)

Republicans will win with this issue-I urge Democrats to resist allowing them to steal it-I have nothing against foreign nationals, but I stand with my citizen neighbors first, I want them to maintain a decent standard of living, I want them to prosper; and admittedly this is selfish as I too am an average wage earner.

What I don't get is why I a democrat am so lonely in this regard. Why have the Democrats abandoned their roots? What is wrong with supporting citizen workers? Why the knee jerk support for the poor of other countries? Why not support your citizen neighbors.

Pretending that all Americans (black or white) who dislike the corporate sell out of American jobs either through H1B Visas or unchecked illegal immigration are uneducated racists and xenophobes is intellectually dishonest and at bottom a lie.

Remember the old joke: "when your neighbor loses his job its a recession, but its a depression when you lose yours" or something like that.

Border and port security is a winner, not for some evil reason, rather because most Americans believe charity begins at home, and our poor our under or unemployed are hard working and deserving too, especially from their fellow citizens-lets not forget that and maybe more importantly lets not lose again.

I've often said that Oklahoma has the stupidest Congressional delegation, but Arizona comes really really close. Thanks for the report.

I live in Hayworth's district. Never trust a man who sharpens his hair.

actually, Rahm shived two progressive candidates to give Mitchell a primary-free run at Hayworth. Judge Larry King had been running for Congress in AZ5 since 2004... was registered, had collected signatures and money, had asked for help from DCCC (so it's not like they didn't know about him!!). Then all of a sudden, Harry announces with DCCC and ADP backing and the money dries up for Larry! What Emanuel's DCCC is doing in America is reprehensible, not to mention a losing strategy!

You realise ford was a democrat & inspiration to hitler who had a picture of him in his office?

I can understand people being upset with Mitchell and the DCCC for shoving Larry King out of the way. However, Harry did have a strong grassroots urging for him to run for Congress, especially from the Young Democrats at ASU, Tempe leaders, and many activists.

One of the other Arizona Republican congressional reps, Shadegg I think, dubbed Hayworth "Foghorn Leghorn." It is the most apt two-word description of a politician that I have ever heard.

sdhusky1, listen to the Democrats in the Arizona Legislature on immigration. They have been proposing Legislation that would give priority to enforcement against the businesses that hire illegal immigrants. That removes the incentive for people to come here illegally AND protects American workers. Although some of the "enforcement-first" Republicans give this lip service, in fact they won't let the legislation pass, just like ICE won't ever do more than token enforcement against employers as long as the Republicans are in power. Why? Could it be that their real con$tituent$ don't want them to.
