US: Republican Organises Pro-racism Protests

Russell Walker, the Republican candidate for House District 48’s Scotland and Hoke counties, lost the support of the North Carolina Republican Party this week after being tied to several racist and bizarre claims.

Walker’s personal campaign website and Facebook pages tied to him espouse his belief in white supremacy and what he sees as the Christian Bible’s support for the white race above all others.

Walker has filed lawsuits to keep Confederate symbols in public places as well as against the Hoke County News-Journal for refusing to publish his conspiratorial letters to the editor.

After being linked to years of bizarre and racist behaviour, the North Carolina GOP officially severed ties with the lone Republican candidate on the ballot in the upcoming November election.

Walker, who owns property in Aberdeen, will face Democratic incumbent Garland Pierce, an African-American minister.

“Based on recent behaviour and previous statements, the North Carolina Republican Party is unable and unwilling to support the Republican nominated candidate for North Carolina House District 48,” GOP chairman Robin Hayes said in a statement provided to the Charlotte Observer Tuesday.

“The NCGOP along with our local parties in Hoke, Scotland and Robeson Counties will be spending our time and resources supporting Republican candidates that better reflect the values of our party.”

Walker’s website that touts his candidacy for the North Carolina General Assembly suggests a wide variety of claims about race, Jews and the Bible.

“What is wrong with being a white supremacist? God is a racist and a white supremacist,” reads one segment.

“Someone or group has to be supreme and that group is the whites of the world…there is no such thing as equality. Someone or something has to be superior and someone and something has to be inferior.”

Walker is behind several lawsuits against Tyton NC Biofuels, an ethanol plant, and a civil rights case to abolish “at-large” voting. Walker complains that because the Hoke County News-Journal has not published his letters or reported on his actions, he also filed a lawsuit against the paper.

The newspaper’s editor, Ken MacDonald, wrote a front-page piece in January about Walker’s frequent protests in front of the paper’s Raeford office as well as his numerous “frivolous” lawsuits.

“The guy protesting outside our building last Wednesday with signs that read, “God is racist,” and “What’s wrong with being racist?” says he’ll be back with new signs. So instead of ignoring him, I think there’s a need to at least explain his presence,” wrote MacDonald.
