John Ubele: another scary political candidate

Remember Bill Johnson, the white supremacist attorney who last month lost a bid for the Los Angeles Superior Court bench? Well, I just stumbled across another political candidate who appears to cast the same blame for the United States’ problems on immigrants and the Jews.

I unintentionally found John J. Ubele, who is running for a seat in the Florida legislature, while searching for Jews who had worked at IndyMac. One of the top returns was a blog post about Jewish financial power. The funny thing was, Ubele’s blog post made no mention of Jews, other than including “jewish financial power” in the tags. Neither did the Yahoo! Biz story it linked to.

But if you do a Google search for “John Ubele” and “Jewish”, the connection makes a lot more sense. Many of the top search results point to Vanguard News Network and Stormfront.org, online forums praising “pro-white political candidate John Ubele” as “a glorious beacon of light.”

You might remember those sites as big supporters of Kevin MacDonald, the Cal State Long Beach professor whose books about Jews have been compared to “Mein Kampf” and “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” And, in fact, on Ubele’s campaign homepage the suggested reading includes “The Israel Lobby” and MacDonald’s “Culture of Critique.”
