Alabamians Have A Choice This Election Day
You can either choose a Pro-Life Conservative Republican or Doug Jones A Pro-Choice Liberal Democrat that up until today hid the fact he supported members of the KKK and Holocaust deniers.
There’s no denying Jones helped prosecute the white men that bombed a predominantly black neighborhood but let’s look at the bigger picture here. Anyone that denies the Holocaust stands with Radical Islam. I don’t care if you claim to be a “Christian” you might as well go fight for ISIS.
The left is completely engulfed in radicals that do not believe in real Freedom. Alabama, Wake up. Do not vote for Jones.
The Democratic nominee in the heated Alabama Senate race once defended a man in court who has ties to the Ku Klux Klan and Holocaust deniers, complicating his record on the campaign trail as a civil rights champion.

But while Jones and the media tout his prosecution of the KKK members, his lesser-known record as a private defense attorney in the 1980s is often overlooked. In one case, he defended Tom Posey, the infamous figure during the Iran-Contra scandal, who had ties with the KKK and Holocaust deniers.
Posey was a well-known Alabama right-wing extremist activist. In 1983, he founded the Civilian Military Assistance (CMA), a paramilitary group that first provided arms and training to rebels in Nicaragua, but later expanded its activities and gained notoriety in 1986 after holding 15 illegal immigrants at gunpoint after they tried to cross the border from Mexico, the Arizona Republic reported July 8, 1986.
Jones represented Posey in 1987 amid allegations of illegal arms shipping to the Nicaraguan rebels fighting the socialist government at a time when such activity was prohibited as the U.S. was not officially at war with Nicaragua. He got off the charges thanks to Jones’ representation.
It was no secret in Alabama that the group began as an adjunct to the KKK. United Press International reported in 1986, a year before Jones defended Posey, that the CMA “is trailed by hints of shadowy connections, ranging from the CIA to the Ku Klux Klan, and members have been charged with an assortment of Latin American mischief, including gun running, drug smuggling, and assassination plots.”
The Jones campaign ignored Fox News’ requests for an interview, instead of releasing a statement asserting Jones’ progressive record on civil and human rights.
“Doug’s commitment to civil and human rights has been unwavering, as demonstrated by his well-documented career,” the campaign spokesperson said. “This case only involved Posey’s activities with the Contras and these charges were dismissed by a federal judge in Florida. Doug also represented Mr. Posey when he cooperated with congressional investigators.”
Group member celebrated Hitler’s birthday
Among the most hardline members of the CMA group was Chicago chapter leader Arthur Jones, described by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as “a long-time neo-Nazi who has been involved with anti-Semitic and racist groups since the 1970s.”
Throughout his lifetime, he attended multiple neo-Nazi rallies, celebrated Adolf Hitler’s birthday, and once said the Holocaust is a lie “and nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews.”
John Matthews, a former white supremacist who was part of the CMA since 1985 and left only after becoming an FBI informant in the 1990s, told Newsweek magazine in 2011 that following the covert war in Nicaragua, he traveled the country together with Posey, meeting former Klan leaders, attending parties with the KKK and “sitting in church pews with would-be abortion-clinic bombers.”
The Jones campaign did not respond to follow-up questions to its statement and did not answer directly when asked whether the candidate was aware at the time of Posey’s other activities.
