On the surface, Ryan Murdough seems like an honorable man -- after all, he works with special needs children at a youth center in New Hampshire. But that is likely the only good thing about him. Murdough is an unapologetic white supremacist, and now he's running for office.
The 30-year-old Murdough is going after a seat in the New Hampshire State House. He's not hiding the fact that he is the state chairman of an
organization called American Third Position, which claims to "represent the political interests of White Americans, because no one else will." The site is raising money for Murdough's run.
Here's an example of Murdough's open-minded views, writing in February on his since-deleted Twitter account:
"In celebration of Black History month, I am going to recognize what they do best,commit crime,get AIDS/STD's,blame whitey,cry racism."
But wait, there's more. In a letter titled "We must preserve our racial identity" published by the Concord Monitor at the beginning of the month, Murdough offers his beliefs on white supremacy and racial segregation:
For far too long white Americans have been told that diversity is something beneficial to their existence. Statistics prove that the opposite is true. New Hampshire residents must seek to preserve their racial identity if we want future generations to have to possibility to live in such a great state. Affirmative action, illegal and legal non-white immigration, anti-white public school systems, and an anti-white media have done much damage to the United States of America and especially New Hampshire. It is time for white people in New Hampshire and across the country to take a stand. We are only 8 percent of the world's population and we need our own homeland, just like any other non-white group of people deserve their own homeland.
Murdough filed as a Republican, but the party wants absolutely nothing to do with him. It has publicly condemned him and banned him from using party resources. State GOP spokesman Ryan Williams called Murdough "a despicable racist" and said his "racist views are abhorrent, and he is not welcome in the New Hampshire Republican Party."
Murdough says that's fine with him. "I don't really need any Republican help. I wasn't looking for it in the first place. As a whole, I think they've sold white people out."
