A former 2022 congressional candidate who called for the extermination of Jews has found his way onto a  panel at a local forum sponsored by American Promise, which advocates for reasonable limits on campaign spending, but was immediately tossed after the group’s president learned more about Nicholas Ferrara, who has a history of making vile anti-Semitic and anti-gay statements

“I’m ALL FOR execution of the Marxist/communist jews, who really are fake jew luciferean synagogue of Satan fuckers,” Ferrara said in one of many online posts.  “So a down and dirty assessment of each and every jew (and every person of every religion) must be made on an individual basis to separate the wheat from the chaff.  The chaff gets thrown into the Lake of Fire.  The wheat lives amongst each other in blissful peaceful once the chaff is removed from the world.”

That was enough for Jeff Clements, the president of American Promise,

“This guy is not going to be speaking on our panel.  He will be removed,” Clements told the New Jersey Globe.  “We condemn this absolutely  It’s the antithesis of everything we stand frm.

American Promise is a national grassroots organization whose advisory board members include former Massachusetts Governors Michael Dukakis and Deval Patrick, former U.S. Senators Alan Simpson and Olympia Snowe, presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, and other high-profile activists and leaders.

“This is our future, and I will be the judge, jury, and executioner,” Ferrara said in an online post discovered by POLITICO reporter Matt Friedman.

Ferrara, who received 2,956 votes (4%) in the Republican primary for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district, briefly entered the race for school board in Hamilton Township but withdrew after Mayor Jeff Martin and others slammed his hateful rhetoric.

“The ultra wealthy have too much influence and power,” Ferrara said in the American Promise press release.  “Their interests are often contrary to the interests of average citizens.”
