(Updated) Hamilton mayor slams school board candidate who wants to kill Jews

Updated at 7:45 PM on August 20: Nicholas Ferrara said on Saturday that he will exit the race.  “In light of recent events, I will be dropping out from the Hamilton Twp school board race,” he said.  “Best of luck to the other candidates.”

Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin has called out a QAnon follower seeking a local school board seat for calling for the extermination of Jews.

Nicholas Ferrara, who received 2,956 votes (4%) in the Republican primary for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district, has now running for the Hamilton Board of Education.

“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.”

Martin called Ferrara’s statements unacceptable.

“Anyone calling for the killing of someone based on their religious preference is vile and disgusting. Hate has no home anywhere but especially not here in Hamilton – home to so many people from different religions, living in harmony with their neighbors,” said Martin.  “No one with such hate should serve in any elected capacity.”

POLITICO’s Matt Friedman first identified Ferrara’s postings as an organizer of “Ministry for Traditional Education.”

Trenton Republican Municipal Chair Jennifer Williams, who is seeking a city council seat in a a city where elected officials have made anti-Semitic comments in recent years, slammed Ferrara’s candidacy.

“The vile anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ comments from Hamilton School Board candidate Nick Ferrara are not only unacceptable, they are dangerous. Such bigoted views disqualify him for public office here in Mercer County or anywhere else,” she said.   “We must always be aware that hateful ideologies have not faded into history. Prejudicial beliefs such as anti-Semitism, homophobia/transphobia and racism have not gone away and are not acceptable in our society or in our schools.”
