Patrick Little (born 1984/1985)[2] is a 2018 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from California. On May 5, 2018, he was removed from the California Republican Party Convention due to actions that were labeled anti-Semitic.[3] After being escorted out of the convention, a video emerged showing Little spitting and standing on a flag of Israel while calling the California GOP "Zionist stooges".[4][1]

In a poll conducted by SurveyUSA, Little reportedly came in second place at 18 percent after Senator Dianne Feinstein at 39 percent.[1] However, both Republican Party and Democratic Party members have cast doubt on these results as a Berkeley IGS poll released near the same day does not list Little.[3] The leading two candidates will compete for the Senate seat in November.

Background[edit]

According to his candidate website, Little was previously an IT engineer, and a United States Marine Corps veteran of Afghanistan.[1] He attained the rank of sergeant before leaving the Marines.[2]

Views[edit]

Little holds white nationalist[5] and anti-Semitic views,[2][6] however he personally refers to them as "counter-Semitism".[7] He has advocated limits on the number of Jewish people in government,[2] deportation of American Jews,[2] and has falsely claimed there is no evidence that the Holocaust ever happened.[2][7] Little has stated his conversion from supporting Israel to becoming an anti-Semite was the result of reading the Culture of Critique series and books published by Holocaust denier David Irving.[8]

Little also advocates amending the US Constitution to decalre the US an "ethnically European nation."[9] He has also advocated outlawing the raising of funds for holocaust education by non-profit organisations.[9]

Little has publicly praised Adolf Hitler.[10][1] He attended the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.[10]

Republican opposition[edit]

Harmeet Dhillon, committee member of the Republican National Committee for California, has stated that she and fellow delegates reject his ideology in their party.[3] California Republican Party officials have banned Little from registering for and attending party conventions. The executive director of the state Republican party, Cynthia Bryant, publicly disavowed Little's views and justified the decision to bar him from the convention; stating that political parties, as private organizations, are able to exclude anyone at their discretion.[4]
