Jewish Insider: Lt. Governor Mark Robinson’s “History of Racist and Antisemitic Diatribes”

Robinson: “I’m not being fooled into believing that the Nazis are a threat to anyone”

A new bombshell investigation from Jewish Insider reveals that North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson’s pattern of downplaying the Holocaust and espousing antisemitic and racist rhetoric is much more extensive than previously reported, including a series of Facebook posts in which he “minimized Nazi atrocities and promoted conspiracy theories about Hollywood and the media using Yiddish ethnic slurs, among other incendiary assertions.”

In the newly uncovered posts, Robinson writes that  “It’s hard for me to understand how so many can remain blind to the fact that COMMUNISM, not Nazism was, and still is, the BIGGEST threat to American freedom,” muses that he is “not being fooled into believing that the Nazis are a threat to anyone,” and invokes both Israeli currency and a Yiddish slur to claim that the Marvel film Black Panther (which he suggests was “created by an agnostic Jew” and a “satanic marxist”) was specifically produced to bilk money from Black viewers.

These comments are just the latest in a well-documented history of dangerous, racist, and antisemitic statements from Robinson that has put Jewish North Carolinians on edge and earned unequivocal condemnation from the Republican Jewish Coalition. Earlier this week, Robinson made national headlines by saying that dictators including Hitler, Mao, and Stalin were being taken out of context and calling it “time for us to get back and start reading some of [their] quotes.”

“Mark Robinson is an out-of-touch extremist whose unhinged rhetoric and antisemitic conspiracy theories make North Carolinians less safe by the day,”said Democratic Governors Association Deputy Communications Director Izzi Levy. “These comments are dangerous and disqualifying, and give North Carolina voters yet another reason to reject him at the polls.”
