Dianna Ploss used to just be another screamy Trump crank, but now she's running for governor - as an independent - with a platform that calls for a crusade against Jews in Massachusetts.
Today's the deadline to file enough signatures statewide to get a place on the November ballot; Ploss said Sunday she doesn't think she'll have enough.
Her would-be lieutenant-governor candidate, Jim Rizoli, is a "proud" Holocaust denier who used to froth about Brazilian immigrants in Framingham but now concentrates on hating Jews and she's assisted by a woman she calls her "minister of Third Reich Advocacy."
In one video, Ploss said she'd keep bitching about the Jews until they hang her. But then, she continued, "they don't do that, that's too easy." Instead, she said, Jews punish their enemies by cutting open their stomachs, and reaching for their intestines, which they then tie to a pole and make the victims run around the pole.
"Maybe that's where they got the Maypole from," she said.
She won't come anywhere close to winning, of course, but worth remembering, perhaps: In 2018, virulent homophobe and forced-birth advocate Scott Lively got 98,214 votes in the Republican primary against Charlie Baker.
