Meet the Candidate

The Curmudgeon would like to introduce you to Seth Grossman, the Republican candidate for New Jersey’s second congressional district seat.

Grossman has…issues, as the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

“The whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American,” Grossman said at a GOP campaign forum held April 21 in Pittsgrove, Salem County.  

And this:

… Grossman calls diversity “an excuse by Democrats, communists, and socialists, basically, to say that we’re not all created equal; that some people, if somebody is lesser qualified, they will get a job anyway, or they’ll get into college anyway, because of the tribe that they’re with, what group, what box they fit into.”

This is more than one kind of ignorance, too, because Grossman doesn’t appear to understand the difference between diversity and affirmative action.

Which doesn’t say much about his intelligence.

And it’s pretty funny, in this day and age, that Grossman is still worried about communists.

But Grossman has something to say about other groups, too.

He also insults Kim Guadagno, the former Republican lieutenant governor who ran and lost to Phil Murphy in the New Jersey governor’s race, suggesting she was only nominated because she is a woman. 

And he’s not finished with women, either.

He yearns for a time when women did not have to work, and says a tightening of immigration laws should appeal to African Americans.

And there’s this gem:

“Once we say that the Republicans want these traditional ways that made America great for all these years, then maybe African Americans would realize that when we enforce our immigration laws, there’ll be more opportunity for Americans of all backgrounds,” Grossman says.

Those times included a time when women did not need to work, Grossman says, and there was no need for tax credits for child care.

“When we talk about women saying, ‘Well, we need special care for child care. We need this credit and that credit. Say, wait a minute, when America was great, one parent alone earned more than enough money to comfortably support a family,” he said. “That’s what happened before we chopped Americans into these different boxes and saying I’m entitled to something because I’m part of this group.”

The finest New Jersey Republicans can offer

This isn’t a matter of a “fake news” reporter taking these things out of context or inaccurately reporting his words, either; the reporter ran this stuff by Grossman and he verified it all.  Good thing, too:  there’s video, which you can find here, embedded in the newspaper article.

That’s Seth Grossman, New Jersey voters:  there’s pretty much something for EVERYONE not to like.

And he’s the best and brightest New Jersey’s Republican party has to offer its voters in the second congressional district.
