California Senate Candidate Gets Removed By Security After Appearing At GOP Convention
A candidate who is gaining quite a bit of ground in the polls was kicked out of the GOP convention in San Diego California today shortly after entering the building. Witnesses say that he was kicking an Israeli flag on the way out.
The California Republican Party kicked US Senate candidate Patrick Little, a white nationalist, out of the party convention in San Diego Saturday morning. Little was escorted out by hotel security and, according to a witness, was kicking an Israeli flag as he was taken out.

Patrick Little, who is running for Senate in California against Dianne Feinstein, has been quite outspoken about his disdain for the government of Israel. Little commonly talks about the attack of the USS liberty by Israel, the Lavon Affair and Israel refusing to sign the non-proliferation agreement in some of his statements when arguing why Americans should not support the state of Israel as an ally.
“I am the only America First candidate in California,” Little declares on his website, along with “No more of Feinstein’s Jewish supremacist wars for Israel.”
His platform also calls for “limiting representation of Jews in the government,” which is a reference to the Israel lobby AIPAC.
As Little was led from the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina he was “kicking and dragging an Israeli flag on the ground,” said GOP consultant Luis Alvarado, who witnessed Little’s removal. “That doesn’t represent our values.”
Little finished second in a recent poll that SurveyUSA did for a number of California television stations, including KPIX in San Francisco, with 18 percent of the vote, trailing Feinstein, who had 39 percent. State Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles and San Diego Republican businessman Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente tied for third at 8 percent. The top two finishers in the June 5 primary advance to the fall general election.
The poll, which was conducted online April 19-23, found Feinstein and Little in a virtual tie, 29 to 28 percent, among Central Valley voters, with Little pulling support from 42 percent of those who say they are conservatives.
