Green Party Candidate Says Focusing On Racism is a 'Distraction' From Real Problems - 2019-09-05
A Green Party candidate says he has no "racist or prejudicial bone" in his body, but he believes focusing on racism is a "distraction" from problems facing "the planet."
Danny Celovsky, the Green candidate for Bay of Quinte, was referencing tweets sent earlier this year. He admits he wanted to "stop" a discussion about a man who raised a Nazi Swastika flag on his property because the Green candidate wants everyone to "refocus on the priority — life on the planet."
In a lengthy and at times heated series of tweets, Celovsky introduced himself to Twitter users as "the Green Party candidate in Bay of Quinte, Ontario, Canada," then advised them to stop talking about "the stupid fascist freaks called Nazis."
