Leading GOP Oklahoma state Senate candidate said he’s “not beholden to Jews” and listed “the Jews” among examples of “evil”
Right-wing streamer Jarrin Jackson recently received the most votes in a Republican primary for a Oklahoma state Senate seat and is headed to a runoff election. Jackson has repeatedly posted antisemitic remarks online, including saying that he’s “not beholden to Jews” and listing “the Jews” as evidence that “evil exists.”
Jackson received the most votes in the June 28 Republican primary for Oklahoma state Senate District 2 and will head to an August 23 runoff against fellow Republican Ally Seifried.
Jackson is a business owner who frequently posts his commentaries online, including on Facebook. He wrote on his campaign site that he “recently authored and self-published the Live Local Field Manual to train Americans on organizing and responding to escalating tyranny in the wake of the stolen 2020 elections.”
His campaign website lists endorsements from Arizona Republican state Rep. Mark Finchem and Sen. Wendy Rogers, both of whom have a history of supporting extremism.
Right Wing Watch has documented numerous toxic actions from Jackson, including shooting Dominion voting machines while repeating lies about the 2020 election being stolen; pushing anti-LGBTQ bigotry; and declaring that he would love to shoot “godless commies.”
Media Matters found antisemitic remarks by Jackson on his Telegram page, which is linked to from his campaign website. Those comments were made prior to him announcing his state senate campaign.
On January 29, he wrote: “The answer to Zionism or any other -ism is the gospel of Jesus Christ. His death, burial, & resurrection for the salvation of sin. I'm not beholden to Jews or any other group. People need to repent & believe the gospel. Hell is gonna be hot.”
On February 6, Jackson wrote a review of the right-wing documentary Enemies Within: The Church and listed “the Jews” after noting that “evil exists” and saying “outline & detail the evil. Amen.” The rest of the list was: “Illuminati. Covid shots kill. Rothschilds. Communists. Woke pastors. Social gospel.” He then stated that people need to “preach the gospel” or else “saying bad stuff is bad is worthless.”
Jackson has also repeatedly referenced the Rothschilds on his Telegram page. Antisemitic conspiracy theorists have long falsely claimed the Rothschild family is leading a group of Jewish people in secretly controlling or engineering events for their own benefit.
In the February 6 post referenced above, he listed the Rothschilds as an example showing that “evil exists.”
On October 21, 2021, he wrote: “Before 11/3/2020, I would’ve rolled my eyes at people invoking ‘Rothschilds’ or ‘MK Ultra’ or other conspiracy theories” but then he saw the election supposedly being stolen from Trump.
On February 14, 2021, he pushed the conspiracy theory that one of the Rothschilds “applied for & was granted the patent for COVID-19 testing. In 2015.” Reuters wrote: “The false claim that a testing method for COVID-19 was patented by Richard Rothschild in 2015 and 2017 has been shared online. The patent for a system that analyses biometric data to determine whether the user is suffering from COVID-19 was not applied for until May 17, 2020.”
