The National Republican Congressional Committee has withdrawn its support for House candidate Seth Grossman after a report emerged that he posted a link to a white supremacist website.

In 2014, Grossman posted a link to an openly racist piece on the white nationalist website American Renaissance to his Facebook account, according to Media Matters. The author, who uses a pen name, writes that "blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike."

Grossman wrote when posting the link: "Oy vay! What so many people, black, white and Hispanic, whisper to me privately but never dare say out loud publicly. Back in the Old Country, people were very careful about what they said for fear of retaliation. At one time, America was a free country and people were not afraid to express their true thoughts. Am just posting this as an individual and not on behalf of any organization."

"Bigotry has no place in society -- let alone the U.S. House of Representatives," NRCC head Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio told NJ.com. "The NRCC withdraws our support of Seth Grossman and calls on him to reconsider his candidacy. The people of New Jersey's 2nd District deserve an inclusive Republican candidate who will be a trusted conservative voice in Congress."

Grossman, who has said previously that "diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American," told Media Matters that he "did not and do not agree with any of (the post's) claims, and never visited the website."
