The husband of a Plainfield, Connecticut Democrat running for a probate judge seat was a member of a prominent neo-Nazi group for several years, and still maintains a pro-white blog, watchdog groups have learned.

The Bulletin reports:

Rob Freeman is the husband of attorney Anna Zubkova, of Plainfield, who is a candidate in the Democratic primary for probate judge. The election is Tuesday.
Freeman’s blog, called “Mindweapons of Ragnarok,” has the tagline of “Once Aryan Skynet is self aware, it doesn’t matter who threw the switch.”
The Ragnarok website, which includes references to mythological and science fiction-based end-of world scenarios, includes entries promoting white pride. The latest entry is a reaction to his being “outed.”

“So I’m ‘prominent’ and a ‘neo-Nazi?’ the newest post states. “I don’t know that I’m prominent, and the neo-Nazis are the ones genociding my wife’s people in Eastern Ukraine, funded by the USA government to the tune of 5 billion dollars.”

Freeman writes:

Why shouldn’t we have a Congressional White Caucus? Why shouldn’t we have a National Association for White People, or La Blanca Raza? Why shouldn’t we have a European American Political Action Committee, or EAPAC analogous to The American Israeli Political Action Committee, or AIPAC?

“White children are taught to feel guilty for being white,” the post states. “White guilt makes white kids timid and ashamed of being white, and emboldens other races to attack them unprovoked.”

Freeman admits to being part of the extreme right wing movement years ago, “until it died out.”

According to an interview by the Bulletin, Zubkova and Freeman have been married for 17 years and have one daughter.

During the phone interview on Thursday, Zubkova said she does not subscribe to her husband’s views and her fitness for the bench should not be tarred by his opinions.

“He did not have those views when we married, but acquired them after,” she said. “What am I supposed to do? Divorce him? It’s not unusual for husbands and wives to have different views. As a judge, I can assure you I would not discriminate against anyone, even based on their beliefs. In my career, I’ve represented clients from many different backgrounds and races, all to the best of my knowledge and ability.”

And as a voter, I totally don’t believe her.

This image is from a previous post on her husband’s website:


Chairman William Holmes said the Democratic Town committee was unaware of Freeman’s views at the time of Zubkova’s endorsement.”If we had, there obviously would have been a conversation before we proceeded,” he said. “I would have proposed holding back any endorsement until we could have researched the matter.”

Zubkova will compete for the Probate District judgeship against fellow Democrat Andrea Truppa in Tuesday’s primary election.

Truppa declined to comment on the matter, except to say she was “very shocked.”

Plainfield First Selectman Paul Sweet, who endorsed Zubkova, told the Bulletin, learning about Freeman’s history was like “getting kicked in the stomach.”

“I feel (Zubkova) deceived us by omission and I feel misled,” he said. “I’m pulling my support and telling my friends and family to do the same. The signs on my lawn are coming up. There’s a lot of good people who made a decision to support her without having all the information they needed.”

    She may be a Democrat, but I’m sure her husband has to be a Republican. It must be one of those Mary Matalin / James Carville relationships.

      Careful RJ, people on the internet don’t get sarcasm, even when it’s italicized.

      • R.J. Carter August 8th, 2014 at 4:11 pm

        That’s what makes it so fun!

        • Anomaly 100 August 8th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

          Oh YOU!

        • Eric Trommater August 8th, 2014 at 4:23 pm

          To head RJ off at the pass I would like to point out that the whole Ragnaröck legend is a being used by a set of radical left wing end-of-timers who share quite a few of out progressive values while also being either completely out of their mind or (more likely) horrible human beings.
          RJ knows this and is waiting patiently for any good liberal to make some statement implying that all racists are conservatives so that he may shoot you down and continue his sarcastic fun.
          Have fun!

          • R.J. Carter August 8th, 2014 at 4:30 pm

            Ah, there all still hovering around my last comments, defending Robert Byrd and accepting his repentance at face value.

          • Eric Trommater August 8th, 2014 at 4:34 pm

            In italics of course

          • R.J. Carter August 8th, 2014 at 4:39 pm

            Of course!

          • burqa August 8th, 2014 at 8:06 pm

            There is no need to just accept one apology and admission of being wrong by Byrd at face value.
            Byrd had a history of standing against discrimination and his deeds speak loudly and demonstrate his words were sincere in the decades in which he not only said he was wrong, but said why and I never saw him, even toward the end of his life, become exasperated being asked about something 50 years in his past.
            What do we really want, anyway, from these people?
            One thing I’d like to see is for them to change. Constantly attacking and poking a finger in the face of a bigot usually just stiffens their resolve. Our society gets better when these people see the light so it is in our interest to find ways to persuade bigots to change and to be patient because it can take a long time, in some cases. But it is worth the effort.

      If you insist!

    • Anomaly 100 August 8th, 2014 at 4:19 pm

      Seriously, with that second image, this wussy would pass out cold if he walked through my awesome neighborhood.

      • RK Johnston August 8th, 2014 at 10:18 pm

        Or MINE, for that matter!

        • Anomaly 100 August 8th, 2014 at 10:34 pm

          I like my new neighborhood. I added some diversity to it, but they don’t’ seem to mind and I have to say that I’ve never had such incredibly kind neighbors before.

    • jasperjava August 8th, 2014 at 6:01 pm

      Well, duh, obviously. Something tells me he didn’t vote for Barack Obama.

  2. Eric Trommater August 8th, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    I feel for her supporters. I think any of us who have been involved in politics have been in the situation where we work hard on something like a probate campaign only to have the rug pulled out from under us by the candidate having wither a nutty spouse or something else that they didn’t reveal that made them unelectable. It always seems to be in August too when it’s too late to do anything.

    • burqa August 8th, 2014 at 7:52 pm

      I agree, if the supporters had no idea.
      I don’t believe the local party chairman who said he had no idea. Racists can’t keep it in. They make damned sure people know their views. Though they may not expound much at first, they will continue to revert to the subject, trying to be clever but never being convincing.

      On the other hand, I like to step back at times and get a laugh out of how ridiculous things can be, and this story cracks me up. Nicely done, Anomaly100!

  3. Rusty Shackleford August 8th, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    “What am I supposed to do? Divorce him?”

    Uhhh…YES? Tell him to stop being a racist asshat or you’re out. If he thinks being racist is more important than being with you, that’s HIS problem, not yours.

    • Khary A August 8th, 2014 at 5:08 pm

      THANK YOU!! just saying “oh that’s just my racist husband and his issues.” is total BS. I imagine that’s the same thing Eva Braun would have said. These same people get on the POTUS for going to a church where racially derisive statements were said and they want to tar and feather him but this is fine?!?!? Guess what Missy,? You’re racist as well for basically saying that this kind of behavior is acceptable. Let me introduce you to passive racism, you don’t have to wear a hood and a battle flag to be one you just have to say that the thought and action is OK.

      S.H.A.R.P.s we still live for the hunt, so be aware of that you goosestepping dickbag.

      • R.J. Carter August 8th, 2014 at 5:18 pm

        These same people get on the POTUS for going to a church where racially derisive statements were said and they want to tar and feather him but this is fine?!?!?

        Pretty sure the Republicans who felt angry about Obama’s attendance at Wright’s racist sermons would feel the same way about this Democrat’s marriage to her racist husband. Maybe I just got confused in the reading.

        • Khary A August 8th, 2014 at 5:53 pm

          Yeah, I’m not so concerned about the political affiliation as I am about societal standing. I don’t think every Republican is crazy and evil and I don’t think every Democrat is a savior to mankind. Those people who focused on Wright’s sermons were focused on the racial biases made there and they were of both major parties,I’m pretty sure that rob freeman was all up in arms about it. So when I say “these same people” I mean people who would bother to castigate someone for association there should have the same level of outrage here. I personally didn’t like what Wright had to say at all…that shiz is unhelpful to the plan. Had I been there I would have whipped a battery at him and told him exactly what kind of asshat he is for thinking that way. As for the republican feeling the same way about this incident, I’m sure they would share their outrage but is it for the idea that this thought is wrong or for the political leverage it can gain? That is anybody’s guess.

          • Dwendt44 August 8th, 2014 at 6:24 pm

            And even then, Wright’s sermons are usually, if not always, taken out of context. Criticizing the U. S. for using black men for experiments is a bit racist in and of itself, don’t you think?

          • burqa August 8th, 2014 at 7:41 pm

            I don’t think it is racist to criticize the U.S. for experiments on blacks.
            It happened.

    LOL the guy is spinning and dodging on his website, claiming he
    doesn’t have anything anti-other races on his site. JUST LOADS OF DOG
    WHISTLES. See: The pic above, which he feels is perfectly peachy. Also,
    he gives himself away with this tidbit:

    “The project of liberalism is doomed when multiculturalism succeeds. Keith Alexander”

    the dogwhistle? It’s the one Whitaker and other “Diversity = Genocide”
    adherents use constantly – “Multiculturalism”. You know, as in
    “tolerance of other races in your immediate vicinity”.


  5. majii August 8th, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    Thank you, Mr. Sweet, for pulling your support for Zubkova. Before she entered the race, she had to know that her husband is a white supremacist, and that if anyone found out, it would reflect badly on her and the local Democratic Party.

  6. Suzanne McFly August 8th, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    This is funny to see this here. I live near this area (Plainfield, Ct) and this was front page news today. Anyone who votes will know about the dickhead she married so she should just start picking her next line of work now.

  7. arc99 August 8th, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    Well hallelujah, goes to show you that one should never say never.

    Just when I thought that under no circumstances could I ever again envision myself voting Republican in any race, anywhere in the country, BOOM!

    Once again, the universe does its best to achieve balance.

  8. Daniel Jacobsen August 10th, 2014 at 12:28 am

    Bullshit …. No Democrat thinks like this !!!!!!! Just another republican doing whatever it takes to get in to office !!!!!
