N.Y. Democrats Poised to Nominate Former Black Panther, Anti-Israel Radical for Congress

New York City councilman Charles Barron may be on his way to winning the Democratic nomination for Congress in New York's Eighth District, despite a history of racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Israel rhetoric. Barron, who has earned the support of retiring congressman Edolphus Towns, would be representing a district with a sizable Jewish population. Charles Barron

In 2010, he told a reporter that in New York's Crown Heights neighborhood, Jews "only make up 20 percent of the population, but they've always walked these streets as if they owned them, and acted as if they are the only ones in the community that matter."

Barron once referred to a fellow city councilman, who is Jewish, as a "coward" whose actions on the council were to "satisfy the Jewish lobby."

Barron has also called into question the legitimate existence of Israel. "Where should we start [the discussion]?" he said at a Brooklyn church in 2010. "Should we start with the 1906 Zionist Convention, or in 1914, with the Balfour Declaration? With Menachem Begin, the terrorists, all the wars, you want to discuss Israel becoming a state in 1948 when it should not have? Who are the terrorists? You want to talk about the definition of terrorism? How do you define acts of piracy?"

Why would any Jew vote for this creature unless they are such Democrat controlled zombies that they lack any self will?

One of the most odious and toxic race hustlers on the New York scene. Should win in a landslide.

Barron says he does not salute the flag or believe in the Pledge of Allegiance. Barron holds the view that saying the pledge is “a lie” that states equality and justice for all, which is not true for American blacks.[94] In 2004, he strongly objected to a move by the City Council that would begin each meeting with a voluntary Pledge..

Racist cmmunist pig...

This candidate has the following views about Mugabe: "On September 12, 2002, Barron was host to Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe at New York City Hall, praising him as a liberator for black Africans in then-Rhodesia. Among the attendees of the event were about a dozen city councillors besides Barron, most of whom were Black or Latino.[40]"

This candidate has the following views about capitalism: "Barron has criticized capitalism, calling it a "deeply-rooted illness" within America."[96]

This man would gladly institute a Mugabe-style government in America.

He is a true enemy of American freedom.

Barrons is the a**hole who stood up at the podium during a “Ah Wants Mah Munny” (i.e. “reparations”) protest and said he wanted to “slap the first whitey I see across the head.”

Since he comes from that hotbed of radicalism in NYC, I guess he’s what counts for “mainstream.”

Thanks for the ping. This is both shocking and disgusting, and people need to know about it.

At a 2002 rally in support of reparations for slavery, he said: “I want to go up to the closest white person and say, ‘You can’t understand this, it’s a black thing’ and then slap him, just for my mental health.”

I assume the Southern Poverty Law Center is on this... /s

Homeland Security too... /s AND the Washington Post and New York Times. /s

Charles Barron is right out to the Al Sharpton school of black racism, antisemitism, and anti-Americanism.

Let's hope that he never gets a seat in Congress, unlike his ideological soulmate, Cynthia McKinney. Far better that he returns to the New York City Council with its motley collection of bigots, mental midgets, and nanny statists.

Unlike Sharpton, Barron hasn't actually started any race riots leading to deaths.

. Far better that he returns to the New York City Council with its motley collection of bigots, mental midgets, and nanny statists.
He's term limited. And there are three good members of the city council. The best of this small lot, Dan Halloran, is a pagan (no seriously, a Theodist) and is running for Congress against a Korean Democrat in a new district made up of most of retiring Gary Ackerman's district.

He is a typical member of the black caucus = racist, anti-American, whitey-hating socialists.

Charles Barron.... a really nasty mofo. Used to see him on Sean Hannity TV show too often. He is not stupid, is kind of slick.

I’m waiting for Obama to denounce Charles Barron. If he were a white Republican we know that Romney would be forced to denounce by the entire MSM
