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?"

Thanks for the ping. This is both shocking and disgusting, and people need to know about it.
I assume the Southern Poverty Law Center is on this... /s
Homeland Security too... /s AND the Washington Post and New York Times. /s
I don’t think that either of us will be holding our breath.
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.

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.
21.0% White, 63.0% Black, 2.7% Asian, 17.2% Hispanic, 0.4% Native American, 2.0% other
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.
Well it looks like we will have another Communist in Washington..
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
