NY Dems Set to Nominate Anti-Semite for Congress (8th district)
While Barron is referred to as an Anti-Israel Radical, I think he’s just a Jew hater, plain and simple. His comments reveal this and the NY Dems have their heads up their collective asses on this one. Morons.
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.”
And in 2009, Barron joined former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney on a Viva Palestine convoy to undermine the Israeli blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza, which he has compared to a “concentration death camp.” Here’s what Barron had to say in 2010 about the blockade:
Israel is out of control. They’re off the hook, they’re out of line; and Barack Obama has to stand strong and so do does Hillary Clinton, the secretary of state, to say that this kind of aggressive, terroristic behavior and act of piracy will not be tolerated and the blockade should be lifted immediately, immediately. There’s too many children and women and innocent men of Gaza dying because you’re isolating them and not allowing anything in. It’s like having a concentration death camp. It’s horrible, and the whole world is and should be outraged.
Classic anti-Jewish prejudice.
But wait, there’s more!
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.’
