Surging Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Kathy Barnette has a history of anti-Muslim and anti-gay statements. In many tweets, Barnette also spread the false conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama is a Muslim.
In one speech uploaded to YouTube in 2015, Barnette forcefully argued it was OK to discriminate against Muslims and compared rejecting Islam to "... rejecting Hitler's or Stalin's worldviews." In comments on her radio show, she said accepting homosexuality would lead to the accepting of incest and pedophilia. One post she wrote called a transgender person "deformed" and "demonic."
"You are not a racist if you reject Islam, or if you reject Muslims, because they are not a race of people. They are a particular view. They are people that have a particular view of the world, and we have a right to discriminate against worldviews," she said. "We discriminated against Hitler's Nazi Germany view of the world, right? That was a worldview. That's how he saw the world around him. And we discriminated against it. We rejected it. We rejected Stalin's view ... of the world, right? Because that's a particular view of the world that we don't agree with."

Even here, where I live, this isn't going to fly. Sure, some people will be ok with denouncing an entire group of people based upon their religion, but many people will not be ok with it and there is no way it will work in a statewide general election.
Pennsylvania is a purple state, not a deep red state. You have to be able to fit within a certain window to win the state as a Republican. The window is fairly wide, but there are limits to its width.
Kathy Barnette isn't going to be the next senator from PA. Based upon some of what I'm learning about her in the last 48 hours or so, I'd actually probably support Bushie Hedge Fund McCormick before I'd support her. Because he might have a shot to win the general, whereas she has no shot at all.
The seat is currently a GOP seat. If Barnette wins the primary this Tuesday, that's over.
I trust Trump and will be voting for Oz.
More of Barnette's comments at the link.
God has already punished that POS once. May it continue.
Oh yeah, I can’t stand the KFile guy. He’s trash.
That said, these are things Barnette has stated in the past. The Dems WILL use them against her in the general. They will destroy her with this stuff.
I’ve been wondering why the Dems and the media are tripping over themselves to push her candidacy.
Now I get it. Easy pickings for the general election.
Program note 2: Pennsylvania is a rigged state, and much like in Michigan, there are Assistant Democrats assisting in the rigging.
BTW - I have no dog in this fight - this is Pennsylvania's problem. Just dropping program notes.
Ok this is the sort of thing I was asking people to produce on another thread when they were trashing her for only forgetting dates. Yeah I don’t see how this would fly in the general election.
Maybe this is why Trump has been keeping his distance from her, despite the optics.
Yes. Without a doubt.
The Democrat vote fraud machine has a PATTERN that it uses to rig US Senate races especially.
It creates some sort of "controversy" that will "explain" how Barnette got crushed by her Democrat opponent.
This frees the state operatives to rig the "race" as hard as they can.
I discovered this with my Obama 2008 Vote Fraud detector.
This absolutely will not fly in the PA cities or suburbs. It won’t.
Heck, it won’t fly where I’m at and there are plenty of red areas and Trump signs out my way. More signs than I can count.
You have to be able to keep the suburb margins reasonable (Dems not win by too much) to win the state.
With this stuff, Barnette will get blown out in the suburbs. She can’t win the state.
It’s clear Trump knows more about her than he’s letting on.
I’m sure he’s aware of this kind of thing.
That sounds like way too much realism for somebody who plans to spend time in Washington, DC. Off with her head.
Yeah. Plenty of shenanigans here, in my opinion.
As you said, this gives the excuse or the “why” Barnette lost, no matter what methods are used to ‘ensure’ the loss.
From CNN, whcih means presumptively false.
Ted Stevens of Alaska with the phony charges.
Todd Akins (MO) and Mourdock (IN) in 2012 with the "rapey" comments.
There's more, but I'll have to do some more research.
Even if Barnette won, they'd still rig it into a loss with their captive counties. You can make bank on it.
I’ve been wondering why the Dems and the media are tripping over themselves to push her candidacy. Just so.
Another "fortified election", brought to you by The Machine.
Barnette is teh only one who won’t wilt on the debate stage.
Electable candidates like the Bushie hedge fund manager and the doctor who wants to transgender little kids almost always lose.
Barnette is as unelectable as Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan.
welcome to FR, newbie.
So you just joined FR a coupla weeks ago to post far left propaganda from “We always lie” CNN and expect to be taken seriously? Don't make me laugh.
I think it is unfortunate that people will allow inconsequential words to affect them so much that they end up voting for candidates that would sell your children.
They're not. They're sending their RINO assistants to smear and target the uppity one.
