Mandela Barnes has Chuck Schumer furious after another jaw-dropping statement got unearthed

Wisconsin Democrat Lieutenant Governor and Senate hopeful Mandela Barnes is a far-Left ideologue.

Democrats had been hoping that some of his more exotic political stances could be kept under the radar, but their candidate just keeps getting in his own way.

Now, Mandela Barnes has Chuck Schumer furious after another jaw-dropping statement got unearthed.

Mandela Barnes has thoughts about how the United States of America became the richest country in the world – and those thoughts don’t reflect kindly upon the work ethic and can-do attitude of everyday Americans.

A resurfaced video from 2021 shines a light on how Wisconsin Senate candidate Mandela Barnes believes it is “foolish” to think the United States’ wealth was “justly earned.”

Video shows shocking anti-capitalism statements

In a video released by WKOW over the weekend, Barnes said, “I didn’t even get to the point about Critical Race Theory. That’s something else too. You know, it would be foolish to assume that the wealth of America was earned justly.”

The video was from a 2021 Portage Area Chamber of Commerce event billed as a question and answer session to discuss “issues of racism and systemic racism as they affect rural communities.”

When speaking at the event about the founding of the United States, Barnes said, “Things were bad. Things were terrible. The founding of this nation? Awful.”

Barnes has flatly stated that he wants to “stymie capitalism” and free enterprise would put the world on a “path to destruction.”

Barnes supports the entire leftist menu of radical policies, including advocating for allowing felons to retain the right to vote and defunding “over-bloated” police departments.

So far Barnes has received endorsements from a grand total of two police officers and there is little wonder why.

He once said, “Police don’t prevent crimes from happening. We don’t live in a surveillance state, nor would you want to.”

Even he doesn’t believe his own rhetoric

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, “Barnes averaged more than 13½ hours of security protection a day — including weekdays, weekends and holidays — at a daily cost to the state of $660 for patrol officers’ wages. That’s more than 10 times the number of hours as his predecessor.”

There’s some pretty solid evidence that the Senate hopeful’s past statements are coming back to haunt him.

Three of the last five public polls have shown incumbent Ron Johnson in the lead and Johnson has also pulled ahead in the Real Clear Politics polling average.

When it comes to advocating for ideas that are out of sync with the state of Wisconsin, Barnes can run but he can’t hide.
