Madison, WI – Representative Jesse Kremer (R-Kewaskum) issued the following statements following Rep. Mandela Barnes’ (D-Milwaukee) statement associating Christianity with hate and violence:

“I am fed up with the disgusting and divisive nature of some of the leaders in our state and nation. The politicization begins with our President, but has reared its ugly head here in our own state.

“I am calling out someone who should be a leader, but has instead become a laughing stock. Rep. Mandela Barnes, who is hoping to become a Senator by ousting one of his own for not being radical enough, is blaming Christians for the evil act of war on U.S. soil by an ISIS allegiant this past weekend. This guy, a sitting Wisconsin representative, is an absolute loon of a ‘leader’ doing everything he can to divide and conquer, politicizing a horrific event – the modus operandi of our own President. The Orlando rampage was derived from pure evil and hate – something that Christians and Muslims both denounce.

“Our country has been torn apart by President Obama‘s divisive racism, hatred of Christianity and lambasting of the military and law enforcement. This terrible belief system has obviously crept into our own statehouse. The division must come to an end, and it should start with leaders like Rep. Barnes.

“The representative resides in a community that is crumbling around him, but doesn’t even have the courage and fortitude to address the real problems in his own backyard – an explosion of crime, the breakdown of the family and inner city youth who are thirsting for a strong, honest, father-figure leader with integrity. Rep. Barnes could be that strong, black leader – but that would take hard work and perhaps some criticism by his own colleagues.

“I, for one, have had enough.”

    So the man who calls President Obama racist and anti-Christian says divisive rhetoric must stop? Fascinating.

  2. WashCoRepub says:

    I’m hopeful the Democratic Party of WI is hitching their wagon to Rep. Barnes for a bright future. Also hope he keeps the press releases coming; tying the Orlando shooting to Christians was pretty breathtaking, and I look forward to more bold and intuitive leaps of logic such as this one.

  3. Vincent Hanna says:

    Like the GOP is hitching their wagon to Trump? Please read this WashCoRepub. You might learn something and understand that Barnes is getting at.

  4. Jake currently of the MKE says:

    The Republican rep of the potty police. Republicans are Fascists in this state. And conservative Christians are just as hateful and bigoted and conservative Muslims.
