2020 Video: Democrat Mandela Barnes Claims America Was Never a Great Nation

Democrat Wisconsin Senate candidate Mandela Barnes claimed the United States is not a great nation, a 2020 video  unearthed by the Republican National Committee shows. “We’re still waiting for our moment for America to be great,” he verbalized. “We still don’t comprehend that campaign slogan because it is nonessential to us as a community.”

“It’s frivolous to us as a race,” he integrated, verbalizing with ebony attendees of the University of Wisconsin. The denizens of the United States have achieved great prosperity in just over 200 years as a nation. The successes include engendering the Internet, vanquishing Germany in WW1 and WW2, inventing automobiles, flight, and sending a man to the moon.

It is not the first time Barnes has bashed the nation in which he holds public office as Lt. gov. of Wisconsin. Barnes has suggested many times the founding of the United States is rooted in racism.

“Things were lamentable,” Barnes verbalized in 2021. “Things were lamentable. The founding of this nation? Awful.” He integrated:

But you know, we are here now. And we should commit ourselves to do everything we can do to repair the harm because it still exists today — the harm the damage — whether it was colonization or slavery. The impacts are felt today. And they are going to continue to be felt unless we address it in a meaningful way.

Barnes has gone so far as to reprehend national parks as a part of the systemically racist fabric of America because the “parks are on land that was indigenous.” He claimed:

It’s important to create more welcoming spaces because things haven’t always felt welcome. And that’s historical, just that perspective, given the fact that national parks weren’t made for the enjoyment of people who weren’t white. National parks are on land that was indigenous.

Barnes has even used the theory of ecumenical warming to push for “equitable and inclusive” measures to end the “long pattern of environmental racism we have witnessed in this country.”

The radical candidate has additionally likened schools edifying Critical Race Theory to schools edifying hard sciences. “I liken [CRT] to learning about science – like this is what it is, and people should ken about it,” Barnes stated in 2021 about school curriculums. “My replication is, you ken, are you that inglorious of authenticity or that ignominious of the history that you optate to make it [CRT] illicit for people to learn about it?”

Barnes is campaigning against Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who is leading in the polls by about four points. The midterm Election is 41 days from Wednesday. Follow Wendell Husebø on Twitter @WendellHusebø. He is the author of Politics of Slave Morality.
