Barnes Stokes Racial Hatred on MLK Day By Spreading Lie

The video makes it clear that the original characterization of the encounter touted by leftist activists was wrong, and yet here is our Lt. Governor – days after the truth has been revealed – spreading a lie. Shameful.

Barnes, speaking at UW-Madison, also waded into the viral social media controversy about an encounter near the Lincoln Memorial between a group of white teenagers wearing “Make America Great Again” gear and a Native American man.

Barnes called the Native American, Nathan Phillips, an “American hero” and the teenagers a “mob” who surrounded and taunted him — although information that surfaced after the encounter caused some to temper their initial condemnation of the teens.


Barnes, while discussing what he described as work still to be done, said: “Unfortunately, America can still be a mob of high school students wearing red hats, inspired by what they see in the nation’s highest office.”

    Doubling down on lies revealed is a tried and true “Chicago Way” tactic. Deny reality for the duration of a news cycle knowing another dumpster fire will divert attention soon enough. It’s unrealistic to expect them to abandon what works so well.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann


    Shows the total liberal hate towards Christians.

    Barnes needs to apologize!!!

  3. jjf

    Merlin, can you think of any other national politicians who are using that technique?

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who is using a total false witness story from the propaganda laden, tissue of lies, maninstream liberal media to shut down a Christian high school?

    If you come up with a name, I will be truly fascinated.


  5. Le Roi du Nord


    mer won’t answer, so I’ll name some for him;  trump, pence, sarah sanders, mcconnell, ryan, conway, guiliani, …………

  6. Merlin

    Duuude, I still have a day job. The fact that the success of the Chicago Way is rapidly becoming mainstream is not a positive development. The hard part today is discerning what is a lie when so many so self-servingly distort the truth.

    Pence? C’mon, man!

  7. dad29

    Barnes is a racist and a hater.  And if Evers has half-a-brain, he’ll have bodyguards nearby whenever he’s with Barnes.

  8. jjf

    Kevin, you ever watch “Rashomon“?

    I’m not surprised that high schoolers can be observed behaving badly.

    I’m not surprised that a non-profit, non-political Catholic private male-only school would think it’s groovy and appropriate to have a field trip to participate in a political protest about abortion.

    I’m not surprised that all sorts of attention-seeking activists would try to inject themselves into situations on a DC mall.

  9. dad29

    it’s groovy and appropriate to have a field trip to participate in a political protest about abortion.

    Groovy, eh?  Still living in the ’60’s, John?

    It’s a moral duty to protest babykilling.  Someday you’ll learn there’s a difference between “politics” and “morals.”  Or maybe not.

  10. jjf

    Oh, the Sixties… I remember them well.  The girls.  The parties.  The chocolate milk after our nap on our mats.

    Do churches have a moral duty to pay taxes?

  11. Le Roi du Nord


    I’m glad you are still employed.  Hope you pay your fair share of the wall, and foxconn.

    Pence, you question??  For sure.  He is right at the top of the resident sycophants, comparing trump to MLK.  For a woman fearing christian he is awfully dishonest…

  12. MHMaley

    Respecting your elders is something I learned before I hit Catholic kindergarten .
    I listened to the lawyerly response from the 16 year old today and watched the video’s .

    There is no consensus about the High Schoolers actions but as usual in this never accept responsibility culture , parents don’t admit that their kids do anything wrong .
    Just lawyer up and admit nothing .

    Sorry Dad, women could care less about what you think is the moral thing to do with their body .

  13. dad29

    Why sure, Maley.  You know the minds of all the women, right?  And by the way, your complete ignorance of biology 101 shows again:  it ain’t HER body that’s being killed.

    When my kids were right, I did what any real parent would do:  jam it up the butts of the bad guys.  You could ask my children but I won’t let them talk to you….

    In the case at hand, the MSM will be paying large dollars in libel awards.  VERY large dollars.  College-education with room and board, all four years, plus a car and a home after graduation -sized awards.  Schadenfreude abounds!

  14. Kevin Scheunemann

    I am thoroughly sickened by the comments 3 liberals on this thread.

    I want to vomit at the anti-Christian bigotry.

  15. Le Roi du Nord


    Sorry to hear you are sickened.  A long-term Rx for truth, knowledge and common sense is guaranteed to cure what ails you..  Best of luck with your treatment.

  16. Kevin Scheunemann


    I am sickened by your attack on these Christian high schoolers, and their school, for behaving very well and Christian like….

    While the Black Hebrew Israelite group shouted racial slurs, yelked these kids were a product of incest, and hurled gay slurs and you say nothing!!!

    You punish Christian kids actinggood and reward evil, especially the slanderous liberal media.

    That lack of moral clarity, makes you morally reprehensible. I’ve never been so repulsed of the hateful godless commenters on here.

  17. Le Roi du Nord


    I made no attack on any christian high schoolers or their school.  I dare you to prove it.  Why must you be so dishonest ??  So un-christian of you…..

    I punished no one, nor did I yelk at anyone.  (Is that word in the conservative lexicon??)  And you can’t prove that I did.

    If seeking the truth, not intentionally trying to mislead anyone, believing in knowledge, being curious, and being intolerant of bullies, makes me reprehensible, I can live with it.  You should try it, might improve your penchant for dishonesty.

  18. Kevin Scheunemann

    By taking focus off the bad behaving liberals “Hebrew black Israelites), not denouncing mainstream medais slander of the kids, not denouncing celebrities offering sex forr violence against Nick, not denouncing what Barnes has done….you are attacking the kids by derailing the discussion off the horrible liberal actors here.

    That is what you do.

    Make some denouncement of evil here.

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    I’ll denounce some evil here; you are a self promoting, jingo-jabbering, willfully ignorant, and intolerant hypocrite, who views himself as the only authority and arbiter of the “absolute truth”.  You aren’t a conservative, but rather a bully.  Your vision of the world is not what I want for my kids, grand kids, or my friends, neighbors or anyone else for that matter.

    When you want to talk about the value of truth, knowledge, fairness, empathy, values, etc., maybe then we can have some meaningful discourse.  But if you prefer to spew forth your assumptions, half-truths, whole lies, and distortion of reality then I’ll welcome the opportunity to be the loyal opposition.

    Have a great day.

  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    Thanks for backing up my point.

    It is OK in your book to let evil bully Christians.

  21. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, k, you made that up.  Why must you lie?  How unchristian of you.  Hypocrite.

  22. Kevin Scheunemann


    You have failed to muster up any real denouncement of the evil “black Hebrew Israelites” cult, the slanderous, fraudulent, liberal media, or the many celebrities threatening violence against the Covington kids.

    Show that you are against the hate and evil.  Denounce someone beside me, someone who is simply against all the evil here.


  23. Le Roi du Nord


    This is what you asked for, so I complied.  “Make some denouncement of evil here”.   But, like everything else, you have you own view of things, and have absolutely no respect for the views of others.  Truth, honesty, and knowledge will overcome evil.  You should try it sometime.

  24. Kevin Scheunemann


    I bet you work up more anger and incredulity at your dog peeing on the carpret.

    Really underwhelming for the hate and evil leveled against these innocent kids.

  25. Le Roi du Nord


    I have never, ever, leveled any hate against the Covington kids, or any other for that matter.  You are lying.

  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    I didn’t say you did.

    Your stark silence against those that did smear those poor kids is the problem.

  27. Le Roi du Nord

    “Really underwhelming for the hate and evil leveled against these innocent kids”.

    You really ought to think before you type.

  28. Kevin Scheunemann


    Or you should read in context by including line before that.

  29. Le Roi du Nord


    Those are your words, and now you deny them.  You blabber on about your courage of conviction, yet turn coward when caught in a lie.  No urprise.

    And you, of all people, should never criticize anyone for taking things out of context.  You are the master at that.

    PS:  My dog doesn’t pee on the carpet, you lied about that as well.

  30. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m saying you took it out of context by not including line before.

    At issue is your silence on denouncing the bad actors in Covington situation.

    That is as disgusting as those assasinating the character of these Christian teens.

  31. Le Roi du Nord


    Your dog may pee on the carpet, mine doesn’t.  There, I addressed that line. Again.

    You continue to lie about things when painted in a corner by your own hubris.  You should seek help.

  32. Kevin Scheunemann


    Will you denounce the attacks and threats against Covington kids?

    Call for media and celebrities threatening violence to apologize?

  33. jjf

    Kevin, is that the way you want the world to work?  That we should be demanding each other to “call out” and “denounce” the flaws you spot in others?  What’s that Bible quote about the mote in the eye?

  34. Le Roi du Nord


    Sure, when you denounce the adulterous, p#%%y-grabbing chronic liar in the WH.  Or when you repent and apologize for all the lies you have told about me, liberals or folks that believe in truth, knowledge, and honesty.

    Your move.

  35. Kevin Scheunemann


    When there is an ongoing smear and hate by godless liberalism against Christians, yes, it needs to be called out.

    Liberal hate is pervasive against Christians m, so it is voluminous to point out.

    Isn’t that what liberal lexicon constantly does in its religious code? Point “hate” out based on victim status?

  36. Kevin Scheunemann


    We have been over this.

    Point to specific comment to back up your slanderous accusation. You always come up empty.

    I have long denounced Trumps adulterous affairs and his treatment of women. But thanks to liberals and Bill Clinton it is no longer a reason to remove him from office! I love the idea of President Pence!

  37. Le Roi du Nord


    And you use clinton as a crutch and excuse for your lack of action.  Shameful.

    And you really need to get up to speed on the definition of slanderous.

  38. Kevin Scheunemann


    I’m all for Trump resigning, President Pence would be great!

    How much more do you want?

    I have always been consistent on that.

    I was only asking for 1 “lie”, in form of accurate, in context quote” to back up your slander, you always come up empty.

    If you don’t have the goods, don’t make the slanderous accusation.

  39. Le Roi du Nord

    “The earth is 6000 years old”.

    There, called your bluff.

  40. Kevin Scheunemann



    That is not my quote.

  41. Paul

    Careful Kevin.

    Someone attempted to access my account last Monday and emailed a threat. It was from the 715 area code.

    (Screencapped in case it’s deleted.)

  42. Le Roi du Nord


    Yes it is.  Are you ashamed of your former position, or have you been enlightened by knowledge?  Reality sure is troublesome for you.


  43. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is not my quote, that is your quote trying to summarize what I actually said.

    You didn’t get it quite as wrong as the Roman Catholic quote, which you have yet to apologize for.

    I’ll tell you what, you apologize for your slander on my Roman Catholicism position, and I’ll relay what I really said about Biblical Creation?

    Fair enough?

  44. Le Roi du Nord


    The quote re: 6000 YO earth is verbatim from you when you were trying to justify/rationalize the ridiculous comments by former legislator Cremer.

    The catholics aren’t/pope isn’t christian(s) came from you in several threads over the span of approximately 18 months.  You were making all sorts of claims about how only your version of christianity is privy to the absolute truth and that others that hold differing beliefs weren’t really christians.

    I don’t really care if you are intentionally denying your previous claims, or if you truly are forgetful, but those are your words, k.  Or are you just embarrassed that somebody actually caught you in another lie?

  45. Kevin Scheunemann


    Still got my Creation quote wrong.

    You doubled down on your malicious slander on what I said about Roman Catholicism. I can’t help it if you have a comprehension problem.

    Have you ever been tested mental slowness?

  46. Jason

    >Have you ever been tested mental slowness?

    Testing here shows he’s got it in spades.  Over and over with this guy and his lies and lack of comprehension.   Yet he comes back every day like it’s a new day and his first post here.  Not sure why you even bother with him any more, just ignore the noise – he isn’t convincing anyone.

  47. jjf

    Keep it simple, Kevin.  Tell us what Dad29 has wrong about Christ and religion.  I’ll make the popcorn.

  48. Le Roi du Nord


    You have provided nothing to prove that, so I’ll stick with what you said several times in the past.  If you want to walk back that original statement that is your choice.  That would surprise no one as you are as flip-floppy as 45.

    j:  FYI;  Every day IS a new day.  Doing your “Groundhog Day” imitation is fruitless..

  49. Kevin Scheunemann


    I don’t know.   I have not discussed theological issues with him enough to form an opinion.

    I am certain he believes in Christ’s unmerited grace for redemption from our sins.

    If he does, that is very good.


    If you can’t apologize for your malicious mistatements–even after I corrected you—it is clear you are not interested in truth, or accuracy.

    No point in futrhter discussion if you can’t act honestly.

  50. Le Roi du Nord


    You have never, ever corrected anything.  You just make excuses, deflect, exaggerate, assume, and change the subject.  No apologies forthcoming.

  51. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not True!

    Just this week…

    I apologized for calling you “buttercup”, since some were offended by that.

    Now you have 3 things to correct in you misinformed representations of my positions.

  52. Le Roi du Nord


    Yes. True !!

    I don’t care if you apologized for calling someone a “buttercup”.  But I find it disgusting when you continually lie to promote your self-promoting agenda.  You have never, ever apologized for lying..

  53. Kevin Scheunemann


    Produce the “lie”, through an accurate, in context quote, and we can discuss.

    However you should apologize for getting my Roman Catholicism comments completely wrong.
