Charles Barron continues to make news as well as no sense

News

Charles Barron, New York City councilman, former Black Panther and Democratic congressional candidate is profiled in The Daily Beast. He continues to say things that have absolutely no meaning whatsoever:

On a recent weekday, Barron was holding court on the sidewalk outside a restaurant called Sista’s Place that doubles as his Bed-Stuy district campaign headquarters, glad-handing passers-by. He is a local celebrity of sorts, with high name recognition due to his headline-grabbing statements and the yellow campaign posters on virtually every storefront. A middle-aged man named Keith stops and says that he’s heard that Barron is against the Constitution. “Naw, man, I’m the biggest patriot there is,” Barron says with hands clasped over his Nehru jacket–clad heart. “I love this country so much that I want it to change.”

"I love my mathlete son so much that I want him to play football!"

At a recent town hall-type forum in New York Barron articulated his qualifications to serve as a congressman: “I plan on bringing a movement to Washington.“ ”I bring movement.“ ”I bring organization.“ ”I bring leadership.”

A Republican strategist in the Beast's profile says it best. “He’ll go on the floor on the [House], and he’ll make statements where he will talk crazy shit.”

Yeah, probably.
