“Barnette surged in recent polls in the upcoming Pennsylvania Republican US Senate primary, putting her in a dead heat between Donald Trump-endorsed former TV star Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund manager David McCormick.”
We recently profiled Kathy Barnette, a candidate in the Pennsylvania Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, who has become a sensation after her rapid rise in the polls.
People on both sides have noticed the growing interest in her, and she is now under fire from every direction.
CNN is lazily going after her in the same way they attack all conservatives:
Surging GOP candidate Kathy Barnette has long history of bigoted statements against gays and Muslims
Surging Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Kathy Barnette has a history of anti-Muslim and anti-gay statements. In many tweets, Barnette also spread the false conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama is a Muslim.
In one speech uploaded to YouTube in 2015, Barnette forcefully argued it was OK to discriminate against Muslims and compared rejecting Islam to “… rejecting Hitler’s or Stalin’s worldviews.” In comments on her radio show, she said accepting homosexuality would lead to the accepting of incest and pedophilia. One post she wrote called a transgender person “deformed” and “demonic.”
Barnette surged in recent polls in the upcoming Pennsylvania Republican US Senate primary, putting her in a dead heat between Donald Trump-endorsed former TV star Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund manager David McCormick.
It’s not just the left, though. Trump, who has endorsed Dr. Oz, is also questioning Barnette’s viability while saying he will back her in the general election if she clinches the nomination.
The Hill reports:
Trump warns GOP voters against Barnette in Pennsylvania Senate race
Former President Trump warned Pennsylvania Republican voters on Thursday to vote against Kathy Barnette in the state’s Senate primary next Tuesday, putting his muscle into an effort to quash an eleventh-hour surge by the conservative activist.
Trump, who has endorsed celebrity cardiothoracic surgeon Mehmet Oz in the race, said that “Kathy Barnette will never be able to win the General Election against the Radical Left Democrats” and raised questions over her biography — while indicating he’d still back her in a general if she does indeed clinch the GOP nomination.
“She has many things in her past which have not been properly explained or vetted, but if she is able to do so, she will have a wonderful future in the Republican Party — and I will be behind her all the way,” he said. “Dr. Oz is the only one who will be able to easily defeat the Crazed, Lunatic Democrat in Pennsylvania. A vote for anyone else in the Primary is a vote against Victory in the Fall!”
On Wednesday night, even Sean Hannity of FOX News dug into some of Barnette’s old tweets before having on Dr. Oz, who made some dubious claims about Barnette, such as saying she wanted to build a statue of Obama, which I suspect is the twisting of something she said in sarcasm:
Barnette has since issued this challenge to Hannity and Oz:
I'm blocking out 9pm on Monday, just for you Sean.
Ratings will be huge! See you then.

The Pennsylvania primary is next Tuesday. If Barnette pulls out a surprise win, the real slime will start to fly in the liberal media.DONATE
