As ye sow...

...so shall ye reap.

It's Flag Day, so let's remind folks what happens when you've spent a lifetime espousing the polar opposite of what the US flag stands for.

Jerrold Nadler is one of NYS's cadre of far-left congressional members—see here and here. And yet he's outraged when—surprise!—he reaps the whirlwind.  At The Hill:

Charles Barron calls Robert Mugabe and Moammar Gadhafi his “heroes.” He compared Israel’s government to the Nazis, says he won’t salute the American flag, and once offered that he wanted to “slap” the nearest white person.
 
And come January, he could be central Brooklyn’s newest congressman, if voters here give him an upset victory in the Democratic primary on June 26.
 
Barron, a longtime New York City Councilman, is running for the congressional seat being vacated by the retiring Rep. Edolphus Towns (D), a 30-year House veteran whom Barron tried to unseat in 2006 and again earlier this year.
 
With much deeper coffers and establishment support, Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries is the favorite in the race, but a run of key endorsements — including the surprise backing of Towns — has given Barron hope for a win in a primary for which turnout is expected to be low. The 8th district is heavily Democratic, meaning the June 26 winner likely will cruise to election in November.
 
A former Black Panther, Barron is known for his rhetorical bombs, and in a House that will be devoid of departing Reps. Ron Paul (R-Texas), Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) and Barney Frank (D-Mass.), he could easily claim the mantle of most outspoken member, and arguably the most radical.
But here's the best part:
...On Monday, a group of Jewish officials, including Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), held a press conference calling Barron an “anti-Semite” and warning against his election...
I'd like to think that Jerry's learned his lesson—but I doubt it.

If Barron wins the primary, Nader and self respecting Democrats may have little choice but to form a Democrats for whoever is the Republican nominee or wage a write in campaign. How could they support Barron if he wins the primary? Want to bet that they will support him though or at least not oppose him?
