Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Bernie Sanders shared stage with 9/11 conspiracy theorist
October 24, 2018
Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have come under fire for sharing a stage with a progressive activist who is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.
Sanders appeared alongside Baldwin and other Democrats Monday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, urging people to vote for Democrats in the upcoming November midterm election and support Baldwin’s re-election against Republican Leah Vukmir.
But before Baldwin and Sanders took the stage, a Chicago-based progressive activist and hip-hop artist known as Solo Littlejohn warmed up the crowd.
But Littlejohn’s social media reviewed by Fox News reveal that he shared a conspiracy theory that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks were staged, suggesting that the buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.
The Myspace post from 2009 also includes a link to InfoWars.
He also listed his “influences” on Myspace, including Cuban revolutionary leader Ernesto Che Guevara, Black Panthers’ co-founder Huey P. Newton, and “all real revolutionaries.”
Vukmir’s campaign slammed the Democrat for campaigning with the conspiracy theorist.
“Senator Baldwin — who supported impeaching President Bush, voted against the resolution in honor of the 9/11 victims and sided with the 9/11 mastermind against CIA administrator Gina Haspel — is now campaigning with a 9/11 conspiracy theorist,” Jess Ward, the campaign manager, said in a statement.
“Wisconsinites deserve a senator who will protect America when we are attacked, not side with our enemies.”
