Green Party candidate Jill Stein is currently at three percent in the latest national polling, which would be a record result for the far-left party. But Stein and her running mate Ajamu Baraka have pretty radical views that seven percent of Coloradans have no problem with.

Wi-Fi is dangerous for the children

Jill Stein doesn’t think kids should be on the internet — not because of porn, but because Stein thinks wireless presents a medical risk for children. When speaking about children’s increased access to computers at a March 2016 event, someone asked “what about the wireless?”

“We should not be subjecting kids’ brains especially to that. And we don’t follow that issue in this country, but in Europe where they do, they have good precautions around wireless—maybe not good enough, because it’s very hard to study this stuff,” Stein responded. “We make guinea pigs out of whole populations and then we discover how many die. And this is like the paradigm for how public health works in this country and it’s outrageous, you know.”

Wi-Fi is not proven to be dangerous to our health. However, one study did show that babies absorb microwave radiation better than adults.

Running mate Ajamu Baraka said downed Malaysian flight MH17 was a “false-flag” operation

Baraka was on a radio show with holocaust denier Kevin Barrett on July 2014 when he brought up the idea of the downed jet over Ukraine being a “false-flag” operation. “The U.S. media is putting out the possibilities of this being done by the Russians or by the pro-Russian Ukrainians, but President Putin’s plane was flying through there shortly before this plane was shot down—it looks like Putin’s plane may have been targeted,” Barrett said.

“If so, obviously that wouldn’t have been done by the Russians or pro-Russian separatists quote unquote, that would have been done by the Kiev Zio-Nazi government. Which is what it is — these Zionist Jewish oligarchs, billionaire criminal dons, are funding Nazi street thugs,” Barrett added.

Baraka replied: “And when it’s raised, it’s raised as a conspiracy. I think that this is a—I was trying to find the citation, I remember reading, I can’t remember who it was, someone wrote about three weeks ago that we should expect false flag, a major false flag operation in eastern Ukraine that’s going to be blamed on the Russians. And that’s exactly what has happened.”

This isn’t the Green Party vice-presidential candidate’s only involvement with Barrett. Baraka has a piece published in an anthology Barrett created called ANOTHER French False Flag? Bloody Tracks from Paris to San Bernadino

Stein Supports Reparations, Jobs As A Right, And Suing Exxon Mobil 

The Green Party is fairly liberal to say the least. “My attorney general will prosecute Exxon for lying to the world about climate change. We need to end fossil fuels before it’s too late,” Stein tweeted out on August 11.

Stein supports a “Green New Deal” that will create 20 million jobs “by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030.” The Green Party candidate believes that jobs are a “right.”

Her platform states: “Create living-wage jobs for every American who needs work, replacing unemployment offices with employment offices. Government would be the employer of last resort, and the unemployed would have an enforceable right to make government provide work.”

Stein has also said she supports reparations for black Americans. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Black Congressmen Support Idea Of Reparations)

Stein’s platform does not mention any tax specifics about how these programs would be paid for. The main mention of tax hikes in her platform is: “Rewrite the entire tax code to be truly progressive with tax cuts for working families, the poor and middle class, and higher taxes for the richest Americans.”

Baraka has made some pretty intense comments regarding race

The Green Party vice-presidential candidate has called President Barack Obama an “Uncle Tom.” Baraka effectively double-downed on this comments Wednesday night at a CNN town hall.

“Well, you know, in that conversation, it was to a specialized audience that understood the context and the reason why I framed that in that way,” Baraka said to CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo then said, “Is there any good context when you call someone that?”

“Well, it’s not good to be Uncle Tom, either, no. There’s no good Tom, none of that. What I wanted to do was basically to tell people who had — who still had this hope in Barack Obama, that if we were concerned and serious about how we could displace white power, we had to demystify the policies and the positions of this individual,” Baraka replied. “I stand by that, even though it sounds very inflammatory, and provocative, and probably very strange to this massive audience here.”

While Stein’s campaign is hoping to gain the support of disaffected Sanders supporters, Baraka is certainly not helping. He said that the Sanders’ campaign was “an expression of the moral and political crisis of Western radicalism.” He added that the Sanders campaign was “a tacit commitment to Eurocentrism and the assumptions of normalized white supremacy.”
