GAGOP CHAIRMAN: JIM BARKSDALE IS A NEO-SOCIALIST

September 20, 2016

Last week, millionaire moneyman Jim Barkdale told WUOG listeners that “capitalism just doesn’t work.” He railed against Wall Street, U.S. trade policy, and profitable corporations in America.  In response to Barksdale’s radical rhetoric, the Georgia Republican Party issued the following statement:

“Jim Barksdale is a neo-socialist with a guilty conscience,” said Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett.  “He believes capitalism is the catalyst for inequality and prefers a dangerous partnership between government and business to create and redistribute wealth.

“Obviously, Barksdale is beginning to feel guilty for his lush, lavish lifestyle.  He thinks attacking the very system that made him millions will finally endear him to far fringes of the Democratic Party.  But no one is falling for his clever ruse.  The only thing worse than a neo-socialist is a hypocrite – and Jim Barksdale is both.”
