Double Standard? Wisconsin Senate Candidate Once Railed Against ‘White Male Entitlement’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Julie Henszey, a Democrat candidate for the 5th Senate District seat held by departing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield), has posted some inflammatory rants on her personal Facebook page – mostly diatribes against white Christian men and their “power.”

“When all the homosexuals are converted, when all the minorities are silenced or displaced, when women’s vaginas are locked up (because that’s really what you are trying to control), when the only people left with a voice and power are white, straight men, will you be happy? Will you be fulfilled, that you are closer to God, that others respect you? What’s the point of ‘winning’ when everyone else loses? Here’s the truth: We all Lose. You too,” Henszey posted on Jan. 25, 2017.
Reached for comment on Tuesday, Henszey said she had an appointment at the time and would call back later in the day. She did not. MacIver News Service attempted to reach the candidate again on Wednesday, but the voicemail message seeking comment went unanswered.

Henszey apparently has removed the questionable posts from her personal Facebook account.

Her inflamed online comments have abated in the months after moving from “grassroots activist” in leadership positions with Indivisible and Citizen Action of Wisconsin, left-wing organizations known for intemperate rhetoric and vitriol for all things Trump, into the more cautious world of campaign politics.'
