KS Socialist Teen Sent Revenge Porn But Wins Primary

UPDATED BELOW.

This is what happens when voters don’t pay attention: a KS teen and avowed socialist, a kid who once sent revenge porn, won his Democrat primary for state representative. What’s more, he defeated a seven-term KS lawmaker on a platform of pure socialism. Even worse, since he has no GOP opponent, come November, this kid may sail into the Kansas statehouse in Topeka.

Toto, this doesn’t look like Kansas anymore.

Aaron Coleman is a 19-year-old dishwasher from Kansas City, KS, which lies across the Missouri River from its bigger brother, Kansas City, MO. While KCK is lower-income, and about 50% white and 50% black/Hispanic, the district Coleman would represent is majority white and middle income. But all of the city shares one commonality: it’s solidly Democratic. Any Democrat from KCK who runs for the KS legislature is usually a shoo-in.

But Coleman is carrying the kind of baggage that should be toxic to a budding political career. Because when he was in middle school, Coleman obtained a nude picture of a girl, and then threatened to forward it if she didn’t send more of the same. She didn’t comply, so he followed through with his blackmail threat.

The victim reported:

“And when I didn’t send him more, he sent it to everyone I knew. I don’t know how he got the picture. All I know is he’s an awful person and he should not be allowed to run for anything.”

In sixth grade, he also cyberbullied another girl, calling her a “whale,” complete with expletives.

“F—- you you f——- ratchet fat s—-. F—- off whale. Go on a diet and get some braces.”

The young woman, now 18, said his persistent verbal abuse almost led her to suicide.

“I was just in disbelief that another man that doesn’t respect women is in power, calling me fat, telling me to kill myself, like I’m never going to find anyone, like I’m worthless, just downgrading me every day.”

Coleman did issue a mea culpa, but excused these stunts as “the actions of a sick and troubled 14-yo boy.” As for the girl who nearly committed suicide, Coleman implied that she should just get over it.

“I’ve moved on. They call the past the past for a reason, because that’s where you are supposed to leave things.”

But Aaron Coleman hasn’t moved on from his own childhood problems. In fact, he claims to be a victim himself of an elementary school that “locked him in a closet” in “solitary confinement” for three years. As a result, he insists he’s “damaged neurologically.” “I’m lucky to be alive, and I don’t want any child to suffer as I did,” he states. He also claims he received a PTSD diagnosis when he was 15.

However, the superintendent for Coleman’s KS school district rejects these claims. Coleman’s school “does not put kids in closets,” he said.

Yet Aaron Coleman has made outrageous statements recently, too. Last month he hoped a former GOP KS House rep who criticized mask usage would die of COVID, writing in a Facebook post:

“John, I’m going to laugh and giggle when you get COVID and die. At least we can say you died doing what you love. Ask your buddy Herman Cain how it worked out for him.”

Accompanying that Facebook post was a picture of Jesus in a sexually suggestive pose with the text “Don’t wear a mask so we can be together forever.”

He apologized for that, too — probably because he got caught.

But there’s more about “Aaron Coleman for KS” than these egregious stunts. His platform is pure radical leftist.

He supports single-payer health care, legal marijuana, defunding of police, the Green New Deal, and abortion up until birth. He also wants free college, too. Coleman also received the endorsement of Social Democrats USA.

Coleman’s Facebook campaign page shows his support for Black Lives Matter, Bernie Sanders, and LGBTQ causes. He also wants to raise the minimum wage and thinks that if you want schools to reopen, you’re also someone who excuses school shootings. Or something like that.

The KS Democratic Party — because it’s Kansas and not, say, Portland — looks at Aaron Coleman with horror. The Kansas City Star editorial board wants Coleman to withdraw from the race. KS Gov. Laura Kelly, a Democrat, says he’s “not fit to serve in the Legislature.” And Jacques Barber, Wyandotte County Democratic Chair, said the party should accept him but “try to counsel him and give him as much guidance as we can.” Good luck with that.

Finally, current Rep. Stan Frownfelter, whom Coleman defeated in the August 4 Democratic primary, is staging a Hail Mary write-in campaign to keep Coleman away from Topeka.

Frownfelter said in an interview:

“The voters in our community didn’t have a full understanding of my opponent, or the kind of person he really is.”

The radical Left doesn’t confine itself just to the West Coast anymore. It’s not just violent anarchists in Portland or kooks on the Seattle city council. They’re now running for office in the Heartland. So while Republicans are dealing with QAnon candidates, Dems need to own their party’s problem children, too. Their nod-and-wink attitude towards socialism and disruption have brought this on. But most importantly, however, voters really need to pay attention to just who is running to represent them.

Toto, I don’t think this is Kansas anymore.

Update: Aaaand. . . he’s out! Aaron Coleman withdrew from the race on Sunday, claiming he wants to “focus on taking care of my family & surviving the COVID Great Depression,” since he says his father is in the hospital. But in Kansas it’s not so easy to remove your name from a ballot — the nominee or the nominee’s family must be experiencing severe medical problems, or has moved from the state, or died. Now Coleman has to file a petition with the secretary of state by September 1. The KS Secretary of State is Scott Schwab, a conservative pro-life Republican, so life could get even more interesting for Aaron Coleman.

Update Numero Dos: He’s baaaack! Coleman now says he’ll remain on the ballot, as of August 25. My guess is that he found out he can’t get off the ballot, due to Kansas’s stringent ballot rules. But he says he wants to fight “corporatists.” Power to the people, or something.

“My withdrawal would immediately return to power the same corporatist, out-of-touch 7-term incumbent that voters just rejected.”

Good luck, KS Democrats. You own this putz. Enjoy.

  • News flash: QAnon is not Antifa.

    Now, there are some pretty wacky theories wandering around that community (although, if you compare those pushed by NYT, WaPo, CNN, NPR… not all that far out there).

    On the particular “conspiracy theory” cited by the linked Forbes article – they could very well be wrong that the Trump Administration is digging into the sex slave trafficking business. But one can hope that they are right, yes? (If it were actually happening, I know a very large number of Arizona Democrats – and at least two Republicans, damn it – that would be facing extremely long jail sentences.)

  • Penrod says:

    By today’s standards the guy is a middle of the road Democrat.

    By their standards he has a few mild personal quirks but nothing which would even come close to disqualifying him. Like, say, questioning abortion on demand after the 8 1/2 month or suggesting that perhaps illegal aliens shouldn’t be allowed to vote in federal elections.

  • Wayne says:

    Can the Kansas legislature refuse to seat the Commie asshoe?

  • 370H55V says:

    But the fact remains that he still won the primary. This is today’s Dem party, so let’s not delude ourselves that this is still a “center-right” nation. If we are to prevail, it will have to be by means other than electoral.

    • GWB says:

      If we are to truly prevail, it will have to be by educating , enlightening, and turning the hearts of our countrymen so the electoral means will have an effect.

  • Kansan says:

    Kansas City has never been like the rest of Kansas. Ed Asner is from KCK.

  • David Longfellow says:

    This guy has a great future in the Democratic party. He is a perfect example of their value system.

  • Ima Idgit says:

    Yep, you’re right, both parties have their unhinged fringe members. At least the Kansas Democratic Party has denounced this guy and hopefully the write-in candidate will win. Has Trump denounced QAnon? As far as I know he hasn’t. Do you think it’s because he knows that QAnon supporters are also likely to be his supporters? I bet this if the reason he doesn’t’ denounce QAnon and why so many Republicans in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are silent about QAnon.

  • […] Kansas is getting a real winner of a socialist candidate to their statehouse. […]

  • GWB says:

    I don’t know how he got the picture.
    Actually, I’m betting you know who you sent that particular one to. Unless you’ve sent it so many times you just don’t recall. No, no one should be forwarding on pictures of naked people, especially to hurt them. But kids need to stop this naked selfie stuff if they ever want to live in a civilized world.

    They call the past the past for a reason, because that’s where you are supposed to leave things.
    Wow, that’s some sterling philosophy right there. It doesn’t rhyme, there’s no etymology to support it, and it’s really just word salad. Another fine product of our amazing public school system!

    he insists he’s “damaged neurologically.”
    Well, that would explain the socialism….

    He apologized for that, too
    Starting to sound like he’s not got a lot of filter on his brain, which hasn’t progressed past puberty. He knows he should refrain, but he just can’t stop being a putz.

    He wants …
    More support for my “he didn’t grow up” thesis. He sounds like a toddler, “Gimme! Mine! Mine! Mine! That’s not faaaair!”

    thinks that
    I’m beginning to believe you’re being unfair in using that word of his positions.

    “The voters in our community didn’t have a full understanding of my opponent, or the kind of person he really is.”
    Well, too f-ing bad. It’s your (Democrat) efforts that have made them that way.
    Also, a lot of states don’t allow a write-in for someone who lost a primary. Is KS one of those? (I would never presume that an elected official would actually know such a thing.)

    voters really need to pay attention to just who is running to represent them
    And hold them strictly, personally accountable for their villainy.

    Do any–any!–Kansas Republicans know how to do bare-knuckle, mudslinging, shoot-the-targets-(all 16 of them!)-that-you’re-given politics?

    After Trump’s presidency, he should be convinced to do a version of The Apprentice for GOP fledgelings.

  • Bandit says:

    Seems like a run of the mill Dem candidate to me
