CORY BOOKER AND LOUIS FARRAKHAN

Recently, at a faith breakfast doubling as a campaign event, 2020 democrat presidential candidate Cory Booker, better known as Spartacus, announced that he would be willing to meet with infamous anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, acknowledging that he was “very familiar with Louis Farrakhan and his beliefs and his values.” Booker’s comments, while alarming, serve as a steady reminder that the American Democratic Party does not regard anti-Semitism as a form of ethnic hatred, but as a mere difference of opinion. Indeed, Booker’s speech at the breakfast in Columbia, South Carolina provides a roadmap for the type of Farrakhan whitewashing we might come to expect from 2020 Democrats attempting to justify their continued correspondence with Farrakhan.

“I live in Newark so we have famous Mosque 25, we have Nation of Islam there,” Booker stared at the breakfast. “As mayor I met lots of folks talking to Farrakhan. I have heard Minister Farrakhan’s speeches for a lot of my life, so I don’t feel like I need to do that, but I’m not one of these people that says I wouldn’t sit down with anybody to hear what they have to say. But I live on a neighborhood where I’m getting guys on the streets offering and selling his works. I am very familiar with Minister Louis Farrakhan and his beliefs and his values.”

Booker’s blasé discussion of Farrakhan reminds American voters that Democrats are wholly unserious about tackling anti-Semitism within their own ranks. Booker had been responding to an audience member who had specifically asked whether Booker would reject speaking with Farrakhan on the basics of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. Instead of using his response as an opportunity to offer a full-throated condemnation of Nation of Islam leader, Booker took the opportunity to normalize the rabid anti-Semite, referring to Farrakhan’s “beliefs and his values” as if they were a matter of philosophical debate.

Booker’s comments are just one more indication that the Democratic Party has no intention of confronting the creeping anti-Semitism that has infected its ranks. The reason Booker felt comfortable normalizing Farrakhan is the same reason Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez felt comfortable praising contact with anti-Semite enabler Jeremy Corbyn; the same reason the Democrats have done nothing to remove Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite her anti-Semitic comments; the same reason the Women’s March has remained a quasi-arm of the Democrat Party, despite its ties to Farrakhan; and the same reason the left-wing boycott divestment sanctions movement has flourished on college campuses, despite alleged ties to anti-Semitic terrorist organizations.

The reasons lies in the fact that Democrats regard anti-Semitism as a socially acceptable difference of opinion, as in, “You like Jews, and I don’t.” To Democrats, it isn’t a centuries-old form of ethnic hatred, but an unconventional yet viable political stance. Commentary like Booker’s, sadly, solidifies this interpretation.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

The mayors of all the sanctuary cities say they will not allow ICE to enforce the federal law in their cities and blame President Trump for removing the individuals who are here illegally. The Constitution of the United States, in Article II, Section 1, Clause 8, states: Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation – “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States , and will to the best of my Ability, preserve , protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” In Article II, Section 2, the Constitution states “he shall take Care that all Laws be faithfully executed.” President Trump is upholding the Constitution as he has sworn to do, however the American hating moron Democrats only believe in upholding the Constitution when it is to their benefit.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
