A 2020 presidential candidate deflected a question about “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s faked hate crime Sunday, instead claiming that hate crimes by the political right are on the rise.
“Well, the information’s still coming out. I’m going to wait until all the information comes out from on the record sources,” said Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). “We know in America that that bigoted and biased attacks are on the rise, in a serious way.”
Booker failed to “wait for the information” to come out when he claimed the faked hate crime was a “modern-day lynching” shortly after the story broke.
“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker said shortly after the event. “To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
Sunday, he doubled down, returning to the talking point that the political right is responsible for violence in America, despite the fact the Chicago Police have confirmed that Smollett is not a victim in this case.
“We actually know that in this country, since 9/11, the majority of terrorist attacks on our soil have been right wing terrorist attacks, the majority of them white supremacist attacks,” he said. “From the horrific shootings in Pittsburgh or in South Carolina church, we’re seeing these attacks on people because they’re different. We all need to come together to condemn those attacks, and the hatred and the bigotry that sources them.”
But everyone has condemned the mass shootings in both Pittsburgh and South Carolina, and it is inaccurate to associate those attacks with the political right. Nobody in right wing politics advocates for killing minorities. Booker knows that.
Still, he disgustingly scapegoated Republicans for the twisted actions of Smollett.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
