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.

Georgia Congressional Candidate Marjorie Greene Threatens Primary Opponent with Lawsuit for ‘Defamatory’ E-Verify Claims
Greene is fighting back against dirty politics.
Georgia Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene has sent a cease-and-desist letter to her Republican primary opponent John Cowan for misrepresenting her record on immigration in a campaign ad.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 8, 2020
GREENE DEMANDS COWAN RETRACT DEFAMATORY AD
My attorney, @LLinWood, sent the following letter today to my opponent, John Cowan, in response to his defamatory television commercial that started airing today.#gapol #ga14 #sass pic.twitter.com/PhMaFW8xzR

“The actionable statements were published by you and your political corporation,” Greene’s attorney L. Lin Wood wrote in a letter to Cowan and his Congressional campaign. “The actionable statements were negligently published and were published with actual malice, that is, with actual knowledge of falsity or with a reckless disregard for truth or falsity.”
Wood is referencing Cowan’s campaign ad alleging that her company did not use E-Verify, a federal program designed to keep illegal immigrants from obtaining employment.
However, Wood provided documented proof that her company did in fact use E-Verify to make sure illegals were not given jobs over American workers.
As you can see from the screenshot below, Taylor Construction clearly uses E-Verify
“Rather than confine yourself to a robust debate on issues for the benefit of the voters, you crossed the legal line and wrongfully published false accusations against Ms. Greene and Taylor Commercial, Inc. The false accusations made by you on behalf of your campaign to discredit your political opponent unlawfully exceed the permissible parameters of political speech and makes you, and your campaign, liable for damages for defamation,” Wood asserted in the letter.
Wood is demanding that Cowan retract the ad and issue a public statement apologizing to Greene for making false accusations, or he will likely file a defamation lawsuit against Cowan and his campaign.
The allegedly defamatory campaign ad released by Cowan can be found here (at least, for now):
Marjorie Greene has a history of being soft on illegal immigration. Records show she refused to use E-Verify at her family business. If we can’t trust Marjorie to hire Americans instead of illegal immigrants, we can’t trust her to stop illegal immigration in Congress! pic.twitter.com/okcOPVjSYg

Big League Politics has reported on Greene for her constitutional campaign ads putting ANTIFA thugs on notice, which have been censored by Facebook.
“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle in the controversial campaign ad. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”
The GOP establishment has already set their sights on Greene, as she they know she will be a lawmaker who they will not be able to control. She refuses to apologize or back down as they levy their attacks.
“I will not let them whip me into submission. And the voters of Northwest Georgia will not let the DC Swamp and the Fake News Media tell them who to vote for,” Greene said in a Facebook post.
Greene is considered the front-runner to beat Cowan during the GOP runoff primary election for Georgia’s 14th Congressional seat. The election is scheduled to take place on Aug. 11.
