Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) released a new criminal justice bill today that did not garner much enthusiasm, but while at his press conference announcing the legislation, he did run from a question regarding the anti-Semitic remarks made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in recent weeks.
“So regarding the controversy surrounding Congresswoman Omar,” the reporter said. Booker immediately cut her off sensing that he might have to make a controversial position.
“So can we do off… the off-topic questions when we finish,” Booker said stammering. “I will happily sit and stand and talk with you about that but is there anything about this piece of legislation that is out there?”
Booker then looked to the small room and found no questions regarding his legislation.
“I can’t see the people in the back,” Booker said. “Such a big room. No questions on that. Well, I’m going to end this press conference.”
The embarrassing exchange can be seen here:
Omar has emerged as a serious problem for Democrats as she continues to make remarks offensive to Jews. Whenever Democratic leadership tries to reign her in for her antics, the radicalized ‘Never Trump’ liberal grassroots rallies in her favor. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is leading the pro-Omar brigade with whataboutisms and other lame excuses on behalf of the Somali-born legislator.
“It’s not my position to tell people how to feel, or that their hurt is invalid,” she wrote on Twitter. “But incidents like these do beg the question: where are the resolutions against homophobic statements? For anti-blackness? For xenophobia? For a member saying he’ll ‘send Obama home to Kenya?'”
“If we’re so concerned about implied tropes, why aren’t we concerned about this one?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Where was the concern last week when 26 Dems voted for a GOP amendment to expand ICE powers rooted in the racist + false trope that Latino immigrants are more dangerous than US born citizens?”
Democrats cannot even prepare and pass a simple resolution rebuking anti-Semitism because progressives feel it may stigmatize Rep. Omar and signal a political victory for President Trump. Democratic presidential hopefuls like Booker are walking on eggshells dealing with the Omar question as they attempt to portray themselves as unifying moderates while still satisfying the liberal base of radicalized jackals.
“We gotta tell the truth, but we, all of us, black, white, gay, straight, we’ve got to start extending grace to one another so we can have honest conversations and leave room for growth,” Booker said last month to an Iowa audience.
As Booker talks of the need for a robust conversation, he runs from reporters who ask his opinion on Omar and her frequent incendiary comments about the Jewish people. The liberal embrace of racial grievance politics has worked like a charm for generations, but now poses serious problems heading into 2020 as the extremist elements of the Left are now driving mainstream Democratic politics.
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.
