‘Modern-Day Lynching:’ Booker and Kamala Didn’t Wait for the Facts in the Jussie Smollett Case

Don’t hold your breath for apologies.

Published

Two 2020 presidential candidates, Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) jumped at the opportunity to accuse ordinary Americans of harboring hatred for minorities in the wake of the attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker said of the attack. “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.”

Harris had a similar message.

“This was an attempted modern day lynching,” she claimed. “No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.”

As it turns out, the “crime” was neither a lynching attempt, nor motivated by race or sexuality. In fact, it was totally made up. Chicago police now believe that Smollett orchestrated the “attack” with two men, his “attackers.” Both are reportedly Nigerian nationals and extras on “Empire.”

Smollett’s story – that bigots yelling “this is MAGA country” beat him, wrapped a rope around his neck, and soaked him in bleach – conformed to the worldview of Harris and Booker perfectly. They believe that America is a fundamentally bad country filled with intolerant racists, and that only the progressive agenda can save America from the backwards people in “flyover country” who would commit a heinous crime like the one Smollett made up.

So they pounced (in the parlance of our times) without waiting for the facts to come to light, despicably seizing on the opportunity to race-bait, and to prove that their worldview is the correct one. They were wrong. Again.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gets a dishonorable mention, too.

“The racist, homophobic attack on is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all,” she Tweeted.

To be sure, these people do not care about Smollett, or even racism and homophobia. They care about virtue signaling to their idiotic progressive base to score cheap political points.

Fortunately for the Speaker, justice will be served. And Smollett will be on the losing end.

WEAK: Bernie Sanders Allows Nevada Rally to be Overrun by Deranged Anti-Dairy Activists

And this guy wants to be President?

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the presumptive front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, demonstrated his weakness in allowing his rally on Sunday in Carson City, Nevada to be overrun by deranged anti-dairy activists.

“Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I am here to ask you to stop propping up the dairy industry, and stop propping up the dairy industry,” an activist said after she wrestled the mic away from the frail 78-year-old socialist with a bad ticker.

The clip can be seen here:

After the microphone was cut off and security attempted to remove the activist from stage, three other anti-dairy activists showed up topless to protest Sanders’ supposed pro-agriculture beliefs as well.

The group behind this protest calls themselves Direct Action Everywhere, and they have identified the protester who grabbed the microphone from Sanders as Priya Sawhney, who lists herself as the co-founder of the organization.

“I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them. Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires,” Sawhney said in a statement included in a press release from the organization. “People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement.”

This is not the first time that Sanders has allowed angry, unruly activists to take over his rallies. He did so in 2015 when he allowed Black Lives Matter to rush the stage and actually handed the microphone over to those belligerent racial-grievance mongers.

The Hill reported on Sanders’ weakness during his first presidential campaign:

Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking.

Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.

After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.

One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.”

Johnson spoke, among other things, about police violence in Seattle, mentioning a federal investigation into the city’s law enforcement that resulted in the appointment of a monitor to make sure Seattle police were complying with the terms set forth by the Justice Department.

“Bernie says that he’s all about the people and about grassroots. The biggest grassroots movement in this country right now is Black Lives Matter,” she added.

If Sanders somehow becomes President, he will likely be kicked around by world leaders in the same manner that he is kicked around by left-wing activists.
