The arrogance of some politicians will take your breath away.
A few weeks ago, U.S. Senator Cory Booker was playing up to the Hamas/Hezbollah loving Israel-haters – the Antifa wing of the Democrat Party.
Now he’s posturing before the media again. The Newark Star-Ledger even ran a story, apparently with a straight face, with the headline: Booker says 'words matter' following attacks against Democrats and Jewish worshippers.
Booker is quoted telling a group of Young Democrats (in New Hampshire… yep, Spartacus is running for President)… “We need to understand that words matter and that we all need to be mindful of what we're saying."
Then Booker went full on racist, telling the crowd that white Americans are to blame. Jonathan Salant (pronounced S’lant) of the Star-Ledger wrote: “Booker, D-N.J., said the majority of terrorist attacks since 9/11 have come from white supremacist and other right-wing groups.”
Damned white Americans!
Every day, Cory Booker sounds more and more like one of those American-hating clerics who haunts the Middle East. “It is not us,” they claim, “America is the world’s greatest terrorist!!!”
Booker is trying to use figures from a disgraced Leftist source that claims 79 people have died as a result of “right-wing” extremism since September 11, 2001. Note that Booker starts his count from the day after Islamist terrorism killed 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000 others. But okay, let’s go with Spartacus’ play at skewing the numbers – and we won’t count every act of Islamist terror, just some of the more notable ones:
The was the Bali bombing in 2002 that resulted in 202 deaths and 240 injuries. The 2004 Madrid train bombing (192 dead, 2050 injured). That same year, the Beslan murders of school children (385 dead, 783 injured). In 2005, there were three separate bombing incidents (208 killed, more than 500 injured). In 2006, we had the Mumbai train bombings (209 killed, more than 700 injured). In 2008, 212 were killed in Islamist bombings with more than 200 injured). In 2010, bombings killed 178 people and injured nearly 400. The Christmas Day bombings in 2011 killed 41 and injured 57. In 2012, Islamic terrorism claimed 32 killed and 180 injured.
The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing killed 3 and injured 183. The Westgate Shopping Mall massacre killed 67 and wounded 175. The Borno Massacre in 2014 killed over 200. For the rest of that year – 1,567 were killed by Islamic terrorism. 2,816 were killed in 2015 (and, as in years past, thousands were injured). Islamists killed 1,453 in 2016 (and injured thousands). For 2017, 501 were killed – and so far this year – 854 have been murdered by Islamic terrorists.
So based on this… Spartacus can’t count!
And then there’s Booker’s political ally – Democrat Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver – one of only three legislators to oppose a resolution that prohibited investment of state pension and annuity funds in anti-Jewish companies that boycott Israel or Israel businesses. That’s right, Ms. Oliver – Phil Murphy’s running mate and Cory Booker’s political ally – the Lt. Governor of New Jersey, sided with those who hate the Jewish state.
The Roll Call vote is below. Yes, words do matter Cory… and so do actions.
S1923 Aa (1R) Prohibits investment of pension and annuity funds by State in companies that boycott Israel or Israeli businesses.
