Booker: Trump ‘Is Worse Than a Racist’

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Sen. Cory Booker said President Trump was “worse than a racist” and “very similar” to 1960s segregationist George Wallace.

“The reality is, this is a guy who is worse than a racist,” Booker said. “He’s actually using racist tropes and racial language for political gains,  trying to use this as a weapon to divide our nation against itself. This is somebody who is very similar to George Wallace, to racists who use the exact same language… We have a demagogue, fear-mongering person who is trying to use race to divide,” he added.

In fact, Booker’s Democrat Party has been using race to divide America for many decades; Trump has only exposed how deep the divide is after the tenure of predecessor Barack Obama, who promised to unite all Americans but only exacerbated racial tensions.

Rep. Senators Introduce Resolution to Label Antifa ‘Domestic Terrorists’

Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy introduced a resolution Thursday to label the left-wing radicals of Antifa a “domestic terrorist organization.”

“Whereas members of Antifa, because they believe that free speech is equivalent to violence, have used threats of violence in the pursuit of suppressing opposing political ideologies,” the resolution begins. Cruz wrote on Twitter that the group is a “terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence.”

“Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege,” Cassidy wrote in a press release. “Bullies get their way until someone says no. Elected officials must have courage, not cowardice, to prevent terror.”

O’Rourke Jokes About New Slogan: ‘Don’t Be a F*ckstick’

In a podcast interview with Jemele Hill Thursday, 2020 White House hopeful Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke joked that ‘Don’t Be a F*ckstick’ could be his new campaign slogan.

O’Rourke noted that his father swore often and creatively, frequently using “f*ckstick.” Hill joked, “I feel like that could be a campaign slogan: ‘Don’t Be a F*ckstick, vote for Beto.'”

“Yeah, yeah,” O’Rourke replied, admitting he needs to rein in his foul language. “I really have to work on not cursing as much. I try to be as honest as I can and sometimes when I go into that honest place, there’s a four-letter word there connected to what I want to say.”

Considering his plunging numbers in the polls, O’Rourke is in need of an entirely new campaign, not just a slogan.

Steyer: ‘Criminal’ Trump ‘Dangerous for American People’

Presidential contender and billionaire activist Tom Steyer accused President Trump on Wednesday of being a “criminal” using “racism to divide Americans,” and claimed he is becoming more “dangerous.”

“He’s a criminal, he’s a threat to the Constitution. And he’s dangerous for the American people,” Steyer said, adding that Trump is “the most corrupt president in American history.”

Asked about the “send her back” chants directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar during a recent Trump rally, Steyer replied that there is “nothing lower in the world than going after” people based on their “race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and religion… and [Trump] does all of the above.” He stated that Trump uses racism to “distract attention from his failed economic policies” and “the failure of his whole presidency,” a ludicrous accusation considering the country’s booming economy and Trump’s actual record with minorities.

Warren Apologizes Again For Native American Ancestry Claims

During a “Conversation with the Candidate” forum in New Hampshire Thursday, 2020 White House hopeful Elizabeth Warren apologized for controversial past claims of Native American ancestry and admitted the obvious: that she is “not a person of color” and “not a citizen of a tribe.”

A mother of black twins at the event asked the Massachusetts senator how she can “overcome the bridge with voters” who question her cynical appropriation of Native American heritage.

“Like most people, my brothers and I learned about who we are from our mom and our dad. My family’s very important to me, and based on that, sometimes, decades ago, I identified that way,” she said. “Even so, I shouldn’t have done it. I am not a person of color. I am not a citizen of a tribe, and I’ve apologized for any confusion over tribal sovereignty, tribal citizenship and any harm caused by that,” she added.

Omar Compares Israel to Nazi Germany in Pro-BDS Resolution

Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives Tuesday which supports the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement — and compares Israel to apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany.

Omar’s resolution is an alternative to a bipartisan, non-binding pro-Israel resolution, H. Res. 246, which opposes the BDS movement, noting that it targets Jews and stokes hatred against Israel. Omar’s resolution, H. Res. 496, is co-sponsored by Reps. John Lewis and Rashida Tlaib. Both Omar and Tlaib have repeatedly made anti-Semitic statements which they refuse to retract or apologize for.

The resolution declares that Americans have the right to engage in boycotts against Israel, lumping the tiny Middle East democracy in with past evil regimes in apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany.
