Cory Booker Tries To Backpedal His Violent Rhetoric And Fails [VIDEO]

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) just can’t help himself. First he invokes the 23rd Psalm in an unhinged attempt to paint SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh as “evil” incarnate. Then, hours after that, Cory Booker called for Americans to “get up in the face” of politicians. He moved quickly from unhinged to calls for violence, didn’t he?

What in the world does he expect will happen? Does he not realize that Maxine Waters already tried that gambit and got called out for it? Heck, even some Democrats, including Botox Nancy, told her to dial it down! Did Booker say anything then? Not that anyone can tell.

Evidently, what Booker learned from Maxine’s call to violence is that we need more, not less, so that finally those pesky Republicans and conservatives will toe the Democrat Left line. The problem is, far too many people are taking things way too literally these days and throwing both common sense and right/wrong out the window.

We are seeing Antifa crap encouraged. People are screaming and shouting down speakers they disagree with and causing professors such as Evergreen State’s Brett Weinstein to be fired because they DARE go against the current unhinged feelings-based narrative.

We’ve also seen what the unhinged “if you aren’t with us, you are against us and must be stopped at all costs” rhetoric did when a demented Bernie Sanders supporter tried to kill Congressman Steve Scalise last year. So that means that people who should know better should stop with the advocation of violent rhetoric, right? WRONG.

No, that’s definitely NOT good. Furthermore, if Booker advocates this for Congresspeople, then that means it’s ok if someone gets in his face? Yeah, I didn’t think so. What’s good for the goose is NOT good for the gander.

Thus Booker is doing his very best to backtrack his call for physical confrontation. 

But on Thursday, Booker seemed to backtrack on his intense rhetoric, instead urging his supporters to show love to their political opponents and slamming the current “toxic” political culture.

“It is so easy to love people who agree with you, but the real test comes, to love someone who you disagree with. And our political culture right now has become so toxic,” Booker said during a Thursday interview with On Being.

“I really hope that we are going to see more vulnerability in our politics, that we’re going to see more people willing to talk about their own evolution. I just do hope that this dialogue does come. I don’t know,” he explained.

“We’re in such a new political space, where you’re seeing the fracturing of the news media, snippets and tweets and soundbites and memes.”

Oh. Sooooo…it’s ok for you to go on an unhinged rant invoking the 23rd Psalm in an effort to paint a person as evil. It’s also ok for you to give tacit approval to Maxine’s call to violence and encourage your supporters to get up in people’s faces. By doing so, they will be showing love. Uh huhhhhh…RIGHT.

That’s not quite a walk back of your remarks there, Cory. Instead, it’s a tap dance around the issue. If you REALLY wanted to walk back your rhetoric, a simple, yet pointed, statement such as this would do the trick:

“I spoke out of turn and in haste. My remarks were not appropriate in any way, shape, or form. I apologize.”

But since it’s Cory, he won’t issue anything like that and instead will continue to tap dance, grandstand, and likely come up with another unhinged rant regarding whatever the latest Democrat topic du jour.

Booker’s rhetoric is just as dangerous as Maxine Waters’ was. There is no excuse for using phrasing that tacitly implies physical confrontation is acceptable on any level.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) is right. Cory Booker needs to “get a grip;” screeching rants and calls for violence are not a good look for anyone, let alone someone who supposedly wants to be president.

    The examples of this man and the woman, Maxine, remind me of King Henry II of England who, supposedly, proclaimed in frustration ‘Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?’ and several knights returned to England and to Canterbury Cathedral and killed Thomas a Becket.

    Part of being a politician is surely being politic, i.e. seeming sensible and judicious in the circumstances? However so many of the political socialist left are extremely partisan and rash in their statements and it should come as no surprise to them when their more rabid or immature admirers and supporters cross the line and commit violence in response to the injudicious rhetoric uttered in interview and disseminated via the various [and often anti-] social media. Politicians of all persuasions are meant to lead for all by example but certain fools behave like spoiled bullies in the school playground.

      It doesn’t… it’s not a surprise, nor is it unintended..They make such statements with the EXACT intent you attributed above to Henry II…They are following “rules for radicals” to the letter, this is just “politics by other means”… The problem for them is, or will be, that unlike the socialist / communist countries they so idolize, the opposition in this country will not just roll over and submit when the leftist brownshirts start knocking on doors.They will be met with the true American spirit, that which made the revolution possible, that which imbued the spirit of the average soldier during the Civil War, regardless of which side they fought for. In all those cases, the rank and file (I’ll not get into the weeds about the politics and motivations of the leaders, I’m only discussing the common soldiers), they fought for what they believed in, their state, and their country…THAT is what these leftist fools will be met with should they ever decide to truly go down that path. I hope that’s never the case, but I and mine intend to be fully prepared should it happen. I’d suggest all who hold the ideals of this Country dear do the same..

    The attempt to destroy all that is good in Western Society is a world-wide phenomenon. Recently I rang a man who is in his 70s about a rifle he had advertised. He was ex-military and we had a discussion about the state of society and politics here in Australia and the extremism of the Left whose members clearly hate the society that grants them their liberty and financial opportunity. His last words to me were ”Don’t give up your guns!”
