Cory “Spartacus” Booker Wants To Bring Civic Grace Back To Politics

The current crop of 2020 Presidential candidates have stepped on so many rakes that I’ve lost count. Has anyone cornered the market on popcorn? Somebody needs to, especially after Cory “Spartacus” Booker’s comments yesterday. You see, he’s declared that he is just the one to bring civic grace back to politics.

Yes folks, he’s serious!

I know, I should’ve given a keyboard warning beforehand. Sorry. Not. Sorry.

In case you didn’t believe what you just heard – or decided to not watch the video, here is the direct quote.

President Trump said Sunday on “Face the Nation” that Booker has “no chance” against him in 2020. Booker said he is used to being “underestimated” and his political career is something “every American knows about.”

“I think every American knows about being underestimated, being demeaned or just put down, it’s something I faced all my political career in Newark going up against the machine. Look, the history of our country is a history of people underestimating this nation and doing impossible things, so we don’t need a president that’s going to put down people or divide people. This is really one of those times in American history I think we need a revival of civic grace and bringing people together,” said Booker.

Oh. My. Word. Where to begin?

Hey Spartacus? Where were your calls for civility when Maxine Waters told everyone to get into people’s faces? Where were your calls for civility when Eric Holder said to kick people? Yeah, you were radio silent then.

Let’s look at what you said during your campaign announcement.

“We are better when we help each other,” he said in the official campaign kickoff. “I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.” [Emphasis Added]

You know what? I’d believe your sincerity if it weren’t for your conduct last fall. Remember that?

Remember when you told us that anyone who supports Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination would be ‘complicit in the evil?’

Please explain to us, using small words, how a statement like that is the definition of civic grace?

Remember how you were oh so certain that Brett Kavanaugh was wrong for the Supreme Court that you flouted committee rules and released confidential Kavanaugh emails. Is that your definition of civic grace? That “Spartacus” moment was most certainly the epitome of civic grace. Right?

And by all means, let’s not forget your civic gracefulness regarding Brett Kavanaugh back in July. Is ranting about how evil Brett Kavanaugh supposedly is now defined as civic grace?

Your support of the unfounded accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. Is that civic grace?

You’ve remained silent about Ralph Northam’s heinous commentary and support of infanticide, but have called for his resignation over the blackface/kkk photo. One is more important than the other it seems. Is that what you call civic grace?

You know what “Spartacus?” I’m pretty sure civic grace doesn’t mean what you think it means.

But hey! You want to be President so sure, let’s pander to the masses and call for civic grace. Meanwhile folks, please ignore the elephant of hypocrisy standing right behind him.
