Elder Patriot – The Democrats have morphed into the party of illegal immigrants and racial-baiting politics. Proof of this comes from the ascension of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker who is being promoted as a potential 2020 challenger to President Trump.
Evidence that Booker’s party has chosen this direction comes from a recent memo, co-authored by former Hillary Clinton’s campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri, that circulated to the Center For American Progress Action Fund and then sent to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers:”
“If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond. In short, the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects.”
So publicly Booker is intent on defending DACA recipients because unfettered immigration – legal or not – is central to his party’s electoral success.
Booker polished his “leadership” bona fides during a rant he directed towards Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen this past week:
Nazis? Hitler? Does he really want to be calling the parents of Kate Steinle names like this? Really? This went on a lot longer than the abridged video depicts with the only basis for his rant being Trump’s alleged use of a word that the president and others in the room say was never uttered.
Only Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) claims to have heard it. That didn’t stop Durbin from bringing it to the public in order to tank the DACA negotiations once he realized that President Trump wasn’t going to be snookered into amnesty the way Ronald Reagan was.
Booker then took to race pimping during an interview aimed at keeping voters in the black community in line:
Think about this for just a minute. Booker is attempting to conflate Trump’s alleged use of the term shithole as proof that somehow Trump, and anyone who defends him, is a racist.
Really, how about the fact that it has been the policies of your party that has created urban plantations that really are shitholes in every sense of the word?
And, the fact that Booker is relying on Dick Durbin as his sole source must be weighed against Durbin’s credibility. He has a history of lying about what was said in private White House meetings.
The fact is privately Booker doesn’t care about the so-called dreamers just as he doesn’t care about lower earning blacks and Hispanics that he claims to represent.
After all, it’s an inescapable truth that DACA recipients are taking up jobs and educational opportunities that would’ve gone to someone else. Still, that only covers the good DACA recipients who Booker insists on calling “Dreamers.”
It was also made clear (because the president had televised the meeting live) that President Trump had offered DACA amnesty in exchange for increased border security but the Dems turned that down. If protecting the DACA dreamers were really front and center Booker and other Dems would’ve demanded his party take that deal.
The reason that Booker didn’t is made clear in Jennifer Palmieri’s memo. Democrats are out of bullets – at least as far as convincing the majority of Americans who have lived under their policies are concerned – and they will no longer be relevant without an ignorant underclass that believes the government can give them access to the American dream. Those are primarily indigent, ignorant immigrants.
The only dreams Booker cares about are those that accompany his personal political aspirations not the dreams of the US citizens who have been displaced by illegal aliens. The ones who are committing crimes against his other constituents? Well he also defends them by diminishing the reach of immigration officials who are dispatched to apprehend them.
Don’t trust me; trust the crime statistics during Booker’s 2 terms as mayor of one of those cities, Newark, NJ.
During a period where crime was dropping nationwide Booker’s policies led to a consistently less safe city. Booker was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2013. Crime in Newark immediately dropped the year after he left office..
Who were the people who suffered under Booker’s “compassionate” policing strategies following his decision to declare his city a sanctuary for illegal aliens in 2007? Check out the racial demographics of Newark:
By the time Booker was preparing to leave office his constituents were living in a dangerous shithole:
Regardless, Democrats decided as a party to take America down this road. They just never anticipated that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be there to lead America’s further descent.
