New Jersey’s Jews launched Cory Booker’s political career. Booker used his friendship with the prominent Rabbi Shmuley Boteach to connect to New Jersey’s large and politically influential Jewish community.
Booker was embraced by New Jersey’s Jews, who would go on to provide him with immeasurable support when running for the U.S Senate. Booker promised his Jewish supporters that he would always support Israel and America’s Jews. Booker lied. Like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris, Cory Booker used and deceived his Jewish constituents.
When Cory Booker decided that he would launch a presidential run, he realized that he could not win his party’s nomination unless he developed a more anti-Israel tone. As a result, Booker would go on to support the Iran Nuclear Deal, and vote against the Taylor Force Act, and condemn President Trump for moving the U.S embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Like his fellow Democrat Party Presidential nominees, Booker also refused to vote in favor of anti-BDS legislation.
During Wednesday’s “She the People” event in Houston, Booker continued his betrayal of New Jersey’s Jews when he defended Rep. Ilhan Omar, despite her anti-Semitic statements and open disdain for Israel. Booker actually referred to President Trump’s rightful criticism of Omar as “reprehensible” and “trafficking in Islamophobia.”
Booker has received a fortune worth of campaign contributions from New Jersey’s Jewish community over the years. His defense of the anti-Semitic Omar is how he has chosen to thank them. #JEXODUS.
WATCH: Cory Booker Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitism, Calls Criticism Of Her ‘Reprehensible’,
The Daily Caller, Ryan Saavedra, April 24th, 2019:
Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) anti-Semitism on Wednesday during a “She the People” event in Houston, Texas.
“My question is about Ilhan Omar. She was recently critical of the outside influence of AIPAC in determining U.S. foreign policy, including funding of Israel,” a member of the audience said. “Subsequently, she has received condemnation from the President and members of her own party, as well as death threats. What will you do as president to protect the right of courageous women of color to criticize U.S. policy even when directed at allies?”
“Thank you for your question. The criticisms of Congresswoman Omar, what Donald Trump has been saying about her is reprehensible, it is trafficking in Islamophobia, and it should be condemned by everyone,” Booker responded. “This kind of selective condemnation should be a chorus of people condemning it.”
