"That is so objectionable. That is so offensive. And- and- and this is what I mean about moral vandalism in our country that's going on..."

"... from the highest offices stoking hatred, stoking fears, pitting people against each other," said Cory Booker — quoted in "Presidential candidate Cory Booker calls Trump's 9/11 tweet 'vicious, crass, disgusting'" ("Face the Nation").

Here's the Donald Trump tweet in question:

7/11 never forget

rhhardin said...

The right argument is you have been and still are an idiot religion, let us know when you change.

Kevin said...

Booker calling out Trump is the same as Trump calling out Oman.

But as usual for the Dens it’s never the same and it’s always disgusting when the other guy does it.

#civilitybullshit

Rob said...

That round certainly goes to Trump. T-Bone should have told Booker to STFU.

Channeling George Orwell, former senator Mike Gravel recently tweeted, “if you want a vision of the future under Cory Booker, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever. and every once in a while it stops for an inspirational lecture on how we should never stop dreaming.”

Fen said...

He noted that friends of his had died in those attacks.

"They were unable to comment on being used as props to shield Booker against criticism for disgracing their memory" - Not NYTs

"Some friend." - Not WaPo

Ilhan Omar speaks for her enclave of Somali ex-pats trying to huddle together and maintain their tribal identities in cold, wet, and very foreign infidel Milwaukee.
I would not take her seriously any more than La Pasionaria from the Bronx.

And i would say the same for for Cory Booker. 49 years old, and talks like David Hogg.

I hope we never reach the fantasy land the liberals live in, because it didn't go well in Germany the last time liberals had their way.

Kevin said...

Booker’s nice guy campaign is going to be two years of him despicably pointing out everyone else’s despicableness.

He’s not running for President.

He’s running for Hall Monitor.

Leland said...

I'm failing to see the Democrats' message of unity here.

PB said...

Booker? Is he still running? He dropped out of the news there. His rhetoric and claims are going to have to get really outlandish to get attention

My fav Omar Meme from this week:

The Crusades.

Bypassing Powerline site, because
1) it's pop-up virus hell (they don't care about their viewers)
2) they banned me for criticizing Paul MirenCuck

You know the Civil Respectable Republicans that talk talk talk but will throw us under the bus to virtue signal to the Martha's Vineyard crowd? Sorry, but that's the Powerline crew. Adjust accordingly.

Kevin said...

Attacking one’s argument = Stoking fear and divisiveness.

That’s the argument Dems must win in 2020, because their ideas cannot hold up to actual scrutiny.

iowan2 said...

President Trump gave the weekend 3rd team cable talking heads some playing time with this bit of fodder.
Its plain that 'some people, doing somethings' is an insult to those victims and their loved ones. Including anyone that honors our Nation.

Someone needs to put together all the stuff Democrats have had to take a position to defend. MS13, Islamists terrorists, Illegals comitting crimes.
I mean really, defaming ICE, while honoring illegals. President Trump is a master at pushing them to the logical conclusions of their positions.

Can the Legal Eagles here explain why its against the law to ship these illegals to sanctuary cities. They have self identified as wanting these people.

Mattman26 said...

Oh no, not the moral vandalism!

Wilbur said...

I seem to remember some vandalism - moral and otherwise - that took place on 9/11.

Booker and his ilk would've objected to "Remember Pearl Harbor".

MBunge said...

The people who spent the last two years calling Trump a treasonous Russian agent are now worried about inflaming public passions?

Big Mike said...

"... from the highest offices stoking hatred, stoking fears, pitting people against each other," said Cory Booker

Did he sleep all the way through eight years of Barack Obama stoking hatred, stoking fears, and, as a matter of political strategy, pitting people against each other. Or is it fine when black Democrats do it to honkies?

mockturtle said...

Fen asks [somewhat rhetorically]:You know the Civil Respectable Republicans that talk talk talk but will throw us under the bus to virtue signal to the Martha's Vineyard crowd?

Yep. I'm listening to The Journal Editorial Report right now.

Sebastian said...

Right. Never forget = moral vandalism. Figures.

But when it comes time to vote, will the Althouses forget that Spartacus vandalized truth and justice and the American way? Or will they reward Spartacus' attack on Kavanaugh?

Gahrie said...

The Crusades were defensive wars trying to reclaim once Christian lands conquered by the Muslims.

CWJ said...

Booker and similar are Chatty Cathy dolls. It doesn't matter what Trump actually says. Trump pulls the string and one of a limited number of scripted responses comes out. The response bears no relation to the input.

Rick said...

I'm not at all surprised she's claiming to be the victim. I'm a little surprised the left isn't doing a better job burying it.

Fen said...

I know. But the audience the meme is intended for don't believe that.

Well Rep. Omar is the shame of the Democratic Left for her dimwitted comments.

Just like Pres. Trump is the shame of the Trumpist Republicans for his dimwitted comments:

Nice metaphor for Booker’s campaign.

Good thing Trump didn't say: "Remember the Alamo". The Dems would be leaping off tall buildings.

mockturtle said...

CBS moved up coverage of The Masters due to weather.

After looking at the radar, I'd be surprised if they get to finish the round today. :-(

mccullough said...

Omar will make another stupid comment soon. And another third rate Dem candidate will defend her.

Klobuchar should take a turn defending her fellow Minnesotan. Maybe move up one/half a percentage point to 1.6 percent.

Curious George said...

"Hagar said...
Ilhan Omar speaks for her enclave of Somali ex-pats trying to huddle together and maintain their tribal identities in cold, wet, and very foreign infidel Milwaukee."

That muzzie brother fucking POS is from Minneapolis. And Trump's her captain now.

Humperdink said...

Ever wonder if Omar has any relatives in the Somali Pirate enterprises? You know, the guilt by association thingy for which the R's are repeatedly accused.

Bob Boyd said...

For context:

"Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a 2nd class citizen and I'm tired of it. And every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.
Cair was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and all of us are starting to lose access to our civil liberties.
So you can't just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try and make myself look pleasant. You have to say, this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it, I am going to go talk to them and ask them why. Because that is a right you have."

mccullough said...

CAIR was founded in 1994.

That was before 9/11.

It was after the original World Trade Center bombing in February 1993 when the radicals from the New Jersey Mosque killed 8 people during the bombing.

Maybe those are the some people who did something Omar is talking about.

The Gipper Lives said...

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D.-Somalia: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Omar is not just morally wrong, but as Don Surber caught, she is even factually wrong also.

CAIR was not founded “after 9/11”. It was founded by Hamas groupies after the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Some of them were even involved with the bombing and all of them have said their goal is to impose Sharia Law on second-class Americans.

As Jonathan S. Tobin noted, the old Mythical Muslim Backlash is “now being weaponized again to portray an unapologetic anti-Semite like Omar as a victim.”

But she’s right about one thing: There was indeed spying on the community and massive governmental violations of the law so that “all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

That community was Donald Trump, his campaign, his administration and the Americans who elected him. It will come as a shock to these Islamic and Social Justice Supremacists, but--brace yourself here--OTHER PEOPLE ALSO POSSESS CIVIL RIGHTS! Not just you and your freaky friends. These phony FISA warrants and all the rest are Civil Rights violations of the highest order.

Donald Trump and the people who support him are entitled to "Social Justice", too.

You don’t CAIR, lady–but we do.

I used to think "We will never forget" was a unifying message.

Thanks to Cory Booker I now know "some people did something" is the correct phrase when seeking unity.

Omar was a refugee.

Time for the other refugees to join together and trash her.

Or else she’s going to be the face of refugees in the US.

She makes Trump’s arguments for him. She is the epitome of US immigration stupidity.

Drago said...

Corey Booker is totally, extremely, fanatically heterosexual. Completely. And now this raging lover of women is out to take on Trump!...

... all the while romancing the ladies, whom he is totally totally into, during the evenings.

Seriously, he digs chicks.

I mean, he just announced a brand new girlfriend in an extremely well planned and executed "roll out" marketing campaign! Doesn't that prove it?

I mean, sure, they dont get to see each other much, being such active personalities, but that just makes those few seconds they share passing each other at the airport just that much more heterosexually INTENSE baby!!!

Browndog said...

The most infuriating part of what Omar (D-Muslim Brotherhood) did was her hand gesture. A dismissive blocking of the background noise that was "some people did something". This small, insignificant thing way over there caused "us", meaning muslims, to lose our rights.

Darrell said...

Booker should star in an episode of the new Twilight Zone--The Zone of Color. He'll fit right in on the racism displayed there.

Birkel said...

I'd like to know how Ilhan Omar (D-Istanbul) and her supporters believe they are going to win these arguments. What do they think is(are) the path(s) to success? And how do they define success?

Success for the president and conservatives is pointing out the radicalism of the Leftist Collectivists. The path to success is letting the American people see what the Left wants on the way to re-election.

The Left, and its LLR allies who post lies online in order to smear a conservative president, have almost no chance of winning this set of arguments.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

The left are systematically destroying free speech by calling any speech that comes out of any mouth who isn't properly leftwing, as hate speech.

Browndog said...

I've compiled a list of democrats that have publicly voiced even the smallest concern, let alone critique of Omar's remark:

Tulsi Gabbard














Impressive list, no?

They're going to rely on nice white people's inability to defend themselves, and then they're going to outbreed them, maybe?

Sorry - my 9:00 was re Tulsi Gabbard, who I believe began service in 2003.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Tulsi - I kinda like her. Not a total and complete Marxist fascist leftwing liar liar pants on fire democratic.

Bob Boyd said...

The part of Omar's comment that has gotten all the attention was actually more of the boring same.
If she had changed one word, her comment would have sounded like a million comments we've heard from the Washington establishment, from Bush 43 on down, since 9/11.

"some Muslims did something and all of us are starting to lose access to our civil liberties."

Since English is her second language, I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt that her intention was not to minimize the 9/11 attacks.
But the fact that we have heard the same sentiments, from so many of our leaders, for so long, gives the lie to her claim that Muslims are considered second class citizens in this country. They aren't.
Also, if you look at her full statement there, her actual intention is hardly admirable. In my opinion, she is encouraging angry confrontations based on nothing but the interpretation of a stranger's facial expression. She's basically fomenting fear, suspicion and division to benefit herself politically. In other words, she's following what has become Democrat SOP.

pacwest said...

Hence, I do not give you the benefit of the doubt that you're not being intentionally obtuse, at best.

Mr. Majestyk said...

It looks like Omar smiles right at the end of saying, "some people did something." Almost as if she is happy that that something happened.

@ Browndog

I thought your observation about the contribution of her hand gesture to the dismissive impression she made was a good one.

buwaya said...

The Muslim problem in the US, as a domestic matter, is a self-limiting annoyance.
You are importing many more of them than you should, and they will, collectively, be a burden on you forever, but they aren't an existential threat. This is an unwise policy but its just one of a vast number of unwise policies. It is the cumulative result of all of them that will destroy you.

Your most significant immediate problem is the war among the white post-Christian castes. People like Omar and Booker, and the tribes they represent, are just cannon-fodder in this struggle.

Chuck said...

In Drago-land, my writing that Rep. Omar is the "shame" of the Democratic Left somehow equals an endorsement of her. Why? It's because in the next sentence, I also criticized Trump for his own similarly-stupid comments.

That is Trump-cultism for you.

Or better yet, a textbook example of Trump Derangement Syndrome Derangement Syndrome. (TDSDS.) TDSDS is the constellation of mental health symptoms in which all critics of President Donald J. Trump are lumped together as far-left ideologues. And that any criticism of Trump, no matter how valid, must be met with a personal attack on the critic, no matter what the critic's personal background might be.

TDSDS.

Ilhan Omar, 9/11, and the Great Coordinated Democratic Freakout.

This tweet is an excellent example of why provacteur/novelist Michel Houellebecq wrote (somehwat) in support of Trump in Harpers. It's only somewhat in support, because I don't think the Frenchman could imagine that Trump was sincere and serious and would, ultimately, refuse to submit to the extent that he has: such must be difficult for even a highly imaginative Frenchman to imagine. The French have already submitted, is what I take from his novel Submission, they just did it without (yet) the benefits of the fun parts.

No, you went further - you said Trump's "shameful" comments were JUST LIKE Omar's comments. Here is the quote again, since you are a dishonest weasel: "Well Omar is the shame of the Democratic Left for her dimwitted comments. Just like Pres. Trump is the shame of the Trumpist Republicans for his dimwitted comments"

1) Why did you abbreviate President. It four more characters. Petty much?
2) Don't call me a Republican. I left the GOP over their 8th Omnibus Surrender.
3) Most importantly, source the Trump "shameful stupid" comment that is just like Omar's 9-11 Denial.

Also (geez these are stacking up), source your claim that you ever posted voting for Trump. You made a big deal of saying "google it" when it would have been simpler to provide the evidence to back up your claim. You're the one who's credibility is in tatters, we shouldn't have to do your homework for you.

Omar is not a recent immigrant, she has been in the US for 25 years, and was educated in English speaking schools. She speaks English just fine when it suits her.

When did you last hear an immigrant refer to a hundred dollar bill as a "Benjamin"? Her "it's all about the Benjamin's" remark proves she understands colloquial English and anti-Semitic slang as well as a native English speaker.

BTW- I have no problem with her speech, ugly as it may be; it's her right. I do have a problem with a sitting Representative, AOC, trying to censor The NY Post.

The House leadership let these freshmen run amok for what one assumes was perceived as social media outreach to younger voters. It's now bitten the party in the ass. Good work Nan!

Similar to Althouse's reasoning behind hating the term "garner" I hate the term quasi-criminal. We already have perfectly good phrases and words to mean what is covered by "quasi-criminal": not criminal and/or legal. The only reason to describe anything as quasi-criminal is to mis-characterize it. Then he tries to hide behind "perhaps", another weasel word.

This is asshole commentary.

That is the new LLR/democrat excuse for spying on domestic political opponents and their stalinit uniparty bullshit.

The Mueller report is indeed coming out. There will also be another investigation.

There are a fair number of GOPe cucks in DC that need to be rounded up for their part in the coup. Anyone still in favor of ousting Trump with this stalinist crap should be sent to the tripod with them.

JAORE said...

"The fear that the full report will one day be either leaked or released should make rabid Trumpers happy, if Trump has nothing to fear."

Sure, sure the full report just to make sure the entire context is available.

Just like the full context of the talk where the left twisted Trump's words to say some of the neo-Nazis were fine people.
Just like the full context of the discussion where the left twisted Trump's words to say Mexicans were all criminals.
Just like the full context of the policy where Trump stopped all Muslims from entering the country.

Bull shit. The left has NO interest in a fair reading of the full context. They want every hot button word/phrase or paragraph expressed in whatever form that causes the most pain for President Trump.

Big Mike said...

@Rick, “quasi-criminal” just means “perfectly legal but we don’t like that you did it because you were supposed to lose.”

Martin said...

I checked out the "context" and it only gets worse--she said that CAIR was founded after 9/11 when some people did something and Muslims were losing their civil liberties.

So it is dissembling about 9/11, to lead into an outright lie, said in support of a Hamas front organization.

The whole national Democratic Party is dead to me if they don't renounce this--and I expect they worn't.

Alex said...

So which narrative will hold bigger sway in 2020 for swing voters:

a. Omar is oppressed brown person being persecuted by the right-wing
b. Omar is an antisemitic representative of the Democrat Party

It'll be fascinating to see which one wins.

pacwest said...

"quasi-criminal things revealed about Trump,"

New word!! He should be quasi-prosecuted for his quasi-crimes then. We'll quasi-get him this time! JHC.

And I don't need any prompt to call for real prosecution of real crimes by Clinton. I will do that continously. I (unlike some) give a shit about the precedent that was set.

I would have called myself a LLR once upon a time, but if a part of that is letting corrupt government officials off because orange man bad count me out.

Fucking quasi-lawyers are the worst!

Chuck said...

I never suggested that being a quasi-criminal will get someone locked up. Or even prosecuted.

I'm suggesting it might get someone defeated in a bid for re-election as president of the United States.

Hillary Clinton isn't a criminal by the standards of some of you, right? Never indicted, charged, or convicted of anything. Is she a quasi-criminal?

"I never suggested that being a quasi-criminal will get someone locked up. Or even prosecuted."

Then work on your wording. Maybe 'his opponents will find something in the report that they will be able to use to convince swing voters not to re-elect him.' That remains a real possibility given the Dems motivation, and the business he was in. Quasi-criminal. Still lmfao.

As for Hillary, correct me if I am wrong, but isn't destroying evidence that has been supeoned a criminal act? What I think of as logic leads me to believe that Clinton committed criminal acts. In fact, I believe, personal belief mind you, that she/they committed treason. Clever as they might have been about it. And I was ready to vote for her over McCain in '08. Shame on me.

Your quasi-defense of Hillary Clinton is noted.

Life Long quasi-Republican for the quasi-win.

pacwest,
I would have voted for Hillary over McCain.
At least with Hillary we would have had loyal opposition.
McCain would have done the same things, policy-wise, and truly ruined the country.

No shame on you, quasi- or otherwise.

Crimes, quasi- and otherwise, occur at their doing.
Unsolved crimes are not less criminal because no person was convicted for the act.

A car thief is a criminal whether they are caught and whether I know of the stealing, as soon as they commit the act.
Innocent until proven guilty is a legal - and not a moral - standard.

If a person quasi-steals, they are neither legally nor morally suspect.

Smear merchants are not quasi-ass holes.
No, they are guilty from the first smear.

I'm not defending her. In 2016, I used the Althouse comments pages to call her "the worst Democratic nominee since Al Smith." My regard for Hillary is so abysmal, I voted for Trump.

So I am not "defending" Hillary. I am ridiculing your hypocrisy.

Birkel said...

Read more carefully, quasi-lawyer-boy.
I said you were quasi-defending Hillary Clinton.
Prove me wrong, smear merchant.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph — so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire."
