Sen. Cory Booker (D - N.J.) says if you don’t oppose the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, you are “complicit in the evil.” He then got biblical about the nomination and somehow compared fighting the nomination to walking through the “valley of the shadow of death.”
Yeah. This Tuesday press conference in DC was pretty weird.
“This has nothing to do with politics this has to do with who we are as moral beings,” Booker said.
“I’m here to call on folk to understand that in a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there is no bystanders. You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it,” Booker continued.
Booker then attempted to get biblical about the nomination and started referencing Psalms. “We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death,” he said.
“It doesn’t say that I sit in the valley of the shadow of death. It doesn’t say I’m watching on the sidelines in the valley of the shadow of death. It says I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death. It says I am taking agency that I am going to make it through this crisis,” Booker said. “And so I am calling on everyone right now who understands what’s at stake, who understands who Kavanaugh is. My ancestors said ‘if someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.’ He has shown us who he is.”
This statement comes from the from the same Cory Booker who previously criticized President Trump’s State of The Union Address this January as someone who “used religion tonight to divide.”
I think Sen. Booker has shown us who he is.
