New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D) claims that anyone – ANYONE – who opposes his efforts to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is “complicit in evil.”
Sometimes, Booker just tries too hard. He tries too hard to be more outrageous and more unhinged than his liberal colleagues, and he ends up simply sounding like an idiot.
“I’m here to call on folk to understand that in the moral moment there is no, there is no neutral,” Booker claimed. “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.”
Can’t believe my ears listening to @CoryBooker tape telling audience they are “complicit in evil” if the support Judge Kavanaugh. I hope this is played as often as Cohen tape today, and that it follows the senator everywhere. Civility police?

Booker even quoted the Bible to let Americans, and Republican lawmakers more specifically, know that they are evil if they support Kavanaugh.
That’s right, a member of the party that once removed God from their platform then famously and vociferously booed any effort to reinsert the language, is citing the Bible.
“There’s a saying in the Abrahamic faiths one of the Psalms that says ‘Yea though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death,” Booker preached.
“But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death.'”

Holy unhinged, Batman. A prominent Democrat who some speculate could be a 2020 candidate for President is calling a Supreme Court nominee and anyone who supports him “evil”, and describing his candidacy in terms of the “shadow of death.”
Senator Orrin Hatch blasted Booker for the “Armageddon-style rhetoric.”
This is really quite alarming rhetoric.
Just a few weeks in and it’s already startlingly clear that Senate Democrats will not challenge Kavanaugh on substance (because they won’t land a blow) so they’ll stick to Armageddon-style rhetoric.https://t.co/8cv50x2jhp

Guess who Booker is referring to when he calls Kavanaugh supporters “evil.”
A good portion of Americans. (RELATED: The Numbers Are In, And They’re Looking Good For Kavanaugh).

Booker isn’t the only high-profile Democrat to drift into apocalyptic rhetoric when it comes to Judge Kavanaugh. The party’s last presidential candidate claimed he would bring America back to the days of slavery.
“I used to worry that [the GOP] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s,” Hillary Clinton said of Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Bear in mind, the man they are painting as “evil” was recently caught, despite the whirlwind of activity in his life days after he was named by President Trump as a possible successor to Justice Anthony Kennedy, feeding the homeless.

A friend of mine spotted Judge Kavanaugh serving hot dinners to the poor this afternoon, after a day spent huddling with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. #AppellateTwitter #SCOTUS https://t.co/WHm5eCZbXd pic.twitter.com/7amp6JrZx3

I sure hope those individuals somehow manage to make it out of the “valley of the shadow of death” with that “evil” man serving them.
