Cory Booker doesn’t stand a chance of being the Democratic nominee in 2020, but he keeps hanging in there with the rest of them. Now he’s promising to root out white supremacism; after all, the majority of terrorist attacks in the country have been perpetrated by right-wing extremists, and the majority of those right-wing extremists were white supremacists.
Also note that, like everyone else keeping a tally of terrorist attacks on United States soil, Booker begins his tally starting Sept. 12, 2001 … kind of convenient.
The majority of terror attacks in this country since 9/11 have been carried out by right-wing extremists—and the majority of those have been white supremacists. As president I will use the full force of the presidency to root out white supremacist threats wherever they arise.

We’d have to compare stats, but we don’t think the Las Vegas shooter was a white supremacist, nor was the Orlando nightclub shooter, nor was the Fort Hood shooter, nor the Parkland shooter, not the Boston Marathon bombers. El Paso? Yes. Dayton? No. Focusing on white supremacists is going to overlook a lot of terrorist activity.
And the one on 9/11 that killed 3000 people in a single day was carried out by 19 muslims. Will you use the "full force of the presidency" to root out Muslim extremists? What about Boston, San Bernadino & Orlando? Were those "far-right?"https://t.co/wIlGDJ0nlY

…..@CoryBooker your classifications is playing a dangerous hype that will have horrible consequences. Based on charges assimilated up to recently here's some info from CNN following all US terror attacks https://t.co/mXzOTL4Q7Y

What about the Dayton shooter! Forget about him? He was a leftist, socialist Elizabeth Warren loving, Antifa sympathizer. You also forgot the Boston Marathon bombing & the San Bernardino & Pulse Nightclub shootings were carried out by radicalized Muslims.

Completely false to say "in this country" The only way you have a foot to stand on is by applying the Orwellian Newspeak Liberal definition of Domestic Terrorism which in no way equates to all terrorist attacks in this country.
But just keep lying, eventually they'll believe it.

Cory Booker, your biggest worry is how much longer you’ll last on the democrat debate stage. You’re looking like Eric Swalwell more & more every day.

It's amusing watching Dems move from one set of buzzwords to the next. For a while,anyone that didn't agree with them were simply "racists". Now it's all abt "white supremacists".
There are no appreciable "white supremacist threats", Senator. Try ideas over fear to get votes.

Poor Spartacus, he is still suspended in time—
With every wack-a-doodle statement he seems to think he is having a profound Spartacus moment. ?

What’s ‘right wing’ about them?
They are certainly in direct opposition to any conservative values. And in many cases, they align with Left wing values.
It seems like ‘right wing’ is the lazy go-to title for any non-Muslim, non-gang-related atrocity.

Booker hasn’t gotten the memo yet that we’ve moved from white supremacy back to Trump being mentally unfit to be president.
