Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) at the “She the People” presidential forum – 4/24/19. Screen grab: NBC News.

On Wednesday, Houston, TX was the host of the “She the People” presidential forum where several Democratic candidates lined up to shamelessly pander talk to a crowd full of perpetually angry concerned progressive women.

As Red State‘s Alex Parker wrote yesterday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was not well-received by forum-goers because he was found to be insufficiently woke (too male, too old, too rich, too white).

One candidate who was welcomed with open arms was Sen. Cory Booker (NJ). The crowd especially lit up when Booker was asked a question about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5).

Fox News reports:

Shortly after taking the stage, the New Jersey senator was asked what is he going to do about Omar being the target of hate after her comments about “the outsize influence of AIPAC in determining U.S. foreign policy” and other flippant remarks prompted criticism both the House Democratic Leadership and from President Trump.

“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?” a woman asked Booker.

[…]

“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,” he said. “This kind of selective condemnation should be a chorus of people condemning it.”

“And more than this, the kind of language our president uses, especially about black women in power, the kind of language this President uses – it is toxic,” he added.

Watch video of Booker’s remarks below:

Booker is, of course, engaging in the Democratic tactic of shutuppery, where the left plays various Absolute Moral Authority cards in order to try and shut down the debate.

As I’ve written before, Democrats really have no room to talk when it comes to the use of rhetoric that could potentially incite violence:

Democrats, including the three amigas [Tlaib, Omar, AOC], have relentlessly accused Republicans of being Nazis, white supremacists, child killers and terrorists (for supporting the NRA). But yet when their rhetoric gets turned around on them, they want to cry foul and hide behind the women of color shield?

If progressive women of color truly want to be treated as equals on the political playing field, then they need to put on their big girl panties and stop whining every time their political opposition pushes back on them.

Nobody wants to see someone get hurt over political disagreements, but Democratic complaints about threats of violence are being used to stifle ALL criticisms of them whether “incendiary” or not.

Democrats want to be the ones drawing the line on what type of rhetoric is acceptable and what type is not, and their calls for civility are usually just covers for telling Republicans to shut up an do what we tell you to.

That’s not how it works.

Not only that, but when it comes to the issue of “inciteful” rhetoric and actions, Democrats might want to clean up their own house first, and they should start with Cory Booker himself, Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI), Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) …

    Ladies and gents, I am here to report to you some good news: Chivalry in politics is not dead just yet!

    There has been a lotta lotta grumbling in Democratic circles over the fact that, in spite of the diversity of their presidential candidate field (young candidates, female candidates, black candidates, gay candidates, Asian-American candidates), the old white guys have consistently been polling at the top of the pack.

    Because of this “concern”, some of the white guys in the race have taken to admitting to their “privilege” in order to show females and persons of color that they are down with the wokeness.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) has even vowed to pick a female vice presidential candidate if he wins the nomination because he, you know, respects women so much.

    But for Vox writer Matthew Yglesias, none of these gestures are enough. Male candidates for president must do one thing and one thing only to prove their commitment to treating women as equals on the playing field:

    Drop out of the race and let a woman win.

    It’s true. That’s really his suggestion:

    I mean, nothing says “I’m down with viewing a woman as my equal” like urging her male opponents to step aside so she can get ahead, right?

Voxsplaining Social Media Politics North Carolina Media Matt Yglesias kamala harris journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

    And why should the men do this for the lady candidates? Because Democrats need more wins and stuff:

    I should note for the record that Yglesias isn’t the first Democrat to make this suggestion. Democratic strategist Alexis Grenell told CNN‘s giggling Brooke Baldwin last month that the guys just needed to go away and let the women battle this one out:

    GRENELL: I’m over it. I’m over them all. In the point is, what they can really be doing is putting their resources behind these women. With Bernie for instance — again, who I voted for proudly and I think had made really important moves in 2016. I don’t understand why he was running now when Elizabeth Warren, who’s his ideological twin, could really benefit from his support, his money, his movements.

    Shorter: Bernie, would you do the socialistic thing share your campaign wealth with Liz Warren?

    It’s comical, really, and just goes to show the folly of the Democratic party’s obsession with identity politics.

    For that matter, I think the gay community maybe should be offended by Yglesias’s and Grenell’s suggestions about men dropping out of the race to make way for the women. Why isn’t everyone suggesting all other candidates forfeit the race in order to let Mayor Pete Buttigieg win*?

    Amirite?

    Joe Biden Called Domestic Terrorist Group Antifa “Courageous” In His 2020 Announcement

    Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-called-domestic-terrorist-group-antifa-courageous-in-his-2020-announcement Joe Biden Called Domestic Terrorist Group Antifa “Courageous” In His 2020 Announcement Violence racism Politics mob Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats antifa Allow Media Exception 2020 election 2020

    As my colleague Sister Toldja covered earlier, former VP Joe Biden has now officially entered into the 2020 presidential race, and is now competing for the Democratic nomination against such heavy hitters as that mayor with the weird last name, and that Irish guy with the Hispanic nickname that couldn’t beat Ted Cruz despite the left pouring its collective hopes, dreams, and cash into him.

    To kick off his campaign, Biden released an admittedly grabbing announcement video. Summed up, the video amounts to “Trump is a racist and his reaction to the Charlottesville, Va. protest proves it.”

    Biden tells the story of the Charlottesville, ending with the death of one woman who was killed after one of the white supremacists drove his vehicle into a crowd. Biden describes the white supremacists in very story-telling terms with “crazed faces, illuminated by torches, veins bulging and baring the fangs of racism.”

    Poetic.

    However, one line in the video really grabs the attention of anyone who knows better, however. It happened right after he describes the white supremacists and what they were chanting.

    “They were met by a courageous group of Americans and a violent clash ensued,” said Biden.

    That’s about all Biden says about the opposition to the white supremacists, and for a good reason. The “courageous Americans” that showed up to oppose the white supremacists were Antifa, who are just as bad, if not worse, than the tiki torch-wielding bad guys who showed up that night.

    To give you a quick reminder of who Antifa is, their name is short for “anti-fascist.” The problem is that Antifa is about as fascist as you can get. If you disagree with them in any way, or they stand opposed to you, they won’t just get angry and protest you. They will physically assault you, attempt to intimidate you or silence you in some way.

    To give you some examples, Antifa showed up to the home of Tucker Carlson where they attempted to gain access to his home. Carlson’s wife and children were forced to hide in the pantry as Antifa stood outside his home threatening Carlson’s safety.

    Antifa recently attacked an elderly man for not obeying them in Portland, while police stood by and let it happen.

    They have called for the assassination of Trump, and Steven Crowder went undercover and caused Antifa members to expose the fact that they were going to use deadly weapons against their opposition.

    To be clear, they are labeled domestic terrorists by U.S. security agencies, and they live up to the classification.

    This is who former VP and current 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden is calling “courageous.”

    Screengrab from https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1121040955346509827

    For reasons that quite escape me, the cause célèbre on the progressive wing of the otherwise socialist Democrat party is allowing incarcerated felons to vote. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris have all endorsed the idea, though Harris sobered up long enough to walk back her remarks. Sanders, as far as I know, is still sticking by his view that the Boston Marathon bomber should be allowed to vote for Sanders for president. The chief of staff for Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the currently unindicted felon Saikat Chakrabarti, equated the right of incarcerated felons to vote with the exercise of Second Amendment rights.

    The subject of this political movement came up on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN.

    CUOMO: Top 2020 Democratic hopefuls have been following Bernie Sanders’ lead on many progressive policy stances. But last night, Senator Sanders said that people in prison, even terrorists like the Boston bomber, have the right to vote while they’re in prison. D-Lemon, what’s your take?

    LEMON: I was stunned, as you could see. You could see on our faces and the responses. Listen, I’m glad we asked the question, I’m glad you asked the question first to Bernie and then we talked to the other candidates, the subsequent candidates who came on. It’s interesting. I think you were right that it’s going to be a campaign for those who said either “yes, they should be able to vote, even the most awful people among us, or we should have a conversation about it.” I think it’s going to be an issue here.

    CUOMO: Senator Kamala Harris said that she has now revised her opinion and saying those who are in prison, “no, they don’t get to vote.”

    LEMON: No. Well, last night that’s not what she said. But listen, she can revise her position and change her mind or maybe she just didn’t get it out last night. But I think that is going to be an issue. And I think it’s an interesting subject or question to debate. But I think most people in America feel like once you paid your debt to society, maybe you should have the opportunity to go out and vote, and at least exercise your constitutional rights. But if you’re in prison, if you have committed a crime, like the Boston Marathon bombings, or if you assaulted or abused a child, I don’t think most Americans would want people like that to vote.

    CUOMO: You know what it frames? It frames the proposition for voters as these people are way out there in the Democratic party. Whoa, have they gone far left.

    Take a moment and contemplate this. On a network that is reflexively far left and an arm of the Democrat party, two of the more leftwing personalities agree that letting people vote in prison is nuts.

    Cuomo hints at the danger this spells for the Democrats in 2020. If this is discussed enough, the Democrat nominee, no matter who they are, is going to be saddled with the baggage of this postion by the force of millions of dollars in attack ads.

    Obama to Biden: Good Luck Buddy, But You’re On Your Own

    Westlake Legal Group ObamaBidenLaugh-620x412 Obama to Biden: Good Luck Buddy, But You’re On Your Own primary Politics Non-endorsement No Loyalty Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story elections democrats Betrayal Bernie Sanders Barack Obama 2020

    So much for the supposed brotherhood Obama talked about between these two. There’s no loyalty in Washington.

    Joe Biden finally entered the Presidential race this morning. This comes after months of “will he, won’t he” intrigue that really centered around the timing more than any actual question of whether he’d run. Whoever had a Thursday at 6AM in the pool of announcement criteria, collect your winnings.

    Given the fact that Biden is only relevant because he was VP under Barack Obama, you’d think the former President would be apt to help his friend and former running mate out by getting behind his campaign.

    Nah, says Obama, you’re on your own buddy.

    Former President Barack Obama expressed support Thursday for Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, but stopped short of an explicit endorsement for his longtime running mate.

    Obama, who has remained active in politics since departing office more than two years ago, has offered Biden more than he has to the rest of the Democratic field, as the 19 other candidates are all vying for attention, support, and anything to boost their campaigns.

    “President Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate in 2008 was one of the best decisions he ever made,” said Obama spokesperson Katie Hill. “He relied on the Vice President’s knowledge, insight, and judgment throughout both campaigns and the entire presidency. The two forged a special bond over the last 10 years and remain close today.”

    Here’s the thing.

    If Obama trusted Biden enough to have him second in line for the Presidency in his administration, why wouldn’t he trust him enough to endorse him to, you know, become President? Seems like a pretty common sense move and one any decent friend would make.

    After all, Biden did spend eight years defending Obama and helping push his policy initiatives forward. You’d think that would earn him some direct backing. On the other hand, Biden was headed to irrelevancy until Obama chose him in 2008 to be part of the ticket, so maybe the former President doesn’t see himself as owning the former VP anything? It wouldn’t surprise me if Obama’s next-level arrogance came into play here and he actually saw no intrinsic value in what Biden did for him.

    For Biden’s part, he’s suddenly claiming after the fact that he asked Obama not to endorse him.

    Yeah, I’m sure Biden, knowing that such an endorsement would seal the nomination for him, asked Obama not give him any support. No one really believes that. It’s the pathetic “no, you aren’t dumping me, I’m actually dumping you” routine.

    Let me show you how that conversation actually went.

    If it comes down to Bernie or Biden though, I’d guess Obama will quickly shed his “above the fray” positioning and give a real endorsement. It’ll be interesting to see how Biden chooses to run in this campaign. He’s already lost most of the Obama alums to younger, supposedly hipper candidates. Biden also has the issue of coming across as too moderate for the rabid left-wing base of the Democratic party.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing the circular firing squad that’s coming. Bernie has signaled he’s playing for keeps and he won’t be handling an establishment figure like Biden with kid gloves. Then you’ve got the inter-sectional candidates that will all attack him for being old and white.

    The debates are going to be insane.

    “It Will Be Nasty”: Trump Welcomes Biden to 2020 Race, Complete With Fancy New Nickname

    Westlake Legal Group Trump-declares-Obamacare-repeal-and-replace-is-next-620x372 “It Will Be Nasty”: Trump Welcomes Biden to 2020 Race, Complete With Fancy New Nickname twitter tweets Sleepy Joe republicans Politics Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections

    Former VP Joe Biden has officially put his hat into the ring for the 2020 presidential race (no surprise, given he’s privately been telling people he was) and you can bet President Donald Trump was already ready for him.

    Taking to Twitter, Trump unleashed on Biden with a fancy new nickname, a few jabs, and a warning that things are going to get pretty nasty, but due more to the people on his side being heinous than anything Trump might do.

    “Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe,” tweeted Trump. “I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!”

    As it stands, Biden does pose the largest threat to Trump as almost every poll shows Democrats most enthusiastic about the former VP. The problem is, not many others seem to have confidence in him for one reason or another. Either he’s too moderate, too creepy, or too white. Even his current senior advisor has qualms about him.

    Trump’s warning that Biden’s party is going to make things pretty awful is likely accurate.

    It would appear that Biden is fully willing to delve into the nastier parts of the left himself, specifically, agreements with the social justice aspects of the radical left. Biden has already delved into the idea that this nation’s ills are a result of “white man’s culture.”

    If that’s the case, then Trump is going to have a field day with Biden should he manage to secure the Democrat nomination. He’s already faced that kind of ideological nonsense once before, only this time he has a strong economy to back up his talk instead of sensationalistic tweets and fancy nicknames for his opponents.

    The nicknames seem to help, though.

    Former Top Bernie Strategist Has Decided Joe Biden Is the Safe Bet, Joins His Camp

    Westlake Legal Group symone-sanders-new-hostile-takeover-cnn-SCREENSHOT-620x334 Former Top Bernie Strategist Has Decided Joe Biden Is the Safe Bet, Joins His Camp symone sanders Politics Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Bernie Sanders Allow Media Exception 2020

    Sen. Bernie Sanders might be one of the big 2020 contenders, but former VP Joe Biden is the only one that has his number. Apparently, one of Sanders’ former big strategists has read the tea leaves and sided with Biden.

    In 2016, Democratic strategist and CNN analyst Symone Sanders was one of the movers and shakers of Bernie’s campaign, but after having a lengthy sit down with Biden, Symone was convinced to join his side and subsequently sent out a tweet indicating where she wound up.

    “[Joe and Jill Biden] are a class act. Over the course of this campaign, Vice President Biden is going to make his case to the American ppl. He won’t always be perfect, but I believe he will get it right,” tweeted Sanders.

    She has also changed her Twitter bio to reflect her new position, calling herself a “senior advisor” within the Biden campaign.

    Despite her new position, there seems to be a bit of a divide between she and Biden. According to Mediaite, Sanders has spoken out against Biden in the past, specifically when it came to Biden’s habit of getting into the personal space of women:

    While polling data suggests Biden will be one of the most viable Democratic nominees in the primaries, Sanders has called that assumption “overhyped,” even while conceding he would be a “formidable” candidate. Also, Sanders did not approve of how Biden joked off the recent controversies about his questionable physical interactions with multiple women.

    It’s true that advisors and strategists jump from candidate to candidate often. However, Sanders doesn’t even seem to be that fond of Biden. This can only mean that he’s either paying her handsomely, or she believes he has the best chance of winning.

    Just looking at the positioning here, it may be safe to say that Sanders doesn’t like Bernie’s chances, and is looking to put a presidential win on her record.

    Joe Biden has run for President twice and you have to think he believes that the third time will be the charm. Cue up the HOLD MY BEER chant.

    Former lawyer to porn star Stormy Daniels and currently federally indicted on a lot of bad stuff, Michael Avenatti, has given Joe Biden his blessing.

    I wonder if both of them sharing the nickname “creepy” had something to do with it.

    According to Fox News

    Joe Biden has already picked up a big-name endorsement — but it might not be one he is happy to receive.

    “I am extremely happy that @JoeBiden has decided to enter the race. He offers Dems the very best chance in 2020, especially in key states. He has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again. He has my enthusiastic support.”

    What a BOOST!!

    Creepy Porn Lawyer was a constant thorn in the side of President Trump most of last year and a CNN fav until he ran into some trouble with the feds earlier this year. He was accused of, among other things, trying to shake down Nike for hush payments.

    Until this, he was actually thinking about running for the Democratic nod for President in 2020 but decided against that in Dec of last year. That means that he would have been facing the guy who he just endorsed and shares the same nickname as him.

    Creepy.

    Maybe we can have a Creepy Uncle Joe and Creepy Porn Lawyer ticked for the Dems ticket next year.

    Party Is in Transition. Does Biden’s Brand Still Pack a Punch?

    ImageWestlake Legal Group merlin_153105099_6c195974-e431-48ff-bb43-55b8effa80c3-articleLarge Party Is in Transition. Does Biden’s Brand Still Pack a Punch? United States Politics and Government Presidential Election of 2020 Polls and Public Opinion elections Democratic Party Biden, Joseph R Jr

    When Joe Biden first ran for Senate in 1972, 40 percent of Democrats believed that whites had a right to segregate neighborhoods.

    Today, he plans to seek the presidential nomination of a very different Democratic Party, one that is increasingly progressive, diverse and well educated. Few analysts consider him a clear favorite, even though his consistent early support in the polls would seem to merit it.

    If Mr. Biden wins, it will be in part because older Democrats still have the votes to decide the party’s nomination in favor of a relatively moderate, establishment-backed candidate, as they have done in the past. He enters with a lead in the polls because of support from those voters.

    His candidacy, of course, faces many questions besides whether there’s still a constituency for his moderate, working-class brand. He is also 76 years old, and he has often been considered an undisciplined, even gaffe-prone, campaigner.

    In some cases, Mr. Biden’s nearly 50-year record in Washington isn’t merely moderate, but out of step with the mores of today’s Democratic Party.

    For most of the latter half of the 20th century, Democrats struggled to hold conservative, white working-class voters together in a coalition with African-Americans and the party’s liberal elite. Republicans didn’t make it easy: They tried to peel away the conservative white Democratic rank and file, often with success, by appealing to their views on race, crime, welfare, religion and more.

    This was not a coalition of ideologically consistent, progressive voters. It can be difficult for today’s policy-driven activists to imagine, but many were voting Democratic mainly because of identity and interest — they saw themselves as union workers, African-Americans, white Southerners, the poor. They were strong, lifelong Democrats mainly because of who they were, not because of what they believed.

    What they believed was often very different from what many Democrats believe today.

    Nearly 40 percent opposed interracial marriage when Mr. Biden first sought a Senate seat, according to the General Social Survey. Nearly 80 percent opposed legalizing marijuana and believed same-sex sexual relations were wrong. Over all, three-quarters of Democrats were whites without a college degree, and about half of Democrats were moderate or conservative whites without a college degree.

    Mr. Biden has been criticized recently for having opposed busing in the mid-1970s. At the time, Democratic-leaning voters opposed busing by 79 percent to 21 percent, according to the General Social Survey. Over all, it was about as popular with Democratic voters as the Trump tax cuts are today.

    White voters without a degree were still a majority of the party’s voters in the early 1990s, when Democrats were seeking to co-opt Republican messages on welfare and tough-on-crime policies. By then, the share of Democrats who believed that whites had a right to segregate neighborhoods had dropped to 15 percent, from 40 percent in 1972. But 15 percent is still a significant share, about as large a share as Hispanics represent today in the party. Self-identified moderate and conservative Democrats outnumbered liberals by two to one.

    A Pew Research report from 1994 offers a striking look at the Democratic coalition at that time. It was an early edition of Pew’s running political typology series, and it included four Democratic-leaning groups under the headline “The ‘Not So’ Left.” Some groups were characterized as “socially intolerant,” or as holding “strongly conservative views on race and social welfare programs.” Even “New Democrats” rejected liberal views on race.

    Today, self-identified liberals equal or even outnumber moderates and conservatives within the party. White voters without a degree represent just 30 percent of Democratic-leaning voters, according to an Upshot analysis of Pew Research surveys from December 2017 to September 2018. Pew’s typology now includes an ideologically consistent, liberal group.

    There is no doubt that this is not the Democratic Party of the early 1990s. But it is not the Democratic Party of “woke” social media either. It is somewhere in between.

    Mr. Biden, for instance, recently faced criticism after accusations that he touched some women in ways that made them feel uncomfortable. It was a crisis for his bid, or at least it seemed that way if you closely followed news reports or were active on social media. But a recent Fox News poll found that just 15 percent of Democrats said they were “very” or “extremely” concerned about the criticisms, while 51 percent said they weren’t concerned at all.

    Today, the Democratic Party is in transition. Over all, it is roughly divided between its past and its future, and split about evenly between white voters with and without a college degree, between voters older or younger than age 50, and between self-identified liberal and moderate voters.

    The fairly even splits make it hard to argue that any particular kind of factional candidate, whether a moderate or a democratic socialist, has an inside path to the nomination.

    As much as the Democratic Party has changed, there’s still a group of Democrats who hold fairly conservative views on some issues, like the nearly 30 percent who oppose marijuana legalization or say same-sex sexual relations are almost always or always wrong. Beyond them, there’s a broader group of voters who hold progressive or liberal views but aren’t exactly progressive activists. A majority of Democrats say political correctness is a problem, for example, according to data from the Hidden Tribes project.

    None of these examples suggest that Mr. Biden will cruise to the nomination. But they at least complicate the case that he will face a particularly stiff electoral penalty for his conduct.

    And Mr. Biden brings strengths to the race as well. He enters with substantial good will from having been President Obama’s vice president. He starts with the advantage of being seen by many as the most “electable” Democrat in a year when the party’s voters are desperate to defeat President Trump.

    Ultimately, Mr. Biden seems as if he would benefit in this primary campaign if today’s divided Democratic Party is still a bit more like its past than its future.

    2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA-15) wants you to know that he’s aware he has white privilege. He also wants you to know that when it comes to choosing a vice presidential candidate, he is committed to picking a woman to be second in charge – because he, you know, respects women and values their opinions so much.

    Swalwell posted his tweet Tuesday night but the comments were from a Monday segment on MSNBC‘s “All In” program with host Joy Reid. Here’s what she asked him – and his answer:

    In the MSNBC interview, which aired Monday, Swalwell was addressing a question from host Joy Reid, who said there was a “lot of consternation among women” who look at the field of 2020 candidates – which includes a number of women and minorities – and see “the white guys are all polling up at the top.”

    […]

    “I don’t think anyone’s identity should hold them back, but I think the next president should see all races, all identities,” he said in a clip from an interview with MSNBC’s “All In” that he included with his tweet. “And I would put forward policies that would make sure that inherent bias that exists, or discrimination that exists, in communities would be eliminated.”

    He vowed to “make sure that everyone, everywhere has opportunities.”

    It’s interesting Swalwell feigns respect for diversity and says a person’s “identity should not hold them back”, that he will “pass the mic” to his female VP pick when you consider his snide refusal last week to debate NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch.

    Loesch called him out for his blatant sexism, noting that he was willing to debate a man, but not her:

    If he truly respected women with diverse opinions, he would answer Loesch. But he’s a flaming hypocrite who puts style over substance, and values earning cheap Democratic street cred over legit policy debates on hot button issues.

    What a clown show he is. An absolute clown show.
