Democrats are once again dialing up their outrage to ten. Can a single day go by without this happening? In this case, Cory Booker of New Jersey is using the word “evil” to describe anyone who would support Trump’s new pick for the Supreme Court.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Booker: Senators Who Support Kavanaugh Are ‘Complicit in the Evil’
Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) voiced his opposition Tuesday to President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by saying that any senator who didn’t oppose his confirmation is complicit in evil.
Booker spoke at a press conference alongside Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and religious leaders to talk about their opposition to Kavanaugh, adding that the press conference had “nothing to do with politics”
“I’m here to call on folks to understand that in a moral moment, there is no ‘neutral.’ In a moral moment, there is no ‘bystanders,'” Booker said. “You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it.”
Booker then invoked a scriptural passage, from Psalm 23, saying, “Yea, though we [sic] walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” He went on to say that the United States is currently walking through the valley of the shadow of death and that the Bible doesn’t talk about people sitting or watching on the sidelines in the valley of the shadow of death.
