“The founders were imperfect geniuses,” he said. “They wrote a lot of our bigotries into (the Constitution) . . . if you think about how we have overcome those things, it’s always been by creating, first, calls to consciousness, speaking truth about the injustices, and then bringing together those uncommon coalitions.”

Booker added: “We are a nation of conscience, and I found partners on the other side of the aisle who agree with me on these issues. And we can build from there. In fact, when I first came to the Senate, people laughed. I had people telling me, ‘There’s no way you’re going to get a comprehensive criminal justice reform bill done.'”

The Washington Free Beacon noted it was unclear what Booker was specifically referring to when he used the term “bigotries.” A Free Beacon request for comment was not immediately returned.

  1. I would like to see this fool go home to Africa and see how well he does. Don’t bash the country that gives you all the freedoms you wouldn’t have if your ancestors were not sold as slaves by your black brothers.

    • Precisely! Cory Booker is truly one of the worst racist in this country. Fact is, that his relatives in Africa are still being sold into slavery by their own. Why doesn’t he have his shorts in a knot over that? The profound ignorance and lack of historical reference these people like him have are mind-blowing.

  2. The Constitution has served our country well since it’s inception. Corry Booker is a punk. He has reached the acme in his political life. Being in the New Jersey pit is exactly where he belongs.

  3. Let’s take a closer look at this presidential candidate who violated Senate rules in his “Spartacus Moment” during the Kavanaugh hearing that “he groped an underage girl then fucked her”…we also know that he was accused of exposing himself in a men’s room to an admitted gay man—so if you want another Clinton type pervert in the Oval Office, a suspicious unmarried man with underdeveloped sexual issues then vote for this FAGGOT! And if this is too unkind…then vote for this man with a twisted mind and live with the consequences…

  4. Population density is measured by the number of people per square mile. New Jersey has the most people per square mile of any U.S. state. New Jersey also elected Cory Booker as its U.S. senator. That reaffirms New Jersey’s status as the state with the densest population.

    • Hey, I resemble that remark! I’ve lived in New Jersey for 64 years and have watched it degenerate into the garbage pile it now is because of the Demoncrats gerrymandering all of the legislative districts to their favor, based on the alleged “census”. We have many conservative towns now linked to inner city neighborhoods as part of the re-districting in our state. We fought like hell to stop it, but the Democrats somehow maintained their offices and now we’re all being screwed over. Just the mere fact Booker was under Fed. investigation for thievery, corruption and extortion while Mayor of Newark (NJs largest city), and he quit being Mayor and ran for and got elected U.S. Senator shows you the corruption in the Demoncrat Party. Same goes for Senator Menendez. Many politicians from out of state have been dissuaded from coming to New Jersey to support candidates because they’re being told that “the dirt will rub off on them”.

  5. Funny he is part of the Democrat Party, the one who wanted Slavery to last forever, imagine Cory in his White Rob and Coned Hat!!! For, Democrats were the Party which created the Hate Group called the “KKK” and now Democrats blame the Republican Party for what they did, in fact its a Democrat Motto always blame other for what we did!!!! Now, Cory reads racist bigotry into the Constitution, supporting how Democrats want Illegals to pour into our Country and give the the right to vote, rolling out the Red Carpet to them in California, giving the Illegal Welfare, Food Stamps, Medicaid, and Housing, giving them a Driver’s license while registering them to vote, even go as far to teach them to apply for business grants which they never have to pay back. “While Citizens never get those kind of Grants” One can see Citizens living tents in California, veterans with no homes, while Illegals get their benefits and the illegals are treated like Royalty! Over 76,000 Illegals have already jumped our border this years already! Yet, Cory says this is Manufactured, with Senator Richard L. Blumenthal tells us Illegals are crossing in Historic Low numbers. We all know Blumenthal is one Big Lair, telling of his Soldier Days in Vietnam. But Richard never serve one day in Vietnam???
    Now we have the New House controlled by Democrats (Voter Fraud) 1. The Dead Voted 2. Illegals Voted 3. Provisional Ballot Boxes show up out of thin air? 4. Votes processed by Harvesting them! Funny, How a Republican won during the regular election only to lose days later when Provisional Ballots were counted? Come on People, look at the anti-constitutional bills being written by this Democrat Congress. Cp123 has a Point! Indeed, he or she does, for Cory has rewritten History and they true facts are A. Black Muslims established the slave markets around the World with the help of the Spanish who had the largest Fleet of Ships in the World, Thomas Jefferson warned us about these Black Muslims who were the First slave owners in America and sold them here in our Country, even to day Black Muslims in Northern Africa are still selling slaves, and nothing is being done about it, or is it Racism, or the Islamic way of life? If Obama’s Poor Widows and Orphans are fleeing War for a better way of life, which is One big Lie!
    Obama stood and told the World he was only bringing 10,000 here! Think People!!! These Radical Islamic Refugees are coming Terrorist mixed in with them. The UN is telling all of it’s members to take them in by the Millions. These people are not fleeing for freedom and a better way of life for the Hadith in the Holy Quran tells them to go west. Tells them not to work and to use up Infidels social funds then kill them. Today, we see Grown Up Men bring in 4 wives and all their children, Obama well funded them giving these families $400 each Month for each Child they have. These Radical Islamic Muslims do not work, they get welfare, medicaid, food stamps, free housing, they refuse to assimilate to the American way of life, they demand special foods, and the Country of Saudi Arabia, pays for Mosque to be built for them, just to keep them out of their Country. Yes, Even Nancy Pelosi Changed the Dress Code for Congress for her Muslim Members for their Religion of Islam, but if a Christian asked for this Nancy would have scream “separation of church and state” Democrats support every thing anti American. They already proved that with wanting to give Illegals the vote. Tearing down the wall, wanting them to pour into our Country * like Fire Ants *! Socialism is their battle cry..

    • Historically true…thank you for showing the real historical value is……the Demo’s are using any thing to get votes from the uneducated and those who can not think for themselves..

  6. He is just another stupid lefty that wants to judge our history by reflection and analysis through a 21st century lens. We did have warts when our Constitution was written. We have since cured them through amendments to our Constitution and couched into law prohibitions against desperate treatment of people based on immutable characteristics.

  7. Why doesn’t he do a complete in-depth article on the subject matter and show us in the US CONSTITUTUION what he is talking about…..SO US….THAT’S ALL IT TAKES FOR US TO UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM….

  8. Sen. Booker Crying about our Constitution Crying about Double Standard in the Laws , here’s a guy who admitted to violating Senate rules for releasing confidential materials, the rules state he should be subject to expulsion from the Senate; Willfully Violating Senate Rules, And Spartacus gets A Pass Talk about Double Standard. And now he wants to run for President GOD HELP US!!!!!!!!!
