It’s both comical and abhorrent as to what Democrats think is and is not patriotic.
For example, standing for the flag and supporting America is wrong. And yet, according to 2020 Democrat hopeful Senator Cory Booker (NJ), raising taxes is good.
In fact, handing over more of your paycheck to state and federal government is patriotic.

So, it is clear that Booker doesn’t stand a chance at becoming POTUS. He never really did.
What is also blatantly obvious is that Cory knows zero about America’s history.
Booker learned the hard way that he’s not going to win an argument with Senator Ted Cruz (TX).
The New Jersey liberal applied a highly unconstitutional religious test during a judicial nominee’s confirmation hearing.
From PJ Media:
Booker seized on Rao’s 2008 article opposing the Supreme Court decision Lawrence v. Texas, which decriminalized homosexual activity. He then directly asked her, “Are gay relationships in your opinion immoral?”
Rao: “I am not sure the relevance of that.”
Booker: “Do you think gay relationships are immoral?”
Rao: “I do not.”
Booker: “Do you believe they are a sin?”
Rao: “My personal views on any of these subjects are things I would put to one side.”
Booker: “So you’re not willing to say whether you believe it is sinful for a man — for two men — to be married?”
Booker: “Excuse me?”
Rao: “My response is that these personal views are ones that I would put to one side. Whatever my personal views are on the subject, I would faithfully follow the precedent of the Supreme Court.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slammed Booker for his line of questioning, arguing that questions about what is sinful should be utterly off-limits in confirmation hearings. He cited the Constitution’s ban on a religious test for public office, and declared, “I don’t believe this is a theological court of inquisition.”
Cruz: “The Senate Judiciary Committee should not be a theater for twisting nominees’ records or views, nor should it be an avenue for persecution. We have seen a growing pattern among Senate Democrats of hostility to religious faith. I was deeply troubled a few minutes ago to hear questioning of a nominee asking your personal views on what is sinful. In my view that has no business in this committee.”
Cruz: “We have also seen Senate Democrats attack what they’ve characterized as religious dogma. We have seen Senate Democrats attack nominees for their own personal views on salvation. Article Six of the Constitution says there should be no religious test for any public office.”
Cruz for the win? Easily.
Booker and fellow 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris of California have many things in common, including wanting to implement universal basic income.
What’s that? It is free money.
UBI would give new meaning to the phrase “reckless government spending,” not to mention taxes would spike around the nation.
From Daily Wire:
The plan, largely known as “universal basic income” (UBI) would redistribute money from working Americans to low-income citizens. Harris, who, like Booker, is looking to run for president in 2020, unveiled a plan last month that would give families making less than $100,000 a year up to $500 a month, or $6,000 a year, in tax credits. Individuals making less than $50,000 would get up to $250 a month in tax credits from the government.
It would seem as if Cory needs to start studying the Constitution and what it does and does not allow.
It’s really not that difficult. Just because a Democrat doesn’t agree with something doesn’t mean they have the right to change it.
Booker immediately jumped to conclusions after the initial report on Jussie Smollett said he was attacked by two white men who yelled, “This is MAGA country!”
Booker said Jussie was the victim of a “modern-day lynching.”
The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I'm glad he's safe.
To those in Congress who don't feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention. https://t.co/EwXFxl5f2m

He was forced to backtrack HARD.
He called the attack a "modern day lynching" when the news broke. pic.twitter.com/8Zf8y7vhrv

This is why it’s not smart to make assumptions, ever. Cory, as well as plenty of lefties in Congress and the mainstream media, look like utter fools.
