Democratic Senator Cory Booker ripped America during a speech in New Orleans this week, insisting that there is something "savagely wrong in this country."
"We say an oath that we are a nation of liberty and justice for all, but that’s just words," Booker said while speaking at Netroots Nation in New Orleans. "It’s a civic faith, but I’m one of these people that says before you tell me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people."
"Well, how are we living our civic gospel?" Booker continued. "How are we living our civic gospel that demands for us to reject the normalcy of injustice, the normalcy of apathy, the normalcy of indifference, and rise to the higher ground of activism, of engagement of love?"
"I’m a big believer that if America, if this country hasn’t broken your heart, then you don’t love her enough," Booker stated. "Because there’s things that are savagely wrong in this country. There’s a normalcy of injustice that we’ve accepted. And I tell you, Newark has gifted me a wisdom that can only come from moons, a sense of purpose that can only come from shared pain."
Recently, Booker called supporters of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, "complicit in evil."
