Booker kicks off 'Justice for All Tour' in Newark
By Tal Axelrod - 04/13/19 03:43 PM EDT

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) kicked off his “Justice for All Tour” Saturday in Newark, a two-week trip that will take the presidential hopeful to Iowa, Georgia and Nevada.

Booker’s first speech in his presidential campaigns’ first nationwide tour highlighted a laundry list of liberal priorities ranging from criminal justice reform to climate change to economic inequality as the New Jersey Democrat seeks to underline his progressive bona fides.

“We’re here today to seek justice. We’re here today because we are impatient for that justice. And our sense of moral urgency, our impatience, comes from the most demanding of all values, it comes from love. Love of our families, love of our communities, love of our country and love of each other,” he said at the speech’s start.

Shout out "I want to see justice in Newark!" to a crowd of Newark denizens,and find yourself facing a empty parking lot and wondering where the hell everybody went.

'Justice for Palestine' protesters interrupt Cory Booker's campaign kickoff speech

NEWARK, N.J. — Cory Booker delivered a message of love and unity at his campaign’s “hometown kickoff” on Saturday, but the New Jersey senator’s speech was interrupted by pro-Palestinian activists shouting “Justice for Palestine.”

The event was the launch of a two-week “Justice for All” tour in the city where he served as mayor from 2006 until 2013. Booker has framed his campaign around an emotional and optimistic pitch to voters. He maintained that tone as he outlined some of his core policies, including lowering the age of Medicare eligibility and establishing a “baby bonds” program to provide low-income children with a nest egg when they reach adulthood.

“We’re here today to seek justice. We’re here today because we are impatient for that justice and our sense of moral urgency, our impatience comes from the most demanding of all values — it comes from love, love of our families, love of our communities, love of our country, and love of each other,” Booker said.

The protesters, who waved Palestinian flags and keffiyehs, turned Booker’s slogan against him when they spoke to Yahoo News later.

“You say ‘Justice For All’ and he named, you know, clean water, housing, affordable health care, freedom but he doesn’t ... talk about Palestine. They’re struggling just as much as us here — even more,” Wajeeh Abushawish, who was part of the group, said. ...

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

A few people I know feel Booker won’t do well after NJ and NYC. He’s very educated and uses a lot of vocabulary words most people wouldn’t know unless they were studying for the SAT’s.
