NJ Senator Cory Booker had himself quite an embarrassing day yesterday, even by democratic standards. First he lied and said he was illegally releasing documents that showed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a racist as an act of defiance. Then it turned out the documents proved Kavanaugh is definitely not racist. Finally, it was revealed that Booker had permission to release the documents all along and his brave act of disobedience was a complete fraud. At some point during this sad publicity stunt Booker referred to him as Spartacus. The latest twist on this hilarious story is that it is now racist to call Corey Booker “Spartacus.”
In the midst of his lie, Booker proclaimed, “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an, ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”
If you don’t know who Spartacus was, he was a slave/gladiator who led a slave revolt against the Roman empire and was eventually put to death. Of all of the crazy shit Booker did yesterday, comparing himself to Spartacus is by far the most insane. He released some documents that he was allowed to releases, which is a long way from a revolt against government oppression.
Because of this, the Republican National Committee has come up with an appropriate new nickname for Booker:
RNC just sent out a blast email dubbing Cory Booker “Spartacus of Newark”

Funny? Definitely. Did he bring it on himself? You betcha. Racist? Well, at least whacko liberal thinks so.
Molly Jong-Fast is a radical feminist Trump-hater and as a white liberal she sees racism all over this:
I always look to the RNC for the most racist hot takes. Bravo team of racist idiots, you’re racist. https://t.co/im9XsLq4us

Cory Booker literally called himself Spartacus. Does that make Booker racist as well? I guess we are at the point where it’s racist to call someone a non-racist name that he has called himself. That is to say, racism is a meaningless term.
In related news, Republican Senator Marco Rubio got in on the fun with this hilarious tweet:
On this day in 71B.C. the Thracian gladiator Spartacus was put to death by Marcus Licinius Crassus for disclosing confidential scrolls. When informed days later that in fact the Roman Senate had already publicly released the scrolls, Crassus replied “Oh, ok, my bad”.

I supposed Rubio is also racist now too. Too bad, because that was pretty damn funny.
Cory Booker is definitely running for president and his “I am Spartacus” moment was his candidacy announcement. He’s hoping to capture some of that Obama magic where all criticism is considered racist and it looks like he’s got it. He’s about ten-times worse than Obama so he’s really going to need the race card to deflect from all of his bullshit and stupidity.
