Sen. Booker: Planned Parenthood Supporters Like WWII Soldiers (VIDEO)

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker thinks Planned Parenthood supporters are like the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy during World War II.

The Democratic Senator was at Tuesday’s “People’s Filibuster” event against the GOP health bill when he claimed the fight for health care can be compared to other major fights in history, like WWII and the civil rights movement.

The rally included Planned Parenthood, the Center for America Progress, and the American Federation of Teachers.

“We may not be called to storm the beaches in Normandy, that was not our time,” he said. “We may not be called to stand with Sojourner Truth and utter these words, ‘I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.’”

“We may not be called to stand in the slums with Irish immigrants who fought for labor rights we now take for granted,” he continued. “Those were not our days. But today is our day!”


“History is now calling upon us to stand in this moral moment and to tell this nation, ‘We have come a mighty long way, but we have got a long way to go.’”

Booker then urged the crowd of women in pink hats to “summon the strength” of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Cesar Chavez, and Harvey Milk.

    Booker is a shameless tool who doesn’t listen to himself as the words fall out of his mouth! Don’t disgrace my father and his fellow CHRISTIAN WWII soldiers many of whom brought home purple hearts and bronze stars.

    Booker is an embarrassment to us all.

    This asswhole should talk to a Vet who was there or at least watch the landing on Omaha Beach from “Saving Private Ryan”. He’d pee his diaper. His statement is one of the most dumazzed statements in the history of all dumazzed statements.

    ‘…are like the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy.’

    As I recall from history, it was the soldiers who got their arms taken off and their guts emptied in the wash. In this case, it’s not the PP ‘soldiers’ as Cory calls them, it’s the babies that get their arms torn off and their faces dissected while their little hearts still beat.

    How utterly apt, Cory. /sarc/
