One of the co-founders of Vice Media attacked New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D) for his impassioned questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Nielson on Tuesday, calling the lawmaker “Sambo,” and saying he was performing for white people.
In a video posted to YouTube by CRTV — and flagged by Right Wing Watch — controversial commentator Gavin McInnes used inflammatory language to describe the black Democrat.
McInnes was addressing Booker’s relentless pursuit of answers from the DHS secretary over President Donald Trump’s comments about Haiti and African nations — calling them “sh*tholes” — which riled up conservatives who believe the Democrat was bullying her.
According to McInnes, Booker’s questioning was all for show.
“I just realized something. Cory Booker is kind of like Sambo. He’s kind of shucking and jiving for the white man. Cory Booker grew up rich in an all-white suburb. He’s basically a white guy. His parents were very wealthy executives at IBM,” McInnes stated. “But he wants to be a black dude, so he pretends that he’s down with the brothers and he acts outraged about racism all the time—for white people. That gets him votes from whites.”
McInnes included ex-President Barack Obama in his attack
“Yes, he gets the black vote. Anyone black gets the black vote,” he asserted. “Obama was the least black man I’ve ever seen in my life and he got all the black vote. But what these guys are really trying to get is white votes because that’s the majority of people in this country. If you’re in Japan, you want Japanese votes,”
“And so he plays up the race card again and again, and what a disappointment to his parents. They didn’t play the race card, they just busted their asses and made tons and tons of money. What does he do? He just gets up there and performs for the white man pretending to be from the hood,” he said of the former Newark mayor who ascended to the U.S. Senate in 2013.
