Democrat Senator Cory Booker says vagina-hat-wearing Planned Parenthood activists are today’s version of the heroes who stormed the beaches in Normandy, France, during World War II.
Booker made the delusional remarks while speaking at the People’s Filibuster event this week protesting the GOP’s proposed repeal of Obamacare.
Pro-abortion activists attended the event, as did Senator Bernie Sanders and other social justice warriors.
Booker urged attendees to prevent the federal government from defunding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood receives about $500 million a year in taxpayer funds.
While the Hyde Amendment prevents federal dollars from being used to pay for abortions, Obamacare provided new avenues for abortion funding and subsidizing. Recent polls show most Americans — even those who are pro-choice — oppose public funding for abortions.
The New Jersey senator compared Planned Parenthood activists to the heroic soldiers who fought in World War II when they stormed Normandy to defeat Hitler:
We may not be called to storm the beach in Normandy. That was not our time … We may not be called to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge with John Lewis and other activists, facing tear gas and billy clubs. Those were not our day.
But today is our day. History is now calling upon us to stand in this moral moment and tell this nation, ‘We have come a mighty long way, but we have a mighty long way to go.’ This is our generation’s great moral moment.
Senate Republicans will try to rally votes, but we will rally the people.

During the invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, Allied forces from the United States, Canada, and Britain stormed the beaches to crush Hitler. While exactly ZERO Planned Parenthood activists have died advocating for free abortions, 209,000 Allied Forces soldiers were killed in the battles at Normandy.
For Cory Booker to marginalize Normandy is so mind-boggling in its insensitivity that words fail to capture its utter stupidity. Not surprisingly, Twitter had a field day smacking Booker down for his inane showboating and reckless remarks.
Delusion taken to a dangerous degree of political propaganda.
Shame on you. The WWII soldiers at Arlington& France rebuke!@CoryBooker

Except the babies in the wombs take the bullet, not the supporters.

What an absolute insult to the real heroes who actually stormed the beach. PP is more like the defenders of that beach.

My dad landed at Utah Beach. Told of pushing bodies out of the water to land. Dad fought to save lives, not butcher innocent children!

My father was at Omaha Beach. This is one of most asinine comments I have ever heard from a politician.

Cory Booker should apologize to all the brave heroes who risked and/or lost their lives so he has the freedom to run his mouth and marginalize their achievements.
