Sen. Cory Booker’s campaign has a brilliant idea on how to defeat President Donald Trump — just prevent him from campaigning.
Of course, the New Jersey Democrat may want to concentrate more on emerging as his party’s nominee before worrying about going head-to-head with the president.
Erin Turmelle, the New Hampshire campaign director for Booker called for Trump to cancel an upcoming rally there, saying these events “serve as a breeding ground for racism and bigotry” and have no place anywhere in the country.
On Tuesday Turmelle tweeted: “Two days before [Booker] returns to NH, Donald Trump is planning to hold a rally in Manchester. These rallies serve as a breeding ground for racism and bigotry that inspire white nationalist attacks like the one in El Paso on Saturday.
“They are despicable and have no place in New Hampshire, or anywhere in our country. That’s why Trump must cancel this rally.”

This being a furtherance of the Democrats’ “white supremacy terrorism” narrative, a convenient tactic that allows them to hang the El Paso shooting on Trump, who they insist is a closet white supremacist — they endeavor to look past the Dayton shooter, a self-described “leftist” who favored Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for president.
Turmelle released a statement, claiming that Trump rallies are a threat to the safety of Americans — this coming as Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Democrat from Texas, tweeted out a “target list” of Trump donors in his city of San Antonio.
“What’s overwhelmingly clear is that Trump coming to New Hampshire will only stoke further dangerous acts and threaten Americans’ safety,” Turmelle said in the release.

Booker’s communications director in New Hampshire, Chris Moyer, also called for Trump’s Manchester rally to be cancelled.
“Trump rallies are vile, full of hate and bigotry that rev up racists and inspire dangerous acts. Trump is holding a rally in Manchester next week. Why do we play along like this is just another political event?” Moyer tweeted.

But this is what progressive Democrats do. They hijack language to assign their own meaning to words, and then use those words to silence debate and shut down anyone who does not adhere to their political ideology.
White supremacy and white nationalism were terms that never made the news cycle when President Barack Obama, the first black president in U.S. history, was in office.
As has been stated online, the problem with the focus on white supremacy is that the label is hung on anyone who is not a Democrat.
There seems to be some confusion among the right wing about whether I believe that all Trump supporters are culpable in the white nationalist terrorism he’s inspired. Let me just clear this up. YES. ALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE CULPABLE. If you support a racist you are a racist. End.

As for New Hampshire, Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to have swept the state, as New Hampshire Democratic National Committeewoman Kathy Sullivan was in full agreement with Turmelle.
“Good for [Turmelle] – Donald Trump’s white nationalism has no place in our diverse, welcoming city of #MHT. And if [Gov. Chris Sununu] had the sense he was born with, he would tell Donald Trump his toxicity is not welcome in NH.”

This being another tactic of the left, telling Trump he is not welcome in areas — only to see tens of thousands of supporters show up everywhere he goes.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:

And this is why the Demorats in control scare me to death. They want to silence everyone the do not agree with and will use whatever tactics they have at hand. Imagine them in complete control, they would silence everyone while they pillage our country.

Do you hear yourselves? This is hate and bigotry. ? It’s seems to be all people on the left have to offer anymore. At least when they can calm down long enough to string words together that is.
