Cory Booker: Paying higher taxes is patriotic!

http://twitter.com/#!/jamestaranto/status/243108121503997953

Just when you thought the once-respectable Newark mayor couldn’t possibly sell himself out to Team Obama any more, tonight in his address to the Democratic National Convention, Cory Booker dug his heels even deeper into the muck. Booker proudly proclaimed — or, rather, yelled — that “being asked to pay your fair share isnt class warfare; it’s patriotism!”

The audience of rapt Julias erupted in applause and chants of “USA! USA!” Of course. We’d expect nothing more.

Newark mayor Cory Booker: "Being asked to pay your fair share isn't class warfare, it's patriotism." Crowd chants, "U-S-A!" #dnc2012

To the Left, class warfare is patriotism, see?

It’s a wonder the convention facilities didn’t flood, what with all the drooling:

Cory Booker "paying your far share is patriotic, not class warfare" #DNC2012 http://t.co/lmxD6TJs

"Asking to pay your fair share during a war isn't class warfare. It's patriotism." -Cory Booker, the future of the Democratic Party.

— Zach McClelland (@Zach_McClelland) September 4, 2012

The future? Sorry, kiddo. But this is happening now. And it’s downright scary.

Conservatives were not amused:

Cory Booker shouting liberal mantra that it's patriotic to pay taxes. #DNC2012

— Heidi Phillips (@yoginiha) September 4, 2012

Cory Booker with this "fair share" nonsense. The top 1% in this country pay 37% of all federal income tax paid. That not enough?

"Paying your fair share is not class warfare. It is patriotism." – Cory Booker. It was class warfare according to Karl Marx. #tcot

Cory Booker to rich people: pay your fair share, it's not class warfare, but patriotism. Curious if he knows how much rich pay #DNC2012

— Emily Ekins (@emilyekins) September 4, 2012

LOL – Cory Booker – "The rich paying thier fair share isn't class warfare. It's patriotism." #DNC2012. What an asshat.

— Granite Pundit (@Granite_Pundit) September 4, 2012

Oh good, the Left has rebranded class warfare as "patriotism" #DNC2012

— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) September 4, 2012

France! France! would be more accurate .@KatiePavlich crowd is cheering "USA USA!" after Cory Booker calls for higher taxes…what? #DNC2012

— Lee Wheat (@NumbuhOne) September 4, 2012

Lessons from Cory Booker: "Equality" is better than actual growth & rich people paying their "fair share" will fix the debt. #DNC2012 #tcot

DNC breaks out the "USA-USA-USA" chant in response to….Cory Booker calling for higher taxes. Disgusting.

— DrewMTips (@DrewMTips) September 4, 2012

Disgusting indeed. Attempting to disguise class warfare as patriotism is shameful and pathetic, and it’s a tactic the Left has no qualms about using. Taking that power away is imperative. Remember in November.
