From the Boy Scouts to the Knights of Columbus, it’s open season on anything that doesn’t fit the cracked new world of socialism and sexual anarchy that “progressives” are fashioning for us all.
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and California Sen. Kamala Harris are in the running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. They are writing off a significant portion of the Catholic vote even before their campaigns get underway.
That was evident in September, when they joined other Democrats in attacking U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a devout Catholic. The now-notorious Senate hearings were marked by shrieking protesters who echoed the Democrats’ unsubstantiated allegations of sexual assault. Cory “Spartacus” Booker and Kamala Harris were in the thick of it.
Now, they’re railing against a nominee for the federal bench who committed the crime of being a member of the Knights of Columbus.
In October, President Trump named Omaha-based lawyer Brian Buescher to sit on the U.S. District Court in Nebraska. The main point of contention is his membership in the Knights.
A men’s social club founded in 1882 to aid newly arrived European immigrants to America, the Knights donate $200 million annually to charities from their 15,000 chapters in 12 countries. With 2 million members worldwide, the Knights have chapters all over the United States and are a fixture in public events such as Independence Day parades. They epitomize the charitable spirit that offers hope to so many.
