Senate Judiciary Committee Member John Kennedy (R-LA) spoke out this week to slam Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), arguing that she has “contempt” for both law enforcement and America as a nation.
Kennedy told Fox News that he knew President Joe Biden was “left of center” but never envisioned the Delawarean to be “left of [Soviet leader Vladimir] Lenin.”
“I’m disappointed in President Biden. He has encouraged this. I listened to him last night. He knows better,” the Republican senator said. “No one can get to be his age with his experience and not know this is nonsense… It’s hurting America and it’s hurting people.”
Kennedy then blasted Ocasio-Cortez for saying that Derek Chauvin being found guilty of George Floyd’s death “isn’t justice” and that justice is “a government that does not value military and armaments more than it values health care, education and housing.”
“Sandy Cortez of Boston University; defining ‘Justice’ for America,” said host Tucker Carlson before asking Kennedy for his response.
“I’m listening to the congresswoman and I’m thinking, no disrespect, but how does anyone get to be her age and believe that drivel?” Kennedy asked. “No fair-minded person believes that cops, many of whom are racial minorities, get up every day and go to work hoping for the opportunity to be able to hurt someone — but the Wokeristas like the congresswoman, they really believe it. They really do hate cops just because they’re cops.”
Not stopping there, Kennedy said that Democrats’ vision of a nation without police would result in the U.S. becoming “a fantastic impression of Hell.”
“The Wokeristas really do believe that when a cop shoots a criminal, it is always, every single time the cops fault but when a criminal shoots a cop, it’s always, every single time, the gun’s fault,” he continued.
As for what he described as the incompetence of that worldview, Kennedy said that “Jellyfish have survived 650 million years without a brain, so there is hope for them.”
