‘I Stand with Cory’ petition launched in response to Cory Booker backlash

As Twitchy reported, yesterday on Meet The Press Cory Booker made the oh-so-awful mistake of telling the truth and denouncing attacks on Bain Capital as “crap” and “nauseating.” Predictably and reprehensibly, the backlash from the Left was immediate and vile. They followed up today by also spewing hate-filled garbage at Harold Ford, who agreed with Mayor Booker.

Mayor Booker was forced to “clarify” his remarks in a video, since heavily edited by Team Obama, that some likened to a hostage video. Do not cross the Lefty regime! As a result, the #freecorybooker hashtag was born and now a petition to stand with Cory Booker.

RT @GOP: #IStandwithCory– sign the petition, don’t let Obama attack free enterprise: http://t.co/3eel1JFh #tcot #2012

Media missing the point, as always.

If/when @CoryBooker runs for president, will the RNC still be standing with Cory?

It’s not about whether or not the GOP agrees with Mayor Booker on absolutely everything. Of course they don’t; he is a Democrat after all, and that party and its agenda are detrimental to the country. But, this is about how the Left uses totalitarian tactics and how dissent is punishable always. One must walk in lock-step or the thought police will make one pay.

Twitter explains it to the comprehension-challenged media.

Help free @CoryBooker from thought-detention https://t.co/xx5xe7oz #IStandWithCory

Cory Booker just learned that totalitarianism is not a subtle philosophy.

Republicans like Chris Christie won't be able to rescue Booker. He'll have to tunnel out of Democrat prison with a hammer and sickle.

@TwitchyTeam @CoryBooker Ah yes the WH thought police have gone after Corey, not cool totally not cool #tcot

I see the thought police have surround Cory Booker's home. He has time to reevaluate the term "Free Country" and choose to fight for it.

Corey Booker is learning what happens when you stray from the herd of the open-minded.

I'd like to thank the liberal hatemongers of Twitter for doing more than I ever could to show Cory Booker he's in the wrong Party.

— John Hayward (@Doc_0) May 21, 2012

Indeed. And whether or not he remains in the wrong party, the GOP will stand up for not just the free market, but the free marketplace of ideas. They will stand against those who seek to quash free thinking and will support those who are punished for speaking their own minds.

48 hours ago, Cory Booker was an Obama campaign surrogate. Now he's a surrogate for dissenters everywhere.
