(National Sentinel) Identity Politics: For a fake Indian, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., makes a pretty good race-baiter. She did so again in recent days when she took her and her party’s “identity politics” on the road to New Orleans, where she blanketly claimed that our justice system was just plain “racist.”
And then she was called out for it by a “young man of color” at a subsequent political event.
As The Western Journal reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren was called out at a town hall on Thursday for labeling America’s justice system racist.
Earlier this month, the Massachusetts Democrat trashed the justice system, according to The Guardian.
“Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system: it’s racist,” she said, adding that the justice system was flawed “all the way, front to back.”
“Our prison system is something that America should be ashamed of. What we do to other human beings is fundamentally wrong,” she noted further during the question-and-answer session at Dillard University in New Orleans, which was hosted by — of course — the Congressional Black Caucus, one of the most racist on Capitol Hill.
But is it really? At a subsequent event during a town hall in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, a young black man contested Fauxcohontas’ blatant pandering.
“You said that the justice system — and I just want to quote you, so I say it right — is ‘racist from front to back.’ I’m just concerned that your rhetoric there is inciting some of the, like, division that you claim the president is purporting,” said an audience member who identified himself as a “young American of color,” reported The Daily Caller.
He noted further that the American justice system isn’t just administered by white people.
“You say that Donald Trump undermines the justice system, but it highly concerns me that you made a blanket statement that the over 400 federal judges of color, thousands of law enforcement officers of color, and even the new black police commissioner of Boston of color are racist,” he said.
Warren contested that, but weakly.
“This wasn’t about individuals. I didn’t call any individual anything. What I was talking about is a system that has a lot of good people in it … who, by golly, have dedicated their lives to getting out there to try to build a justice that works,” she said.
What a pandering fibber. How do you condemn an entire system of justice as “racist from front to back” and exclude some people who work within it?
Oh, and by the way, Warren later doubled down on her indictment of the entire justice system, according to Masslive.com.
National Review columnist Rich Lowry also took Warren to task, claiming she “lies” about our justice system.
“Now, it’s entirely fair to argue that different rates of offending are a function of the vestiges of racism, and that it is urgent to pursue criminal-justice reform given how the status quo affects black families and communities. But the idea that we are living in a latter-day apartheid South Africa, with a system designed to jail and immiserate blacks out of sheer maliciousness, is contemptible, poisonous, and wrong,” he wrote.
Lowry then tied Warren’s criticism to her bid for the 2020 Democratic Party nomination, which she is likely to seek.
“It is telling that Elizabeth Warren is going there. There are two reasons,” he wrote.
“One is that she has a Bernie Sanders problem: She is (to all appearances) a white politician who has overwhelmingly devoted herself to economic issues. She needs to play identity politics catch up. Two, in reaction to Trump, the Left is embracing a sweeping indictment of America as undemocratic and racist at the core,” he wrote.
“Warren’s performance shows that the party is prepared to consider no critique of America too radical or out of bounds.”
