GOP rival Beth Lindstrom calls on Elizabeth Warren to apologize for ‘racist’ justice-system jab
By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times - Monday, August 6, 2018
Republican Senate hopeful Beth Lindstrom called Monday on Sen. Elizabeth Warren to apologize for denouncing the U.S. criminal-justice system as “racist … front to back.” . . .
. . . She referred to Ms. Warren’s comments Friday at Netroots Nation, an annual left-wing gathering, where the Democratic senator appeared as part of a session at Dillard University in New Orleans.
“Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system,” Ms. Warren said. “It’s racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back. We’re talking about the front end on what you declare to be illegal; on how you enforce it, on who gets arrested.” . . .
I recently heard an ex-abortion mill director talking about divisive political issues.
She pointed out many of the politicians LOVE THEM.
Because it is easy to fund-raise on these divisive issues.
I am not suggesting ONLY liberal politicians do this by the way.
(Yet another argument for term limits in my opinion)
Also from the same article . . .
“Words like this are polarizing and divisive: completely used for personal political gain for 2020, without regard for how they sound to the many good people in Massachusetts and around the country who are punishing criminals, keeping us safe and administering justice,” Ms. Lindstrom said.
Others pointed out that until recently, the Justice Department was headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who succeeded Eric Holder during the Obama administration. Both are black.
“You think you have a tough job this morning? Imagine being the guy who has to organize ‘Cops for Warren 2020’ in a year or so,” said National Review’s Jim Geraghty. . . .
It is my understanding that the politicians can keep adding to their campaign “war chest”, and have laws set up for themselves, so that when they eventually retire, they can TAKE the money tax-free for personal gain.
Perhaps others here can verify or debunk this?
