Warren is likely running for president in 2020, and she is trying to rally the embittered left and Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) crowd to her side. And her stunt disparaging now-Attorney General Sessions on the Senate floor, plus her tweet threatening that “If Jeff Sessions makes even the tiniest attempt to bring his racism, sexism & bigotry into @TheJusticeDept, he’ll hear from all of us” is a little much, even allowing for a shallow, pandering candidate’s sad attempts to crowd into the news cycle. Is Warren really the guardian of all that is fair and just and the defender of the oppressed? Since when?
Speaking as a proud Alabamian, trust me when I say that people from the state hate being screamed at about being bigots by someone from Massachusetts. This is nothing new. Anytime the left feels backed into a corner by Republicans or are having trouble defending their own actions, they yell “racism” — especially if their target happens to be a white, Southern, Christian Republican. They go straight to race quicker than you can say “Pocahontas.”
