Who Are the Radical Haters?

Warren’s baseless accusations against Sessions, but it’s a black Republican who suffers.

In a 52-47 vote Wednesday, the Senate confirmed Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as the new attorney general. The vote came after weeks of contentious debate in which Democrats accused Sessions of — what else? — racism. (A white Republican from Alabama. Isn’t it obvious?) Just one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, broke ranks and voted with the Republican majority. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Cherokee Nation), who on Tuesday was silenced by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for continuing to impugn the character of a fellow senator after being warned to cease, publically blasted the vote. She went completely off the reservation when she tweeted, “If Jeff Sessions makes even the tiniest attempt to bring his racism, sexism & bigotry into @TheJusticeDept, he’ll hear from all of us. And you better believe every Senator who voted to put Jeff Sessions’ radical hatred into @TheJusticeDept will hear from all of us, too.” Clearly, Warren didn’t get the message about impugning the character of a fellow senator.

Meanwhile, South Carolina’s black Republican senator, Tim Scott, gave a speech during which he read some of the disgusting hate mail he received for supporting Sessions. Perhaps most starkly, Scott noted that he “left out all the ones that used the n-word,” making his point that the so-called tolerance espoused by the Left is only tolerant of those who agree with them.

Scott is correct — leftists love to spout off about the need for tolerance, but all they truly desire is to silence those who oppose their “social justice” political agenda. Disagreement over policy is understandable, but alleging that your fellow senator’s motivation for disagreement is due to racism, sexism and bigotry is beyond the pale. Warren and her war-whooping sycophants need to look in the mirror and see who are the ones actually engaging in “radical hatred.”
