ICYMI: Senator Cotton’s Savage Response to Senator Warren's Cries of Racism

Last week Attorney General Bill Barr announced that the Department of Justice would resume enforcing the law regarding the federal death penalty.  As Fox News reported:

The Justice Department said Barr has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to adopt a proposed addendum to the Federal Execution Protocol that will clear the way for the executions. Barr has also directed the bureau of prisons to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates.

“Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people’s representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President,” Barr said in a statement.

He added: “Under administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding.  The Justice Department upholds the rule of law—and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system.”

While Barr is simply upholding the rule of law, predictably the left is reacting hyperbolically.  As Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted:


Regardless of views of the death penalty, Attorney General Barr is simply upholding the rule of law and for that once again liberals are falsely calling a Republican racist.
