The Boston Herald on Friday penned an editorial blasting Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) for her repeated attacks on law enforcement.
The editorial board recounted numerous instances Sen. Warren went after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and police officers for enforcing our rule of law.
Specifically, the Herald cited an incident that took place in Boston:
Last year it was ICE she targeted for expulsion, saying that it should be replaced with “something that reflects our morality.” She bellowed to a boisterous Boston City Hall Plaza crowd that, “This is about children held in cages. This is about babies scattered all across this country.”
That screed included incendiary lines about ripping parents from their families, putting children in cages and treating “rape victims and refugees like terrorists.”
Just days later, a Cambridge man offered to pay $500 to anyone who would kill an ICE agent. Law enforcement officers — the same ones Warren derides routinely — apprehended and charged the man.
Unhindered by critical pushback in the media or the reality in the streets that included the tragic murders of two Massachusetts police officers in 2018, Warren forged ahead, exclaiming at a historically black college in August, “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist … I mean front to back.”
According to the newspaper, Warren's "dangerous and false rhetoric" has encouraged violence against law enforcement.
Law enforcement is under assault in this country. Several ICE facilities have been attacked this year. On Wednesday, six Philadelphia police officers were shot in the line of duty during a standoff. Those same police also had to deal with being taunted by some bystanders, who laughed and yelled at them in the midst of the gunfire.
Sen. Warren must stop using dangerous and false rhetoric immediately.
It's nice to see a newspaper in a liberal state stand up for our law enforcement officers. They put their lives on the line every single day to protect each and every one of us. The last thing they need are politicians like Elizabeth Warren trash talking them at every turn.
