Katie Pavlich notices that Sen. Cory Booker doesn’t want to talk about violence in Chicago

Trump’s attorney general pick William Barr is still being grilled by senators, and the usual suspects are doing their best to grandstand (for example, Mazie Hirono is going the sexual harassment route).

Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker came prepared to grill Barr on incarceration rates, and he’d done his homework.

William Barr *literally* wrote & published a book called "The Case for More Incarceration" while leading the Department of Justice. Found a copy in a law library. It's real.

Today is the confirmation hearing on William Barr, Trump's pick for AG. I have objections. Take for example, this awful claim from Barr:“The benefits of increased incarceration would be enjoyed disproportionately by black Americans living in inner cities.”

Absolutely not. ❌

At one point Barr brought up the crime rate in Chicago, which did not please Booker, who warned Barr to be careful about the language he used regarding Chicago, as it raised a lot of “racial fears or racial concerns.”

.@CoryBooker tells Barr: "When you talk about Chicago in the way you just did [saying it's okay to lock up people for drug offenses], it brings up racial fears or racial concerns."

Barr says he thinks that "overall, the system is working." pic.twitter.com/IMv8aKgMAC

Whoa. @CoryBooker at Barr just now: "I think it's very important that you… understand the implications for the language you're using which brings up the language of race. When you talk about Chicago in the way you just did, it brings up racial fears or racial concerns "

Well well, Booker doesn't want to talk about violence in Chicago

Doesn’t seem like it; not after pulling the race card like that.

I caught that too.

I'm surprised, NOT.

With Chicago’s track record would you?

Booker has said "no personal experiences", but wastes his 10' continually going back to his own.

Q: Why would Barr commission ANOTHER black incarceration study (on their inner city crimes) if @SenBooker repeatedly, already cites from data/statistics from his several sources?

— Shrek™ 🌨 (@shreksshrek) January 15, 2019

We’ve heard that his friend T-Bone shared lots of his personal experiences with Booker.

.@SenBooker wraps up by admitting he's the only US Senator that lives in a "low income" inner city. 'I had shootings in my neighborhood'.

Fascinating REPresentation of the gang members he's trying to help keep out of jail. 🤔 https://t.co/3IKJ0D3LzN

Booker knows no other topic but racial injustice!!!!

It’s racist to talk about violence in Chicago apparently, I guess it’s racist to care about black people being killed in record numbers.

@CoryBooker is upset that NJ is getting beat in the violence department by Chicago. I guess he just needs few more bad policies and gun laws to make it happen @SenateDems @SenateGOP @HouseDemocrats @cnnbrk @MSNBC @jaketapper @mitchellreports @business

— Sam (@NonEchoChamber) January 15, 2019

Of course not..he’s grandstanding as usual

— Anthony (@firecracker459) January 15, 2019

He's not really asking questions as usual. Just making a statement, one lonnnnng continuous statement.

— Craig (@ryderdrumr) January 15, 2019

No @TheDemocrats do. They just want to ignore it and sweep it under the rug like nothing is happening. A very similar situation happening with the border and illegal immigration. 🤔

— AJ (@AK_ND9) January 15, 2019

Of course not… The corrupt politicians like him just sit back and watch other people kill other people… These people are so obsessed with their power and position and money that nothing else matters to them. 🔰

I can’t believe Mr. Magoo actually thinks he will get votes for the Presidency!🤒🤒🤒

I was waiting for the Spartacus helmet to come out from under the desk at any time.

But isn’t “over-incarceration” a serious problem? Here’s someone not imaginary to whom Booker might want to talk:

Blacks in Chicago would enjoy increased incarceration, by taking hoodlums from their communities.
