Rep. Jim Clyburn statement on Barr’s slavery comments

Rep. Jim Clyburn(D-SC 6th District) has issued a statement after Attorney General William Barr compared stay-at-home orders issued by governors to mitigate the spread of coronavirus to slavery.

Read his statement below:

Attorney General Barr is in need of a history lesson if he thinks coronavirus lockdowns are a violation against civil liberties comparable to slavery.

It is incredibly reckless for the chief law enforcement officer to compare slavery to life-saving advice from health experts.
