Why? Because he’s from Alabama? Because he was named for a Confederate hero? No. Those are just their excuses. They just don’t want a conservative to be Attorney General.
Just look at how racist Sen. Sessions has been in the past:
Jeff Sessions is going to be the next Attorney General of the United States. The Senate Democrats, having scrapped the filibuster on nominations, have no way to stop him. Will these pictures stop him?
They show Jeff Sessions marching in the streets with… wait for it … no seriously, wait for it… civil rights icon John Lewis.
That’s right. The media wants you to think Jeff Sessions is some sort of Alabamian unrepentant racist, but in fact Jeff Sessions has a long history of fighting segregation in Alabama, seeking the death penalty for KKK members, and marching with civil rights leaders to commemorate and honor the 50th anniversary of the march at Selma.”
Of course. He’s a Republican. It has been Republicans who have supported equality for blacks. It has been Democrats who have opposed it.
