I hate to also have to defend Jeff Sessions, but that was clearly a joke and liberals needed to quit harping on it.

Yeah he was joking

In reality cannabis would never be a deal breaker.

Also how is that joke funny.

Imagine Obama or RFK saying it. It doesn't make much sense coming from a non-racist person does it?

Also where there's smoke there's fire.

Correta Scott King wrote this about Sessions...


https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...arren-silenced

So why the hell are you defending Sessions at all?

I actually think it does and I can picture it. It’s not a knee slapper, but it’s textbook sarcasm.

I’m defending this joke, because I think it’s a non-issue and a distraction from the other things about him that I actually find troubling, so I’d appreciate it if you’d drop the holier-than-thou attitude.

The article does mention that Anglo-american is something used in the legal jargon.

That said, you will pardon me if I don't give Beuragard the benefit of the doubt.

Well considering Sessions is evil, I'm not dropping anything but knowledge

"Anglo-american law" is another term for Common Law.

https://www.britannica.com/topic/common-law

And its not racist to acknowledge that some important good things in our society came from England and from Anglo-American culture and society. It's not even racist to be proud of that.

Okay sure...

When coming from a cultural anthropologist or a historian who doesn't have a history of racism and isn't speaking to a group that's under heavy scrutiny for racist practices.

But that's not the case.

Session's has a long history of racism and fighting justice reforms so the chances of this being a white nationalist dog whistle and not a random factoid goes up 800%.

How is this debateable?

And here's the quote:

“I want to thank every sheriff in America. Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people’s protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people through the elected process,” Sessions said. “The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.”

He's not simply using Anglo American as a synonym for common law.

But we can keep ignoring his past and consistent history of white nationalist dog whistles from the Trump administration and give Sessions a clean slate and benefit of the doubt for some dumb reason.

Shouldn't Session's pretty intense prosecution of a KKK guy be enough to say he's not sympathetic toward them?

It seems fair to say he grew up around these people and even associated with a few of them in his youth (pretty much everyone from that part of the country did at one time or another, Bubba Clinton included), but it seems reaching to say he's got affinity for them.

You're assuming people are uninformed.

Sessions grilled why the FBI is investigating "black extremist" more than any far right hate group...

https://www.google.com/amp/abcnews.g...%3fid=51152034


Then Sessions attacks affirmative action helping blacks go to Ivy League schools cause that's what the DOJ should focus on, making sure there are fewer blacks represented at Ivy League schools.

Also Sessions is rolling back criminal justice reforms aimed at making the system fairer to minorities but I'm sure that's just him being "traditional".

Are saying casual racist vs card carrying racist.

Cause there's a pretty large group of closet racist who aren't casually racist.

Bingo. Regardless of whether he attends meetings wearing a white sheet or not, one doesn't have to look any farther than his actions in the justice department to see how racist he truly is.

And one of the reasons the KKK wear hoods is so they could return to their jobs as prosecuters, judges, cops, politicians, etc.

Racists using institutions to intentionally hurt minorities is nothing new.

Now the hoods are coming off and this is done blatantly.

I'm not sure why we have to play the "Sessions might not be a good ole boy racist" game.

Well, aaaah say, how dare you boys demean the good name of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and insinuate that our totally not racist attorney general has given yet another shout out to his white supremacist base! I demand satisfaction! Pistols at dawn!

So wait, what? He stuck a KKK dude with the death penalty, but he's still "yay KKK"?



There are plenty of issues with Session's tenure so far, and even going as far as to say they're harming black folks seems...reasonable. "He's a prosecutor in a hood" though? C'mon now.

In 1986, Figures testified before the Senate that while it was “literally true” that Sessions had not “obstructed the investigation of the murder of Michael Donald,” Sessions had “tried to persuade me to discontinue pursuit of the case.” Figures said that Sessions “remarked, with regard to the investigation, that the case was a waste of time, that it wasn’t going anywhere, that I should spend more time on other things, and that, if the perpetrators were found, I would not be assigned to the case.” Figures told the Senate that after the case went to the grand jury, and it “became increasingly apparent that we were going to break the case, Mr. Sessions attitude changed” and that he supported the prosecution.

Meanwhile, more and more comes out about Trump's budget, the worse and worse it looks. How do you get the massive increase in spending when you seem to be cutting so many things?

And so many, many terrible ideas, it would be laughable it it weren't too easily believed that there were enough terrible people in Congress all for it.

EDIT: Also, FBI Director Wray directly contradicted Sarah Sander's claims about Porter. Apparently his background check had been completed, and denied security clearance. So, the briefing should be entertaining today.

Yeah, the best part when Vice talked about this was that they don't even know how they are going to get the boxes to the people, nor do the recipients even know what's inside. That's proper prior planning right there.
