Confirmation hearings are under way for Trump’s nominee Jeff Sessions. If confirmed, he will be the Attorney General. Because the party of hypocrites and racists control the Senate, he will likely be confirmed. This is another travesty for the American people. He is not only unfit, he is also a white supremacist from the bigoted state of Alabama.
Thirty years ago, Sessions was under consideration for a federal judgeship. After the hearings were conducted, he was refused the position based on charges of racism.
During yesterday’s hearings, Senator Elizabeth Warren offered the truth on the Senate floor about this old, white man’s prejudice, and she was halted mid-sentence by Senate Majority Leader, and fellow white supremacist, Mitch McConnell.
During Ms. Warren’s arguments against Session’s nomination, she read part of a letter from Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow, Coretta Scott King, thirty years ago.
“Mr. Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens,” King wrote.
McConnell proceeded to interrupt Ms. Warren in defense of his fellow racist.
“The senator has impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama,” McConnell said, then setting up a series of roll-call votes on Warren’s conduct.
When did the truth become a crime? The answer is a simple fact, when Republicans gained control of our government. From Trump down to a city councilman who is a Republican, lies are the norm rather than facts.
Whenever an issue such as this occurs in the Senate, McConnell is behind it; he is always the villain. McConnell’s history proves that he is a traitor to our Constitution. From 2009, when he promised that Republicans would do nothing with the exception of insuring that President Obama was a one-term president, based solely on the fact that he was of African American descent, until today when he squelched the truth to protect his bother in white supremacy, he has proven that he is completely unfit to be a United States senator.
McConnell denounced Trump prior to his nomination. After his illegitimate election, McConnell became his best friend. He is a hypocrite of the highest magnitude; a man who because he places the welfare of his party ahead of the welfare of our nation’s people can be labeled a traitor.
Time for real change, my fellow Americans. Old, white racists such as McConnell and Sessions must be removed from public office. They are haters of the America of our founding fathers, and therefore the Constitution.
Join the revolution; join the planned march on April 1st. “Fire the Fool” will be held in Washington, and support protests will occur around the world.
Protest our new and immoral leader, his circle of sinners, and all Republicans. After the protest, become an activist. Most importantly get the vote out in November, 2018. Vote against all Republicans who have capitulated to their illegitimate president.
Trump must go; democracy must be returned to America. White supremacists must not be allowed to soil our sacred Capitol Building.
