To give you possibly the BEST example of the liberals blindly taking their echo chamber opinions and foisting them on the rest of the country.
The latest in the saga of “racism” from the right (hint: none of it is true), is that the left calling Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s new Attorney General, a racist. Their reasoning is that apart from him being a conservative (apparently we’re all racist according to the left), CNN has written an article stating that Sessions is “dogged by old allegations of racism.” You can read that smearing headline right here.
The article states:
Thomas Figures, a black assistant US attorney who worked for Sessions, testified that Sessions called him “boy” on multiple occasions and joked about the Ku Klux Klan, saying that he thought Klan members were “OK, until he learned that they smoked marijuana.”
On why he never spoke up against Sessions’ alleged use of the term, Figures testified: “I felt that if I had said anything or reacted in a manner in which I thought appropriate, I thought I would be fired.”
Sessions angrily denied the allegations at the time. His office did not respond to a recent request for comment.
“I am not a racist, I am not insensitive to blacks. I have supported civil rights activity in my state. I have done my job with integrity, equality, and fairness for all,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He said he detested the Klan, and called the assertion that he made those statements “ludicrous.”
Of course, the left took this and ran with it. These allegations have never been proven true and what’s more, they look even more ridiculous when you find out that Sessions actually helped desegregate Alabama schools and prosecute the KKK!
Democrats and the mainstream media have been relentless with their accusations that Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, President-elect Trump’s choice for attorney general, is a racist.
It’s no surprise they are attempting to smear Sessions, but what is so fascinating about this accusation is the fact that Sessions actually has a record of supporting desegregation in schools as well as taking on the Ku Klux Klan in Alabama.
As a U.S. attorney in the early 1980s, Sessions filed several cases to desegregate schools in Alabama, according to the Washington Times.
He also prosecuted Klansman Henry Francis Hays, son of Alabama Klan leader Bennie Hays, for the abduction and murder of Michael Donald, a black teenager. He even insisted on the death penalty for Hays.
When Sessions was elected Alabama’s attorney general, he followed through with this case and ensured Hays was executed. Hays’ prosecution led to a $7 million civil judgment against the Klan, effectively dismantling the KKK in Alabama.
HAHA! This is so rich. The left now has to make up stories to distract from their massive election and political failures. What a bunch of liars. That’s why I’m so glad that Tucker Carlson got the article’s author on his show to ram his lies down his own throat. This is awesome.
You know, the right is getting hammered about “fake news” but that CNN article is about as fake as they come. The Clinton News Network clearly did their research before writing it [sarcasm].
What utter garbage.
