    Default Sessions Is A Proud Racist

    And he's no longer hiding it. Sessions was speaking to the National Sheriff's Association this morning and complimented them for their work in preserving Anglo-American heritage. Sorry Jeffrey but law enforcement does not serve the purpose you think they do and if your statement is even remotely true then it's time for a constitutional driven change.

    "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 in remarks at the National Sheriffs Association winter meeting, adding, "The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement."

    Look, Johnson said passing civil rights legislation was going to lose the South for the Democratic Party for a generation, and he's been proved exactly right. A generation, at a minimum.



    Come on now, completely explicit racism hasn't been too cool for a little while, so Republicans have been using code, with bits like the infamous Willy Horton ad, or Reagan's "Welfare Queen" gambit.
    You mean the *** Bill of 1957?

    There are scores of better examples to support the assertion.

    It's a characteristic that helped him get the job in the first place. AN endearing quality.

    Sweet irony his appointed helped kick start the special counsel.

    Sessions doesn't get that benefit. It's OK, tomorrow all the Republicans can go back to hating on Jeff Sessions for bungling the conspiracy to keep Russian contacts a secret and not locking her up.

    There is no doubt. What he said is a fact.

    In the context of what he was saying and whom he was saying it to, American law enforcement being derived from slave patrols in the pursuit of white supremacy would have been completely factual.

    It's OK, we all see it. All the Republicans hate on Sessions until he says something that's at least racially questionable (again, a benefit of the doubt he doesn't get) and then they all "rally" (see what I did there? wink wink, nudge nudge...rally, get it?) around him.

    Tomorrow it will be back to hating on Sessions for being the one who really kick started the investigations into the Trump campaign for getting caught lying and exposing the Trump conspiracy to deny Russian contacts.

    lemme guess.... you are from the south and feel guilt that there may be a little kkk home guard hidden in your family's past.

    Where I grew up, the underground railroad was strong, and John Brown felt safe enough to plan his raid.

    There was no Underground Railroad (which is capitalized on American spell checkers) in Moscow, comrade.

    The left will never give up on claiming Republicans are racists. Never, ever.

    But this is funny. Earlier in this thread a poster quoted Obama from when he was a Senator, and used the term the left is all in a lather about regarding Sessions. But it wasn't the only time Obama did so. Here he says it in 2009 in a story about closing Gitmo.

    Obama would not say whether it could be achieved within the first 100 days of his term, citing the challenge of creating a balanced process "that adheres to rule of law, habeas corpus, basic principles of Anglo-American legal system, but doing it in a way that doesn't result in releasing people who are intent on blowing us up.

I hope we remember this as we go forward. I sincerely hope we can protect what has been called the "great writ"—a writ that has been in place in the Anglo-American legal system for over 700 years.

    Mr. President, this should not be a difficult vote. I hope we pass this amendment because I think it is the only way to make sure this underlying bill preserves all the great traditions of our legal system and our way of life.

    I yield the floor.
    And the left is tripling down on "sessions is a racist" even though we've provided a couple of examples of Obama using the same phrase.

    Even the linked article explained the concept of "Anglo American heritage", including the origin of the word "sherriff", from Anglo Saxon English, meaning guardian of the county.

    Sessions clarifies his use of this term through the concept of keeping law enforcement accountable through the election process.

    The U S Constitution and its principles are originated, at least in part, from the Magna Carta, no?

    I'm not seeing racism here.

    The original immigrants were Anglo Saxons looking to live out their own religion, and the colonists rebelled until they were free of the Crown, but England and the U S share some commonalities.

    Now if the Mexican heritage of our food changes, THAT will be considered racist.

    The whole "derived from slave patrols" thing is not true either for most of the country. The first quasi police entities in the north developed as night watchmen in places like Boston. In the South there were things like slave patrols but only in the south.

    The first true police force was again in Boston in 1838 and had nothing to do with slave patrols.

    This whole slave patrol thing is just something that race baiters like to generalize to all police agencies in America when it was strictly a regional thing,
