1. good old neo-confederate sessions

 

from the state that ranked 2nd in lynching of AA from 1918-1960. So no surprise that HE WILL give the green light, again, to those who murder minorities under cover of badge and uniforms, to shoot first, ask questions later, again.

open season without any accountability. You know he is counting on those numbers to rise.

4. Yes..

I don't think it's far fetched to say either.. Just look at what Steve King says, and he's brazen enough these days to out the agenda at play here.

7. You mean this?

KING: "I think the -- the best appointment of all, I should say nomination of all, is Jeff Sessions for attorney general. That is the one that will have the best, the most effective, short, mid, and a long-term impact on our government, on our rule of law, and our Constitution. That's the one I'm completely exhilarated about, Jeff Sessions."

8. and contextualise that with this:

jorge ramos told tucker carlson that whites will be a minority by 2044.

On a radio show King commented, in response, “When you start accentuating the differences, then you end up with people that are at each others’ throats,” King said. “And he’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America. I will predict that Hispanics and blacks will be fighting each other before that happens."

10. "I will predict that Hispanics and blacks will be fighting each other before that happens."

This ^ won't be the case. It is Sessions job, which he is eager to preform, to even up the numbers of POC vs white. They want to cling to their white privilege at all costs.

5. Here's what gets me

The Times studied all these cases so that they could verify what everyone already knows. We can now say, "See, what we've been telling you for years is a FACT". But facts don't matter to the Sessions agenda. They don't even give him pause. Why? Because he is an inveterate racist. He sucked racist milk from his racist mom's racist tit. The only way to get Sessions' attention is to show how he can be more racist.

6. & what other agenda could there be except to see more people (PoC) dead, why attack reforms?

9. Actually, it's nothing but "win" for Sessions

He gets to be racist first and foremost. But after that, he gets to dismantle Obama's legislation and shrink fed control of states.

Did you notice what the police were saying about it? The cops on the street think that it's wonderful because the oversight had been a nuisance. The chiefs think it's bad because it means a loss of fed money. So, nothing really about the main point of the oversight, to make damned sure there was no racially motivated abuse of power.

11. When I first read about what he was doing I figured he had a body count in mind that hasn't been

reached yet.

Sick fuck.

12. Session's wet dream is nationwide race riots sparked by a police shooting.

He'll then become the Grand Marshal of martial law.

13. I wouldn't doubt martial law might be his wet dream..

his track record on everything from criminal justice reform to civil forfeitures to digital rights is atrocious.
