Sessions the would-be fascist
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a master of the racist dog whistle.
His latest whistle, aimed at Hawaii, reminds us older Americans that Alabama and other southern states opposed admitting Hawaii a state because of all its brown people.
Out here, we get it. Sessions has been razzed all over Facebook by Hawaii people.
His lame attempt to raise the pitch a little higher just made him look like not only a racist but an inept lawyer.
For RtO, I’ll just repeat my comment on the Politico story:
Sessions is a racist. The comment was both racist and a part of Trump’s relentless attack on the independence of the judiciary.
Sessions, if you believe your order was constitutional, the way lawyers defend such actions is by making an effective argument in court.
The way racists and would-be fascists do it is the way you did it.
