Seriously Trump?!?! The Pictures of Jeff Sessions They Don’t Want You To See.

Jeff Sessions is going to be the next Attorney General of the United States. The Senate Democrats, having scrapped the filibuster on nominations, have no way to stop him. Will these pictures stop him?

By Erick Erickson

They show Jeff Sessions marching in the streets with … wait for it … no seriously, wait for it … civil rights icon John Lewis. Whaaaaa???

That’s right. The media wants you to think Jeff Sessions is some sort of Alabamian unrepentant racist, but in fact Jeff Sessions has a long history of fighting segregation in Alabama, seeking the death penalty for KKK members, and marching with civil rights leaders to commemorate and honor the 50th anniversary of the march at Selma.

Senator Sessions would have won re-election handily in Alabama had he refused. But he went. He supported it. At the time he noted the injustice that had been done.

Senator Sessions also voted for the extension of the Civil Rights Act.

He voted to confirm Eric Holder as the first black Attorney General.

Senator Sessions and Senator Dick Durbin cosponsored legislation to bring penalties for crack possession, which many African-Americans felt unfairly targeted them, more in line with the penalties for powder cocaine.

Senator Sessions spearheaded the effort to award the Congressional Gold Medal to Rosa Parks, an Alabama native and Civil Rights icon.

And, brace yourself, when Senator Jeff Sessions was young, he campaigned against George Wallace in Alabama.

Jeff Sessions disagrees on a number of things with the left on policy. But disagreement on policy does not make Sessions a racist. That the left has to attack Sessions as a racist is proof that they have nothing on Sessions — a man who marched with a civil rights leader.
