I hope you don't mean "you" in that statement towards me as a Republican. I'm not one. I'm sort of Independent but I don't even like calling it that. People associate Independent with things too...

And propaganda has always been around on both sides of the aisle.

That's just one video. Look at his wrap sheet. He's a down right southern hick and what makes it worse is that he is going to appoint another Alabama racist hick, Chuck Cooper as his solicitor general.

Sad.

And of course there is this award to Sessions from the NAACP for the outstanding work he has done in civil rights.

Don't you fear. Black Lives Madder (BLM) will keep those racist hicks in check!

In Alabama, Jeff Sessions Desegregated Schools and Got the Death Penalty for KKK Murderer


These accusations all center around the bruising judicial nomination process Sessions went through in 1986.
...
Ultimately, the charges were no more than hearsay.

However, it's worth noting that Senator Ted Kennedy, on the Senate judiciary committee at the time, seemed heavily invested in tanking Sessions nomination.
...
Sessions's actual track record certainly doesn't suggest he's a racist. Quite the opposite, in fact. As a U.S. Attorney he filed several cases to desegregate schools in Alabama. And he also prosecuted Klansman Henry Francis Hays, son of Alabama Klan leader Bennie Hays, for abducting and killing Michael Donald, a black teenager selected at random. Sessions insisted on the death penalty for Hays. When he was later elected the state Attorney General, Sessions followed through and made sure Hays was executed. The successful prosecution of Hays also led to a $7 million civil judgment against the Klan, effectively breaking the back of the KKK in Alabama.

I will take Snopes.com's research on this matter. Here is what they said about the so-called NAACP award.

"However, the above-displayed award has some unusual aspects to it. For instance, we found no record of anyone else's having received an "NAACP Governmental Award of Excellence," nor were we able to locate any reports (from 2009 or otherwise) regarding the NAACP's honoring Sessions with such an award.

When we reached out to the NAACP for more information about the award, a staffer confirmed to us that the national NAACP office does not give out an award by that name as part of their regular honors."

snopes? Sorry but snopes is known to be biased.

The NAACP is also biased at this point, because they hate Trump. But even they have not denied the award. They just say they are "investigating".

It was the Alabama chapter that gave the award.


The NAACP has been highly critical of President Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be U.S. attorney general, but it seems the group is unaware that its Alabama chapter doesn’t seem to agree—or least it didn’t back in 2009 when it awarded him their “Governmental Award of Excellence.”

The award was recently located while Sessions’ aide was helping him clean out his office to prepare for his move to the DOJ, Politico reported. The Alabama senator even had to send in a supplemental response to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary’s questionnaire regarding honors and awards he’s received.

Apparently [NAACP President Cornell Brooks] doesn’t stay in contact with the NAACP chapter in Alabama,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday while sharing news of the award on the Senate floor.

I find it crazy that your right wingers are doing mental gymnastics to legitimize Sessions and what is going on in the white house. From Bannon to Mnuchin to Sessions, they are all right wing white supremacists. To say they are not is simply revisionist history AKA alternative facts.

You guys wonder why the entire world sees this country falling apart with Trump, but you don't. It's because you are completely engrossed in right wing propaganda. I'm here to tell you to get off the ledge and have some common sense for god sake.

No no no, snopes has been extremely reliable over the years. It may seem biased to you because you've been entrenched in right wing propaganda and live in an alternative reality.

Being a hypocrite because of Hypocrisy needs a word. It can't be fathomable that's the Right's platform for every argument.

I will add this too about how badly you radicalized right wingers have become.

For the better of the last 30 years, moderates and the left have been telling you that trickle down, Reaganomics as well as globalization is horrible for this country. But, you chose not to listen and rather wrapped yourself in this BS right wing propaganda.

Fast forward to today and all of a sudden the right wingers go ape sh it during this last election because the south and the rust belt have no jobs and our country is in massive debt. Moderates and the left have been telling you for the last 30 years that this is a problem, yet you chose to continue to listen to right wing propaganda and you elected a person that just opened the flood gates to make our bad problems socially and economically exponentially even worse.

When are you guys going to get it? You have been brainwashed to think that a square peg is going to fit a circle hole. It's almost like an abused spouse. You continue to get beat over the head with right wing propaganda, you know it's not true, but you keep going back to it. It's time to stop this madness because the next step will involve a war with another country and/or the collapse of our economic and social structure. If you live in the South or in the Rust Belt and your economic situation is dire, you just wait until Trump collapses the economy. It will make your problems 1000% worse than what they are today.
