1986 is hardly relevant to today

Totally relevant when the topic is Jeff Sessions.

One year jail time for protestation? Thats ridiculous. Protesting in approved 'free speech zones' hardly qualifies as a protest. If one can only protest where the law says it's ok to do so then the action is not really a protest.

Yeah, a year in jail? Big deal. I might be kicked out of heaven for laughing at the fat guy slurping the communion juice and making a nasty slurpy sound when I was a kid. You know.. those giggles that you can NOT suppress? Yeah, those. Not even my moms "Im gonna break your arm" threats could stop them..... see you in hell guys.

So...purposefully disrupting a formal court proceeding in session is OK in your country then? Judges have no problem allowing people to make a scene in their courtrooms all willy nilly like, just whenever they feel the urge? Legal proceedings must take weeks to complete. Hmm. Maybe your attorneys don't charge by the hour either.


Did you listen to the video I put above? It was as disruptive as someone coughing BEFORE they made a huge scene dragging her out.

That's just stupid.

Because they want you to think so. It would be like saying man may go to jail for opening his hand, while forgetting to mention he was dropping a grenade on people.

What she did will get this same outcome all day every day all over the country.

Hum grenade huh good example
She CHUCKLED!
Where is this law?

Entitled snowflakes think freedom means getting to do whatever you want.

Captain tinyhands and his minions are trying to make examples out of people who openly oppose the BS they are slinging.

Sessions is a goon and lives in another world. He should be openly mocked and laughed at during all of his public appearances. Jeff Sessions as AG is a cruel joke. He's a racist, a bigot, a liar, and a stooge.



Dear Senator Thurmond:

I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama. my professional and personal roots in Alabama are deep and lasting. Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts.

Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.

I regret that a longstanding commitment prevents me from appearing in person to testify against this nominee. However, I have attached a copy of my statement opposing Mr. Sessions' confirmation and I request that my statement as well as this letter be made a part of the hearing record.

I do sincerely urge you to oppose the confirmation of Mr. Sessions.

Sincerely, Coretta Scott King

Coretta Scott King's 1986 letter and testimony

The world would be a better place if Jeff Sessions died tomorrow. Maybe him and Trump can fall down a flight of stairs together. Jackasses.


Lol....cause calling a black man in your employ "boy" is racist. Poor little snowflakes.

Yes, again I say she did nothing but make a tiny sound until they began dragging her out.

Wish you were in a position to ask those 'entitled snowflakes' who founded the country how they feel about freedom. The very action of imprisoning someone for an act of peaceful protest is detestable. The scene would have never become a scene at all if it wasn't for the bully with a badge 'escorting' the protester out of the room.

This whole snowflake thing is outrageous. Right wingers throw that word around alluding to the younger generation and their inability to take criticism, and then while under the same critical eyes of the public behave the exact same way. Hypocrites, all of them, including you. Would you call a soldier, sailor, or airman a snowflake just for having views opposed to your own? Stupid.

That wasn't a protest! That was a disruption of a legal proceeding! Don't believe me? Go to your local courthouse tomorrow and walk into a hearing and act like that dipsnip did and get back to me when you get out of jail!

Jeebus Krist, how you people twist the laws to fit you ideology is just freakin amazing!

I suppose she should have left quietly.

She was protesting. Protest: a statement or action expressing disapproval of or objection to something.

Weather or not is was disruptive doesn't detract from the action of protest. By the very nature of many protests they are disruptive. Civil disobedience, for example. If you have to get a permit to protest, it's no longer a protest.

If she broke a window, would it still be considered a protest?

I think you should find a high profile murder trial and go do some disruptive protesting. See how it turns out for you.

Like I said, "Go to your local courthouse tomorrow and disrupt a legal proceeding and get back to me when you get out of jail."?

If I am wrong, you won't go to jail, if you are wrong you will go to jail! Put your money where your mouth is, or are you just all talk?

No that would be considered vandalism, obviously. Civil disobedience doesn't include those jackasses wearing bandannas over their faces breaking windows. Those are not protesters but rioters.
