LIBERATING ELDER – The political theater of the absurd was on full display all day yesterday in Washington DC during the confirmation hearing for Jeff Sessions to assume the roll of Attorney General. Rather than use the time to ask pointed questions which would give Americans an idea of the stances Sessions would take on important issues, Democrats chose to use the time to grandstand, slander and ridicule both Sessions and Trump.
Perhaps the most unbelievably absurd moment of the hearings came when Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) asked Sessions if he had ever been given an award by the Klu Klux Klan … yeah, seriously.
Perhaps Blumenthal had a senior moment and somehow believed he was vetting former Democratic Senator Robert Byrd who was the leader of the KKK for years before becoming a Senator and Hillary Clinton’s self described ‘mentor’. Certainly no one in their right mind would think that the man who fought for civil rights as an attorney decades ago and is credited with bankrupting the Klan in Alabama would think that the hate group would be honoring Sessions anytime soon.
Liberty Writers News reports that:
Sessions prosecuted Henry Francis Hays, a leader of the KKK who abducted and killed Michael Donald, a black teenager. Sessions insisted on the death penalty for Hays. When he was later elected the state Attorney General, Sessions followed through and made sure Henry 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.
Chris Galanos, the former Mobile district attorney on the case said,
“securing Henry Hays’s conviction was a long, involved process, and the resources Sessions provided helped break the case wide open.”
None of this information is foreign to Blumenthal, he is well aware of Sessions history as a civil rights proponent, which makes these unfounded attacks even more disgusting. When Blumenthal asks Sessions about the Klan and if they had ever given him an award you can hear the room collectively gasp in shame and surprise, but Sessions reply was priceless.
“WELL, I WON’T RECEIVE IT FROM HENRY HAYS, I’LL TELL YOU THAT! HE NO LONGER EXISTS!”
