Extremely far left publication “Raw Story” released an article not too long ago with a headline that misleads the public into thinking Jeff Sessions, Trump’s Att. General pick, was serious when he said the KKK was fine, until he “found out they smoked pot.” The New York Times also spent a great deal of effort painting him as a racist, as they’ve been trying to do with Steve Bannon for quite some time.
It’s a liberal-Democrat tactic that’s been employed for years, and is straight out of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky, Marxist and personal friend to Hillary Clinton before his timely death.
Rule 13 states:
- “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
To compare, Raw Story wrote:
“Jeff Sessions is a drug war dinosaur, which is the last thing the nation needs now,” said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. “Those who counted on Donald Trump’s reassurance that marijuana reforms ‘should be a state issue’ will be sorely disappointed.”
What could be the senator’s motivation for holding such positions?
Back in 1986, when Sessions was serving as a prosecutor in Alabama, President Ronald Reagan nominated him to become a federal judge. However, this application was rejected—by a Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee and during the racist Reagan era—because of Sessions’ behavior around race.
Pay them no mind, this will blow over like everything else the left can throw at Donald Trump and his confidants. Funny joke, Jeff Sessions, you have a fan.
