You have to be pretty averse to research and critical thinking to believe that Jeff Sessions is a racist.
The guy has fought against racism his whole life and the nonsense that prevented him from a judgeship in 1986 isn’t remotely as serious as the left wants us to believe.
Today, a group of black pastors stood up for Sessions and the media did their best to write it off.
From USA Today:
A group of black pastors Monday criticized African-American opponents of attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions for demonizing the Alabama Republican, instead characterizing him as someone who shows “respect and care for people of all races.”
The ministers are holdout Sessions supporters in a much larger crowd of opponents among Southern black clergy and African-American and civil rights groups, including the North Carolina Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Alabama NAACP and the activist group PICO, which uses congregations and churches to help in community organizing.
“There is an attempt by some to demonize people and call them racist when there is actually no proof for it,” Evangelical Bishop Harry Jackson said at a Capitol Hill news conference. “Let me say clearly, Sen. Sessions is not a racist.”
The left always tells us that “having black friends” doesn’t mean you aren’t racist.
That doesn’t really make sense.
In fact, what better argument is there? If a white person surrounds himself with black people in his free time then yeah he’s probably not that much of a racist. Calling those black people “fake” or “Uncle Toms”? Now that’s racist. And the left does it all the time.
Regardless, it’s nice to see that these pastors stood up for Sessions despite the nasty names they will be called by liberals.
