JEFF SESSIONS IS NOT RACIST – QUITE THE OPPOSITE…HE DESEGREGATED SCHOOLS AND GOT DEATH PENALTY FOR KKK WHO KILLED A BLACK TEEN IN RANDOM!
- As an 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.
In 1986, when Ronald Reagan considered Jeff Sessions for Attorney General post, his nomination was blocked after Democrats successful smear campaign accusing him of being racist . Accusations came from Thomas Figures, a black assistant U.S. attorney who worked for Sessions, who said Sessions called him “boy” and called NAACP ‘un-American’ and ‘communist’ ( W. E. B. Du Bois Clubs, named after one of the original founders of the NAACP, joined the CPUSA in 1961 ).
Jeff 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.
As a U.S. attorney, he also prosecuted a group of civil rights activists, which included a former aide to Martin Luther King Jr., for voter fraud in Perry County, Alabama. The case fell apart, and Sessions bluntly told me he “failed to make the case.” This incident has also been used to claim that Sessions is racist—but it shouldn’t be. The county has been dogged with accusations of voter fraud for decades. In 2008, state and federal officials investigated voter fraud in Perry County after “a local citizens group gathered affidavits detailing several cases in which at least one Democratic county official paid citizens for their votes, or encouraged them to vote multiple times.” A detailed story in the Tuscaloosa News reported that voting patterns in one Perry County town were also mighty suspicious in 2012: “Uniontown has a population of 1,775, according to the 2010 census but, according to the Perry County board of registrars, has 2,587 registered voters. The total votes cast thereTuesday—1,431—represented a turnout of 55 percent of the number of registered voters and a whopping 80.6 percent of the town’s population.”
