Sessions, The Enemy Of Liberty

There is an article you should read over on The Atlantic‘s website, The End of Civil Rights, by Vann R. Newkirk II . In it, Newkirk demonstrates with depressing finality that Jeff Sessions has emerged as the greatest enemy of civil rights that this country has seen in decades. He has single-handledly set out to reverse everything that was achieved in the 1960s and 1970s by such figures as Martin Luther King and the Kennedy brothers. Whether voting rights, or anti-discrimination legislation, or simple human dignity, Sessions is working tirelessly to shut it down.

Of course, on some level, this isn’t a surprise. Sessions is a figure out of a racist tradition that was supposed to have died out in the 1890s. But what is truly disturbing is that this horrible, rat-like little creature is in a position to make his assortment of diseased biases the law of the land.
