Notorious tax-evading race baiter Al Sharpton is promising a “season of civil disobedience” in reaction to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general in the Trump administration.
Great, more riots and killings of cops and whites…
Sharpton, an MSNBC host, said activists have planned a march in Washington on Jan. 14 during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to protest the Sessions nomination. Sharpton recalled spending 90 days in jail for protesting on U.S. Navy land against military exercises on the island of Vieques in 2001 when George W. Bush was president, adding that civil disobedience usually works because it changes policy, PJMedia is reporting.
“We’re not just doing this to be doing it. We do it because it can lead to change and, believe me, there will be a season of civil disobedience particularly around the Sessions nomination,” he said Friday on a conference call with other civil rights organizations’ leaders such as Cornell William Brooks, president and CEO of the NAACP, and Janet Murguia, president and CEO of the National Council of La Raza.
Sharpton said that activists plan to visit senators’ offices and “make them understand” they will be held accountable if they vote in favor of Sessions, whose confirmation hearings are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday Federalist Papers reports.
“Make them understand that if they think they are voting based on some courtesy of a Senate colleague and will not face a real backlash in their own states, then they have another thing coming. This is not going to be some regular ceremonial procedure that they’re going to be able to bluff their way through,” he said.
“We intend to make this a critical stand in terms of where people are with civil rights and voting rights in this country. No one will be given a pass to say ‘I had to vote for my colleague.’ This is an affront to everything the civil rights and voting rights community has stood for historically and a vote for Sessions should be held accountable and punishable by the voters,” he added.
Sharpton said that Sessions had a poor record on issues such as civil rights, immigrant rights and LGBT rights.
“Clearly members of the Senate, both Republican and Democrat, particularly moderate Republicans, need to know that the nation is going to be watching not only the hearings but the vote, which will be sometime later,” he added.
After Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, Sen. Sessions will be a sight for sore eyes.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
