NBC Touts Opposition to Sessions from Congressional African-Americans

Written by  Nicholas Fondacaro

Wednesday was the second and final hearing in regards to the attorney general nomination of Alabama Senator Jeff Session, and it was marked by strong opposition from his African-American colleagues on the hill.

And later that night, NBC News seemed to relish in their smears of racism towards the Senator who defeated Alabama’s Ku Klux Klan. “No less drama in this fight as African-American members of congress spoke out today against the nomination,” hyped anchor Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News.

Justice correspondent Pete Williams seemed ecstatic that New Jersey Senator Cory Booker was the first to break a long-standing tradition of the Senate during the hearing. “Senator Cory booker, Democrat of New Jersey, became the first ever to testify against a colleague's nomination,” Williams reported.

Joining him, Congressman John Lewis of Georgia who survived police beatings and civil rights marches,” he continued, effectively qualifying his stance against Sessions. “It doesn't matter how Senator Sessions may smile, how friendly he may be, how he may speak to you,” Lewis warned the committee, while NBC creepily played video of Sessions turning around and smiling.

According to Williams, there was testimony from people vouching for Sessions to become the next attorney general of the United States, with three of them being African-American.

Who believes anything that Lester "slope-head" Holt has to say. I think that he looks like his head was severely damaged at birth. That could explain slot about him!

Booker's got his eye on the White House in 2020. Good luck with that. After the Obama disaster, I doubt that there will be a black President for the next 100 years.
