The Resistance Reports
March 8, 2917
Elizabeth Warrn was barred from reading a famous letter about Racism as related to Trump’s appointment of Sessions to the Attorney General position, in the Senate confirmation hearing.
The wording used to silence Warren, by Mitch McConnell were,
“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
Looks like Warren just got a classic KKK’s White Male Supremacist treatment.
The Ku Klux Klan (KKK), or simply “the Klan“, is the name of three distinct movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration, and, especially in later iterations, Nordicism, anti-Catholicism, and antisemitism. Historically the KKK used terrorism, both physical assault and murder, against groups or individuals whom they opposed. All three movements have called for the “purification” of American society, and all are considered right wing extremist organizations.
Mitch was just caught in a photo standing in front of a big Confederate Flag, in a gift exchange picture. The Confederate fag generally means the continuing of Southern America, as it was before the Civil War, which was about the Slavery, which in tern is about Racism. The flag is used by the KKK, an extremist Racist group still exists today, as the symbol for their movement.
Trump has a history of deeply involved with racism, i.e his father went to KKK gathering and the Trump business was involved in racist practices before sued by the government. Trump also has a history of defending the KKK, for example, early in the 2016 American election, when a former head of KKK, David Duke, came out to voice strong support, Trump did not reject the support & defended David Duke, for months, until the criticism became very vocal, then Trump distanced himself from David Duke.
Concerning Mitch, his relationship with the KKK is similar to Trump, meaning no problem with the relationship, if it is hidden and little criticism made. Mitch has a reputation in Congress of being the staunchest supporter of Trump, with only once in a great while would take Trump on directly, most of these are on issues of international relations, as related to national security.
Silenced on the Senate floor for condemning a peer, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, emerged on Wednesday in a coveted role: the avatar of liberal resistance in the age of Trump. Late on Tuesday, Senate Republicans voted to halt the remarks of Ms. Warren, already a lodestar of the left, after she criticized a colleague, Senator Jeff Sessions, the nominee for attorney general, by reading a letter from Coretta Scott King.
Instantly, the decision — led by Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, who invoked a rarely enforced rule prohibiting senators from impugning the motives and conduct of a peer — amplified Ms. Warren’s message and further inflamed the angry Senate debate over Mr. Sessions’ nomination.
