Jeff Sessions underwent relentless scrutiny by Democrats during his confirmation hearings last week. One of his critics, Cedric Richmond, had some very harsh words for Mr. Sessions.
Richmond is the current head of the Congressional Black Caucus and he begin his testimony by saying, “I want to express my concerns about being made to testify at the very end of the witness panels. To have a senator, a House member, and a living civil rights legend testify at the end of all of this is the equivalent of being made to go to the back of the bus.”
Richmond was referring to the racist segregation laws of the past, when black Americans were forced to sit in the back of the bus and give white passengers seats ahead of blacks. This disgusting practice is long gone, and Richmond is bringing up the ghosts of the past to try and slander Jeff Sessions.
Richmond is part of a growing problem – Democrats are obsessed with making every situation about race. According to Allen B. West, this is not Richmond’s only shameless race-baiting incident. Richmond has been “fighting to keep a painting depicting police officers as pigs hanging in the Capitol.”
As part of a high school competition in the capitol, 18-year-old David Pulphus submitted a painting reflecting his feelings about police violence and depicts police officers as pigs. After the painting was removed by a Republican Representative, a political battle ensued. Richmond threatened: the next time the painting was removed, “we may just have to kick somebody’s a** and stop them.”
Fortunately the Architect of the Capitol announced that the painting will be removed. Democrats never learn their lesson! They continue to bully, threaten, and vilify Republicans – but they keep losing the battle.
