WHITE ‘CHRISTMAS’: Supremacists Celebrate Jeff Sessions’ Nomination
White supremacists are ecstatic about Jeff Session’s pick as Attorney General, celebrating his nomination, apparently seeing him as one of their own.
However, as white nationalists are over the moon about Sessions’ selection, civil rights groups are condemning President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Session for attorney general citing the Alabama Senator’s hardline anti-immigration positions and racially insensitive comments.
Liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America compiled a list of the leading figures on the bigoted “alt-right” who have publicly praised his appointment.
Sessions’ vocal white nationalist backers include David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, radio host James Edwards, writer Hunter Wallace and video blogger RamzPaul.
“I was thinking of Sessions for either Secretary of State or Defense, but I think Trump is making a point by putting an aggressive anti-Black racist in as AG,” Andrew Anglin, editor of the neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer, wrote. he added that “Sessions’ nomination, along with the appointment of retired Gen. Mike Flynn as national security adviser and Steve Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist, is like Christmas.”
But even Anglin acknowledged that the very features that make Sessions an attractive pick to neo-Nazis might make Senate confirmation challenging.
“The reason he might face trouble? Because he’s a racist and most of these RINOs in Congress are filthy cuck traitors to the White race and the GOP,” he wrote.
“Session’s pick is a corrective measure after Obama turned the Justice Department into the Black Panthers,” Anglin wrote.
