Pete Sessions Used Racist Tropes In Hearing About White Supremacy

Pete Sessions is an embarrassment to Texas. He should be ashamed of himself.

1. What did he say?

I'm tired of clicking on links to adds or opinion sites where I have to wade though other stuff to find out .... Nothing...

2. Same old crap; from the link:


“Look like today we realize Black Lives Matter and Antifa are not the only sources of political violence.”
Sessions said that the “political angle” of the Black Lives Matter movement is disturbing to him and law enforcement. The political angle? The “political angle” of the movement is to stop state-sanctioned murders, stop police from repeatedly killing, and for racial justice in all government systems. Pete Sessions is disturbed that Black people want their constitutional rights and to be treated fairly.

“Being part of this, whether you’re in Black Lives Matter or Antifa; whether you’re in Portland, Oregon or Minnesota. Or whether you’re in the United States Capitol. This is a problem to our country.”

There's probably more but I couldn't read it.

4. WHite blather

He wants to have hearings to help heal our nation.

Um, The Black Lives Matter protests across the nation showed White America one way to heal: Stop allowing law enforcement to gun down Black people in the streets. Or in their homes. Or killing them without bullets.

That's too big an ask of white people. *Their* fee-fees get hurt when they have to acknowledge racism. We have to focus on making sure white people don't feel bad about racial violence they tacitly enjoy and hope to see more of ("Cops".

White men = 30% of Americans, but they hold 62% of government offices at all levels.
Women = 51% of Americans.

Fear of long coming demographic trends. Looks to me like whites don't want to play nice, or fair, or by the golden rule. The Patriarchy is dying, and they're obnoxious and dangerous about it.
