Stop Sen. Sesssions From Making U.S. into a Sadistic State as D.A.!
Petition from MoveOn.org to stop Sen. Jeffery Beauregard Sessions from becoming District Attorney of the U.S. under Pres. Trump. Reasons to prevent his appointment as DA include overt racism and outdated pre-Civil War thinking. He also doesn't respect state rights on cannabis legalization. Sen. Sessions will take the U.S. backwards into a state of sadistic racial feudalism.
The Green Liberty Party founder Mark Paul Miller is renouncing the election of Donald Trump as the worst case scenario domestically. With Hillary a foreign war with Syria and/or Iran was nearly 100% certainty, though she may have been better domestically. Since presidents usually have more power with their foreign than their domestic agenda we MAY have avoided another four years of muffled warfare with Trump.
The GLP position is that either choice was bad and the U.S. election process is undemocratic by excluding third parties. Being forced to choose between two narcissistic psycho/sociopaths for President of the U.S. is never going to have a positive outcome either way. For 2020 the electoral college needs to be done away with and the popular vote should be what chooses a President.
We the people have gotten ourselves into another fine mess, either way we were all heading for some type of trouble under Hillary or Trump. To prevent this domestic neo-fascism from spiraling out of control further we can try to sign some of the petitions asking him to remove Sen. Jeffery Beauregard Sessions from his appointment to District Attorney.
The reasons to unappoint Jeff Sessions are simple, the man has openly admitted to being a racist with views dating to the pre-Civil War South. He jokes that he "used to think they (KKK) were ok" until he learned that they were "pot smokers". There is some truth to every joke, he is revealing his conditioned thinking. The humor is his way of sheepishly admitting he is wrong, but his psychopathic personality enjoys the shock value of such statements.
He also has called white civil rights lawyers race traitors for defending blacks against violent Southern racism. He wants to revoke federal funding for sanctuary cities and birthright citizenship (protected by 14th Amendment). Sen. Sessions is NOT a fair minded person who would unite the U.S. He will try to impose his Alabama style racist mindset on the rest of the U.S. population. Abraham Lincoln would be rolling in his grave retching if he knew how we've sold our souls to the Confederacy by allowing Trump to appoint Sen. Sessions to DA.
Sadly for Sen. Sessions he grew up with sort of brainwashing since he was a child in Alabama. These types of beliefs of racism and anti-cannabis are ingrained into his psyche. He cannot just break free from his mentality with a few inappropriate jokes. There are people who were so brainwashed against cannabis that they would sooner die prematurely than try legalized medical cannabis. If they choose this self destructive fate for themselves they will surely make that choice for others.
There are also serious quotes from Sen. Sessions about cannabis users, "there are no good people who smoke pot" or words to that effect. He wasn't joking that time, that is how he truly feels about pot smokers. "Good people burn crosses, not bowls of pot!" could be Sen. Sessions view on life.
Stop Jeff Sessions!
Petition by Jeremiah Smith
To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate
Members of Congress must reject the nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. As a known racist with a long record of opposing civil rights and equality, it is unimaginable that he could be entrusted to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement official.
