Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama is leaping to the defense of his fellow Alabaman Jeff Sessions against those who dare accuse him of racism. And Brooks knows the real reason that civil rights heroes like John Lewis are doing so — they’re part of the “war on whites.”
Speaking on Alabama’s WBHP 800, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), made his comments on the same day that civil rights pioneer and fellow House member John Lewis (D-GA) and Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) spoke out against the controversial lawmaker.
“It’s really about political power and racial division and what I refer to, on occasion, as the ‘war on whites,’” he explained. “And the Democrats are not shy about lying in order to achieve their political goals.”
“And if they have to besmirch the reputation of a good man, Jeff Sessions, in order to achieve their political goals, they, as a group, are not hesitant to do so,” Brooks continued.
Lying? You mean like when Sessions lied on his questionnaire and claimed that he had personally prosecuted several civil rights cases as the state attorney in Alabama when those suits were really brought by the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division and he had almost nothing to do with them? That kind of lying, you mean? And oh yes, the war on whites, the greatest non-existent war since the war on Christmas. Won’t someone think of the powerful white politicians, who are so oppressed and abused? LEAVE POWERFUL WHITE MEN ALONE! YOU’RE MAKING THE BABY JESUS — WHO WAS TOTALLY WHITE — CRY.
