Liberals have twisted a situation, implying that there was wrongdoing when a woman was removed for being disorderly during the confirmation hearing of Jeff Sessions.
The story, according to mainstream media, is that she was ‘convicted for laughing,’ which makes her sound like the innocent victim of a harsh conservative government, but here’s what you don’t know…
Desiree Fairooz was dressed in a Ku Klux Klan costume along with two other protestors. She was part of an organization called “Code Pink,” which is a women’s rights activist organization. She openly despises Sessions calling him “anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT” and pro “white supremacist terrorist group Ku Klux Klan.”
She waited specifically to ‘laugh’ when Alabama Senator Richard Shelby said “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well documented,” in an attempt to interrupt the procedure and cause a scene.
And she was not charged with anything serious, only with disorderly conduct because the laugh specifically was an attempt to “impede, disrupt, and disturb orderly conduct” over the course of the confirmation hearing.
This is another case of liberal mainstream media twisting the truth to suit their agenda. Fairooz says she is “really disappointed” that she did not get away with this, but what in the world was she thinking? If someone interrupted a liberal the same way, the whole country would be up in arms against them as opposed to supporting them.
All three protesters are connected to Code Pink, a women’s rights activist organisation. “I felt it was my responsibility as a citizen to dissent at the confirmation hearing of Senator Jeff Sessions, a man who professes anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT policies, who has voted against several civil rights measures and who jokes about the white supremacist terrorist group the Ku Klux Klan,” Ms Fairooz said in a statement released before the verdict came in.
Prosecutors said they brought the charges because the laugh was an attempt to “impede, disrupt, and disturb orderly conduct” of the confirmation hearing. Mr Sessions was a controversial pick to become the nation’s leading law enforcement official and his confirmation path was wrought with contentious moments. The former senator from Alabama was repeatedly accused of expressing racist views in the past — a history of racist accusations that includes a 1980s ad aired by Mr Shelby himself that accused him of calling the KKK “good ole boys.” During his confirmation, Mr Sessions saw rare opposition from a fellow sitting senator, New Jersey’s Corey Booker, who testified boldly against him during his hearings saying that his civil rights record disqualified him from the attorney general post. Mr Booker was joined by civil rights legend Representative John Lewis in voicing concerns about Mr Sessions during those hearings. Later in the confirmation process, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren refocused national attention on Mr Sessions’ alleged racism when she was silenced by Republican leadership as she read, on the Senate floor, a 1986 letter Coretta Scott King wrote while Mr Sessions was up for a federal judgeship accusing him of using public office to intimidate black voters.
