Well, this is a surprising one.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is promising to aggressively “enforce federal hate crime laws, countering concerns among civil rights groups and some of his former Senate colleagues that he might put such prosecutions on the back burner.”
“I know the responsibility that we have, and we have a responsibility to protect people’s freedom, their religious rights, their integrity, their ability to express themselves, to push back against violence and hate crimes that occur in our country,” Sessions told federal prosecutors gathered for a Justice Department hate crimes summit in Washington on Thursday. “So, we’re going to do that, I will assure you, in every way.”
So, although I may be highly suspicious of this character, I will give credit when it is due. Today’s “Thank You” goes to Mr. Sessions.
