Code Pink protesters resurface at Jeff Sessions hearings wearing KKK hoods, robes, but getting his name wrong

The first hearing for a Trump administration Cabinet selection began Tuesday, but was disrupted by Code Pink protesters in costumes and men in white sheets, KKK pointed caps, shouting outrage over the Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) selection for Attorney General.

The men wearing KKK caps, standing on chairs in the Senate hearing room, claimed they were Sessions’ #1 fans.

“Jefferson Beauregard, you speak for the people!” said one of them, calling the nominee by his first and middle name.

As police escorted the two men out, one yelled, “You can’t arrest me, we’re white. White people don’t get arrested. I’m a white man!”

Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin claimed credit for the KKK-themed protesters on twitter, claiming the ejected men were part of her group. Benjamin didn’t address their racist presentation of Caucasians.

As one of the Code Pink protesters was being removed, shouted “do not vote for Jim Sessions,” getting the Alabama Senator’s name wrong.

Many leftists are calling Sessions a racist, pulling out a quote and hearing from the 1980’s, ignoring his tenure in the Senate over the last twenty years. In fact, Cory Booker is breaking tradition to testify AGAINST his colleague, bringing up these issues and concerns, but illustrating an incredible hypocrisy as the New Jersey Senator praised Sessions less than a year ago. read more HERE
