What was his crime this time? He made a statement of historical fact.
"The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement."Whether you want to admit it or not, our form of government with its checks and balances and belief in law rather than personal opinion comes from the British Isles. There may be tweaks thrown in from other parts of the world and the Founding Fathers did read up on Greece, Rome and other attempts at government, but when the sun goes down, it is basically British. If you look at our Bill of Rights and compare it to the English Declaration of Rights of 1689 you get a feeling of genuine plagiarism.
The term “sheriff” comes from the old English according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary. Everyone who has heard of Robin Hood has heard of the Sheriff of Nottingham. The term and the office comes from Merry Old England.
If that makes Sessions a racist then I guess that means two things. It gives him a chance to wear the title with pride and it makes the serious charge of racism into a joke.
Get a grip. Stop trying to divide the country. Put away the race card. Grow up and move on.
