Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican from South Carolina, is the racist clown Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. This ignoramous will preside over the Supreme Court hearing for Amy “Handmaid” Coney Barrett
Graham vows to push through the nomination of this, make no mistake, extreme right wing nominee.
No wonder America is coming apart at the seams.
Fasciscts, racists and ignorant clowns are running the asylum.
Excerpted from The Guardian 10.10.2020
In a televised campaign event US senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said African Americans and immigrants can “go anywhere” in his home state but they “ just need to be conservative”.
South Carolina was a Confederate state during the civil war, and later institutionalized racism during the Jim Crow era, enforcing the second-class status of African Americans.
Graham made the comment in a televised “conversation” with his political rival, former South Carolina Democratic party chair Jaime Harrison, the first African American to serve in the role.
“Do I believe our cops are systemically racist? No. Do I believe South Carolina is a racist state? No. Let me tell you why. To young people out there, young people of color, young immigrants, this is a great state, but one thing I can say without any doubt, you can be an African American and go to the Senate but you just have to share our values.”
He went on to say: “If you’re a young, African American or an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state, you just need to be conservative, not liberal”.
The comment was in response to a question about civil unrest, and as America reckons with its long history of racism and ongoing police brutality, including the national revulsion following the killing of Black man George Floyd by a white Minneapolis police officer.
