Here is video from the NAACP Convention this weekend where they issued a warning to Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions that he should "tone down his rhetoric" about Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor, whose confirmation hearings begin today. Sessions is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and will have opportunity to question Sotomayor.
The NAACP essentially told Sessions "we are watching you," and are seeking to cow him into silence. It won't work. Jeff Sessions is a man of tremendous character and integrity. He won't be intimidated by the radical NAACP, an organization with a proud history, but one that has now veered to the far left. They essentially accuse Sessions of racism in the statement, even calling up the name of Jefferson Davis, implying Sessions is following in his footsteps.
Sen. Sessions and all the Republican senators have a responsibility to question Sotomayor fairly but directly about her many statements that smack of reverse racism. I feel certain Sessions will be true to that responsibility, no matter the intimidation brought against him by far left groups like the NAACP.
