Leftover fragments of a post from night and early morning. When I get on a long string of closing shifts, the kid misses me more. The windows of sneaking internet time to dither about reading are minuscule.
Jeff Sessions, Trump’s Pick for Attorney General, Is a Fierce Opponent of Civil Rights. Jeff Sessions is garbage who should be completely marginalized from human society. Also:
Hatch pushes for anti-porn committee. Sessions said he'll look into it. Obscenity laws are meant to censor “obscene” speech and material.

Yeah, that’s not going to be an anti-porn thing. It’s going to be an anti-gay and anti-black thing. That’s guaranteed. Sessions will be pursuing anti-sodomy laws and regulating language in rap lyrics with his Christian fundamentalism. His sense of propriety only extends as far as he can use it to abuse minorities.
Freddie Gray case: Judge allows malicious prosecution lawsuit against Mosby to proceed. This is some fascist bullshit and an abortion of justice.
Chicago 1969: When Black Panthers aligned with Confederate-flag-wielding, working-class whites. This story gets passed around often, but it’s a shame that it wasn’t repeatedly thrown in the faces of the Clinton supporters who wrote off the white working class as racist last spring and summer. If they tried to talk shit about the Black Panthers, flank with Saint Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show. Yet another lost opportunity.
