Sessions’ reference to ‘Anglo-American’ legal heritage concerns some groups
Among those who weighed in on Sessions’ speech included Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, who called the phrase a “dog whistle” and expressed continued pride in his opposition to the attorney general’s nomination last year, and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a candidate in the state’s 2018 gubernatorial election, who called Sessions an “outright racist.”
Do you know anyone who says “Anglo-American heritage” in a sentence? What could possibly be the purpose of saying that other than to pit Americans against each other? For the chief law enforcement officer to use a dog whistle like that is appalling. Best NO vote I ever cast.
