Sessions is a 1970s Alabama " frat boy " in his world views. He’s never needed to evolve/update his political philosophy, on the spoiled, rich, good ol’ white boys network, mentality. It’s ingrained in the cultural and political organization of the state of Alabama. History shows this is akin to a " caste " system not unlike those of Old India, under the rule of the British Empire. Parallels abound here. Alabama should have an official House of Lords, really. It would be a more honest fit and realistic depiction of the place.
The state of Alabama’s levers of power in its court and law enforcement systems, voting and property rights legislation is anachronistic, to put it mildly. But, so is the House of Lords and the caste system. The British Empire is kind of a tired joke, for all practical matters, as well.
AG Sessions has lived and practiced law in this bubble, or time capsule, for over 4 decades. With the election of Trump, another square unevolved white frat boy bigot, the forces of Southern white class structure aligned almost perfectly with the new administration. Perfectly for their reactionary and bigoted fellow travelers, too, not for most Americans living in the 21st Century. The best analogy would be when The Corleone Family gangsters aligned their political and financial clout with the Hyman Roth Syndicate in Godfather II. Can’t you just envision these two cold-blooded business groups carving up and maiming America’s common bonds for money and revenge; honor killings and " personal scores ", as well. It’s easy to see Roth as Sessions, Trump as Michael; well, Trump hung out with real gangsters so there’s that, anyway.
The insane and weird thing about this unfolding Nightmare on Pennsylvania Ave. is it’s not a movie, it’s a reality show. And, 35-40% of the electorate, likes what they’re seeing. Be afraid, be very afraid, here. Unless you like mobsters and monsters, of course.
