Silenced Twice by the Senate, Coretta Scott King’s Words Live On


Silenced Twice by the Senate, Coretta Scott King’s Words Live On

Amy Goodman, Denis Moynihan

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was interrupted while reading the words of Coretta Scott King on the Senate floor this week. Warren was reading a 1986 letter King wrote in opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, then a U.S. attorney in Alabama, to a federal district judgeship. In a rare decision, the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected Sessions. Now, as the Senate debated a new confirmation of Sen. Sessions for the position of U.S.


I was glad to hear that others, after she was made to leave the room, continued to read the letter. But they were not silenced. Mc Connell didn't think (as usual). What he did by silencing her and her going on facebook live, many millions of people heard the letter that probably wouldn't have. The truth comes out. The people knows what Sessions is about and his past record will come up to bite him if he tries to unfairly use his prejudice now. People will not stand by and let him judge black people - or Hispanics - unfairly because he thinks he's a privileged white man


I hope you are correct! He must be watched carefully and continuously.

Bravo to Senator Warren! She did all she could! Elizabeth 2020, if our democracy makes it until then!


Lack of choice, voting rights and democracy in a system rigged by the oligarchy gave us Sessions.
