Attorney General Jeff Session At Georgetown On Free Speech

Free speech is the foundation of our democracy.

Speaking at Georgetown University on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited Daily WireEditor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro’s controversial appearance at the University of California, Berkeley on September 14 as a prime example of how the Left attempts to shut down free speech in America.

Sessions began the segment of his speech by referring to the leftist, violent group Antifa as “Orwellian-named”:

The Orwellian-named antifascist protestors have successfully shut down numerous campus speaker events in recent months with violent riots. Berkeley was reportedly forced to spend $600,000 and have an overwhelming police presence to simply prove that the mob was not in control of their campus, the “home of free speech.” In advance, the school offered counseling, in advance of this speech they offered counseling to any students or faculty whose sense of safety or belonging was threatened by a speech from Ben Shapiro, a 33-year-old Harvard-trained lawyer, who has frequently been targeted by anti-Semites for his Jewish faith and who vigorously condemns hate speech from the Left or the Right.

Well, in the end, Mr. Shapiro spoke to a packed house, and to my knowledge, no one fainted; no one was unsafe; no one needed counseling

“I hope,” Sessions joked.

He continued, “Yet after this small victory for free speech, a student speaking to a reporter said, in reaction, ‘I don’t think Berkeley should host any controversial speakers on either side.’ That, perhaps, would be the worst lesson to draw from that episode, I firmly believe.”

Shapiro’s Berkeley speech has been viewed well over two million times on YouTube.  DailyWire

Video:  Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks on campus free speech at Georgetown Law

Grandstanding.  Is Georgetown Law faculty protesting against free speech?

Georgetown Law Profs. issue error-riddled statement before AG Sessions speaks on campus.  Who needs fact.

A statement signed by 30 faculty members of Georgetown University protesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech on campus Tuesday contained multiple falsehoods.

Sessions spoke at Georgetown’s law school about free speech Tuesday, and the statement was released prior to his speech as an act of protest.

“We acknowledge our colleague’s right to invite Attorney General Sessions to speak on campus,” the letter, signed mostly by law school faculty, stated. “However, we, the undersigned, condemn the hypocrisy of Attorney General Sessions speaking about free speech.”

The letter went on to say, “Sessions’ own office is currently prosecuting Desiree Fairooz for unlawful conduct; her alleged crime is laughing for a few seconds during Sessions’ Senate confirmation hearings last January and then loudly protesting her unlawful arrest.”

However, the office prosecuting Desiree Fairooz is the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colombia, which was led at the time by Channing Phillips, an Obama appointee.  Read more of the errors in the Georgetown Law Profs. statement at DailyCaller

Black Pastors Rally In Washington For Attorney General Nominee Jeff Sessions

The leftist desire to paint Republicans as racist.  Jeff Sessions was targeted with faux racism today.

A group of black pastors Monday criticized African-American opponents of attorney general nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions for demonizing the Alabama Republican, instead characterizing him as someone who shows “respect and care for people of all races.”

The ministers are holdout Sessions supporters in a much larger crowd of opponents among Southern black clergy and African-American and civil rights groups, including the North Carolina Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Alabama NAACP and the activist group PICO, which uses congregations and churches to help in community organizing.

“There is an attempt by some to demonize people and call them racist when there is actually no proof for it,” Evangelical Bishop Harry Jackson said at a Capitol Hill news conference. “Let me say clearly, Sen. Sessions is not a racist.”

Jackson, the pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md., said Sessions “worked to bankrupt the KKK in Alabama with a $7 million judgment,” and helped to desegregate the state’s public school system. USAToday
