JOHN MITCHELL APPOINTS 8 KLAN DEFENSE ATTORNEYS TO CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION WITHIN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT
For those of you old enough to remember......jump into Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine and drift back to 1969. Imagine what would have happened if the headline I posted here appeared on the front page of the New York Times sometime in 1969. A headline reporting that Richard Nixon's Attorney General, John Mitchell had hired and placed 8 former KKK defense attorneys into the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.
Outrage? Revulsion? Rioting? Burning down the Cities?
And who could blame the people rightfully offended by an action that is so questionable, so conflicting, so arrogant, so lacking in common sense? It would have been a really dumb thing to do. History has shown us that Nixon and Mitchell were capable of doing some really dumb things........BUT NOTHING THAT DUMB!!
Now climb back into Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine and return to 2010.
And checkout this headline, AND IT'S A TRUE STORY!!
ERIC HOLDER APPOINTS 8 JIHADIST DEFENSE ATTORNEYS TO NATIONAL SECURITY DIVISION WITHIN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.
Makes me wonder about the job opportunities and income potential for plumbers in Washington these days.
Just my opinion.
This just in from the Revised History Files.
Robert Kennedy, JFK's Attorney General in 1961, has just named Tom Hagen, Bumpy Piscatorre, Anita Bellacrocia and 5 other consiglieres to the Justice Department's Organized Crime Unit.
Hey....it's open season for election paybacks, ya' know?
