"The office of Sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement. We must never erode this historic office" : Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaking at the National Sheriff's Association winter conference in DC. @vicenews pic.twitter.com/gPS6AbkS30— Tess Owen (@misstessowen) February 12, 2018
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.— Brian Schatz (@brianschatz) February 12, 2018
Jeff Sessions literally called sheriffs a 'critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement'.— Brian Krassenstein🐬 (@krassenstein) February 12, 2018
WTF is happening America??
How is this right?
How is this American?
Important to note that he could have very likely been referring to the organizational structures of policing from Britain that the US adopted. Still, he should know better than to use such loaded language— Tess Owen (@misstessowen) February 12, 2018
For this tweet I am being told I am a racist, a ghoul and that I deserve to die. So I deleted the tweet. That's where we are.— Bari Weiss (@bariweiss) February 12, 2018
