Liberal Writer Disgraces Himself With Racist Tweet About A Sweet Baby Girl Who Happens To Be The Granddaughter Of Sen. Jeff Sessions

What did she do to him? Not a goddamn thing.

Senate confirmation hearings began today for Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions. As is standard practice, Sen. Sessions’ family accompanied him to the Russell Building’s Kennedy Caucus Room before being introduced by Sens. Richard Shelby and Susan Collins. Seated on the senator’s lap was one of his adorable granddaughters. Unfortunately, as the liberal side of the aisle has disgracefully demonstrated again and again and again and again, there is no inherent understanding or compelling decency that prevents them from using the children of Republican politicians as punchlines to advance a political point of view. It’s like they would actually have to work at not doing so. Today, using a familiar accusation, this boorish behavior was once again evidenced by MTV “culture writer” Ira Madison III in a racist tweet objectifying Sessions’ granddaughter:

baby

This was followed by the kind of word vomit at which the Left excels:

Madison was deservedly excoriated on social media for his tweet. He put up this tweet before protecting his account:

“I often tell jokes, but seeing as bringing up Sessions’ history of racial hatred of Asians is seen as an attack on his grandchild, I deleted[.]”

Anyway, it’s unfortunate that Madison apparently missed John Kerry’s target-rich confirmation hearings:

  1. Don’t tell me that it’s the Right that is racist and bigoted. The same party that brought us the likes of Bull Connor and the KKK, lives on in the disgusting likes of the Ira Madisons of the Democrat party.

  2. Unless they are adults — and even then, unless they deliberately insert themselves into the public discourse — kids should always be out of bounds for this crap. ALWAYS.

    The well-known exception to this, of course, is when it would hurt a Republican. This exception, fortunately, is only taken advantage of by the scum of the earth, like “Mr.” Madison.

  3. Demosthenes,

    It’s always startling to me when I stop and realize that they really don’t see any wrong with using children this way. Like, who doesn’t know it’s indecent??

    Oh. Wait.

  4. Believe it or not, progressives actually do understand and apply the concept of decency — on a regular basis, even. They’re just tribal about it.

    Demosthenes (09f714)

  5. That makes them worse than the person who just doesn’t know.

  6. I would not call Ira Madison III a Progressive. I would call him the kind of guy who ties up and tortures a mentally-handicapped eighteen-year old.

  7. #6… it’s not an either/or situation. He’s progressive scum.

  9. @ Dana, #5:

    Of course it does. They don’t have ignorance for an excuse. They’re just morally stunted people.

  10. At some point in the next four years I see Ira being removed from a flight by a sky marshal.

  13. Did anyone happen to notice that the Ft Lauderdale shooter is an Islamic convert named Aashiq Hammad?

    They should post spoiler alerts on news like that.

  15. An example of why pompous law professors are worthy subjects of derision:

    Prof. John Gross pens and Op Ed in yesterday’s USA Today on why Sessions should not be next AG.

    Begins the piece with a statement that 1400 law professors from 48 states have signed a letter urging the Senate to defeat the nomination of Sessions to be AG, and that the only signature from a professor at the Univ. of Alabama Law School, where Sessions went to school, is his.

    Well well well, isn’t that special.

    But lets peek behind the curtain at Prof. Gross.

    Oh — he joined the Alabama Law School faculty in 2014. In only his 3rd year there as Prof.

    Before that he was Indigent Defense Counsel for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

    Before that he was Visiting Prof and Acting Director of the Syracuse College of Law Criminal Defense Clinic.

    Before that he was a Staff Attorney for the Legal Aid Society of New York.

    I’m sure glad he told us he was on the faculty of the Alabama Law School — noteworthy as it is to the fact that Sessions is a Senator from Alabama — and left out all that other stuff about who Prof. Gross really is.

  17. Dear Mr Trump,

    Please make dueling great again.

  18. That snarky MTV guy probably had actress Lindsay Price on the brain which would make him a perv by extension (hint: famous early 80s TV commercial).

  19. MTV owes its successful beginning to Michael Jackson, which makes him a perv by more than extension.

  20. Ira shoulda learned to play the guitar

    He shoulda learned to play them drums

  25. I have Asian relatives. When my grandmother was worried I’d marry a Japanese girl, my grandfather closed her down. “Young people don’t think that way.” Soon she came around, which just shows even if you’re in your nineties you don’t have to be set in your ways.

  26. My family didn’t have antediluvian attitudes toward dating. I proved that by dating the Dominican chick.

  27. This is just another example of the divide between the Right and the Left, as recently demonstrated by Don Lemon, who believes that people who criticize Obama are in the Klan, but claims that blacks who torture whites are merely lacking in manners.

  28. This was so bad that I thought it was a normal person doing an exaggerated parody of something even a progressive wouldn’t’t do.

  29. Ah yes. I remember those days, where I would be accosted in the aisles of the supermarket or Toys R Us or wherever and be reminded that my own children didn’t look like me. My son took this stuff seriously and hated it, so when the 2000 census came it demanded that we record the ethnicity of the child as viewed by the child itself. So, not wanting to disobey the instructions, I dutifully asked each of my two children what race/ethnicity they considered themselves to be, and that the information was for the Census. My daughter answered “blend” and my son answered “space alien”. After assuring myself that those were indeed the answers they desired, I entered them on the census form. Lo and behold, about two months later, a woman shows up on my doorstep, informs me she is from the Bureau of the Census, shows me her ID, and asks to see my son and daughter. After ascertaining that what was stated on the census form matched their own verbal statement, she made a notation and left. A day later, a much older man showed up, showed similar identification, and asked to see the children. I produced them, and, without saying anything further, he made notations and left.

    Strangely, the left seems quite fixated on dumping people into appropriate buckets. Senator Session’s granddaughter appears quite nicely behaved, and is almost certainly a joy to her grandparents. Hopefully this is a learning situation for the leftie involved — but I doubt it.

  30. They first must divide people to realize their dreams of a divided populace. It’s the way they’ve rolled for several decades now.

  31. As a proud grandfather with two small grandchildren–ages 2 and 3 and a half, they’ll be in my lap any time they want to. As for Madison or whatever the clown’s name is, “Sod off swampy!”
