Another left wing robot joins the Biden administration. The usual suspects are agog with ideological delirium. Americans are aghast.
FNC: “The Senate confirmed Kristen Clarke as the first Black woman to run the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division in a 51-48 vote Tuesday afternoon. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, voted yes with all Democrats, and Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., did not vote. Vice President Kamala Harris ceremonially swore in Clarke as assistant attorney general for civil rights on Tuesday evening. The Civil Rights Division under Clarke is expected to investigate policing throughout the country, already leading civil investigations into the Minneapolis Police Department and a probe in Louisville, Ky., where Breonna Taylor was killed. And as a number of states move to enact voting restrictions, the department is expected to investigate voting laws for discrimination under the Voting Rights Act.
“Clarke’s confirmation was controversial because of her prolific Twitter use, where she would often launch broadsides against some senators, including Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska. Clarke also has a history of controversial writings, including a 2020 Newsweek op-ed headlined: “I Prosecuted Police Killings. Defund the Police…” Clarke has also said President Trump’s judicial nominees are ‘white male extremists.’
Kristen Clarke’s brazen disdain for law enforcement is one of the reasons why she should not be leading the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.
She is completely unfit to serve at the DOJ and I strongly urge my colleagues to reject her nomination.

Symone Sanders, senior advisor to the veep, called Clarke’s swearing-in a “historic moment…She is a timeless champion of equal justice. She has done groundbreaking and courageous legal advocacy and enforcement work, in virtually every area of civil rights, including voting rights, religious freedom, gender equity, educational equity, LGBTQ rights, criminal justice reform, immigration rights,” she said. She also likes puppies, long walks on the beach, and hates mean people.
“Our nation is a healthier place when we respect the rights of all communities. In every role I’ve held, I have worked for and with people of all backgrounds — regardless of race, national origin, religion and disability status,” Clarke wrote. “I’ve listened deeply to all sides of debates, regardless of political affiliation. There is no substitute to listening and learning in this work, and I pledge to you that I will bring that to the role if confirmed.” Ah yes, this vicious racist who opposes people on their gender and color listens “deeply to all sides of debates, regardless of political affiliation.” What absolute horse manure. This is just another cog in the Bolshefication of the executive branch. She will use her position to pursue bigoted and sexist measures as rabid and hateful as would Bull O’Connor or Orval Faubus, look it up, in a similar position today. Thus the Democrat administration goes proudly goose stepping backwards in American history. Back to a time when people were lynched for their color and people were denied opportunities because of their gender. That is the ideology of Kristen Clarke. That is the damage to America of the Biden administration.
