The art of “protesting” and airing grievances has become a brutal affair, as left-wing groups get more vicious in their assaults on the Trump administration.
The latest attack is aimed at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and comes in the form of an image projected on the Department of Justice building, featuring the man wearing a KKK robe.
Way to keep it classy, right?
According to The Independent:
Stunning visuals depicting Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a Ku Klux Klan robe have been projected onto iconic Washington buildings including the Department of Justice building.The projections, created by activist and artist Robin Bell, showed Mr. Sessions with the infamous white hood alongside some of his past statements that have been pointed to as insensitive to racist struggles.
“I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot,” one of the projections reads, a close approximation to a comment Mr. Sessions made while investigating a case against Klansmen as a US attorney in Alabama in the 1980s. Mr. Sessions later characterized the comment as a joke, which the other attorneys present at the time agree with.Other projections criticized Mr. Sessions for his perceived role in the decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey. Mr. Sessions had recused himself from investigations into the potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, and Mr. Comey had refused to stop those investigations. Though he recused himself, Mr. Sessions later wrote a memo supporting Mr. Comey’s ouster.
Mr. Bell also projected images onto FBI headquarters with images of Rex Tillerson, Nikki Haley, and Scott Pruit. The projections suggested that Mr. Trump be impeached and said that the public needs to see the memo — likely referring to a reported note written by Mr. Comey describing interactions he had with the President before he was fired.

Mr. Bell recently told the Huffington Post that he hopes his projected messages of resistance will one day reflect that there were plenty of dissidents to Mr. Trump’s presidency.
“Maybe in the history books, it’ll show that we were not for this,” he said.
Totally disrespectful and uncalled for.
You can absolutely disagree with Trump and his administration politically without getting nasty and petty.
By associating Sessions with wicked hatemongers like the KKK, Bell is not just making a political statement — he’s doing some serious damage to the Attorney General’s public image.
This is why so many have turned away from the left and its unsavory tactics, as they lack decency and the ability to articulate an argument.
