Federal Judge Attacks Trump As Adopting The Same Rhetoric and Tactics As The KKK

There is a controversy out of the University of Virginia where federal Judge Carlton Reeves gave a scathing speech against President Donald Trump — likening his conduct to that of the Kl Klux Klan and segregationists from the Jim Crow period. The speech (accepting an award) raising troubling issues about Reeves engaging in political speech in violation of core judicial ethical rules.

A U.S. District Court Judge of the Southern District of Mississippi, Reeves is an Obama appointee from 2010. He was receiving the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Law at the University of Virginia and gave a 16-page speech with 130 footnotes.

In the speech, Reeves takes thinly veiled swipes at Trump, using his unmistakable tweets to make historical comparative points:

This judge reminds me of Roger Taney, author of the infamous Dred Scott decision. :thumbsdown:

I wonder how many fake noose vandalism hoaxes he pulled?

We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

The good news is his speech against the President will necessitate a recusal if any case concerning the administration lands in his lap.
"January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again."  --  President Donald J. Trump
