Are our wonderful elected officials who do not want to meet with their constituents and go the step further to insult them and distort their exercise of democracy.
Rep. Peter King (completely unwarranted Wing Nut – NY) says that screaming protesters “diminishes democracy.”
“There are people who are just angry, they’re angry that Trump won, that Hillary lost. There’s others who are being, I guess, egged on, if you will. So I’m assuming that they’re all legitimate, but to me it just does not serve a purpose. It really diminishes democracy if you’re gonna show up at a meeting to just scream and yell,” he told AM970’s Joe Piscopo Thursday, in an interview surfaced by CNN.
It makes it louder and less pleasant for Vichy Republicans like King that have gone along with Trump’s coup. This is how King works when he’s on a conservative outlet like Joe Piscopo’s show on Salem radio Network, vs. the more reasonable legislative mask he puts on when he’s on mainstream media. He is a two faced fascist enabler, which is inexcusable from Blue New York.
Rep. Vicki Hartzler from rural Missouri called meeting with her constituents “unproductive” right now. So she’s a coward. But she went further and said that the Woman’s March was 3 million people on the fringes of the Democratic Party who largely held signs that were pornographic.
“What has not been reported is the reality of a lot of their signs and a large proportion of the message was very, very graphic,” she claimed. “It was very pornographic. Their signs, their posters, it was pornographic is all it was, and no media has talked about that, and it was very sad.”
Oh just fuck you!
Florida is a big state, this is the time of year that a Senator from a state like Florida might hold a series of town halls to hear from their constituents. He might even be eager to do so since he had vowed not to run for re-election (he said he hated the Senate), and then did a 180 and ran and was swept up on the Trump-mania, that he denounced, then joined. Rubio could join the resistance again and be a hero, but that’s not what Little Marco is made of.
And finally Worst Person in the World Emeritus, NRA Shill Wayne LaPierre. Who says the protesters across the country are both being paid to show up and disrupt but also:
“They’re angry, they’re militant, and they’re willing to engage in criminal violence to get what they want.”
Hm, so they’re desperate to destroy things to get what they want, but they’ll only do it for a paycheck. So confusing.
