What if they were just tourists?
Hmmm. They skipped step 3: Burn down State House and blame democrats for it. I guess they figure they’ll make do with a protest they call a riot.
Re: decorum, just leaving [this](https://youtu.be/YozVp1-49Mo) here for your reference. At least the three in Tennessee stand for something meaningful, rather than ridiculous partisan point-scoring. The Republicans are leading the race to the bottom; it’s the only race the modern GOP can reliably win.
This is fascism enabled by partisan gerrymandering, given the green light by an illegitimate and corrupt Supreme Court.
They are in the “abandoning democracy” part of saving their twisted vision of conservativism.
Even BBC is covering it. Usually when you try to be skeezy you don’t want to draw world-wide attention.
Putting your pettiness and corruption on show for everyone to see.
They are [debating the motion on Justin Jones right now](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZK–_x3gIU). I’ve been listening while doing some paperwork. It’s eye-opening. Jones is an expert rhetorician, and the way he’s speaking suggests an uncompromising conscience.
The Democratic members are protesting on a number of grounds – protesting the show of video evidence and breaking state rules to take video, asking for grace, pointing out how out-of-scale throwing someone out is, and pointing out hypocrisy.
The Republican members have tried asking some very pointed questions, which Jones has responded to with decorum and aplomb. They are trying to construe his actions as “disorder” and “attacks,” when it’s clear that neither are the case.
I’d love to be surprised, but it seems clear the Speaker and Republican members are hell-bent on expulsion.
Republicans claiming to uphold constitutional rights vote to further disenfranchise 200,000 voters.
Sooo when do we intervene with these fascists?
They violated the laws of doublespeak.
These 3 dems took part in a riotous/insurrectionist violent storming of the house in order to stall the proceedings of the house in order to implement unconstitutional tyranny on the population of Tennessee. I’m sure they would get the same treatment for a violent riot in support of any other unconstitutional cause like pro-slavery or pro-censorship. This would be like british people storming the parliament in support of cruel and unusual punishment. No you can’t have that. yes you are bad for wanting it they way you want it done. yes you are supposed to be punished for it in a just society.
Soooooo… instead of action on guns, Republicans in Tennessee want to silence people who are demanding that they pursue action on guns. Well, we can’t say they aren’t doing anything now. They are working in the exact opposite direction they should be
They are corrupt asf. I’be been watching it live, and how they fucked up by showing that clip, its like they have selective dementia.
Seems they led, with bullhorns, a major disruption – an “insurrection” by Democrat standards. I’m thinking this was a really serious violation of the rules and it’s no surprise that serious consequences followed.
