Pennsylvania Republicans cut a lawmaker's mic after he said the state GOP is '100% white'

A Pennsylvania Democrat had his speech cut short on Wednesday after he said the state's Republican lawmakers were "100% white."

The heated moment came during a debate over a Republican proposal to regulate the disposal of fetal remains, one that Democratic lawmakers argued would force women to bury or cremate a miscarried fetus. As USA Today reported, a number of Democratic women spoke against the measure — which Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has promised to veto — by highlighting their own traumatic experiences with miscarriages.

Rep. Brian Sims, a Democrat from Philadelphia, lamented the fact that his colleagues were forced to share such testimony in the state's Republican-controlled House.

"This is just another act in a political theater that has plagued this chamber for far too long," Sims said. "We are a legislature that has met more to remove mask mandates, strip executive emergency powers, and overturn free and fair elections than we have to make strategic investments in Pennsylvania's women, children, and families."

Sims punctuated his remarks with an attack on his Republican colleagues and the demographic makeup of their caucus. The bill, he said, was just another line item in "a grossly, predictably misogynistic agenda — an agenda pursued by a party that is 100% white, in a chamber that is 70% male."

House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler, a Republican, then cut Sims' microphone. "That's enough," he said amid booing from other GOP lawmakers.

Sims was unrepentant.

"Your boos mean nothing to me," he said. "I've seen what you cheer for."

Sims was unrepentant.

"Your boos mean nothing to me," he said. "I've seen what you cheer for."

THAT is a quote right up there with, “…. I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy.”

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Whooooah!

Get outta my head!

That is the exact same thought I had, though mine included 'I'm going to steal that as sig material'.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

He's being generous. The real value is 79% male.

Mittens shared a very similar sentiment in response to the boos he heard from Utah GOP. Sims statement was far more elegant, however!

Wow! Looks like the PA GOP thinks the phrase 'Women of Color' means red pantsuits...
