A casual reminder that in 1861, 11 Senators and 3 Representatives were expelled from Congress for failing to recognize Lincoln’s election and supporting insurrection.

The guy's a moron. I can't decide if he's worse than my congresswoman, Marjorie Taylor Greene. Of course, that's a pretty low bar...

I saw that and thought the delta should be much much greater.





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

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

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.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

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.

There were only two Republicans who voted with the Democrats: Adam Kinzinger (Illinois) and Liz Cheney (Wyoming).

It's a cult.

There is no rational explanation for what today's Republicans will accept.

Sorta. They left and then were formally expelled for supporting the Confederacy, not because they didn't recognize Lincoln as U.S. President.

. . . and now he'll gleefully fundraise on "being cancelled by Nancy Pelosi and her band of woke socialists."

His brother claims that was the real intent of the original video -- to be used to fund raise from Q crowd.

Democrats just can't get out of their own "woke" way. They're simply handing over the keys to the repugs. Hope many of them get voted out of office next year. They're all as worthless as pile of dollars in hell right now. Almost all of them. On both sides.

When's the last time a sitting congressperson posted a depiction of themselves assaulting another politician, and what happened to them? Then we'll have a point of reference for deciding whether this censure was appropriate to the standards of the House, or just present-day "woke."

I saw this news story earlier tonight and was just floored. Can't believe the Rs are fomenting this kind of hate. Then again...yes I can. Just disgusting.

And also wondering why the Ds just didn't expel this monster. Probably b/c they know they're gonna lose the House and are afeared of retribution. Story of the Ds...always reacting [poorly] and running scared.

Heard on the TV that Gosar retweeted the same exact video AFTER he was censured. Then removed it for a second time a few hours later.
