On Monday, the House of Representatives paid respects to the victims of the horrific Texas church shooting with a moment of silence on the House floor. A representative wasn’t having it though and made a despicable political move.
While members of Congress paid their respects, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) boasted to the whole world on a Facebook video that he walked out of a moment of silence on the House floor. Video Below.
Here is the video:
“My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives’ chambers. I respect their right to do that and I myself have participated in many of them. But I can’t do this again, I’ve been to too many moments of silences. In just my short period in congress three of the worst mass shootings in us history have occurred. I will not be silent.”
Lieu then went on to talk to discuss the real reason behind his protest: He used it to push the gun control narrative, blaming guns…not the shooter for the evil act. He brought up past mass shootings and then pushed Democrat gun control policy. He stated:
“I urge us to pass reasonable gun safety legislation, including a universal background check law supported by 80 percent of Americans, a ban on assault rifles and a ban on bump stocks.”
Aha…so just like with disgraceful, National Anthem player protests, Lieu committed a disrespectful protest to push Leftist ideology. There’s a time and place for protesting for political reasons, but during a moment of silence for people who were brutally murdered at the hands of a monster? Unreal.
