The GOP doesn’t mention that school board members are parents, too. All parents are created equal, but some are more equal than others.
Lefty journos are either (1) dishonest or (2) not very bright (or both).— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 27, 2021
The parent was doing the Nazi salute because he was calling the authoritarian school board Nazis—evil, bad & abusive.
And yes, calling someone a Nazi is very much protected by the First Amendment. https://t.co/35lyiQpinN
School officials are parents, too. The GOP says they don’t matter, either.
"GOP Senators Accused Merrick Garland of 'Chilling' Parents in School Board Memo. The DOJ Memo Doesn't Mention Parents."— Adam Klasfeld (@KlasfeldReports) October 27, 2021
Unpacking the chorus of outrage surrounding a memo—and what the single-page document actually says, @lawcrimenews. https://t.co/G0CowDZ8Qy
"And that’s the way it is.”**
Having said: "Thank God you are not on the Supreme Court. You should resign in disgrace" and refusing to let Garland answer his questions, Cotton throws a tantrum and leaves when Garland says "We are only trying to prevent violence against school officials." https://t.co/dAHhc5Qdsl— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) October 27, 2021
Combining all of these makes your statement/opinion even more bulletproof. End of story. Period. That's the tea. Make no mistake. Full stop. *mic drop*— Davvy (@david_ottertun) October 27, 2021
I wonder if Garland is as ineffective a spokesman as he seems to me but I'm really bad at figuring out what will work with people. If I were good at that it wouldn't surprise me when Republicans' staged theatrics are as effective as they sometimes are.ReplyDelete
Cruz defending Nazi salutes in the United States should be a lot more damaging to him than I have any reason to believe it will be. My parents who both served in WWII would have been amazed at how bad it's gotten. I'm glad they're not alive to see this.
