'Tis An Ill Wind That Blows No Good

(US Rep. James Clyburn [D - SC6])

John Venlet links to this story about Congressman James Clyburn's reaction to the Arizona shootings:

A top House Democrat said the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) should change how members of Congress are screened at airports.

“I really believe that that is the place where we feel the most ill at ease, is going through airports,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who serves as assistant minority leader in the House, said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Clyburn called for the Transportation Security Administration, which administers airport security checkpoints, to interact “a little better” with the Capitol Hill Police.

“We’ve had some incidents where TSA authorities think that congresspeople should be treated like everybody else,” he said. “Well, the fact of the matter is, we are held to a higher standard in so many other areas, and I think we need to take a hard look at exactly how the TSA interact with members of Congress.”

Those poor Congresspeople.

Thank heaven some good can come out of these homicides.

More here, here and here.

Here's the Charleston Post and Courier interview referenced above.

Fortunately, given his call for free-speech restrictions, it's not like the Congressman's daughter is an FCC Commissioner or anything like that.

Moreover, Congressman Clyburn has a proven record of statesmanship and veracity.

And I am sure that both he and his daughter are Constitutional oathkeepers in their hearts, especially with regard to the First Amendment:

Do you understand yet?

They sure like pushing a nation already on edge in so many ways.

In case you missed it, here's Ms. Clyburn's racist payback diatribe justifying Net "Neutrality" and the effective socialization of Internet providers.

You're welcome, CA. Thanks for all you do.

Gotta wonder how the Clyburns feel about this. They must be conflicted, what with the doubleplusgood prole conditioning being disproportionately applied to African-American elementary schoolers. Well, they excel at doublethink:

TSA screening is for the "little people", i.e., the taxpayers who SO FAR have put up with this attitude. May I suggest that people politely tell him how condescending his attitude is. His official website: http://clyburn.house.gov/

You could CHOKE on the irony...

The Representative who read the 1st Amendment in Congress is shot by the classic "lone gunman" within hours of the reading. Now the tyrants and traitors in CONgress are using her shooting as the justification to gut the 1st Amendment...
