Paul Ryan Bans the 1st

Remember a bit ago when Democrats on the House floor were shouting:

SHAME!  SHAME!  SHAME!

And, people outside gathered and screamed at Republicans to

DO YOUR JOB!  DO YOUR JOB!

Chanting, because Paul Ryan and House Republicans were shamelessly doing the work of a group of NRA lobbyists who demanded they do their bidding.  Demanded they NOT ban suspected terrorists from stocking up on firearms.

Demanded we NOT expand background checks so terrorists can’t buy weapons of war in our stores.

Demanded we not ban terrorists from flying on US passenger planes.

The Republicans buckled to everything the lobbyists in the swamp told them to do.

Democrats finally had enough.  They quickly organized and mounted a filibuster and a sit-in to prevent the GOP from opening the door to terrorists – foreign and domestic.  They took their gloves off and fought to prevent the Right from ensuring the next, and the next terrorist tragedy in our homeland.

You’ll remember that this all followed the tragedy in Florida when a clinically-deranged psychopath with was able to acquire an assault rifle and murdered over 50 people.  Over fifty innocent revelers out enjoying life and the fruits of their labors lost their lives because it’s too easy for potential terrorists to arm themselves.

Lobbyists went into overdrive and herded up their Republican chain gang.

You’ll remember that Paul Ryan did as the NRA told him, then tried to hide the shame by trying to whitewash it from history.  If only he could hide the  Republican  allegiance to the Gun Lobby, no one would bother him about it. First rule of fight club, and all.

You’ll remember Ryan ordering CSPAN to black out their cameras, but that it didn’t work out quite how the Obstructionist Republican Ryan hoped it would.  House members, armed with the App,”Periscope”, kept up a live-feed of the proceedings that eventually, CSPAN ran live.  Republicans weren’t able to hide their shame from We the People.

It was inspiring to millions of onlookers, as they  cheered the rebel alliance on.  Sanity and the will of the people will be heard.  Right?

Not so fast.  Like with everything else, the corporatist extremists of the Fascist majority Congress created a loophole.  They’d just make it illegal to film those who are supposed to be working for us to do what we elected them to do.   They’d outlaw freedom of speech in order to stop their dark ways from being witnessed.  They did it by banning the 1st Amendment and going ahead and declaring a little war against the Internet.

This cannot stand.  Fascists breed in the dark.

Light is a disinfectant.  Burn their shadows to dust, as is your destiny.
