He was on a roll.

Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas did not pull his punches on Tuesday. The conservative Westerner gave both rhetorical barrels to those Bolshevik harpies Maxine Waters and Rashida Tlaib. It was over law enforcement and the Chauvin trial. But it goes deeper than that. Men like Roy are American patriots trying to defend this country from vicious enemies of this nation like Waters and Tlaib.

The stakes here are not just political oneupmanship or debate points. Roy knows that Waters and Tlaib are actively seeking the destruction of the Republic to replace it with a racist authoritarian socialist regime. Roy and Republicans are fighting this against the arrayed powers of the culture, media, congressional majorities, and the White House. It is not an easy fight, but one we must win.

FNC: “Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, unloaded on the idea of defunding the police as well as Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for their rhetoric surrounding the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis. The Texas congressman did not mince any words during a House Judiciary Committee markup on Tuesday, which focused on a multitude of bills, including the ‘COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.’

“Roy pushed back on progressive claims that no cuts to law enforcement were happening by pointing to Austin, Texas, which has seen a rise in homelessness since the city’s police department funding was ‘slashed.’ The Texas congressman also chastised Democrats in Congress for blowing through ‘$6 trillion in a year doing nothing’ with their massive COVID spending bills before laying into Waters – the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee – for her now-infamous comments from over the weekend.”

“And then to listen to members of this body say, and I quote, ‘I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty,’” Roy said, quoting Waters. “‘And if we don’t, we cannot go away. We’ve got to stay on the streets. We get more active. We’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure they know that we mean business.”

“How irresponsible can a member of Congress be that to say that and then to have the judge in the case that the whole nation is watching say that that might throw the case out on appeal,” said Roy. “That is what we’re talking about.”

Roy then turned his sights on the dimwitted duo. “We are talking about the quote by another member of this body: ‘It wasn’t an accident, Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist. I’m done with those who condone government-funded murder,’” he said quoting Tlaib, repeating the phrase ‘government-funded murder.’ No more policing, incarceration, or militarization. It can’t be reformed,’” Roy continued quoting. “To say this is irrelevant? It’s the central issue of of our day right now to make sure this country is safe!”
