Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) brought the heat to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on the House floor during a debate on the Democrats’ “Lynching bill.”
Congressman Gohmert wanted to add an amendment that would make the bill—which had been “watered down”—much stronger, more powerful, and wholly serving justice for the crime of lynching.
Gohmert was arguing for life in prison or the death penalty for anyone who “lynches” another person.
Currently, the Democrats’ bill is very weak, with only an “up to 10 years for conspiracy” penalty. Gohmert wanted to make the bill —which is to be named after Emmett Till— better, stronger, and more deserving of his name… But Nadler refused, proving once again that Democrats are not truly interested in making real positive changes for the African American community.
This is just all for show and typical pandering. Isn’t that a shame? You can watch the video below:
This is just further proof that the Democrats aren’t really interested in helping black Americans. All they want to do is the bare minimum in order to squeak by and then say “look what we did…” when there’s so much more they could be doing. So much more…as Rep. Gohmert so brilliantly proposed and proves. The reality of the situation is that Democrats don’t want to make real changes, because they need to keep black Americans victimized in order to maintain political power.
