The legislature of the state of Tennessee is now powerless. Earlier, three of its members decided that they did not want to address the issues that the remainder of the body wanted to deliberate on that day. They led protesters into the chamber, and using bullhorns, they wrested control of the days agenda from the other 96 members of the legislative body, refusing to yield the floor. When the 99 members of that body overwhelmingly voted to censure the three by expelling two of them, those who were removed and their followers screamed about democracy.

Those people had their way, with the city of Nashville unanimously voting to send one of the expelled members right back. He reentered the legislature, even more disruptive and defiant than before. In his return speech, he DARED the members of the legislature to try and stop him, and effectively declared that the members of the Tennessee legislature are now his bitches. (I would post a video of that speech, but I can’t stand the way that he talks for long enough to do so. The way that he is imitating Martin Luther King, Jr. by drawing out some of the words is annoying and makes me want to throw my laptop.)

The entire legislature now looks like an impotent group of horse’s asses. They turned him into a martyr, and are now running scared at the accusations of racism.

This entire series of events guarantees that the legislature WILL discuss whatever he wants them to discuss, when he wants to discuss it. If they do not, he will again disrupt the meeting with a bullhorn, and there isn’t a thing that anyone can do about it. Gun control? Trans rights? Reparations? All of it is on the table, should Justin Jones decide that it will be so.

Now one would think that turnabout is fair play. The Republicans can attempt to do the same, grabbing a bullhorn and hijacking the legislature when they can’t get their way, but if there is anything that we have learned from the reactions to 2020’s BLM riots and J6, it is this: there are two sets of rules in this country. The Republicans simply don’t have the balls to realize that they are being played. They still believe that there are rules, and principles, and have a concept of shame and a sense of fair play.

Those things are all luxuries that we can no longer afford. The war has been joined, and until Republicans realize that this is a winner take all bare knuckled brawl in a back alley and not a boxing match following Marquis de Queensbury rules of decorum, they will continue to bend over and be the left’s bitches. Once this system is seen to work in Tennessee, other states will fall in similar fashion.

Just expel him again. Yeah, I know, ‘you can’t expel him for the same reason!’

To which my response would be: ‘Whatever.’

    Divemedic · April 11, 2023 at 7:50 am

    I don’t think they have the political will. Besides, doing it again will result in him being reinstated again and will just backfire, IMO.

      Toastrider · April 11, 2023 at 9:43 am

      They had the will to eject him in the first place.

      But we’ll see, one way or the other.

    As a resident of Tennessee, I can tell you Nashville is a purple blight on an otherwise pleasantly red state. Don’t take for granted what some dindu does in nashvegas…. same as what you see in memphis, stays in memphis. Its not safe for them to leave the enclave, if you catch my drift.

File charges of disruption and place a restraining order on. He shows up, arrest him and cool his jets in jail. So many people want to play flag football when 1980’s LA Raiders-style football being played…..

Ok, so this mutha fucka wants to style himself as an mlk knockoff? Give him the whole experience of that sanctimonious, whore beating, plagiarizing piece of shit. Besides, with all the shootings in TN lately, maybe he’ll be in the wrong place at the right time. Since trashville is his home district, so his odds of getting popped randomly are non-zero anyway. And if he’s a friend of the governor, he might want to watch his ass anyway. Competing agendas may decide he’s expendable, and the left always gets around to eating it’s own.

Actually, I have a dream that politicians being found sans a pulse, while still on top of some whore in a hotel room, will become a regular occurrence, with attendant wall to wall news coverage. Couldn’t be a more fitting way for them to go out. And I have no need to judge them by either their character or their skin color. They’re politicians, ergo they are scum of the earth.

And they will hand wring and hemhaw about civility and the high road right up to the gallows.

Republicans need to be the party of the underdog so they never actually have to do anything beyond promise and hold out the money bag.

    Big Ruckus D · April 11, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Ding ding ding. We have a winnah!

    Which is why these problems will not be solved by republicants. They will be addressed by others having so such party affiliation.

      FYI, you misspelled repubelicunts.

    Divemedic · April 11, 2023 at 2:13 pm

    Like the NRA. They ask for money year after year, but don’t accomplish anything other than send you emails about the leftist boogieman coming to take your guns, who can only be stopped by your money.

Jonesy · April 11, 2023 at 3:03 pm

There has to be a law on the books somewhere outside of house decorum they could get this guy on….have him arrested.

Aside from that, if Republicans have the majority, cancel business for the day when they get disruptive. Walk out. Rinse/repeat until they follow the rules. Go on TV, explain why the people’s business isn’t getting done. Be prepared for the spin, but don’t anyways.

    Jonesy · April 11, 2023 at 3:04 pm

    * do it anyways

TCK · April 11, 2023 at 4:01 pm

Next time he starts being insurrectionistly disruptive, they just need to have him gunned down with an execution shot to the back.

If it was good enough for Ashli Babbit, its good enough for a demonrat.

Barefoot Peckerwood · April 11, 2023 at 7:47 pm

Best thing that could happen is for him to be come a statistic of the13%.

Miguel GFZ · April 12, 2023 at 4:41 am

Truthfully? Nashville deserves a good dose of BLM riots. Maybe some balls will grow out of it or it will simply collapse into a Portland with a southern accent and fake Country Music.

Either way, I still try to avoid it as much as possible.

    Tennessee Budd · April 12, 2023 at 2:00 pm

    It’s already there. I don’t go to Trashville unless I’m being paid to. I’ll go for work, but otherwise I stay away. It’s a shithole & has been for some time.

Learned something today! The guy who published the Queensberry Rules, the 9th Marquis de Queensbury (he didn’t write them but established the rules under his athletics club) was the guy who brought down Oscar Wilde because he was buggering his son.

He publicly called him out, Wilde sued him for defamation, and in his defense he was prepared to call up several male prostitutes as witnesses. Wilde knew he’d lose the trial and dropped the suit; Queensbury counter-sued Wilde for the costs of his attorneys and private detectives spent in his defense, and won that.

Wilde lost everything covering those costs and then got busted for violating the decency laws of the time and spent two years in prison, promptly going into exile in France afterwards with broken health and reputation.

Sooo… maybe the Republicans SHOULD be fighting this one on “Marquis de Queensbury” rules… just the ones the Marquis used on his political enemies vs. those of honor used in the twenty-four foot ring. Sodomy charges won’t stick, but I’d bet there’s enough legally and morally actionable skeletons in Democrat closets that could be dragged out into the sunlight.,_9th_Marquess_of_Queensberry

Politics in a word:
Republicans: fake
Democrats: gay
