This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re making fun of congress cause we can. Honestly, with the behavior of our elected officials as of late, how could we NOT point out the ever-expanding hypocrisy spewing forth from the Right?
This week all but 6 Republican senators voted against creating a bipartisan committee to investigate the January 6th terrorist attack on the Capitol Building. Republicans would much rather sweep the attack under the rug and some have even gone so far as to say the Trump-backed mob were simply “tourists” having a leisurely stroll around the building. What kinda tourism are they promoting these days in Washington? When’s the last time you tried to overthrow a government on your vacation? C’mon Republicans, quit the crazy talk.
Oh and speaking of crazy, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz just can’t help themselves, can they? After a week of spewing vile, anti-Semitic rhetoric and refusing to wear a mask on the congressional floor, Greene has yet to be removed from office and is still on her grand “America First” tour with child-diddler and pedo-trafficker, Matt Gaetz. They’re still shilling The Big Lie at every twist and turn and have no qualms getting grandma riled up at the nursing home. Grandma needs rest, y’all. Not this mess.
The duo’s tour has garnered quite a bit of attention from protestors, but they’re not the kind of protestors you might expect. In fact, other registered Republicans are protesting the two as they watch their beloved GOP tear itself apart. What a glorious sh*tshow.
And if national-level politics weren’t tricky enough, who is keeping tabs on what the states are up to these days in terms of anti-transgender legislation? Considering 33 states have introduced over 100 anti-trans bills, state-level congressional leaders are being just as slimy as their national counterparts. Anti-trans bills have been introduced in all southern states, including right here in the Carolinas. Texas is boasting 12 such bills and Tennessee has put forth 11. And as awful as our bills are here in the Carolinas, wait til you hear what Alabama wants to do to their transgender citizens. Ignorance runs rampant in this sea of red.
So tune in hear it all this week as we unpack, poke and mock these crazy congressional calamities.
