It’s embarrassing that there is any hesitation on this. How can we have different consequences for different kinds of bigotry or incitement? This should be treated equally and consistently. Incite against a member and you’re stripped. End of story. She refuses to even apologize.
AOC told me she’s disappointed in D leaders for not punishing Boebert "I think this should be pretty simple: that we should have the same standards for everybody. The less consistently we treat these issues, the more it encourages people to try to see what they can get away with”

It’s a pretty simple question: does the House accept violent Islamophobia or not? We should feel ashamed every time @IlhanMN or anyone is forced to defend themselves against threats in their workplace alone bc the institutions they serve in won’t protect them. It’s messed up.

This is the same person who live tweeted the Speaker’s location on Jan 6th knowing that violent white supremacists were searching for her. She has demonstrated a pattern of creating conditions for the people around her to get hurt, without remorse. And she could do so again.

From the party that lead January 6th should we expect any decency at this point? Absolutely not.

Ask Steve Scalise about incitement.

Oh ok. Since someone shot Steve Scalise it's perfectly fine for Republicans to incite violence against people who had nothing to do with his shooting. And believe me, we've all heard Scalise's story over and over and over.

There is a difference when someone outside of Congress voices a disagreeable position on a member of Congress or the Executive branch, and when a member of Congress repeatedly goes after another member with false claims. Not fond of either, but there is a big difference.
