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.
