Three Tennessee lawmakers were subject to expulsion over a gun protest — and the left is claiming racism as the motive.
However, Jason Whitlock sees it as nothing more than “political theater.”
He says he “thought of 'Paradise Lost' yesterday when three Tennessee politicians stepped on the dead bodies of three 9-year-olds to elevate themselves as political cult heroes.”
The three he is talking about are Justin Jones, Justin Pearson, and Gloria Johnson.
He claims they “have made themselves the face and victims of the Nashville Covenant School massacre,” when they organized an anti-Second Amendment protest at the House that disrupted work on the floor.
Their protest sparked a Republican-led effort to expel the state lawmakers. They succeeded in expelling Jones and Pearson, but came up one vote short of expelling Johnson.
Jones, who will be reinstated shortly, took to the floor to capitalize on his expulsion.
Standing at the podium, he said, “Just yesterday the House speaker took to national news to condemn us and call for expulsion before any evidence was presented, before any trial happened. And so what we see today is just a spectacle. What we see today is a lynch mob assembled to not lynch me, but our democratic process.”
Jones later went on MSNBC to tell Joy Reid that he was voted out for being an “uppity negro.”
Whitlock says, “It’s just cosplay intended to distract from focusing on what caused a transgender woman to snap and kill Christians.”
Days later in Colorado, police arrested a transgender woman who was allegedly plotting a mass shooting at schools and churches. The suspect, like the Nashville shooter, had also penned a manifesto expressing communist beliefs.
“There might be a pattern here,” Whitlock says.
He asks, “Is it a coincidence that leftists always seem to use dead children to advance their agenda?”
While the mainstream media is pointing at racism and guns as the problem, Whitlock sees it differently.
“School shootings are being used to undermine the Second Amendment. We can protect kids in schools without disarming the American public. If we spent the money we funneled to Ukraine on school safety, we could eliminate mass shootings at schools.”
“Children,” he says, “are being sacrificed to empower the government and undermine the rights of citizens. We’ve lost the American paradise.”
