Lordy, lordy, lordy.
House Republicans are seeking to pass a resolution commending Capitol Police for their professionalism.
While interesting, and probably a sorely needed pat on the back, the REALLY interesting part of the whole thing is in the last paragraph.
Allow me to quote:
“[Patrick] McHenry, who at 30 is the youngest member of Congress, said he is routinely stopped by Capitol Police and asked for identification.
“When I’m not wearing my pin, I am always stopped,” McHenry said in a telephone interview. “I accept that as a due course of security.”
A smoking gun! We now have proof positive of the racism of the Capitol Police! We have independant verification of their racist policies! “Always stopped”, by God.
Here at the LawDog Files we are sure and certain that the NAACP, Danny Glover and the rest will firmly and proudly step forward and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with this other victim of the profiling policies of the Capitol Police.
<---- Congressman Patrick McHenry
Right. Sure they will. About two hours before my legions of flying monkeys complete my quest for world domination.
