As the Democrats continue their “sit in” efforts to remove Second Amendment rights from the American people, they are complaining that the Republican controlled House leadership shut off the TV cameras broadcasting their stunt during the nighttime hours.
But it was Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi herself who refused to allow CSPAN to place independent cameras in the very chamber she now complains has no independent cameras.
Since Wednesday, a group of Democrats have been sitting on the floor of the House of Representatives demanding that the lower chamber take up consideration of a list of gun banning bills they want passed. The Republicans — who are currently the controlling majority — have denied the request and won’t schedule any time to debate these anti-Second Amendment bills. So, during the night of June 22, the GOP controlled leadership shut off the House-sponsored TV cameras that were broadcasting the sit in.
Naturally the Democrats cried foul over the Republicans turning off their TV coverage and began to claim that the House floor needs independently controlled TV cameras, not cameras controlled by Republicans.
But as the Law Newz blog reminds its readers, this is all a supreme hypocrisy because in 2007 venerable cable news outlet CSPAN petitioned Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi when she ran the House of Representatives, asking her to allow them to put their own cameras in the Capital in order to broadcast what went on there. Pelosi denied their request.
Yet, today Pelosi is screaming bloody murder that there aren’t independent cameras on the floor of the House, even though she herself blocked the effort to have independent cameras put on the floor of the House.
One thing is sure about this supposed “sit in,” it used to be that citizens would have sit ins to protest governments in order to insure the rights of the people. Now government is having sit ins to protest the people and take away their rights. This world is TRULY upside down.
