Another conservative faces public shunning. Liberals grow bolder with their intolerance.

from USAToday

Last weekend, Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell was trying to enjoy breakfast with friends in Miami when he made the unforgivable error of discussing his political beliefs. 

That caught the attention of one of the cafe’s owners, who informed the conservative commentator that his politics weren’t palatable in the restaurant and told the group that “the language they were using was unwelcome in our space.” 

Caldwell, who is Black, took to social media to vent about the incident, and he talked about it on “Fox & Friends Weekend” the next day. Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell says he was asked to leave a restaurant in Miami because of his conservative political views.

“No matter your politics you should not be discriminated against,” he said on Twitter. “I was discriminated against for being a conservative and told to leave a restaurant in North Miami because my politics didn’t ‘align’ with the owner. This is NOT okay.”

On the Fox News segment, Caldwell said the incident was a “grave injustice” and reminiscent of the Jim Crow South. 

First of all, I don't know if I should believe this or not since Fux Nooze lies thru their noses. But assuming it did happen, I think comparing it to Jim Crow was a bit of a stretch.

Greene, Gosar reinstated to committee by GOP-led House after Democrats had removed them

Source: USAToday

WASHINGTON – Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia GOP congresswoman stripped of her committee assignments two years ago by the Democratic-led House following a series of menacing social media posts, has been reinstated by the Republicans who now run the chamber.

Greene was named Tuesday to the Homeland Security Committee, her spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY. 

In addition, Republicans reinstated Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, who similarly had been removed from his committees after being censured in 2021 for posting an anime video that was edited to show him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden.

Gosar was named to the Committee on Natural Resources, according to his spokesperson. 

Both Greene and Gosar could still be added to other committees as House leadership releases more assignments this week.

From the "Stupid Headlines" Dept

In USAToday (today) ,
" What's going to happen in Washington over the next 2 years? Americans don't expect much "

The headline should read:

" Maybe the idea that you just vote for the opposite party at the midterms was a bad idea" instead of asking those same idiots how things will go after they screwed it up.

Any word from the voters of New York's 3rd congressional district?

Why aren't the voters of that district starting a writing campaign against their lying, cheating and stealing congressman they claim they didn't know they voted for? Shouldn't they be going door to door asking each other to write to the speaker of the house to sanction or expel him from the house so they can have someone that only lies a little but really graduated from somewhere?

I have to say that MSNBC's coverage of the 14th speaker vote is awful

I can't watch MSNBC with their horse-race mentality and steve what's his face up there giving all this coverage to a bunch of moronic insurrectionists without ever reminding the viewing audience what these people are really about. Back to Cspan.
