Rep. Green: Trump ‘No Better’ Than Cross-Burners

In a speech Tuesday on the House floor, impeachment-obsessed Rep. Al Green condemned President Trump for referring to the impeachment inquiry as a “lynching.”

“How dare he do this,” Green declared. “Does he not know the history of lynching in this country? Does he not know that thousands of African-Americans were lynched, mob violence? Does he not know this is the equivalent of murder? How dare the president compare article 2, section 4 of the Constitution, a lawful constitutional process, to mob violence and lynching.”

“Mr. President, do you not understand the history that you are encroaching upon? If you continue to weaponize racism and bigotry, this makes you no better than those who were screaming ‘Blood and soil, Jews will not replace us.’ It makes you no better than them. It makes you no better than those who burned crosses. It makes you no better than those who wear hoods and white robes!”

Green’s constituents deserve a representative with more to offer than hysterical race-baiting.
