Yes, our Shelby County Representative, Steve Cohen, went on CNN to express more of his conspiracy theories. This time, it’s against the National Guard stationed in DC for the inauguration.
He has concerns over security! Cohen said, “The National Guard is 90 some-odd percent male; and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden … there are probably not more than 25% of the people there protecting us that voted for Biden.”
So he thinks these people ought to be checked out. Do they watch Fox News? Did they support Donald Trump? He wants them vetted by looking at their Facebook and Twitter posts. I guess if one did, they should be ousted! What’s next? Internment camps?
Someone on Twitter named Tom Elliott suggested that “To ensure Rep. Cohen’s safety all we need to do now is simply fire all of the non-minority National Guardsmen and then additionally screen if any have watched Fox News recently and then fire them too.”
And Matt Whitlock added, “Never forget that this guy brought day-old Kentucky fried chicken to a House hearing and ate it for a made-for-tv stunt.”
If that’s not enough, Cohen tweeted, “I hate Donald Trump. He’s caused nearly 400,000 to die of coronavirus. He’s wreaked deadly havoc and destruction in the Capitol I work in and love. He’s destroyed the faith people should have in our government. He’s been a crook for FOUR years and I HATE him. #SayonaraCrook”
That’s who represents us in Congress. And has for 14 years.
