Liberals Are Crying ‘Fascist!’ At Republicans Doing What DEMS Did in 2008

As Democrats protested that Americans still have gun rights by, literally, sitting lazily on their Obamas, liberals went on social media to whine about Republicans shutting down the cameras.

Those tyrants!! Fascists!! How dare they shut down democracy just like the Democrats did in 2008!!

Oh wait.. what?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats adjourned the House, turned off the lights and killed the microphones, but Republicans are still on the floor talking gas prices.

Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders opposed the motion to adjourn the House, arguing that Pelosi’s refusal to schedule a vote allowing offshore drilling is hurting the American economy. They have refused to leave the floor after the adjournment motion passed at 11:23 a.m., and they are busy bashing Pelosi and her fellow Democrats for leaving town for the August recess.

At one point, the lights went off in the House and the microphones were turned off in the chamber, meaning Republicans were talking in the dark. But as Rep. John Shadegg (R-Ariz..) was speaking, the lights went back on and the microphones were turned on shortly afterward.

IN fact, what they did was much worse because they shut out the lights AND back then they didn’t have the kind of technology where Republicans could have broadcast themselves from their iPhones. And they totally made John Boehner cry too!!!

But we’re the fascists, right?

Idiots.

DO NOT Have Yourself A Trump Father’s Day!!

    Off shore drilling vrs a vote on sensible gun laws. Yup I can see how they are the simular.

  • theGOONIES

    The only sensible gun law is to make it illegal for any Democrat to own a gun. They not only have proven they are incapable of such a responsibility, they are also almost 100% the perp in every mass killing.

    Typical liberal moron. Can’t argue the actual point (in this case Dems pretending to be outraged by a behjavior they not only engaged in, but did worse), so pretend the point is something else completely and wail away at that strawman.
    .
    Oh, and this isn’t a “gun law” debate, it’s a due process debate. You don’t even know which amendment this is about.

    Looks like a double standard to me.
