Jamie Raskin defends democracy by removing peace activist
Congressman Jamie Raskin decides who is above the law and who isn't
At a pro-democracy rally denouncing January 6 (because that’s what our politicians still do three years later), Jamie Raskin and his crowd held signs that read “NOT ABOVE THE LAW.” And if you foolishly thought that these signs meant that in a democracy, no one is above the law, you’d be wrong.
Only Jamie Raskin gets to decide that.
When Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin silently stood behind Raskin with a similar sign with just one word added, he had her immediately dragged away. “ISRAEL: NOT ABOVE THE LAW” it read. She learned the hard way that if Jamie Raskin do not pronounce it so, then be it not true.
Meanwhile, protesters interrupted another rally this week while a struggling Genocide Joe Biden begged a church for votes. “If you really care about the lives lost here,” they shouted at him. “You should honor the lives lost and call for a ceasefire in Palestine.” The protesters, of course, were removed from the room.
And while the protests all across the globe have been swelling in size this week, corporate media is still doing its best to whitewash Israel’s crimes. “It looks like accidentally a stray bullet found its way into the van,” reported a Sky News host. “And that killed a three-or-four year old young lady.”
We don’t know which is crazier, that the bullet found its own way into the van, or that three year olds are now classified as young ladies. Thanks Sky News, otherwise we’d be worried that Israel just murdered another three-year-old child.
This, and so much more madness (just wait until you hear why Trump should be considered the ‘feminist candidate’) on this week’s Thursday Throwdown. Stick with Katie and Aaron, and hopefully you’ll be able to laugh instead of cry.
