Just one week after Congressman Clyburn took an oath to protect the constitution, the long term Democratic Party Representative from South Carolina trashed the document. Today Clyburn appeared on the Ed Schultz radio show and cast a wide net of blame for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.
“All [of] this stuff taking place in the Chambers the other day, when the Constitution was being read — all that stuff is uncalled for,” Rep. Clyburn said. And added there may be a “direct link” between Sharron Angle’s “Second Amendment remedies” comment and the reading of the Constitution with the attempted murder of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords over the weekend.
Clyburn also said GOP members “egging on” demonstrators last year was “uncalled for.” It is believed he is referring to protests against health care reform that occurred last year on Capitol Hill.
“We ought to conduct ourselves in public office in a way we teach our children to conduct themselves when they go out into the public. I don’t believe that anyone of these members have been teaching their children inside their homes to act the way that many of them have been acting,” Clyburn said.
Clyburn is a serial agitator. Before the mid-term election he told an African-American targeted news site, that a GOP victory would lead to a investigation into where the President was born.
“The White House will be full-time responding to subpoenas about where the president may or may not have been born, whether his mother and father were ever married, and whether his wife’s family is from Georgetown or Sampit,” Clyburn said in . “That will define the next two years of the president’s administration.
According to Democratic Whip Clyburn, Charlie Rangel’s ethical problems are all the fault of that racist Tea Party blowing the charges all out of proportion.
Those Tea Party people that showed up at the health care debate, they will not hesitate for one moment to racialize something,” said Mr. Clyburn, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “They did, and they will.”
Full trials would give Mr. Rangel and Ms. Waters the chance to fully answer the charges, Mr. Clyburn said. “There was a lapse this year as it relates to Charlie,” he said. “Even by his own word, he said, ‘I was in fact sloppy.’
Congressman Clyburn is an example of what is bad with American political today. Someone who makes up stories to to advance his political agenda with no regard for the truth or for the needs of the country.
