A Call For Incivility

The history of the Congressional Record is littered with incivil pronouncements against political enemies.

We’ve had now indisbutably wrong-headed pronouncements — both gracious and not gracious — for the “Peculiar Institution” of slavery, for the KKK, and for Segregation.

Strom Thurmond pissed into a bucket in the Congressional Record.

We’ve had members of one party accusing the President from the other party killing people

It’s a record that demonstrates different constituencies’ concerns, warts and all, and the idiosyncracies of particular candidaates, and vicious dislike toward the members of the opposing party or opposing philosophy.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, and particularly his vice president Henry Wallace, are tools of Communism. Pearl Harbor notwithstanding, we should not go to war. John F Kennedy’s daddy stole the election against Nixon*. Richard Nixon is a crook. All in the public record!

So, with all that in mind:

Why were Corrine Brown’s words strickened from the Congressional Record?

Audio, video, and transcription found here, disappeared as it is from the record.

I come from Florida, where you and others participated in what I call the United States coup d’etat.

We need to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Over and over again after the election when you stole the election, you came back here and said: ‘Get over it.”

No, we’re not going to get over it. And we want verification from the world.

* Okay, I don’t know for sure if that one is in there. But, I must say, if it isn’t I would be supremely disappointed.
