Think Republicans are going to sanction Little Baby Briscoe for his threat toward O'Rourke?

Don’t hold your breath.

After the mass shooting which left 27 dead at the Sutherland Church, the Republican leadership did nothing.

After the mass shooting in Dallas which left 5 police officers, dead the Republican leadership did nothing.

After the mass shooting in Santa Fe which left 10 students and 2 teachers dead, the Republican leadership did nothing.

After the mass shooting in El Paso which left 22 shoppers dead, the Republican leadership did nothing.

After the mass shooting in Odessa which left 7 dead, the Republican leadership did nothing.

So if you think the republican leadership in Texas is going to call for Little Baby Briscoe’s resignation, or remove him from his committee positions, or refer the issue to the Harris County DA’s office or to the FBI, you really haven’t been paying attention.

The Republican leadership will do nothing.

    “Free speech does not mean you can yell FIRE in a crowded theatre.”I'm sure you don't know the origin of that analogy. It comes from Oliver Wendell Holmes' majority opinion in Schenck v. United States. Charles Schenck was convicted under the Espionage Act for distributing anti-draft flyers. The flyers read: “If you do not assert and support your rights, you are helping to deny or disparage rights which it is the solemn duty of all citizens and residents of the United States to retain.”He was sentenced to thirty years in prison.Anyone who opposes speech with the “fire in a crowded theater” analogy unconsciously endorses jailing draft protesters.
