Austin, TX, Release: March 19, 2021 For Immediate Release
While Congressman Chip Roy’s video statement did have an unfortunate metaphor, this is not grounds for resignation. The Democrat Party — as usual — enjoys a complete double standard as several of their members sit comfortably in Washington even after engaging in troubling and dangerous behavior.
Chairman Allen West had this to say regarding Congressman Roy’s statement:
“Congressman Chip Roy’s comments were inappropriate and unfortunate, no one should infer hanging as a metaphor. While his comments about hanging were dumb, they’re not grounds for resignation.
I would advise that the Texas Democrat Party Chairman read American history and remember lynching was a Democrat Party tool of violence and intimidation against Blacks. I know, personally, having grown up in the South. If we want to talk about resignations, let’s start with two Democrat members of Congress, Eric Swalwell, and Cori Bush. One had intimate relations with a Chinese spy, the other led a domestic terrorist attack in St. Louis. The Democrat hypocrisy is laughable, as always.
My recommendation to Congressman Chip Roy would be to engage the brain before firing the mouth, it would avoid embarrassing situations such as this.”
Congressman Roy should not resign, and the Democrat Party shouldn’t make mountains out of molehills, especially when their own backyard looks like the Rocky Mountains.
