Senators Who Are Pro-LynchingThe following is a list of Senators who wouldn't co-sponsor the recently passing resolution regretting the government's inaction on lynching during the post-Civil War era (the legislation was repeatedly filibustered by southern Democrats). A senator can even cosponsor the bill retroactively, yet these people refuse to do so ñ ergo, they must be pro-lynching.
White and black constituents and interested non-constitutents should really give them a call and wheedle their staff to come up with some excuse as to why they're pro-lynching. Should be interesting to hear.
This list, btw, is courtesy Americablog, a great read:
Lamar Alexander (R-TN) - (202) 224-4944
Robert Bennett (R-UT) - (202) 224-5444
Thad Cochran (R-MS) - (202) 224-5054
John Cornyn (R-TX) - (202) 224-2934
Michael Enzi (R-WY) - (202) 224-3424
Judd Gregg (R-NH) - (202) 224-3324
Kay Hutchison (R-TX) - (202) 224-5922
Jon Kyl (R-AZ) - (202) 224-4521
Trent Lott (R-MS) - (202) 224-6253
Richard Shelby (R-AL) - (202) 224-5744
John Sununu (R-NH) - (202) 224-2841
Craig Thomas (R-WY) - (202) 224-6441
Gordon Smith (R-OR)
Updated: Removed two names (Crapo and Grassley) who finally did sign on, and added Gordon Smith, who never did. Updated again: Orrin Hatch finally falls off the list. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that both TexASS senators are on the list (the only state with 100% bigot representation) -- if there's a state in this here Union that's pro-lynchin', it's TexASS!
Give those TexASS numbers a call and yell into the phone "WOOO-EEEE! I hear ya'll are standing up in favor of lynchin'!! DAMN that's good stuff! When can we start stringin' up them niggers again??! I gots me plenty o' videotape porn that proves they're messin' with our white wimmen!! In the butt-hole, even!!"
That oughta stick in a pin in their racist asses ...
