Scalise must be pressured to resign

If the Democratic Party can't stand up to someone who spoke at a KKK Rally, then we have no hope for winning anything in the future.

It doesn't matter how long ago it occurred, it is unacceptable.

There needs to be a mass effort to put pressure on this fucker!

2. The GOP IS the KKK

Have you been listening to them for the last 8 years. They are racist hating pigs and don't give a rip who knows.

4. He'll probably raise millions for his next campaign.

That's where this country has been and that's where we're headed. Democrats will say nothing.

5. He just won his district with about 80% of the vote

After this news he will probably win 2016 with 90%.

12. So

 

That doesn't make it any less valid. Hard for the Dems to argue that a Repub congressman should be run out of town for speaking to a white supremacy crowd (which he may or may not have realized was the case) 12 years ago when the longest serving Dem senator -- who served until 2010 -- was an actual KKK member in his early days.

16. Except Byrd called his one year in the KKK...

 

The biggest regret of his life and then worked to champion civil rights for the rest of his life. That was in the 40s, Scalise spoke in 2002.

7. Would make some political points, too.

Then, that's not what the Washington Generals do.

9. He'll be gone as soon as Boehner gets the Speaker's gavel again

Until then, the Weeper of the House can't afford another schism in his caucus.

11. Who do you think should pressure him?

The people who voted for him? They were probably the audience at that KKK rally.

Boner and the republican leadership? - They're scared of the wack jobs who support guys like him.

"Moderate" republicans? - Good luck finding one.

Congressional Black Caucus? - Give me a break.

The Obama Administration? - Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

The liberal media? -

15. From Congress? Not gonna happen.

Stepping down as whip for optics sake, also a mixed bag for the GOP.

But they have a couple of weeks to decide on how much they think they can get away with.
