House DFL leader Melissa Hortman calls out 'white males', won't apologize [VIDEO]

...

Now let's get to yesterday. As the bill came up for a floor debate, Democrats like DFL Rep. Ilhan Omar tried convincing House Republicans their bill is a strike against civil rights, and would've effectively blocked protests like Martin Luther King's march in Selma, Alabama.

House DFL leader Melissa Hortman probably didn't expect Omar to convince the House GOP caucus. But, she reasoned, the least they could do is sit there and listen.

Hortman moved for a "call of the House," which forces then-absent members to come back to their desks on the floor. Hortman's call came with an added twist: "I hate to break up the 100 percent white male card game in the retiring room, but I think this is an important debate."

...

"I'm a white male," Dettmer continued. "I respect everybody. But I really believe the comments that were made by the minority leader were really not appropriate." Then, turning to Hortman: "Minority leader, would you apologize to the body?"

2. Right? Seriously, WTF?

Does Dettmer call upon the roomful of white males to apologize after they pass yet another law outlawing vaginas?

I can't speak for all of my fellow delicate white males, but IMO Rep Bob Dettmer can go fuck himself.

4. I think of all the times men refer to us as "ladies."

So it's fine to talk about the ladies but a reference to white men is bigotry?

What fragile snowflakes.
