Religion Clause: Opponents of Hate Crimes Bill Add Amendments That Make It More Contentious
Yes, it is a parliamentary procedure tactic that is allowed.
Yes, the DEMs have done it too.
Yes, I blasted the DEMs for this as well.
No, it doesn't make it any more ethical.
If Sessions and the rest of the GOP want to keep the Hate Crimes Legislation from being voted on, fine. Debate the issue on its own merits. But don't play this political game & then cry the DEMs aren't playing fair when they do the same thing.
By trying to add the capital punishment onto the bill to divide the DEMs & make the bill so ridiculous, it only shows that politics is more important than substance.
The stench of hypocrisy.
