Texas GOP congressman condemned for advocating lynching at hearing on anti-Asian violence

Nothing will solidify your GOP bona fides like a congressional speech supporting lynching.

While most people consider lynching to be an archaic practice that bypasses the legitimate legal system for the meting of an instant and unilateral verdict with no chance of presenting witnesses in one’s own defense or higher appeal, there are — astonishingly for this day and age — Republican legislators who seem to admire and advocate for the practice.

Take, for instance, Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) who took the most inappropriate occasion possible, a House hearing on racist violence against Asian Americans, to imply that taking a rope and swinging it over the branches of a sturdy tree is a serious solution to achieve rough justice.

It’s extremely difficult to stretch one’s mind to the extent necessary to find any redeeming value in the words and ideas expressed by Rep. Roy, whose comments immediately drew harsh condemnation on social media.

A society that ceases to share common values — particularly over something as important as the importance of fair trials and the deplorability of extrajudicial executions — is a society in serious decline.

Unless people like Congressman Roy are repudiated and can longer hold their heads up in polite society as a consequence of their shameful behavior, America will never regain whatever greatness it once professed to have.
