Baratunde: 'Grotesque' To Call Lynching A Form Of Justice | The 11th Hour | MSNBC


  1. Roy gave a “baiting speech ” to incite hatred against a group being targeted… no accident… deliberate offense and bullying…

    1. He will see how angry even the media gets about this. I can’t even look at his face.

  2. So basically Chip wants the freedom to make reckless immature juvenile comments, even if it endangers the lives of other Americans. Well isn’t that special.

  3. Apparently vigilantism is justice to Representative Roy and his Republican counterparts. Does that mean they support to horrific Capitol Insurrection as a legitimate act – vigilante justice?

    1. Well of course.
      As good Confederate old boys they don’t recognize the federal government as legitimate, so white folks can do whatever they like in their eyes.

    2. ๐Ÿค”Wonder if the families of the officers who were murdered, suicided, or severely injured saw/heard Chip? Surely there’s a lawyer needing some work to do, and Chip must have plenty money!

      Bankrupt him.

  4. Bet Chip is better at keeping the eye holes on his white hood lined up than he is at wearing a mask.

    1. brenda north: you are soooo right about the white hood!
      He probably has a mask in camo for the weekends!

  5. Republicans would be more willing to wear protection against the virus if they made it into a hood instead of a mask.

  6. What’s so disgusting is the fact that yahoo from Texas will probably win reelection in 2022. Most of his constituents don’t have a problem with what he says. That’s why he can get away with it.

  7. how can people tolerate these politicians who make these horrific comments and get away with it? they need to go.

    1. It is unfortunate but they represent the majority of people in Texas. They need to go but they keep getting voted in.

    1. Yes and I Love you! Please be careful and walk with some protection as all women need to, it shouldn’t be that way but…

  8. The mask wasn’t on his face, but his hood was. Best wishes from over the pond. Keep safe and well folks. And please be kind to our fellow human beings.

  9. GOP, now openly the party promoting white supremacy.
    ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ They went downhill fast!

  10. Chip Roy should have been asked to leave the Chamber after that hate speech, and should have also been arrested and charged for it.

    1. Ingrid Reid He (chip) should have been immediately rebuked for his racial comments by more than just the lady congresswoman…Decorum means nothing anymore… he should have been cursed out…. and summarily dismissed from the chamber…
