Arkansas Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson is a dunce. He already endorsed mask mandates. He is concerned about the omicron COVID-19. Most Arkansas residents are unvaccinated, and he wants more data to improve our vaccination rates. But this data must be provided by the CDC and NIH, which are clouding trails, control groups, and statistics. He recognizes that mandates are not something that individuals of Arkansas will accept.
Asa Hutchinson also wants minor children to determine their gender through chemical castration and hormone therapy. He thinks that Republicans in the House of Representatives should reprimand Lauren Boebert (CO) and Paul Gosar (AZ).
Elected in 2021, Lauren Boebert is a member of the House of Representatives. She is also a businesswoman and gun-rights activist. She represents Colorado’s 3rd congressional district and owns Shooters Grill in Rifle, CO, encouraging open-carry firearms. Boebert joked about Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar (MN) being a part of the Jihad Squad. She observed that a Capitol Hill police officer was concerned about sharing an elevator with Omar but did not need to worry because she had no backpack. She also joked that Pete Buttigieg, the Secretary of Transportation for the Biden maladministration, took a month off to “figure out how to chest feed” his children.
Boebert offered an apology. But Omar wants McCarthy and Speaker Pelosi to criticize her. Omar said it is a severe issue, and normalizing this dogmatism jeopardizes her everyday routine. When did Omar express her opposition to Muslim terrorism and that dogmatism that kills people? She is more concerned about anti-Muslim extremism that is not welcome in Congress.
Elected in 2010, Paul Anthony Gosar is a dentist and Representative for Arizona’s 4th congressional district. In a party-line vote, the House censured Gosar for posting a photoshopped anime video on his social media accounts. The cartoon, showing his face on a character, depicts him killing a giant with Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (NY) face. This character also used ninja moves on President Joe Biden. Seemed inappropriate by the Nancy Pelosi-led House, it is apparent that Democrats calling for violence is acceptable but using edited cartoons is not.
Asa Hutchinson thinks that Kevin McCarthy should put Boebert and Gosar on notice. Gosar has already been stripped of committee assignments by Speaker of the House Pelosi. But Asa believes House Minority Leader McCarthy ought to denounce Trump-supporting legislators more often. He thinks that Lauren Boebert and Paul Gosar need to be smacked down when they misbehave.
Our Congress once had fistfights in the well. Thank God those days are past. Now we must deal with mean Tweets and jokes. On CNN Sunday morning, Asa Hutchinson was more than willing to criticize Republicans for what they said rather than Democrats for what they’ve done.
Hutchinson thinks that, even in our party, when individuals exceed everyone’s expectations, they must be called out. On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Asa expressed his dismay that people must be managed, mainly when they breach the etiquette of Congress. By violating mutual respect, tweets can go too far. He thinks that Trump-loving Republicans are increasing brutality and expanding the separation in our country.
Hutchinson recommends talking more and searching for ways that we can unite. He thinks that we should avoid divisions along racial lines. To do this, we need less racial hatred from our media and Congress, not more.
