AL-5 Congressman Mo Brooks is obsessed about the danger from “anarchists,” “communists,” and Democratic activists pose… to HIM… in North Alabama. Pity poor Mo: he thinks he’s actually so important that people care enough to start a riot over him. And the desperate terror of facing children, teens, parents, and grandparents in an open forum – one where he can’t control the questions – is just more than he can stand.
He’s already canceled one public meeting (after the public found out it was happening) then showed up anyway. The transcript of his remarks at the scheduled/cancelled/on-again/off-again/public/private meeting are not to be believed. They seethe with equal measures of self-importance and paranoia.
From the transcript compiled from various video recordings of the event:
“I don’t think anyone’s ever offered more than $30,000 to kill me. I think that’s the most, or in that ballpark. Other congressmen are worth more.”

“Well the Democrats are in shock and they’re still dealing with how to deal with that shock. Some of the Democrat activists and particularly the more anarchist element of the Democratic party, perhaps the more criminal element in the Democratic party are resorting to criminal activity. That’s some small number, but it’s still a number. Have no idea how big it is. But we do know that it’s resulted in violence and arson in Cal Berkeley and in Washington. At least one car has been burned to the ground, a limousine in downtown Washington. We’ve had vandalism of buildings by these Democrat activists and anarchists. And we’ve had a number of people who have in fact conservative values and the values that made our country great, assaulted and left unconscious that’s how badly beaten and battered they were. I’m hopeful that that will diminish over time but it seems that the Democrats are inciting them to a greater and greater degree. Particularly at some of our universities. Like at Cal Berkeley. And then they use venomous language, demonizing people by calling them racists, um, and things like that. That is to incite more violence. And so we will have to see,how that plays out.“

Let’s set aside the undeniable fact that many, many members of Congress are worth more than Mo Brooks, and ignore the irony of Rep. “War On Whites” Brooks whining about someone using the word “racist” as a criticism. Instead, let’s focus on the abject terror he seems to have of anyone who dares disagree with him. They’re too dangerous to be around: a riot might break out.
Mo appears determined to not risk one feather on his head at a town hall meeting filled with terrifying people like these rather ordinary citizen activists (and just ordinary concerned citizens). They look pretty laid back and good-humored at these events. Of course, at the time, they probably hadn’t heard that their Congressman thinks they’re dangerous “anarchists” and probably “criminals” to boot.
In that South, that kind of name-calling tends to get people’s backs up.
vandals Democratic women have special little fold-up pitchforks they carry in their purses and their torches tucked under the tables:
These wily “criminals” are hiding out at a fundraiser at a Huntsville brewery. Dang… who knows what might happen if they get “likkered up…”
The “anarchy” is on full display here as a raucous mob of ministers and (mostly) middle-aged people gathered to protest President Trump’s ban on refugees. It’s shocking that the Huntsville Police Department didn’t even bother to show up in force to stop the riot. Oh, wait… there wasn’t one.
We’ll post the full text of Brooks’ rather unhinged ranting at his town hall/NOT town hall meeting later today. Meanwhile find out how to contact his offices to request a real town hall meeting, open to the public, at a public place.

If he continues to stall and make excuses, there’s only one response.
If he can’t take the heat, maybe it’s time to get out of the House.
