In response to today’s #ShutDownDC, I will be working on introducing a bill that would force protesters arrested at demonstrations in D.C. to pay for police overtime and other fees related to the action.
Under my bill, a person will be responsible for public safety response costs incurred by the District of Columbia’s response to a demonstration if, in connection with the demonstration, the person is convicted of a felony or misdemeanor offense.
Washington, D.C. collects over $4 billion in federal funding. Hoosier taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook for illegal protests – it is a violation of their 1st Amendment rights.

Now #ShutDownDC has guys twerking while people throw confetti at them to... stop climate change? Littering confetti is a bold new tactic to stop climate change, let’s see how it works out. These people are not mentally well.
These are totally sane people we should listen to... Real paragons of intellectual strength... Anyone who takes this seriously is certifiably insane. 🙄🙄🙄
How do you parody this? You can’t. What’s more ridiculous than having a climate protest *with kids watching* where a moron litters confetti onto a half clothed guy twerking in the street while forcing cars to emit more fossil fuels since they’re blocked by this idiotic tantrum.

The media studiously ignored it. A thread. 1/x
How does America recover from a media that ignores the outrage of its population? That’s content chasing the next spectacle from a deranged emperor? #WeThePeopleMarch 2/x
