Was there ever really any doubt as to which obnoxious, performative, narcissistic, vile little chode would end up as the biggest Thanksgiving Turkey in 2021?
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has introduced a bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal — the legislative branch’s highest honor — to Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who last week was found not guilty of homicide and other charges related to his fatal shooting of two men during a protest against police violence last year.
Greene introduced a bill Tuesday to give Rittenhouse the award. While the bill’s full text was not immediately available, a summary states that the measure would “award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot.”
The likelihood that Greene’s effort will be successful is low. A bill requesting a Congressional Gold Medal must be co-sponsored by two-thirds of the House and the Senate, both now controlled by Democrats, before it is considered by the House Financial Services Committee and the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. After it is passed in Congress, the measure must be authorized by the president.
Nominating Kyle Rittenhouse for the Congressional Gold Medal is so transparently stupid that it actually causes me physical pain. To give to a young man famous for killing two protesters an award is the height of ludicrousness, and Greene is doing it on purpose to make decent people angry because she thinks it's hysterical, and she won't pay a price for it at all.
Yes, let's give a guy a Congressional medal for killing race traitors! It's just cruelty. That's what passes as Republican in 2021.
A turkey, indeed.
