There鈥檚 really no mistaking this silent protest. It was intentional, and it is powerful.

When the families tried to meet with GOP leaders after jan 6th- they refused to even speak with them no one should ever shake their hands again
During the 2020 BLM riots, a 29-year-old police officer named Shay Mikalonis became a quadriplegic after he was shot in the head during a riot in Las Vegas.

More than 2,000 officers were injured during the summer of love.

When is their Congressional Gold Medial ceremony?
You know how to prevent this kind of humiliation?


Raw power.

Make them fear you.

Investigations into the FBI instigators in the J6 crowd. Investigations of Capitol Police opening doors. Investigations into Pelosi denying National Guard. Prosecutions. Jail

That鈥檚 it

This family has been mistreated and abandoned by republicans in congress amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/05/28鈥
giving them exactly the respect they deserve
Diese pure Verachtung vonseiten der Polizei ist ausnahmsweise einmal wohltuend.
In reply to @HowardMortman
Well done. Those two hypocrites deserve nothing but contempt.
We ALL need to walk past McConnell and McCarthy--at the VOTING BOOTH!
This is incredible. Good on them.
McConnell and McCarthy deserved it.
I wouldn't shake the hands of cowardly Trump enablers like them either. They're dishonorable.

The men and women who defended the Capitol on Jan 6th are true heroes.
In reply to @HowardMortman
Senator Schumer even gestures as if to suggest they shake hands with Republicans and they want nothing to do with McConnell or McCarthy Seems fitting

I'm telling ya and @RepMaxineWaters told us >6yrs ago that we must shame, shun and frankly, ostracize maga and those who failed to defend our country w/their most basic duty of upholding our constitution & impeaching trmp for crimes THEY KNEW HE COMMITTED bc gop COVERED THEM UP.
These officers are showing the same amount of respect that was shown to them!馃挋

McConnell and McCarthy can't ever claim to #BackTheBlue when they sided with the domestic terrorists who tried to hurt/kill the officers to help Trump seize power.

washingtonpost.com/powerpost/capi鈥 maybe mcconnell should have sent his staff to the gold medal ceremony, instead of facing the families- the staff he sent when they asked to speak to him in 2021
The is one of the best things I鈥檝e seen in a long time. These brave patriots know who exactly who Republicans are and want nothing to do with them.
Inject this video in my veins.
Democrats are hateful, graceless creatures who will laugh when the government murders or imprisons you, and then dance on your graves.
A beautiful thing to see.
Liberals lionizing the DC Capitol Police, literally one of the several hundred police departments in the country that are actively trained by Israeli occupational forces, proves yet again that they learned absolutely fucking nothing from the 2020 BLM uprisings. Pathetic. ACAB.
I can鈥檛 believe people are comparing Mitch to Satan. Yes, he鈥檚 evil, but certainly not as evil as Mitch.

TYPO FIXED: this is something to behold. Officers receiving Congressional Medals shake the hands of Pelosi & Schumer and walks right past MCConnell & McCarthy. Our officers & their families have spines to hold people accountable unlike R leadership who should have. BRAVO 馃憦
In reply to @HowardMortman
Excellent. It's insulting to Americans to have McConnell and McCarthy there. They enabled the insurrectionists.
Republicans standing in line trying to get credit for things they opposed but the Dems did. I bet they still take credit on their websites.

Inject this powerful rebuke of McConnell & McCarthy into my damn veins. Great way to start the day.
B-cuz FUCK #McConnell and #McCarthy, they aided and abetted the Jan 6th Insurrection and continue to deflect, obstruct, and lie to defend themselves and the other traitors.

Republicans are the enemy , they deserve ZERO RESPECT.

They're fake azz hypocrites. They got exactly what they deserved. NEVER forget the Republicans wanted to cover up the facts of Jan 6th and for us to "move on." As long as they embrace 45? They deserve no respect! The end. #TraitorsToAmerica
In reply to @HowardMortman
McCarthy definitely deserves it. McConnell should at least get credit for calling Jan 6th what it was, an attack on our democracy. But since he voted for acquit Trump, he can't have it both ways. He deserves the snub too.
This is the best thing I will see today until Warnock is declared the winner.

They know who鈥檚 responsible, and they know who is letting it happen again. Three days ago, the guy who sent the mob suggested *ending the Constitutional order* to place him in permanent control of the country, and neither one of these 鈥渓eaders鈥 has said shit. Walk right past.
You are what you eat. Shitheels
This is quite powerful.
Hey Law Enforcement, keep letting the Democrats use you for a photo op. No worries, 1 of the 800,000 are bound to make a split second decision that went wrong for them to throw the entire profession under the bus again.
If you want to be seen as A-Political, than act like it.
This is beyond moronic for (a) police getting awards for Jan 6 and (b) GOP leadership being part of this farce and allowing themselves to get embarrassed and used as muppets. Moronic on multiple levels.

All this proves is that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer CREATED this sideshow complete with associated Capital Cop families giving Republicans the snub. Democrats are so fucking clearly corrupt it's disgusting. These are not heroes. pic.twitter.com/hKq0eZGYnC

The 21 Republicans who voted against the bill are: Lauren Boebert of Colorado John Rose of Tennessee Andy Harris of Maryland Thomas Massie of Kentucky Bob Good of Virginia Louie Gohmert of Texas Barry Moore of Alabama
They're lucky that's all they got.
In reply to @HowardMortman
I love this. It cuts thru all the BS and shows Republicans as the feckless frauds they are who are not worthy to be acknowledged by heroes.
Dude, that moment where Schumer motions for the man to shake McConnell's hand and he just shake his head and walks past. Brutal.

Holding them accountable
When you know who really backs the blue.
This is what happens when you promote hate and help insurrectionists instead of hard-working Americans and the law enforcement officers who keep us safe.
That鈥檚 the way to do it!!!
Heroes know who aided and abetted the attackers.
Have McConnell or McCarthy reacted to this?
Epic trolling.

And well-deserved; McConnell and McCarthy both immediately condemned Donald John Trump as being responsible for the terrorist attack on Congress on 1/6, but then reversed themselves and pretended they hadn't.

They're nothing more than spineless fascists now.

Republicans leadership and party needs to be burned down. It no longer is a democratic option. More of this. twitter.com/HowardMortman/鈥
I know that these precious moments of humiliation won't change who McConnell or McCarthy are fundamentally as corrupt, hypocritical, and despicable politicians, but they sure are sweet to see.

U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick's family didn't want anything to do with Republicans who are complicit with the Jan. 6th election that caused Brian's death. How could anyone not support them in loathing what Republicans have done?
Can you blame them?
In reply to @HowardMortman
Can not stop watching this Will watch it a million times more The two #McMoscows McConnell & McCarthy have treated these heroes & their families horribly They refused to meet them or sent their staff instead. These heroes have been threatened, mistreated & abandoned by @GOP
This is remarkable. And wonderful.
Wow. Good for them.
Gather round, boys and girls. Today's lesson is that actions have consequences. Certainly not a new lesson but one that warrants reiterating!
They got what they deserve鈥isrespect.
Speaks volumes on both sides. Schitty people, doing schitty things to schitty people.

Embarrassing and wholly deserved
To see McConnell's decrepit little mitt hovering ignored hanging in mid-air is nicely cathartic
