Rodney Davis supports vitriolic rhetoric

Yesterday, the House voted to censure Representative Paul Gosar (AZ-04) after he posted a photoshopped anime video of him killing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) and attaching President Biden.

The only two Republicans that voted for censure were Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) and Liz Cheney (WY), meaning Rodney Davis voted in favor of his Republican colleagues using vitriolic rhetoric against other members of the house, and the President of the United States. 

That’s interesting, because here he is in 2017 saying that Democrats were using hateful, vitriolic rhetoric when saying that people would die  if the Republicans healthcare plan passed. 

He tweeted this in 2018, on National Day of Civility.

In recent years, however, he seems to have abandoned this genuine concern for public discourse. Earlier this year he voted similarly when Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) was stripped of committee assignments because of her previous calls to execute Democrats.

I am really, really looking forward to offloading Davis to another district.
