Enough with the terrorism references already.
Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) excoriated House Republicans Wednesday evening, including fellow Californian Rep. Tom McClintock, for waging a jihad against American citizens for voting to defund Obamacare in the opening rounds of the fight to extend government spending. The outrageous remark was in the context of a House debate over a Republican-backed piecemeal measure to fund the National Park Service, among other programs McClintock had expressed concerns about the effects of a government shutdown on addressing an ongoing wildfire in Yosemite National Park.
The gentleman from California came and said the towns around Yosemite was he thinking about that when he voted originally to shut down the government? Miller asked. He was prepared to sacrifice the local economy, he was prepared to sacrifice the towns around Yosemite, when he was on the jihad against American citizens getting access to health care. He was fully prepared to sacrifice the parks, and the economy, and fire recovery.
Millers combative tone escalated throughout the brief rant.
Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), the sponsor of the legislation, condemned Miller in response.
Mr. Speaker, I am disgusted that the gentleman from California would actually use the word jihad on the floor of the House. We should all reject his comments, and he should be censored, but I wont call for it.
Simpsons bill passed 252-173, with the aid of 23 Democrat yes votes.
Now is this progressive saying Jihad is a BAD thing? What a racist.
These creatures are like the undead.
The reply should be, It’s a religion of peace. How dare you?!?
“He should be censured. But I won’t call for it.” And therein lies the problem.
He should be punch in the mouth. But no one will call for it.
Thanks Tailgunner Joe.

He is from California after all. What do you expect from the left coast these days?
A Californian and a democrat.
Wow, there’s a shocker.
The Democrats think Jihad is something to Celebrate. Homosexual Marriage, Abortion, Jihad... It’s all good.
I guess he hasn’t been following current events.
Perhaps a trip to lower Manhattan is in order for him.
It’s the hardcore collectivists and jihadis that are down with the jihad/struggle.
yes he is my congressman i tweeted him back stating that he cares for some dam parks than his constituents who are being evicted due to EDD backlog, and I could be next. God I hope I find a job. This man makes me sick but the East Bay is getting liberals many transplants from Berserkly and such.
Liberalism is a mental disease...
So is he now saying the GOP and the DNC are on the same side now?
Pray America is waking up
Hey...Rep. Miller...I got yer “jihad” hangin’ right heah, Twinkletoes.
Allan is at the bar, baby, but still can’t get a cold beer...
