GOP Rep To Protester: ‘I’ll Drop Your Ass’
[su_r_sky_ad]It looks as if someone in the House of Representatives needs an intervention:
A Republican congressman threatened to fight a protester during a heated exchange over President Obama’s illegal-immigration order.
“If you touch me again, I’ll drop your ass,” Rep. Stephen Knight (R-Calif.) told a protester in a YouTube video posted over the weekend.
The confrontation escalated after one protester accused Knight of voting to grant “executive amnesty” to undocumented immigrants.
The protesters held signs that read “stop illegal immigration” and “secure the border.”
“You told me you didn’t vote for amnesty and you did. I looked it up on the Internet. You lied to me,” a protester named Mike told Knight, before patting the congressman on the shoulder and walking away.
Knight, an Army veteran and longtime Los Angeles police officer, went over to the protester and confronted him.
“Mike, Mike,” Knight says. “Hey, if you touch me again, I’ll drop your ass. All right? Don’t, don’t touch me. Don’t, don’t touch me. Don’t touch me.”
“One more time, Mike,” he added.
Finally, someone has stepped up the fill the empty shoes of Michael Grimm, who up until his resignation was the poster boy for political thuggery.
Here’s the full video of the confrontation:
