House Witness Tells Madison Cawthorn He Should Try Listening To Her Opening Statement At Hearing He Is Participating in. Cawthorn continued by calling out Amy Cooter, a sociology professor from Vanderbilt University, who was participating in the hearing as an expert witness on U.S. militia groups. The congressman accused Cooter of using her opening statement to “attack the idea of having militias in our country,” and that “it is disgusting to say there is extremism and we need to root out extremists inside our military, inside our veterans.”

David Madison Cawthorn (born August 1, 1995) is an American politician serving as the U.S. representative for North Carolina's 11th congressional district.

An expert on U.S. militias has accused Representative Madison Cawthorn, a Nort Carolina Republican, of not listening to her testimony at a House hearing on extremism before offering a discordant condemnation of her views a short time later.

'I find it degrading:' Some House Democrats say they're tired of passing through metal detectors every time they vote

  'I find it degrading:' Some House Democrats say they're tired of passing through metal detectors every time they vote "I think it would be good for the comity of the place to focus on real security, not optical security," said Rep. Tom Malinowski of New Jersey. "But as a practical security measure they don't make a lot of sense to me, given what the actual threats are.""I think it would be good for the comity of the place to focus on real security, not optical security," he added.But most other Democrats remained supportive of the increased screening measures. "I think it's a good thing," said Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez, another freshman Democrat.

Madison Cawthorn 's never had a real job in his life. Fun facts about this treasonous asshole: Rejected from the naval academy, paralyzed because he and his friend were driving drunk and allegedly playing that game where you switch seats while driving, accused of sexual assault by students at his very conservative college who released an open letter claiming that he preyed on women and destroyed trust in their community, he has no work.

Cawthorn Lied About Crash That Partially Paralyzed Him---The right-wing star claimed his friend left him to die in a “fiery tomb.” The friend told The Washington Post he pulled Cawthorn from the wreck. ROACHES FOR RAID. Madison Cawthorn deletes bizarre post celebrating 'bucket list' visit to Hitler's HQ--SOMEBODY TELL HIM--That long before Hitler went after Jews, He MURDERED PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES. So what if libs are calling him a hypocrite, as long as he is riling them up, he is doing something good. And they will not listen to the points libs are calling him out on.

Cooter said that her research had found "the majority of militia members are law-abiding citizens" before expressing concerns about violent "extremist units" seeking recruits that include "some disenchanted veterans." Minutes later, Cawthorn condemned what he called a "disgusting" hearing while singling out Cooter's testimony for allegedly "attacking the idea of having militias."

"I just heard Dr. Amy Cooter with her opening statement start attacking the idea of having militias in our country," Cawthorn said. "I understand that she used some special words and things to say that 'oh no, I'm not against all militias.' But unfortunately having a militia is a protected right within our constitution under the Second Amendment. And I believe it is disgusting to say that there is extremism and that we need to root out extremists inside our military, inside our veterans."

Why Madison LeCroy Doesn’t Think Ex Austen Will be Happy About Engagement

  Why Madison LeCroy Doesn’t Think Ex Austen Will be Happy About Engagement Why Madison LeCroy Doesn’t Think Ex Austen Will be Happy About Engagement“It hasn’t even crossed my mind, but I don’t think he’ll care,” LeCroy, 31, exclusively told Us Weekly while discussing her partnership with Amazon. “I don’t think that the lifestyle that I want for myself and my son is something he’s really even interested [in].

It’s unclear if Cawthorn had his gun on the floor, and Capitol Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from HuffPost. “Congressman Cawthorn also abides by all Capitol Police regulations that he is informed of,” Cawthorn ’s spokesperson added. When you listen to the right's perpetual meltdown about tyranny and then look at the actual democratic party agenda it's like "really? That's what you're itching to shed American blood over? Slightly higher orporate tax rates and a broad definition of infrastructure?"

" Madison Cawthorn " sounds like the kind of name a writer would come up with if they were trying to depict a character who was a complete and total douchebag. Alongside a photo of himself visiting a home in Germany once patronized by Hitler—who Cawthorn called “the Führer”—the young Republican also wrote that seeing the property “has been on my bucket list for awhile.” The photo predated the campaign by several years, although Instagram’s method of dating makes it difficult to decipher exactly when it was posted.

"For you to come here and members of Congress to say, 'oh well, you know what—it's actually a high likelihood that people who are veterans who are in militias are actually extremists,' that is disgusting," he later added. "Dr. Cooter, I would like to point a question to you: Are you anti-militia?"

Cooter responded to Cawthorn by saying that she suspected he had "actually missed all of our opening statements," while pointing out that she has been accused of being a "militia apologist" but was speaking specifically about a minority of extremists within militias.

"Mr. Cawthorn, I believe that you actually missed all of our opening statements and I would encourage you to review the film on that," said Cooter. "If you would have heard me, you would have heard me say I've been a gun owner since I was 21. I grew up in the foothills of Appalachia and I have very close personal contacts with militia members across the country."

Meek Mill's 'Expensive Pain' comes with a heavy cost

  Meek Mill's 'Expensive Pain' comes with a heavy cost NEW YORK (AP) — Meek Mill is not behind prison bars. He’s no longer required to check in with parole officers. But despite this freedom, the rapper has not fully rid himself of invisible shackles that still confine him. “I just feel like I’m a pullover away from running into the wrong cop, getting into a wild situation,” said the 34-year-old rapper and social activist, born Robert Williams. “My whole adult life, I was on probation the whole way. So, it’s like a natural feeling. I would be lying if I said I felt totally free.

The Cawthorn dust-up captures this nicely. His spokesman says he “fears” that “others” will “erroneously choose” violence, as long as “election integrity questions” remain unresolved. But Cawthorn himself cheerfully does all he can to give life to those “questions,” even though they’re based in lies. These politicians are terrible human beings, but they’re not the pied pipers of extremism , they’re backing into the culture of rightwing voters. This is in large part due to the massive billionaire funded rightwing media empire selling fear and outrage porn for the last 30 years.

Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina went on a podcast Wednesday to accuse Dr. Anthony Fauci of being "a pawn" of the Chinese government and promised to "prosecute" him should the GOP retake the House majority in 2022. The 25-year-old congressman was spring-boarding off Paul and Cawthorn have been pushing a conspiracy theory that a possible virus leak from a Wuhan lab was nefarious not accidental, tying it to Fauci and the US government's gain-of-function research into transmissible diseases and thus making the nation's leading infectious disease expert responsible for

"I'm frequently accused of being a militia apologist because I actually try to focus very frequently on how many of them are law-abiding folks," she added. "But the focus today is on that extreme element and the potential danger that that extreme faction specifically can pose to our veterans and to our country."

Cawthorn thanked Cooter for "saying that you don't think many members of militias are extremists" and remarked that he was "glad" she was a gun owner. The congressman then insisted that he did watch Cooter's opening comments before saying that he was "saddened" the hearing was taking place at all, due to it being "about finding extremists inside of our veterans."

After the hearing, Cooter tagged Cawthorn on Twitter while sharing a link to the text of her testimony, once again encouraging the congressman to review her statements. The professor also said that Cawthorn allegedly condemning her speech without having listened to all of it reminded her of behavior she sometimes encounters from students.

"I think I will wrap up my tweeting spree by using just a few more 'special words' to note that, as a professor, I am well accustomed to people having not done the readings, but I'd suggest at least looking to context cues before staking a claim on any given debate," Cooter tweeted.

Newsweek reached out to Cawthorn's office for comment.
