They can’t shut all of us up.

Elizabeth Warren was denied her right to speak on the Senate floor last night when she tried to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King.

The letter was written by Martin Luther King’s widow when Senator Jeff Sessions was nominated to be a judge in the 80’s. It pleaded that he not be allowed to come to power I this way because of all his racist actions and beliefs.

The letter was not allowed to be read in the Senate then and it’s not being allowed now.

Republicans sited a rule that says, basically, that Senators can’t insult each other on the floor. This is ridiculous though as Senator Warren wasn’t insulting him so much as raising concerns about his nomination.

How can we vet nominees if we can’t question negative aspects of them?

The GOP is trying to silence us and bully us into compliance. Do not allow this.

I’ve included a copy of Mrs. King’s letter.

Maybe they can silence Senator Warren on the floor… But they cannot silence a chorus of resistance.

You were always bad with emotions. Okay that wasn’t entirely true, you really were only bad with one emotion and anything that had to do with it, it being Love. So were you in love with Auston Matthews? No… Maybe… Yes. You were completely mad about the NHL player. And he made you completely mad. He angered you in every way. Well, maybe half of that was your fault. Like mentioned earlier, you weren’t great with the emotion of love, which meant, Auston made you nervous. It was hard to talk to him any time you were around him. Eventually you tried to avoid him at all costs but you also wanted to be around him 24/7. So yeah, there was some hostility between you two. To be fair it wasn’t all your fault. Auston was the one who started the hate relationship you two now had. It was clear ever since the third time you hung out with him. You had slyly mentioned to your best friend, Mitch Marner, that you thought Auston was attractive. You may have understated your emotions for Auston though. The first time you saw Auston, you knew. You knew that he was the one. You never once believed in true love at first sight but the moment Auston looked at you with those big brown eyes, you believed. With that being said, things had got a lot more difficult since then. Mitch said he would talk to Auston for you and from that point on Auston was always rude towards you. You thought it was because he actually didn’t like you and was just trying to send the message. A message where he hated you. It was clear. Mitch didn’t understand it. He said he’d try and tell Auston to settle down but you asked him not to. You didn’t want Auston to know you even cared.
