Liberal Congressman Boycotts Moment of Silence for Vegas Victims

by

A liberal Congressman from Massachusetts will be “taking a knee” as members of the House of Representatives pause in memory of those viciously murdered in Sunday night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas; telling fellow lawmakers he “will NOT be joining” his colleagues as they mourn the victims.

Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Seth Moulton made the insensitive announcement on social media Monday afternoon, announcing his opposition to the moment of silence because the practice has become “an excuse for inaction.”

“Thinking of everyone in #LasVegas, and praying Congress will have the courage to do more than stand in silence to commemorate them,” he tweeted. “As after #Orlando, I will NOT be joining my colleagues in a moment of silence on the House Floor that just becomes an excuse for inaction. Now is not a moment for silence; it’s a time for action.”

The liberal lawmaker was referring to the mass shooting that occurred at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in June 2016; when an ISIS-inspired gunman, identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, opened fire killing 49 people and injuring 58 others.
