ANOTHER ATTACK ON DEMOCRACY! Last week, we had Rep. Gloria Johnson from Tennessee to discuss the expulsion by the Republican majority of two Black legislators for speaking out on gun violence. This week, our guest Rep. Zooey Zephyr will discuss being silenced and banned from the House floor for the remainder of the 2023 session by the Republican supermajority in Montana.
Is legislator-expulsion and silencing free speech the new playbook for Republicans? Is banishing free speech for the opposition giving activists a bigger megaphone and a larger soap box to speak out about various social issues?
