Lawrence O'Donnell Calls Congressman Darrell Issa Actions Towards Cummings Shameful I CALL It RACISM!

Video of Lawrence O'Donnell's thoughtful and insightful explanation that no congressional hearing chairman other than Issa have ever adjourned a hearing without letting anyone else speak or ask a question. The fact that Issa not only didn't let African-American Congressman Cummings make a statement or ask a question but cut off the the microphone of the ranking Democrat is RACISM.

  “Congressman Darrell Issa of California abused his authority and therefore must be reprimanded to ensure the dignity of the House of Representatives is preserved,” Ohio Democratic Rep. and Congressional Black Caucus chair Marcia Fudge wrote. “We urge you to take prompt action to maintain the integrity of this body and remove Mr. Issa as chair of the Oversight & Government Reform Committee immediately.” Issa and Cummings have been at odds for months over the committee’s investigation into improper IRS targeting of conservative groups for review of their tax-exempt status. Groups with other political affiliations were scrutinized as well however, and Issa and other Republicans have for months sought – and failed – to prove that the administration itself directed the IRS scrutiny.

Someone who has a national platform and can't be hurt financially should call out Issa for his racist behavior towards Cummings and his racist agenda towards President Obama. A person that I would suggest is Bill Cosby.

Discussing racism in American should not deem one an unreliable idealistic liberal, a racist, or a race-card playing cry baby. America can no longer afford to silence RACISM discussions. We cannot afford to muffle the truth because racism appears to have gotten worst since this nation elected President Barack Hussein Obama not once but two times.
