President Joe Biden has extended a White House invitation to the three Democrat Tennessee lawmakers who incited an angry mob that swarmed the state Capitol during gun control protests last month, yet another racially inflammatory gesture from the most divisive leader in the nation’s history.
On Wednesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed that Biden would be rolling out the red carpet for Reps. Justin Jones, Justin Pearson, and Gloria Johnson who will be honored in the nation’s capital next week.
Jones and Pearson became national martyr figures when they were expelled from the Tennessee House for their unbecoming conduct during the storming of the building on March 30 in what – were the same standards applied to leftists as it is to Trump supporters – would have been called an insurrection yet in today’s twisted world, they have been elevated to heroic figures.
Johnson, who is white, was spared from expulsion by one vote in what some cynics could see as a slick maneuver to gin up a racial firestorm over the pair of black Democrats being punished and it couldn’t have worked out better for Democrats and the Biden regime if that was the plan all along.
In an era of cheap knockoffs of the real thing, the two black activists have been celebrated by Democrats and their media stooges as though they are the second coming of slain civil rights leader Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and both were quickly reinstated to their legislative positions.
While the so-called “Tennessee Three” will be receiving high honors from the nation’s 46th president who never passes up a chance to stoke the flames of racial resentment, the grieving families of the six people including three young children who were slaughtered by a transgender shooter at a Nashville Christian school have been snubbed by Biden.
Fox News bulldog Peter Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre on why the Tennessee insurrections merit a White House invite while the parents of the victims of Audrey Hale’s murderous rampage don’t.
"You're gonna have three of the lawmakers who protested after the Nashville Covenant School shooting. Have any of the victims or the victims' families been invited?"

Biden also stirred the pot of racial recriminations with a White House invite for Ralph Yarl, the 16-year-old Kansas City teen who was shot by an elderly homeowner after he allegedly showed up at the wrong door last week, making a big deal of the invitation merited by the special victimhood status of the demographic most critical to his reelection hopes.

One of the Tennessee Democrats, Justin Jones demonstrated what a class act he is when he showed up for work toting a child’s coffin as a prop, a ghoulishly sick stunt from the attention seeker whose checkered past includes assaulting a driver with a traffic cone during a 2020 Black Lives Matter protest.

Biden took to social media earlier this month to tout his video chat with the three insurrectionists.
Earlier, I spoke to Reps Jones, Pearson, and Johnson to thank them for their leadership and courage in the face of a blatant disregard of our nation’s democratic values.
Our country needs to take action on gun violence — to do that we need more voices like theirs speaking out. pic.twitter.com/oQl9jQSOy1

“Earlier today, I spoke to Reps. Jones, Pearson, and Johnson to thank them for their leadership and courage in the face of a blatant disregard of our nation’s democratic values. Our country needs to take action on gun violence — and to do that we need more voices like theirs speaking out,” he said.
“Today’s expulsion of lawmakers who engaged in peaceful protest is shocking, undemocratic, and without precedent. Rather than debating the merits of the issue, these Republican lawmakers have chosen to punish, silence, and expel duly-elected representatives of the people of Tennessee,” Biden said in an April 6 statement on the expulsion.
