Brooks Votes Against Resolution that Condemns Discrimination Against Virtually Everyone... Except Caucasians and Christians!

Press Release

Washington, DC— Thursday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) voted “No” on H.Res. 183, a resolution that explicitly condemned discrimination against Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs (but not Christians); and condemned discrimination against African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and other immigrants (but not Caucasians); and condemned discrimination against lesbians, homosexuals, transsexuals, and the like.

Congressman Brooks said, “I oppose discrimination against anyone based on inherent characteristics like ethnicity, race, sex or any other attribute over which a person has no control. Quite frankly, I am shocked the Socialist Democrats who sponsored H.Res. 183 refused to similarly condemn discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians. In my view, discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians is just as insidious as discrimination against any other race, ethnicity or religion and the failure to specifically state opposition to discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians, while reflective of Socialist Democrat priorities and values, is, by omission, fatal to the bill.”

Brooks concluded, “H.Res. 183’s intentional omission of Christians and Caucasians is insulting and suggests America’s House of Representatives cares about virtually everyone except Christians and Caucasians. That implication is repugnant and I reject it! This failure, this omission, is fatal to H.Res. 183 and why I voted against it.”
