Meanwhile, conservatives say Democrats are engaging in selective outrage, forgetting similar incidents involving representations of George W. Bush during his presidency.
“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texas values speech, even if it’s speech they don’t agree with,” said Representative Stockman, in a press release Wednesday.
This is not the first time Stockman has issued an invite to a controversial performer, or at least a performer who has engendered fierce partisan debate. He’s the lawmaker who asked shock rocker and gun advocate Ted Nugent to attend Obama’s State of the Union address this year.
Prior to that, Stockman suggested in a 1995 article in Guns & Ammo magazine that the Clinton administration staged the 1993 raid on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, to create political support for a nationwide ban on assault weapons.
