WATCH: Chaos Erupts in TN Legislature as Things Get Physical Between Justin Pearson and GOP Speaker

By Nick Arama
August 29, 2023

You may recall a few months ago the chaos in Tennessee when three Democratic lawmakers helped to whip up a protest—which some called a "transurrection"—and disrupted a legislative session in the Capitol. Two of the lawmakers, Justin Jones and Justin Pearson, were expelled. But then they were voted back in.

The expulsion doesn't appear to have stopped their attempts to disrupt the legislature.

During a session on Monday, a bill that would add more police officers to the schools was under consideration. More officers would be a great idea to provide more protection from violence, but it doesn't fit the Democratic narrative, so Justin Jones objected to it and refused to stay on topic according to the rules. So the Speaker, Cameron Sexton, called for a vote to silence him for the rest of the day. That ticked off the leftist fans of Jones, who caused so much chaos in the gallery that the police had to clear it, and people resisted being removed. The Democrats also walked out when the GOP members refused to change their votes.

Then, on Tuesday, Jones tried to get a vote of no confidence in Speaker Sexton. It did not go well, even less well than the day before.

Jones didn't succeed, even though the Jones fans in the gallery chanted, "Vote him out."

But trouble erupted when Justin Pearson and Justin Jones stalked Sexton with signs as he was trying to leave after adjourning the session. At one point, Pearson got in between Sexton and another representative who was covering Sexton's back. Pushing and shoving ensued. Sexton began shouting at Pearson, and Pearson began shouting back.

Yep...  Make it an agenda item daily.
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.
