U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (D) Downers Grove, to slam constitutional sheriffs in virtual townhall


Recommended Posts



Casten will host a virtual panel discussion about extremism and the constitutional sheriffs movement Sunday night. The public event is set for 6 p.m. on Casten's Facebook page, facebook.com/RepSeanCasten.




Sheriffs who follow the movement believe they are the supreme law enforcement authority in their counties and refuse to enforce laws they deem unconstitutional. The movement has [sic] ties to anti-government and white supremacist groups. [/sic]

He must be talking about something the left holds dear, like gender pills, or abortion-inducing medications.

He was talking about the failed War On Drugs but he accidentally admitted his war against guns is also a failure.

From my congressman to discuss us I would Imagine. 



Join me this Sunday at 6pm CST for a virtual panel titled "A Rise in Extremism:  A Closer Look into Authority and the Constitutional Sheriffs Movement". I will be joined by experts on extremism and the Constitutional Sheriffs movement.


Following the passage of the Assault Weapons Ban and the unilateral actions of some sheriffs in Illinois, I determined this would be an important conversation to have. RSVP here to join me.
