Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) is posting on Twitter to praise the use of social networking media to organize against the tyrants in Iran — and the tyrannical Democrats running the House of Representatives.
“Good to see Iranian people move mountains w social media, shining sunlight on their repressive govt – Texans support their bid for freedom,” Culberson posted earlier today. He then followed it up with this: “Oppressed minorities includeHouseRepubs: We are using social media to expose repression such as last night’s D clampdown shutting off amends”
Over the next few hours — and following some ridicule in the blogosphere — Culberson has dug in further. “Pelosi etal shut down House amendments & debate on Approps Bill to prevent conservatives from slowing down their uncontrolled spending spree,” he just posted.Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) has also Tweeted on the similarities between the oppressed House Republicans and the Iranians taking to the streets: “Iranian twitter activity similar to what we did in House last year when Republicans were shut down in the House.”
