If this author knows anything about anything, it’s that Democrats and the Left think that even the most minor disruption of an official proceeding of Congress is just about the worst thing you can do in American politics these days (or so they claim). Such an action desecrates the hallowed ground walked upon by our nation’s public servants and spits on the Constitution itself, Legacy Media has beaten into us for the last two-and-a-half years.

No matter how small or non-violent the action might be, even if accidental, anybody who would disrespect Congress must be thrown into the slammer, made an example out of, and have his or her life ruined. They should be given a nickname, too. Like The Lectern Guy, or The QAnon Shaman fella with the horns.

And so, it gives me no pleasure to say, but the evidence suggests that Congressman Jamaal “The Fire Alarm Guy” Bowman (D-NY) is now a threat to democracy who must have the book thrown at him.

On Saturday, The Daily Wire reported that Bowman was seemingly caught on camera pulling the fire alarm at the Cannon House Office Building ahead of a motion to adjourn on Saturday as Democrats seek to delay a continuing resolution vote. Bowman and his ilk are threatening to shut down the government if Ukraine doesn’t get their money in the stopgap spending bill.

We didn’t think Bowman would literally threaten to shut down the government by sending everybody into a panic, but a still image of a man who looks a lot like Bowman pretty much confirmed it.

Bowman allegedly broke multiple laws with such a heinous action. First, it’s a crime in Washington, D.C., to pull a fire alarm when there actually isn’t a fire.


Secondly, obstructing a Congressional proceeding is a felony.

Congressman Troy Nehls (R-TX) offered to apprehend him.

“I’m hearing Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was CAUGHT ON CAMERA pulling the fire alarm in a House Office Building to delay the CR vote. IF TRUE: he should be charged with obstructing an official proceeding which is a FELONY. As a former Sheriff, I’d happily slap the cuffs on him.”

Now, Bowman’s spokesperson is saying that he did not mean to cause a panic. It was all a big misunderstanding.

But oh no, just like those who entered the Capitol on January 6 and have argued they didn’t mean to break any laws, Bowman can’t be let off the hook. He wouldn’t want that either if he had any legal and moral consistency.

As Bowman once said, “No one in this country is above the law.”

Rules are rules. Bowman needs to be held to the same standard set by the Democrats. He can tell his sob story to the judge.

PS: Bowman is a former middle school principal. He didn’t know pulling the fire alarm would cause chaos? Give me a break.
