Madison Cawthorn tells Democrats they’ll ‘never amend biology’ and the definition of a woman is ‘XX chromosomes’ and ‘no tallywacker’ in House floor speech with GOP still furious over his cocaine and orgy comments
- The North Carolina congressman appears to be trying to deflect from the controversy surrounding his claim that he was invited to an orgy in Washington
- Cawthorn claims Democrats ‘exchanged natural science for a party platform’
- It’s seemingly in reference to left-wing opposition to Republican state legislatures passing laws concerning gender identity and American youth
- ‘The left has ripped away the pen of truth from the author of life,’ he said
- It comes the same day as one of Cawthorn’s primary challengers released a political ad knocking the freshman incumbent for seeking to be a ‘celebrity’
Controversial Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) had a bizarre message for Democrats in a speech on the House floor on Monday, asserting that real women had ‘XX chromosomes’ and ‘no tallywacker.’
He delivered the remarks as members of his own party still appear to be furious that the freshman lawmaker boasted about getting invited to cocaine-fueled orgies in Washington.
Cawthorn told Democrats they will ‘never amend biology,’ taking a shot at left-wing outrage over red states passing laws curbing discussion on sexual orientation and gender identity in the classroom and limiting transgender students’ participation in school sports.
‘The left has ripped away the pen of truth from the author of life,’ the odd tangent began.
‘They’ve exchanged natural science for a party platform, and declared war on biology. Your left-wing movement is forcing children to endure radical expressions of sexuality and yet you can’t even define what a woman is.’
The comment is likely in reference to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, where the Biden nominee said she is ‘not a biologist’ during a grilling by GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn on the ‘definition’ of the word ‘woman.’
Cawthorn continued, ‘You might amend a bill, but you’ll never amend biology. Science is not Burger King. You can’t just have it your way.’
Rep. Madison Cawthorn took to the House floor on Monday where he scolded Democrats: ‘The left has ripped away the pen of truth from the author of life’
The fast food giant actually scrapped its ‘Have it your way’ slogan in 2014 in favor of the more personal, inclusive ‘Be your way.’
‘I am the youngest member of the House of Representatives,’ the 26-year-old Congressman said. ‘And I never imagined that one of my sacred duties in this hallowed chamber would be explaining to the House Speaker the difference between a man and a woman.’
‘Take notes Madame Speaker, I’m about to define what a woman is for you: XX chromosomes, no tallywacker. It’s so simple.
‘And yet today this proclamation of fundamental scientific fact will cause the woke liberals of Silicon Valley to strip you of your voice and ban you until you bow at their alter of falsehoods.’
He added: ‘You and your party are living a lie.’
Cawthorn ignited a firestorm of criticism from Republicans in North Carolina and in Washington late last month when he made comments on a podcast describing ‘sexual perversion’ from members of Congress.
Cawthorn’s tirade comes after House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy said he spoke with the freshman lawmaker about comments he made claiming he was invited to an orgy in DC. McCarthy said Cawthorn’s behavior was not up to par and that he ‘lost my trust’
He claimed to have been invited to an orgy and alleged he saw at least one lawmaker do cocaine.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Cawthorn ‘lost’ his ‘trust’ after meeting with the young Congressman last week, claiming his behavior was ‘not becoming’ of his national office.
The Republican leader warned Cawthorn could face consequences if he did not course correct.
Current and former GOP lawmakers demanded that Cawthorn either name names or admit to lying.
The North Carolina Republican, who has not retracted his comments, released a statement blaming Democrats and the media for his controversy.
‘My comments on a recent podcast appearance calling out corruption have been used by the left and the media to disparage my Republican colleagues and falsely insinuate their involvement in illicit activities,’ he said without going into specifics about those comments.
Cawthorn’s GOP primary opponents have also pounced on how he’s spent his fledgling term in Congress.
North Carolina state Senator Chuck Edwards, who hopes to be the Republican nominee for Cawthorn’s seat in November, released a new political ad insinuating that the incumbent is more interested in being a ‘celebrity’ than working for his district.
‘Here in the mountains, we don’t seek the limelight. We put our heads down and get to work,’ Edwards says in the short clip. ‘If you want a celebrity, go watch the Kardashians.’
Edwards captured the endorsement of North Carolina Senator Tom Tillis last week.
Tillis said Cawthorn had ‘fallen well short of the most basic standard western North Carolina expects from their representatives.’
