Dianne Reidy pictured above, lost her composure during the House vote to reopen the US government. Her rant is described as bizarre and she is said to have been dragged off of the floor. Reidy described as a gentle soul is a stenographer for the House of Representatives. This past October 16th she stepped up to the microphone in the house inquired if it was on and then launched into her rant. She spouted off about the Free Mason’s the Constitution and a divided house, and at that she was not quoting Abraham Lincoln’s speech about a divided house.
Reportedly she said. “He will not be mocked! He will not be mocked!” the woman raved as she stepped onto the dais and took over the microphone on the House floor. . . “This is not one nation under God. It never was,” she said. (I’m not arguing with her there maybe she’s not nuts after all) “Had it been … the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God.” Nope she’s whacked. “You cannot serve two masters!” she finished, leaving members and staffers stunned.
Several more times she intoned God will not be mocked, god will not be mocked! Prior to being escorted to the elevator. She is once again correct but for the wrong reason. There would is a need for there to be a god in order for a god to be mocked. You cannot mock that which isn’t.
Quickly security secured the chamber and “dragged” that gentle soul off to a hospital for some much n needed rest.
Rep. Gerry Connelly (D-Va.) said the stenographer is a familiar and liked figure in the House, The Washington Post reported.
It’s possible that her christian fundamentalist views of religion had nothing to do with her bizarre tirade. Her very public meltdown could I suppose be blamed on stress and working long hours with individuals whose strong views on how to or not to fuck up the country, may have been too much for her delicate constitution. Bizarre as it is, I am certain that it does not equal to some of the stupidest things ever uttered in that building. God talk not withstanding.
Nevertheless given the concentricity of her statements on and about her tendentious beliefs about her non-existent sky faerie. It seems very unlikely she would have commandeered the microphone unless she believed her god wanted her to chastise the members of congress. It’s not a sure thing but she may end up in the unemployment line. Possibly because she wants to spend more time with her family, the usual excuse. Or perhaps Fox News has hired her away. Her unsubstantiated beliefs bizarre beliefs have informed her behavior and she is likely to lose her job. Still, she just might end up on the christian talk circuit. Another persecuted christian. For now though it’s off to the rubber room. Please remove all sharp objects, nighty night.
A very good article at the Huffington Post.
