Back in March 2000, then Rep. Joe Scarborough authored this blistering resolution “condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton.”

Here’s the opener:

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘‘bloodsucking [J]ews’’, and ‘‘Jew bastards’’;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘‘white interlopers’’ and ‘‘diamond merchants’’;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton was found guilty of defamation by a jury in a New York court arising from the false accusation that former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, who is white, raped and assaulted a fifteen year-old black girl;

But things quickly went off the rails during a hearing today in the House when Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz asked Sharpton of his now-colleague’s words from that resolution. Have a watch:

FWIW, Scarborough says he’s “buried the hatchet” with Sharpton:

So now Rep. Gaetz can’t ask about it?
