You could hear a pin drop.
Conservative commentator Matt Walsh, who created the hit documentary “What Is A Woman?” silenced a bunch of Democrat lawmakers.
Walsh testified about a bill that would ban trans surgeries for minors.
“She does not need hormone injections and scalpels. She needs and deserves to be protected from those child-abusing quacks and vultures who wish to exploit her confusion for their own gains,” Walsh said about a trans child seeking gender-affirming surgery.
First was Democrat Rep. John Ray Clemmons who tried to play gotcha, and Walsh skewered him.
“The background that qualifies me to speak to this is I’m a human being with a brain and common sense and I have a soul,” Walsh said in response to questions from Rep. John Ray Clemmons, D-Nashville. “So, therefore, I think it’s a really bad idea to chemically castrate children. That is my experience. Now, it’s true I didn’t go to college, but I did go to school long enough to learn how to read. So, I can read the data for myself and that’s exactly what I’ve done.”
In response, Clemmons asked, “And for what purpose do you conduct your research and use this brain of yours?”
“I do this to protect children and keep them from being castrated and mutilated,” Walsh replied. “That’s one of the things I try to do.”
Today I testified at a committee hearing in support of a bill banning child mutilation in Tennessee. A Democrat on the committee asked what qualifies me to speak on the subject. It was a very dumb question but I tried my best to answer it for him. pic.twitter.com/56gAnl4TAL

Perhaps the most damaging moment for Democrats came during a back-and forth-with Democrat Rep, Caleb Hemmer.
Hemmer tried to use a Media Matters hit piece on Walsh to stifle him.
Walsh corrected the record-crushing Hemmer’s talking points and then asked a single question.
When you watch the clip below, you’ll notice how quiet it got until Hemmer got the chairmen to bail him out.
“Yeah we get to ask the question,” the chairman said to break the silence.
