“We don’t need metal detectors in Congress. We need lie detectors”

The 2021 storming of the United States Capitol resulted in new metal detectors in Congress. Many members of Congress objected to the inconvenience. “We don’t need metal detectors in Congress. We need lie detectors” became a popular meme and was printed on many images.

“Just throwing this out there:  along with metal detectors in Congress, how about lie detectors?” was posted on Twitter by Charlie O’Neill on February 2, 2021. “We don’t need Metal Detectors in Congress, we need Lie Detectors” was posted on Facebook by Jan Powers on February 9, 2021. It is uncertain who originated the meme.

House Republicans Rage Against ‘Unconstitutional’ Metal Detectors Now Installed Outside Chamber After Violent Riots
By Reed Richardson Jan 12th, 2021, 10:21 pm
Rules for thee, but not for me?

House Republicans furiously lashed out at — and brazenly disobeyed — new safety protocols that American schoolchildren, air travelers, and sports fans must abide by every day. Newly-installed metal detectors put in place outside the House chamber — in response to last week’s violent insurrection in the Capitol — ignited both anger and hyperbole among some of the most ardent fans of the president who incited that attack.
