Students will rally tomorrow (Saturday, March 24) in DC and in San Antonio for more gun control. I worry when immature-emotional-uninformed kids try to influence public policy and affect my personal freedom and liberty.
The Media, Democrats and some Republicans have been quick condemning "the right", "conservatives", "whites", "males" and "Trump" over the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, August 12, 2017. But it is disingenuous to be selective in any condemnation, and we should review some facts over the past few weeks to recognize that the Mainstream, Democrats, and some Republicans are being "selective" in their comments about racial bias and violence.
It appears Hispanic Texans may have been “played” again by state Republican leaders seeking to promote themselves rather than truly grow the Party.
On Wednesday, May 17, Texas GOP chairman Tom Mechler was in San Antonio supporting a Hispanic outreach event called “Hispanic Engagement Dime” tour. Accompanying Mechler was Rick Figueroa, a member of the Trump Hispanic advisory council and key figure in organizing the Tour.
The “Tour”, which has been to several cities including Laredo, the Rio Grande Valley, Houston, and Dallas, was designed as a “listening” session for Hispanics to tell the GOP leaders what they want and suggest for greater Hispanic support of the GOP. People in attendance were divided into groups and notes were taken by facilitators.
There was some skepticism from grassroots activists because there have been so many “Hispanic outreach” projects and events in the past 40 years, and Democrats still dominate South Texas and most Hispanic communities.
It has been reported that a staffer for the Bexar County Republican Party severely criticized “Christians” for the “No Confidence” vote against Texas Speaker Joe Straus last Monday, July 10. This appears to be part of an effort to divide the GOP into social conservative and fiscal conservative camps, and to isolate the social conservatives as out-of-step, politically incorrect, religious fanatics.
Straus has said the called the “Bathroom bill” and other conservative legislation “horse manure”, and his supporters have rally to support him by saying the bills are unnecessary and they will hurt Texas economically.
Arvind Dilawar, an independent writer and “journalist”, has written a piece in the New York Daily News claiming the Santa Fe school was the result of “white supremacy”. It is interesting how the editors of a major newspaper like the NY Daily News can allow such a bias and bigoted commentary to be published, even as an opinion.
