Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right.
They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden ‘was not legitimately elected’ and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks.
They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality ‘an abnormal lifestyle choice’ and calls for Texas schoolchildren should be taught ‘to learn about the Humanity of the Preborn Child.’
In other words it was just a normal day for them.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw and his staff were violently confronted at the Republican Party of Texas convention a short time ago, when far-right social media activist Alex Stein and others whom witnesses described as Proud Boys began shouting “eyepatch McCain” at him – an attempted insult coined by Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson.
And this genius video’ed himself:
If you are not aware, Dan Crenshaw is really tiny, like Ben Shapiro-sized:
… and this yelling guy is apparently some sort of freakish giant.
Anyway, the convention had it all:
- secession talk
- othering of LGBTQ people
- The Big Lie
Texas Republicans are a special breed of crazy, I used to think it was the heat, but then why are Texas Democrats so cool (Hey, Beto!) and seemingly normal. ’Tis a mystery.
