Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who bravely stood up to municipal officials and re-opened her business during the Wuhan virus pandemic, announced on August 22, 2020 that she will be running for the Texas State Senate.
According to a report from the Texas Tribune, Luther is a resident of Denton Country and has been flirting with the idea of running to replace State Senator Pat Fallon in a special election set to take place now that Fallon is now heading to Congress.
“You better bet I’m putting my hat in the ring,” Luther said at a “Back the Blue” rally in support of law enforcement in Denton County.
Luther established herself as a folk hero for many on the right in 2020 after she received jail time for contempt of court after refusing to apologize for reopening her salon in violation of the law. Two days later she was set free following Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to remove the threat of jail time from an executive order. The Texas Supreme Court then granted a motion for her release.
During the rally, Luther marketed herself as an individual who would “stand up and go to jail for you.” Luther declared that she would “do it again and again because I’m gonna fight to keep our Texas values.” She posted these comments in a Twitter video.

Luther will more than likely have challengers for her seat. Denton Mayor Chris Watts appointed a campaign treasurer for the vacant seat, and Republican State Representative Drew Springer is also eyeing the state Senate seat.
Former State Representative Jonathan Stickland recently purchased property inside Senate District 30 but admitted last week that he is ineligible to participate in this race. Per the Texas Constitution, people running for state Senate must live in the district for a year before the election.
Should Luther win, she would be a great addition to a Texas state legislature that has been filled with disappointment in recent legislative sessions.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
