On September 10, 2020, State Representative Matt Schaefer requested that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton investigate the Netflix film, “Cuties,” for potentially violating child exploitation and child pornography laws.
Schaefer tweeted, “I have asked Texas Attorney General Paxton’s office to investigate the @netflix film “Cuties” for possible violations of child exploitation and child pornography laws. #CUTIES #txlege.”

The French film has received awards from the entertainment’s most depraved critics. But it has naturally received enormous backlash from normal people for its lurid depictions of underaged dancers.
Schaefer’s tweet has received over 40,700 likes.
French-Senegalese filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré defended her work from the growing wave of protests.
“Cuties is a mirror of our society, and I hope that we can all look at each other, and work together to make a better world,” Doucouré claimed. “Imagine if all that energy that was devoted to blindly criticizing my film could be used towards protecting those who need it, and offering new role models.”
According to TheBlaze, a Netflix spokesperson told them the film “is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children.”
“It’s an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up — and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie,” a Netflix official told TheBlaze on August 11.
So far, over 600,000 people have signed on to a petition calling on others to cancel their Netflix subscriptions in protest of this film.
Schafer’s decision to take up this issue shows that several members of the Texas GOP are willing to stand for traditional values and go up against the degeneracy that is being shoved down Americans’ throats.
However, there are still signs of life within the Texas Republican Party and Schafer might just be the guy who gets the party back on track in Texas.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
