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.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
