Brooklyn GOP Socially Distances Itself from the Brooklyn Young Republican Club

Published

on

On August 6, 2020, the Kings County Republican County Committee decided to break ties with the Brooklyn Young Republican Club. Joel Acevedo, the President of the Young Republican Club, claimed in a post that the King County decided to do so “with no notice, no charges and no opportunity to partake in any deliberations.”

In a tweet that he posted on that same day, he claimed that this was the second time the Brooklyn Young Republican Club had its ties severed from the King County GOP. He tweeted, “For the second time in 9 years–a record-breaking distinction,@KingsCountyGOP tonight has once again decided to sever ties with the Brooklyn Young Republican Club with no notice, no charges and no opportunity to partake in any deliberations. #NYC #Brooklyn

In the same post, Acevedo asserted that the “leadership of the Brooklyn GOP arbitrarily refused any and all communications with our organization months ago at the start of an election cycle, we see that they are sticking to their typical ‘winning’ electoral strategies.”

Additionally, Acevedo claimed that the Brooklyn GOP was demanding “100% fealty to MAGA and Trump in order to be a good Republican and embracing racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric that appeals to exactly 24% of New Yorkers and 0% of the United States Constitution, we’re not exactly sorry to see them go.”

He concluded by saying that his organization will “continue to pursue actions that make the Republican Party internally and externally the best vehicle for advancing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all. And we’ll let Brooklyn Republican Party leadership do what it does best: lose elections while eating its own.”

Acevedo was put on blast by New York Young Republican Club President Gavin Wax for his milquetoast response to the radical leftist mobs led by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Such politically correct behavior should not be rewarded by the GOP. In all honesty, ostracizing such individuals and their affiliates is the way to go moving forward for a GOP that is serious about maintaining a national populist image.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

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.

Fallon added:

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.
