EXCLUSIVE: Former Democrat House Candidate Blasts DCCC Tactics in Texas

Published

on

GEORGETOWN, TEXAS — A previous Democrat primary challenger in the Austin-area race for incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. John Carter’s seat is now criticizing the favorite of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Big League Politics reported Thursday morning, Mar. 7:

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer from New York is recruiting M.J. Hegar, the Democrat who ultimately lost a congressional race in 2018 to Texas Republican Rep. John Carter in Georgetown, Texas.

A veteran, something the DCCC particularly considers a desirable quality for candidates it supports (above any other quality a candidate may possess), Hegar ran a close race against Carter — who barely retained his seat in 2018

The photo above (credit: NYT, 2019) shows that Carter actually lost the traditionally-conservative Williamson County, which is significant indicator of the trends in that part of Texas.

That’s in part because of Dr. Christine Mann — a medical doctor who also ran on the Democratic ticket in 2018 against Rep. Carter.

As TDTNews reported in May, 2018, “Hegar, 42, easily defeated Cedar Park physician Christine Eady Mann, 53, on Tuesday. As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, Hegar had 62.1 percent to Mann’s 37.9 percent.”

Big League Politics reached out to Mann:

“While I am excited that the DCCC is once again targeting District 31, I hope that they will not continue the tactics that they employed in the 2018 House races, including asking ‘non-chosen’ candidates to drop out, discouraging progressive candidates from participating, unfairly connecting only ‘their’ candidates to donor networks, and, in the case of Texas House District 07, outright smearing of a strong candidate.”

Mann is also critical of how the national party machinery is less effective after primaries, and says it is even disruptive during the primaries.

“Voters are best served when Washington elites support their party’s candidates after the primary, and without interference in the primary process,” Mann explained to Big League.

“To do other than that is to imply that they know better than local voters, and that they are afraid to let voters decide who best represents them,” she continued.

Dr. Christine Mann is strongly considering a fresh run in District 31 during the 2020 cycle.

Narrative Buster: Media Ignores Milwaukee Molson Coors Mass Shooter

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
