Despite all the chatter about Texas becoming a swing state in 2020, Texas conservatives could breathe a sigh of relief once votes were cast in the Lone Star State. President Donald Trump won the state by a comfortable 6 margin, Republicans defended this Senate seat, Democrats could not make any gains in Congress, and the Texas State House stayed red.
Many groups such as Gun Owners of America were elated by this news. Rachel Malone, the Texas Director for Gun Owners of America, and Felisha Bull, the Texas Deputy Director for Gun Owners of America, sent out an email to GOA subscribers titled “Keeping Texas, Texas.”
In the email, they declared that in “In the race between Bloomberg and Texas, Bloomberg lost.” The pro-Second Amendment operatives were referring to billionaire oligarch Michael Bloomberg’s financial contributions to flip the state to Democrats during the 2020 election cycle.
One of GOA’s champions, Texas congressman Chip Roy, won his race by a 52 percent to 45 percent margin. This was one race Democrats were salivating over as a potential seat to flip. This turned out to not be the case.
The GOA leaders emphasized their strong position in the Texas House, which many “experts” predicted would flip:
For months, we’ve heard pollsters and pundits tell us that gun-grabbing challengers were going to take over the Texas House. Gun control organizations fought hard to oust our Gun Owner’s Choice candidates. But, although votes are still being tallied, current numbers show that not one of our GOA-endorsed State Representative incumbents lost a seat.
The no compromise gun lobby listed of some of their endorsed candidates who came out victorious on election night:
- HD 2 Bryan Slaton
- HD 5 Cole Hefner
- HD 6 Matt Schaefer
- HD 15 Steve Toth
- HD 23 Mayes Middleton
- HD 26 Jacey Jetton
- HD 59 Shelby Slawson
- HD 73 Kyle Biedermann
- HD 92 Jeff Cason
- HD 93 Matt Krause
- HD 94 Tony Tinderholt
- HD 106 Jared Patterson
- HD 128 Briscoe Cain
- HD 130 Tom Oliverson
- HD 132 Mike Schofield
- HD 138 Lacey Hull
- CD 1 Louie Gohmert
- CD 3 Van Taylor
- CD 13 Ronny Jackson
- CD 14 Randy Weber
- CD 21 Chip Roy
- CD 24 Beth Van Duyne
- CD 27 Michael Cloud
- 431st District Court Judge Jim Johnson
Due to the election of a number of first time candidates who received GOA endorsements, the Texas House will have new advocates for improving Texas gun laws and promoting grassroots agenda items such as Constitutional Carry and ending gun-free zones.
The Texas legislature is set to start its session on January 12, 2021.
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.
