Last week, several Texas Republicans decided to join Democrats in destroying American history.
Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard noted that these spineless congressional Republicans did so, while Republicans in the Texas State legislature “made protecting and preserving historical monuments, statues, and other items a legislative priority, six of the individuals they elected to Congress voted to remove them from the U.S. Capitol” a few days prior.
On July 23, 2020, the U.S. House voted 305-113 to remove statues of figures who fought for the South during the Civil War.
These votes in favor of destroying American history came from a 100% united Democrat party vote and 71 Republicans who decided to kneel before the politically correct mob. Waltens pointed out that these elected officials who voted for removing the statues included: “U.S. Congressmen Michael Burgess of Flower Mound, Van Taylor of Plano, Dan Crenshaw of Houston, Michael McCaul of Austin, Will Hurd of San Antonio, and Pete Olson of Sugar Land.”
Crenshaw declared that he was “glad” to have voted for the statues’ removal from the nation’s capital.
Republicans won the civil war. That’s our history.
Democrats have a long list of segregationists & KKK members. That’s their history.
I’m glad to help them confront that racist past & voted to remove these Democrat statues from positions of prominence.https://t.co/D9KGH4Kz6b

On the other hand, Congressman Chip Roy voted against removing the monuments. He argued that “Democrats love to play politics with race while the people they purport to help are suffering at the hands of their ‘caring’ policies.”
According to the bill passed by the U.S. House, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. would receive 11 statues as donations or states who originally donated them would receive them instead.
The bill’s passage comes at a time when iconoclastic hysteria is running high in American politics. Elected officials are also pushing the Pentagon to rename 10 U.S. Army facilities after Confederate generals, which includes Texas’ Fort Hood.
Texas Republican Congressman Mac Thornberry supported including a provision mandating that the Pentagon rename the bases in the legislation to fund the nation’s armed forces.
“Obviously, I do not agree with everything in the bill,” Thornberry commented. “But, on balance, it’s a good bill; and in some particulars, it’s a very good bill.”
The Trump administration has threatened to veto this legislation.
“President Trump has been clear in his opposition to politically motivated attempts like this to rewrite history and to displace the enduring legacy of the American Revolution with a new left-wing cultural revolution,” a White House spokesman said to POLITICO.
Unfortunately, many Republicans are not on the same page during this culture war. If they don’t get their act together, they will soon become politically irrelevant.
Standing up to protect artifacts of American history is a good place to start.
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.
