In its latest message to conservative voters across the state of Texas, an advocacy group is sounding the alarm about a Republican senator who is blocking two bills aiming to protect historical monuments from liberal statue fanatics, according to reports.
The group’s efforts appear to be successful. New information reveals that Republican Sen. Kel Seliger from the Dallas, Texas area, has since committed to support the bill, which goes to the floor Monday, May 6.
Conservative Response Team’s ad, at 30 seconds long, implored voters to bombard the state senator’s office with demands to protect Texas historical monuments by voting in the affirmative to let SB 1663 (filed by Sen. Brandon Creighton) to leave the Rules Committee and be places on the calendar for a floor vote of the full state Senate.
Previously, Seliger was intent on blocking the bill, citing a farcical “local issues” defense as a reason he refused to act.
Dallas, Houston, Austin; liberal cities in a cultural war against American history. Last year Alabama passed a law protecting historical monuments. Georgia was next and their law was signed last week. … There’s 18 votes to pass the bill but it needs 19 and Seliger is the lone holdout.
Seliger, along with fellow Republican Sen. Joan Huffman from Houston, Texas — were both holdouts against legislation designed to protect the 60-ft., 80-year-old Alamo Memorial Cenotaph from certain “relocation,” i.e., destruction, as part of Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s highly unpopular Alamo rennovation plan.
Bush signed and approved the “Re-Imagine the Alamo” master plan last October in the wake of contentious Republican primary elections — contentious primarily because of his stated plan to tear down and demolish the vaunted and revered “Cenotaph,” which simply means, “empty tomb.”
We reported on Bush’s numerous public statements and attempts to demolish the Cenotaph here, here, and here — with one hearing in this past legislative session even featuring testimony from Alamo-famous Col. William B. Travis’ great granddaughter.
Bush in statements before the Senate Finance Committee in December, 2017, told Sen. Joan Huffman — then a member of that committee — that “the Cenotaph will always stand … It will always be on the grounds of the Alamo.” When further examined in the context of his own “master plan” and “truth” websites (funded by Bush reelection campaign dollars), the neophyte’s statements take on a quite different meaning.
His comments to Huffman, who grilled Bush thoroughly, ring close to those given by impeached former President Bill Clinton when being asked about his affair with Monica Lewinsky:
“It depends upon what the meaning of is, is.”
The master plan also calls for removing and relocating the “Cenotaph,” the tall marble memorial to those who died in the Battle of the Alamo:
“Carefully disassemble the structure and conserve all the marble sections in a controlled environment. Provide a new structure [non – corrosive assembly instead of reinforced concrete].”
“Several potential locations were considered. The proposed location … will provide appropriate context and symbolism for the structure,” the master plan continues.
Many disagree with Bush’s premise that it’s best to respect the Alamo monument by tearing it apart and moving it somewhere else. To the contrary, former Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson took issue with the name of Bush’s redesign program, i.e. “Re-Imagine the Alamo” in a recent TV interview.
“We don’t need to reimagine the Alamo,” Patterson said. “We need to remember, revere and respect the Alamo; that’s why it [the Cenotaph] needs to stay,” he told NBC affiliate KXAN in San Antonio.
For Patterson, the Alamo provides appropriate context and symbolism for the structure — because it is where the men memorialized by the Cenotaph fought and died.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
