Outgoing Congressman Will Hurd claimed that “there won’t be a Republican Party” if it doesn’t embrace diversity during an interview with Alexi McCammond for “Axios on HBO.”
Hurd announced in August that he won’t be running for re-election in Texas’ 23rd Congressional district. His decision to not run for office is not an isolated incident in Texas politics. A growing number of Texas Republicans are now retiring from Congress.
During his interview, Hurd specifically said “I do believe that if the Republican Party doesn’t start looking like the rest of the country, there won’t be a Republican Party in this country. But we know where the trends are going, and we know what we need to do.”
Hurd also commented on the changing nature of the Texas electorate:
Minorities, people under the age of 29, and women with a college degree in the suburbs are not choosing the Republican Party. So that’s the reality of what we have to do in Texas. And I think I’ve been the vanguard in this fight by showing how to win one of the, if not the, most competitive seat in the United States of America, a 71% Latino district.
The Texas Congressman does raise a valid point about changing demographics. It’s no secret that the radical feminization of women in universities has caused women to shift towards the Left. Political strategist Steve Bannon recognizes that college-educated women may be a lost cause for the modern-day GOP.
Most important and relevant to Texas’ political context is the question of immigration.
Like it or not, Hispanic migration tends to favor the Democratic Party in the long-term.
In fact, BLP’s report on the 2018 elections offer a sneak preview of what continued migration will do to Texas’ political climate. In short, it does not bode well for Republicans’ electability in the Lone Star State.
Additionally, Third World migration brings potential pubic security risks given the propensity of migrants to congregate in ethnic ghettos. Europe has witnessed firsthand the rise of no-go zones thanks to EU immigration policy which favors Third World migrants. Similarly, the socio-economic implications of mass migration paint a bleak picture for American workers as they have to compete against unskilled masses of workers coming into America.
Instead of using leftist talking points, politicians like Hurd should be talking about a transition towards a merit-based immigration system, rescinding immigration policies such as birthright citizenship and chain migration, and making genuine attempts to bolster border security. These kinds of policies can keep the historic American nation intact, while offering opportunities to the world’s most skilled migrants, who are more likely to contribute in a positive way and assimilate.
Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”
Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

“As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.
Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”
Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.https://t.co/ujBGxbWXtR

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
