Texas House Speaker Lashes out at Pro-Lifers, Second Amendment Supporters

The Texas House Speaker seems to think conservative policies are a waste of time.

The Republican Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, Dennis Bonnen, took an adversarial tone when speaking about two of the GOP’s loyal constituencies- pro-lifers and gun right supporters. Bonnen was speaking to reporters at the Texas Capitol about a conservative pressure group called Empower Texans that seeks to hold Republican state legislators to their campaign promises.

Bonnen seemed to think the policy priorities proposed by groups such as Empower Texans- and other groups such as Texas Right to Life and Texas Gun Rights- are simply a waste of time. Speaking in frank terms about pro-life legislation, Bonnen shot down the possibility of bringing up new pro-life bills for a vote in the State House.

They aren’t worth responding to,” Bonnen said in regard to accusations from conservatives that he had failed to advance pro-life legislation. “If we passed every pro-life bill filed in the history of the state, they would say we had not done enough. You will never please or appease those folks and I’m sure as hell not going to waste my time trying.

Bonnen’s description of pro-life policies as a lost cause in the nation’s biggest Republican state left many local conservative activists scratching their heads in confusion. Texas lags well behind other Republican states in cracking down on abortion, lacking both an Alabama-style ban or a time limit akin to Missouri’s ban on abortions eight weeks into pregnancy.

Bonnen also seems to have consigned an open-carry law sought after by Second Amendment supporters to the legislative dustbin. The legislation, which failed to get a public hearing after a dispute between Bonnen and Texas gun rights organizations, would have allowed legal gun owners to openly carry weapons without a permit, placing Texas on par with several other pro-gun states such as Arizona and New Mexico.

When it comes to actually moving the ball on conservative policies, Dennis Bonnen seems to be absent without leave.

EQUALITY: Tennessee Legislation Would Give Discretion to Fathers Regarding Abortions

This is what fairness looks like.

Published

on

Two Tennessee state legislators have introduced legislation that would allow a father to file an injunction against the pregnant mother to stop him from ending the baby’s life.

State senator Mark Pody (R) filed SB0494 in the state senate while state representative Jerry Sexton (R) introduced HB1079 in the state house. The legislation would permit “a person to petition a court for an injunction to prohibit a woman who is pregnant with the person’s unborn child from obtaining an abortion.”

Additionally, the legislation gives the petitioner the ability “to execute a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity that is not subject to being rescinded or challenged.”

“If he can prove to the courts that he is the father, the biological father, then he has rights to what’s going on with his son or daughter,” Pody said, as reported by FOX 17 News.

FOX 17 News issued a poll to gauge the support of the measure and it is practically deadlocked, showing how equality is shamefully rejected by much of the masses:

Leftist special interest groups are outraged at the notion, calling this push for true equality an attack on women’s rights.

“This unconstitutional legislation demonstrates the condescending mindset underlying this bill: that men should control women’s bodies,” ACLU of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg said in a statement. “Women are not chattel and this bill needs to be stopped in its tracks.”

“This extreme and dangerous bill would even allow a rapist to stop his victim from ending a pregnancy,” Weinberg added.

Abortion proponents are inventing absurd hypotheticals in an attempt to deny basic equality for fathers. Planned Parenthood wants to protect its very lucrative fetal chop shop racket, after all.

“A pregnant person must have the ultimate control over their body and their pregnancy. The legislature needs to stop trying to distract the public from their leadership failures with increasingly stigmatizing abortion restrictions,” said Francie Hunt, who works as the executive director of Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood.

“Nobody should have the power to make health care decisions for someone else — not a judge, a partner, and certainly not a rapist regardless of paternity,” Hunt added.

It turns out that feminists and social justice warriors don’t really want equality. They only want freedom from responsibility, which includes the “right” to murder a baby in the womb. This legislation in Tennessee evens the score and more states should consider similar measures secure to men’s rights.
