Texas ‘Liberty’ Rep. Jonathan Stickland Betrays Texas Gun Rights Activists By Video Scolding

Stickland has claimed to be a pro-liberty lawmaker since winning office in 2013, but has shown his true colors under the pressure.

Texas State Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) shocked his pro-Constitution constituents by siding with anti-gun Republican House leadership to throw grassroots gun rights activists under the bus.

“Recently, I have seen and been made aware of some of the most concerning behavior I have witnessed in my time as a legislator. I am saddened by the acts of a few individuals who have stolen the conversation about legislation that I deeply care about,” Stickland said in a Facebook video chastizing gun rights advocates of Texas.

Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen (R-Angleton) killed Stickman’s ‘Constitutional Carry’ bill after protesters fliered the door of his home. Apparently considering himself to be royalty, Bonnen saw this civic activism to be an egregious, intolerable act akin to an ISIS attack.

“I could no longer watch as legislators and their families are incessantly harassed by fanatical gun-rights activists who think laws preventing criminals from carrying a gun should be repealed,” said the sanctimonious Bonnen in a written comment, according to The Statesman.

“Their goal is to eradicate sensible gun policies by allowing anyone to carry a gun without a license and proper training — making it impossible for law enforcement to distinguish between law-abiding gun owners and criminals,” Bonnen said, making it clear he is an enemy of the 2nd Amendment. “The fear and terror used to push this agenda has made it clear this is bad public policy.”

Additionally, Bonnen was caught lying about the story he told the press to paint his conservative constituents as threats to public safety. He initially claimed his wife was in the house at the time Texas Gun Rights’ Executive Director, Chris McNutt showed up with fliers.

“With that said, do I think this bad policy? Yes. So I’m not running from that,” Bonnen told the Houston Chronicle. “The bigger point is they can attack me all they want, but don’t go to my residence when you know there’s zero opportunity of my being there … don’t go where my two sons and my wife are and I am not.”

But it was later revealed in a Fort-Worth Star Telegram report that Bonnen’s wife, Kim, was not in the premises when McNutt showed up. Only a teenage son was inside Bonnen’s home at the time of the supposed incident.

Mrs. Bonnen even had the audacity to claim to be traumatized by McNutt’s choice of clothes claiming that “showing up with a T-shirt with a machine gun on it” was “freaking me out. … This cannot become how we advocate.”

McNutt believes that Bonnen is just making up a lame excuse for refusing to live up to his oath to the Constitution.

“If politicians like Speaker Dennis Bonnen think they can show up at the doorsteps of Second Amendment supporters and make promises to earn votes in the election season, they shouldn’t be surprised when we show up in their neighborhoods to insist they simply keep their promises in the legislative session,” McNutt said to the Dallas News.

“He is trying to paint the simple act of leaving a flyer on the doors of hundreds of his constituents and donors – asking them to contact their legislators to support a bill – is somehow an act of intimidation,” McNutt said in a video message posted on the Texas Gun Rights’ Facebook page.

Unfortunately, Stickland lacked the courage to stand for his supporters who pushed for his ‘Constitutional Carry’ legislation. Stickland followed the lead of the House Speaker in conjunction with the National Rifle Association and the Texas State Rifle Association to violate his oath to the Constitution and denigrate patriotic individuals for grassroots activism with misrepresentations.

“There is a right way and a wrong way to influence the legislative process… There is never a time or place to physically threaten an elected official with violence. It is never okay or helpful to your cause to curse out their staff. It’s never okay to target their homes or personal businesses when you know they are not in town,” Stickland said, giving orders to the peasants on how they may use their rights.

Stickland’s patriotic Facebook following smelled a rat and immediately took this slovenly legislator to task for his colossal betrayal.

“If this lawmaker had a shred of integrity, he would not allow the actions of a few affect his responsibility to do the right thing for the masses of gun owners in the state who did not show up at his home and did not send threatening messages,” FOX Business political analyst Jan Morgan wrote.

“He is coward lacking in integrity and looking for any excuse to shirk his responsibility to the people,” Morgan added. “He needs a good opponent in the next primary.”

“You used to be the best legislator in the country and now you are backtracking,” former Tennessee Campaign for Liberty activist Matt Collins wrote. “NEVER throw your allies under the bus and NEVER give the enemy cover. You should delete this video immediately and apologize.”

“While I have also been an avid supporter of you and your efforts to promote constitutional carry in Texas for years I can no longer support you or your efforts at this time,” constituent Jerry McWhorter wrote. “By making this video you have essentially shown an example of how red flag laws work by condemning an individual without proof of a crime. You just lost my vote in the next election.”

It doesn’t seem likely that an oathbreaker like Stickland, with his lack of a backbone and fealty to GOP establishment leadership, will ever achieve any results for Texas gun owners. Texas Republicans might be wise to consider a primary challenge against him in 2020.

Note: Stickland was contacted for a statement, but had not replied by the time of publication.

New York Young Republicans Threaten to Sue Gov. Andrew Cuomo Following Attacks Against 1st Amendment

They will not bow to Cuomo’s tyranny.

Published

The New York Young Republicans are under fire from the Democrat establishment for planning to hold an in-person event as Gov. Andrew Cuomo is instituting another business-crippling lockdown.

The group is not backing down under fire, as evidenced by a Twitter thread from the group’s president, Gavin Wax. Wax has said that his group will strike back in court if state thugs unduly restrict their 1st Amendment right to organize politically.

Additionally, Wax appeared on the “War Room” podcast to discuss the entire situation on Wednesday:

Big League Politics has covered the New York Young Republican club as they have stood boldly against Cuomo’s persecution of Jewish groups:

A controversial crack down by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio against Hasidic Jews was met with sharp criticism by Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Earlier this week, many Hasidic Jews took to the streets to protest Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new restrictions on schools, businesses, and places of worship in nine neighborhoods with rising Wuhan virus cases.

The New York Young Republican Club criticized the de Blasio government’s “radical and inconsistent enforcement actions” against Jewish worshippers practicing their faith during, Sukkot, an important Jewish holiday.

In a statement it released on October 8, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club asserted that “The rights of all Americans to assemble, whether in religious celebration or protest, cannot and should not be infringed and even in a global pandemic can be observed with the proper safeguards and health awareness.”

The Republican organization called attention to how New York City leadership has messed up political priorities by “allowing extremism from left to continue unabated and un-policed, from blocking streets and bridges to looting and rioting, while not hesitating to condemn and disturb the peaceful exercise of Jews’ religious rites.”

In addition, it argued that “arbitrary application of regulations and safeguards under the guise of public health and safety reeks of selective priority and in a time when so many have died, while some turn to government and progressivism as a religion for comfort, others turn to God and de Blasio should not stand in the way.”

More populist anger is rapidly building against Cuomo and other lockdown proponents who want to replace the Bill of Rights and Constitution with permanent technocracy.

The New York Young Republicans event is scheduled to take place at 6pm tonight in an undisclosed location. The guests of honor will be Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and journalist James O’Keefe.
