Texas State Government Grows a Pair by Threatening to Take Over Austin Police After Threats of Defunding

Published

Even states like Texas have not been exempt from the defund the police mania.

BLP previously reported on Austin Mayor Steve Adler’s move to defund the Austin Police Department by $150 million and shift resources to other services such as providing abortion.

However, the Texas state government will not sit idly by as its capital city begins to subject its citizens to radical leftist experimentation.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton recently revealed that Governor Greg Abbott is flirting with legislation to bring Austin police under the purview of the state government.

Paxton went on Fox News and said: That makes little to no sense and makes our city less safe. We can fund the police in a way that will keep the city safe, which is what we all want.”

On September 3, 2020 Abbott tweeted about this proposal, declaring “We can’t let Austin’s defunding & disrespect for law enforcement to endanger the public & invite chaos like in Portland and Seattle.”

In almost predictable fashion, Mayor Adler pinned the blame on President Trump for the unrest in the city. Back in June, the Austin city council casted a vote of “no confidence” regarding the city’s police leaders. They did so under the guise of trying to end police brutality against minorities. Funny enough, Austin has not had many high-profile instances of police brutality or racial antagonism in recent memory.

I think they’re appeasing left-wing radicals who think this is a good idea,” Paxton stated.

Austin has already been experiencing a significant increase in murders since last summer. BLP previously reported that the city’s murder rate has increased in the last year.

Thankfully, Austin is in Texas — a state with solid gun laws that actually lets people exercise lethal force in self-defense.

Unfortunately, the state’s politics is gradually changing due to shifting demographics and as a result, it could be subject to all sorts of wacky leftist policies should Democrats take power.

Conservatives in the Lone Star State can at least rest easy knowing that they have a governor who will actually stand up for them and push back against the radical Left’s plot to destroy law enforcement.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
