TV Ad Asks Dan Patrick to Protect Texas’ Historical Monuments

Published

on

AUSTIN, TEXAS — A new TV ad is spotlighting the new Texas Historical Protection bill — which Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick pledged to enact (in order to stop liberal efforts ti “airbrush” and “tear down” Texas history) but the bill is now stalled in committee and there are no signs that will chance, unless Patrick follows through on his earlier pledge, according to reports.

A couple months ago, the Conservative Response Team asked Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in another video to stop the runaway train of statue craziness, whereby liberals are systematically tearing down Texas history (and American history) by passing the new Historical Protection Act under consideration this session, saying he “needs to make this happen … now.”

He hasn’t made it happen; it’s trapped in committee, and furthermore, Patrick was part of the State Preservation Board decision that consigned a Civil War memorial plaque to the ashbin after being on Capitol grounds since 1959.

In the new video, Texas voters are encouraged to contact the “Big Three,” “The Men who run Texas.” The ad reiterates, “They need to act now.”

But yet again, the other two “big three” are not the focus of the ad, since it’s only one individual who can move legislation and set the legislative agenda, urging voters to “Call Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. Tell him it’s time to be the conservative he campaigned to be.”

Though the ad doesn’t mention it, it appears to evoke public sentiments about plans to tear down the iconic Alamo memorial, aka “Cenotaph,” an 80-year-old, 60-foot memorial to the 189 (or more) men who gave their lives for Texas.

Land Commissioner George P. Bush signed an Alamo redesign plan that includes dismantling and relocating the Cenotaph — memorial to the men who died for Texas liberty.

“Carefully disassemble the structure and conserve all the marble sections in a controlled environment,” the plan reads. “Provide a new structure [non – corrosive assembly instead of reinforced concrete],” it continues.

“Several potential locations were considered. The proposed location … will provide appropriate context and symbolism for the structure.”

San Antonio City Council wants to “honor” the men of the Alamo by moving their tombstone to the place where Santa Anna burned their carcasses following his disreputable and savage order of “Deguello” (take no prisoners, kill everyone, women, children, etc.).

In response to Bush’s proposed actions, Patrick committed in recorded audio dated October, 2017, to stop Cenotaph from being torn down. Patrick has not since renewed his commitment to that “line in the sand.”

“The events of 1836 were just one small chapter in 10,000 years of history,” said George Skarmeas, Bush’s Alamo redesign planning director until recently.

The Cenotaph is inscribed thusly,

Erected in memory of the heroes who sacrificed their lives at the Alamo, March 6, 1836, in the defense of Texas. They chose never to surrender nor retreat; these brave hearts, with flag still proudly waving, perished in the flames of immortality that their high sacrifice might lead to the founding of this Texas

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism

Published

on

U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.

He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”

The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”

That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”

Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”

But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.

Sanders is not alone.

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.

From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:

Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.

Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.

In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”

Kobach gets it.

The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.

He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
