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

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
