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.
“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
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
