Tweet 5 above…Dan Crenshaw is a public official. He is in violation of Texas’ new voter suppression laws. Sadly, there probably is no law enforcement officer available in his Congressional district to arrest him or a prosecutor to charge him.
He’s so disgusting. He’s over the top in a way that’d make him unbelievable as the antagonist in an 80s cartoon. Cobra Commander looks at him and tells him to ease up on the comic book villain vibes.
Wow! A Republican hypocrite. Who’d have thunk.
I’m sure the Texas state Dems will respond to this with a sternly worded press release.
And the “apoplectic hand wringing”, don’t forget that, it’s there best weapon against the GQP.
That Gent has the same beard as me, mine is better, as you would expect.
Crenshaw likened expansion of voting by mail to “playing with fire” and said that it could increase voter fraud
voter fraud which is already bad enough, thanks to his own party.
How is this different than campaigning at the polls on election night? There are laws that keep campaigns a certain distance from polling places, this is basically him being inside the booth telling you who to vote for.
Face it. The GOP has a long standing problem with the idea of “fairness.” They like to redefine what it means to suit their purposes.
Whoaa there! Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We’ll have to form a committee and decide how to “raise awareness” first.
See, this is why the Democrats are doomed.
Instead of whining about how unfair it is that he’s doing this, they should start sending out their own mail-in ballots.
Ah hah! But then there will be law enforcement available to arrest Democratic candidates and prosecutors to charge them.
Even Kevin Sorbo, the 1990s-Hercules-TV-actor-turned-alt-right-evangelical-nutjob, apparently has enough self-awareness to know this shit is wrong:
And what happens when they get in legal hotwater for it, and the GOP continues to get away with it?
Someone should ask him what he thinks about the recent spate of right wing book banning?
If that’s not what his post from two days ago was referencing then I’m not sure what he’s talking about. I suppose there might be some right-wing narrative going around Twitter about how the Left is burning their books or something but honestly I don’t think I have it in me to look into that today.
Oh! Sorry. I just saw the second tweet’s date and thought they were both from last march!
You might well be right and it’s pure naiveté on my part that Sorbo’s most recent tweet had anything to do with the current Republican efforts to ban books. But if that’s not the case then it would represent a tremendous lack of self-awareness on his part. Herculean, even.
