I’ve not been following the Texas gubernatorial election, but this is insane

21 Oct

From the Federalist:

It wasn’t enough for Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for governor of Texas, to claim that her opponent — who is wheelchair-bound — doesn’t care about disabled people. Now she and her campaign are claiming that Abbott might also want to ban interracial marriage.

There’s only one problem: Abbott’s wife Cecilia is Hispanic.

Oops!

I thought the Republicans were the stupid party, and Democrats the evil one.

In Texas, seems the latter are both evil and stupid, these days.

    Good if only conservatives don’t help leftism by either making it work somewhat or moderating it so as to make it palatable akin to instead allowing the water to boil more quickly they slow down the process and hence allow the normalization of perversion and so it is to this day victory after victory for the left.

    Alas, indeed. It’s like a ratchet; it only turns one way, left in this case; and conservatives simply allow progs to consolidate their gains, rather than actually reversing their legislation, etc.

    (Re the ratchet effect)

    I don’t know, sometimes Texas manages to enact some pretty bold reforms!

    Not exactly against Progressivism in this case, but impressive nevertheless. Just last weekend I was talking to a (liberal, for whatever it’s worth) friend of mine, a new doctor who is finishing his residency and deciding where he would like to build his medical career. He’s looking at Texas, for exactly this kind of reason.

    Impossible accomplishments like that and Walker’s Wisconsin (which does represent a reversal of Progressive gains) give me some measure of hope for the future.

    @ Chillingworth: That’s interesting; it makes Texas’ legal system more like Canada’s; here, you pay if you lose, and indeed we don’t have the American culture of litigation; few frivolous lawsuits, as y’all do there…

    Yes, I’ve heard good things about Wisconsin under Walker.

    There are some signs of encouragement.

    Yup. An old Texas cynic I once new (God rest his soul) once told me that while purgatory would consist of having to watch American national election campaigns nonstop for several centuries, hell would be having to endure Texas political campaigns for all of eternity.

    I always like tormenting Republicans by asking them which one of Clinton’s policies did Bush reverse when the he had control of all three branches of government for 8 years?

    BTW, it torments progs too whenever they criticize Republicans—ask them what the Republicans ever did that actually changed anything.

    @Will S.

    Conservatives lack 1st principles on which they base themselves on that’s why they keep getting dragged along.

    What do you think of them doing political jujitsu? You know if conservatives reverse the policies they could easily be painted as evil. But if they accelerated leftist policies or allowed them to go all the way so that leftist fail be apparent to all likewise the people will likely revolt because change has happened quick enough that like a frog in a pot that suddenly found itself boiling. Then having decredited the left reverse the policies.

    @ feeriker: Ha! 🙂

    @ Eric: Double ha! 🙂

    @ infowarrior1: They’re not bright enough to think that way. Nor are the voters going to recognize, when Republicans go along with Democrats, that they didn’t push the legislation that had such detrimental effects; by not going against such vigorously, they don’t get themselves well established as being in opposition to it.

    I think they’d be better off to loudly and vigorously protest it now, come what may, and later, if voters are bright and informed enough to recognize the devastation caused by such, then they’d remember or could be reminded how vigorously the Republicans opposed it.

    But voters are just as dumb as the Republican leadership, alas.

    Texas is playing host to some of the most vile leftism in the nation unfortunately.

    Remember the infanticide protests there featured signs that profaned Christ in ways I won’t mention, chants of “hail satan!”, and bags full of feces and urine.

    The city of Houston, ruled currently by what it would be fair to say is a cross between a bull dyke and Kathleen Scabelius, just subpoenaed pastors’ sermons in a preemptive assault on the faith, clearly designed to intimidate. It won’t be long before any worship of the Lord is confined to whispers in alleyways and root cellars.

    Thankfully, it is under that hostility that the faith has often become purer, more fervent and potent, and its adherents suffused with the heroic spirit that will be required at the closing of this dark age.

    Is the illegal immigration of people from Central American going to stop in Texas? It’s an invasion and they’re a majority in terms of percentage throughout certain USA zones now (California, Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, etc). In addition, the shittier parts of the population from south of the border are the ones being transported (in the old Spanish colonial caste system, they would be called Indios, or Native Amerindians). It’s like the rich elites in Mexico, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Honduras and other countries are dumping the crap of their nation unto the U.S.A.

    Perhaps a national group should start sterilizing the entire illegal population, both male and female alike.

    If not, then at least make it a default 1 child policy. That way, with a drop in their fertility, the illegal population should halve itself from 50 million to about 25 million in the next generation.

    But most of all, deportation should be enforced 100%. The U.S.A. has an invasion for heavens’s sake.

    How about a 1 child policy for illegals, Will S?

    Remember that Mexican elites are huge hypocrites. They’re dumping the bad parts of their populace unto the U.S.A. yet enforce their own sourthern border with other central american nations like crazy.

    If I was a smarter bird, I would hire terrorists from the Middle East to hunt down the rulers of these Banana Republics who are making money from this scheme and assasinate them.

    They have no right. Absolutely, no right to call other people “racists” (e.g. skin color, ethnic features, hair type) when they’re the biggest colorists around on the planet.

    alcest, for now, America is hooped. Some elements of the GOP oppose the status quo, but others, esp. those who benefit from cheap labour, are quite fine with the Reconquista. And they marginalize anyone who disagrees with them as racist. They’re not going to allow other Republicans to stop the steady flow of illegal aliens across the border.

    The rich, elite Spanish-speaking descendants south of the border are just jealous that the U.S.A. actually brought their own women with them, instead of leaving them behind and shagging darker foreign women. Their mestizo population is into drunk driving, drug trading and other stuff.

    And who should be blamed?

    In my opinion the Spanish conquistadores (as well as the Portuguese) should have brought their own women with them and segregated. Instead, perhaps the only stigma against miscegenation south of the border is that of against indios (Native Amerindian men) and negros (Black men). Basically, they were sex-biased, which is stupid when it comes to ethnicity. What difference does it make to assimilate the shittier parts of the female versus the male? Both are bad in the end.

    I think the caste system in Central-South America is even worse than India (South Asia). Hilariously, Indian people along centuries of conquest assimilated foreign dark-skinned women into their population as well and that damaged their morale (which is why modern-day India heavily dislikes duskier women).

    I’ve always been fascinated at how different the approaches were, between Mexico and Argentina: Argentina did bring over white women, and so they, and Uruguay, have mostly white populations, while Mexico has mixed, and other Latin American countries have various degrees of mixed and pure (interestingly, though, Venezuela is almost completely mixed, between white, Indian, and black, not sure of proportions, but they’re different than their Colombian neighbours).

    Some Spanish colonies set up caste systems, others successfully swamped the native population by breeding with imported white women, others largely blended with the natives, except for a small white elite.

    All this, despite traditional ‘limpieza del sangre’ attitudes amongst Spaniards at home…

    Here in Canada, the French brought white women into New France – Quebec, Acadia – but as men pushed outwards with the fur trade, they intermarried with Indian women and gave rise to a new tribe, the Metis, who are like Mexico’s mestizos, except they’ve more or less kept their Indian consciousness, and see themselves generally as aboriginals, a new aboriginal tribe that is; one only French really in terms of their Catholic religion, and their names; even though ostensibly they speak French, in reality, they have their own patois, which mixes Indian words with French. Oh, and because of the French of New France having picked up fiddle music through intermarriage with Irish and Scots, the Metis also have a fiddle tradition. So, we have a Catholic, fiddle-playing, French-named Indian race, who consider themselves native peoples, because of the half that is that. 🙂

    Not to mention, colonial Brazil (during the slave trade and early waves of immigration) had bias against black men breeding and largely tried to curtail their reproduction (e.g. mostly overworking them to death and diseases).

    The good question is where the bias against “negros” (black men) in Brazil come from? Black women (matriarchal)? Arab slave traders (castration/genital mutilation)? Foreign European groups (later waves of immigration) such as Italian, German, Polish and Ukrainian?

    Any ideas Will S.?

    Perhaps the best thing should be to impose patriarchy on the castizos, mestizos and Native Amerindians for centuries (500 years) and even milleniums (about 2000 years). Places such as Mexico can perhaps become more civilized in the future.

    On the other hand, I feel sorry for those which absorbed black females into their population. What a shitty idea, since they’re quite uncivilized, and the black race is both dark-skinned (low status) and matriarchal.

    I don’t know, alcest. Could be any or all of those sources.

    Patriarchy is good for everyone, of all backgrounds.
