In perhaps the biggest show of cowardice we’ve seen in a long time, Texas Democrats fled the state to block passage of a voting bill. These Democrats—who oddly want to kill the U.S. Senate filibuster—prevented the state from conducting business by running away to Washington.
The stunt has not gone over well with Texas. The governor promised to arrest those lawmakers who fled, once they returned. The Texas state House issued warrants for the fleeing Democrats. And the state Speaker is demanding they return—and not get paid for this trip.
Yet these out-of-touch liberals are pretending they are some kind of heroes of freedom. Some of them are trying to make it seem like they are suffering for the cause. In fact, their allies in Dallas actually had the nerve to ask for care packages for these entitled, selfish, law-breaking liberals.
It did not go over well.
The Dallas Democratic Party faced backlash on Sunday after soliciting care packages for the Texas Democratic lawmakers who fled the state earlier this month…
“Our Dems in DC said they’d appreciate care packages from home,” the Dallas Democrats tweeted. “Before 5pm Tues, we’re collecting Dr. Pepper, salsa, hard candy, hairspray, travel toiletries, hand sanitizers, sewing kits, first aid, and/ or $ to pay shipping. TY!”
Comfortably Smug: “They can have all their basic needs met when they go back to Texas and get sent to jail. The audacity of these people to ask for handouts when there are Americans struggling.”
Clay Travis: “The Democrats who abandoned Texas are asking for care package donations?! They are grown adults in Washington, DC refusing to do their taxpayer funded jobs. And they are surrounded by plenty of stores where they can buy whatever they want. Pathetic.”
Matt Whitlock: “Important to note that these lawmakers are still getting $221/day in per diem from taxpayers, had private flights and luxury hotel rooms paid for, and are just sitting in hotel conference rooms doing zoom meetings. If you’re feeling charitable please find a better cause.” [Source: Daily Wire]
This is truly the height of arrogance and entitlement. These Democrats are so corrupt, so oblivious to their own crookedness, they had the gall to ask for care packages while they were refusing to commit to their obligations.
The graphic on the tweet asking for packages called the “freedom fighters.” Wow. These people really are insane, huh? They are breaking state laws, fleeing from their jobs, disrupting the flow of government business. And for what, freedom? Hardly. They don’t want bills passed that would make it hard for people to commit voter fraud.
What heroes! I can’t wait to tell my grandchildren about how a group of spoiled, selfish, attention-seeking whores wasted millions of tax dollars so illegal aliens could steal our elections!
Where do I send my care package of hard candy and salsa?
I hope every Texas voter is watching this, right now, and is ready to vote come the next election.
