Texas Republican Angry that Folks Want More than ‘Thoughts and Prayers’
The Washington Post reports that investigators say the gunman who opened fire on an outlet mall in a Dallas suburb on Saturday, killing at least eight people, had an apparent fascination with white supremacist or neo-Nazi beliefs that are now being examined by investigators as a possible motive for the attack. While a motive has not yet been released, authorities say a patch on the killer’s chest that read “RWDS” is an acronym that stands for Right Wing Death Squad. This is the second mass killing in Texas in just a week. Meanwhile, Republican Rep. Keith Self, who represents Allen, Texas, appeared on CNN and offered more "thoughts and prayers.” When CNN's Paula Reid pointed out that “most Americans demand more concrete actions,” an offended Rep. Self claimed that “those are just people who don’t believe in almighty God, who is absolutely in control of our lives.”
Okay, but if its actually almighty God who is “absolutely in control of our lives,” then how come everything seems to be Joe Biden’s fault? Well, at least he didn’t blame it all on BLM or Antifa. Of course, the truth is that Republican politicians don’t see protecting the general public as part of their job description at all. Why their only job is simply to complain about things. Their feeling is basically, “Sure, a lot of innocent people are getting killed, but on a positive note - at least they’re not getting exposed to “Critical Race Theory” anymore.
So, if I’m understanding this correctly, we’ve been paying these Republican congressmen and women $175,000 a year - just to “pray our problems away?” What a great gig! You see, the way it works is if you’re a Republican, you believe “life begins at the very moment of conception - and it ends looking down the barrel of an AR15 semiautomatic rifle.” Of course, any good Republican will be the first to tell you that the “real” threat to America is not guns, but things like “Drag Queen shows.” Oh really? Well, if that’s the case, “how many people have died watching a “Drag Show?”

“Sure, a lot of innocent people are getting killed, but on a positive note - at least they’re not getting exposed to “Critical Race Theory” anymore." A line I really need to find a spot to insert the next time I have a conversation with my far right twin .
