Latest Republican Insanity:

Thousands of the Texas Republican party faithful voted yesterday on a state GOP platform that calls being gay an "abnormal lifestyle choice," declares the 2020 presidential election results illegitimate, and urges the repeal of the Voting Rights Act.

The platform says that Texas students should be shown live ultrasounds as a way to deter against abortion and be taught that life begins at fertilization. At the same time, it demands that the state outlaw all sex and sexual health education—even abstinence-only sex ed.

Meanwhile, it says that young people are the "most likely to need to defend themselves" and thus should have access to guns without waiting periods for "emergencies such as riots. And, doubling down on the anti-LGBTQ hate, the platform says the party "oppose[s] all efforts to validate transgender identity," calling for bans on gender-affirming care for trans children.

The Texas GOP needs a top-to-bottom house cleaning.

If Texas Republicans don’t take the extremists out, look for the state to go Democrat.


The Texas Republican party faithful should be called out for the "abnormal thinking choices", i.e. their total refusal to use their own brains.

The term "cult" applies to that kind of group behavior.


They are sick.

Faith and truth do not go hand in hand, when someone is believing a lie then truth is their greatest enemy. That being the case, the next greatest enemy of faith is education, the learning of the truth.


I can't help but think that they have been emboldened by the Supreme Court leak that Roe will be overturned.

Anger. Sadness. Nausea.

Texas is well known for its abundance of “good” Christians, so this does not surprise me. (I’ve heard that the first thing people ask you when you are new there is, “what church do you attend”?)

For decades, I've responded instantly with, "I don't." And then let them squirm.
