Texas lawmakers, to avoid a vote, have fled the state mask less in a private jet. More than 50 of them. They are making it as if they are making a sacrifice for freedom.

www.breitbart.com... leeing-state/

Representative James Talarico said he and his fellow Democrats’ are just like other “brave Americans” who have sacrificed throughout history to protect he right to vote,. They have fled the state to deprive Republicans and the voters of Texas a quorum to pass new voting laws.



Texas state Rep. Trey Fischer (D), one of the dozens of Democrat state lawmakers who fled the state as part of a protest against the legislature’s pursual of measures to strengthen election integrity, claimed he and his colleagues chartered a flight to D.C. because “everybody” wanted to see them together.

Speaking on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday, Fischer defended their mode of transportation, contending it was what the people wanted to see.

“So, number one, when you break a quorum you want to be successful, so I think everybody wants to see 51, 52, 55 Democrats on the same plane. That’s reassuring,” Fischer said, referring to the picture showing several maskless, smiling Democrat lawmakers aboard the plane:

“Number two, to get a flight out of town at a time certain – you know, getting everybody to come if from across the state – you need to fly privately,” Fischer continued, attempting to make the plane sound more ordinary by noting the absence of “fancy couches.”

“And, as you can see from the picture, we’re talking about the same kind of plane that the public uses every day,” he said. “There are no fancy couches or anything like that. This was just a regular plane that moved us from one state to another.”

Gov. Greg Abbott has said that the lawmakers will be arrested when hey arrive back in Texas. The State House has the right to issue a call to those members who are missing and it is not because of a valid excuse.

These are not BLM activists. These are not people who should skirt their duties as elected officials and it is about time that people like this are held responsible for their actions.

The WH of course has commented.



Vice President Kamala Harris is among those who have lavished the Democrats with praise, describing them as “leaders” who are “marching in the path that so many others before did when they fought and many died for our right to vote.”


What is appauling is that they are trying to say that the voice of the voter is not being heard by laws that will be enacted but at the same time they are not doing what all of their constituents want so THEY are actually hindering the will of the American Voter.

Mask less. Private charter. Case of Lite beer. A vacation. They need to get back to the state of Texas and face the music.





They should be ashamed. All of them.

The individual is obsolete. Also, these people are disgusting. Immoral hypocrites.

Did you express a similar opinion when Republican lawmakers in Oregon did the same thing back in 2019, 2020, and earlier this year?

Republicans did it in Oregon in 2020 to avoid a vote on climate change. But that was ok, because they were republican and only democrats do bad things, right?

Is their action a criminal offense?
If not, then you can't arrest them.
If it is, lock them up.

This whole thing is just stupid anyhow.

Got to make it easy for people to exercise their right to vote!!!!!

You can't exercise your right to buy a gun without a thorough background check and several other hurdles.....

If I remember correctly I said they should return and do the job they were elected to do.
Vote no and make your argument.

They’re right about the part where the people want to see them all on a plane....where that plane goes is another story

Uh, elected officials are active representatives of their constituents. They are "activists" for the people who voted for them. Boy, people just don't understand representative democracy anymore.

I wondered how long it would be before a Lefty chimed in with yet another whataboutism.

I hope all these lawbreakers who flew to DC get arrested when they get back to Texas. I'd be willing to bet they try to sneak back in in ones and twos, rather than come back in as a group and risk getting arrested.

So some folks think limiting the right to vote legally is a good thing?

Who are these people?

Oh, that's right. It is those folk, again.

They like gerrymandering and stomping on voting rights of "certain" people. They long for the good ole' days of Jim crow and poll taxes.

Texas is already one of the worst turn out states, and most difficult to vote in.

So what do "they" do?

Make it harder to vote!

Did you run block against critics of those Republicans or were you in there pissing and whining about them alongside the morons critical of them?

Even if they get arrested, I doubt it stays on the record with a Democrat President in office.. He can just use his powers to wipe it from their record..

The President can only wipe out Federal charges. State charges have to be done by the Governor. Since it is the Governor who's calling for their arrest, I don't think it's going to happen.

Damn, that’s an ugly bunch. With apparently ugly morals. If the plane went down the loss would be minimal.

Same. F the partisan BS and get to work. The difference is in Oregon the vote could still go through so it was really not hurting anything. If you are elected you go to work and do what you should. The governor also sent police for them.

www.vox.com...

This is a nice hit piece on white people holding up democracy. The difference is they cam back.
