To be fair, that's pretty standard Texas GOP "policy", this isn't the first time they've suggested secession.
I'm much more concerned about feeling the need to state "homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice". Kids pretty much anywhere on the gender-fluid spectrum are already being denied healthcare by the state of Texas. Talking about or acknowledging the existence of homosexuality is now pedo-grooming, and don't worry, we're working on our own "Don't say gay" law. I'm gonna say gay a LOT more, I think. Like out in public, loudly telling a story to a friend over dinner:
"So there was this gay guy, aaaaand.. he was gay. Lived with and married to another dude. The other guy, obviously, also gay, because he's married to the first guy, right? So these two gay guys... and, remember, both are gay... they don't really like women, and that's probably my #1 personality trait, is really liking to only GO FOR IT with women. So it's just, gay people, well, gay guys, it's gonna be tough to connect. But lesbians? I like to go to gay clubs, and pull up porn on my phone to share with the lesbians on their way out of the restroom. Works every time. But anyway. The gay guys, now, they're also at the club, which is gay, that is.... I mean to say, a gay club. I think, actually, they're not there looking for other guys (other gay guys, I mean), because they're married. In a gay marriage. At the bar, I walked up and asked them if they were gay, and they said 'yep'. I said 'Both of you, gay?', and they said 'yep'. They were gay, and they told me so. I ran off right after that, but I imagine both of the guys, the gay guys, they're still out there somewhere. Still gay. Probably gay married, still, too. Two gay dudes. So."
Off-topic (the five-minute attempt at comedy was super relevant) but some of this shit dropping in the J6 hearings is both almost beyond belief and entirely predictable. The best is Trump still routinely performing witness intimidation and defamation of the people testifying to Congress. Even better, at an evangelical political event last weekend, Trump said that he's considering pardons for anyone implicated in his J6 scheme once he's prez again. There's no way DoJ would suffer an acquittal on prosecutions of some of the higher-ups trying to overturn the election, but I doubt they get many sentencings done before January, 2025. And then, sorry, but anyone who thinks there is a world that Trump doesn't somehow get himself installed back into the White House is delusional. The "alarmism" is appropriate. He'll do anything. He's currently doing quite a bit of it. Meanwhile: "We, the select committee, opted not to subpoena the president or vice president because we have testimony from their close aides." Fuck that, ya shoulda hauled Trump-Pence in for a live hearing and made them plead the fifth under oath a hundred times. I'm sure the GOP-led congress makes all kinds of folks testify live on TV about Hunter's laptop or whatever in like 3 years.
Nazi punks, all of them. A huge portion of America. Nazi punks. Fuck off.
