Barton Endorses Secessionist for Texas AG

David Barton has officially endorsed Barry Smitherman, current chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission, to be the next attorney general of that state. Smitherman, among many other extremist views, is an advocate of secession. He’s also defended a white supremacist group founded by a neo-Nazi and objected to them being labeled a hate group. There simply is no such thing as a fringe in conservatism anymore. There is no limit to how loathsome, racist or extremist you can be and still be welcomed as part of the Republican coalition.

    In some fairness, AFAIK, they don’t yet consider Don Black as part of the Rethuglican coalition but give them time.

    Personally, I would be fine with Texas seceding, as soon as they pay off their part of the national debt.

    Smitherman believes that aborted fetuses would have voted Republican; the problem with Texas is that Texas women aren’t having enough babies (he’s doing his part, he has four children); there’s no such thing as Climate Change because Austin hasn’t had a bad storm in a couple of years. Sounds like the ideal person for Barton.

    No upper limit, but you can certainly be declared a RINO if you’re not loathsome, racist, or extremist enough.

    Couldn’t we just sell the state?

    If it ends up that the only thing preventing Texas from leaving is their share of the national debt, I’d let ‘em go. Face it, if I loan somebody $50 and never see them again, part of me figures it was worth it.

    Only a matter of time before someone gaffes with a statement about “legitimate lynchings”?

    “If it’s a legitimate lynching, minorities have ways to try to shut the whole thing down…”

    Texas actually pays more to the Feds than they receive. Shocking, I know! Nevertheless, I’d forgo that surplus if they have their heart set on leaving. Perhaps a trial separation is in order.
