Texas Women Out in Force Today in Austin (and more on David Dewhurst foolishness)

1 July 2013 at 2:34:18 PM

Sea of Orange for Stand with Texas Women.

On David Dewhurst. The other day he called the TEXANS who protested in the Capital Gallery an ugly mob. One of his cohorts called these TEXANS "terrorists". Hah, guess he doesn't believe in democracy, would prefer that all those women just sit down and shut up.

In his speech, Dewhurst ripped the crowds opposing a vote as driven by "hatred" and "mob rule."

Another crazy thing Dewhurst said over the weekend is that it was the MEDIA that was inciting riots. Ooops. Backed down from that oinker.

Dewhurst also backed down from comments published Friday on the conservative website Hot Air, in which he said he'd heard reporters in the Capitol were inciting protesters. He told Hot Air he would "take action" against any reporters who were driving the crowd.

On Saturday, he said he respected reporters and that "the case is closed."

Dewhurt's cynical attempts at damage control

His email also attacks the activists and lawmakers who helped stop the passage of that legislation last Tuesday, with Dewhurst complaining about an “outrageous effort to undermine the democratic process in the Texas capitol.”

We’re sorry, but what credibility does the lieutenant governor have to talk about the “democratic process”? He and other Senate Republicans flagrantly ignored their own rules and precedent in trying to ram through passage of their extreme and divisive legislation last Tuesday. In fact, even Republican state Rep. David Simpson — one of the state’s most conservative legislators – tweeted late that night that the Senate had “run roughshod over the rules.”

Then on Friday, in an interview with a right-wing website, Dewhurst suggested that news reporters on Tuesday night had been “trying to inflame the crowd, incite them in the direction of a riot,” and he threatened to “take action” against them. “We take a democratic policy seriously,” he cynically told his questioner.

This morning his spokesman backed away from those reckless comments, explaining that a review of video from Tuesday night showed no such “incitement” from reporters. Of course it didn’t.

As Cecile Richards said.

Dewhurst called us an unruly mob. The rest of us call that democracy
