As we reported earlier, the Texas Democrats have fled the state and flown to Washington, D.C. to prevent a vote on the election security bill, denying Republicans a quorum.
Now, this is a silly move which, as my colleague Bonchie noted earlier, they’re attempting a gambit they can’t ultimately win. It may be stopping a quorum on the election bill but it’s also blocking all the things that Democrats would want to push, which wouldn’t go over well with their constituents. They’re also playing this game in a state that knows better, that knows this bill isn’t anything like they want to paint it, so it’s going to come back to bite the Democrats as a group with independent voters as well.
But if you listen to what Kamala Harris and the Texas legislators are saying you would think that they were storming the beaches of Normandy. They think they’re heroes for perpetuating a vicious falsehood — that this bill in any way inhibits people’s right to vote.
Harris claimed that Democrats were “showing extraordinary courage and commitment.”

She’s actually comparing them to real civil rights activists? And the people who fought and died for that right? That’s just shameful and insulting to those people. Not one person is being denied the right to vote, and to suggest that’s what’s going on here is woefully dishonest. And how are these runaway babies standing for “expressing their voice through their vote” when they are literally not doing their job
