Conservatives love to mock liberals as sensitive “snowflakes” but the moment they don’t get their way right-wingers are the first people to fall to hysterical pieces. The defeat of their idiotic cult leader Trump has left Republicans reeling, with some of them apparently so incensed by the fact that we’ll now have stable, competent governance that they’re floating the topic of secession. Apparently, these cretins failed to pay attention in history class when the teacher explained what happened the last time a confederation of racists tried to peel off and start their own country.
Infamous race-baiter and conservative thought leader Rush Limbaugh has discussed the idea of conservatives seceding from the union and the treasonous suggestion also seems to have taken root in some corners of the internet and even in a few pockets within the official GOP. Now, Republican Kyle Biederman, a member of the Texas House of Representatives, has officially moved forward with the asinine and ill-fated suggestion.
Biederman, who is infamous for having dressed up in a costume as the SNL character “Gay Hitler”, filed a bill on Tuesday insisting that Texas secede from the United States. As The Daily Beast points out, this is the first time in almost 100 years that such a thing has been done. Entitled “The Texas Independence Referendum Act,” the bill would allow Texans to cast a vote this November as to whether or not their state should pull away to form its own “independent republic.” The legislation suggests 2026 as the target year for the secession.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Biederman was also one of the MAGA lunatics who marched on the Capitol in what would eventually snowball into all-out insurrection against the legitimately elected government. While he has claimed that he participated “peacefully,” the fact that he is now forwarding legislation such as this shows that disdain for American democracy is deeply ingrained in him.
If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be now: these MAGA Republicans, the people who love to make a big show of waving the flag and ranting about patriotism, are some of the most deeply unpatriotic people in this country. They don’t believe in the United States of America, they believe in forcing their reactionary, hateful, ignorant views on the rest of the world no matter the cost. To them democracy isn’t something to be protected and cultivated, it’s an obstacle.
Today, I filed HB 1359, the Texas Independence Referendum Act. For decades, the promises of America & our individual liberties have been eroding. Now is the time for the People of Texas to have the right to decide their own future. #LetTexansVote #Texit https://t.co/VTKosQKGBl pic.twitter.com/X2gDIDjYrv
