Like many a denizen of a MAGA Red Trump State, I’ve been apprehensive about the hordes of Californicators, Noo Yokkers and similar refugees from their respective hellholes pouring into Texas. It seems, however, that my fears (and that of others of my ilk) of Bluestaters turning our state purple if not Blue may be a little too pessimistic. Here are some numbers:
The results of the 2020 census are in, and the Democrats are looking very nervous. It turns out that red states are growing and blue states are shrinking. Red States are gaining three congressional seats while blue states are losing three. In fact, California will lose a seat for the first time ever. Legislative and Electoral College power is shifting in favor of the Republicans.
But the propaganda ministry is trying to convince us that this is all good news for the crime family that calls itself the Democrats. The narrative is that liberals are moving from blue states to red states and will eventually turn them blue. But as we’ve learned, if the talking heads are talking, they’re most likely lying. So, let’s examine what they’re saying.
He looks at his (new) home state of Idaho:
Between 2013 and 2019, the percentage of voters who registered as Republican went from 32.4% to 50.8%. Democrats added 52,300 voters to their rolls, but Republicans added a whopping 200,000 to theirs! Idahoans are becoming more engaged in politics, and their political proclivity is clearly conservative.
The reality is that conservative states are becoming more conservative, and they are gaining political clout at the same time. The people moving about the country aren’t missionaries going forth to spread socialism, any more than those fleeing Cuba in the last century were trying to bring communism to Florida. They’re escaping the blue states in search of the America of their youth.
To paraphrase the title of this post: I sure damn hope it’s true, and all this isn’t wishful thinking.
From another American Thinker article, here’s what happened in Texas recently:
Back on Election Day 2020, the Democrats were convinced that it was their year. After all, didn’t Beto O’Rourke break the ice when he got 48% against Senator Cruz? On the Friday before the election, a poll had Biden up and Senator John Cornyn in a tie. As you know, President Trump carried Texas, and Senator Cornyn had a landslide re-election. Wonder if anyone asked for a refund from that pollster?
It was going to be their year until they counted the votes. Then suddenly it was good old Red Texas all over again. The Democrats went 0-10 in congressional districts despite putting lots of resources and TV ads into tying every candidate to President Trump. In the end, the TV ads tying Democrats to “defund the police” turned out to be more persuasive.
First, the Democrats are finding out that a growing Hispanic population does not necessarily mean more Democrats elected. President Trump did well in South Texas in large part because Hispanics like a strong economy and do not believe that the border should be open. After all, most of those Hispanics were born here or respected the law to come in. They don’t understand why other people cannot do the same thing.
Second, the Democrats have a San Francisco message that does not play well in Texas. From “abortion on demand” to gun control, the Democrat message is not turning on voters. The abortion issue (the new heartbeat law) will be a problem for Democrats with Hispanic women. As a Hispanic lady said to me: “How can you abort a heart beating?” My guess is that most Hispanic women agree with that.
So what do you do when your voters don’t turn out or your jingle doesn’t get clicks? You blame the other side for “suppressing” the vote.
I’m not so sure that the Socialists are going to do that well with their precious Black voters, either. At least, if this guy is at all representative. (Loud, epic video)
And if you don’t break out in giggles like a ticklish schoolgirl, I don’t wanna talk to you no more.
