TX GOP goes scorched earth against powerful LGBTQ special interests, reserves right to secession with new platform

The Texas GOP has had it with the woke agenda on the left, proudly declaring in their convention platform a number of conservative stances including the premise that President Biden did not win the election.

Thousands of Lone Star Republican delegates rebelliously approved revisions to the party’s 40-page platform. Among them is the repeal of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, abolishing abortion, secession from the United States, and the assertion that Biden is an illegitimate president due to voter fraud. The platform reportedly calls homosexuality “abnormal.”

More than 5,100 delegates and alternates voted on the platform, according to the New York Post.

“Homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice,” the platform asserts. “We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin.”

“The section also opposes the use of public funds for homosexuality, transgender or diversity, and equity inclusion centers as well as for gender-affirming care — while supporting controversial counseling methods intended to ‘convert’ members of the LGBTQ community,” The Hill reported, adding “Texas does not have a law banning conversion therapy.”

“The Fort Worth chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national Republican LGBTQ organization, was excluded from the event after they were not allowed to set up a booth,” Axios reporter Ivana Saric noted.

“We believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution,” the Texas Republicans said in their platform. “We reject the certified results of the 2020 presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States.”

The skewed reporting is coming from a frenzied media claiming that the GOP in Texas is moving further to the right. They also permeate fear over former President Trump running in 2024.

The platform is calling for a massive GOP voter turnout in the midterm and presidential elections to “overwhelm any possible fraud.”

“We urge that the Voting Rights Act of 1965, codified 1402 and updated in 1973, be repealed and not reauthorized,” the platform states. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 is a civil rights-era bill that ostensibly banned racial discrimination in elections by prohibiting any voting rules that “results in the denial or abridgment of the right of any citizen to vote on account of race or color.”

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), who joined hands with Democrats on gun control, was vigorously booed when he took the stage at the convention. He was also rebuked in a resolution for what many Texans view as an attack on Second Amendment rights.

“Whereas those under 21 are most likely to be victims of violent crime and thus most likely to need to defend themselves. Whereas ‘red flag laws’ violate one’s right to due process and are a pre-crime punishment of people not adjudicated guilty,” the platform asserted.

“Whereas waiting periods on gun purchases harm those who need to acquire the means of self-defense in emergencies such as riots. Whereas all gun control is a violation of the Second Amendment and our God-given rights. We reject the so-called ‘bipartisan gun agreement,’ and we rebuke Senators John Cornyn (R-Texas), Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina), Roy Blunt (R-Missouri), Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania),” it added.

Texas conservatives are also reserving the right of secession if they deem it necessary amid stirrings of civil unrest.

“Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto,” the platform states.

“We can’t compromise with Democrats who have a different and incompatible vision for our future,” Matt Rinaldi, who is the state GOP chairman, said, according to The Texas Newsroom. “We need to be a bold and unapologetic conservative party, ready to go on offense and win the fight for our country.”
