Texas Republican blames ‘African Americans who have not been vaccinated’ for state’s COVID crisis


Raw Story: Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacked Black Texans to deflect from criticism of GOP attacks on public health measures.

“Well, Laura,” Patrick said to Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, “The COVID is spreading, particularly — most of the numbers are with the unvaccinated.”

“And the Democrats like to blame Republicans on that, well, the biggest group in most states are African Americans who have not been vaccinated. Last time I checked, more than 90% of them vote for Democrats in their major cities and major counties,” he said, hinting at why Texas Republicans are pursuing voter suppression bills.

He argued it was “up to the Democrats” despite the state of Texas being controlled by Republicans.

  1. It was an informative clip of Ingraham’s brother detailing his fathers Nazi leanings and Laura’s continuation of that. It is now clear, (more clear) that our education department is not qualified to mandate the attendance of children under penalty of jail for the parents.
    Civics, race relations, and agriculture are non-existent. Individual finance management, history, and geopolitics all heavily tainted with domination theory. Ingraham wears the cross as a permission slip to provide a pathway to white christian supremacy. It might as well be a swastika at this point. FFRF had a very good segment regarding church taxes the other day.
