Left in Texas: Anti-Vaxxers & Black Helicopters

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I know I’m starting to sound redundant when I say it has been another crazy week in Texas politics…buuuuut, well, it has.

In many ways it was just a doubling down of last weeks incidents. Molly White basically went on a defense of her comments and views on Muslims and Kory Watkins made even less veiled threats against legislators. Is this the new norm? It seems after several campaign cycles of using fear to stir up the crazy, the chickens are finally coming home to roost at the Capitol, and they have guns. Oh well, at least some members have “panic buttons.”

We also spend a bit of time talking about Anti-vaxxers and the damage they’ve done, before giving the obligatory Rick Perry update. It actually not a bad segway given that Perry was behind vaccinations before they were cool. Unfortunately for him, it was also way before any parents wanted to talk to their kids about HPV.
