Beto Went Deep Into Klan Country, And Hundreds Came Out In Support

Paris, Texas has long held the reputation of being a safe haven for the Klan and white supremacy. This weekend, Beto showed us all how much Texas is changing.

6. 250 people came out to hear Beto speak. Some of those people were protesters.

That's not a lot of change. I know Paris, Texas. Texas is not even close to changing.

8. Beto has done a lot for the change to be possible

whether he wins or not, it is so important to have strong dem candidates running in all red areas. Same with Stacey Abrams, it may tale a few election cycles for real change to occur but we donít bother, no change would even be possible.

11. Opposed to the confederate statue protests last year when only 10 people showed up?

250 people in Lamar County is a good sign.

14. More than 10. I was there.

There were about 60 of us, in spite of a heavily armed and brandishing law enforcement presence intermingled with militia types across the street. I just happened to be passing through and dropped in for a few hours.

7. Kick.

Repukes really can't win in the long term if they don't cheat. We've got to be on our game in the interim in terms of gerrymandering and election rigging.

9. Someone needs to hammer this home at the MSM outlets. They still reference the Disney/Alamo Texas

history and culture. Not what my dad grew up with in Giddings, Dime Box, Ledbetter and Caldwell.

They have forgotten Anne Richard's Texas, or the one which elected LBJ.

10. I never lived in any of the four towns where your father lived,

but I'm familiar with all four of them. Most of the people work blue collar jobs and a few of them may stop in at a bar in town to pick up some food after work. There are a few more food options in Giddings and Caldwell since they are larger towns than Dime Box and Ledbetter.

The mainstream media needs to stop fantasizing/romanticizing about events from more than a century ago.

12. Dad grew up during the Depression and came of age in WWII. He returned after the war

and agreed with the vision of a better Texas that LBJ and others were trying to push forward. The simplistic version of today's Texas the MSM likes is far out of date if not completely made up. Likewise Abbott's RW Christian nationalist version (and W's before him) ignores genuine Texas history both bad and good.

As such the MSM condemns with a very broad brush the entirety of Texas to Abbott's dystopian nightmare while ignoring Democratic history in the state and much common ground between the traditional communities of faith there.
