Texas Senate Bill Drops Teaching Requirement That Ku Klux Klan Is 'Morally Wrong'

The Texas Senate has passed a bill to eliminate a requirement that public schools teach that the Ku Klux Klan is “morally wrong.”

That same bill dropped studying Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech as a curriculum requirement

Don't Mess With Texas Democrats

Texas Democrats are once again making history. Right now, Texas Democratic lawmakers are walking out to break quorum in defense of voting rights in Texas and block further consideration of anti-voter bills HB 3 and SB 1 — a core subject of an irregular special session called by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

After a 24 hour hearing, Republicans voted voter suppression out of committee along party lines.

It was awful, I watched most of it all day and was up late last night. I’ll have a follow up on Living Blue, probably tomorrow. (Today is my daughter’s birthday)

In the senate, they started hearing testimony around 1pm, there were two bus loads of people who came from Senator Miles’ District (which is predominately Black), but their bus was supposed to leave at 5ish. Senator Miles asked for them to be heard before their bus had to go, and at 4:30 they called one Republican witnesses up and questioned him for 45 minutes, so that the two bus loads of Black people had to leave without being heard.

In the House Committee, even though the hearing started at 8am, they didn’t start taking public testimony until midnight.

Over 300 people signed up to speak to the Senate Committee, over 400 in the House Committee.

In both chambers, the speakers overwhelmingly were against the bill, many of them laying out how and why these bills would disenfranchise their ability to vote.

The republicans who did speak for the bill, were unhinged, lacked credibility, and several I recognized from previous scandals. For example, the ex-chair of Bexar County GOP showed up to speak in favor of voter suppression. But Cynthia Brehem was either removed or resigned last year from her post because of a series of racist social media posts.

The Austin GOP Committee guy (I forgot his exact title), was using extremely hateful rhetoric about Democrats and was called out in it by Senator Lucio, of all people.

Overnight, the majority of the republicans on the House Committee were not in the hearing. They left for hours and then trickled back in early this morning, so they didn’t even listen to most of the testimony.

The Senate Committee concluded around 2am and Senator Hughes tweeted about how many people were concerned with election integrity, which was a lie, since overwhelmingly those who spoke, spoke against it.

The House Committee conclude at about 8am, but not before they voted along part lines to advanced the bill to the House Floor.
