Texas District 137 State Rep. Gene Wu said something on the mark a few days ago.
He said the biggest threat to his community is the Republican Party & as you see above lists reasons why.
I would add to his list law enforcement unions that refuse to step away from support of election-deniers and traitors & any law enforcement unit in Texas that follows unlawful orders from Greg Abbott to subvert federal power.
We must expand our conception of public safety to include democracy and following the United States Constitution. It is good to see an elected official clear about how it is the political right at the lead of any accurate list of public threats.
There is more Rep. Wu could do to fight for freedom and it is up to each of us rather than elected officials to lead the fight. Very few elected officials are fully reliable allies. At the same time, it is important we understand who and what we are facing & the danger they represent for all of us. Rep. Wu's comments help further that goal.
The Houston Democracy Project works daily to inspire, organize and strengthen pro-democracy coalitions in Houston and Harris County. The Project will continue through 2024 at the least.
