◼ Texas Dem Says GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Needs Permission To Campaign In Hispanic Areas [Read] - Right Wing News
◼ Texas politicians are recoiling after a prominent Lubbock Democrat accused Republican candidate for governor Greg Abbott of “piñata politics” in a bigoted tirade and allegedly disparaged Abbott’s Latina wife. - Andrew Johnson/National Review
...(Lubbock city councilman Victor) Hernandez, who chairs the local chapter Tejano Democrats, is furious about Abbott’s appeal to Hispanic voters in his city. Even though Abbott was met by a crowd of supporters at Jimenez Bakery and Restaurant last week, Hernandez branded the stop as “offensive” to Hispanics and “beyond any sense of decency.”
He criticized Abbott and Republican candidates for not clearing their visit with local Hispanic groups.
...The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal said Hernandez couldn’t recall specific examples of Wendy Davis showing the same deference to such groups. But he has doubled down on his fiery denunciation of the Republican candidate, and now he’s in hot water over his alleged use of the word “prop” to describe Cecilia Abbott, Greg Abbott’s Hispanic wife of 33 years.
In a post about the incident, PJ Media’s Bryan Preston reports that Hernandez labeled Cecilia Abbott “a prop” in her husband’s efforts to appeal to Hispanics. Abbott tweeted that Hernandez’s comments were “deeply offensive.”

Tolerance in a two-way street. That little phrase is bandied about all the time by the fanatical Left whenever they feel like condemning a conservative for perceived intolerance. The Left frequently claims the mantle of tolerance, making themselves into modern deities. It is their alleged willingness to love all people, no matter their beliefs, that makes them such wonderful, compassionate people. Well, that’s their tag line, at least. The truth—as is often the case—is far from what the Left would have you believe. Just as was recently said by Chris Christie, the Democrats are the Party of intolerance, not the Republicans.
A perfect example illustrating my argument, you say? Of course! According to Fox News:
“Rutgers University professors and students are crying foul over the school’s decision to invite former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to speak at this year’s commencement ceremony.
