1. It will never happen

 

although I understand the impulse to do anything at all. Texas is led by bigots and a majority of Texans are bigots still.

Seriously there are a lot of good people in Texas.

But they are outnumbered by morons and haters.

Source: Native Texan shitkicker born and raised who fled to a life in big east coast cities, that's me. I go back once every couple of years to check and it's if anything worse than it was in the 60s and 70s.

Dan Patrick is a known bigot. If I believed in any of his fantasy faith I would pray he rots in a nasty version of hell.

6. Sign it anyway.

 

Just to feel good about yourself.

8. Actually no

 

I don't sign most petitions and certainly not to feel good. I think the petition has become a devalued instrument in the Internet era and they are too often used to take advantage of outrage to harvest email addresses or open their signatories to attacks. Just a personal stance of mine given that there is a less than zero chance such a petition will have any effect on removing Patrick from office and thus *only*!serves to make signers feel good.

When was the last online petition that effected any change?

Texas is a lost cause.

9. When was the last time not doing shit accomplished anything?

 

You know you can get an email that you never use for stuff like this.

But, of course, you can't be bothered.

2. Signed with incredible sadness that people have elected these hate-mongers.

No to theocracy and no to Dan Patrick's hate.

3. Done and Done. This petition was created by a former student of mine

Jerritt Lyday or "JP" is a liberal Christian. I am friends with his mother and worked with her as well for many years in education. Proud of JP, and proud to support this effort.

4. Good God.

What's especially precious is the gay-hating Xtian Fundamentalists trying to pretend there is more than a few inches of philosophical difference between them and the Islamic ones.

10. The tweet has been saved for posterity by many angry people.

 

I hope there are enough decent people in Texas to get this monster removed from office.

11. I understood that his account automatically sends

I understood that his account automatically sends a daily biblical quote. Not that I'm defending him...can't stand that slug.

12. They are lying their asses off

 

after being surprised by the level of outrage. Make no mistake, Dan Patrick is a vile, despicable human being.
