The actions of the Republican Party of Texas, under the leadership of James Dickey, are just nuts. One day after James Dickey sends out an email calling for unity, I find out that he has rejected a check for $1,400 from the Log Cabin Republicans to place an ad in the program for the upcoming convention in San Antonio. Here is the ad he rejected:
Damn. That is pretty offensive, isn’t it?
This is so ridiculous. The sad part is that there are some members of the LCR that have Stockholm Syndrome and sing James Dickey’s praises because he talked to them. Or something like that.
Guys and gals, that’s BS. Sometimes you gotta break a window. Or three. If you are going to vote for the guy, demand that he support you. Sheesh.
Michael Baker is an amazing man. Our governor likes to talk about his backbone of steel, well, let me tell you, he ain’t got nothing on Michael. Here is his email to me when I inquired about this:
The Texas GOP has turned down our ad for the program advertising Texas LCR two events that we are having at the convention. The Texas Republican Party of Texas states that the same rules for the booth applies to the add in the program. Keep in mind that we were the only organization declined a booth this year.
We will be making history this year by having a room in the convention hall for delegates and elected officials to come meet at greet our members. We heard from a few at the last SREC meeting that they do not know where we stand on the party platform. This will be an opportunity to find out how we can agree on 90% of the issues.
Attached is a copy of the ad. We would appreciate everyone’s help in getting the word out about our two events. Log Cabin Republicans work harder than anyone to unite the Texas GOP. We will be present as the life of the party!!
Log Cabin Republicans of Texas, Chairman
If you are going to the convention, why not stop by and meet your fellow Republicans that are members of the LCR? I promise, they are just ordinary folks that care about the same things that you do. Promise!
