Texas: We enforce only the laws we like!
In addition to losing their minds over the Jade Helm military exercise, patriotic Texans are thumbing their collective noses at the US Constitution:
(Wait. Don't we read almost daily from the patriotic right wing noise machines that it's the libtards and their libtard president who disrespect the law?)
Texas has refused to issue birth certificates to children born in America to undocumented immigrants over the last year, The Texas Observer reports, and several of parents have taken the state to court.
“I’ve never seen such a large number of women with this problem,” said a Texas RioGrande Legal Aide lawyer. “They are locking out a huge chunk of the undocumented immigrant community.”
Despite Texas law allowing parents to use foreign IDs for identification, hospitals run by the Texas Department of State Health Services have told parents that their foreign IDs—or passports without current U.S. visas—are no longer acceptable.
Here's another bit of Texas numbskullery. Is this what the right wing noise machine calls "liberal indoctrination?" Oh, wait:
New history books in Texas downplay slavery's role in Civil War, omit KKK and Jim Crow laws
Texas: We're going to teach only the history that we think happened, not what actually happened. So we'll keep our children dumb little conbots who learn fantasies, not facts.
Also, Evolution is a hoaxy lie. The Earth is only 6,000 years old. It's in the Bible! And everyone in the world knows we get our science facts and education from the Bible!
Bill Nye: Debate Over Evolution In Texas Schools Is Jeopardizing Our Future
So to recap:
Texas is breaking the law by not registering children who are born in this country;
Texas is rewriting history books to reflect its skewed and inaccurate ideas about the Jim Crow era and the KKK;
Texas tried to suppress the teaching of Evolution in public schools;
Texas thinks President Obama is invading the state to round up and imprison patriotic Americans!
Go to any of the right wing blogs or news sites and read their wailing and gnashing of teeth about how this country is finished, kaput, over because of what the blah in the White House has done to it.
Meanwhile, in conservative controlled Texas?
Move along, nothing to see there.
