Anti-Straus Activist Blames Minorities and ‘Maggots’ for Obama Victory and Calls for Texas to Secede

Peter Morrison, the race-obsessed right-wing activist who helped lead unsuccessful efforts to oust Republican Joe Straus as speaker of the Texas House in 2011, is taking yesterday’s election victory by President Obama very poorly, to say the least.

Morrison, who writes a periodic e-newsletter (The Peter Morrison Report) for like-minded activists, has in the past accused the president of “hatred and contempt for white people, traditional families, small business owners, evangelical Christians, conservatives” — folks Morrison calls the “normal people.” In his e-newsletter today, Morrison expressed his deep frustration that Romney lost on Tuesday even though the former Massachusetts governor “was probably the smartest person to run for President since the Founders.” Then he blames Romney’s loss on — surprise! — minorities: “(M)any members of minority groups are simply racist against the party that most white people happen to vote for.”

Morrison also insists that conservatives must fight to “delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity.” But he sees an inevitable future in which “the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic.”

So, he says, Texas should secede from the Union:

“Texas was once its own country, and many Texans already think in nationalist terms about their state. We need to do everything possible to encourage a long-term shift in thinking on this issue. Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years.”

Meanwhile, Morrison says, Texans should work to oust Speaker Straus and replace him with a “true conservative.” “Start calling your state representatives now to let them know that we will remember how they vote in 2014,” he writes.

Maybe Morrison’s fellow travelers could also ask their lawmakers about secession and what Texas could do about the minorities and “maggots” who would still be living in the new Lone Star Republic.

  1. Texas basically went 60-40 for many races in the election. While that is a significant difference, it’s a lot more purple than people seem to credit, and should ensure that this type of extremism doesn’t go anywhere.

  2. Perhaps Texas could get some of the “socialists” into separate states from the “ordinary people” by finally exercising its option from the annexation treaty, and splitting into five separate states. It would have the further additional upside of giving Texans another eight senators… the bad news being, several of those might now be for blue states.

  3. Oh how I love Texas and Texans. I feel so sorry for the mentally unbalanced ones who still do not know that when Texas decided to seceded from the Union in 1861, they LOST the capability to split into five states. When they were readmitted in 1865, slavery had already been outlawed by the 13th Amendment.

    Texas is NOT able to secede from the Union either. The only people who still think that have to wear bandages on their knuckles to prevent injury to them when they drag on the pavement.

    The Republican party needs to understand that the people who rejected their platform of extremism and hatred are AMERICANS, not Hispanics, blacks, Asians…they are AMERICANS and voted with other AMERICANS to tell the Republicans that the direction in which they wanted to move the country was invalid and totally REJECTED.

    The GOP is dead. Long live our Democratic Republic!

  4. I would be okay with Texas splitting into 5 states as long as Travis County was permitted to be one of those states, and was free to remain a U.S. State. Not having to be attached to some of the morons who spout this crap would suit me fine.

  5. I am a black man in Texas and I cant get my family out of here fast enough…..So much isolation intolerance and racism since Obama took office…..

    1. Jason, I’m a native Texan and I am SO sorry you feel that way!! Our country has unfortunately become the DIVIDED States of America instead of the UNITED states of America. I don’t ever remember seeing so much divisiveness in our country and that was before President Obama was elected the first time. I’m an Obama supporter and it hurts me that Americans don’t respect the office of the presidency anymore. We have the either very far right or the very far left. What happened to the middle (purple) part of our country? We are ALL Americans!

    2. Jason, I am an old (66) white guy that grew up in the segregated South, and proudly voted for Obama twice. I too, am deeply disappointed and irritated by the venom and bile from so many. That said, historical change is a long process, requiring steps forward and backward. Reconsider. In spite of the screaming, things are much better than when I was a youth.

      1. Jason, sorry for how you are feeling. I must tell you that as a 52 y.o. white female and 7th generation Texan I feel much the same way but perhaps for different reasons. I am surrounded by so many intolerant types on the right that I am almost afraid to let anyone know that I am a Democrat. They start in on me as if I am some kind of menace in society. This is not the Texas that I grew up in. We are being held hostage to some kind of movement that started during the Reagan years. Then the American Taliban disguised as the religious right seemed to inflame so many things particularly social issues. I have two ancestors names etched into a plaque at the Alamo. We have stories in the family of our ancestors coming here from the east in their covered wagons suffering much hardship. Through the ages the message that has survived has been,” I may not agree with you but I will fight for you to have the right to think that way”. That is a great philosophy but as I have learned, it only works when we respect each other. That is what is missing today. I implore you and others that may be reading this to stay and help in the struggle we have to return Texas to the great state that it should be. A state that embraces diversity and tolerance and says no to the ignorance and hatred that we see around us. I am raising my daughter to know the difference and to honor our ancestors by being a “Real Texan” verses these posers that claim to be. I need all the help I can get to return this state to my beloved Texas. Thank you.– DK

  6. If Morrison pays for my family, and of course, myself, to leave Texas–I’m ready to relocate to Vermont!

    1. Beverly,

      Greetings from Vermont! Just finished a three-hour walk around the nearby river and wooded areas. It’s beautiful up here. We’d love to have you and yours up our way! And fwiw, there are even a handful of minorities up here (sez someone who is not white himself).

  7. As one of the ” maggots” to which Rep. Morrison so eloquently refers, I would appreciate the opportunity to personally respond to his comments and tell him where I think he and his ilk might “secede”. TFN, do you happen to have an email address or other contact info? Thanks!

    1. This man Peter makes me want to move away from Texas..He is an embarrassment to the good people of Texas…Men have died fighting for our right to vote and after we vote win or lose we back the winner..What a cry baby and sore loser..If he don’t like the usa then he should move some place else…I will pay for the move.

  8. To Jason – pack your family and run! Unfortunately I don’t know where to suggest you go. I am black and live in Hawaii. I thought I was safe here but every racist person here takes delight in making me aware of how they feel.
