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

by Dan Quinn

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.
