Congrats, Rep. Christian!

We were perusing through the far-right Texas Eagle Forum’s website the other day and found this: The Eagle Forum’s legislative scorecard for the 82nd Legislature that concluded mid-summer.

Ranking as the most conservative on the Eagle Forum’s list, and the only legislator — in the House or Senate — to receive a 100 percent rating was Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center. It means Rep. Christian voted in lockstep with the Eagles Forum’s issues on everything, including the abortion sonogram bill, the attempt to replace Speaker Joe Straus with a so-called “real conservative,” the fight against the Sharia Law boogeyman, defunding Planned Parenthood and sending the message to schoolchildren that, hey, bullying is just a rite of passage.

Given the Eagle Forum’s extreme politics, it also means the far-right group considers Rep. Christian the fringe of the fringe. Heck, even far-right darlings state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, and state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, weren’t even able to crack 90 percent.

So in honor of Rep. Christian, let’s relive some of his greatest hits, caught on video, from the past legislative session that helped earn him that 100 percent. Enjoy.

Here’s Rep. Christian letting the truth slip about the real reason behind the drive to defund Planned Parenthood:


Here’s Rep. Christian arguing that state colleges and universities should be required to teach a course on “western civilization.” Yeah, we still don’t know what he meant:


And the best is saved for last. Here Rep. Christian argues in favor of creating “Student Centers for Family and Traditional Values” on state college and university campuses:

  1. As a non-Texan outsider, I am curious if any of this representative’s proposals were passed in the legislative session. It sounds as if Rep. Christian epitomizes the “loose canon on the deck”..

  2. Yes, but I am going to compare teaching classes at the gender and sexuality to terrorism and murder. Brilliant, Mr. Christian. And sir, I attend a community college that started out accepting 70% of their funding from the state, 40 years ago, and now only receive 30% from state funding. There are over 11,000 students at this university, so I really wonder just how much of his taxpaying dollars is going to this teaching of “alternative sexual practice”. Here is a thought, if you do not like the class or agree with it, don’t sign up for it. Just a thought!

  3. And actually it is maddening to me that our state is broke ($29 billion in the hole) but we are spending, no wasting our tax dollars paying salaries for these people to bring up amendments like these when there are so many, many, many other important issues facing us.

  4. My friends in Texas would be pleased to know that Rick Perry got slammed badly on the editorial pages of my local newspaper today. I live a long distance from Texas. He and others of his ilk were portrayed as provincial fools who would do anything and say anything to get elected. Rick Perry did this in Texas. Rick Perry said this in Texas. Rick Perry did not really mean it. He was just doing it to influence the fools who live in Texas so they would vote for him

    Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is Dwight D. Eisenhower anywhere tonight and is there still a chance that he could save the Republican Party?

  5. I think it was Molly Ivins who said someting like, “if the Texas legislature weren’t half idiods, they would not be a representative body.”

  6. Evidently that Rep Christian hasn’t been to school in a while — every course in the humanities and liberal arts, social sciences, even biological sciences will teach “heterosexuality” in some form or another — every one of them. It’s part of every _assumption_ in all our discussions. Rep Christian is so afraid of others not as pretty as him that he can’t see the dominance of heterosexuality and Western Civ in everything taught in every grade.
