If you go by retweets, the sniveling, cowardly Texas Democrats who scampered out of state for DC shuttled on private jets are heroes.
Heroes! Brave! Yes, my friends, they’re sacrificing so much!
Without a single thought of how it would play to people forced to wear masks on planes, these dopes even tweeted out pictures of themselves sitting maskless aboard private planes on their way to DC. But hey, they got lots of retweets, so it’s totally a win, y’all!
Of course Twitter isn’t real life and counting retweets is a terrible way to govern.
Twitter is overwhelmingly Democrat; Texas is not.
A Pew Research survey on Twitter use showed that 10% of users produce a staggering 92% of all tweets. And 69% of those users are Democrats. In other words, Twitter is bluer than almost every deep blue Congressional district in the country.
These Texas Democrats see the loads of retweets for their silly stunt and actually think that means they’re winning. In the real world, state politicians abandoning their job to flee to DC on private jets looks really, really bad. And these idiots don’t even realize it.
In the real world an overwhelming majority of Americans support voter integrity laws.
In the real world, these prats look like grandstanding shitpickles eager for campaign cash and retweets.
I mean how out of touch with your own state would you have to be to think that posting selfies on Twitter of you sitting on a private jet (paid for by heaven knows who) on your way to Washington DC would play well in Texas?
But they’re not trying to appeal to the people in their state. That’s what you have to understand. They’re trying to appeal to the media and the bluest denizens of Twitter.
This is a problem almost every Democrat politician has right now. They all mold and shape their agenda based on the screeching demands from the most skewed demographic imaginable. They think that getting retweets and likes on Twitter is more important than actually doing the job they were elected to do.
Remember after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was first sworn in as a Congresswoman? The first task she was given was to offer lessons in using Twitter to her fellow Democrat colleagues.
In related news, in April of this year, AOC was named the least effective member of Congress by the Center for Effective Lawmaking.
But hey, at least she’s the Queen on Twitter, am I right?!
These Texas Democrats will no doubt enjoy their days in the spotlight as the Heroes of the Election Integrity Resistance. They’ll get oodles of fawning news coverage, tons of retweets on Twitter and lots of campaign cash from the same deeply gullible people who sent money to the Lincoln Project and Stacey Abrams.
But in the end, if they ever return home, it won’t be to a hero’s welcome.
They will sway no Texas voters to their side. But they might succeed in swaying some Texas Democrats to the Republicans’ side.
But at least they got those sweet, sweet retweets.
