Well, Texas Is Off The List

In conservative circles, the running joke seems to be Texas is the freest state in the union. While that may have been true in the good ol’ days, lately Texas has shown itself to be no better than any other semi-red state. Take this story, for example, where armed BLM thugs shut down a major highway while a police officer stood there and did nothing.

If people thought the aggression of Black Lives Matter couldn’t happen in a red state like Texas, they were wrong. A new, viral video shows BLM protesters blocking traffic and brandishing guns in an attempt to intimidate those trying to get through in Plano, TX.

At one point, you can see one of the protesters point a gun at the man who is yelling at them to move out of the road. But it’s what the police do that really has people talking.

They did this while a police officer was on the scene, and this douche cop did nothing.

Instead of trying to clear the street, the officer just stands there and only gets involved to deal with the driver. While it’s obvious he’s trying to keep things from escalating, that’s no excuse to stand idly by when unlawful behavior is clearly happening.

This piece of shite officer should be fired immediately. If you cannot, or will not, do your job, they you’re free to find some other line of work. F**king clown.

In response to this video, I’ve seen several BLM supporters claim that the protesters have a right to be armed. That’s true, but pretending anything in that video is legal shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how open carry (or any carry of a firearm) works. One of the things that a firearms instructor will drill into you is that you can not instigate a confrontation and then finish it with a gun while claiming self-defense. In this case, you can’t block traffic, entrap people, and then threaten them with a firearm.

The officer should have called for backup and immediately cleared the highway. Instead, he sat there and let these thugs shut down a major thoroughfare, emboldening these animals to do this again and again. I’m starting to think there are only a handful of truly free states left.

  1. MelP – Kyle still talks to his friends there , and that seems to be the consensus, too. He does something stupid, then does something “conservative” to make the rubes forget about the original screw up.

  2. Since there are no term limits for governor in Texas, they need to vote Abbott out! He is doing more harm than good at this point. I agree, Wyatt, the cop needs to find another line of work. He is lousy at law and order.

  3. There’s a comedian that’s planning to run for gov. I’ve watched him & read his posts on FB (yeah, I know) & he sounds pretty conservative. He keeps getting told that there’s no way he can win, but he says he doesn’t care what they think, he’s running (remind you of someone?)

  4. I don’t disagree about the cop, yet at the same time trying to considering today’s world, I’m sure it was heavily on his mind that he didn’t want to turn into the next Derek Chauvin. If it would have been me, I’d have called my Sergeant and lots of backup. Been there and done that. Everyone went to the hospital, me included. When cleared they all went to jail. We all went back to work. Soon after, the arrestees were released and charges dropped. That was in 1975. Nothing has changed. Basically, we’re doomed.

  5. Ronni – He didn’t have to go in all Dirty Harry, but for crying out loud, don’t just stand there, either.

    MelP – Like… President Trump? He has been out of office – by fraud – for four months and look how the country has declined.

    RG – This guy is exactly why big cities are collapsing. You do your job, without prejudice or malice. If these clowns are breaking the law, then they need to be arrested.

    1. President Trump was the 2nd one. The 1st one was “give ’em hell” Harry Truman (he said he would run as long as he got 1 vote: HIS)

  6. Maybe he was from Austin as that is a very liberal Texas town. Surprised that some good old boys didn’t clear the road with trucks and or tractors/combines.

  7. I would point out that the POS chief of Plano police marched with those fucking communists last summer. So I’m sure the orders are out. But still, that cowardly bastard is more interested in his pension than doing the right thing.

    Wyatt, I think I’m as anxious for your retirement as you are.

  8. Gary – Plano. It’s about a half hour from Dallas. Apparently they caught the blue city flu.

    CJB – So they’re more concerned with terrorists than law-abiding citizens. Good to know.

  9. The roadblock looks to be planned and executed well.

    They brought in at least one pickup to block the traffic. You can see the female open the door of it and berate the man as he is walking back to his car.

  11. RD – The sad part is no one decided to just shoot these people, and if they did, they would be the “criminals.”

    TXNick – It’s a shame, because Plano is really nice. Eventually the Democrat locusts will ruin every state in the union.

  12. I think there would be a different response once you get out of urban areas and small PD’s and SO’s are the responding agencies where there is certainly a lot less political correct pressure on LE.

  13. JimBob – The chief at the University of Dallas told me any SO would hire me in a minute with 27 years in a big city department. Not that I want to do that, but it would be nice to work for a department which offers printers with ink, and had officers who knew what they were doing.
