The Log Cabin Republicans [LCR] said the Texas convention should have allowed them to host a booth in the name of “inclusion.” Inclusion? The GOP? Well, the LCR says the proof that the GOP is more inclusive is the fact that a Mexican-American conservative Mayra Flores won a special election to take the state’s 34th congressional district.
“Texas Republicans just saw on Tuesday night what happens when the party includes new faces and voices – a Democrat-held seat was flipped for the first time in nearly a hundred years by a conservative Mexican woman. It’s clear that inclusion wins, which makes the Texas Republican Party leadership decision to exclude the Texas Log Cabin Republicans from their convention not just narrow-minded, but politically short-sighted.”
Let’s be clear, one Mexican-American winning her election does not make the party inclusive when they want troops at the border to keep immigrants, like Mayra Flores’ ancestors, out of the country.
