Guess Who’s Calling Pro-Life Republicans “The Taliban?”

because truth rarely matters

Folks, we staunchly promote and defend the HCRP platform shared at www.harriscountygop.com. You will not find us waffling on social issues. We leave that to others who embrace progressive agendas and opt for the slippery slope. Instead, we support the 2012 Republican National Platform, the Republican Party of Texas Platform, the Republican Party Principles, and the HCRP Local Government Platform. It’s that simple.

We welcome candidates who steadfastly support the platform and mirror the conservative principles of our voters. No moral relativism. No diluted values. Period.

For instance, we do not consider unborn babies “disposable” even in the midst of intense criticism—criticism, by the way, that has reached new decibels of outrage. Some are furious that we are staunchly pro-life. They demand that we vote in pro-abortion candidates. We will not. As Ronald Reagan said, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”.

Case in point. Local blogger David Jennings has thrown a tantrum over our tabling of discussion in June regarding precinct chair contender Nghi Ho. Mr. Ho is a four-term Alief ISD Board member, former Navy Lieutenant, UT graduate and small business owner—an otherwise spectacular candidate, except that he rejects our pro-life platform. And therein lies the problem. Our decision to table discussion was further compounded by his own concerns that running for an additional school board term might hamper his ability to perform optimally in both positions.

Our decision incensed Jennings, so much so that he labeled pro-life Republicans “The Taliban,” lashing out in his personal blog, Big Jolly Politics, with hyperbole so bizarre it begs clarification. While the slur was meant to herd us into the pro-choice fold, it actually points to an irony. The truth is, the actual Taliban spill innocent blood. The HCRP stands against the spilling of innocent blood. We are, after all, committedly pro-life. Think about that.

Progressive media tools will always endeavor to chip away at our platform. That’s the reality. Certainly liberals owe them a debt of gratitude—big time—as mud is slung at pro-life voters. But calling Republicans “The Taliban” is about as intelligent as calling Big Jolly Politics “PRAVDA.” It’s stupid. It’s a new low. And it’s another attempt to fundamentally dilute what we hold dear. The goal seems to be the engineering of a progressive Republican Party, which is simply a clone of Democrat party. No, thank you.

As assaults fly against our constituency, we’ll steadfastly continue the mission. Truth be told, the verbal zingers are possible only because the critics are alive and well, unlike abortion victims. Unfortunately, abortion supporters do not believe their fellow human beings deserve the same shot at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. So who’s the real Taliban? Enough said.

  • I can understand pro-abortion people being unhappy. But hey, this is politics and if they had the power that they have in the Demoncrat party they would leave us out. Their intentions are clear, scream victim and once in power dominate and squash any decenting Constitutional voices. They are just like Obama’s administration. We that are Constitutional Conservatives know that peace through strength works. Multi-culturalism, homo-sexual rights and supporting the world is to much for the Amerians to endure and pay for.

    • Actually, I’m unaware of any of us criticizing the committee whoa re pro-abortion. We just reject the notion that there is no room for anyone who isn’t a 100%er on the platform, recognizing that Reagan held a quite different view than the committee does. Indeed, the Committee’s standards would keep Barry Goldwater from being approved as a precinct chair because he would be insufficiently conservative/Republican for them.

      Apparently the members of the committee would rather we be a small tent party pure in principle and unsuccessful at the ballot box.

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    If you were to order pizza for dinner tonight, but the phone attendant taking your pizza order asked you if you wanted dark meat or white meat, or crispy or regular skin, what would you think? Perhaps you had dialed the wrong number?

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Let’s take the City of Houston mayor’s race. We have two “Republican” candidates, Stephen Costello and Bill King.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
