unabashedly hyped the white supremacist theory on Thursday night, ominously warning Fox News viewers that Democrats are using immigrants to “take over our country without firing a shot.”
Appearing on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, Patrick discussedshutting down six points of entry along the southern border amid a renewed surge in migrants. In the border community of Del Rio, there are more than 9,000 migrants crowded into a temporary staging area, with thousands more expected to cross the border soon.
What Texas' New Voting Law Means
Drive-thru voting and 24-hour polling are outlawed under the law as Republican lawmakers argued they were necessary only during the COVID-19 pandemic.State Democrats protested the bill for months, saying it discriminates against minority groups, making it harder for them to cast a vote. The bill limits how and when people can vote, removing options for drive-thru voting and 24-hour polling locations.
It didn’t take long for the lieutenant governor to liken the massive wave of migrantsof the country and the destruction of the GOP.
“Let me tell you something, Laura, and everyone watching: The revolution has begun,” Patrick told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “A silent revolution by the Democrat Party to take over the country.”
Calling on “every red state” to invoke Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution—which guarantees the nation “shall protect” each state from being invaded—Patrick said that an invasion is defined as “an unauthorized, uninvited, unwelcome incursion” into a territory.
“This is not authorized by the state of Texas, it is not welcomed by the state of Texas or any other Republican state I know, and they are not invited,” he fumed. “Every red state should invoke this clause because every red state is being impacted and the blue states reportedly don’t care.”
Big Tech Companies Helped Fund Far-Right Groups Pushing for Texas Abortion Ban
Corporate backlash to the Texas abortion ban has so far been narrow and targeted, but one notably quiet sector has plenty of room—and money—to work with: Big Tech. A review of public disclosures from Facebook, Google, and Amazon shows the tech giants have for years funded some of the most influential conservative political organizations and dark money groups responsible for the war on abortion rights. Those groups include The Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, the Committee for Justice, and the Republican Attorneys General Association.
At that point, Patrick then went full “Great Replacement” theory, which has been described as a “white supremacist tenet that the white race is in danger by a rising tide of non-white” and a belief that liberals are replacing white voters with Black and brown immigrants.
“When I say a revolution has begun, they are allowing this year probably 2 million—that is who we apprehended, maybe another million—into this country,” Patrick dramatically exclaimed. “At least in 18 years, even if they all don’t become citizens before then and can vote, in 18 years every one of them has two or three children, you’re talking about millions and millions and millions of new voters, and they will thank the Democrats and Biden for bringing them here.”
He added: “Who do you think they are going to vote for? So this is trying to take over our country without firing a shot. That is what is happening.”
