Texas republican desperately looks for scapegoat in the wake of his signing bill after bill that made gun massacre so easy that even a child could do it.

If they have any sense of shame... well, I guess I can stop right there.

Abbott has a singular talent, and that's faking outrage while being an asshole.  And he's not very good at it.

What isolated incident are we up to now in Texas?  Got to be quadruple digits by now.

"Hey, all of a sudden this bootleather tastes gross!"
 
2022-05-28 10:06:03 AM  
I'm livid, Governor. You failed to do anything and then pretended to be surprised.
 
2022-05-28 10:06:50 AM  
So now he's gonna demand a full investigation and the police who lied will be held accountable and their jobs are on the line.

PFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTT.

Held accountable, they said. Jobs on the line, they said.

So... another Tuesday?

Livid that the lies were reported on.  We need to clamp down on the media for reporting unpleasant truths so that failures like Abbott don't look so bad.

The Gubbner enabled it and the cops expedited, so now he wants them to take the heat. And maybe some paid administrative leave plus a sternly worded letter in their files.

Positively livid that the power of his level 8 chicanery spell is fizzing out.

Well thank heavens we don't have to talk about gun control anymore!

Abbot's on a roll!
 
2022-05-28 10:20:03 AM  
The important thing to remember is that Abbott is the real victim here.

*mumbled cursing*

Marcus Aurelius: Abbott has a singular talent, and that's faking outrage while being an asshole.  And he's not very good at it.


Oh, he's great at being an asshole.  It's hard to imagine a situation involving Abbott that restores karmic balance to the universe that doesn't involve a pit full of used hypodermic needles.
 
2022-05-28 10:29:11 AM  
Livid my a--

He'd be livid if he discovered a 20 point vote swing for Beto.

This damn thing is nothing but an inconvenience.

"Law enforcement is going to earn the trust of the public by making sure they thoroughly and exhaustively investigate exactly what happened."

That's 50 gallons of bullshiat flowing out from under his ten-gallon hat. Texas is going to shovel another half a billion dollars to the cops (just like the did in 2020, and that was just to the big 3 cities), because they need to be able to do their jobs and because it pisses off the libs (and conservatives aren't about to get on board with that defund shiat).

Basically, they're going to send in more trains.

In the state, when an active shooting is declared, police are supposed to go as soon as possible and stop the shooter.

Yeah, well, cops are supposed to do a lot of things they don't actually do (like protect people). Who's gonna hold them accountable, the same governor from the same party who would happily eat buckets of glass shards if a police chief even suggested it?
 
2022-05-28 10:30:02 AM  
Is he going to apologize to Beto?
 
2022-05-28 10:30:19 AM  
Please, the only thing he's upset about is they admitted it and he has to deal with the fallout. This is who the GOP are. This jackass told the NRA in his speech that gun laws don't work so there's nothing we can do.

Ragin' Asian: Abbot's on a roll!


I wish he was on a roll. . .many rolls, actually. . .at a feast for cannibals.
 
2022-05-28 10:36:55 AM  
politician admitted that earlier statements he had made about law enforcement's reaction to the massacre had been wrong

Holy shiat that's a first ever in the entire history of the GOP
 
2022-05-28 10:38:34 AM  
Republicans are so stupidly transactional they can't figure out their only play here is to throw this PD to the wolves, or they'll never again be able to claim we need police to maintain order, or that we should treat police with respect "because they put their lives on the line".

Don't try and stop me!!!  I'm gonna go ram that door down!  What? It's locked on the inside? Well damn!!
 
2022-05-28 10:54:09 AM  
At this point, I'm fully expecting to learn that most of the victims were actually shot by the police when they stormed the room.
 
2022-05-28 10:55:30 AM  
To be completely honest, it is going to take the kid(s) of a high ranking GOP politician to die in one of these events before anything happens.

And even then, they will likely be treated like a pariah because, well, that gun lobby money is just too much fun!

Personally I don't like it, because they are just kids, despite their parents... but hell, their parents claim they are acceptable sacrifices.

Even worse if it were one of the grieving parents of one of these atrocities that did it, to prove a point.

I love how so many right wingers are under the impression that the left is not well armed.
We just don't run around waving our guns like metal penises for everyone to see.

oops, wrong thread.

Valter: I'm livid, Governor. You failed to do anything and then pretended to be surprised.


He did something. He lowered the age requirement to buy an AR-15 to 18 making it possible for the shooter to buy one.

Two.

The shooter bought two.

Governor Wheelie McGunNut is surprised the police lied to protect their own?  Just fly a couple of more Thin Blue Line flags. That should make the cops feel better about letting 19 children die.
Maybe throw in a couple of Blue Lives Matter bumper stickers. You can tape the coffins closed.
 
2022-05-28 11:16:17 AM  
Only thing he's really pissed at is the fact that he went in hard on supporting the cops early on and Beto called him out during that first oorah for the po po press conference. Now he's got Texas sized egg on his face that is only helping Beto.

I thought I had read that but wasn't 100% sure. Point still stands.

Its the "Warrior" training those police are getting I think.

Now the governor asked for a full report on this, we should be explained why this happened right?

Right?
