Texans, Meat, and Miscalculation

by baldilocks

Since nearly everyone is talking about the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, I’m going to talk about something else. I don’t like to bore people – at least not intentionally.

Let’s talk about painting targets, since that’s what Rep Joaquin Castro (D-TX) did when he publicized a list of San Antonio donors to the Trump campaign in the wake of the latest mass shootings – in El Paso, TX and in Dayton, OH. Why would Castro do such a thing? You had to be on Twitter this past weekend to see the hurricane of accusations against President Trump – that his “racist rhetoric” and his support for “white supremacy (sic)” spurred these shooters. By the way, most of the Organized Left don’t want to talk about the Dayton shooting because the perpetrator was one of their minions — a big supporter of Elizabeth Warren.

Anyway, following the line of assertion that the president is a racist, Castro decided that certain Trump supporters who live in his district needed to be outed as racists. (Fun fact: at least two of the donors had also contributed to Castro.)

One of these supporters is Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.

Castro must have imagined thousands of San Antonians converging on the barbecue joints armed with torches and pitchforks, terrorizing customers in the drive-thru and staging boycotts. He must have dreamed about literally running the pit masters out of town.

But there are some rules about living in the Lone Star State. You go to church on Sunday. You don’t talk bad about somebody’s momma. And you don’t mess with the brisket.

The day after Castro published that hateful screed, thousands of Texans piled into their pickup trucks and drove to the nearest Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.

Social media reports flooded in showing massive drive-thru lines backing up onto busy streets. Hungry customers patiently waited in lines out the door.

I guess Castro forgot that his district is in Texas.

Line at Bill Miller Bar-B-Q. Cite: Breitbart.

Update(DTG) It’s been a lot of years since our backup site has had an instalanche but with our primary site having problems and in the process of being updated and moved to a new host you’ll find our Magnificent Seven writers on either site for a while. Welcome. Find out why Donald Trump will be re-elected in five sentences but hear a warning lesson for him on the 2nd amendment. Check out Christopher Harper on this site here, and RH the navy man on our main site talking about a rusty problem here and discover why Joe Scarborough apparently doesn’t watch his own show and while why the I think the Clintons had nothing to do with Jeffrey Epstein’s death, but hope you think so and finally what the plan for both sites is.
