It's time we have a Chip Roy thread

Recommended Posts

I, like many of you, live in the heavily gerrymandered TX-21, and this assclown is our representative. We need to pay a lot more attention to the stupid shit he says/does.

Quote

 

Inflammatory U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-San Antonio, suggested during a talk-show appearance this week that the COVID-19 pandemic is a hoax perpetrated by Democrats and the media.

During a chat with right-wing radio host Steve Deace, Roy accused shadowy forces of ginning up fear of the coronavirus to damage the GOP in the fall election.

"It is all about November and all about reclaiming power in November," said Roy, a former staffer for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. "And I think on November 4, there'll be a magic awakening on how we suddenly beat the virus."

Roy added that he's asking the White House and his colleagues to hold hearings to "shine a light on the absolute fraud being perpetrated on the American people of fear."

Is this the TX-21 anonymous meeting?

Hello, my name is F250 and Chip Roy is my Congressman.

The district kind of makes sense but the way it narrowly slices into San Antonio and Austin is laughable.

Pro-pickup with a bonus rack?  

There's a Thailand tranny gloryhole joke in here somewhere.

I wish I could vote against him, but I'm over here in 15 which goes from Guadalupe all the way down to Mexico. In no way does this district make any sense.
And district 35 is probably just as f'ed up.

I gave a lot of money to Kopser 2 years ago and was disappointed.  I'll be interested to see if Roy gets any kind of incumbency boost to counteract the name brand and gender of Wendy Davis, as well as the anti-Trump wave.  My hope is the latter three outweigh.  I think Wendy has a chance, but she needs to get the suburban vote out better than Joe seemed to.

It brings me down that I barely miss out on being able to vote against him and for Wendy. I live on the east side of the train tracks by Crockett High and missed out by a few blocks.

Also, it bugs me that he looks like a less cool Kevin Fowler.

Double click on the map below and start panning around to see how weirdly specific neighborhoods in South Austin were chopped up, for example the little notch along Brodie or your neighborhood with a bit of his district just to the north and south.

Edit: Or how specific it gets around Old Enfield and off Riverside.

Good lord, let's make sure to completely fuck students in West Campus and all of 78704.

If I remember right, when I looked at his map he included a good portion of west campus but not the Texas State apartment area (I did not attend Texas State, tell me if I fucked up).  Have the rest of it to Roger Williams if I remember right. Biff beat me, happens to a lot of college campuses, was a pretty good example in North Carolina regarding a HBCU that is cut in half.

Whoever said the district was just fine as drawn wasn't paying attention to how precisely carved up it was.

What was done to Austin in 2010 redistricting was not done by accident.
 

These same maps are what’s currently responsible for a lot of the flips though. Crack and pack doesn’t work when the suburbs get younger because of city housing prices and shitty Republican values, not just candidates.

Apparently I just moved into TX-21 last year and didn't know it.  I don't know who gerrymandered this shit to look exactly like Massachusetts, but at least I live on Cape Cod now.

Look at what they did to San Marcos.  I live literally one block (in the blue) from that 1-looking thing on the left.

What is it with the Texas GOP and electing people not from Texas? They literally cannot help themselves.

It's weird, non-native Texans move in and heavily play up the caricatures of Texans and some how get elected to office.

Because it’s all bullshit.  I’m born in Lubbock and raised in Austin. I got over the Texas state pride bullshit...we’ll probably in my early 20s when I realized the people pushing it the hardest were the people who were most full of shit.

Chips Aroy and Granny Goeb are both from Maryland. Coincidence? I think not.

They really don't like Texans so they pick carpetbaggers to mold us into what they think is "Texan". Think the old dime novel writers in Philadelphia writing about the old west.
