Methinks he doth protest too much.

Texas lieutenant governor slams ‘dumpster fire’ Portland and its ‘depraved’ leaders for planned boycott over state’s abortion law

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick lambasted Portland leaders as “depraved” and accused them of putting residents in “grave danger” in response to the city’s plan to ban buying goods and services from the Lone Star State over its new law restricting access to abortions.

“Portland boycotting Texas is a complete joke,” sniped Patrick, a conservative-talk-radio-host-turned-politician, on Twitter Monday. “A city led by depraved officials allows lawlessness, putting their citizens in grave danger. A boycott will hurt them, not us. Texas’ economy is stronger than ever. We value babies and police, they don’t.”

Days prior, the Texas lieutenant governor — who has a history of making incendiary comments — similarly trashed Mayor Ted Wheeler for Portland’s decision to cut millions of dollars from its police bureau’s budget amid racial justice protests last year that continued nightly for months, erupting into occasional riots and clashes between cops and demonstrators.

“Texas is solidly #prolife and Texans support law enforcement,” wrote Patrick, who assumed his state’s second most powerful elected office in 2015. “Meanwhile, Portland is a dumpster fire and Texas is thriving.”

3. Worse, they value zygotes and undifferentiated clumps of cells, not babies.
