"DOJ’s accusations of racial discrimination are baseless. In 2011, both houses of the Texas Legislature were controlled by large Republican majorities, and their redistricting decisions were designed to increase the Republican Party’s electoral prospects at the expense of the Democrats....The redistricting decisions of which DOJ complains were motivated by partisan rather than racial considerations, and the plaintiffs and DOJ have zero evidence to prove the contrary. It is perfectly constitutional for a Republican-controlled legislature to make partisan districting decisions, even if there are incidental effects on minority voters who support Democratic candidates."
The Republicans in the State of Texas are openly claiming that it is perfectly acceptable for them to rig the electoral system in their favor. Of course, Republicans everywhere have been doing this for years, but even they have not had the brass to claim that it is okay. Well, those days are over. If they can steal the government, tough shit for you, America.
I've got nothing more to say about this. Any sentient being can see where we are in this country, and what lies ahead.
