A local Texas Republican Party official is arguing that the nation must close its borders to all immigration, legal or otherwise, if the GOP ever wants to elect another American president. “With every passing year it’s getting harder and harder to elect a Republican president, and frankly, if things don’t change, in a few years […]
Peter Morrison, the pro-secession and race-baiting treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party in southeast Texas, has released another political screed that portrays white Christians as victims of an increasingly diverse American electorate. And this time he refers darkly to a future in which he and like-minded political activists will be able to “dispatch our […]
Anti-Straus Activist Blames Minorities and ‘Maggots’ for Obama Victory and Calls for Texas to Secede
Peter Morrison, the race-obsessed right-wing activist who helped lead unsuccessful efforts to oust Republican Joe Straus as speaker of the Texas House in 2011, is taking yesterday’s election victory by President Obama very poorly, to say the least. Morrison, who writes a periodic e-newsletter (The Peter Morrison Report) for like-minded activists, has in the past […]
Anti-Straus Activist in Texas Worries about Maintaining ‘Traditional American Demographic Status Quo’
When right-wing activist Peter Morrison promoted (unsuccessful) efforts to have state Rep. Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, removed as speaker of the Texas House in late 2010 and early 2011, he noted that other speaker candidates were “Christians and true conservatives.” Straus is Jewish, which Morrison made sure readers of his anti-Straus emails knew.

So let’s take a closer look at an anti-immigrant group behind a Texas Capitol rally during which a speaker expressed her frustration over the fact […]
One of the state’s right-wing extremists who has been among the most vocal in demanding the replacement of Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, as speaker of the Texas House appears to have a stunningly ignorant understanding of civil rights history. In a new e-mail commentary about the speaker’s race on Friday, Peter Morrison insists that the […]
Has the religious right’s effort to topple Texas House Speaker Joe Straus become an anti-Semitic smear campaign? Quorum Report (subscription required) has now posted various e-mails from groups and individuals opposed to Straus, who is Jewish. Excerpts: “Straus is going down in Jesus name.” “[W]e finally found a Christian conservative who decided not to be […]
We heard nuttiness in many forms throughout 2009, including the Texas governor flirting with secessionists and the lieutenant governor criticizing the president of the United States for winning the Nobel Peace Prize. And there was plenty of downright hatefulness. More quotes from 2009: “There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to […]
