Conservative Pundit Torches ‘Absolutely Bats**t Crazy’ Republicans In Texas

Charlie Sykes, a conservative pundit, lamented Friday's race to the bottom to determine who can win the most MAGA among Republicans in Florida and Texas.
Although I am aware that Texas Republicans have been conservative for a while, there was a time when they were not completely batshit crazy. Sykes, founder and president of The Bulwark conservative website, spoke to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace via video shared online by Mediaite.

Sykes said that Texas Republicans were once respectable. We are now in the race between Texas, Arizona, and Florida to see who can win the most MAGA or who can play the best war games. It seems like this race to bottom we were talking about.

Sykes' comments were made during a discussion on a Texas law which instructs teachers to present opposing views on historical events. Texas Governor. Greg Abbotts (R), recently outlawed COVID-19 mandates in Texas, which is now subject to a restrictive abortion law.

This week, a school administrator was criticized for saying that educators should ensure that they have alternative perspectives to the Holocaust book that they have.

Sykes stated that it was easy for administrators to get in the way of teachers, but that the law should be the main focus. They don't know what is going to happen.

Sykes asked Sykes later: "What is the other side to the Holocaust?" Is it possible to give fourth-graders Mein Kampf? Is it possible to force them to listen to Seb Gorka's radio show? I don't know what she was thinking. This is what happens when politicians play culture war and try to force it into draconian legislation.
