A Republican Congressman is telling his fellow Republicans that being a decent human being is easy: Don’t be a bigot. And he’s from Texas, of all places. Representative Will Hurd made his comments at a meeting of the Log Cabin Republicans, so he was speaking to a friendly audience for that message.
“Many of my colleagues don’t [know]… If you’re at least the age of 40 in most places across this country you have to whisper that you’re a Republican. This is a party that is shrinking. The party is not growing in some of the largest parts of our country.”
“Why is that? I’ll tell you. It’s real simple,” said Hurd. “Don’t be an asshole. Don’t be a racist. Don’t be a misogynist, right? Don’t be a homophobe. These are real basic things that we all should learn when we were in kindergarten.”
He also has been a staunch critic of Trump’s border policies and voted for the Equality Act. How on earth does he stay in office? He doesn’t even represent Austin. Good on him though.
