Election 2016: Keith Ellison: ‘I would love to see Elizabeth Warren’ run
In the six weeks following her headline-grabbing filibuster, Wendy Davis raised $1.2 million — nearly 40 percent of it from outside Texas. Davis drew national attention following the filibuster against an abortion-restriction bill that helped shut down the Texas Senate and prompted Gov. Rick Perry to call lawmakers back into another special session. In the wake of Davis’ new-found fame, Davis has been urged by some Democrats to run for governor next year. She says she will announce her political plans — whether to run for reelection as a senator from Fort Worth or as a Democrat for governor — in a few weeks.
Her latest finance report shows that between the June 25 filibuster through July, Davis raised $793,800 from Texas and nearly $470,000 from donors outside Texas. Her biggest donor states were California ($103,694), New York ($68,764) and the Washington DC area ($59,000).
No surprise there considering the liberal bent of CA, NY, and DC, but when you think about it, what is Ms. Davis really doing when she puts on her high heels and fashionable outfits to raise money for whatever her eventual future campaign will be (whether it’s re-election to the state Senate or Governor) ? She’s whipping up the masses into a frenzy and convincing them to donate to her campaign all the while walking all over the backs of past, present, and future aborted babies. As a friend on Facebook put it:
That’s a powerful metaphor, ST. Wendy in her fashionable Louboutins trampling all those broken little bodies.
Yes. Remember that the next time you see Ms. Davis on MSNBC or some other similar left wing network / program being fawned over by whoever she is being interviewed by at the time. Remember that when you read stories from the mediots about how “amazing” her fundraising talents are, how “bright” her future is. All of it, every single bit of it, is because she “stood up” against people who wanted to protect unborn babies at the 20 week mark and beyond from being mutilated by the inhumane abortion procedure that would pull their little body parts out bit by bloody piece. Sen. Davis stood up for the “right” for a women to kill their unborn babies for any reason – not just talking about life of the mother reasons here, which would be understandable, but for ANY reason. How much “guts” does it take to stand up for a woman’s “right” to kill her unborn child when you know what glowing national press you will receive? It’s stark, and difficult to contemplate, but it must be said.
Wendy Davis essentially tap dances on the dead bodies and graves of the millions of aborted babies who will never get the chance that she was blessed with to find their way in the world, and people should never forget that, no matter how sharp her fashion style is.
