DAN PATRICK SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF
This is a day of national mourning. Today, parents across America grieve with the families of the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
This senseless act of hate should bring us together as one American family in solidarity with the victims. Instead, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick took the opportunity to callously attack the victims of this horrible crime.
In a post on Twitter just hours after the mass shooting that left 50 sons and daughters dead, Patrick issued a biblical quote stating “a man reaps what he sows.” This post has sparked outrage on social media and should outrage all Texans. Patrick is now trying to claim the post was just a case of bad timing.
“Let me be clear. There is no place, no excuse, no justification to insinuate the men and women who died this morning somehow deserved their fate because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Shame on you, Dan Patrick. You owe Texans an immediate apology.”
“What you and other public officials across Texas should be doing today is making sure Texans are safe, and that we have the laws in place to swiftly prosecute hate crimes and acts of terror.”
“We have come so far in my lifetime, but hate is real, and we must confront it at every step,” says Ogg. “My deepest condolences to the victims. We must all come together to demand justice.”
