The fallout from the last week of the Texas GOP 2016 Primary and the House District 121 race are still manifesting. Brandon Darby, described in a February 27 article posted on TexasGOPVote.com as the “boss” of Breitbart Texas, gave cover to Speaker Joe Straus and his record of betrayal on border security and sanctuary cities.
Scott Braddock of the Quorum Report reported within the article “Police Officers and Breitbart Texas Boss Slam Judson for Immigration Attacks Against Straus” posted on TexasGOPVote.com, that he heard Darby stating on a Lubbock radio station:
Saying conservatives should not “sit silent” when lies are told in campaigns, Darby said the border security attacks on Straus, Frullo, and others are over the line. “We’ve gotten to the point at going against Straus that we have forsaken fairness and reality,” Darby said. Darby said he is not picking sides in Texas House races, but he wanted to make clear that the attacks being orchestrated by Dunn’s spokesman Michael Quinn Sullivan are untrue.
“This is dishonest and unfair”.
Brandon Darby of Breitbart Texas is referring specifically to the story that was reported by RER that Dan Golvach, the father of slain Houstonian Spencer Golvach, puts primary blame for his son’s murder on Texas Speaker of the House Joe Straus. Golvach willingly made a video for the Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) leveling those allegations toward Straus. He boldly repeated those charges on RagingElephantsRadio.com, live, in two separate interviews with George Rodriguez.
Spencer Golvach was murdered while sitting at a Houston traffic light on January 31, 2015 at the hands of an illegal alien that had been deported four times.
Speaker Joe Straus represents House District 121 in San Antonio. He faced two opponents in the 2016 primary – Jeff Judson, and Sheila Bean. The YCT-Golvach video hit the public domain with only days left before Election Day.
Area law enforcement officers circled the wagons around Straus immediately, not counterattacking against Golvach, but against the candidates, especially Judson, for “exploiting” a grieving father. Then came Darby with the pile on via twitter saying Judson “crossed line and allowed hatred for Straus to make him lose sight of decency.” Darby Tweet #1
Darby kept stirring the pot with a little help from some friends. (We’ll reveal who they really are in future articles). The Lubbock radio show on which Darby made his Braddock-quoted comments retweeted a Darby tweet in which he continued to challenge Judson to explain how Straus is responsible for the death of Golvach’s son. Once again, going after Straus’ main primary rival, Judson, and directly giving cover to Straus.
At this point of the affair, the Straus guard had not mentioned the direct quotes of Golvach, or his name. They did not reference his interview on RER in which he reiterated his beliefs about Straus’ role in his son’s death. Even in the article posted by TexasGOPVote.com, Dan Golvach or his slain son Spencer, or never mentioned. Darby Tweet #2
From all indications, both Judson and Bean did remain silent after the storm began, and have remained so. However, not Dan Golvach. His tone was one of being totally livid at Brandon Darby, Breitbart Texas writer Bob Price, amnesty lobbyist Norm Adams, and of course, Straus himself when he appeared on RER to slam Darby for his defense of Straus.
“I wholeheartedly stand by what I stated in the video. Joe Straus and his purposefully blocking sanctuary cities legislation is why my son, and others, have fallen victims to illegal aliens that shouldn’t be here”, said Golvach on RER with George Rodriguez.
“I understand that Brandon Darby with Breitbart has done some radio interviews trying to debunk what I’ve said. I’m a little bit curious about that. Because if you listen to Brandon he’s one of the most informed when it comes to this issue (sarcastically). I’m just a blues guitar player. But, I know this, George…” continued Golvach.
Golvach then went on to recite on RER the history of how several bills were killed under the gavel of Joe Straus, flawlessly.
In the midst of laying out the case against Straus, Golvach said, “Here’s where Brandon doesn’t get it, or he does get it and he’s carrying water for someone.”
Darby’s vigorous support for Straus may not be as stunning as one might think. The connections between Breitbart Texas and pro-amnesty, pro-RINO forces and factions are plentiful and visible. RER will continue to develop the story. Yet, it’s safe to say, those questionable connections between Breitbart Texas and the plutocrats have now shown themselves. Darby and Breitbart Texas have now disappointingly revealed their bias toward the status quo and the RINO plutocracy of Texas. Let’s hope this is a one-off?
