(LifeSiteNews) — In a stunning electoral upset further presaging a massive red tsunami coming in November, a pro-life Mexican-born candidate won a special election in south Texas, the first time the area has chosen a Republican over a Democrat in more than 150 years.
Republican Mayra Flores defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez on Tuesday in Texas’ 34th congressional district, which had voted for Joe Biden over Donald Trump by a margin of 13 points in 2020. The district’s population is 84% Hispanic.
“For over 100 years, we have been taken for granted,” Flores said at an election night party. “I will show you what real representation looks like. I will represent all people.”
Flores is “the first GOP candidate to represent that area of the Rio Grande Valley since 1870,” reported The Houston Chronicle, and is “the first congresswoman born in Mexico.”
“The victory demonstrated the growing popularity of the Republican party among Latino voters in the traditionally Democratic South Texas,” noted The Post Millennial’s Ari Hoffman.
“Republicans have been eager to flip the seat as part of their new offensive in South Texas after Biden’s underperformance throughout the predominantly Hispanic region in the 2020 election,” explained The Texas Tribune’s Patrick Svitek.
“Flores campaigned hard on her story as the wife of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and as a Mexican immigrant whose parents brought her to the United States as a young child,” continued Svitek. “She mostly ignored Sanchez but took a sharp tone against Washington, D.C., Democrats in general. In one of her TV ads, she said the Rio Grande Valley is ‘under attack’ at the border and promised not to let the ‘compadrismo’ — cronyism — ‘in Washington ruin our communities.’”
Dave Rubin (left) hosts one of the most popular conservative chat-shows on YouTube, but we now know his views are as extreme as many on the left.
Not only are Rubin and his homosexual partner using surrogate mothers to bear two babies, thus deliberately depriving the children of their true mothers' care once born, but he also admitted those babies would have been aborted if found to have severe disabilities.
SIGN the petition telling Dave Rubin that true conservatives protect life and uphold the right of children to be raised by their mothers.
Mr. Rubin recently said he also supports abortion up until 12 weeks, compounding the regrettable pro-eugenics stance he has taken towards unborn babies with severe disabilities.
There are few things more tragic in our world today than the disposable attitude of many people towards innocent human life, but that is exactly what Rubin thinks is acceptable.
This must be called out - it's simply abhorrent to treat the disabled, the unwanted, and the vulnerable with such callous disregard.
Tell Dave Rubin that his pro-eugenics views have no place in a humane society.
Can you imagine finding out your parents would have aborted you if you had a severe disability?
Well, that's unfortunately what will happen to the children Rubin raises if they someday read his latest book, "Don't Burn This Country".
There he shares that he and his family's decision would have been to "terminate the pregnancy" if a severe disability was found in one of the babies now being borne by their surrogate mothers.
Rubin must understand how cruel this entire situation is, not only for the mothers and their children who will be taken away, but also for disabled people to know they are essentially thought of as "lives unworthy of life."
Real conservatives must speak up now and tell Rubin that his pro-abortion views are abhorrent.
Mr. Rubin's public split with the left is to be welcomed, but "conservative" leaders like him will do much more harm than good if they continue using their platform to undermine the family and the right of children to be born.
If we let these cornerstones of society be attacked from within, what hope have we of building a culture we can be proud to hand on?
Make a stand today for unborn children and their mothers - tell Dave Rubin that he's wrong.
True conservatives cannot afford to take the easy shortcut of ignoring Rubin's cruel position, lest we continue to be shunted further left, becoming radical liberals in everything but name.
So, please SIGN and SHARE this petition today,

Included among the voters who pulled the lever for Flores was the world’s richest man, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
“I voted for Mayra Flores,” tweeted Musk, adding, “first time I ever voted Republican.”
Musk also predicted a “Massive red wave in 2022,” referring to the upcoming midterm elections in November.

“Welcome to the Republican Party!” responded Flores. “We welcome all walk aways from all walks of life. The party of opportunity, prosperity, and freedom is here to stay. We look forward to working together and building a better future for all of America.”

Musk was then asked which GOP presidential candidate he would vote for. Musk answered, “DeSantis,” referring to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

When Gov. DeSantis was asked at a press conference about Musk’s early show of faith in his possible presidential run, the governor reacted with humor, “I’m focused on 2022, but with Elon Musk what I would say is, you know, I welcome support from African-Americans.”

Because South Africa-born Musk is white, liberal pundits disregarded DiSantis’ humor and chose instead to be outraged.
MSNBC host Joy Reid announced, “[I] said before that Gov. Ron DeSantis is a humorless, more openly fascist version of Trump. Here he is displaying the former quality in that for him, ‘humor’ means mocking Black Americans with his own, idiotic and offensive version of replacement theory. Black Floridians take note.”

“And we thought we couldn’t do worse than Donald Trump,” tweeted ABC contributor Yvette Simpson. “They are saying the ‘racist part out loud’ and laughing about it. No more white sheets— it’s all out in the open now.”

Black Republican Vernon Jones, a Trump-backed candidate for U.S. Congress in Georgia, played off of DeSantis with a good-natured tweet, saying, “Congratulations to my African-American brother Elon Musk on his first Republican vote haha!”
“We’re growing the party every single day,” added Jones.
