Wendy Davis campaign says Greg Abbott cited ‘white nationalist’

http://twitter.com/#!/willrahn/status/451120175166021632

Republican gubernatorial candidate and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott recently cited the education research of American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray, whom liberals consider toxic. Here’s the incredibly racist research by Murray that Abbott cited:

“Family background has the most decisive effect on student achievement, contributing to a large performance gap between children from economically disadvantaged families and those from middle class homes.”

The Wendy Davis gubernatorial campaign apparently considers this waaaay beyond the pale. It is responding by citing the Southern Poverty Law Center’s description of Murray as a “white nationalist.” The SPLC is a paranoid, far-left organization which, as the late Ron Smith of WBAL put it, believes America is “filled with Klansmen and rife with people eager to perpetrate genocide.” A year ago, in response to  the SPLC’s so-called “hate group” list, deranged domestic terrorist Floyd Corkins sought to “kill as many as possible” at the Family Research Council.

Yesterday, Davis’ communications director Zac Petkanas tried his hardest to portray Abbott as white nationalist-friendly:

http://twitter.com/#!/Zac_Petkanas/status/451177526245597184

Just in case anyone missed the smear, Petkanas retweeted these:

http://twitter.com/#!/scottbraddock/status/451204625425653760

Here’s a problem: If Greg Abbott is guilty of crimethink for citing Murray, then so is former President Bill Clinton:

Oddly, “white nationalist” Murray has tweeted his opposition to discrimination against Asian-American college applicants. His most controversial book, “The Bell Curve,” was co-authored by Richard Herrnstein, a professor of psychology at that hotbed of white nationalism, Harvard University.

Greg Abbott slams Wendy Davis’ sudden support for open carry gun laws

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis recently rattled some supporters by coming out in favor of “open carry” gun laws in Texas. Davis’ opponent, Greg Abbott, reminded Texas voters to be on the lookout for a gun rights poser.

 As Twitchy reported, Wendy Davis has reached a sickening new low with a desperate, tasteless, and vicious ad attacking her opponent Greg Abbott. Could she possibly debase herself even more? You bet she could.

Here are some more campaign ads we can look forward to from the Wicked Witch of Texas:

According to Democrat Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, her Republican opponent Greg Abbott “won’t say whether he’d defend an interracial marriage ban.” The fact that Abbott is married to a woman of Hispanic heritage was either overlooked or ignored by Team Wendy.

Since turnabout is fair play, what won’t Wendy Davis say? Tweeters are mocking like the wind:

From The Washington Free Beacon:

On Monday, Davis’s campaign organized a press conference in an effort to prove that some of her best friends are confined to wheelchairs. “Greg Abbott got his justice. Why doesn’t he believe that a rape survivor or a person with a disability or a victim paralyzed forever…should get justice too?” Davis said. “What makes Greg Abbott think it’s okay to deny them, his fellow Texans, the justice that he rightly went to court to receive?”

Stiles merely pointed out that Davis is trying to do major damage control after her horrible attack ad against Greg Davis — and that her latest efforts are only making her look even worse.

With all due respect to Mr. White, Wendy Davis is not a scrupulous woman. Her intentions are purely selfish. And she’s proven that she has no qualms about trampling on humanity if it gets her ahead.

Busted: Wendy Davis supporters caught mocking Abbott’s disability

As Twitchy reported, Texas gubernatorial hopeful Wendy Davis recently pointed out that her opponent Greg Abbott “hasn’t walked a day in [her] shoes.” Abbott, of course, is a paraplegic, so he can’t walk at all.

Now, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have come out with a shocking new video that catches members of Battleground Texas, “a grassroots organization dedicated to turning Texas blue,” cruelly mocking Abbott and his disability:
