The Attempt to Criminalize Campaign and Political Contributions for “Politically Incorrect” Causes


Because actual democracy is the last thing that the left wants. They want a totalitarian oligarchy that has only the appearance of representative government. With recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court that the ability to raise money is fungible with actual free speech and the concept of a secret ballot was specifically put in place as a means of thwarting voter intimidation, here is all the absolute proof  you needed to see just one way the left subverts the concept of popular choice and free will.

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair donated $10,000 this week to opponents of the city’s embattled equal rights ordinance, entering the political fray over the law headed to voters in November.

McNair, a frequent GOP donor, mailed the  $10,000 check to opponents  earlier this week, according to Campaign for Houston spokesman Jared Woodfill. He said the donation “was very exciting for us.”

Critics of the law, largely Christian conservatives, object to the non-discrimination protections it extends to gay and transgender residents — the law also lists 13 other protected groups.  Supporters of the ordinance, including Mayor Annise Parker, have warned that repealing the law could damage the city’s economy and could jeopardize high-profile events such as Houston’s 2017 Super Bowl.

Woodfill pushed back on that notion Wednesday.
