Defense of Texas governor's tweet puts Houston lgbt drama in sad perspective

Yesterday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted that voters should say no to the Houston Equality Rights Ordinance (HERO) while using the inaccurate talking point about male predators invading female restrooms. I sent him a tweet back decrying his attack on the transgender community. Today, I got an answer, not from Abbott, but from a source which puts a sadly ironic perspective on the entire situation:

 I snipped the exchange just in case the person decided to erase the message. And for the record, this person is no joke. I snipped other tweets and I'm surprised that this racist had time to send me a tweet, with all of the Holocaust denying and attacking African-Americans:

I would love to show that last tweet to all of the African-Americans who voted against HERO. If segregation had ever been put to a public vote, people this bozo would be saying "No negroes raping White Women." with as much vigor as some folks are repeating the lying talking point of "No men in women's bathrooms."

The quote about "most states that have admitted persons of another race" is commonly attributed to Aristotle's POLITICS, yet it does not appear in that document. It's a foolish meme perpetuated by people desperate to find some rational foundation for their simple bigotry and ignorance.
