An idea for the Texas Senate if Wendy Davis decides to filibuster again and bring in the goons.
6/28/13

Posted on 06/28/2013 2:55:38 PM PDT by DallasBiff

Wendy Davis is the new darling of the left(dems, msm, etc.). If she decides to filibuster again, to sustain her new pro-abortion heroine status, I think that the Texas Senate should adopt a new rule for the filibuster.

The new rule would be that after a half hour of speaking the other side gets to use a "silent rebuttal". The silent rebuttal would be the use of graphics or text to rebut her testimony, by using a split screen on TV, where the other side could use pictures such as of a 23 week old baby that was aborted and with the text stating that "This is what Wendy Davis is defending".

Interrupting her filibuster by voice is not allowed, but a picture says a thousand words.

I bet her dem goons will be screaming that's not fair.

Why can’t people hold up signs silently while she’s talking? That’s not violating rules. If there are size limits, keep em within size limits.

A pea shooter for her catheter bag.

Flash bangs and stingers for her supporters.

I agree. This is exactly what needs to be done. They show the effects of cigarette smoking & what it does. People need to see what abortion looks like.

See I don’t like changing rules because our side is against the topic. That is such a Demoncrat tactic. Let the woman talk and pass a law later like they are doing. When we filibuster next time, I don’t want the Democtrats showing signs every 30 minutes.

And what signs would the dems show? An aborted baby wearing Wendy Davis's pink tennis shoes petting a puppy.

I made this suggestion on another thread: These Senators should have to see pics and watch a video of 20 week old fetuses and abortion procedures. Holding up pictures would offer the same story.

I've read that groups from OFA are being bused in to protest, next week.

There’s supposedly a run on the pink shoes Davis wore. Why don’t pro-life supporters wear baby sneakers pinned to their lapels? It would symbolize those who really need protection, and who will have no voice, no choice, if pro-abortion activists get their way.

Hopefully, pro-life groups are organizing to counteract whatever the leftist pro-aborts have planned.

Unfortunately, the point of a filibuster is to “have the floor” without relinquishing it - by definition. And so, we should make her TAKE the floor, properly, for the full time.

I haven’t heard, but I hope they address the abortion law first in this session. I don’t think Windy the Butcher could last a full 12 hours.

Good suggestion. While Davis should wear a necklace of fetus skulls.

I sure hope they do. I’d see if I could participate if I knew about it far enough in advance. When is the next session called to meet?

Rick Perry is on to her scheme and stated that Wendy Davis is hijacking democracy with her filibusters. That leads me to believe that he or and Dewhurst will take stronger action against her hijacking of democracy the next time she pulls this stunt. Troopers could be ordered to remove her or they could cut off the TV broadcast of her filibuster.

Call it the The Filibuster of the Baby Killer.

Please ping or Freepmail me to any set plans or info. I may be able to make it.

The session is called to start on Monday, but my Rep said they probably won't get to actual votes, etc 'til Tuesday afternoon.

Pretty simple, the minute one of those hags start ranting, video it and get it up to you tube.

An even better one is to be there several hours earlier and take every seat in the gallery.

You want troopers to remove her from the floor of the Senate because she is engaged in a filibuster (vile as it may be)??? Do you realize the terrible precedent that would set???

Let her filibuster all she wants - the session can be up to 30 days, she can’t stall that whole time.

Did you get that TX ping list together for Monday?

Well, obviously, everybody’s invited. Tshirts and signs JC’s working on, but the more ideas the merrier. I have 4 sign ideas myself, need to get my a$$ to CVS for the poster paper and get some sticks. I have the glue and the paint.

What I am saying is that during Wendy's filibuster after an 1/2 hour or so, the TV shot is allowed to show a silent rebuttal with a split screen, such as a 23 week old aborted baby, with the text, "This is what Wendy Davis is defending".

Nothing in your above rule says anything about official Texas Senate TV coverage.

The MSM will be covering Wendy, but they will run away, if my suggested rule was used.

Yes the MSM would try to edit the footage of the split screen, but make the rule, that the MSM can't edit the official TV Texas Senate debate.

Meeting should be Sunday here - going to sit with the other organizers and get it all worked out.

But yeah, there’s going to be plenty of folks there!

Here is where I saw it. This is a group that produces international media to educate about options to abortion.

They should not have been (no should they have been allowed to drown out the proceedings, of course).

We’re getting together a recriprocal ‘special’ - POSHITUS’s words - rally in Austin to knock down Wendy Davis. We could use a little logistical guidance.

It’s easy to get to Austin: IH-35 or I-10.

... fetus skulls.

Don't fall into their silly linguistic trap; they're not "fetus skulls", they're "BABY skulls".

Well, a fetus is an unborn baby. Just because the Left has dehumanized the term doesn’t mean we can’t use it.

Wendy Davis is just the second coming of Ilsa Koch.

Looking at her eyes you see nothing but cold hatred. A monster indifferent to life or suffering.
