You are probably unaware of the political positions of Chris Wallace, president of the Texas Association of Businesses (TAB).
I am not going to tell you that Chris Wallace is a liberal, pro-socialist and pro-homosexual Democrat. You can decide that for yourself when you look at the facts.
Chris Wallace’s political allegiances and philosophy are demonstrated by his voting record and by his political contributions to the Texas Democrat Party, to numerous Democrat candidates and to the No Nonsense in November PAC that opposed the Texas Constitution Marriage Amendment in 2005.
Wallace has made contributions to the Texas Democrat Party, Al Gore against George Bush in 2004, Obama for America in 2008, Bill White for Governor against Gov. Abbott in 2009 and 2010, Wendy Davis against Gov. Abbott in 2014, Leticia van de Putte against Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in 2014, and four separate contributions to the Human Rights Commission PAC in 2016. The Human Rights Commission PAC describes itself as the “largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization.” The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) PAC supports candidates who “have a solid history of support for lesbian and gay equality” (www.hrc.org). In 2016, the HRC opposed Donald Trump, while supporting Hillary Clinton. Wallace financially supports this homosexual front group.
Wallace has voted numerous times in the Democrat Primary, and yet he has been hired as the spokesman for conservative Texas businessmen.
An individual’s voting record and political contributions tell you everything about his political allegiances and philosophy.
The TAB claims to represent over 4000 small and mid-sized businessmen’s companies. Don’t you think that most of these Texas business owners support traditional Christian family values, Biblical marriage between a man and a woman, free enterprise capitalism, and oppose men being allowed to enter their wives’ and daughters’ bathrooms, showers and locker rooms? Wallace has demonstrated through his political contributions that he opposes these values. How can he be a spokesman for conservative businessmen?
Chris Wallace’s appointment as President of TAB seems to indicate that the TAB Board of Directors has been coopted by liberals who oppose social conservative values. The members of the TAB Board are Gary Gibson, A.J. Rodriguez, Bob Cartwright, Dennis Knautz, Sara Tays, Gary Cook, Kelly Hall and Chris Wallace. Surely they vetted Chris Wallace before they elected him President of TAB. If they did, then what does that tell you about their political philosophy? If they didn’t, then what does that tell you about their competency?
During the 2015 Texas Legislative Session, the TAB supported the homosexual political movement in its opposition to legislation that protected Religious Freedom Legislation for Christian Pastors, which passed, and in its opposition to traditional marriage legislation.
Now Chris Wallace and the TAB oppose SB 6, The Women’s Privacy Act, sponsored by Sen. Lois Kolkhorst and fiercely supported by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. SB 6 has a simple message, “No men in women’s bathrooms, showers or locker rooms.”
It’s just incredible that Chris Wallace and the TAB oppose SB 6. On its website, the TAB claims to “act in support of innovative ideas and balanced solutions that will help our state thrive.” Is the idea that men and boys should be able to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms the TAB’s concept of “innovative ideas and balanced solutions that will help our state thrive.”
Chris Wallace and the TAB leadership are tied at the hip to the homosexual political movement in its opposition to SB 6, specifically to Equality Texas, which “works to secure full quality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Texans through political action.” Wallace and the TAB have exploited and abused the trust of the overwhelming number of its conservative business members.
You can’t make this up.
Opposing SB 6, Wallace and the TAB are asserting that if we protect women’s privacy it will hurt business in Texas. Give me a break! This means that Wallace and the TAB are willing to sacrifice our wives’ and daughters’ safety from perverts at the sacred alter of the almighty dollar.
Really? Do you think that God is going to prosper Texas when we refuse to protect our wives and daughters? I don’t think so.
TAB members can demonstrate their opposition to Chris Wallace and the TAB Board by resigning from the TAB by sending their resignation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chris Wallace needs to be freed up to find his future in some liberal, socialist, pro-homosexual Democrat organization like Equality Texas, the Humans’ Right Commission, Acorn, Battleground Texas, the ACLU or the Texas Democrat Party.
One bad apple spoils the whole bunch. Its high time for the members of the TAB to drain the swamp, recapture and clean up the TAB, ridding itself of Chris Wallace and the liberal RINO fat cats who control it, and make it conservative again.
