Texas Republican Judge Switches Party, Denouncing GOP as Party of Bigots and Hate-Mon

Texas Republican Judge Switches Party, Denouncing GOP as Party of Bigots and Hate-Mongers

GOP now known for "pettiness and bigotry."

October 21, 2013 | A Republican Judge from San Antonio, Texas, has announced he is quitting the GOP and will seek re-election as a Democrat, saying that he can no longer be part of political party whose identity is based on hate, bigotry and destroying people’s lives.

Bexar County Judge Carlo R. Key made his announcement in a YouTube campaign video, where the image shifts between the judge sitting at his bench and screenshots of Republicans—from Sen. Ted Cruz to state politicians—boosting their agenda or career by harming others.

Key’s words speak for themselves. Here’s a transcript, where he ends by urging others who share his moderate temperament and respectful demeanor to join him.

I have tried to live a life of principles. These principles have been shaped by my family, my community and my country. In fact, it is my dedication to these principles which has lead me to the law in the first place and has guided me to becoming a judge. These values are simple. I believe that justice demands fairness. It demands careful and intelligent probing of evidence. And above all else, justice can only be served without prejudice toward race, color, creed or whom you choose to love.

These principles have served as the bedrock upon which my rulings have been made. They are also my driving force. That is why I can no longer be a member of the Republican Party. For too long, the Republican Party has been at war with itself. Rational Republican beliefs have given way to character assassination. Pragmatism and principle have been overtaken by pettiness and bigotry. Make no mistake. I have not left the Republican Party. It left me.

I cannot tolerate a political party that demeans Texans based on their sexual orientation, the color of their skin or their economic status. I will not be a member of a party in which hate speech elevates candidates for higher office rather than disqualifying them. I cannot place my name on the ballot for a political party that is proud to destroy the lives of 100s of 1000s of federal workers over the vain attempt to repeal a law that will provide health care to millions of people throughout our country.

That is why I am announcing that I am now running for re-election as a Democratic candidate for County Court of Law 11 in the 2014 elections. My principles have led me to the Democratic Party. I can only hope that more people of principle will follow me. If you believe these values are your values, then I respectfully ask you to join me and let’s work together to keep dignity, fairness and respect for rule of law in our county courts.

Texas Democrats welcomed the judge's decision but said they were not surprised by it.

“I'm not surprised,” said Matt Angle, director of the Lone Star Project. “Republican state leaders in Texas have moved so far out of the mainstream. They have become so divisive that fair-minded Texans are turning away. Judge Key is a prominent and respected public official, so his actions appropriately draw attention, but every day I hear from people who formerly supported Republican candidates, but now won’t do it.”

Well the switching not so much but the reason is sort of damning.

So he's pro gay, infers the GOP s racist, supports Federal government workers, and likes Obamacare. Is that what passes for "Republican" these days?

I think both parties are complete and utter shit. That said, I respect anyone who is willing to stand up and fight even when it means they may be committing political suicide. And I give Judge Key the benefit of the doubt that this is the reason he is doing this. For now...

Not at all. If you watch the video, he does a very good job describing what passes as Republican these days. In one sense I absolutely agree with him. I didn't leave the Republican party, it left me.

But again: being pro-gay, inferring "racism" against fellow voters, siding with government workers and supporting Obamacare is Republican?



Face it: dude was never a Republican to begin with if he really believed all that nonsense.

He's a RINO. If he was a REAL Republican, he'd get to work deporting all the Gay Muslim Mexicans in the Emergency Room with no health insurance.


Heh heh....

He's not even that. A RINO at least believes some things the GOP does. Even RINOs don't support Obamacare.
