Refusing to accept the will of the majority of Americans, one high ranking Texas Republican calls non-whites "racists", while also calling for an "amicable divorce" from the United States.
Peter Morrison, treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party, wrote a column for the Texas Conservative News newsletter in which he called Obama supporters “idiots” and "maggots". He also claimed that the minority groups who heavily supported the President were "simply racist". He went on to specifically point a finger at Asian Americans, saying they earn more money and pay more taxes than white Americans and should therefore be Republicans. Morrison also said that Romney was correct when he said 47 percent of Americans would vote against him because of "government dependency".
Morrison even criticizes members of the Republican Party on his Peter Morrison Report website, asking if others are tired of "so-called 'conservatives' selling out."
When talking about the 51 percent of people who voted for President Obama, Morrison distances himself from his fellow American's, saying "they" re-elected him, he is "their" President, and that the United States is now "their" country.
Morrison goes on to remind readers that Texas was once its own country, saying"many Texans already think in nationalist terms about their state. Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years."
The Star-Telegram contacted Kent Batman, chairman of the Hardin County Republican Party, about Morrison's comments. Batman responded by saying:
"I guess I need to start taking a look at his newsletters. People around here are asking why Texas is so different from the rest of the country, why we see things so differently. But I don't think a lot of people here are saying we ought to leave the Union."
