Republicans just lost their minds over Willie Nelson endorsing Beto O’Rourke over Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz (R-TX), the craven senator who was utterly emasculated by Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries only to end up endorsing him, could have another embarrassing political career downturn waiting for him right around the corner.


Democrat Beto O’Rourke is now within striking distance of seizing Cruz’s Senate seat this November, with polls showing them just a few short percentage points apart. O’Rourke has already proven himself to be a courageous, honest advocate for the people of Texas and will surely serve them with honor if he wins the election.

O’Rourke is the Senator Texans deserve, and now he’s received a flattering endorsement: country music legend Willie Nelson. KTRK-TV reports that Nelson will be headlining an O’Rourke rally in Austin, Texas and some of his Republican fans are furious.

As is so common with the modern GOP, maybe of its frothing acolytes are willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces.

Rather than accept that a musician they like has different political views than them, they’re racing to disown him with the same fervor that spurred conservatives to burn their Nike gear in protest of the Colin Kaepernick ad. It’s idiotic outrage and spite, which increasingly seems to be the only animating force at the heart of modern American conservatism.

Some conservatives chose to post angrily on Nelson’s Facebook page after whoever runs it shared something related to his performance at the O’Rourke rally.

Nelson should be commended for standing up to Cruz and his regressive agenda. His music will endure this current wave of petty Republican outrage, and he will emerge on the right side of history.
