“Kill ’em.” Houston GOP powerbroker Steve Hotze left Greg Abbott a voicemail requesting National Guard “shoot to kill” rioters

Westlake Legal Group B-VQpxEZWm6CT4isIcTcwFYG-F1BfwWwNS6j0fXETWI "Kill 'em." Houston GOP powerbroker Steve Hotze left Greg Abbott a voicemail requesting National Guard "shoot to kill" rioters r/politics

If you want a caricature of a grumpy old Texas evangelical Republican, Steve Hotze is your guy. Just from this article alone:

He is a fierce opponent of same-sex marriage and was a key figure in the 2015 defeat of Houston’s nondiscrimination ordinance — and then in the unsuccessful push for the 2017 “bathroom bill” in the Texas Legislature.

Hotze sued Abbott over his stay-at-home order in April. In late May, Hotze asked the Texas Supreme Court to strike down the law that gives Abbott broad executive power to respond to disasters.

Earlier this month, Hotze sued over the state’s contact tracing program.

Hotze also sued Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo in late April over her mask order for county residents. Abbott later gutted that order by prohibiting local officials from fining people who do not wear masks.

But there’s plenty more where that came from. Just a simple Google search pulls up a few extra tidbits:

Our friend Steven is the founder of the Hotze Pharmacy, which sells pseudo-scientific vitamins and hormonal compounds

He’s a Christian Dominionist, believing that Christians have a right to establish a biblical driven order to government. A God-king, if you will.

The political action committee he founded and primarily funds – Conservative Republicans of Texas – was labeled a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center

And he was, only three months ago, featured on Fox News promoting colloidal silver as a treatment therapy. The article contains plenty of other greatest hits that I don’t have time or space to detail.

Like I said. Stereotypical asshole Republican. Trump may be the face of the Republican party, but idiots like Hotze have been at its heart for decades.


Editing to add some more background to Hotze’s vitriol and how it could very well tear the entire party down.

Steve Hotze is just one of many angry right wing nut voices gurgling up from the fringes of the Texas GOP. In fact, COVID-19 has exposed a very large rift between the two GOP wings – the business class who back Gov. Greg Abbott, and the nutjobs like Steve Hotze, Lt. Gov Dan Patrick, Empower Texans PAC and the Christian Dominionists who back said nutjobs.

The evangelicals have never much liked Greg Abbott. When their power hit their nadir in the 2017 state legislative session, Abbott and his allies in the TX House managed to kill or significantly water down efforts to pass a bathroom bill, religious freedom (to discriminate) laws, and constitutional open carry laws.

The far right was furious, and they spent millions to primary a dozen Abbott and business class-backed Republicans in 2018. Many failed in their primaries and others who succeeded lost to Democrats. An under-appreciated success of the 2018 Beto Senate campaign was the washout we saw in the state legislature – 14 Republicans lost their seats.

Abbott & Co. basically ignored the evangelicals after 2019 and pushed some additional fringe legislators to resign lest their seats flip blue in 2020.

But since COVID, the far right has pounced with rabid fury on Gov Abbott’s mismanagement, evidenced by Steve Hotze’s suits, Dan Patrick’s endless ‘die for the economy’ hot takes, and the Reopen Texas rallies attended by the state’s most prominent conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers.

All of this will come to a head in two weeks in, with tragic irony, Houston. The election for state GOP chair will have massive implications for the party’s direction. The Abbott/business class wing controls the party through James Dickey, the current chair. But he faces a serious challenge from former FL Congressman Allen Westyes, really, THAT Allen West – who has been working in TX under Dan Patrick’s direction since being out of public office. West has been given a LOT of money from Dick Uihlein and has crisscrossed the state consolidating the crazy wing’s endorsements.

If Allen West wins the TX GOP chair race, the Steve Hotze’s of the TX GOP will have what they’ve never had before – control of the state party, the entity that raises money, manages donor relationships, crafts election strategies, and recruits candidates to execute the strategies. The party will be in the complete hands of the conspiracy theorists, QAnon believers, Christian Dominionists, bigots and pseudoscientists. And the business class that culled those nutjobs’ support for their own interests will be oh-so-ironically thrown on their asses, lustfully cast aside by the very repulsive Frankenstein that they spent millions of dollars and dozens of election cycles crafting.

So suffice it to say, as a Texas Democrat, Allen West is my favorite candidate running for office this summer.


Second edit to say Thank You for the gildings, but those gifts would be much more appreciated by the dozens of Democratic State House candidates running to take down the worst members of the GOP legislature:

Sharon Hirsch

Joanna Cattanach

Brandy Chambers

Tom Adair or Lorenzo Sanchez (they’re in a runoff for HD-67).

Jeff Whitfield

Lydia Bean

Alisa Simmons

Joe Drago

Elizabeth Beck

Ann Johnson

Akilah Bacy
