Democrat Rep. Vincente Gonzalez Tells Supporters His Female Opponent ‘Can’t Think Or Speak For Herself’

  • Save

Democrat Rep. Vincente Gonzalez must be getting nervous. At a recent get-out-the-vote event in Harlingen, Texas, he said the quiet part, how he really feels about women, out loud.

Perhaps Gonzalez is nervous because he has seen that recent political analysis has shifted the race for Texas’ 34th Congressional District in favor of rising star Republican Mayra Flores.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Flores stunned the world of politics and media earlier this year when she won a special election in southern Texas.

Democrat Rep. Filemon Vela resigned earlier this spring necessitating the special election.

According to The Texas Tribune, “In a twist, Gonzalez, a three-term congressman, is not the incumbent where he’s running, since he opted to run in a new district after redistricting. That distinction goes to Republican U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores, who won her special election and flipped the district red in June after a tsunami of support from national Republicans hopeful to make South Texas their new stomping grounds. Emboldened by that win, Republicans are relentlessly going after Gonzalez’s verbal gaffes and portraying him as an out-of-touch creature of Washington.”

Out of touch indeed.

At the get-out-the-vote event, Gonzalez said of his female opponent, she, “Can’t think for herself, can’t speak for herself, can’t act for herself, can’t vote for herself.”

When he isn’t paying a blogger to attack Flores, he does the attacking himself.

The Gonzalez campaign even featured an ad that used an edited picture of Flores where dark eyebrows were filled in to make Flores look menacing.

Fox News reports:

Democratic Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, who’s seeking re-election to the House in the elections less than four weeks away, lashed out at Rep. Mayra Flores, his Republican challenger, in the race to represent Texas’ 34th Congressional District, during a speech earlier this week, claiming that she “can’t think for herself, can’t speak for herself, can’t act for herself, can’t vote for herself.”

Gonzalez’s remarks came during a get-out-the-vote rally held at the La Sierra Event Center in Harlingen, Texas, on Wednesday.

“We can’t do this alone,” Gonzalez told his supporters gathered in the room. “We need everyone’s help, we need everyone’s friends, everyone’s family, and everyone’s friends’ and families’ friends and family. That’s the way we’re gonna push back on these outside resources coming here picking a candidate, a hand-picked candidate that can’t think for herself, can’t speak for herself, can’t act for herself, can’t vote for herself.”
