C.J. Grisham, leader of Open Carry Texas, a misogynist with an arrest record, has been deemed as a finalist by The Dallas Morning News for their “Texan of the Year.”

Mr. Grisham has an arrest record and a history of using misogynistic language against women working to reduce gun violence. For example, he has referred to Moms Demand Action members as “thugs with jugs.”

Grisham has been outspoken in his disdain for law enforcement in the state, although lately, he’s feigning to have good relations with the police department even though he has mocked them on more than one occasion.

Let’s look at that.

Mr. Grisham reenacted his version of his arrest with him playing the role of police officer and his wife playing C.J. Or something. At any rate, this is the image Grisham posted for Halloween.

[su_center_ad]Imagine if Bill de Blasio posted that image.

This is Mr. Grisham menacing shoppers at Houston’s Galleria with an openly carried plastic gun in order to draw attention to himself on the day he was a featured speaker at local meeting of the John Birch Society. (By the way, when it was called to Grisham’s attention that I wrote in a post that he was a speaker for the John Birch Society, he called me “the biggest liar on the Internet” until I tweeted an image of him — wait for it — speaking at a JBS meeting. He suddenly went quiet.

Grisham thinks former Mayor Michael Bloomberg is literally Hitler. He replaced Bloomberg’s picture with Hitler’s image, because Godwin.


This is Grisham looking like a totally responsible gun owner.

Ah yes, here’s another fine moment in Grisham’s life. As it happens, Ms. Watts’ use of an image of Kory Watkins from the group Open Carry Tarrant County as a warning was prophetic. A member of Kory’s group was recently arrested in the shooting death of her husband and stepdaughter.

In this tweet Grisham makes reference to the event last November in Arlington, Texas in which armed members of his group gathered in parking lot outside of a Moms Demand Action meeting to menace the women and customers inside.

His remarks were followed by a link to one of the many national news stories about his group’s behavior.

The following is a tweet and a Facebook post referring to the article published in Newsweek where he refers to members of the gun violence prevention group as “Thugs with Jugs”:

Grisham thinks Moms Demand Action members should be arrested. Can you say FEMA camps?

An article from Mother Jones outlines Mr. Grisham’s threatening behavior towards women.

Here is Open Carry Texas spreading the holiday spirit.

Yet, the Dallas Morning News is considering C.J. Grisham for “Texan Of the Year.” Β It makes one wonder what sort of choices they had to begin with. Grisham is an Open Carry extremist, a featured speaker for the John Birch Society and a noted misogynist. Is that the best they can do? Are there no other Texans more deserving of the title? That’s it?

Big thanks to my pal out there for collecting the images and links.

All images were obtained on social media thereby making them fair use.Β [su_csky_ad]

    Thanks Texas for taking the heat of Florida by becoming “The Dumbest State In The Nation”.

    • Tom December 22nd, 2014 at 8:01 pm

      I live in Florida and we are constantly in competition. We’ll try hard to outdo this dick soon!

    How embarrassing, I hang my head in shame.

    • tiredoftea December 22nd, 2014 at 2:56 pm

      As tough as this is, we are not blaming you!

      • neworleans878 December 22nd, 2014 at 3:06 pm

        Speak for yourself, tired. If it’s not Obama’s fault, then it’s mea’s! πŸ™‚

        • tiredoftea December 22nd, 2014 at 3:11 pm

          OK! I was going to blame Sharpton and Jackson before mea, but I can go along with you!

        • Anomaly 100 December 22nd, 2014 at 3:18 pm

          I totally blame Mark.

          • Carla Akins December 22nd, 2014 at 3:44 pm

            I thought it was always RJ’s fault?

          • Anomaly 100 December 22nd, 2014 at 3:56 pm

            It depends on my mood really.

    • Obewon December 22nd, 2014 at 8:51 pm

      There there Buckaroo. Y’all took one for the team today!

  3. tiredoftea December 22nd, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    Just what we expect from a state that pretends it’s all white, all “christian” all the time.

  4. Tommy6860 December 22nd, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    Well considering how badly Wendy Davis lost the election for Texas governor, by over 1 million votes, this is testament to the right wing craziness of that state. To your question whether Texas can do better than this asshole, the election says hell goddam no!

    • tracey marie December 22nd, 2014 at 3:11 pm

      The “award” is for a Texan who is either good or bad….he is not on the good side

  5. StoneyCurtisll December 22nd, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Maybe they need to make an action figure in his likeness…
    Alabama Man already has one..

  6. Dcbos December 22nd, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    This is a picture of todays Texas conservative; not one sensible bone in his body.

  7. Bunya December 22nd, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    I guess in Texas, a real man’s man is a gun totin’, overweight misogynists going through a mid-life crisis.

  8. arc99 December 22nd, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    A d*ck with no brains as Texan of the year?

    What in the name of LBJ and Anne Richards has been put into the drinking water in that state?

  9. allison1050 December 22nd, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    I just wonder why no reporter has asked the Dallas Morning News what criteria was for the selection process…maybe a strange sense of humor?

  10. 2A_Advocate December 22nd, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    LOL. This article is … LOL … I can’t stop. You folks definitely have your own twist on things. This is #liberallogic at its best. LOL

    • allison1050 December 22nd, 2014 at 8:27 pm

      Did you have any thoughts about the subject…which is the Dallas Morning News selecting Grisham as Texan of the Year? Maybe just visiting this site?

    • Obewon December 22nd, 2014 at 8:49 pm

      Open Carry Teabaggers bestow honorary membershit to Lee Harvey Oswald.

      • 2A_Advocate December 30th, 2014 at 7:01 pm

        I’ve got a tea bag for ya. It’s hanging over your chin.LOL

        • Obewon December 31st, 2014 at 7:46 am

          Good projecting.

    • Anomaly 100 December 22nd, 2014 at 10:31 pm

      Hey Chuckles, why not show the rest of us which part isn’t factual, mmkay?

      • tracey marie December 22nd, 2014 at 11:02 pm

        seems they ran away after a troll

        • Anomaly 100 December 22nd, 2014 at 11:14 pm

          The post is almost entirely made of screenshots and C.J. Grisham’s own words. OMG, this troll is so stupid it hurts.

          • tracey marie December 22nd, 2014 at 11:17 pm

            i trolled them with disqus…i am so ashamed /s

    • Kenneth James Abbott December 22nd, 2014 at 10:53 pm

      I like articles like this.

      When I’m feeling down, it helps to be reminded that our opponents are utterly delusional.

      • tracey marie December 22nd, 2014 at 10:56 pm

        why do you think of people here as opponents, are you looking for a fight?

        • Kenneth James Abbott December 24th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

          Partly because these people are pretty obviously filled with a deranged hatred for myself.

          and partly because I stand for freedom–and that guarantees that people such as “anomaly100” will be my opponents.

          • tracey marie December 24th, 2014 at 12:39 pm

            “filled with deranged hatred for myself” I think your fraudian slip just highlighted the real issue.

          • Kenneth James Abbott December 25th, 2014 at 8:13 am

            ~I~ think if you were able to respond to what I said, you wouldn’t need to pretend I said something different.

    • paul fredine December 23rd, 2014 at 2:10 pm

      c.j. that you???

      • Kimberly B Stone December 24th, 2014 at 6:08 pm

        Either CJ or Kory. Oh wait, CJ and Kory broke up. They had a dick measuring contest and they both lost and then had to go cry and buy another gun or 6.

  11. annaaurora December 23rd, 2014 at 7:39 am

    AH my favorite Texan CJ Grisham the man on a box. Goddamn you have zero shame nor do your kin. Someday, someday you’re really going to fuck up and I for one cannot wait. Let us hope you or you’re child gets that Christmas gun they’ve always wanted… maybe you or he will shoot their eye out?

  12. Mainah December 23rd, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    I’m not understanding his logic. His group “stood guard”, which I’m guessing means armed, at a MDA meeting and that makes them not bullies? Why would someone need to stand guard? Are the Mom’s baking deadly cookies? NO! I know! It’s the deadly care and concern for fellow human beings who just want to buy their food or eat in a restaurant without fear that someone will flip their noodle while armed! DAMN THEM!
    I would also like to know, just for shits and giggles, why someone not wanting guns in a food store equates someone who is against owning firearms? Or that the Second Amendment states clearly “well regulated” … and some other crap about Militias protecting a free state and stuff. πŸ˜‰

  13. Kimberly B Stone December 24th, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    Charles Harrelson was unavailable for Texan of the Year, so they had to default to CJ.
