#TXSEN: Dimwitted National Media unaware Texas Democrats HAVE tried to ban BBQ

"The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbor,
But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered."
Proverbs 11:9

Apparently Ted Cruz told a joke a few days ago:

Cue national media outrage!

Esquire Magazine:

[Note: You can view the full extent of the absurdity here.]

Here's the thing (that anyone who actually lives in Texas already knows):  The Democrats already have tried to ban BBQ.  Specifically, in Austin.  In 2015:
Austin barbecue lovers, new city rules could force changes to the cooking process. Smoke coming from the pits has some residents fired up. Right now, the city does not have any regulations that state how much smoke can be emitted from restaurants and mobile food venders. And because food trailer parks are moving next to neighborhoods, some residents have complained to their city council members.

Pio Renteria, who represents District 3 in East Austin, is now spearheading an amendment to the city code to require any restaurant or food truck that burns wood or charcoal, located within 100 feet of residential properties, to find a way to mitigate the smoke. He is suggesting that businesses either buy expensive smoke scrubbers or use gas-operated pits with wood chips. Renteria said other states use that method to limit the smoke.
The effort ultimately collapsed, but they still tried to do it.

[Fun Fact: Bobby Francis has held campaign events with one of the co-sponsors of that resolution.]

Watch it for yourself:

Bottom Line: The national media may not like it but, based on their record in Austin, banning BBQ is a realistic possibility should the Texas Democrats ever come to power....
