Texas DPS is not just confiscating Tampons folks! The Texas department of Public Safety (DPS) has released a statement that says Jars or Urine, Feces and paint are among the items being confiscated at the Texas Capital. Another source stated bricks were confiscated from women trying to protest at the Texas Capital
Is this what Democracy looks like? Does ‘Stand With Wendy’ mean throwing Urine and feces on legislators while debating a bill that would restrict abortions past 20 weeks?
This is not about #Tampongate as the left would have you believe.
AUSTIN, TEXAS (DPS) – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today received information that individuals planned to use a variety of items or props to disrupt legislative proceedings at the Texas Capitol.
Therefore for safety purposes, DPS recommended to the State Preservation Board that all bags be inspected prior to allowing individuals to enter the Senate gallery, which the State Preservation Board authorized.
During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.
In the interest of the safety and security of Texas legislators and the general public, these inspections will continue until the conclusion of Senate business.
