Dave Cortez, the Central Texas organizer for the Texas Sierra Club, is openly supporting spitting on his opposition as a form of protest. In a recent Facebook post, Cortez admitted to using the unsavory tactic of protest in past, stating that he and friends spat on Karl Rove’s face at an event in El Paso:
“my friends and i spat at karl roves face once at a brilliantly executed surprise direct action in el paso where #beto o’rourke’s billionaire father in law (william sanders of the paso del norte group) was a co-host for a fundraiser for senator john cornyn and current republican el paso mayor dweedle dee margo.”
This is not the first time that Cortez supported disgusting and disturbing tactics of protest, having called for violence last year. In addition to his leadership role with the Texas Sierra Club, Cortez is an admitted member of the extremist group Antifa, which has been under investigation by the FBI since early 2016 for domestic terrorist activities.
