Activist Diana Martinez Alexander did not leave it up to either the mainstream media or the Harris County judge Lina Hidalgo to define her unqualified opponent, Alexandra Mealer.
Activist Diana Martinez Alexander informs.
We depend on objective media to keep voters informed. Too often, the press spits out the candidate-provided information.
One of the most powerful and important political and functional jobs in Harris County, Texas, is County Judge. Currently, the job is held by Lina Hidalgo, a young, extremely intelligent Latina, a naturalized immigrant from Colombia.
Lina Hidalgo outright won a race that some think should have been ordained to others. More importantly, she did the job virtually flawlessly and with a level of transparency that the County Court had never seen. These types of jobs are generally relegated to men in the good-old-boy network or women with honorary membership. Lina is not, and for that, she does not only have to watch her Right/MAGA flank but her neoliberal Left.
Lina Hidalgo will be reelected because the MAGA/Right and the neoliberal left are starting to lose their grip. Why? There is much more than the corporate mainstream media informing constituents. Activists have both voice and access to independent media whether are not the mainstream chooses to be responsible, truthfully, and unbiased.
And that is where the likes of Diana Martinez Alexander are so important. Diana decided to break the facade of the woman the Right Wing MAGA movement chose to malign and oust Lina Hidalgo. And what she found makes Lina Hidalgo’s opponent, Alexandra Mealer, unfit to serve most of the people in Haris County. Diana wrote the following in the truthtelling news site Texas Signal in an article titled “OP-ED: ALEXANDRA MEALER’S GANG OF LIARS, BIGOTS, AND MAGA EXTREMISTS“
Harris County GOP candidate Alexandra Mealer claims to be a moderate. On national issues such as abortion, she not only avoids the tough questions, but often dodges discussing the issue entirely. In conservative spaces both online and in-person, she uses rightwing talking points, but in more mainstream circles, those talking points are suspiciously absent from her speech. If you look at her profile on the extreme rightwing social media network Gettr, you will see a picture of her holding a firearm and claiming to be a “liberty-minded conservative,” two distinctions from her Twitter profile, where she leaves out any partisan language and uses a more traditional picture. She also throws out populist claims in an attempt to appear moderate, going so far as to (laughably) imply that she believes in taking on gun violence even while denouncing any studies of gun violence as a “waste of resources” and saying nothing about the shooting in Uvalde.
Please listen to the entire interview. More importantly, read Diana’s article.
