Video By Mothers Against Greg Abbott Goes Viral

A video made by Mothers Against Greg Abbott (a whole other MAGA) has gone viral and has generated three million views on the group’s Twitter page alone. 

The political action committee posted the video entitled “Nothing Changes” on their website last week. “They say nothing changes in Texas politics, until it does,” says a woman pushing a child on a swing in the opening scene. 

The video then sequences through a progression of mothers cataloging a litany of complaints regarding Governor Abbott’s leadership and priorities. 

“Nothing changes…till the Texas power grid failed and our families froze without water and electricity.” 

“Until white Texas politicians removed our history from the classroom.”

“Till they made it legal to buy a gun without a permit and openly carry it.”

“Till Texas politicians put a $10,000 bounty on anyone who helped a woman get an abortion.”

“Till we were called ‘child abusers’ for loving and supporting our transgender children.”

“We want real change for Texas. Now.”

The video closes with the group’s logo and a chorus of women intoning, “we are Mothers Against Greg Abbott.”

Writer, editor, photographer and editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson has joined the Reform Austin newsroom, where he will employ the artistic skill and political insights that earned a Pulitzer Prize to drive coverage of Texas government. As managing editor, Anderson is responsible for guiding Reform Austin’s efforts to give readers the unfiltered facts they need to hold Texas leaders accountable. Anderson’s original cartoons will be a regular feature on RA News. “Reform Austin readers understand the consequences of electing politicians who use ideological agendas to divide us, when they should be doing the hard work necessary to make our state government work for everyone,” Anderson said. “As a veteran journalist, I’m excited about Reform Austin’s potential to re-focus conversations on the issues that matter to common-sense Texans – like protecting our neighborhoods from increasingly common disasters, healthcare, just to name a few.” Anderson worked for the Houston Chronicle, the largest newspaper in Texas, from 2006 until 2017. In addition to the Pulitzer, Anderson earned the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi Award. He’s also a two-time winner of Columbia College’s Fischetti Award, and the National Press Foundation’s Berryman Award. Anderson’s cartoons have been published in Newsweek, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and other papers. In 2005, Anderson won the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning while working for the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky. The judges complimented his “unusual graphic style that produced extraordinarily thoughtful and powerful messages.”
