Last month, Conservative domestic figure Steve Hotze called Republican Texas Governor Gregg Abbott to make certain a National Guard was accessible to “restore order.”

“I wish we to give a summary to a governor,” Hotze told Abbott’s arch of staff, Luis Saenz, in a voicemail. “I wish to make certain that he has a National Guard down here and they have a sequence to fire to kill if any of these son-of-a-bitch people start rioting like they have in Dallas, start ripping down businesses — fire to kill a son of a bitches. That’s a usually approach we revive order. Kill ‘em. Thank you.”

There’s no word on either or not Saenz responded to a voicemail.

On Saturday, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, called it “absolutely outrageous and reprehensible” on Twitter.

“It’s not about competition though has all to do with a destiny of America—the freest and many on-going nation in a world. It’s about those who bake homes and businesses, including those owned by African-Americans and conflict law enforcement. Enough is enough,” pronounced Hotze.
