This press conference was a stunt. Thoughts and prayers are performative. What Beto did here was just the right damn thing to do.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Beto should be invited to join President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden when they come to Texas

Excellent photo! I'm assuming that a freelancer can have this on the front page of every newspaper in Texas. Hope I'm right. Every newspaper in the US and in a history book. Amazing work, Veronica.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Damn. That is an amazing shot. Exemplifies Beto’s incredible courage & instinct to lead. …And those pointing pricks’ salute sure looks familiar.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Veronica thank you for this image..The moment captured and story told..is breathtaking..thank you.
One person standing up, imagine what 100 or 1000 or even 10,000 people doing this could accomplish. Imagine how many innocent lives could be saved. Great photo from @veronicagcarde1, please credit her if you see this photo without one.
In reply to @pithywidow
At least preserve her crop of it.
Photog @veronicagcarde1 captured the entire history of the gun control “debate” in a single frame. Con safos, Vero.
This photograph encapsulates what we're up against. Powers that be telling us we can't do something meanwhile their inaction is leading to kids being murdered.

& by powers that be I mean Abbott, Patrick, Phelan, Paxton, and all the Police that protect them but not our kids.

Excellent photo. Mad skills. This on will be timeless Nice job @veronicagcarde1
Wowww. Powerful image!
In reply to @reporterdriver
is a coward! He refuses to fight for the people of his state. He is afraid the NRA will stop bankrolling him. Beto is a fighter for the people of the state. We all need common sense gun laws and a woman has a right to healthcare. #GOPGunsOverPeople #VoteThemAllOut
In reply to @reporterdriver
Perfect capture of Beto, alone, standing up to the militia Gov Abbott need's to make him feel safe in public. Pitiful!!
All these politicians are yahoos and I don’t give a crap what side of aisle you’re on…but this here is a photo that will be looked back on.

Says a lot about the state of Texas right now.

You are a post-Baroque artist. Caravaggio would have been proud. pic.twitter.com/fs7fidToZQ
Beto said what needed to be said. Greg (AND SO MANY OTHERS) need to listen and act.
Beto tosses the money changers out of the temple of democracy.
In reply to @reporterdriver
The most iconic image I’ve seen in years.
Four armed officers preventing a concerned citizen from asking questions. If this was not Beto we would never hear about it. Great shot.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Bravissima!!! 🎉💞🎉💞 I can't stop staring at this photo. Real. Raw. Powerful. Truth. Courage. Thank you.
#GOPGunsOverPeople don’t like to be questioned about their gun running. #BetoIsAHero #GOPDeathCult
Don’t this just say it all
I knew this shot reminded me of something. pic.twitter.com/OQxw73rozY

Sublime photojournalism.
Time for the Democratic Party to rally behind @BetoORourke and make him a superstar. We need someone young and passionate to engage the youth in politics.
Brilliant photo by Veronica Cardenas
A phenomenal photo
In reply to @veronicagcarde1
@veronicagcarde1 just won this year’s Pulitzer Prize for photojournalism. Beto standing calm. Cruz next to the pistol. Incredible.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Get this woman a Pulitzer Prize right fucking now!
In reply to @veronicagcarde1
@veronicagcarde1 captures a moment that will reverberate in history
THIS is the "protester" of whom they spoke.
In reply to @reporterdriver
The cowardice of these Texas Republicans.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Millionaire shows truth to power?
.@DrGJackBrown Have you seen this incredible photo? I’d love to see your analysis!
In reply to @reporterdriver
This picture is Pulitzer worthy.
NOT "truth to power." Beto interrupted the old White Power boy's scripted NRA "speech." They had NO answer except to curse and yell instead of any proof of actual empathy for the dead kids. They refused to talk about guns, just fake "thoughts and prayers" we are all so sick of.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Beto stands in Truth. The lizard old white guys, had nothing to say that wasn't scripted by the NRA. Nice demonstration of how hateful their Cult is, yelling and swearing, because they have nothing. Abbott's speech was total BS, written on an NRA napkin in blood.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Straight up texas nazis.
In reply to @reporterdriver
Powerful, kudos to the photographer
What does truth to power mean?

Is the guy staring down Beto the same guy in the Uvalde SWAT photo? pic.twitter.com/jMBVhUv4qQ
In reply to @reporterdriver
Raise your hand if you're a coward with a gun ordering the next governor of Texas out of a public hearing/conference. #TexasIsCompromised
In reply to @reporterdriver
Truth to Power or Truth to Cowards? @BetoORourke has entered the chat and he is the Leader we need! #EnoughIsEnough
Spread this photo far & wide.
Am I the only one who thought of this photo? It made me think, what would MLK be thinking today.

It shows Abbott and Cruz hiding behind the wall supporters 😡

This photo says it all
