A common reaction from a far leftist when they don’t agree with someone’s political views is to threaten violence. Readers of this site know this, as they say, many such cases.
So when a Texas Young Republican member threatens someone on our side over their political views, it’s quite possibly a sign of where the Young Republicans, as a whole, are headed here in Texas.
Introducing 31 year old Texas Youngish Republican Jelena Petrovic.
In a Slack groupchat for Young Republicans of Texas, Jelena reached out to ask how she should handle disagreeing with a conservative opinion. Then stating that she could barely control her emotions and would rather just punch the individual.
This is typical behavior of the far left and antifa, being unhappy with the political views of people they disagree with, they threaten violence.
We have reason to suspect that Petrovic is referring to Matt Dorsey here. At this time we cannot confirm. (UPDATE: Petrovic has confirmed she was referring to Dorsey when she said she wanted to punch the individual she disagreed with.)
She of course gets Dorsey’s political views wrong anyway and Matt proceeds to clarify and offers to actually discuss the issue with her, you know, like a normal human being and not a leftist violent maniac.
She also endorsed Dorsey’s political opponent for YR Political director. She, like many left-leaning “Republicans”, cites the “big tent” that the G(ay)OP is always talking about.
The whole issue is funny considering Petrovic, despite being 31 years old and in Texas since at least 2004, has never voted before 2020.
The GOP database even has her labeled as a “Weak Democrat”
Editors note: these 30 and pushing 40 year olds in the young Republicans is ridiculous. I remember my dad telling me about how he was president of the YR‘s as a college sophomore. Which would be 20-21 years old. Some people are now pushing 35-40 in these groups, which is frankly a joke..
This is all to say that the writing is on the wall for Young Republicans of Texas. We’ve very much slowly seen the group leaning left, endorsing anti-Christian lifestyles, and promoting degeneracy. We hope they change but we wouldn’t bet on it.
We’ve reached out to Petrovic for comment. We will update the article when we receive a response.
Oh and don’t forget to vote y’all.
UPDATE: We’ve received a response from Petrovic and she’s confirmed she was referring to “a dick name (sic) Matt Dorsey” when she made her threat. She also mentioned she is “no longer associated with TYRs or the Republican Party anymore” and is an “Independent” now. Which really just means a leftist with maybe some nuanced fiscal views.
We at Current Revolt HQ are utterly shocked by this development as nobody could have seen it coming.
