The anti-Hispanic, anti-immigrant manifesto promotes the white nationalist and far-right conspiracy theory called The Great Replacement. The New York Times characterized the manifesto as racially extremist, noting the passage: "Hispanics will take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas, changing policy to better suit their needs. " It states that Hispanics and their intermarriage with whites would cause the loss of purity of race. It criticizes strict gun control laws in Europe, arguing these would make them unable to repel immigrants. It criticizes both the Democratic Party and Republican Party, saying that their politicians are either complacent or involved in the "takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations". However, the manifesto states that "at least with Republicans, the process of mass immigration and citizenship can be greatly reduced. " It warns that "heavy Hispanic population in Texas will make us a Democrat stronghold. " It also states that the Democratic Party's appeal to an increasing number of Hispanics in the country would ultimately ensure Democratic Party dominance in the United States, a notion that has been promoted on right-wing radio shows. According to the document, the attack was meant to provide an incentive for Hispanics to "return to their home countries", thus dissolving "the Hispanic voting bloc" in the United States.
