Conservative Texas Republicans Align with Zionism

Paul Craig Roberts

The conservative Republican Governor of Texas has equated student protests of Israel’s slaughter and genocide of the Palestinian to anti-semitism:

On Wednesday afternoon, Gov. Greg Abbott vowed that the arrests of protesting students would continue until the crowd dispersed. “These protesters belong in jail. Antisemitism will not be tolerated in Texas. Period. Students joining in hate-filled, antisemitic protests at any public college or university in Texas should be expelled,” said Abbott.

From the conservative Republican governor’s standpoint, it is OK for Israel to slaughter the Palestinians but not OK for Texas university students to protest the slaughter. That a governor can say this with a straight face demonstrates the power of the Israel Lobby.

Another conservative Texas Republican, State Sen. Brandon Creighton, equates protests against the slaughter of Palestinians with violence against Jews:

“And let’s not forget what Israel is fighting against —Hamas, a known terrorist organization, carried out the Oct. 7th attack—the worst attack on Jewish people since the Holocaust. This isn’t about politics; it’s about recognizing and condemning terrorism and violence,” Creighton added.

Apparently, Creighton is unaware that Israel has been committing violence and terrorism against Palestinians continually since 1947. That is why most Palestinians live in refugee camps outside of their country.

With Texas Republicans thoroughly brainwashed and under the thumb of Israel, Texas Scorecard reports that a group of Democrat lawmakers in the Texas House are calling on President Joe Biden to reassess financial aid to Israel in light of the “ongoing assault on civilians in Gaza by the Netanyahu government.”

I hate it when Democrats make more sense than Republicans.
