Words matter, words have weight, especially when coming from on high. It deeply saddens me that this racist act of domestic terrorism was perpetrated by a young 20 something year old.
We think of the youth in the US as being progressive, but young people are also malleable. For a 21 year old his whole adult life has been spent under the leadership of one US President, one Governor and one alt Governor.
That Lt Governor responder to this act of domestic terrorist by telling “Antifa” to scratch Texas off its map. As if anyone who wishes to protest to slaughtering, this act of terrorism, this hate crime is “Antifa”?
Antifascist used to be a given in this country, not a slur. To use any word describing a person who is not down with white supremacy groups as a slur is absurd, but especially at a time like this.
Dan Patrick- If you want a protest, you’ve got one, right on your doorsteps of the Governor’s Mansion.
Mira your job to stand up and advocate for all Texas citizens, regardless of skin color and you’ve stood down for too long.
