    I thought at first that this must surely be fake news.
    But then i looked this up,
    https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/anti...texas-policies


    How do you people even manage to keep up the pretence of having freedom of speech?
    They can have freedom of speech. They just won't get any state contracts. Simple enough.

    Cuomo prohibits any state workers on state business going to North Carolina because of the bathroom controversy. People were fine with that. I don't see the difference.

    It's not a left wing conspiracy to remove freedom of speech by outlawing the protest of Israel engineered by the Zionists. It doesn't mark the beginning of the end. This is not white people's Kristallnacht.

    It's a popular state law to deal with a handful of backwards two-teef Texans living in last century. No one is being refused water, as the title implies. It applies only to government contracts, to abide US trade law. Slow the outrage bus and let everyone that's not an antisemite get off.

    Absolutely none of this -- as in, not a single word -- has a THING to do with anything in my post, or any other post of mine, for that matter. Zilch. Nada. I don't know who you're arguing with, but it's not me.

    Your complaint, your victim claim, is BS. It's not "the same thing those libs in CA do to force their gay down our throat". It's a state law regarding government contracts abiding US trade law.

    It's not "divisive", except Nazis from government contract.

    Even if that was what I said, which it isn't, it would still have absolutely nothing to do with "white people's Kristallnacht," "Zionism," nor whatever bizarre hallucination you had which made you think I was complaining about the law, saying that anyone was being "denied water," or that I disagreed with:

    It's a state law regarding government contracts abiding US trade law.
    Like I said, if you want to argue with the voices in your head, that's fine, but you can leave me out of it, because it has nothing to do with me.

    Bye, now.

    Go play the "I'm a victim of liberals" crap elsewhere. This law is about antisemitism in government contracts. It doesn't play favorites. It's not social engineering. This is Texas state legislation, passed easily.

    No localized boycotting of nations in government contracts. Not for Nazis or anyone else.

    And again, most importantly, it isn't about people getting water as the dishonest title suggests. It's not, as the title paints, "criticize Israel and no water for you".

    Now there's that, " let's only put in a half arsed effort" americans are known and loved for. You do know that it is an elected government not a military imposed dictatorship, don't you. They are also free to campaign for a better government.
