Update on Article Rant about Texas Gov. Abbott’s Anti-BDS Law

December 20, 2018

Yes, I know my previous post about signing a loyalty oath to Israel is “just” an oath to not boycott Israel products or support BDS by doing BDS. Further, I have not done BDS–yet. But BDS is not the point. The point is no one has the right to tell me I must buy Israel products or I cannot boycott Israel products or any other products. That’s like telling me I must watch George Clooney movies when I have been boycotting one of Hollywood’s worst hypocrites for over a year now (even though “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” and the Ocean’s series are among my fave movies!). Just as no one has the right to tell me I must watch certain movies, no one has the right to tell me I must buy Israel’s products. As for oaths of any kind, when I sign an oath I believe I must stick to it.

It’s a simple matter of merely signing this unconstitutional oath to keep your job, then saying screw it, I’ll BDS anyway! But that is not me. I do not work that way. Further, many Americans likely would work that way; so, if signing an oath you have no intention of keeping “works” for you, then Who is to say that when you took an oath to uphold Christ as Savior, you’re just whistling dixie? Know what I mean? Will GOD take your oath as a vow of bogus-ness? Or are you simply pulling a gentile version of the Talmudic Kol Nidre?

But while some Americans or Texans will sign the oath anyway, just because, the ACLU is actually doing something about it, on behalf four, not including that teacher, who has had another suit filed through CAIR (the teacher is Palestinian-American). Did governor Abbott actually think this would not happen? Here is the link:

Screw You, Greg Abbott! I Don’t Need Your Permission to Criticize Israel!

December 20, 2018

Another one of my rants, folks.  But when a highly qualified and loved Austin ISD teacher in a state where highly qualified and loved teachers are hard to find  LOSES HER JOB   BECAUSE SHE REFUSES TO SIGN A ‘LOYALTY OATH TO ISRAEL’ (!), this makes me, a retired teacher of secondary mathematics as well as home schooling mother, EXTREMELY PISSED OFF! (Update: Sorry, she worked for Pflugerville ISD, not Austin.)

It’s bad enough this Christian Zionist Shabbos goy signed into law that victims of Hurricane Harvey had to sign a loyalty oath to Israel in order to get funding for restoring homes destroyed by the hurricane. Getting govt. funding to restore a property is a voluntary thing one can sign up for in lieu of having enough flood insurance or getting Federal funding if necessary. It may not seem voluntary, but it is voluntary.

But signing a loyalty oath to a foreign country, let alone one’s own country, is another thing, especially when your livelihood, your need to support and feed a family, a need to have income to pay bills, in all practical purposes, is NOT voluntary. I mean this rant to cover any loyalty oath to any foreign country! ANY! NO ONE, not a privately employed or publically employed person, not any politician or Congress person or Executive Branch or Judicial Branch person, should sign ANY loyalty oath to ANY foreign nation!

It is not only unconstitutional, but ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL! ANTI-BILL OF RIGHTS!

Imagine if we had to swear loyalty to Russia or China or the UK or the EU? What does the governor of Texas think the American Revolution was about? The Bill of Rights and the US Constitution?

As with the saying “Find out whom you are not allowed to criticize to know who owns you,” a saying by a person I cannot remember his name, it is obvious that even folks who couldn’t care less about free speech now realize that now in Texas and several other states it is illegal to criticize Israel! I can criticize Trump and Congress and the FDA and the AFT and DHS and the Border Patrol and whatever other govt. institution, and can burn a flag and refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (and I’m not being all-caps corporate-admiralty nonsense here), but I can’t criticize Israel?

So guess what, Greggie boy–you SLAVE TO ISRAEL! Put me in jail–I dare you–for writing posts, lot of ’em, on here, criticizing Israel, Netanyahu, the Talmud, Christian Zionism, their genocide against Palestinians, Israel’s OWNERSHIP of President Trump, Israel’s OWNERSHIP of the United States, and Israel’s OWNERSHIP BY the Satanic Rothschilds!

Because I am NOT taking a loyalty oath to Israel or any other nation.

And it’s not just about betraying the United States for the sake of another nation. It’s not just about putting people in another nation ahead of your own people.

In fact, because news of this event and others like it are going mainstream to the point where even the New York Times and the Washington Post are denouncing it,  how long will it take to ignite hate and disgust for a group of people associated with this nation…you know, JEWS? Even ADL people are saying these anti-BDS laws just might hurt Jews, and these laws WILL HURT JEWS, especially Jews who still have some sort of religious or tribal connection to Israel, that is, older Jews. As I have stated before based on personal experience, blacks and Jews do not get along, and black hatred of Jews is not just my imagination–I have heard this hatred out of the mouths of blacks I have known while in New York. How these laws “benefit” American Jews is beyond me…because they do NOT benefit American Jews! All these laws will do is create more hatred of Jews, from all sorts of Americans. When even well-known TV reporter Rick Sanchez is allowed to criticize this law on national television, on RT’s national television forum, you know that even mainstream media will not succumb to this (of course, Sanchez could be fired like Hill was, and there are demands now that Hill be allowed back on CNN.). And when even Jewish Congresspersons Bernie Sanders and Diane Feinstein are calling on the Senate to block the inclusion of this anti-BDS law into the Spending Bill on First Amendment grounds–and oh yeah, there are now Palestinian-Americans in Congress!–you know that this crapola will not fly!

So, put me in jail for criticizing Israel, governor! Because I don’t need your permission to criticize Israel, and I am NOT signing a loyalty oath to a nation THAT MURDERED 34 OF OUR SAILORS! You know, USS Liberty? And I MEAN LIBERTY!
