Secession Talk in Texas

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

It’s the 75th episode of the Left in Texas podcast and Imad and I can hardly believe it. Every time we think the fever pitch of Texas politics will die down another salvo is fired.

Jade Helm is upon us and added to the “lawlessness” rhetoric about the U.S. Supreme court decisions, conspiracy theorists are now infiltrating the mainstream of the Republican Party.

For more evidence see the SBOE’s erasing of history from textbooks and the Texas Nationalist launch of a “Take Texas Back” tour to get a referendum for “Independence” put on the GOP’s 2016 Primary ballet. Good luck guys that sounds fun!

We discuss all this and more (like the Russian conspiracy to get Texas to secede, and it’s new “straight flag”) in this latest edition — so please listen and be sure to subscribe!
