"Kill 'em." Texas Republican's message to TX governor..

In the days after George Floyd's death in police custody in Minneapolis last month, as massive protests against police brutality spread across Texas and other states, conservative power broker Steve Hotze of Houston called Gov. Greg Abbott's chief of staff to pass along a message.

"I want you to give a message to the governor," Hotze told Abbott's chief of staff, Luis Saenz, in a voicemail. "I want to make sure that he has National Guard down here and they have the order to shoot to kill if any of these son-of-a-bitch people start rioting like they have in Dallas, start tearing down businesses - shoot to kill the son of a bitches. That's the only way you restore order. Kill 'em. Thank you."

3. Oh, look. He has a health wellness center and peddles vitamins and supplements.

I presume he is a charlatan of the highest order.

10. Steve Hotze: Gosh, what a surprise!

For those people unfamiliar with Texas politics, Steve Hotze is not only a Republican Party power-broker, but also a leader of the conservative faction of the Texas Republican Party and the Texas Conservative (i.e. reactionary) movement. If you want to see the confluence between the Religious Right and other reactionary trends in the Texas GOP, there it is.

I believe it is the duty of ALL responsible voters of Texas, whether they call themselves Democrat, independent, Green, or Republican, to see to it that Steve Hotze and his political picks are permanently sidelined from the political process.
