You’ll have to carry me out on a slab before I compromise my defense of the Jewish people, their greatness, their history, their safety, and the state of Israel— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) July 20, 2019
I voted in the 2016 election.
I sat out the 2018 and 2020 elections.
Donald Trump’s obsequious relationship with Jewish donors and Israel is one of the top reasons why I didn’t vote to reelect him. I don’t support MIGA or Israel First.
It is true that Republican voters are pro-Israel. It is also true that younger voters, Independent voters and younger Republican voters who are nationalists are much less slavishly supportive of Israel. I think it is safe to say there is a consensus on this issue regardless of how various online personalities relate to each other. It is an applause line with older Republican voters who are Dispensationalists.
BTW, Israel is an apartheid state and Bibi Netanyahu is an ethnonationalist. The whole conflict in Gaza was sparked by Jewish settlers driving Palestinians out of their homes in east Jerusalem. The Gallup poll below was also taken before the latest outbreak of violence.
Note: Right now, the “carry me out on a slab” tweet is the biggest issue that people in our precincts cite as a gripe with Josh Hawley. Similarly, Ron DeSantis signing the anti-Semitism bill in Jerusalem may have impressed Jewish donors, but is by far the biggest turnoff to nationalist voters.
