  1. Well I’m sure this will surprise about zero people, Austin has the least diverse (of thought) city council in the nation. Pretty revealing clip from council member Greg Casar here about low income people in particular needing access this “healthcare” (ending a pregnancy) because of the burden the expense would be. Unbelievable

  2. Greg encouraging murder and depopulation. Hard to watch Austin being held hostage!

    Joe, we stand with you.#BanAbortion

  3. We have a govt run by warmongering pedophiles, controlled by bankers and special interests, who will kill their own but you think they won't lie to you? And you think #whitesupremacy is the biggest threat???? LMAOOOOO

  4. I work 60 + hours a week and I’m getting priced out but we have millions for homeless and abortion promotion! This City is turning into a disgusting cess pool of progressive ideology. These elected officials need to be removed!! We need republicans in city Government
