Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Voted AGAIN this afternoon to secure our ally Israel. Dems AGAIN blocked it as they continue their shutdown. Anti-Israel and anti-Semite groups celebrating. Dems: are you proud of this?
3:39 PM – 10 Jan 2019

What a yutz.

Some of the responses:

Why is this your #1 Concern during the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT shutdown.

You have to admit, that’s a good point.

Dish it out but can’t take it, huh?

And the First Amendment won today, and you voted against federal law enforcement again the day after you said you appreciate law enforcement. Congrats I guess

GOP is all for freedom of speech, as long as it agrees with them.

Hey fellow MO citizens! Aren’t we proud of our newest Senator? He’s doing exactly what we said he’d do when those of us with a brain DIDN’T vote for him.

True that.


I wish you worried as much about your fellow Americans who are working with no pay or furloughed as you do Israel. The Russians are celebrating our government being shut down! Do your job, OPEN THE GOVERNMENT.

Constitutional lawyer in your bio. No 1st Amdt. concerns?

Until you kick Steve King out of your party, STFU about antisemitism.

Please vote to end shutdown so furloughees like myself can get back to work. I don’t give a shit about anything else right now. Thank You!

WOW! Way to go, dividing the nation. Remember that a great number of your constituents are democrats. You are sworn to represent all Missourians, even those of us who have Jewish heritage and are former republicans.

When everyone finds out that you are trying to criminalize free speech, how do you think it will go over?

Um. It’s Trump’s shutdown and getting the government open should be priority 1

Vote on appropriations bills to reopen the federal government. Everything else is secondary.

Why is this your #1 priority? Re-open the government.

When did Democrats get control of the Senate Josh?

Not a Democratic shutdown, but you already know that. Tell McConnell to release the hostages.

Have you voted to re-open the government?

Yes. Criticism of a foreign power – even an ally – should not restrict our own free speech here in the US. Quite a slippery slope. What other foreign nation’s policies should we not criticize? Russia? China? Turkey? Syria?

Hey Josh, you’re in the same party as Steve King. Have a great night!

Wow, you’re really not good at this at all.

Heh. Josh Hawley (r) needs to hire better political consultants to write his Tweets.

I think you should be focusing on a bi-partisan solution to the government shutdown instead of using non-priority legislation as an excuse to criticize the dems. Today Mitch McConnel prevented you from voting on a bill that was previously Senate approved. I am not proud of you.

Were we ever?

Lot of overlap in that Venn diagram..


you proud of denying hard earned basic paychecks to Americans?

Dems are doing their job. You sound like you’re still campaigning.

He has this thing about ladders.

Just Yuck

@Twitter @nytimes Josh you fit perfectly in the Trump era: stoking anger, fear & resentment. You are conflating disagreeing with Israel’s hard right govt w being anti Semitic. As an American Jew I support the Ds and condemn your incendiary tweet.

Which flag do you pledge allegiance to?

319 U.S. 624 West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (No. 591) [1943] – He doesn’t have to.

imagine being the type of rube that believes this hawley nonsense.

So you’re against the first amendment, then? Noted.

Why do you hate the First Amendment?

Because for right wingnut republicans there’s only one amendment that counts.

How do you not know Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is Jewish? The reason Trump calls him “Crying Chuck” is because Schumer became emotional when speaking about his great-grandmother, who was killed during the Holocaust.


And hopefully, they will keep doing it. Actions have consequences and how dare you say one damn word after @senatemajldr refused to allow a vote. Screw the lot of you.

Alrighty then.

The Pro 1st Amendment Senators are anti semites?
Bad take, Josh.

*believes the purpose of Israel is to create the Temple and Armageddon so as to force God to take them up to Heaven and send all their enemies, especially as it turns out the Israelites and their progeny, to a particularly cruel and depraved Hell…while the people in Heaven get to watch and revel in their suffering*

*accuses literally anyone else ever of being anti-semitic*”.

oh honey, this ain’t it

That appears to be a variant of “bless your heart”.

Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
