Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame to Joe Biden and the Democratic Party for their treatment of the National Guard last week. Our men and women went to serve and were treated shamefully.

I saw pictures of troops walking down the streets and I didn’t see any provision for winter garb.

No provision was made for housing, or sleeping. I saw no picture of blankets, just our troops laying on cold concrete floors.

I saw no picture of food being provided for them. I saw pictures of our National Guard laying on cold concrete floors.

Thank you to Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity for letting us, the public, know about this injustice.

Thank you to our Governor for ordering them back to Texas. I neither saw or heard a word of thanks from Joe Biden.

These are our troops and deserve our thanks and commendations for their service.

I will personally say thank you to all our men and women for their service, and for all they do for our country.

Maxine Mathias, Victoria

Spot On Maxine! It is strange that during the rioting and burning by the left there was no call nor need for the Guard but once someone from the right acts up it's time to call up 25,000 Guard members! It seems as though just the thought that something might happen will keep some 5,000 there until March is the latest from the Dems. I guess that when you say that 75 million people are racist, white supremist that need to be deprogramed you might be afraid that you really ticked them off. It's funny but several conservative Black gentlemen have stated it was a surprise to them that they were described as "racist, white supremist" by the Dems.

Gov Abbott did well by calling our Guard home. This was nothing but a grand standing charade by the Dems!

Really Maxine? Obviously you missed the gracious hand off of America to our new president. If it wasn’t for the confabulation of a sore loser not accepting his loss, all those guard members could have been home watching the inauguration of the new president on TV....Glen Ullman

What does the democrats have to do with the overnight stay at a parking garage? You might check with the Capitol police and whoever in the national guard in charge of accommodations . Abbott was grandstanding as usual because the bulk of the guard was going to leave after the inauguration.

Mike, Parler sent word back that my reliable democratic source, Mike Gomez, was wrong it wasn't a rumor they were shutdown. Seems to be happening to a lot of conservative groups.

Bill Hopmann

The election was a sham. Even a cretin would know that.

Glenn Wilson

Bill, don't be so hard on yourself.

Really Glen, the first day your new POTUS cost thousands of jobs with shutting down the pipeline construction which means Canada will build a pipeline to their west coast and sell the oil to China. Cost millions of future jobs in energy by shutting down future exploration on federal land. But the real winner was taking the time to insure that boys were able to compete in girls sports! I guess I missed the massive protest demanding that this change be enacted by Executive Order on day one.
