"Our states are sovereign. The states agree to have the federal government rule over them. A governor can tell the federal government that they're not going to do this or they're not going to do that. A governor has incredible power," he continues. "We're in a situation because Texas, the people of Texas, decided to shut the border down. Joe Biden deployed federal forces to literally cut the brand new fencing and barbed wire so that the invasion could continue," reveals Hibbs. "You don't want to pick a fight with Texas"and I'm not saying that as a joke. Their patriotism for their 'country of Texas' is not to be played with." Texas is not alone in their fight against an administration that is fighting tooth and nail to keep the border open. To date, 25 Republican governors have voiced their support of Gov. Abbott, as well as former President Donald Trump and former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.
Ok Jack. First of all, the states have already agreed to be governed by the federal government. The last time they disagreed we did indeed have a civil war. The framing here is what is so wrong. Texas is acting like the south did prior to the civil war. If you want to glorify insurrection, go right ahead but that is not of God. States are sovereign in that they can pass state laws, but they must adhere to federal laws and the constitution. Stop with the disinformation. The people of Texas did not decide to shut the border down. That is ridiculous. One idiot politician did. Look how Hibbs glibly phrases what is at heart insurrection. Patriotism is in regard to America. Texas is not its own country. The fact that other Republican sycophants support this nonsense impresses nobody. I might add here, nobody picked a fight with Texas. Their governor is picking a fight with the federal government. They can bring in all the weekend warriors they want. Read your history and see what the federal government did in the south when they refused to integrate black children into schools. Once again though, why is a pastor adding fuel to this fire? Why is he stoking the resentment and animosity? Jack Hibbs should be ashamed of himself, repent and apologize.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration continues to flip-flop between saying the border is secure and then blaming Republicans in Congress for the crisis at the border. It is mismanagement under the Biden administration that has led Hibbs to the belief that the U.S. may soon be looking at it's second Civil War. "I'm sorry to tell you. The powers that are pulling the strings to this country are literally bringing us to a civil war. It's the first time since 1861 where we're looking at soldiers, possibly shooting at other soldiers on the same team"States," laments Hibbs.
"I'm telling you, as an old guy, this is wild. Young people, you may be watching some history unfold that you didn't plan on experiencing," he continues. "Can we pray right now for our nation?" concludes Hibbs. "It is actually falling apart [and] we're watching it happen."
It is falling apart because people like Jack Hibbs does nothing but help it deteriorate. Read your bible and see what God says about the immigrant. Do not hand me scripture fragments about the border of Israel because you clearly do not understand what you are saying. Jack Hibbs however should know better. Instead of merely commenting that we might be heading for civil war, how about doing something positive. Maybe preach the gospel. Maybe not take sides. Maybe not pretend like Texas would actually survive an encounter with the Federal government because they most assuredly would not. Maybe take the side that is not supporting placing razor wire, circular saws and even barbed wire under the water in the Rio Grande. I understand that some people hate immigrants and blame them for everything. Jesus is not one of them beloved. Texas is wrong on this issue. They are refusing to listen to the most Republican, Conservative Supreme Court in history. The founders understood that occasionally Governors and the federal government might not agree so the check and balance they instituted was the Judicial Branch, ending with the Supreme Court. Greg Abbott is acting like a petulant child who has been told NO! You cannot try to kill people crossing the border! That is bad enough, but Jack Hibbs is worse because as a pastor he lends credibility to this garbage and damages the witness for Christ. Repent Jack, while there is still time.
