Neocon Watch: Tony Gonzalez is Not Who He Seems

In politics, some things never change. Above all, when activists remain complacent with regards to the elected officials who routinely backstab them.

The 2020 elections have been no exception to this rule.

There are far too many politicians who talk a big game about limiting government and upholding conservative values. Now some are talking about closing out never-ending wars.

Sounds good, right?

Well, not everything in politics works in such a straightforward fashion. 

Despite Republicans having solid performances down-ballot in the 2020 elections, there’s reason to believe that most of these freshmen will likely be more of the same. 

The freshman Congressman of Texas’s 23rd district Tony Gonzalez appears to be of that mold.

Gonzalez was a National Security Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), an interventionist think tank that is fanatically obsessed with regime change. The freshmen representative confirmed suspicions that he is a neocon hack last year around Thanksgiving time when he criticized former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. The former congresswoman was pushing for whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden and Julian Assange to be pardoned.

Gonzalez tweeted back on November 27, 2020 that “Snowden and Assange are Russian agents who pose a direct threat to US National interests. Clearly@TulsiGabbard is full of more than just turkey.”

Gonzalez replaced Will Hurd, a former employee for the CIA and fixture of the GOP establishment, to represent Texas’s 23rd district. He first had a heated race with an America First Republican candidate Raul Reyes, in which Gonzalez only won by a razor thin margin of 7 votes

America First nationalists have to be on point regarding their vetting of candidates in the upcoming years. Elected officials like Gonzalez will likely make more damning statements and moves that prove he is a Swamp aspirant. Like all serious political activity with the goal of restoring accountability in D.C., vigilance will be needed to keep Gonzalez and his ilk in check. 

If we fail to do so, these politicians will continue to screw us over and railroad our agenda to reform American politics.
