Largest Texas Newspaper Criticizes Greg Abbott for ‘Posturing’ in Response to Protest

The Houston Chronicle criticized Governor Greg Abbott for his response to a pro-Palestinian protest at UT Austin, where large crowds gathered to demand divestment from Israel-affiliated businesses. Abbott sent in Texas’ DPS, leading to over 30 arrests on campus. Some critics labeled the protesters as antisemitic, while others argued they were calling for a ceasefire. The Chronicle warned against conflating antisemitism with protests against Israeli policies, urging universities to investigate real threats while defending the right to protest peacefully. Abbott faced backlash for his comments, where he stated that protesters belonged in jail and called for their expulsion from schools.
