Farouk Shami… Running for governor of the state of Texas. Palestine born, anti-Israeli, Farouk Shami. This guy makes me sick. I’ve seen him several times and met him on occasion. I saw the guy sit down at a restaurant with his driver, and then send his driver to sit at another table. He thinks because he has worked hard and lived the American dream (I can respect that) that he can be governor. Governor of the state of Texas! It’s ridiculous to even think of. Now this ridiculous man has taken another step to show how misguided and out of touch with reality he is.
Farouk Shami accused former Houston Mayor Bill White of being a racist, because White has a political ad in which he says he was born in San Antonio. ??? How does this make White racist? How is that not an important and relevant piece of information? All things being equal would you vote for the Texas native, or the Palestinian? And all things are not equal! I mean, I’m not going to be voting for Bill White (not in an election featuring Kay Bailey Hutchison and Rick Perry), but beyond that I don’t understand how any Texas could support a man like Farouk Shami! It grinds my gears. It’s so frustrating that I can hardly think straight.
