    Default First Senate Bill of new Congress: Allowing gov't to punish people who boycott Israel

    How is boycotting Israel anything other than free speech:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.86674ddb6cb5

    In support of Israel, Rubio’s bills would affirm the legal authority of state and local governments to restrict contracts and take other actions against those “engaged in BDS conduct.” Several states are facing lawsuits after taking action against workers supporting BDS boycotts of Israel.

    I was just going to post this. Thank you for doing so.

    The righties/conservatives are pushing this. I should call them fake conservatives. There is directly unconstitutional. This takes away first amendment rights.

    Anyone against this is anti-constitution

    And again, its not weird to anyone that congress is so concerned about another country they are literally making bills that go against our constitution?

    I agree with you too. That is BS. Start a thread on it and i will contribute.

    The only difference is one is a domestic issue that goes against our constitution, the other is us worried about another country that goes against our constitution.

    How does boycotting traveling to a place go against our Constitution? I agree with you on the Israel issue in this case, but I clicked on it knowing it was 99% you'd be first reply. You didn't let us down.

    thanks! As i told in the first reply you're referring to, I stated I would have started the thread. I'm passionate about it because the issue isn't getting covered very much, and even more so, I'm hearing zilch from the big first amendment pushers. Can't pick and choose things that are or are not unconstitutional.

    And howy, I'm glad you're on board with denouncing this crap.

    I am all for boycotts, public demonstrations, and campus protests for or against every issue or group of people in the world. Such actions are a basic human right whether or not they comply with the law and they are often the only way to get the attention of people in positions of power who can do something about your concerns.

    I support anyone willing to publicly stand up for their beliefs and face the consequences for their actions. That goes for neo-fascists disrupting left wing parades as well as college liberals shouting down speeches by right wing demagogues. The only lines I am willing to draw are against physical harm to people and damage to the property of others. Disrupting bus, train, and plane schedules as well as highway traffic are fair game as long as the participants understand the legal consequences.

    Boooo. Certain "demonstrations" are not at all admirable. If you are disrupting people's schedules and causing traffic backups....you are indirectly causing lots of harm to varying degrees. That's why the BLM movement, while having a good message, was/is a major nuisance. They were pushing their message at the expense of others, which probably created more backlash than support.

    Counterpoint: I'm sure the tea drinkers in greater Boston were inconvenienced, too. Progress and change have their price.

    I'm actually the first to start a thread bashing Israel.

    That being said, this is more about congress inacting a bill to take away first amendment rights for the favor of another country. I have a problem with that.

    Inconvenience is a bit different. Making people late for appointments, work, picking up children, etc........?

    Not to mention people rushing because they are behind schedule causes other hazardous situations.

    Quite a bit different than missing a bit of tea.

    Hahaha. Is your thinking cap on? This is nothing more than the Republicans trying to disrupt the Democrats, especially their radical left wing which hates America. One of the few times the Deep State and us real Americans #MAGA are aligned.
