Yeah, Washington is considering a bill to make BDS illegal here, too. Any college or other institution that divests itself of Israeli stocks will lose their state funding.
I grew up in a Constitutional Republic with a Bill of Rights. It was a pretty prosperous nation where a working man could work one job and feed and house his family.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
To me, that means that We the People have a right to our own opinions and have the right to act upon them, without threats by the government or other agencies.
Most of us have known for years that most members of the House and Senate have been supported by huge donations from AIPAC, and their obligation is to do what they are told if it supports the Israeli regime. Israel is being hurt by the BDS movement, so it has told its lackeys in the government to criminalize it.
So, our representatives, presumably elected by us, are now to do the bidding of Israel and AIPAC against We the People. They’ve probably been told that their gravy train will dry up if they do not obey.
So, We the People of the
United States Fourth Reich are to cease any criticism of a cunning and financially controlling foreign country under a penalty of a $250,000 fine and twenty years in jail.
Israel has been the tail wagging the dog for many years. Now it is telling the dog to bite off its own legs and not even say WOOF!
I think perhaps it is time to impeach and fire the House and Senate on grounds of treason. They are officials in the pay of a foreign government and this action makes it pretty plain. To me, that is definitely a “High Crime and misdemeanor.”
