Rashida Tlaib: The Senate’s Anti-BDS Bill Is an Unconstitutional Attack on Free Speech

Democracy Now!

A new Senate bill would allow state and local governments to boycott any U.S. companies which are engaged in a boycott against Israel. Democracy Now! spoke with Congressmember Rashida Tlaib, who has come out out against the bill, tweeting, “They forgot what country they represent. This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away.”

The Corporate Press has the long knives out for this strong woman. Matt Lewis of CNN ( I believe ) today in The Daily Beast compared her to that wanker Republican Michelle Bachmann.
AIPAC Sen. Ben Cardin is more like Jerry Falwell Jr. than the nutty Bachmann, but his goals are just as insane. I think this law is absolutely unconstitutional and completely bonkers. WTF-Whose country is this, anyway? :):):):slight_smile:

Make no mistake, this bill is Chuck Schumer’s baby. He has been pushing this and twisting arms for passage since AIPAC first laid the idea out for him.

This is only one more distraction from the walls that are closing in on the Trump clan.

When Humpty Dumpty finally falls off of his wall, the outrageously craziness will end.

Rashida Tlaib is a working-class woman and real fighter for the people who narrowly won her primary in a district that is majority black and heavily white. She did not win because of her identity (though she is a proud Palestinian-American woman, single mom and oldest of 14 siblings). She won because she is pro-worker.

The Zionists are sure to light out after her because of her background and because she is a fighter for the rights of the Palestinian peoples and FREE EFFEN SPEECH.

Support her any way you can as the slings and arrows rain down on this true progressive democratic socialist.

BDS!!!

Not just Schumer. but the majority of both duopoly parties have always supported Zionism and it gets worse with time.


#7

It’s much more than a distraction. It’s the Zionist lobby asserting its power in the new Congress.

Over 40 Senators hold duel Israeli-US citizenship. Over 70% of ALL political appointees hold duel Israeli-US citinzenship in our govetnment. Apparently forgetting they represent the US not Israel.
