"We're Here to Help": ACLU Schools Marco Rubio on First Amendment Rights and His Anti-BDS Bill

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

The ACLU took to social media on Wednesday to refute Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-Fla.) assertion that the rights group's opposition to his anti-boycott legislation is "baseless," and offer him some guidance on understanding the First Amendment.

Sorry Marco, no matter what you do AIPAC ain’t going to make you president. Go buy some candy with your shiny new shekels.

“Israeli firm pitched Don Jr. on election meddling scenario in 2016 — and it sounds exactly like the Russia scheme”. Recycled American foreign aid to israel back to the source. BDS.

I don’t know about liberal - I never use that word - but I wouldn’t say there are many if any progressives on that list. Ron Wyden is the only one to make a case for that I recognize and he is obviously disqualified now. Primary them all as @RockyMountainView said. There are plenty of progressives who voted the right way. We need a lot more of them.

HI RockymountianView: oh my so many Dems… and they all ask Me for money----hasn’t AIPAC given them enough already? Mr. Wyden----I like you but what is this?
No one is surprised about Schumer-----but omg, so many DEMS, so many soulless people-----sigh. I can’t tell some of you apart from the GOPers. : (

Democrats and the MSM will set their hair on fire if there is even a hint of a Russian connection to US elections but AIPAC and JStreet buying politicians by the truck full gets crickets. I so want AOC to go after Chuckle Schumer’s Senate seat. She knocked of Crowley when everyone said she couldn’t.

Anti, how do non-twitterers access this story?

Rubio - extremism in plain sight.
Normalized authoritarianism.
An American tradition.

There are 104 senators, over 40 of these are democrats holding duel Israeli-US citizenship. Isn’t this a little like an OXYMORON? Mark Rubio, elected to be the eternal anti cuba anti Venezuela candidate working for Israel. This is what happens when the political elite mate and bred poison like Marko napolean Rubio.

I found this list of dual citizens serving in the israeli occupied territory of Washington, DC, but it was compiled in March of 2018 and could have changed since then.

Hi Yemoot—oh my , i didn’t know that----I guess oaths to office are of little value…and sadly Yemoot—that makes a democratic republic moot. : (
