Whether you support a boycott against Israel or not this is a slippery slope to head down.
Trump has repeatedly railed about making it easier to sue people who exercise their free speech right against him and his administration, the passage of a bill such as this would make it incrementally easier to criminalize other protests and boycotts.
If Trump had his way the media would only publish handouts from his administration and the entire population would spend their day sucking up to him in the same manner his cabinet and staff members do.
When it comes to a draconian approach nothing is off the table for this current administration and makes me wonder if Trump’s supporters are tired of “winning” yet as he and they walk around with a big L plastered on their forehead?
There’s little that has a shock value anymore when it comes to the conservative agenda but for members of a party that insists it all about individual rights and liberalism to sign onto a piece of legislation like this it should be something of wake up for those who like their conservative counterparts believe party allegiance trumps all other considerations.
Liberals should take note this is a bipartisan effort and point their fingers at both sides of aisle if it’s really about the values they express.
