    You couldn't respond to his cogent, well-reasoned counter argument with facts and logic so you resorted to meme'ing. Sad! :)

    Bro, put a cross next to that star of David and I am down with this new flag. It speaks proudly to America's strong Judeo-Christian foundations!

    I’d be more for this bill if it meant any country not on a sanctioned list cannot be boycott if you want to do business with the US. Why give Israel more importance than Colombia for instance?

    I started to, because this is an area I like and have studied, but the more I looked at the post the less sense it made.

    I've been delayed, but before long, I expect to submit a post for the president's sticky thread talking about the prevailing currents of the discussion surrounding Israel. This situation with Rubio is an extension of a decision to treat criticism of Israel as anti-Semitism. It has been promulgated by the Israeli government and it has been widely accepted throughout the legislative branch of the US government. Ironically, that's a politically driven doctrine that tries to sidestep the individual responsibility of members of the Israeli government who are the decision makers, and who are doing so for solely political reasons, as far as I can tell.*


    *
    That last part forms the basis for opening the discussion in the aforementioned sticky. Why should the government be able to hide behind "If you criticize us for anything it's because you hate Jews"? And, are the criticisms of them I've seen solid facts or are they exaggerated for partisan reasons? Anyway, if there's one lesson Donald Trump has taught us, it is surely that criticizing one person for actions you disagree with is not the same thing as hating the whole country or its people, regardless of how serious the issue is, IMO.

    Oh yeah, to boot I can't believe there is a single American with a pulse that doesn't consider this a huge issue of free speech.

    Amazing. Look at all the anti-racists being anti-Semites on here.

    Explain.

    Or, to use language you understand,

    Not an argument.

    That is fine for a private business but the government should not be telling the people who to boycott or not.
    Thomas Jefferson is spinning in his fucking grave.

    That was me that brought up the baker to provide an analogy for Farmer Brown to better understand. Your response to me was well off the mark and very confusingly worded.

    Serious question, are you high?

    Because the actor here disassociating her is the State. Per the Constitution, the State cannot discriminate based on political speech, which SCOTUS has long held applies to boycotts.
