We’ve Already Got an “Antisemitism Awareness Act.” It’s Called the First Amendment.

“Under the ‘Antisemitism Awareness Act,’ a university could lose its federal funding if it allowed Jewish students and faculty to express their political opinions. Not because those opinions are ‘antisemitic,’ but because those opinions don’t toe a pro-Israel line. We already have laws against violence and harrassment, which apply whether the victims are Jewish or not. We also have a First Amendment which protects the right to free speech, even if that speech criticizes Israel — and even if that speech is ACTUALLY antisemitic — whether the speakers are Jews or non-Jews.” (05/11/24)
