Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida recently signed a bill which added ‘anti-Semitism’ to the list of outlawed forms of discrimination in Florida, equating it with other forms of racial discrimination, reported the Tallahassee Democrat.
The major problem many have with this bill is that the definition of Anti-semitism under this law includes everything from saying the “Jews control the media,” “Jews are more loyal to Israel than to America,” to many other questionable statements that are protected under the first amendment of the United States constitution. It is also now illegal to question the number of Jews who died in the Holocaust. No other genocide has this protection in the world.
Even though Christians are the most persecuted group of people throughout the world, for some reason DeSantis thought that signing a law that goes directly against the first amendment of the United States would be a good idea. DeSantis even signed the bill while visiting Israel, and then again in Florida upon returning from his trip.
Following the signing of the bill, many Christians have posed several important questions about this new law, namely that there are no laws against openly blaspheming Christianity or Jesus. There are also no laws against accusing all Catholics of being pedophiles and no broad words with blanket definitions like ‘Anti-semitism’ that protects Christians from the criticism they receive on a constant basis.
It is also not yet a hate crime to fly a pride flag outside Chick-fil-A, but what can you expect when Christians don’t have the powerful lobby to push for laws like this like Jews do with AIPAC. Many Christians are wondering if AIPAC money is behind this new law signed by DeSantis.
There are currently 26 states in America that have their own versions of antisemitism bills, and all of them go directly against the first amendment. Most of these laws prevent private businesses from boycotting the state of Israel, even though America was built on boycotts, but hey who actually cares about facts.
Outside of all of this, actors in Hollywood including Jewish actors have openly admitted that Jews are vastly overrepresented in Hollywood.
