Andrew Cuomo - If You Boycott Israel, New York Will Boycott You

A blunt and chilling warning from New York governor, Andrew Cuomo.

Those who exercise their conscience to boycott Israel will pay a price, if New York has any say in the matter.

I recently signed the first executive order by a U.S. governor to help protect Israel from these pernicious efforts to punish it economically. My order ensures that no state agency or authority will engage in or promote any investment activity that would further the harmful and discriminatory BDS campaign. New York will identify institutions and companies, with the list made available to the public and updated regularly, that engage in boycotts, divestment or sanctions activity targeting Israel, either directly or through a parent or subsidiary. All state funds will then be divested from such entities.

If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

It sounds as though New York is not only going to throw out the 1st Amendment but it's beginning to work up an enemies list. Shouldn't be long before the Tories are calling on Justin to follow suit.

Since the anti-BDS motion passed our HoC handily, it is apparently the case that all Canadians are not allowed to think any negative thoughts about the state of Israel anyway. And especially not to utter them aloud in public.

I'm sure the busybodies at CSEC and CSE for the Armed forces keep handy little lists of free-thinkers just like Cuomo is getting the State of New York to assemble. For one shall be shamed for calling into question the motives of Binny Nit'n Yahoo and members of the right wing establishment in Israel.

Apparently we can have gorfes distributing racist literature via Canada Post in T.O. but to have one singular negative thought about Israel is a crime.

Biggest and most successful con game ever, conflating the Holocaust with Israelis grabbing Palestinian land as if it were all one and the same thing. The thought police are out to get us all.
