Jews are such a poor, oppressed minority that they are able to legally restrict criticism about themselves.
From Florida Watchdog:
A bill that defines anti-Semitism as racism and requires Florida schools and universities to regard it as racism was unanimously approved by the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee Tuesday.
But free speech advocates warn House Bill 741 faces a potential “Pandora’s box” of legal challenges unless hate speech directed against Jews is not clearly separated from political criticism of the state of Israel.
HB 741, sponsored by Rep. Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay, next goes to the House Judiciary and Education committees before reaching chamber floors for adoption.
HB 741 amends Florida’s hate crime statute to include anti-Semitism, which it defines “as a perception of the Jewish people, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jewish people,” through such acts as:
“Calling for, aiding, or justifying violence against Jews.
“Alleging myths about a world Jewish conspiracy or that Jews control the media, economy, government, or other institutions.
“Accusing Jewish people of being responsible for real or imaginary wrongdoing by a single Jewish person, group, or the state of Israel, or for acts of non-Jews.
“Accusing the Jewish people of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.
“Accusing Jewish citizens of countries other than Israel of being more loyal to Israel than their own nations.
“Demonizing, applying a double standard to, or delegitimizing Israel.”
This bill labels as a “hate crime” any criticism or even analysis of Jewish political and financial influence.
Most importantly, the bill ultimately attacks the truth of Scripture. The Bible tells us that,
“ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men. Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.”
(1 Thessalonians 2:14-16)
Here Scripture plainly states that the Jews are contrary to all men, and seek to keep men from God’s saving truth.
Satan and his special people, the Jews, rage against the Gospel of peace and reconciliation with God. They will use all of the power they have to blot out God’s love towards mankind in the name of “fighting hate.”
