P.I.D. Radio 5/4/24: It’s About Control 


WHEN THE U.S. government does nearly anything with bipartisan support, you can bet there’s a deep state agenda behind the scenes. 

We discuss H.R. 6090, the Antisemitism Awareness Act, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 320–91. 21 Republicans voted against it, but 133 Democrats crossed the aisle to support the bill which now is in the hands of the Senate. 

We support Israel and its people. Anyone who’s followed us for any length of time knows that. In fact, by the time you hear this program we will likely be in Israel for the fourth time. 

But this bill, which purports to enforce a prohibition on “forms of discrimination rooted in antisemitism as vigorously as against all other forms of discrimination” is an unconstitutional infringement of our First Amendment right to speak freely. The House bill adopts a definition of antisemitism according to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance: 

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities. 

Antisemitism, and all forms of discrimination based on race, color, or creed, is wrong. But that definition is so broad that it can and will be used to clamp down free speech. Examples of antisemitism given by the IHRA are ideas and policies we reject, but the Constitution guarantees the right of Americans to say things that others find repugnant or hateful. It should not be illegal to criticize Israel collectively or any individual Jewish person. If passed, this bill could be used as a legal hammer to punish anyone who does. 

In short, the bill isn’t about protecting anyone, it’s about control. But in 21st century America, banning “hate speech” trumps protecting free speech. A majority in the House of Representatives violated their oath of office by voting “aye” on H.R. 6090. 

The same is true of the so-called TikTok ban that passed Congress in April. It was justified as a way to protect Americans from Chinese surveillance, but what it actually does is give the president power to shut down any website he or she declares to be under foreign influence. As with the antisemitism bill, it’s not about protection—it’s about control. 

Sharon shares her takeaways from a new book by Annie Jacobsen titled Nuclear War: A Scenario. Jacobsen is a gifted writer who tackles some very important topics, and her latest is a sobering look at a plausible sequence of events triggered by a nuclear missile launch at the United States by North Korea.
